    tentativesteps: ~KJK~ added, thanks.

    Black Spot: eh, I brought it up only because it seems like these SB list threads tend to be in the lounge instead. But if it's not a big deal to anyone else, it's not a big deal to me.

    Maledict: looking through your SB, you've got super impressive design skills. If you put more time towards studying figures, perspective, light and shadow, painting, etc, you could be unbelievable. These robot helmets are insane!

    Ian Barker: hah, that's one of the functions of this thread: to light a fire under people. I saw Algen's thread a few months ago--the first insane practice/learning thread I'd ever seen--and it felt like I'd been hit by a semi. I felt abysmal for a while after, but eventually decided to follow his example, though not to the same insane degree.

    JakehC: Robogabo was already very good by the time he started his SB thread. Does he have an older SB somewhere? Otherwise, doesn't count, unfortunately (though he's awesome). Bumskee's SB is missing all the images on the first 30-40 pages, but judging by the first reply posts, it sounds like he was already amazing.

    Both those guys started from the bottom on the forums. Gabo's old username was Gaboartpage. As far as Min goes, i think he did get rid of his old stuff.

    JakehC: argh, what a shame, his Gaboartpage SB is missing all of its images. Too bad. :/

    I vote this be stickied so we don't lose the crazy amount of improvement.

    Woah, first time I've bothered posting in a couple weeks or something, but had to because I saw my name there haha! I can't believe I was included here...I'm glad I can be a bit of an inspiration to some people, although I feel like the other people here outclass me by far. Now I need to work a lot harder because my improvement isn't as good as others and I haven't been working hard lately...

    Anyhow, cool idea for a thread! Here is one example that often gets overlooked in my mind: tehmeh. He's ridiculously good haha, unfortunately he deleted a lot of his old images in his sketchbook, but this image here floats around online a fair bit.

    Zombie: that'd be awesome. I also submitted it for inclusion in the next site header montage update, but that's probably a long shot.

    Mr. Sonea: yeah, there's so many SBs here gutted of their images, blah. Tehmeh's progress looks absolutely nuts. So fast. Insane drapery in that bottom one. Why the hell do people delete their early images? I'd think it'd be something to be proud of, showing how far you'd come (and in cases like his, how friggin' fast). Anyway, yes, you belong up there, your progress is also bonkers.

    Cool thread! Some sketchbooks I didn't know of here, so thanks
    I cannot even describe the awesome feeling it gives me to see everyone's progression in their sketchbooks. I'm so glad we get to share like this and observe eachother, and learn from one another, make friends, etc. It does make me sad when older posts' images have been removed ;-;
