    Hey man,

    That's a lotta lines on the SP. I like the sense of flow and form, very solid and energetic.

    Those marker sketches are pretty cool. You've generated a nice smooth sense of form. What kind of markers?

    I think the last one in the series (the frogs-eyes guy) is the best. The one just above it is kinda cool, too, but the tentacles need more bulk...It'd be worth a re-do, taking that sketch as a thumbnail.

    Keep it up, and thanks for your encouragement on my SB.

    PS Ha-ha, page two dance!

    I like the guy with the blob of skulls on his head. You've got some really cool stuff in your SB. I love the ink observational studies

    Great figure studies, looking good!

    you could crack up the contrast a bit (or darken them a bit even), so they are a bit more clear, next to that, great work!

    Hello there. You've an interesting drawing technique. Though If I were you I'd spend more time on improving linework and/or shapes. Seems like you're a bit too keen to make a lot of shadows. I'd recommend to try and practice more linework like in this one for example. You're really good at shadows and light and I think you'd better practice on other things.

    Looking forward to see more.

    I really like the skeletor-dude. He's a bit flat in that the forms don't quite 'turn', but the rendering and confidence of it are impressive.

    Life drawing looks good, the last one especially. How a bout posting the times of the poses? (next time ).

    Keep rolling, this is a huge load of work!

    Greip Thanks man. I'm not really working on any one thing at a time. I still think my rendering is not very organized but there are other things i want to improve as well, including the things you mention.

    BludHund Thanks buddy. When i went back and did the math, i decided the long pose must have been between 2 1/2 and 3 hours (It looks better in real life, but not by much) the others were between 5 and 30 min. Sorry i cant be more specific ill try to be better about recording this stuff.

    Here's some stuff from the November Atomic Sketch Event. That's a live sketching event I've participated in a couple of times.











    My marker quit while i was drawing the robot.

    Hey man!

    Life drawings are doing you tons of good, they look really nice. Seem to have an interesting mind as well, I really like the recent doodle of the skeleton dude. I agree you could push the form more, but I would suggest practicing lines a lot before you get totally lost in rendering. The ability to accurately describe something with just lines is invaluable. Something i'm also trying to remember and practice.

    Keep it up!

    Other than that ear i thought this first one came out ok. No ref used except for the last one which is based on an illustration of a similar guy sitting down (the client wanted him standing with his arms spread.)

    Cool stuff.

    Try pushing your value contrasts a little more in your sketches.

    Have you tried working with a black Prismacolor? I'm addicted to them now,
    although they are almost a buck a piece, even from Blick.

    Wowee, fun stuff! Really nice studies from life, they've helped breathe a lot life into your imaginative works. Good pencil renderings and i like the way you handle ink, on top of that your creatures are really cool. i especially like this latest d&d-esque post.

    No crits, you're onto something good, keep it up!!

    Nice stuff here, keep up with that cool imagination of yours. Try to do figure outlines with longer lines, rather than 4 lines for a leg I mean.
    Also, great creatures.
