thanks a lot fernteixeira, i was hoping to get better everyday..i've been visiting this site for almost two years, and i finally make up my mind posting, i'll add some more sketches in the future...of course crits are welcome...
Very nice shading and details. I know you've stated they were taken with a camera phone but I'd love to see higher rez scans.

thanks man!! I'll see what i can do zaccrockett, these are done almost a year ago, i'll upload them up whenever i find them...next time i'll be posting hi-res images...
Hey hi Markey,
the use of a ballpoint pen seems to allow you a lot of different line qualities/thicknesses. You are very aware of the "wheight" of your lines, and how the shading/hatching density balances the whole image. Nice work on contrast, especially in the cave one and the forest one.
I love that turtle/ray hybrid, very cool !
I like the last drawing very much as well, although I don't quite understand what's depicted; some kind of... giant mechanical bird ? That's what I see at least ! Reminds me of the great birdy villain in the animated movie "nine".
These are really, really nice work, and I'd like to see more... keep drawing !

hey great stuff!
really fantastic sketches especially
you have a sorta john howe thing going on with your lines which i love,
really subtle and confident.
you might actually want to invest in a tablet though,
your digital lines lack the fluidity and dynamics of your pencils which may just be an experience thing, but tablets allow for pressure sensitive lines allowing you to get varying line widths like a pencil or brush, something your trusty mouse cant do..an alternative would be to scan your lines in and color over them (what i usually do, just because i prefer drawing on paper)
small tablets can go for around 150-250 if you get them from a discount online wholesaler (in canada at least) and i've had my tiny 4x6 for 10 years and its served me fine (though i think i'm about due for an upgrade)
Keep posting though, I'd love to see more!
another sketch on photoshop cs...this was inspired by the game, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. i am still getting used to my mouse as my pointer...but hey..an artist needs to adapt sometimes, right?...another fruitful day..
But seriously, get a Wacom Bamboo or something!! Drawing with a mouse makes my brain hurt!
I have to say, if you can do that much with a mouse, a tablet will totally be worth your money. The level of detail you're doing here is incredible. I can't wait for more!
-thanks man..here in my country a tablet is costly...so until that day....lolz...yup snorks....im shoulda put a shotgun instead...an effective way of killing 'em...but for now an AKM- 74 will do...at least he got one of em.....thanks again..
-thanks...yes, i'm starting to save some money for a tablet...for now im getting myself used to digital sketch...'cause usually, i do mostly pencils on paper...i think i am beginning to like it..
This is the stuff i did yesterday, i was inspired to create an environment, and I included the photo of the sketch, i rarely color my drawings so im a bit worried on my choice of color...
Mmmm, it seens to be a very interesting sketchbook! Thank you for sharing)
been busy lately..
Update!...been obsessed with dragons lately...i'm thinking of coloring it this weekend....
