I've been lurking for a while, but I figure it's about time I started my own sketchbook here.
I'm entering Junior year in Illustration at university and am trying to kick it into high gear with art. So any honest/harsh criticism is welcome.
Thanks for visiting!

Most recent painting and some stuff from school last semester.
Here are some sketches from the most recent figure drawing session I went to. All short pose, around 5-15 minutes.
Very nice studies and I love the first and second painting, keep it up!
pixel cheetah: thanks!
A couple studies.
Long time no update! Anyway, I want to get back on track with updating regularly, so hopefully this will be the start of that. I'll just post a few of the "highlights" from the past few months. As usual, honest feedback and criticism is always welcome
A portrait inspired by Clochette's style and some life drawings for today.
Cheerio, you've got some awesome stuff going on here so far! The paintings are great, intriguing, and I love the variety of styles you are comfortable with. The lifedrawings are beautiful, too - very nice values! The painting with the chocolates and gummy worms made me go "eww!" for a second, because I almost thought they were actual worms! Then I realized they were gummy worms. lol!
I think a lot of these pieces have tons of character, expression, and mood. Which is critical for an illustrator. Keep it up!
As for criticism, one thing I noticed is that the anatomy on the little farmer boy seems a little weak...also, he doesn't look like he's actually on the ground. But, the mood of the piece as a whole is great. I love all the buffalo looking at him!
RedOwl: thanks for the encouraging words and thoughtful criticism! I agree with your feedback and will keep it in mind for future work.
Thought I would post some of the stuff I do at my "day job." I make illustrations for independent study courses for high school and college students. These are a few recent ones from a course on European history.
