    haha, no your brain's working normally (at least in ur standards, lol) I was just experimenting with stuff for the avatars and decided to try Ridley out with some colour. It sort of inspired me to try colouring the full sized version, been meaning to colour it for a while actually, but it may happen soon!

    great start to a sketchbook - you've got a bit of variety here and there and some decent imaginative works. I'd recommend a few more pencils in here if you get the chance, as they'll help your paintings improve too. Other than that, just keep on working with those 3 p's. Good luck

    Hi Rob,

    Very nice sketchbook. I think your strengths are your drawing skills and your professionalism. All your images are very finished looking, cleaned up, and well presented. Your silhouettes are very nice, particularly that page with the Marianas trench creature sketches. I think you mostly need to work on your lighting but also your surface, painterliness I guess you could call it.

    You tend to use a generic sort of lighting where the forms just get darker toward the edges. Quite often you have no core or reflected light so it doesn't really convey the form. You also have a tendency to let the details overwhelm the larger form. Look at your finished Marianas trench creature: that is just, Wow! Awesome! Very cool creature design aside, the lighting is really excellent. But then the image directly below it (the one above too) . . . there's just no comparing them. Some really solid studies from life should fix this, just being aware of it at all times should help too. Observe different natural lighting conditions, times of day, etc.

    I think most of my problem with your surface is just a lighting problem. To me, everything's too clear-cut and smooth and tends to look like plastic. There's no natural variation to make things believable. Loosen up and let things blend together a bit. Color also has a lot to do with this. Sorry I can't be more helpful. You can see this difference between Larry Elmore's worse stuff and his better stuff, where he gets more like Jeff Easley. It may stem from your inclination toward drawing, painting is all about edges and transitions, not line. You know, try doing some speedpaints from photos or life if possible. Don't start with a line drawing, just start blocking in value and color shapes.

    Sorry this got a little rambly. I hope some of it helps. Cheers!

    ThomasM: Thnx man, I actually have done quite a bit of pencil sketching lately, but not too much time to get them scanned and sorted out, but they will be posted once that is done.

    Grey_Rift: Thnx, I'd to see more as well I'm too fixated on creatures atm XD

    Mr. Corlan: Many, many,many, many thnx dude! Don't apologize, the more the better I'm here to learn and it's great that someone as skilled as you were willing to stop by and give some feedback!

    SMILEFACE: Your welcome!!! ^^ You yourself are a great inspiration, just look at all the artists that are willing to contribute to your game, too think it all started with a few character thumbnails....AWESOME JOB JOB DUDE U RRRRROOOOOOOOCCKCKKCCCCKKKkKK!!!!! XDD

    logistic puppet: thnx, was planning to paint them eventually, then again there are lots of things I want to do, but haven't gotten around to it yet....

    SILHOUETTE ATTACK!!!!!!

    yes! that's right! I just did that! I just gave you a sucker punch of a giant file of black and white silhouettes....some of these are just really scribbly while some others I may have spent over an hour on...started these actually around January and sort of forgot about them, but here they be!!

    here are some more silhouettes I've done recently for COW, plus some scribbly silhouettes, and silhos for an IDW that I never got the chance to finish, also a very quick and sloppy landscape that I decided to try, only took me about a half-hour to do it...and finally my latest prgress on this week's COW

    here you see a quick sketch of an elven warrior, the idea came to mind, and I may actually at a later date, create a piece like this, but with a different creature design most likely...

    Thank you for taking the time to help me

    Your advise and tips are always spot on! Thats why my lines where so messy because i tried to use them as guide lines, but i tried to simplify that technique to simple guide lines I guess i went to far to the one extreme from the other,
    you explained it far better and let me understand whats going on! THANKS MAN

    here is the cheetah pic in case you wanna work a study of it its quiet challenging i will re do it myself again when time presents itself got nights shift work on weekends ruins my community activity time
