in2eternity - Thank you! I agree; I tend to avoid color because it's one of my weaknesses, which is exactly why I should focus on it more. Thank you for the helpful feedback!
This is as far as I got with my Sawsbuck COW pokemon redesign. I don't really care for the design anymore, but I figure I should continue with it for the practice (since I have little experience with either animals or plants).
Here are some antler thumbs I did for the Sawsbuck design that I forgot to post before.
These are compositional thumbs for a Terra fanart piece I was thinking of doing. I really wanted to have her riding the Magitek armor suit but still have the character visible, so I was trying out various vintage pin-up poses. 17 and 24 are my faves I think.
And these are thumbs for a Godzilla t-shirt design I was toying around with.
Zweit - Thanks dude! Haven't seen you in ages! You should update your SB or let me know if you're more active somewhere else; I've love to see what you've been up to
Here are some random sketches I've been hoarding. I've been thinking about horses and trying to find a construction method that works for me. I find their heads particularly confusing because I don't have a guideline for the proportions.
And these are from life. First image is a pigeon and a guy in the park, and the second is a bird I drew at a natural history museum (black and white charcoal on watercolor paper toned with a black acrylic wash).

Wow it's been a while since I've been here, such an improvement! And I have to echo the others in saying that is one fluffy sheep, really great texture work, shame I can't make use of the brushes you linked as I use manga studio and not ps
Last night I went to a Dr. Sketchy's figure drawing event and finally got to try live figure drawing with a laptop and tablet. It turns out to not be anywhere near as awesome as I thought it would be. It's actually really awkward because your arm motion is limited and you can't move around the room to find a good spot. But it really pushed me to draw faster and was in general really fun.
Iíve been having trouble with artistís block for a while now. I sometimes get burned out from drawing, but I always come back to it pretty naturally within a few months. This time itís different because I discovered programming during my dry spell, and now I have to try to find time to think about drawing. Itís weird.
Anyway, I was going through my folders trying to free up space on my laptop and found a bunch of stuff I never posted.
Hereís a mouth study; I was mostly playing around with random brushes.
