    Great sketchbook!
    Watch out when you do colors tho, seems like you're too focused on the hue of the color rather than the value, values is what makes an image pop out, color is just the icing on the cake

    Wow, 5 pages already, growing fast! Not surprised though, this is surely one of the most interesting sketchbooks on CA. Colours still rockin' it. Don't stop.

    bogan - Thanks!
    rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks mate
    p sage - Thanks!!
    Verehin - I can explain you that one... well.. actually not
    Seage - Thanks I'm glad to read that
    John Silva - You are right, I'm lacking depth and volume, so thanks for pointing out I must really also work on that, which means go back doing some detailed studies, but I gotta disagree about color tho, imo its much more than just a complement, its the soul of the image!
    but yes sometimes I mistake color with Light, or forget about Light, and its about both
    Lav - Thanks
    Psychobuddy - Thanks!
    Hai - And I've learnt a lot from the feedback, its been very enriching so far!

    Now a couple udpates

    I saw every page of your sketchbook and it is really great. I like your style. Especially color and figure drawing. It seems you spend much time on these elements.
    Keep posting.

    Hi again,

    Man the last coupla pages have some amazing images...yer werk is so imaginative!

    LOVIN' the girlie "arm chop" thang...although that may make us both clinically INSANE.

    The girl in the tub is schweet...and the zombie girl portrait...as well as the skeletons having a little meal outa the all seeing eye!

    Cool schtuffezes!

    Hey f1x

    You have a good understanding of form - in the figures and the creatures lying on the ground vanquished etc. will be really cool to see you mature in your skills and style.
    What I admire is the constant churning and fleshing out of ideas. This in itself will take you far. Keep it fresh and growing. All the foundation work you do in studying the anatomy of humans and animals, landscapes and understanding of color within a value design will add more power to your images. Rock on!

    your work is very reminiscent of erik jones' work... and i like it haha. one bit of critique tho, you shud start getting familiar with some male anatomy. it would take your work to the next level. but man the colors you use in your sketches are so unexpected (in a good way)

    AztcFireFlower Thanks a lot, indeed always reinforce the basics! lets hope I can get some more time to do new stuff
    dU5K Thanks, Erik Jones, thats a huge compliment, he is amazing and a reference for me
    About male anathomy, actually I used to do a lot of male "nature" studies, cant recall how to call that in english, with a model and such back in the days when I was still going to university, definitely should try to bring some male characthers designs, if I find the will to do it ... cause you know.. boobs...
    DANKA Thanks a lot!
    Dark_Eyes Nice!!! thanks!! very appreciated =)

    Lately I've been very busy with work (I work as graphic designer for textile companies) so havent got time to do any personal or concept art stuff
    only this littel drawing, planning to add a bit of color later on

    nice stuff in here. really like the quick paintings in PS.
    Also like how you use color and lines to build the images, works great. who needs value anyway

    TFsean - Thanks a lot, !
    Bakker - alo, I guess tho value is still something I gotta work on
    about liquids, I wont go too phylosophic, but the ones with that dripping thing were part of a series, the liquids are quite about concepts which are unstable, ever changing or simply confusing, realities without a form (hence the "liquidicy"
    NickyBeats - Thanks!
    Lav -
    xinranliu - thanks sir

    Now checking again, I'm not too happy with the sketches, so Instead I will show you some of the stuff I do as graphic designer for textile:

    I've been working on some sketches based on Game of Thrones screencaps
    Really want to get into drawing more realistic armors (and I took the chance to study faces also)
