    No more promises. (may contain slight nudity)

    There is some irony in looking forward to getting 18 and then realizing how much time you have wasted. Frankly I regret not having invested enough time into drawing and networking even though the path was chosen. Now it's time to get to action to compensate for lost opportunities. it is my last year at school and it's a matter of days till I am on my own, so I've got to do something, not just dream.

    Awesome stuff dude. You're my age (I just turned 18) and you're way ahead of me it seems. Loving the sketches, would love to see some more finished stuff.
    Keep it coming brah.

    Don't worry man. You're young and really talented. It seems like you know anatomy, rendering, line weight and all that stuff very well. Look at me, I'm turning 21 next year and you're waaay ahead of me.

    Now show us more dude!

    Hey, you're miles ahead from where I was at 18, don't be so hard on yourself! You've got a good range of practice here, will be good to see some more.

    Thanks a lot for the kind comments Makes me really really inspired to go on growing. There is a psychology(which I'm hopefully starting to break) that makes it hard to believe that what I do may be of much value to anyone else...that makes me too cautious sometimes.
    Here is a photoshop custom brush test from today. Not much, I know. Got to scan some sketchbook pages for tomorrow.

    Sorry, couldn't reach scanner today, so no scans. Here are some experiments with the same brush as in the previous post. Both pictures need more work, first one has weird proportions and the second one has very rough hands.

    cool sketchbook. i feel like i've been wasting time too, even though i'm only 16 and a half. it's great that you're super motivated now though
    awesome last post. i really like those brush strokes on that tan and cyan one.

    keep doing anatomy studies and keep up the hard work and you'll get back on track no problem. although part of me thinks "on track" isn't really definable by age. more like improvement rate. yeah?

    I feel so bad for not updating for a long time and the stuff I've drawn during this period is uninteresting. I mean I have to choose more challenging things to draw, which is one of the main goals of this sketchbook. I guess I have gone through creative block. However, there is more free time in connection with holidays so I can do more studies and creature designs/

    your sketches are pretty fantastic! the thing i like about your images is that it has this quality that pulls people to it; the angle, the expression, the pose just works. in your drawings of people, there's personality in them, though mostly they seem defiant =P.

    i would love to see more from you. will be watching this SB ^^

    Some pages, hopefully there will be a couple more today. The A5 sketchbook seems too small sometimes.
