1-10-07 ~~~>>>15 Image Update!!!!!
So, I had this huge elaborate speech planned out when I was planning this revamp but, now Im tired.. I just spent over 20 hours in the last five days rescanning everything you see here and clipping all this art onto these pages... I wanted everyone who came to my sketchbook to get the full scope of my artwork in the last year and a half that I have been a member here...
I started out as a person that just wanted to draw.. I thought that by just drawing I could get better. Boy was I wrong.. Conceptart taught me that I need to work so hard in order to make my goals happen. Reading the posts, reading the stories, looking at the art and even making a few buddies along the way.. I feel as if I came a long ways from when I started... I love to do life drawings now.. I sketch people on the train daily... I take my time, think, plan, create thumbs, roughs, comps for all larger pieces...
So, in saying that I want to say thank you all who have supported me, given me crits, praises, arguements, and many smiles...
So, here is my artistic evolution... My first sketchbook starts off in 7/04... less then a year and half ago...
BTW- I tried to put these in chronological order as best I could...
I did this for a TD battle... Create a Mythical God.. this is the goddess of the underworld.. Persperone or something like that!!!
This was for an anti-terrorist TD
AGAINST ALL ODDS Eatpoo competition
Goblin assasin thread...
EAST VS> WEST TD... the topic was Werewolves Vs. Vampires.. I was the Vampires...
This was for the ReDesign a 1980's cartoon TD...
My first C.O.W entry.. Create a venomous bird... this is the Darwinian Pelican...
This was for another C.O.W.. create a symbiotic predator..
I started this for the Achiac Priest TD...
This was for a Mother alien protecting her young TD..
This was for the dragon thread..
Graffitti Piece... the lettering is in her hair...
A loose pages page..

Hey, vicostar, Very powerful sketchbook. A lot of interesting ideas and very good performance. Well, that's some characters riding with your in a train daily . You are probably sketching with one hand and striking back with the other .
Rendering is very impressive. A lot of great drawings. I especially like the one from your avatar, this one http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...arzresized.jpg ( took it)
and http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...nstallodds.jpg (took it too)

Loomer- thanks a bunch man... lots of work... and I know that I need to work more then what I am... trying to inch my way there.. where im drawing at least 5 hours per day.. im doing and average of three right now... Thanks for your support dude...! it helps alot!!
Clogik- yeah dude.. this project took a long time... i was getting very antsy scanning all this stuff in... it was very tedious.. if you dont have patience I wouldnt suggest it.. but, the good thing is that I learned two short keys in Photoshop cuz of it.. ctrl L & ctrl T!!!! they were life savers!!!
Bumskee- thanks man.... I am really satisfied with the way the character came out... it was a little different from my usual stuff... im trying to generate different styles to have a nice rounded look in my portfolio... Im glad you think I'm improving.. just trying to keep up with you!!!!
SVE- yeah, lots of sketching on the train.. its becoming an art form for me... trying not to let people see that im sketching them becuz they get uncomfortable..!! sometimes i dont care.. i just look straight at them and im like "WHAT"!?~!! Its interesting when your drawing to just draw and when you start to draw becuz you want to learn and get better... You start to get alot better at drawing when you start to learn.. Go figure!!!!? and no problem with the saves.. interesting how everyone likes color!!! one piece you took was supposed to be a rendition of myself fighting my artistic demons!!! Thanks again..
Placeboast- yeah man anatomy is key.. but, figure drawing is more key when you start to learn.. i think you learn so much more drawing from life then you do from a book... Stop by again.. thanks for the crit..
Emooe- Thanks man... I work on drawings for many reasons.. Sometimes I want to work on speed, sometimes its for the linework, sometimes for the rendering and sometimes but very few times I want the whole package and I think those are the ones that stand out the most... glad you like the sketches and stuff.. Buonarroti im assuming is the sketch above my duke nukem looking character.. yeah.. I drew that from a book that has work from the masters.. great book... teaches alot of good stuff.. planes, mass, proportions, perspective all that good stuff... thanks for stopping by..

It's swell to see your progress. You're going places!
As far as improvement goes: I think you'd benefit a lot from spending some time on structure and anatomy. Studying and practicing perspective stuff would also be good, I reckon. You're quite good at rendering, and 'finishing' your drawings, but, to me, it seems that your lines aren't as confident (and fast?) as they could be.
