cakeypigdog, it's looks like you've stopped playing the game. you might be one of those few people that, when I look at their art, I don't feel like I'm under attack, but instead that I'm being let in on something good. And I think these are very good.
Your stuff is getting really tight. I admire your thumbnails most of all. Keep up the good work.
fucking hell jake! there is some suberb stuff in those couple of batches, these two in particular really stand out:
that second one is spot on; could easily see that being the cover of a dark kids book or something- colour, balance tone etc all perfect!
I saw some of ur stuff at IMAF this year. I am happy I saw the others now. Great works!
Cordy: thanks, thats one of the nicest comments i've had in my little book, much obliged!
Bennett: thankyou very much, i feel like i am inching forward one step at a time, and having lots of fun doing it
newman: hi stranger!! hope your move goes well this weekend, i sure am going to miss you mate. You have been an absolute inspiration to me over these last few years. stay in touch! thanks for your comments too
boreworm: glad to see you have made the migration over here: its a great site with a massive variety of amazing art. Have fun!
ok heres my updates: first consolidated randoms from sketchbook.
+ last weeks chow enrty and thumbs
+ this weeks chow: very early wip.
ughhhhhhhhh...i hate you.
your design skills are just crazy. how do you even pump all these out...
i feel that your colorings really aren't up to par with the drawing, doesn't really show it off...51's coloring was much better than 50's.
Bugger me what happen there!!!! I look away for a few days and you drop the bomb, top stuff chap your hard work is playing off big time. Your work rate has gone through the roof and it really shows………….now I hate you
please sir can i have some more.....

Blimey!! What a mad amount of drawings! it's hard to pick something to focus on or crit as a first-time visitor.
I'm a sucker for stylised chunky figures, so that fat batman and the wrestler with the star on his belly immediately stand out for me. And there's some solid life drawing going on. And some great sheets of quick characters.
I'll come back soon with some kinda useful crit....
I like your stuff a lot. great life drawings, great characters. Even though I prefer them when they are still in their rough pencil stadium, but that's just me I think.
Hi chap I'm just kicking back and just thought I’d pop by before I’m of to Japan as I need pretty pictures to view and you have plenty at the moment. I like what you’ve done with the street fighter pictures as they still retain your style, which is a nice touch.
(Edit) I think i just made you go up to 5 stars thats a nice present Merry Christmas

farbtopf: cheers! I know what you mean about pencils: a lot of the time i prefer peoples sketch work to their resolved stuff!
RES: cheers ryan, thanks for the vote (straight back down to 4 i see !). hope to play with you more after christmas mate.
my take on our 2050's taxi projet
and some thumbs for this weeks project: boss monster.
a TON of quality in here, i love how you put humor into almost every piece! Your linework is full of life too, i like it a lot!
I'd like to see some more serious stuff from you tho, its easy to fall into a track and keep following that.
thanks nick! you continue to be a daily inspiration to me.
cheers slash!! thanks for your kind words. i agree with what you say, i do ten to execute to a similar standard/style each time. i shall maybe have a play with some more serious images. i just love having fun though!
here are a couple of updates. they are characters for a liitle poject i am doing with oishiiniku and ashab. has been great fun so far!
i love the style of those robots in b&w they are totaly awesome
i think the girl with the rifle on the 11th is strong, your noses tend to look really flat but it looks better in that one. maybe if you put more of a gleam on the axe on the butcher it would look more menacing
sorry i haven't replied in a while...everytime i try to see your sketchbook my internet dies o.O;; maybe you're cursed.
like the girls and their shapes hehe.
no seriously i like them and your character designs are great, very characteristic.
the girl in the suit and the gun is nice... like her face and that highlight on her nose. good that you didn't made her nose to wet and red ...
keep it up
hp: thanks for stopping by ! i often cannot open my own sketchbook either i have no idea what is wrong with it but it wont open for me about half the time!
haxxor: thanks very much!
ok here is todays pdate: lunchtime 20 speedie with a prescrbed 3 colour pallete and this weeks chow entry.
