    Focused Daily

    I need to overcome my fears of showing this stuff, so here i am making a sketchbook here on CA I've been lurking around here for some time now, and as i am now finally forcing myself to tackle my worst demons, i feel that i should confront my worst, and by that i mean, putting it out there to get crits and any advice that can help...no man is an island

    this first post will just have the little thumbnail thingy, and then i will post my current sketchbook, up too now as well as any digital study stuff i have.


    Thanks in advance for stopping by and taking your time to look through this crap pile as i struggle to become a decent artist

    Wow, really top notch still life's. I've got to get in the habit of doing those. It's interesting; I think your painting skills really trump your pencil sketches, at least thus far, which isn't typically what you find. It's usually the other way around. I think that's pretty cool. You've got a natural talent for being an awesome painter, congratulations!

    Awesome stuff to look at. I'll be checking this one often.

    thanks lunarsis, i think you are right on with that, i've always seen pencils as a means to get ideas out, never to fully form them so my rendering skills...even my doodling skills have fallen far behind, i hope to remedy that someday


    far from a productive day

    so, a still life speedy in photoshop, and some doodles in ink and pencil from imagination (bad idea.....bad bad idea : / ) and finally something i've never done before, a drawing from life of absolutely nothing...just whatever was around me. I have to admit, though im ashamed...it was far more difficult than i imagined.

    anyhow, as always c&c always appreciated

    EDIT THE EDIT FFS. still not showing flicks...maybe im slow but the attachment manager seems to be wonky atm

    This is really great stuff. I got into art through graffiti back in middle school. I dig!

    thanks for the kind words jonathan

    i've spent far too long doing graffiti, i should have moved on years ago. It was easier to quit smoking than it is to stop scribbling my name.

    anyhow trying yet again to upload pics, its been a bit now maybe it will let me now.

    hopefully the images show and i wont have to delete this post :3

    decided to test my bravery yesterday and stepped up to sketching in ink and marker instead of pencil

    i think it turned out for the best though i may be wrong

    overall some hits, some misses, some imagination, some study etc etc etc.
    NOW its time to draw, until tomorrow
