Sweet designs. Try not to use 100% black in your paintings. Think of your darks ( on a scale from 0 black to 100 light) as 8 or 5 at 30 or 40 saturation. Red cloth would be like 70 or 80 percent saturation in the shadow, and the accents have color in them. Just don't ever use pure black because that creates a black Hole in your pIcture that SUCKsss all possible hope of achieving good readable values. Try using the HSB slider if you use photoshop.

Mull, nice mix of works you have here. The style you've got going is working for you. If I can offer one crit though, I noticed in some of your sketches that you tend to outline things. It flattens the work and takes away from the volume and mass that's actually there. But other then that, good work!

Thanks a lot guys! Sorry it's taken me so long to reply....been hammered with work
styler: Thanks dude, he is pretty vicious looking. As i said, don't be fooled by the cheese!
whoami: Thanks a lot
codakromek: How you doing Coda? Thanks for dropping in again. Glad you liked the yellow fella. Now post more stuff!
ChrisMayernik: I try not to use black to be honest, but sometimes i get lazy and sloppy . Wish i could get my colour stuff half as good as yours.
Zord: Yeh, you're right dude, and it's something i'm trying to get away from. Been using really low opacity brushes to sketch out these new ones.
Placeboast:Thanks! Everyone's got imagingnation though, you've just got to combine different things from different sources and not be afraid of messing up. Some will work, some won't.
Fellah: Right back at ya dude!
Some alien heads for ya!

Those last few creature heads are wicked. I'd like to see you try and push the values more and really make em pop out of the page, give em that xtra bit of 3D pow, know what I mean? Check out Prom's tutorial for that kinda stuff.
Looking forward to seeing more.

I'm really glad you started this sketchbook. Your pencil work is superb, what pencils do you use? The concepts are very clear, very convinving. The fun really shows through .
My favourite of your paints is the warrior. Really impressive moody lighting, I'd love to see more like this.
Also I have a link to a tutorial you might like. It one guys method to painting his super detailed pencil drawings http://www.sofos.com/adi/tutorial.htm, Hopefully it can be helpful.

Tigermilk: I'm gonna be getting some more life studies done soon. I know i need to get back into them.
Hazamataz: Thanks man I use ordinary 2b pencils usually, but i'm trying to get better with my tablet, so most of my new stuff will be done on that.
Yeh, Adi's stuff is great...top class pencil work. I've tried doing something in a similar style a while ago but it didn't look half as good as i thought it would. Shame.
Thanks for the link to the UK thread. I'll drop in from time to time to say hello.
blacky: When Blacky's happy, Mulls happy
tgfx: Hi dude. I've sent you an email. Great site.
Floris Didden: Glad you liked them dude! That's a great compliment coming from some one as talented as yourself.
Got Prom as one of my favorites already. To be honest his stuff has had the biggest affect on the direction i want my art to go. I absolutley love the way he renders stuff with his big, chunky brushwork. He makes it look so easy
Some black and white sketches:
