    More to come very soon. I want to keep this sketchbook clean of my laziness so I'm reworking a few posts no worries as there will be a substantial amount of solid work in here.

    Great start!
    Maybe you could resize the pictures in the first thread, cause I can't really see anything like this :3
    Looking forward to see more!

    I have to get some different pencils and some different media and I need to cultivate some focus.

    So far this has been some stuff I have had time to do at work. That should change IMO. not enough privacy and too much distraction.

    I'm going to pick up some different pencils and some pastels this evening. I do not draw a lot so the above takes some time. I really want to get a lot faster and hopefully I will have some things in here that are as substantial as the ball container study or better. As you can see I did a lesser sketch and then I did a longer study. I don't like posting without putting something here... I had done a short study of a picture of Samuel L Jackson as Mr. Arnold from Jurassic park but it's going to have to be in the next post. Thanks for looking and I hope all is well in your world.

    Very nice stuff. I like the jar, and your human-doodles, they're looking nice and life like.

    My sketchbook. I'm always looking for critique, so please stop by

    I'm going to try to do an intensive study of Anatomy starting with skulls and skull reference.

    And so the following is in graphite and tonight the larger , and hopefully more correct, skull will be worked on in charcoal and chalk.

    I was hoping to use some chalk and make this much fuller and more detailed but the detail just gets lost so easily in the charcoal and I should have darkened the background or started with darker paper.

    If anyone has any tips or links on working with charcoal I'd love to get them.

    Thanks for looking.

    I've deliberately gotten rid of a lot of what I recently had in this sketch book so that I can keep things in here that encourage myself to work on the right things.
