I just moved here from DA. A cool artist told me I should register and start posting and participate here and so I did. I was hesitant before because I'm a bit embarrassed what with all the great talent in here.
I hope to fill this sketchbook with lots of late night practice. Can't wait to learn a lot from you guys.

Dude, even the quick sketches look awesome. Looking forward to art you post up in the future.
chrysler. post 4 is awesome.
Thanks for dropping a line on my SB. Your environment sketch with the green landscape and hovering boats is very eye catching Post 4, really brings the image to life. Well done!
I like the superhero poses too, did you draw these with reference?
cool stuff man! your getting there man, everything is looking good, just keep an eye on your tonal range. you seem to be keeping it within a grey zone. rather than utilizing all of the value spectrum. this is the point where you need to really think about what should be left grey (mainly bg) and where you can really push those values (mainly midground, and focal points). keep the foreground dark, but use highlights sparingly. keep it up!
wow! you draw the human figure so well from many angles, your work on values is good, and the landscapes are solid. you have the whole package, good job
Wow, the environment in post #4 is beautiful! I love the subtle gradations in colour in the relections on the water. Stunning.
Your figures are fantastic, too. So dynamic! My only critique would be that sometimes you seem to put a lot less effort in to the hands than the rest of the form.
Love, and I mean LOVE the environmental work you've done. You are very talented. I can't tell if it's the anatomy or proportions that are off on some of your faces.. but there is something a tad off there. I'd say you fix that and you'll be golden.
I really enjoy your environments in general and especially the black and white! They're quite convincing and sharp.
I also have a soft spot for the female Meca that you have on page #1 too.
Some people have pointed out some flaws in your characters but you're clearly working on fixing the problems. I'm really following that sketchbook and I'm looking forward seeing your progress and kickassery!
I cant beleave How you get such solid forms with just a few hatch lines in your gestures, you said I was getting better on my rendering, after looking at your works, I take that as a great complament.

I don't think rendering your gesture/anatomy studies is really a bad thing in general. I mean, sure, it takes up a lot of time you could use to push more studies, but I'd like to think it also gives you a more solid undestanding of the one's you've done. Plus, it's also much easier on the eyes. lol!
I don't think your gestures suck at all, btw. These latest updates are very nice. Keep pushing and maybe enter the chow once in a while to get your creative gears moving.
@Rhynn: I try. Thank you!
@Stryno: Keep it up and lets all rock together!
@Christoffer: I know what you mean. It's just that I've gotten so used to seeing form with values that I totally suck at drawing edges for a more gestural approach. But you're right, it's pleasing to the eyes and is a lot of fun to do.
@Merē.Jorg: Thanks for dropping by!
Here's another study dump. Been too busy running errands this week. Btw anyone interested in being a study buddy? It feels so lonely sometimes. ^_^
Love the figure drawings! You're human anatomy studies are superb! You are very talented keep up the great work I will look back to this to keep me updated
Solid studies here. You have a great sense of form and structure, though it would seem you have a wee bit of trouble with the proportions of the face when you work from imagination (atleast thats what I see with the first few and I thiinkk they're from imagination). That should be remedied in no time with some more portrait practice. And if you're looking for purely /gestural/ studies, then yeah, you're rendering a little too much; the point of gestures is to communicate body language and pose in as few lines as possible. Not that your studies are bad; not at all, clearly you're learning a lot about form from them, they're just two different types of study. i hope that makes sense. I wouldn't mind being a study buddy haha, do you have a skype?
also! where do you get your references from? :0 they look really good ahha
