    More studies from ref.

    Wrappiii - Thanks, I used to be on here a few years back but haven't really done much drawing for a couple of years. So I'm kind of starting again.

    Big orange - thanks, but I'd like to get a tighter grip (strangle the crap out of it)

    Lux_Aeterna - Thanks, i probably won't finish the siren though.

    Whitevillage - thanks, as I said to Wrappiii, it's not my first time on conceptart.org. But I'm getting back into drawing again.

    DaveGarcia - thanks, I haven't actually studied art formally, just self taught. (which is still studying i guess). Anyway been drawing on and off (more off) for a lot of years, want to make this sketchbook as long as possible.

    amazing stuff you have here my friend. a perfect variety of stuff - anatomy studies, stuff from imagination, painting, and drawings... both inspiring and educational! (to me anyways ;D)

    post more please!
    i would love to see what a fully finished piece by you looks like.

    mmm motorbikes and hands, my two favourite things in the world. More studies, the bikes are kind of half studies as I made some shit up on them.

    ManHands - lol nice forum nick. I would also like to see a finished drawing from myself, whenever that may be

    Damn, very nice stuff. I really need to kick it into gear with my anatomy... yours is looking very nice though.

    More drawing for today, this time a scifi bike racer sketch and the first page of my random sketchbook.

    I've drawn every day for a week now, now to take it to a month.

    thanks for the comments,

    big orange - maybe too many boobs? i should start drawing penises to even it out.

    Mighty cool design things here. I wonder though, do you use Painter
    for those clean lines? I heard it has a superior "line feel" or something
    to photoshop. Well, that it's better at fine lines than photoshop, but
    not much else. I'm going off on a tangent here, but you get it.
    You have a very good sense of shape and line. Your colors are also
    very nice. Only real critique I can give at this point is that sometimes
    you muddy your values a little. Do more lovely studies, they're all
    great to look at!
    If you ever have any questions, or you want help, all you need to do is shoot me a message.
    Can't hurt, right?

    Some more stuff, just random drawings from imagination this time. I'll probably work on the assault team drawing a little more later as it's fairly rough.

    Toffers - I use photoshop, the lines aren't really that clean, I use a light brush to lay it out and then go over with a dark brush, kind of like pencils I guess. I hear what you're saying about the values, the more time I spend on something the muddier it gets. I'll need to work on that.

    cheers.

    I've decided to continue on with that assault team drawing, so here's another wip, not sure where it's going yet but meh, i'll just keep plodding along.

    Also my other IDW sword.

    ANtY93 - yes he, would piss with all at once and it would be messy.

    joshbailey - derogatory comment avoided
