    Hey Sikkness! Thanks yo! Yeah, took a look at that sword and it does look abit off on the skinny side. I think the problem is the perception. It's supposed to be in an angle but instead it just looks skinny. I need to work on my depth and shading. I saw your drawings and they look awsome! Like the Gandalf! Your anatomy studies look great.

    Anyways, here they are.

    Nice work you have here Imp, seems like you have a good handle on foreshortening. I like the pencil sketch of the scared guy, Skeletor too. The lion tattoo is really nice, as is the digital painting. If I can give a crit, the top of the shoulder connecting the arm is a little off, but i'm sure you can fix that. Layers! Goodluck with school too. Cheers!

    zord- thnx man. i'm not sure what foreshortening is but i'm glad that i have it. I see what you mean about the girl's shoulder.
    I though something didn't look right when I was at the end of this practice. I'll revisit this and make the changes.

    well, here's more tattoo designs.

    doodle from lmpnoodle
    this is the first draft of an add on tattoo. the middle tribal is not mine.
    The mermaids are what I'm trying to add. kind of boring but the guy likes it better then the second draft.

    doodle from lmpnoodle
    second draft for the tattoo. not real happy with this one either. hoping to get some suggestions from you guys
    I was planning to make the female's bottom half an octopus.

    I need to sketch more often.

    This is from a photo ref from the web. I know I'm off on some stuff here.
    That's why I need to sketch more...

    A Frazetta. One of my favorite artist.

    Another one from a ref. Again, I can see some crap that I need to work on.

    The sketches you created with reference, the last few, specially the female characters are awesome.
    From the filename I see you used Frazetta as ref, hes awesome.

    Anyway, using reference is a good thing, just try to use it more as inspiration.
    Just keep on sketching!

    Here's a digital color of one of the sketches above. Not done yet, since I'm not to happy with the negative space and the texture of the robot. Other things that bother me, like the balloon. I think it needs another branch to make it look more "stuck" like it should. Any C&C is very much needed and appreciated!

    Been awhile since I've posted anything here. Real busy with school and trying to fill up my sketch book for this semester. Any way, here's some stuff that I've done for my analysis of form class here at AAU.

    This was for a drapery study. The drawing got ruined a bit before I could put some fixatif on it. My camera sucks.
    doodle from lmpnoodle

    This was just today. Homework for the drapery study. I'm planning to redo this. Not to happy with some of the core-cast shadows. And I don't know about the comp.

    Torso cast study.

    This was from a workshop. Didn't have enough time to finish this since I came in late.
    doodle from lmpnoodle

    I have other drawings in that sketchbook, but they're not worth the bandwidth. Well, I'll try to post more. Thanks for looking.

    Hey man, keep these posts coming! That way we can see the progress/process. I'm liking the drapery studies, you seem to be grasping the form of cloth quite well. We need more studies of anatomy in here too, forms, hands, eyes, everything studies! Do it. Just keep posting and showing work man. Cheers.

    Hi there, first off, thank you for commenting in my SB!

    The drapery studies are beautiful! Your gestures are very well balanced, and the digital pieces are coming along nicely. I like your latest charcoal piece and the perspective of the room. Keep it up! I'll be keeping an eye on your on SB

Great characters, and thx for stopping by my sketchbook!
very thankful!

That clothe studie really show some skill, acctually FAR higher than the
rest of you stuff (wich Im also admire you know so thing bad! )

Do some more studies , and try to move it into your own work!
That will really make big improvements.

Thats only tips I acctually got, since your are pretty much Awsome on what
you doing man!, so keep it up! looking forward to see some updates!

    Hey Imp!

    Nice stuff you are doing. Ilike a lot the still lifes.
    Though the shading ability you have don't show too much in the non ref stuff.

    Something you can do to work that out is, when you draw from life or ref, try to find out why you see what you see. And when working from mind, try to imagine volumes and chose a source light and keep it till you finish (is easy to start shading and forget where the light comes from, to me at least ).
    Find the why! Thats pretty much what I do

    Keep posting and practicing!

    man, I need to do more sketchs!

    Thanks everyone for all your crits.

    Here's a little of what I've been doing. I actually finished a whole sketchbook
    during the last semester. I want to try for two in the fall. These are just
    some that I think are good enough to show. The rest was just crap.
