Hi! I'm new around here and decided to take up the suggestions some of the people in the lounge said and start my own digital sketchbook. hopefully i can keep at least weekly updates. but here goes nothing! heres a self portrait i did for about a half and hour while talking on the phone (i had a headset on, hence no phone)
Tell me what you think. i'll update with more sketchs...probably older ones within tonight, tommorow and through out the weeked.

Reason: change in title
This was practice useing an actual ink well and nib. i had never used one before. the grain of the paper was very rough so the edges of this are probably really shacky. i used a reference from a magazine of a flower vase...the angel was holding the vase inbetween its wings...if you were wondering where the vase part came in. but i guess i stylized the wings cause you cant tell they were curved around anything...oh well, its also an older piece:
Haha! Laugh at my newbtastic skills!! this was my first attempt at drawing a car. This was my first car, and i just sat in front of it and tried...after the front grill it all went down hill...but i thought it would be an interesting thing to post at the begining.
As the subject line states i have new sketchs. these are from my most recent sketch book...still these arnt studies persay but they are more developed towards my current thinking of artwork. i need to work more on my anatomy, consistancy, values, volume, and perspective. still i guess this is alright for now:
I know her right arm (our left) is a little long for her torso...and her hips are probably pivited wrong...but i'll let you guys be the judge of that. she was inspired by some fashion models i had seen on tv. i like her moody expression...the headshots were practice to try and re-make that moody expression. dont know if i succed though.
I was sitting outside when my kitty Morris came over to eat, and then came to join me. so i doodled his back end (the tiny scribble in the center) and then i tried to capture his face, very quickly (he doesnt stand still for long.) they were done in charcoal...and the other was just some abstract scribbles to fill in the space. i was still tinkering with abstract art at the time (which i should countinue)
Concept art for a uniform/outfit for my character Tsunde...as well as haircut ideas. she's supoused to look like a boy, hence the short hair and small breasts...i just thought this sheet gave you guys an insight on how i doodle across a page in my book.
and this is the mos recent piece of all. i did this like two nights ago while talking on the phone. again it was just basic doodles, but i was trying to concentrate on the figure...i was tired though. i kind of like the semi-self-portrait thing on the bottom left...even if the eyes are too big...theres something about it i like.
so there you go guys, bombs away...dont hold back. and maybe i'll go off and draw some more.
thanks for the comments. i want to try harder at drawing better, so i figured this would be the best place to start off with, cause the critisim can be harsh sometimes. (I figured i would get used to it, seeing as i am planning to go to the art insititure of Fort. Lauderdale in january...might as well get used to being told whats wrong.)
i'm glad to see i'm not the only one who goes through phases with their drawing utensils? it makes me happy to hear that.
above all thanks for the comments again. such little things keep me going.
More sketchs! but these are from the past few hours!!! YAAAAAY!
Chihiro and NoFace from Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away." i love Hayao Miyazaki...hes my idle, and from time to time i take a break from my art and try to draw in his style...this was a pen doodle. i looked up and saw my poster and felt like drawing no face, then i added in Chihiro. i really like this doodle!
More doodles, trying to add more volume to my illustrations...the two on the top left corner are supoused to be a character named Inez from a manga called "Arcana." the one in the middle, i dunno just a woman, same with the one on the top right hand corner. the one shaded on the bottom right is Yorda from the playstation2 game ICO. awesome game BTW. and the rest is random doodles.
