    It's great to see new sketchbooks get posted, and to watch the development of an energetic artist as they put in the time. I was wondering if you might tell us a little about yourself too. Like what to you hope to accomplish, how do you want to apply your skills, etc...

    @ Weterschneider : My background is mainly sculpture and stonne cutting, but I also do some 3D modelling. I'm here to refine my skills in 2D and learn more about character / environment design.

    Here is a rough 3D sculpt I made yesterday :

    It's inspred from the design I made for this week's CHoW challenge.

    Good work starting a sketchbook, i especially like the traditional sketches and your frog paintings.
    Great! Now fill a page with constructed heads using a site full of reference photos for angles to draw them from, paying attention the jaw shapes.

    Good start, nice studies, especially the composition ones. Really like the rats. As for feedback, just practice yer arse off Lots of reference, lots of life drawing, lots of studies, lots of yoga stretches and paintbrush curls.
