I'm such a loser for not making a sketchbook yet, lets fix this. A few things from recent sketchbooks:
This one wasn't horribly sketchish, but hey, it was fun!
Again, not a sketch, but fun to do
More to come as I get spare time. Maybe I'll do some actual studies soon....

I love these sketches, the one with the warrior and the rock like monster seems to really stand out to me- really fluid and dynamic!
Don't feel like a loser, I can never regularly update my sketchbook it seems!

I like that one too, but it bugs me that they're planted so firmly on the ground, the guy should be moving more... but hey, maybe next time
Yeah, I usually forget about these things, which is why I kept putting it off.... but I figure some feedback and having a reason to sketch more would at least a lil beneficial for once. Not like it'll hurt to try!

Okay, looks like I have a moment to plop up some more...
One I keep meaning to turn into an actual picture but I never get the time, oh well. I've got a few different sketches on this subject, but I like this one the most so far...
The right most figure became an oil piece a lil while back, may post that up if I can ever get a good photo of it.

Boring dragon? Check
A lil sci-fi crash landing scene that I greatly enjoy but will likely never get to
And a no prize to which ever lovely person knows what Lovecraftian horror this was a study of...
I think tonight I'll probably do some studies, haven't done any real anatomy focus work in a lil while.

Having a crappy day, figured I may as well dump some work in here. I always feel like I should drop sketches in here, but all in all, a collection is more of what a sketchbook is, from unrefined to fairly.... so I'll go with it.
Work from awhile ago that I never really put anywhere... why not here? An oil piece for a CCG. I seriously need to get better at my oil painting...
Recent piece for a pulp horror game
My band's album cover - in progress. Sorry for the white edges, I just extended the canvas out for some breathing room on the left side, it was too cramped! If there's any crits for this piece, I sure won't turn em down
Working on my penguin revolution series.... this time it will be penguins versus zombies. Will you be ready for the zombie apocalypse? They are.
Recent book cover thang. Not one of my favorites, didn't have the sort of playing room I prefer, but it worked well enough - I can't complain too much.

hey dude nice your from Washington too!
The band picture, I think you should push the values more, the background and the creature are close to the same values, try and make your darks darker and the lights lighter. Though now that I look at it the light sources don't match very well with the shadows. But not everything needs to be followed that way. The boy (girl maybe? lol) not very clear where he plays in to the whole point of the image, he kinda fade off, If hes meant to be looked at then I would make him pop me, maybe make him bigger or something. Hope this helps in some way! surprised only 1 other person commented!

Always loved your confident sketchings. Every time I see them it makes me want to draw on paper again... ... . So I will .
Keep updating with all you've got, if you've got time.
Lookin' good man.
AND you should totally render out the cockpit scene from the first post.

Thank you for the kind words.... graphite was always the thing I felt more comfortable doing... after a bad day, it was always pencils that I found got it all out of my system.
Can't do any updates yet, but hopefully soon - major deadlines are sorta destroying what I can show publicly... NDA's suck sometimes heh. And no spare time means no real sketches to share.
And yeah, I wanna do that cockpit one bad haha. It just looks like fun!

Great work those pencil sketches are very detailed, dynamic and very fluid. Inspirational stuff. Thanks for the treat.

cmalidore, thanks for posting all the sweet drawings! your pencil sketches as most have said show a great deal of confidence, and they really shine. your finished pieces, while really good, dont have the same effect. every pencil piece has excellent composition. you really make great use of the space. they just FEEL right. your finished pieces on the other hand feel just a little imbalanced. if you could use your sketchbook composition skills in your finished pieces, you'd be unstoppable!
