    Haha well that's one book cover more than me!

    I'm liking the screencap study in the last post. Nice simplicity to it. Do you feel like you learn more by doing it in only black and white? Also, you should post the original image so I can compare the two

    JiR: thank you
    Andrew Sonea: I did it mostly for fun and as a morning warm-up. It definitely forced me to draw/compose in terms of shapes and not lines. I kind of applied it in the alien bar sketch below. And here's the screenshot just for you http://i.imgur.com/UbC8I.jpg

    The Star Wars Cantina music comes to mind looking at the composition practice!

    Great start to a new sketchbook, looking forward to seeing where this goes.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Here's a new piece, "Giant's Pride". I wanted to create an image that somewhat sympathizes with what would usually be considered the antagonist.

    Damn @ these updates. You seem to be finding your groove with illustrations. "Evidence" is sick, definitely my favorite.

    Your illustrations have a really nice tone to them. Great narrative, thats a really admirable trait. It's that sorta thing that gets people "the job" so it's awesome that you have it. Excelent figure studies too. You're doing just fine :]
