Hi all! Just joined up with this site after following it for quite a while and am excited to contribute and being a part of this community. I'll start off with posting a few sketches/studies I've done recently. Thanks for any crits/advice/simple comments I get from anyone!
Latest work at the end. You know this already!

Reason: Need a more up-to-date front picture
Thanks for dropping by my SB! Your stuff looks really good! As far as critiques goes.. Some of the figures in your last drawing by memory look stylized and less realistic. however, I really like the way that looks but in case you were trying to go for a realistic look I think certain things like the waist on the top right figure gets quite narrow and in the bottom middle figure there is what looks like a rather sharp edge on her leg. although It is hard to tell. I personally really like the way those figures look. They have their own unique character to them!
Jarrad - Thanks for the reply and stopping by my SB. I agree, the figures are quite rough so I think I make them "feel" right as much as possible by stylizing them, although I know that can only get me so far, which is why I study anatomy/figure drawings like a beast right now!
A Faux - Thanks to you as well for the reply and views. I actually threw around the idea of doing logo/mascot design. I used to be in a band and did all the artwork for it and thought about continuing that on a wider base.
These are a new "series" of sketches I'll start up in my online sketchbook titled "Work Sketches" in which, you've guessed it, I'll be posting sketches that I do while at work. I'm a server at a popular restaurant here in town and in order to keep the peace (and my job ) as much as possible, I'll be "censoring" any mention of the name on all of these sketches. A few of them are just random fun bits, others are the start of other ideas that I carried to completion ( doodle monkey and the gangster), and then there's the start of a technique that I came up with recently to help me "invent" poses from my imagination. I call it the "scribble technique" where I do just that: scribble in an allotted space on a page and then try and find a figure pose from that. It's been very interesting in helping me work out rather complicated poses and has shown much of my weaknesses for drawing the human figure in certain perspectives. I'll continue to post more of this exercise as I do them.
