Got more stuff to post.
Hmmmm no replies yet.
Are my pics showing up? Anyone?
Anyway here's a work in progress in chronological order.
Some digital experiments
it seems this is your first sketchbook, now what am I supposed to do...hmmm
Ow yeah Welcome here!
I like the stuff you make, and it seems that when you feel like it's beginning to go wrong you stop...
The reptile kind of skin suits you well to draw i see, only on the digital drawing the reptile seems to have a lump, I don't if it should look like that, so don't get angry.
Nothing else where I can help you with. so good luck and see ya!
My sketchbook (if you dare)

For your sketches, you need to think about a considerably higher range of values. Pushing the contrast in your creations will bring it to a whole new level. Anatomy seems to be a bit of an issue, as some of your characters seem to have unintentionally exaggurated body parts (shoulders too wide, or too high, arms too short or too long, etc). Try making a couple of posts showing just one character per page, with a considerable amount of effort put into each one, in addition to your dumps.
Sepulverture-Thanks for the advice my anatomy lacks in areas mostly cause I don't draw from life often enough so I'm doing some from Hogarth ref and other photos.
More crit welcome.

This was supposed to be in my first post just realised it did'nt show up
hey, "inofficial sketchmate"!
thanks for visiting my book, so let me return the favour: there's a lot going on here and i really like that. your pencils show a huge love for details and some skills, but (like said before) some of them are missing a bit of values, so it's hard to focus. but i like your monsters a lot and the studies for their arms and legs on the "torn paper" and the following.
hogarth studies looking good, except for the sitting one, but i guess you have noticed that... your last sketch page is my favourite, because it shows that you worked on everything that was mentioned before. great book so far, looking forward to see more of you!
Hi and welcome to SSG 20! I like your digital paintings of the two faces. But it seams to me that the most of your sketches are made from photos or reference book. Try to draw as well from life.
Hey Nii, I just wanted to comment on the amount of energy you are showing here man you've attempting it all, color graphite you name it great energy. I really like the faces you painted from photo reference. Like Ivan said try to draw from life, if you cannot take a class try drawing friends and family make them pose for you.
Oh yeah i almost forgot welcome to sketchgroup 20.
regarding your national geographic paint study, if your goal was to merely use the references as a base from which to paint faces then i would say that you succeeded. the paintings are more a representation of what you think a face would look like, many of the values are off or just arent there and there is significant distortion to the forms.
keep it up, nice work overall.
stineThanks for the comments, I'm still working out the kinks in the variation of my values.
Ivan.RCool> I tried to do studies of my family but they would'nt have any of it. My mum did'nt mind me while she was doing school work and the cats don't give a damn but they mave alot and I did'nt want to have just sketches of them sitting or sleeping.
ashrummG'day SSG buddy. Thank you for the kind words. I really want to get some life drawing classes. Too embarassedto draw people in public.
kyi_72I know. Could of tried better on the form. It's very hard to gauge the colour, especially on the lap top I'm using. Lap top LCD's are the worst.
Thanks for visitng my SB guys. Here are some more sketches for critique.
