stienmetz, yeah.....um any guidance on the proper technique of cross hatching would be really helpful, they don't teach jackshhh...poop in school. thanks for the crit though
kingcoyote, thanks man, i've just been doing stuff with an "H" pencil of late and can't be bothered working on them with a softer pencil ontop....but i will try do some really contrasty drawing to compensate
fooxoo, thanks a bunch
SillyLing, glad i could brighten your day
Quicksilver, thanks, yeah i wanna work on some of the basics(such as "rendering") like i said above, they don't teach you those things in high school
hokey dokey, here is a quick wip for my final in the teen killing machine thingy..... no its not a machine, but meh.....
here is my "final"..... i think.....
EDIT: (just made it a bit darker in PS)
i haven't done shading like this before....so it was kinda weird and doesn't work everywhere....his front leg has problems, and so does the hand with the skull.... but over all, i'm relitively pleased with this....it'll be interesting to see the competition
anything jump out as "bleh!"(meaning bad), please tell me before i submit!
PS:ok, so this isn't really a ps but, i'm kinda anoyed that the original sketch had more energy.... i find way too often my early ideas are better than the finished product

let me start of with saying that you've got a really nice sketchbook, great imagination, and great rendering of the subjects you do. I wondered, how long are you busy on things like the study of that hand and feet in post 41? I think you must be having fun with doing those studies, because you have shade it so beautiful I like your stuff, and want to see more of it
Hey there, dropping by to say hello. I particularly like the Olaf work, you've done, you have a knack for cartoony characters and it shows.
I'd like to see you try and be more decisive with your lines so that you can improve your line quality and ultimately your body of work.
