My safe zone.. pencils.
Trying to feel better after a bunch of SHIT oil paintings so this is me sortof taking on the task of creating some Dante's Inferno style demon concepts.
Too bad the gallery updates aren't working.. Would like to post them there.
Some digital stuff in the same vein. Slightly more angelic.
excellent, its all so good, "the entertainer" epicc. scary good start to a sketchbook
Great stuff. Check out Luness's sketchbook if you haven't seen it yet, rather similar style to yours.

I checked out Luness' stuff, very cool textures.
Monsters! I love the wood bark/old paper flesh.
Very good start to your sketchbook, better than how most people start off... I can't really find anything to complain about. Keep up the good work!
I've seen his work a few times but just found out about him. I love how this guy does skin tones.
Check him out! These are just pencil studies of his oil paintings.
love the pencils man!
At our sketch lunch we did some 10 minute studies. Kinda cool montage.

Telling his story on
I would suggest working with paints a little more, but the pencil drawings are great.
Decided to do some anatomy study for a rhino.. These are my notes and sketches from lunchtime drawing today.
I did the paint before the study so now I can see his ears hump is too far forward and his jaw isn't rounded enough.. The stripped leathern flesh is intentional but he looks a bit dog-like with these proportions..
Consider this a study as well
You have a nice style, I like both the pencils and the paintings. Keep it up!
You don't see rhinos from where you sit? odd.
nice complex work.
Your creatures are awesome! I really like the way you studied the rhinoceros before you worked on the rhino rider- I assume that is the same guy from #11? Just brilliant.
it's not the end that matters but the journey
Hey thanks for looking!
Drew up this little fella on my newish Ipad.
Used Artsudio (the best app - better than Sketchbook in many ways including brush response)
Dagi stylus (best stylus cause you can see where you are drawing - transparent tip)
Did these as a demo for creature concepting at the Art Institute.
Jumped into this little painting. Maybe an hour? Did it as a demo for my art institute class. I love clouds... clumpy..fluffy...gray...tan...white..clouds.
Fantastic! I'm really enjoying you coloring and shading. I'm not to great with animals, so I don't have any crits. Don't forget to keep posting!
Love the pencil work, but your digital stuff seems, I'm not sure of the word, a bit fuzzy? It might just be me though. And environmentals would indeed be nice.
Amateur Artist. Professional Asshole.
Lookit the Pretty!
Rule #1 of depicting soldiers: KEEP THE DAMN FINGER OFF THE DAMN TRIGGER.
Those first few pencils and digitals are amazing!!
You have a def grasp of both, stronger with pencil, but it seems like it's because you can define your edges more, the digitals are a little fuzzy, but your use of color and form are incredible, they could just use some sharpening, maybe study some rendering techniques
keep it up dude!
swing by my book sometime, maybe gimme some tips on those pencils!!
those pencil and digital artwork are awesome!!
those pencil ang digital artwork are awesome!!
You know what.. That is some great feedback.. The stuff about the digital paints being fuzzy. It's been a lingering suspicion that is now confirmed! Thanks all. I usually build from soft edge to crisp. I think the next step is to make a mark that expresses the edge instead of cleaning and noodling up fuzzy ones.
kekai kotaki does that well. I love his work. Using the right brush..
As for environments.. I AM scared. But I will face my fears. Still don't have the sense of scale right when I do them. Feels like a model train set instead of reality.. More soonish.
