    Angry McLean's Sketchery*(New Sketchesszzss!!!)

    GO TO LAST PAGE for RECENT WORK.


    UPDATE: Most of the images are back now, no more little x's. Only thing is that they are not exactly in chronological order, and you might see a drawing posted twice or something, still working on smoothing it all out. Hopefully you can enjoy it anyway, and give some meaningful feedback!


    Hey guys, I'm new to this, but I've heard lots of good things about everyone here on CA, so Imma give it a run. I'd love to hear honest criticism (because getting compliments is never as interesting in hearing how you can improve). The last image here is the oldest, and probably the weakest, but some feedback is better than no feedback.

    This stuff looks so much more badass in real life... I'm glad you've started posting.

    Can't wait to see more...

    That's one crazy cow, man!

    Nice work here McLean. I dig the colored paper, w/ highlights approach. That first beast was sweet. I was floored when I got to the Statue bust. A real leap for ya.

    The only critical feedback I might offer (since you so politely requested them) is that I see a difference in detail and technique when you go from working from a model/reference to something out of your imagination (Climbing guy & Sword shoulderman). This is only natural, but I would love to see ya try to bring that solid shaping of form and light/shadow to your imaginated humans (the monsters seem good in this area).

    For example, if you had the same face from the bearded bust guy on the character beneath him with the shoulder knives, the made up character would seem much more believable and fleshed out. Just a small nit-pick.

    Great work, and I look forward to seeing what you do next!

    Cheers!~~~JadeDragon

    more sketches, hopefully interesting, but more likely average.





    sorry about this, my scanner was being a bitch, so I had to do a quick (and bad) photoshop montage. i figure since its not a finshed work, it'd be alright.

    EDIT: There were some horrible works here, which have been removed. They did not have any place being posted online, and you won't miss them, i promise. Move along to the next post my good friend!

    its great!

    Hey very nice drawings. I really like the tinted paper as a midtone and the white as high lights. I really like your rendering to. Nice figure and portriats.
    keep up the good work. ANd the crazy cow is great, so great.

    Ok, here be the new things. I'm sorta struggling with making effective use of sketchbook pages, but then again I don't just want to throw as much crap on a page as possible for no good reason- gah, anyway, hope these are appreciatd, and constructive feedback is always, always welcome.

    McLean, these are amazing. You have so much natural ability with your drawing, I am beyond jealous. Really great shadows, the contrast is immense. Amazing.

    These are up in the finished section too (though it was pointed out to me that I was a little quick to post them there) but I wanted to keep them together with the rest mf my stuff online- apologies if you've run into these images twice now.

    the first half of the hands are great... but after that you kinda trail off as if you got bored or something... ,o_O, cries.

    good job on the watercolors though, I could never keep it from bleeding.
