    Hey hi. You've got interestings anatomical block-ins, I love the spread hands on the left, they're driven by very dynamic curves. I'm looking forward to see the continuation of this last pic, also ; the only thing that bothers me a bit about it is the woman's right arm ; although it's evidently still in a very sketchy state, I'd prefer to point out that it seems weird - specifically, the elbow seems strangely oriented and the arm (not the forearm) looks too short. That said, given the obvious anatomical mastery you're showing, you have to be aware of these little things.
    The overall work on the light & shade is really nice.
    You know, I just began painting in b&w myself, and I really wonder how people get to achieve this kind of precision in their strokes. I guess practice will give me some answers over time. Let's see.

    And that smokin' skull is overly cool. Keep it up !
    Daily sketch !

    I think you've inspired me to get back to the basics.. simple 3D shapes, lighting, perspective. It's nice to see someone that's clearly already somewhat skilled being motivated to continue to work on those fundamental concepts. For that, I applaud you.
    The study of the underwater girl with the tea cup is great, and I see little to no flaws in any of your anatomy studies. An interesting start to a sketchbook, best of luck.

    WuHoly crap dude your studies look perfect! Awesome lines and sense of humor, thanks so much for the comment! I'm totally subscribing. Please put a link to your SB in your signature, I almost missed visiting and that would have been tragic
    Cool illustration, The big angler fish looks awesome and creepy. Not really liking the light grey fish at the top of the image, they seem kinda distracting. I guess it works if you look at the image as having a top and bottom part though. Can't wait to see where it goes!

    Awesome stuff! Even in your studies there is a certain flow to recognize.

    Mawh- Thanks a bunch! And I'll tell my buddy, the fish girl pic I'm actually collabing with a dear friend of mine Chimmy and it's his turn to do whatever he wishes to it. Yeah haha I do that thing sometimes where I obsess over little details rather then the underlying base of the images anatomy, form, lighting is what matters more. I'm trying to get down with foundations to get me out of that bad habit, because I can be kind of a render demon.

    Griffinfly- I-i-i....Hello!! Ahhh thank you so much you are too too kind I hope I do not disapoint!

    isokahru- Thank you so much! Foundations are the most important, they are your base stats when going into battle. And painting successful 3d shapes can be very challenging since you can see flaws more clearly which in turn help spot obvious mistakes to try and thwart.

    Vertical- Hahah thanks! Drawing is very fun so I try to imbue the fun I have doing it into my studies. Oh! Okay thanks for the signature pro-tip will do that right away.

    Oh thanks I'll mention that to my collab buddy! He has a way of making my eh' compositions into something wayyy better.

    AdrianNagorski- Thanks so much! I used to be very messy sketcher and trying to fix that when I study.

    evil_monkey- Thank you! I was taught the reilly method at Watts Atelier and it kind of spreads to all my work.

    Eludor- Thanks so much, I am a concept artist for Escalation and a clean up animator for Skullgirls so when I'm done with work I kind of just want to unwind with studying to make my work faster and better for my employers. But I'll try to post some concept work soon! I have a few fun freelance projects on my plate that I'm pretty excited for. Though I hope sometime next year I will begin drawing for myself again.

    But I will post some of the stuff I did in the last year so this SB will have something to compare off of in the future. Some concepts from a CGMW class and a monster from last year before I went to Watts Atelier.

    These charcoal studies are mostly 5 minute quick sketches and some being 2-3 minute quicksketches. The portraits are usually 20 minute lay-ins but I concentrated mostly on learning the Reilly method rather then shadow mapping with my 6 months there but I'm slowly trying to learn shadow mapping on my own now.

    Also I just got my package from my friend who picked me up supplies I needed so I can do Scott Robertson's rendering matte videos traditionally! I am very excited and hopefully will have a better camera by then to take pictures of my progress. And I luckily found the Dr. Sketchy's that goes on here, tomorrow there is a life drawing session so I will hopefully have some new fresh stuff up next update!

    Thank you! but not really I'm not improving neither fast nor efficiently as I'd like to but anyway...Your stuff is looking sick..seriously they show a mastery of form and rendering that I find very admirable. I don't really have anything to add you seem to know what you're doing. When I write a comment I always try to avoid merely doing some ass-kissing, however, It would have been pretentious and not fair in this case. Do you have a blog or something where you share a bit more about your studies and the thinking process behind them? Hope to hear more from you!

    Edit: I'd recommend placing a link to your sketchbook in your signature so that way other people and even you too could access much more easily to your SB. Cheers!
