Hello my name is Paul and this is my sketchbook =).
I've just recently have been motived to develop my visual expression a bit more courtesy of a great friend. I learned to draw mostly by looking at fantasy/sci-fi paintings/illustrations and comic books. In particular my favorite illustrators from those areas are - Yoshitaka Amano, Brom, RK Post, Tim Sale, Alex Ross, and numerous others.
Only recently have I really starting doing a lot of reference and life drawing. I've always felt I had some serious drawbacks in my foundations and really wanted to push myself to be better.
I'll try to put up a mix of ref, no ref, monochrome, and colors. Comments, critiques, and general feedback/questions are very welcome.
Just to note I draw almost exclusively in Open Canvas 4 and occasionally use Photoshop. My background with traditional media is mech pencils, pens, ink, soft pastels, and some acrylic/watercolors.
-Refs I use are posemaniacs, google, wiki commons, films, and photography.
Edit 1 - got rid of random sketches to focus more on study progression.
Edit 2 - Some additional info.
