I figured it would be time to get my behind out of the lurking shadows, get a grip, and get over my fear of the sketchbook forum. Lots of getting to do.
making decisions on paper - some are personal, some are purely aesthetic.
If you guys would be so kind as to leave feedback, it'd be extremely appreciated (:

The figures are really strong, some of the background elements seem like they could use a bit more work but it's still amazing. How long have you been doing this?
I have nothing interesting to say but here's my sketchbook, perhaps you'll think I've drawn something interesting XD http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=167964
Thank you to both!
Strange1900; I'm assuming you mean drawing? For a while now, although the main reason I'm here is so that I can hopefully get better at it! Thank you so much.
Yeah, I've been feeling the lack of potential in the backgrounds - something I need to work on more.
Seage; if I throw all of my school stuff in here, people will end up blind! hah.
I like the surreal aesthetic in the pencil sketch of the guy with three hands. I think your pixel art stands out the most. Keep drawing!

Hey, Alexander Supertramp here.
Nice to see you made a CA.
Just lurked around and stumbled onto it.
Keep up the good work! I love the last update, the coloring style is very nice, keep it up.
in your latest update, these two finished illustrations are beautiful. Very nice poetic approach. Regarding anatomy in your sketches, seems like you know what you're doing. Even as some things are a little off, looks like you did it with purpose. Overall, I really love your work Keep it up!
The illustration in post 8 really impressed me! Great stuff. Your finished pieces are all great
Continue pushing yourself, studying and having fun and you will reach great places!
Glad you updated here. The sketches are fantabitozi. And you KNOW i love that painting of the girl up there. Totally blew me away. I was like "this latina did not just paint this" but alas, you did, lol.
Loverly, I want more though, and im sure im not the only one. So oblige me!! (Is that even the right way to use that word?)
Ivan; Thank you! Greatly appreciated. As for the anatomy, I'm glad! Although I for sure need to start using more references, I think.
Alternative; thank you!
Seage; haha you silly person. thank you, dear!
Alright, a few more pages from my sketchbook (I really am trying to get into the habit of drawing more, until I can just get into the habit of doing so every day for a few hours - have to make time. baby steps, though)_
Most from imagination. Most of the men figure were done from observing the one male I can actually get naked to model for me (fiance)
Girl's body in the middle of right page, and shoes (top left same page), are referenced.
Also a semi finished illustration that started out mostly as just a sketch.

MY SKETCHBOOK!!! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=180543
wow brilliant sketchbook, ill be following this, i really like figure studies with the faint bones underneath
Been kind of slow here lately. I've barely had time to breathe lately.
Here's a few more pages, and a bit of practice with the good ol' brushes.
All from imagination.
I really need to start using more references from time to time.
Currently working on on 18x24 paper. Will post more images as I finish the composition and fill up the page.
Bit of a color study. Trying a bit of a new process.
Acrylics and watercolor.
I really have to start minding my anatomy, even if its just a painting exercise.
mattgamer; it's my favorite too so far! thank you!!
Ostroponis; thank you so much for following my sketchbook!
I leave you all for now with this:
Things I have learned today:
- The best times for me to paint seem to be late at night, when everyone else is asleep.
- There is no better porn for artists than dickblick.com
- I am in love with tiny brushes.
- You know how people wish their scanners would pick up all the details? Sometimes I wish mine did not. You can see every. single. bump. of the paper's texture - even after scanning at 500 DPI and scaling down. Or maybe I'm just bad with ratios.
- Sometimes, not knowing what you're doing turns out to be the best of things.
"What you need to know about the next piece, is contained in the last piece. Your work is your guide: a complete, comprehensive, limitless reference book on your work. There is no other such book, and it is yours alone. It functions this way for no one else. Your fingerprints are all over, and you alone know how they got there." - Art & Fear: Observations on the perils (and rewards) of Art Making.

Great update mis I love the attention to detail on that A/W painting.
Lol@ the things you learned today. I agree with all of them except the 2nd last. I'll trade u, haha.
Great quote btw.
I adore those digital pieces, and your use of complimentary colors!
