my (sometimes) daily sketchbook
Please Scroll to the bottom for the newer stuff
[updated] I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all the professionals that post in this site, you are an inspiration to begginners like me.. I hope that in about five years I will be able to get close to your level of quality.
Art is my hobby, it's a good break from the daily grind, I've never taken art classes but I did read "Drawing on the right side of the brain" and i've been doing some life drawing, I need to draw everyday and sign up for classes..
[update] I'm beggining a life drawing class on april 7,2005.
I started drawing seriously in december 2005 after giving up back in collegue a long time ago...
Here are some pages from my sketchbook, a lot of the first drawings were made on the plane while on business trips, some are references from magazines, some from imagination

There are some nice things on this page.
The thing you need to work most is shading. You should also continue your anatomy studies, cause this is something important.
Btw... if this is a sketchbook, try it at the "CA.org Sketchbooks" area: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=41

Very good images. I think what you could try to improve is the combination of lines and values.
Maybe do some lineart images and some completely without lines. Then later combine them again.
Right now I guess the shading doesn't quite work and the lines kinda keep it together.

Head Study from Hogarth's book
Here are some head studies that I did from illustrations in "Drawing the Human Head"
C&C are welcome

Hey there, I thought I recognized your name from somewhere... I lurk around the DSG! I really like that first batch with all of the faces, you do really well on those. Were those all from life or photo ref or what? The one with the guy's mouth open is really cool I think, I dig the mood on that. Can't tell if he's screaming or yawning though! On some of the drawings for the dsg's it seems like the anatomy or perspective or the balance is a bit off and it leaves the figures a bit stiff or funky. Post more!

Thanks for the feedback runtosaurus, yes, some of the images on the first batch were from magazine photos that I drew while on the airplane - you can usually tell which ones are from imagination, the perspective and the proportions are off!! but I'm working on that, I got a bunch of books (loomis, bridgeman, perard, etc) and I'm going through them and doing some studies as time allows and I signed up for a life drawing class that begins next week.
I'll post more tomorrow
