This is going to be my sketchbook I feel like a total noob for not doing this sooner as I want to get better at drawing...painting...both...maybe everything. So I'm starting out small with spheres, cubes, and so on, and building up. I will post something everyday. Please evaluate my progress along the way so that we will learn together, thank you.
First post is two spheres for study, I wanted that painterly feel to my image and I want that for all of my images.

I have neglacted this thing for almost a year and now I'm back at concept art. This isn't going to be a regular sketchbook. I will be posting progress shots of what i do digitally so that me and others looking at this will learn something.This is the under painting for a still life im doing, i will post more when i get to a stopping point.
A new painting showing some of what I do to get to a good point in it.
I drawing in pencil and charcoal, I have been trying to learn the classical methods of drawing on my own. I start with a basic block in of the big shapes using angles, then I block in shadow masses that i see.
Next is to add color, sometimes people get fooled into thinking that there maybe only a few little colors but I try to look carefully.
I've been taking some stills of movies I like and painting them I have a lot stills so it should be a lot of practice. The first is an unsuccessful attempt at the Red Skull from the First Avenger movie. Next up is Captain America himself. I'm going to focus on speed this time.
