    Can you share with us if you haven't already the pencils you use?

    I am looking to get more into conceptual designs and I just love that blue pencil work.

    I have a prismacolor set is this the same light Cerulean Blue.

    BTW, Love the style and everything I saw in this sketchbook, the color, the line art and Photoshop black inked thumbnails show such talent.

    Very inspiring!

    Damn John, thats all I can say, I really appreciate your critiques man, especially coming from an artist of your callibre. Your line quality is inspiring and truely amazing, Are those pencil sketches or tablet sketches??I love your color palette it definitly has a watercolor translucent feel to it. From what I've been recently learning I would say you paint using lower opacities in photoshop. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Can't get enough of it man. I'm around, later man

    Want more, more!!!

    in, very cool stuff.Not only great lines, but great colours too.I've thought of where I heard about the weasel dude.Very nice illustration and good start for a sculp, what he reminds me of is a character from the "Redwall" series of books written by Brian Jaques.Anyway, great stuff as usual.

    Keep 'em coming!

    ciao

    KingThorvar- Glad to hear it.

    DeadBunny- Hey thanks. I have done some Diterlizzi studies in the past. Guess some of that influence made its way in, though I am kind of surprised that you would compare my "style" to his. What do I dream about... stay tuned, maybe you'll find out...

    sinz- The blue pencils are just the Prismacolor branded Col Erase pencils, stock # 20044. A lot of scanners have trouble getting these pencils accuratly though, so I would suggest using regular graphite pencils it you want stuff to scan well. I use Tombow pencils; they are kind of expensive, but worth the price. The graphite in them is the best I know of.

    Skeiff- Thanks for checking in. You have a nice SB going yourself.

    Darktwin- No problem. You seem to get something out of my comments, and I think about the times people helped me. Just passing it on.
    Pretty much everything on here is drawn with paper and pencil. Digi lines are okay, but lack the subtlety and touch of texture that I like, so I usually only do tablet sketches for fast prep work and such.
    Yeah, I do tend to use a light palette a lot. I try to make the coloring technique befitting of the rendering style, and work with it, rather then compete with it. Not where I wanna be yet, but getting there I hope.

    ashrumm- Yes. Kickin' off page 3! Hope it's a good one.

    TheGnoll- I hadn't heard of Redwall before. I should check it out.

    Alright, some stuff to start this page off. I was going to color these 2, but I think they are better as just drawings, I couldn't find a color scheme that I liked for them.

    Amazing work. Big fan of the coloured sketches, excellent choice of colours, so a few seems perhaps a bit desaturated, though that may be a style choice (I like it personally, just thought I'd point it out though )

    Since I hate posting without crits -- I can't really see much, the only things I can notice in the latest sketches are in the second image, the thighs appear too long, perhaps because it looks like they are coming towards us. And in the last image, the position of the hand/arm is possible, but that pose is extremely uncomfortable to hold.

    Anyhow, keep it up, I want to see more...

    aeonflame- "...the only things I can notice in the latest sketches are in the second image, the thighs appear too long, perhaps because it looks like they are coming towards us...", You where right on about that; I adjusted the pic and reposted it over the old one. Better?

    tensai- Thanks, had that sitting around for a while, thought I'd throw it on here.

    Beelow- Sure thing
