Hey there traveler, you've wandered into my little sketchbook, I'm going to be throwing my little random sketchy doodles here hopefully daily but that might be a little optimistic. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your stay and feel free to leave a comment

my sketch of a half horse half headless hairy backed woman
Another little morning sketch, I know super cheesy, but at least this one has a head...
today's sketch from a pic I found on flickr...
A sad little mouse sat all alone in the dark...
A wee crappy WIPy that has motivated me to go right back to the beginning and really focus on the fundamentals of painting.

A selection of life drawing mostly done from the Drawn Brighton classes and events, If your ever in Brighton do check it out they're by far the best and most sociable classes I've ever been to http://www.draw-brighton.co.uk/
A few Artist Studies (don't have the artists names and piece titles to hand but will be sure to add them)
More of the same I guess...
Why you shouldn't fall asleep on a train in front of a man with a sketchbook and loaded pencil, especially when you have such interesting face fat.
Hey there! Your life drawings are really great. You have such a lovely use of line. It's really impressive. You've managed to keep the line looking quite tight whilst the drawing remains loose. Really impressive
My favourite is the third one from June 26th. What's that from? Life drawing or master study maybe?
Hey Gritto, thanks for the kind words. The image your asking about is from some photo reference. If your interested I'm fairly certain I could dig up the image from my archive.
Bit of painting for a change, nothing special just keepin my hand in
awesome stuff here in your sketchbook... crazy life drawings and my favourite is the guy with the glasses and the sword could be a guy from Samurai Champloo or Afro Samurai
I wanna see more of your life drawings and especially MORE cheesy stuff ^.^b
heya! rob! its you! awesome sketches! see you around!
I love your figures, especially your faces.
Though try to pay more attention to the proportions. Your limbs tend to get quite short and thin. What really helped me with that was doing bunch of quick little poses to really burn those proportions in my head so you can always eyeball it easily.
And your CHOW entry looks very promising, can't wait to see finished piece.
Just playing about with volume and mood, not really the direction I'm aiming for but was fun never the less.
Well between work and the flu I wasn't able to do get my CHOW-359 done anywhere near in time, but I'm gunna get it finished never the less. So here's my colour progress on it. Kind of stuck or just need to work out a few areas:
- The structure of the glider, at the moment it's just a walnut jammed into a ladybird shell, which isn't much of anything.
- Turn the Walnuts back into leaves... I have no idea why I thought a walnut glider was a good idea.
- Work out the patterning of the shirt, need to do some research and get a better grip of some patterning in general.
- Sort out that stupid sharp curl back at the end of the shirt
- FIX the sleeves, right now they don't have any kind of intelligible form as a part of the shirt. Think I'll try and go back to a wider open cuff closer to the original sketch.
- Work on the hands cos their just characterless poo at the moment.
- Then do... something on the face, not entirely sure what needs fixing kinda feel like it's the eyes.

Hey Rob, it's been a while! You're life drawing is really ace, love the colour studies in post #8 as well.
Those 5-10 min drawings are great, you managed to capture a lot of energy while keeping the drawing looking clean and not using many lines at all... and those lizard painting are amazing!
