Awww Right in the Sketchticles!!(its been done right?)
Hi im Mark, im 21 i live in Melbourne Australia and i have a shit job(and also work as a semi freelance graphic artist), this is my sketchbook dating from mid 2009 till now. The dream is to be a professional illustrator/Concept Artists/Storyboard artists etc etc.
UPDATE 2011: I quit my shit job in 2010, and started working as a freelance illustrator, I'm closer then ever to being where I want to be
This is me working towards that goal.

-I like all the studies you've been looking into. Apart from form and structure, some rhythm and force (feels) is another I keep trying to understand.
-The digitals look good - the apple especially (or I'm just hungry). This last face is scary as fark. Some shadow fixes like the nose shadow to his left eye could be added, still scary though.
-I'll bring some notes on the next meet. You and I are pretty much on the same page/course and direction, so that makes it easier.
It is the hours that we put in, and the need to understand everything that'll free us from the confines and bounds of Shit.
Shit comes in many forms, for example, my Shit tells me to hit the snooze button 9 more times, hawr hawr.
If there's anything in my sketchbook(s), blog that puzzles you, ask away. Cool bananas?
(A lot of it is still guess work and uncertainty - but this year will be to test those experiments and processes)
These are some character concepts for a comic me and a writer friend want to start,
i made a brush in photoshop that gives me some nice random shapes which i used to create this, i when i start the panels i wanted to have
the background painted but im still not good enough
at perspective to be happy with it,soon,soon.....
-Variation in the strokes are still one of my battles with pencils.
Line weights and all that bang.
-The brushes are a good experiment. Before you define the brush, you can add translucency for further randomnimity .
-I've still to come around to creating non-organic brushes.
For buildings and structures - lots of geometric shapes and hard lines.
I drew some bums 2 days ago but i though it might be boring to look at so here are some digital studies, damn colour is so hard to understand,(its the evil nazi from enemy at the gates if you cant figure it out)
colour study, i obviously still don't understand colour for crap, second is a value study about 20 mins on each thumbnail, last one was just messing around in photo shop don't ask what it is cause i dont know either.
