    Dom Ross's Happy lil Sketchbook

    Hey guys, This is my first ever post on Conceptart.org!!

    I'm an artist from Ontario Canada, just wanted to share my sketchbook with the fine people of CA. Feedback/ Critiq's are very appreciated and you can be as blunt as possible, and I actually prefer that since I am trying to improve.

    Most of the stuff on my sketchbook currently is 1-2 years old and I have been drawing from a young age, but started seriously about 5 years ago. I don't wanna post images from back then since it's kind of embarrassing. About 2 years ago I started improving dramatically after doing figure drawing and after looking back at my old work it gave me motivation to keep going. I want to keep this momentum and move forward to make a career out of this.

    I really like the traditional figures you have there, my only advice would be to watch your edges on your digital paintings. Try to go in there and sharpen a couple of them to keep it from being all blurred, otherwise everything looks like its on a good track!

    I swear one day I'll be good. I swear one day I will be proud of my work. When that day comes, I'll need to kick my ass and try harder.

    Definitely, being edge-conscious will improve your work. Experiment with brushes
    Your studies are awesome, good rendering! I really love the 3rd, 4th, and 5th life drawings in the first post. There is a lot of live and volume in them.
    Cool imagination stuff too!
    Keep it up!

    Thanks alot for stoping by guys and for pointing out one of my flaws, I've been told in the past that I should clean up my edges/ and use a smaller brush. I have been using that advice in my more recent paintings, but I still get lazy from time-to-time lol.

    I have to break the habit one of these days!!!

    jow dom! thank for stopping by my place, and for the great advice. and what a wonderful sketchbook you have here. love, love that black panther, and those last figures on paper are awesome too!
    I do notice some of your stuff by heart sometimes lacks structure. it especially shows in the faces. the parts float around the face instead of being locked to a precise 3d grid. yeah. add those vanishing points and practice those cube I guess. im not any better there; I hate practising cubes!

    ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)

    Yea Ashess I always had problems with structure and faces, especially with womens faces I dont know why.
    I am also very bad at dynamic posing/forshortening, but that all comes down to my knowledge of structure.

    Thanks for stopping by and giving some feedback, its very appreciated.

    Cool, there is quite a bit of movement in those figure sketches!
