    Thanks NicponimskY!

    @Waschbär - You need to update your sketchbook there buddy. Thanks. Eh, bugger, I guess I should really go back and fix those up. Haha, you so lightly say it needs more contrast! This is oil paint, that basically involves repainting the whole thing!

    Here's a few more things. A sketch for the latest CoW (frilled sand-surfer) in ballpoint pen and watercolor pencil, some Thark head concepts, and a sphere I did last week but forgot to post.

    @Nkristian - Thanks. Uh what? I'm pretty sure I did it right, I did it from observation. See the attached image. Maybe it's because my white ground plane wasn't very big so it didn't reflect light higher up on the sphere.

    @Velocity Kendall - Nice, thanks. Wow those buildings look just like my painting. Wait, Bekzinski? Zdzislaw Bekzinski? I don't really see how that 4 in the sky is like him.

    @insane lemur - Hey thanks! Hah, yeah, it's a pain in the butt. My studio is really tiny and I used just about all of it doing the perspective on those. For all those darn windows I drew them all with white charcoal and then just filled in with paint.

    Here's what started out as a sketch for the next ChoW but turned into a proportion study (and yeah I know the head's way off). And my "finished" CoW entry, which is kinda iffy, but I just jumped onto my first sketch and didn't spend a whole lot of time on it, so it serves me right. But I definitely learned stuff from it, next time will be better.

    Awesome as ever, man! Love the deep grey atmosphere you create in a lot of the paintings and then oppose that with bright cores. Looking forward to more.

    Nice Ross! Aren't Tharks a bitch? Either have to make them look cool or make them look dorky like Edgar describes...good luck on the Cow entry!

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Hi matey

    I have looked at this sketchbook quite a lot, and I have come to the conclusion that you must have a lot of nightmares because theres a heck of a lot of monsters in here. Ha ha ha your mind is a scary place man!!

    Good work though keep posting.

    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    @The Flying Dutchman - Thanks again! I'll try to keep it up.

    @ Vulgar' - Thanks a lot! I really should've spent more time on it, but it was kinda neat to bang that out in part of a day. We'll see how it does in the poll, I don't think there were very many entries this round.

    @JeffX99 - Thanks Jeff. Yeah, they sure are! Especially those ears, he describes them like they're straight out of Shrek. I tried to find as many other people's renditions as I could online, but a lot of people just make them look like weird orcs.

    @Lightship69 - Hey thanks for stopping by my sketchbook Lightship! Haha! No, I don't have nightmares. It's a bit weird, I've never liked horror stuff at all but it seems like my stuff tends to go in that direction, and yeah, I like drawing creatures—I can do whatever I want with them. Haha, I've found myself quoting your signature sometimes, "easy now, go easy!" Thanks. Mate.

    Here's my latest progress on the next ChoW, I've really got to get cracking on it. (there's some reference photos pasted in there for now.)

    Cool last pic. I'm not too sure what ChoW it is this time, but I'm getting the impression the woman's mechanical. If so, that crease down her cheek (looks like a crease at the moment anyway) could be a tiny bit darker, as it'd be a great symbolizer of her face-plates to really get the idea across. Also digging the cables hooked up to her abdomen.

    Very nice stuff. Your posts have inspired me to learn anatomy more thoroughly, including the names for things. (Before I didn't see the point of learning the names, but now I see how that could be useful: to actually be able to refer to specific parts that might be wrong, and to help remember what's there by muscle groupings and so on.)

    Anyway, on with the crit: there's something about the girl's head in relation to the body that doesn't read well for me. Maybe it's just because the body isn't complete yet, but it looks a bit small or something. Skinny/bony (especially when compared to the neck and head, which don't look frail). I'm guessing as you render it more, it'll get fleshed out, but I figured I'd mention.

    Whoa! Where did all these comments come from? Thanks everybody!

    @Velocity Kendall - Ah, yeah, I agree. Thanks! Sorry for being so dumb.

    @surus - Thanks! Yeeeaaahh . . . . I totally failed on that ChoW.

    @Mhugo - Thank you very much. Yeah, I need to study anatomy more.

    @Gloombunny - Hey, no problem. Thanks.

    @BlightedArt - Thanks. Yeah, good point. That's what I was going for. If I had actually finished that one I would have done something about that.

    @Lulie - Thanks a lot. Excellent. Hah, every time I think I know something about anatomy I start drawing and realize that I have no idea what something's supposed to look like. You are spot on about the head. I realized it was too small when I really started drawing it out, for some reason it looked weird to me if it was bigger. Thanks.

    @obier - Uh oh, I guess that means I have to post stuff eh? Thanks.

    @n1frit - Thanks!

    OK, here's a few little things. The latest ChoW (definitely unfinished as usual) and all the sketches for that, and some construction drawings; it's pretty depressing how bad I am at those.

    @nim - Hey thanks! Thanks for mentioning Moebius too, I hadn't heard of him. No, I'm not attending anywhere right now. If you could give me a link to that other person though that would be cool, I'm curious to see theirs.

    @James Gerard - Thanks.

    @poetry man - Thanks, I'll try.

    Boy, I've got to post more stuff so there's not more comments than art in here. Here's a bunch of doodles and stuff for now. The last image was done in graphite on horrible paper made worse by the humidity and is very much contrast enhanced, hence the terrible quality.

    Some more doodles . . . graphite . . .

    Been looking at the old team ChoW stuff and it has inspired me to make my drawings better, or at least more finished.
    Gah. I should be better.

    Hey, your sketches caught my eye. They are beautiful and have character. My only advice is to spend more time rendering your paintings. They are a great start, keep at them, and they'll be pretty awesome. Introduce more of a variety of lights and shadows too.
