    Allright hes an update. I gotta say that first post was an overwhelming success. This one has more finished(kinda) pieces and hopefully ill get some responsesthis time.
    Forgive the horrible scans and smudges cause its mostly not my fault the smudges were cause by some of my friends who were looking through my sketchbook and messed it up and the scans well ..i cant figure out how to scan correctly but thats the scanners fault not mine its never my fault not while i have others to blame.



    I feel that this piece needs some explanation its for the weekly sketch challenge over at the tentonstudio.com forum the character is terror inc and well it take way too long to explain why hes got wolverines arm. google him.


    well this is a landmark piece for me cause i used ref and i drew a woman who actually looks like one and not just an ugly tranny. Shes one of the better looking trannies shes farther along the hormone treatment


    some random stuff and some hellboy ripoffs


    well my excuse for this masterpiece of American illustration is that i was bored.... really really really bored

    sooooooooo yea uhu thats it sorry for making ya read so much(like u read anything )

    Nice start to your SB here. Looks like you're trying to start some character studies, so if you haven't already, I would recommend downloading loomis here and study that like crazy. Try to draw from life as much as possible too, it'll help you to think 3 dimensionally. Keep at it, hope to see more from you.

    Hi ya, the size of the pics is all right I'd say but if you really want to resize them it's really easy to do that in a painting software such as Photoshop or painter or in a Picture viewer like ACDSee. If you haven't got any of these you can do it even in the Microsoft paint utility which goes free with your Windows. If you're using a Mac there's a paint utility on your system for sure.
    And also follow AvatarJimmy's advice and have a look at some loomis anatomy. And draw like crazy...

    Good that you are drawing bridgman, but try using fewer lines, and don't 'scribble' back and forth (See the first few pages of my book, if you read any of the comments you know what I mean).

    I like This one, but when you draw try making it more like this'n!


    Good luck to ya'!

    Saludos amigo cubano! no te preocupes por que la gente no postee en tus Sketchbooks, simplemente tu haz lo que tengas que hacer, y con el tiempo irán llegando tus comentarios. Para tener 16 años estás dibujando excelente, si yo hubiera dibujado así a esa edad, estaría hoy hecho una máquian, trabajando para Massive Black jajaj que modesto no? bueno sigue dibujando y dibujando más!

    Pixel: thanks for the advice much appreciated
    Gringo: gracias por comentar

    trying to draw more faces and stuff from ref. Can you guess who it is?


    the ref for this i got from some pictures in pixeldragoon's sketchbook


    that "angel" figure was actually a bodybuilder but because of the lighting it felt very angelic and serene so i added the halo


    doodles while listening to the radio. bababooey bababooey!!


    another one of those drawings that i love the whole feel but im afraid to finish cause i might ruin it


    deer


    just a face i kinda like


    some prelim stuff for a piece i wanna do


    more stuff for that same piece


    and thats all for now
