    Scribblings of a madman

    Hey,

    The names James, I'm 23 and I'm from the UK. I work as a flash animator, and while it's fun/awesome job it doesn't allow for much opportunity to draw and as a result I feel I need to get myself into gear and really push my drawing skills if I ever want to be able to draw for a living...

    For the past few years I have used Tumblr as a sketchbook, on here are a few paintings and such, but I've been lacking feedback and a sense of commitment to it. So I'm making the switch to here to bump up my skills!

    Ill kick this sketchbook off with a few of studies. Any critiques are welcome, don't hold back! haha

    the one I like the most is the second picture, has a drab feel to it, that I really like.

    Keep going with the imaginitive ones, I prefer those, but other people are different.

    I love the studies and progress so far! That pinkish girl looks really cute and I can see her easily simplified into shapes. Keep it up!
