Hey man! A lot of improvement! I love to see these sketches!
I was looking at this break down you did of a figure, and it really reminded me of a figure drawing teacher i had at massArt. Since you are from mass, i was wondering if you knew him. Paul Rahilly, If you dont, get him out. He still teaches in mass.

Please stop by my sketchbook!
Rotor - yea man i hear you on that. i do have a bad habit of rendering every material in a similar way, i really do need to do alot more material studies. but thanks for dropping in man! i appreciate it!
Alternative - ha dude thats crazy! yea i had paul! for three semesters, loved that guy haha! he was a straight shooter, the guy used to always sit next to you and tel you how much worse you had gotten, and then tell you a hilarious story from life drawing in the bronx. thats awesome that you had him too! maybe we were in the same class.
Mike L - hey man! thanks! glad you dig it! i finally got around to scanning in some traditional stuff! not on your level, but im doing more graphite lately. i think you are the cause of that haha.
some scanned stuff! E N J O I !
Hey, great inked pages. I like the sense of chaos that you've created on paper.
Regarding the digital works, I think you can give bigger brushes a shot. Just lay down the big shapes at first to see if the composition is working. Especially on this one I feel big shapes could have gone a long way in popping the forms. Then you could've gone for a smaller brush and laid down the vein-like formations.
I hope I'm making sense. Late night and all.
Woah… Your paintings are awesome!
The sketches inspire me.
rumpenstiltzkin - thanks!! yea im gonna be working on those shapes when i get some free time!
Medusoid - oh god no! haha the rendering looks like shit! but those were only test renders with default lighting. ive got some better stuff up my sleeve...
karen_ - thanks!! i love pen sketches! yours always inspire me! haha yea, my vehicles and i guess perspective for that matter sucks... gotta keep working on it!
Vritra - thanks for the crit! and i do usually begin with big loose brush strokes, but when i go in with the smaller brushes, i tend to get waaay too carried away, and always end up sacrificing my forms when i go into details. i really need to start zooming in and out more! and flipping the canvas! i never do that!
Greenhouse - thanks man! glad to hear it!!
ok heres just a rough figure sketch for the current chow. i made myself into wolverine, with gills so he can breathe underwater, and he also has ice powers too... (not yet shown) . . .
XD no no, I ment in general lol
But that cars still waaaay better than what I can do, I hate rendering shit, it just hurts my head. Maybe I'll try it again sometime though. Oh btw do you know how to animate things in Adobe Flash? I think I found what I needed tutorial wise but I'm looking for a traditional animation style where you draw it frame by frame and not having much luck.
Medusoid - umm yea , well kind of a little bit. im taking a class in flash animation right now actually. its pretty cool what you can do with it, but when you get into the actionscript side of things it gets pretty complex.
Yor - ha thanks man! yea i was planning on taking that hellboy alot further, but it was sort of just a loose sketch that turned into that.
ok some sketches of Raven from metal gear solid.
I've seen you posting around the sketchbook forum everywhere. I should of checked your sketchbook sooner. Awesome stuff. I really like the hellboy sketch and your version of wolverine haha.
Cool sb , great comic on the previous page
Ivan P. - thanks man!
Medusoid - haha your right, im still building it up as i go. thanks for dropping by man! i always appreciate it!
heres another sketch for the siren thing... still no real ideas though haha just excuses to draw naked women. i gotta be more original!
nice CHOW - its more than high time I did that myself, because I love to see your contributions.
One crit from me would be to add a few more planes on your pencil renderings. For example, rather than trying to round off those legs, try and make them simpler and planar. I think this would help give the impression of depth
ThomasM - hey man, thanks for dropping by! i hear what you mean on the planes. i have a difficult time seeing where certain planes intersect. also when you should sacrifice the large scale planes for more complicated, smaller ones. i need to get back into life drawing so badly.
You have a knack for the exaggerated; the kind of art bursting with energy. In time, I think, you'll make a very good superhero genre comic artist (this is not a conjecture, but from direct experience). Even in the supersaiyajin piece, you brought out the energy well with his expression and the energy lines. Very commendable.
Your digital work has gotten a lot better, especially the use of values. You're using softer transitions, which can look very good with time.
Maybe you can look at doing some anatomy/gesture studies though. Your poses are energetic, but more often than not they lack a certain sense of rhythm. That can only be corrected from quick gesture studies. Just mapping the human mass, seeing how the various parts overlap, and creating shapes/negative spaces.
That's all I have this time around, I'm afraid. Keep the works coming.
Careful on the placement of breasts (even exaggerated ones). In your pen sketches you have the habit of placing the breasts to high up on the torso. Also, no matter how exaggerated, breasts are still going to be affected by gravity and deform and sag in one way or another (The Siren kinda looks like she has some stiff implants lol). Other than that things are looking pretty solid. Keep it up!
Veshkau - haha thanks man!! im working on it!
Ghast - hey dude thanks for stopping by! and for the crit! i hear ya on that too, i have recently realised this, and still have a bad habit of doing it. i havent been to a life drawing class in a while. i definately need to get back into one! hey i see your from boston too! sweet.
just a quick sketch for the final cow piece.
Yo! Great movement in this one. You've got the shape and anatomy down. Try using some color light. A lot of your stuff graduates towards plain/neutral white, so the content looks kinda washed out. DBZ dude is an exception--the yellow light is awesome. Maybe some cold green or blue for the dog.
YihyoungLi - hey man, thanks! and thanks for pointing this out, because ive just recently noticed that my art tends to lose some of its saturation on other monitors. im not saying this is the only reason, but i think ive noticed alot of my secondary colors arent showing up when i view my art on a different monitor. anyways i will look into working on this, thanks man!
