Infin - glad to see you starting a sketchbook.
You are already getting known for some fantastic ideas, and for being a unique thinker on this board. OK - so you should be famous and rich in 6 months from now..
Well - not yet my friend! Here's what ya gotta do -
Study drawing - study art - and most importantly - study life.
I don't know if you even have access to a life drawing class, but if you do enroll now! Are you in college or planning to go?
Taking a life-drawing class will help you to develop your craft.
You have a great mind working up on top of those shoulders of yours....with interesting visions (that I feel would be great for a career in conceptual art)- Now you just to communicate these ideas with strong visuals...and that means strong skills.
- Keep this sketchbook going...it'll be your best friend

good start.. I agree with Loomer, he's made some good points. Also what Vigostar suggested elsewhere, study from life apply in your work. Grab and pencil and a sketchpad and draw heaps. Also for painting in PS, try to stick to hard edge for the moment.. Air brush look can really stuff things up quickly. Keep going!!

Thanks Loomer, that means alot to me. I finished college nearly a year ago now. (thats uk college which goes from 16 to 18. Not sure if it's the same in the US.) It was a two year fine art diploma, and as part of it I did a couple of hour's of life drawing a week. However since then I haven't drawn much from life. I Agree that I need to do more of this. I hope to get some sketching done today, so i'll post what I have later.
Thanks for you're comments too Bumskee. I am trying to improve my ps skills at the moment but I don't have much opportunity to. I don't have a computer at home powerful enough to run photoshop so I can only do these at work. (You can imagine what they think about me using their computers for it, but hey.)
I'll post some more as soon as I can.

Here's an update of some of my work. I am going to try and do some more drawing from life over the next few days. I will post them here when I have.
Until then I hope you like these.
A high speed vehicle concept. It articulates in the middle.

Here are some anatomy drawing i've done today. I hope you like them. Crits welcome.

Infinitum, good to see you drawing. the sunnies look very good. The anatomy needs lot of work, your lines lack confidence, your hands are too small, the gestures too stiff. The one on the bottom is your best, the form reads well. Have you looked at some of loomis books? I am sure you have, it's a good place to start and also keep up with drawing from life too. I guess it's all about drawing and training your eyes to see the important stuff. So keep going!!

Thanks Bumskee. I'm trying to really focus on anatomy at the moment so I should have some more to show soon.
Believe it or not I've never seen a loomis book anywhere. I've heard they are really good but I can't find any.
Also here's an image I meant to post earlier.
It's a work in progress by the way, so critiques would be helpful.

Just a small update. I'm hoping to do a coloured version of this one soon.
A small Peacefull Village

These aren't the real, full versions. Someone along the way published some pages from the larger books..but it's cheap and they are still well worth it.Loomis books
Bridgman...I've actually learned more from Bridgman...This book is also a good price for what you get inside.
Get yourself a decent anatomy for artists book, and dive in.
I like that little environment you posted. The windmill might be a little large if it is receding into the background like that - I dunno...something about it I find very pleasing to look at

Thanks both of you for the Loomis links. I'm going to try and get one of those Bridgeman books. They look good. Some pdf's of Loomis's work would be great Bumskee if you can find them.
I'm glad you like the village picture. It was very peaceful and relaxing to draw. I agree that the perspective is a bit off, but I drew it straight out in biro so I couldn't change it.
