Book of Shiny Things
Thought it was about time I got up the nerve and just started one of these on CA. The drive and support on these forums is really inspiring, and I think this is the place to help me get to the level of art I want to be at. My goal is to eventually be able to do concept work for the game industry, but I am also interested in doing illustration stuff as well.
UPDATE: Working on more illustration gigs. Moving original stuff from this post to a later page for safekeeping!

Trying out the Pixelovely figure drawing resource. Ballpoint pen to force myself to speed up and to prevent any eraser reliance.

Some more recent things - a flying pig to break in my new sketchbook plus a preliminary sketch for a larger piece.
I really need to dig up some reference on emotions and facial expression.

Thanks for the comment on my sketchbook! But damn your pencil drawings look nice!
I just love the lineweight and reflection of the teapot!
See my latest Sketchbook work!
Feel Free to comment!

I love your still life drawing. Great reflections. I'm also painting still lifes.

Deceptive - No problem, and thanks a lot! That was something I was really paying attention to in that study, nice to know it paid off.
Cojac - Thanks! I'm trying to strengthen my basics by doing small pieces like these.
Elias Leonard - Thank you kindly.
Now that the holidays are over, family is gone back to the parts of the country they live in, and I can access CA again without my browser screaming malware warnings at me, I can start this up again. I started a really ambitious drawing in order to push myself based on a previous sketch - it's a huge 16 by 20 inch deal specifically intended to avoid eye contact and send the viewer's eye all over the place... I thought I was doing well on it until I took a photo and looked at it on a small scale. Unintentionally different head sizes, lack of facial planes where there should be some, and lack of contrast - I gots some fixings to do!
Nevertheless, here's a preliminary drawing and a progress shot. Not slacking (as much as it seems I am).

Thanks a lot, Cerasela! You're absolutely right about those basic studies - I've been overly excited about trying new stuff in my art lately so my attention has been on that, but I'll be sure to revisit the foundations soon!
Some more observational stuff for now.

Oh, ClockworkLives! Drawing random people is so much fun! Though, to be fair, I tend to opt for the back of people's heads... so maybe I'm chickening out! I'm enjoying both your out-and-about live stuff and your concept stuff, both! Thanks for sharing - I look forward to seeing more!
