hey, nice start. you've got good variety. the rendering is descriptive yet quick and to the point which is bringing a lot of life to the drawings. i think you're right that some more hands and feet could be shown, but the ones that are there look good, especially the guy doin the like, inverted peace symbol. anyway, keep posting more of what you're doin.
hey man thanks for the comments and critiques!
i plan to throw some more stuff up once i get it scanned, hopefully some more of my pages with thumbnails of landscapes and what not, and more hands and feet.
Lookin good man...Definetly have a style that lends itself to comics...which is a good thing. Keep doing those life drawings and postin more....
Loomer: Thanks man, I actually do do comics a lot, im working on my own graphic novel right now (WHO ISNT THOUGH? COME ON!), but plan on sending some pages to marvel and other bigshots soon, as i look forward to rejection.
Small update, tomorrow is life drawing, so hopefully ill have some new stuff scanned in on thursday to update with.
the girl with the big breasts is teh only thing worth looking at on the page, everything else on it is shittay. I've recently come down with a brokencow fetish, i love his shorthaired girls, so i decided to take a stab at drawing my own.
ive just noticed that the hands were cropped! DAMNIT! oh well :@
Good thread ~ well done figurative works ~ come to the asylum
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...
really cool stuff...may i ask if there is a reason for sketching with a blue pencil? (i see you aren't the first one so i was wondering why)
anyway, cool stuff (quite strange staring right into somebody's asshole, but whatever, guess that's anatomy too )
don't have any crits really, just keep posting (got any finished stuff? i'm curious)
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 :]
hey! thanks for the replies everyone
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.
Heres some non portfolio related work!
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!

wow! you got a lot of great stuff man. i really like lin. and your character designs are sweet!
Thanks for commenting in my sb, you got a great one going here. Love the life drawing work and your characters, I really have no crits at the mo :X. Do you do any enviros?
Thanks for the replies guys
Brall: Even your girlfriend can kick your ass, so thats not saying much! hahaha Id imagine late night DnD sessions with a last minute attempt at a painting is what would ensure if i went to OCAD
Alcian: Thanks! I draw the occassional environment, but its something i really need to work more on. Ill do some and post them in here!
Heres some stuff from today on the bus.
Nothing outstanding really, but im trying to keep this thing current
Heres a small update on the cover in progress from my comic.
Seeing it so small I see lots of glaring issues that need to be tweaked!
stupid photobucket resize!
slightly bigger version can be seen here.

yeah i hate how small photobucket make your pictures sometimes. i noticed the guys left foot/lower leg is in an odd angle the the arm on the handle bars is a little long.
Nice life drawings, and cool character designs you've got. I also really like that digital painting wip up top. Great stuff. Good luck on your comic!
heres an update on the cover!
Some things still need tweaking, but its getting there! Thanks for the crits guys!
edit: If anyone knows how to remove the blue bar resulting from scanning images in halves in photoshop please let me know.
Started inking this, for some reason photobucket likes to fuck around and resize it! Even though the image is like 200kb *sigh* ah well..
Fellah: Thanks dude, I've always been a huge fan of your work!
A speed self portrait, Im trying to be more experimental with colours but I dunno if im doing to well at all.
Expect to see a fair sized batch of sketches in the upcomign weeks, just need to rehook up my scanner!

wow these are really great, post more.
latest update, scrapped the old one, im loving this new one.
Flex: Shit thanks man! Im trying! Maybe you should practice what you preach, I love your work, would be interested in seeing more of it!
Hey brother, I'm liking what I'm seeing.
I'm digging the new style your trying out, and I think your colors are interesting. All in all good stuff.
Because of you I'm going to do something and post it up soon... You sir are my inspiration!
Another update, still have some proportion/perspective tweaks, wondering if i should add some serious contrast by turning it into a night scene.
Brall: Glad your liking my new direction, and FUCK YEAH! PAINT MOFUCKAH! Thats my aim man, to inspire others.
