Wow , amazing black and white works !
Are those paitings, charcoal, digital ?
They look like charcoal to me. Wow, that first one is fantastic. It's really in your face emotionally. All your drawings are very expressive.
As far as improvements go, I think the smoky-softness works for these generally, but there are places where you could really push the detail, like in the hanging man one. To me, that one screams for more attention.
These are really great so far.
Very moody and atmospheric work. I love it. Makes me think of silent hill. Way to make a first impression!! lol... Keep em comin!
nice atmosphere and a good start - I especially like the landscape ~ the people are good too, just feel a bit too direct to get the same effect.
anyway keep them coming ~

Wow - such feelings in your work...Off to a rocking start in your sketchbook.
Thank You rocking much!
Very atmospheric, there's something especially eerie about the last one..
Also your blending looks good, I'm guessing you use some sort of napkin or cotton?
medicagotruncatula - Thank You!
And yes, I do use cloth napkins for blending.
The charcoal stuff is lookin' amazing! Vine? Soft, Medium and Hard charcoal? I don't think I see compressed here.
Cloth napkin eh? I thought something like that would be a bit abrasive to use for charcoal since it comes off to the touch. What kind of cloth?
Doctors heal you, Artists immortalize you.
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.
