They say my recent work is much better than this old work. It's certainly different so if you want to just skip to the end rather than slog through 100 pages who can blame you?
For a better representation of my current work please check my portfolio or blog which are linked in my signature line.
I welcome comments, criticism, questions and money.
Thank you and enjoy.

Hello and welcome to my sketchbook.
The idea is to draw a different babe everyday or make changes to one I've already done, and then add props, costume bits, weapons and armor.
This is just me drawing for my own benefit with no particular meaning or purpose other than my amusement and practice. But I do hope that you will have a look every now and then and enjoy, ask questions, make comments, critique, ridicule whatever.
These will all be done from some form of reference: books, magazines, smut, swimwear catalogs, photos I've taken and life drawings.

Part of my purpose in this is to retrain myself to draw small. I used to do lots of small pen and ink work for roleplaying games and fanzines in the mid 90's, but since then I've been painting signs and murals. For 10 years almost no small drawings except rough sketches. Six feet is is kind of a cramped canvas if you ask me.
So the daily sketch and daily paint exercises are partly to retrain my hands.

hi nice drawings, the one thing that jumped at me right away was that the way the hand connects to the forearm looks odd. I'm no hand expert but it seems you need to either make the wrist smaller or the palm wider.
Hi, new to the forums. I love your use of shadows and shading. My favorite is #10. Great composition. Come by and checkout my Sketchbook. I will be posting more work in the next few weeks. There are some lovely ladies as well as autoart. Later
By the way darkchild, Thanks. I checked out your sketchbook and i agree with everyone else; your pencil work is far stronger than the computer stuff. I know nothing about computer art so I can't tell you why that is.
Ok we saw Star Wars again today and this time I decided to do something more star-warsy. I know I got her head shape wrong, but I did it from memory so there you go.

However, in the interest of art, the male pictured here seems to be missing what my wife and other women have called "male cleavage". The obliques? around the waist form this line that seems to be missing in the last one. Even men that aren't very muscular tend to have it defined. You may want to take a look at that. I'd also like to see some profiles and 3/4 heads. I'm sure you will nail it...
