hey hey! of the stuff i haven't seen already, the animals are my fave. i went to the zoo once and just ended up taking pictures, great job on those, especially staying away from making them stylized and keeping them realistic. oh, and guido.. haha... great 360 of him, i figured he'd have a forward hunch, what with being top heavy and all that...
I'm totally in love with his expressions, esspecially that smiles that makes him so rawr-worthy the 360 turn is really cool too, when i look at the front and the front-side it feels as if i could really touch him, and FEEL the 3D (if that makes any sense :' )
And i'm loving the hand and them life drawings, figures. Great portfolio and congrats once again on getting in :]
Cold: Thank you, I know I still have a long way to go before I can render and draw really convincing interiors and environments though!
Lewis: Yeah a whole freakin year! hahaha just goes to show how caught up I can get in everyday life and neglect the important things like updating my CA sketchbook. Thank you for your kind words and I'll do my best to keep this thing current.
Amarryth: Thank you, I sketched those out from photos, I never had time to go to a Zoo! I really want to make the trip someday. Actually I thought my animals were really stylized, just in my style. Hahaha yeah, I wish the front and back poses showed the hunch more though...
TheGnoll: I sketch in blue pencil because its erasable, I can get a wide variety of tones through it, and its a nice change from the greys. Yeah it was a quite a riot to draw that one out, I always stay in the same spot when I life draw, and the model usually rotates, and that pose was one of them, and well, I had to do what I had to do. Ive got some finished stuff, but from years ago, recently I've been working on this comic I want to release, of which i show a small preview in this post The first 2 pages are inked, but i want to redraw them, as my inking skills need SEVERE practice.
Atazure: Thank you! hahaha Im glad you like the expressions, I had fun making them! Thanks, I tried to flesh him out as much as I could, showing the weight is really important in creating a convincing character IMO. Hey, thank you! Im super excited to start next year.
Good looking stuff as always bro, you totally kick my ass.
With a protfolio like this your a shoe in for animation...if thats what you choose to do. Personally I think it would be cool if you were at OCAD with me, who knows what kind of art antics would ensue!

You got some cool sketches, I enjoyed looking at them. One minor thing I noticed though, is on some of your more full body pieces, the heads tend to get alittle small. Keep up the good work, cant wait to see more.
