    Here is my 500TH post here at conceptart. 2 years ago I knew almost knew nothing about art. But watching other people improve has kickstarted my desire to grow as an artist. Here is to everyone who has helped me along and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to you all!

    A drawing I did for my annual christmas card, taken from a Haddon Sundblom Coke advertisement. ( with a few changes and my own little ideas thrown in)

    And a big thank you to my ssg, who keep me motivated.

    Happy New Year unkown_epiphany. Well your Santa face kind of reminds me of jelly the ear looks to low and the eye's very well align either other then that I like the beer bottles you got the see through glass thing down very well.

    Thanks for the comments EKU_11. Yeah I am really keeping to my new years resolution ( well one of them) and that is to draw everyday except yesterday and that was due to my parent's anniversary. Here are two sketches on the same page to make up for it. Top one is 3 M&M's and the bottom is the beer bottle making another showing with a cup for a sort of still life. The lines behind the bottle are my computer desk. Sorry for the horrible pic quality, my camera is not working so i had to resort to my 4 year old 2.1 megapixel with 2x digital zoom.

    Here are two sketches I did today. The beer bottle once more, done in India Ink with an old brush, and a character sketch called the banker. The co-worker wants a style similar to Edward Gorey's stuff. I did not have a black pen lyng around lol.

    When are you going to start doing something different from cups cause their bit boring some diversity ever now and then doesn’t hurt. Would like to see more of that banker character.

    Thanks for the input Eku_11. Yeah now that I look at it, cups just are not that amazing. Well here is just one more, along with a few banker sketches, and a sketch of an old cellphone. Sorry for the pic quality.

    Here is another Background for another character opf the banker story. The color on the speech is fading up because of his life spinning out of control. the reason the text gets bigger is because as the character becomes propelled forward in life his life changes for the worst.

    What are your goals?

    After two yrs in the art world what do you now hope to accomplish?

    I know your skills may not be nearly where you want them to be, but very few people's are. So why dont you just start working on something of production valve.

    I too was swept away by the art world late in Life. Me more recently. But I've decided to try cartooning for now and see how I like it.

    What do you want to produce?

    Edit: oh well never mind i see you are working on some sort of banker man idea. Ok that's good.

    Here is a quick doodle done with white charcoal on a ruined piece on black matboard. Its something different. I screwed up the face, the arms are too odd and long, and the torso is too long and the waist is too high. She is supposed to be in water. Drawn from old domai pic of girl.

    Thanks for the advice Nicoraven. I will have to look at some of your stuff as well. Your right I do need something to really grab me.

    Here is a redone version of the gunman idea. I thought the colors were too grand for such a poor and unfortunate character.

    Here are some more sketches from the banker. Done in pen about 5-7 minutes apiece. Used mugshots as some reference.

    You should change the colour around with the gunman and the banker the red is a lot stronger colour and would better relate to the gunman rather then the banker, good to see anatomy studies.

    Here are a few more sketches of the Gunman Eyes. I have settled on a few. The black slits are when he is in the blood thrsty mood, He also has sad eyes, and crazy eyes.

    I like the earlier barn owl, and I'm glad to see your Banker story is moving along. Your still lifes always seem kind of skewed though. Assuming it's not the camera, maybe you should try to add more error-checking during the sketching phase before you shade them completely? The shading is always good, but the symettry of the top and bottom ovals on a lot of your cups and bottles could use some work.

    Really glad to see you posting so much btw. Keep it up!

    Here is another few sketches of the banker and now his wife head sketch. I pu the different colors around them to signify their mood. I spoke with my coworker and he likes the idea. This whole baker story is for an older childrens book. The illustrations will most likely be pen and ink on top of a manipulated photo. each photo will be of a diorama or set that me and my coworker will make out of small objects: things like dollhouse furniture and foam and such.
