    cool, nice use of tone specially on the bullet. My only crit would be to go a bit more into the background seeing as these are still lifes, even if it is just showing where the shadow falls.

    Here. I would say the portrait is probably the strongest piece, because you used more tone than harsh line like your other pieces. I would suggest trying to create the form, ESPECIALLY in the skeleton pieces. I know its tough w/ the inkwash but it gives it a lot more form and helps get rid of that flat feel. And don't forget the stronger the highlight on one of those bones ther stronger the shadow it will cast~*

    Looking nice overall. You seem to scribble a lot, so maybe line economy is something you should consider. And you can fill up a page wayy more than that! (save the rainforests and entertain us!)

    Like the SP, but it could use some more contrast. I envy your lips, beautiful and pouty.

    thanks cookie. ive got a real loose style, hence the quick scribbly lines. Ive been trying to reduce the lines, but whatever. Those super scribbly pictures were 10 second thumbs done of moving people in the mall. thats about as much as i can economize.

    well, back to the sb.
    finished that there SB i was working on.. i think.
    Does it need a background? you decide!
    some smudges ended up in the top, and the scan is wrinkled. doesnt really do it justice, but you can tell.

    i posted this in the wip section too, but its mah fookin sketchbook.

    hokay. so. i worked my arms off on this project of mine, but ive run into a wall. Im pretty content with myself in the picture, so im going to leave that how it is for now. But i need some background. What i want is some scene of a war-torn wasteland. pr'aps a convoy of refugees/freedom fighters somewhere close by, with a dark city-17/midgar-esque mega-city in the background. Im fucked if i know how im gonig to compose this, so if you want to throw down any pointers that would make my day. Be sure to tear through what ive got with some C+Cs. pleaseeeee.

    thanks holmes

    (same scanner routine. it sucks. im buying a better scanner and printer within the month)

    Advocate of Fate: glad to see you started up this "Clever thread name" sketchbook! this one http://img425.imageshack.us/img425/2361/dsc025256ra.jpg is really niiiiice. i know how much it sucks to not have a good scanner.... my scanner at work is pretty good but i'm hesitant to get another one because i don't like the espson cheapo's so much... sigh, what to do. I had a microtek but those dopes won't update their drivers to be osx tiger compatible.

    i'm ranting. and this is neither the time nor the place. Advocate of fate is after all packing some heat. lol. One suggestion that i'd make for drawing something as sharp edged and straight as that bullet would be to draw the edges of things with a ruler. it will save you a tremendous amount of time and the machined edge will look so much more appropriate to the subject.

    keep up the great work... your portraits are improving... the neck , chin and lips on this one are really nice!
