The albino-Z Sketchbook
I am practically new in here, but I am very glad to have joined.
To start off, here is my entry for the latest EOW round. I am not sure it is finished yet, but time is running out anyway:
The temple of El lies in the heart of the Opaline Desert. Legends wrought in the vast seas of sand speak of El, a mythical dream sorcerer of the drach, that slept for three full moons, shaping dream-matter into a temple of glorious beauty. It was upon the first look that El's heart was captivated by the untold grace and awe of his own masterpiece. He cried and cried till every tear of joy had left his body, turning himself into a living statue. Now that the war shrieks of the drach sorcerers are but an echo in time, the temple of El is still slowly disintegrating, creating the vast plains of iridescent sand that surround it; a symbol of the relentless power of dreams.

Vitra: thank you so much for the encouraging words!
Oh, and here is a WIP for the latest COW: ROUND#229, Bouncy, Amphibious Rain-Dancer.
The idea is that of a tiny tiny critter climbing to the heights of the stratosphere, stepping on rain drops
Critiques are most welcome.

Stunning intro to your sketchbook, you have a unique style oozing with personal revelation. These characters are strong; they remind me of guardian angel terrestrials, creatures or men you'd encounter in a secret level of Mortal Kombat or under the subway station of some futuristic metropolis. Nice book!

Concept: The Caretaker
He -the most humble of gods- born in mud, chained in mud, forever humming the faint tune of creation.

Hay there, albino; Just wanted to stop by and say that you're one of my greatest inspirations to work from the imagination, and properly put it into a plane in which people can visually appreciate and understand. Not only because you are skilled, but you seem to hold an imagination similar to my own. (digitally, anyways) keep up the amazing work. I hope to see tons more in the future.

Whoa . . . . . . . .
Awesome work! I kept scrolling down waiting for something that wasn't so hot, but every single post blew me away! I think you like to draw the same sort of shapes that I do: wings, triangles, tendril-y things, etc. You are definitely inspiring! My sketchbook should look like this.
I'm curious, do you do preliminary sketches and whatnot for these or do you just start with one image and work it from rough to finish? Thanks!

Def got some great stuff in here man. Love that Guerilla nest EOW and you've come up with some very interesting COW's. I actually haven't noticed that your fairly new to the site, mainly because your work is just so awesome! It's really cool how you incorporate a coloured blur to your work, it adds that much more and gives it a neat almost photographic effect. Keep it up man!!
