    and what's in my sketchbook right now. The dog drawings are me doing reproductions out of a book. I think it's this one;

    okay, first post. I'm finally making a sketchbook. I promise to upload the good and the not so good in an honest attempt to track my progress. Comments, crits and helpful suggestions are always welcome .

    That landscape is great! Only thing I notice is that the reflection of the nearer area on the lake doesn't really match up with everything else. It looks like a stylistic choice though, so maybe it was intentional.

    Your people seem very organic too--no one looks stiff and their movement is very evident. You should definitely post more stuff!

    I actually hate that face sketch. But I figure if I posted it, I could maybe shame myself into drawing better. SHAAAAME O_____O

    Also, crits on the enviro would be much appreciated. I don't do too many of them, so I'm forcing myself to try and tackle them more. Last but not least, here's a little doodle of Batman punching a dinosaur

    agh, no you nailed me on that. Not a stylistic choice. Just me being lazy. I vow to be better in future. And thank you very much, I love drawing figures and I try very hard with them.

    Little sketch from my moleskine. Chow this week is 'Leader of the Pack' and I couldn't get the idea of this little girl and her poor cats out of my head so I drew it out. I'll do a proper entry later. Also, color study of the day ; I feel like the colours turned out alright, but I didn't quite get the proportions of her face. And I wasn't quite up to the chainmail as well. Also those eyes ! Eyes always kill me. I feel like I can never put life into them.

    hey Wolfnoom. Thank you so much ! Ahaha, I can't really think of a single book off the top of my head. Mostly it's from lots of life drawing and from observing the work of other artists and seeing how they tackled the same problems. I'd recommend checking out the work of Kei Acedera, Force by Michael D Matessi (really great for teaching you gestural life drawing with life in it) and um, generally just drawing lots I guess : )

    both recommendations are hyperlinked

    Just wanted to pop in and say that I love your work! Your human forms are so full of life and movement, I feel like they could spring forth into being. The only thing I would have to say is that in your most recent enviro, the trees seem a bit sparse and more dull in color compared to the rest of the surrounding greenery.

    Can't wait to see more from you. Definitely a sketchbook I'll be stalking.

    Thank you so much Hai-Lei. I really appreciate that. And thanks for the crit on the enviro. Sometimes it's just nice to have fresh eyes. I think you're right about the greenery - looking back at it, those mountains are way more detailed, and fg is usually more detailed than bg.

    Thank you so much Rostas ! I'm really flattered. This might be a stupid question but I honestly don't know. How can you subscribe to a sketchbook ??

    Great work mate. The master studies are looking really good. Your chow design looks great! You translated the weight of her leaning on the spear really well, which is not easy! Keep it up!

    finished up a CHOW sketch from ages ago. And a few heads below. I'm thinking of doing the 1000 head challenge. Bit intimidating - I'm up to 24 right now.
