Good new stuff here! I like those movie thumbnails you did on posts #162 and #164. The hands look also really good and all the figure poses. For crit, I feel that when you do graphite works they lack some values. I mean they could really use some darker darks on them as well. Like this lates pencil/graphite work. But anyways keep pushing those studies, you are doing fiine!
Thanks for the comments!
Satupeikko:Yeah i noticed earlier! I use a softer pencil now.After uploading these I tried to fix some of them digitally .I'm working on a different computer now so I can't touch them.
I won't be posting here I guess untill the summer if I'm lucky(inbetween homes).
Here are two walkcycles I tried still a bit skippy.

I can see that you’ve been busy lately and that your motivation led you to keep up with
the modern standards of the art industry. Some should try to wear your shoes to see how
it is to battle out your everyday challenges and obstacles. I enjoy your work and I like your
blog, some of your paintings are leading us directly through some narrow passages of the
everyday never ending joy and happiness. I would love to see more graphite pencil environments
from you, like you did on the first page of this sketchbook and similar to the one that you did
in the post #181. Simply taking more perspective basics in consideration, you could create
some even more magnificent rooms and interiors. You are not too intense with your updates
but your sketchbooks reflects a tranquil relaxed feeling, a mirror image of bliss. I wish you
many more creative drawing moments and a lots of satisfying and joy filled time.
Hey thanks LT.Plissken! That is such a great gift you have! I've had to find answers in different places for
a while. I'm getting confident in my work and think I am finding my real voice. I still love drawing int. and ext.
I found this great book on architecture fundamentals that I'm still studying.I try posting when I can but gave myself
a pretty hectic schedule.I'm glad to say most of it is drawing related!
Aqualeot:Thank you! that is what I am aiming for mostly so I don't mind at all!
I'll post some little drawings from the never ending pile of silliness today!

Hehe another Flying Dutchman! Good to see one here on CA. Thank you for taking an interest in my SB. Thought I'd check you out too and man am I glad I did. You've got a cool style. It's funny too. Where would you like this all to go? Are you aiming to make strips or illustrations or something?
Thanks! Yeah nice to see another dutchman! just anything would be nice by now.. I feel like I lived too many lives. As long is its a bit more stable then my previous situation it's all good.I still suck in promoting and marketing all that. But yeah I'm writing some stuff I want to use for strips. Also have interest in children books and editorial illustration.

Yeah, I think your work is suitable for all those things. It's quite charming. : -)
Are you self-taught? I'm going to study illustration and they are going to teach us how to do some of the marketing stuff, but even then it seems hard to get things going. Must be even harder when you have no one to ask for advice. You'll have to make a site or something and build a great portfolio and pimp yourself out like you've never done before. It doesn't matter if you're good but no one knows you're out there to hire. Guess you'll just have to make the jump.
EDIT (what?! CA won't let me say "wh0re myself" out?)
You've got some really interesting concepts, and a particular style to everything I've seen here. My favorite is the Pirate Worm in the Apple Ship. Made me smile. The walk cycles on the last page are alright, though you need to watch your line consistency and tracebacks, because they wiggle a bit too much. Try to work first in rough shapes, keeping things consistent, and THEN go back and add the appealing final lines. It will hold things together a little more securely. I myself struggle with the same thing, as I think many 2D animators do. It's a tricky business!
