    Been a while since I've had a sketchbook here, but I'll only go back a couple of weeks here...

    Some atmospheric transport ideas- marker, ink, charcoal

    Heh, I feel like I've been away so long nobody would recognize or remember me, but I suppose if I can remember people here then at least one or two would remember me. Here's some doodlin' last night...

    Hot damn it's good to see you posting again. Love the mechanical bits, each is neat in it's own way. Can't wait to see more.

    bootiful, really diggin' the shading, your things truly are shiny, the aircraft are fantastic, perspective's off in a few places but who cares they get the point across brilliantly.

    Machines

    Hey these are looking really good, no crits I can find in any of them thus far. One of your flying "machines" (I shall say machines as I'm not sure if theyre considered an aeroplane) reminds me of a gun for some reason :s anyway great work, would like to see more.

    wow awesome sketches! Really inspiring stuff. Designs are all totally cool. Only thing i can crit is the color work- i think you would benefit from some darker tones towards the shadowed areas. and some more changes in color here and there (for example rust stains, discolorations etc.). Although i realise its just a very quick color job, might be something to use next time.
    CRAP!

    So as not to pollute the board with excess threads...

    ...I'll just pick up my last sketchbook attempt. I've been pretty busy lately, trying to get back into my groove after a summer slump.
    Here's some recent stuff.

    Flexing my watercolor muscles after far too long...

    More tonight, I hope. If not, feel free to chastize me mercilessly for my lack of dedication. Or maybe you could get me a cup of coffee.

    dude, you're one of my new favorite artists... very consistent, but jumping around all over the place too. Awesome.

    that minivan came out extremely nice.

    Your rendering of metallic surfaces is really effective and impressive!

    I'm also really likin the watercolors, especially the color choice in the shadows and the reflective surfaces on the van. I wish I could have seen the process you did for the minivan, as I am very timid with watercolors and can't seem to sketch out anything with them without being confined to some rough-pencil barrier, if that makes sense.

    What size are those watercolor pieces?

    the watercolors are each about 12 inches on their longest sides. Here's a little OpenCanvas sketch, a concept for a Toyota MR2, should Toyota ever decide to start making cars people can be excited about again...

    Wow, nice work here. Your concepts are solid. So are your watercolors.
    What do you do for a living?

    I'm a student- no other occupation worth mentioning. Currently fighting procrastination and ADD in my struggle to assemble a professional portfolio.
    Smiling? Ha! Smiling is for suckers!

    (watch this space, new image entry tonight, hopefully)

    Here's a Z-car concept sketch. I think I'll refine it a bit more- nose feels a little fat, though it might be because the wheel arches are indefinite, making the wheels feel small.

    update: somehow, it got fatter. bleh... on to something else...
