    Ardescore,

    firstly, thanks for your interest in my work. To be honest of all the sketches I've ever done, this ranks as one of the ones Im most pleased with, and I know I'll ruin it if I adopt my typical colorisation/mouse-painting techniques that you can see higher up the page. I might give it a shot, but I've definitely made it too fiddly for direct mouse painting. I'd have to resort to 'tricks' with the selection tools, adjustment layers and blending modes, and I sometimes get scornful reactions on here when I do that.

    As for digital rendering, I'd love to see it done, but I'm not the person to do it (yet). Maybe its something I should attempt to learn, do you know of any good open source programs that would help with this?

    only thing I can really recommend is diligence. Study, study, study, and remain focused. But it looks like you got that covered. I would really reccomend some repetition in your studies as I think it would help solidify some forms. Other then that, just keep drawing. Cheers.

    Thanks, MF. I'm actually not very focused at all, I have to skip between web development, parenting, graphic design and developing my drawing skills. You might guess which gets the least priority.
    I've taken some inspiration from your sketchbook, your advice must be good, because you are obviously doing something right. I love your linework, and your studies are impressive.

    Some prep sketches for the current DSG, which is to create a demon with overtly vertical features.

    Haha, it totally looks like him too! Really like your creature designs. What kind of an angry welder are you? MIG? TIG?

    actually I should change the title to "less angry web developer", I quit welding for good about eighteen months ago. I did MIG mainly, building aerial scissor lifts, but my heart was never in it, I freelanced as a graphic designer on the side for years, and eventually decided to make the switch.

    Hi Exiled,

    I don't know of any open source softwares but lots of people on here probably would! But yeah, practice more. You get better every time

    So I finally settled on an idea I liked



    I'm not sure if my mouse-paint job spoiled it or improved it

    My company is working on a furniture eCommerce site which is almost complete. The client has given me permission to post the logo I designed.

    here is my six year old sons entry to the lion-like trooper bot DSG. I was so impressed by it that I had to paint it, were quite pleased with the result.

    Last DSG was meant to focus on the meat in an alien butcher shop, I started out with this but I enjoyed the cartoon focusing on the butcher more, and submitted that instead.

    Your illustrations have a wonderful sense of humor and I especially like your zombie drawings. One thing I would suggest is keep on studying the human anatomy, especially the facial anatomy. Once you know it by heart, you can distort, twist and transform as you please.

    Hey mike,

    Thanks for stopping by! I'm trying to get as much life drawing in as I can, when and where I can. These are 30 second sketches from posemaniacs. I'm enjoying doing these for about ten minutes a day.

    Thanks Lav, I got a good response from that cartoon, I'm almost wishing I'd spent a little more time on it, I definitely want to develop the alien some more.

    anyway, this is my first and second concept for the owl/grub hybrid DSG



    I didnt like that so I went with this one.

    I tried to draw my son, and while I think I got the eyes, it really doesnt look like him, in fact the image looks a bit creepy. I'm still really struggling with likenesses, I can usually create a realistic face, it just very rarely looks like the subject.
