    Here's the final for my Winged Healer CoW. Well, more or less. I may still work on it, since I'm not really satisfied with it as it is. Cloister helped me out with a very nice paintover, which is why I changed the composition so much.
    Also, a WIP for my Waterfall City. The messily colored in stuff is as ugly as sin itself, but I'm pleased with how the rendering is coming along for the jaguar.

    Good stuff man. You seem to have a pretty good grasp of colour (though it gets a little saturated in places-- my vice as well), and the studies are real good. Sometimes your posing can get a little uninspired and boring, but overall it's a good little sketchie you've got here! Keep it up!

    Ookchk- Thanks for the comments! For the boring poses, were talking about my life drawings or of just my general work?
    whiteeeeeee- Yay! One of my favorite creature designers! Thanks for the comments and the stars!

    I don't have any work to post today, but I have been drawing...I'm just unable to post them right now. Still no scanner, and the new image I'm working on at school is still on the school computer. I'm drawing some actual buildings and rocks that I'm happy with (buildings and rocks are hard for me), and I'm doing a copy of one of Doug Chiang's paintings from Robota. Just in case you were wondering.

    Thanks, theredshoe. I'm glad you like my colors, but really, I have a lot more to learn on that subject. Go look up Idiot Apathy's sketchbook; no there's a guy who knows colors.

    Hi fellow sketch group Wow I saw great improvement from your first page to last. Seems like you are getting a feel for color, and lighting. I really enjoy your one dinosaur piece from post #127. I can cleary see your influences with the dinosaurs/ creatures in general. Alot of your character designs have a great feel of character and personality to them. As for as crits keep pushing your contrast is some of your pieces, I really enjoy your cows, but it seems like you start with a good execution, but stop at a certain point on them and feel like if you spent just a little more time on them you would have some great illustrations. Maybe pick a certain project, and really try to complete it from start to finish, and if you can't try simplefing it slighty to meet your schedule. Overall though you have made a great journey, just keep pushing... you'll get there in time.

    Howdy! I really like your monkey piece, lovely way you've painted the trees and bushes. The final composition is very nice, provides a direct focal point to the piece. I can feel the behaviour and movement of the monkeys by the way you've drawn the poses, which is very cool. I'd make the colours warmer by adding touches of red in the fur, but that would probably change the look of the piece. Looking forward to more.

    Pterosimian doodles

    Yautja- You know, what you said about working to a certain point and then stopping was a very appropriate crit. That's a problem I've noticed but never really thought about. I just get to a certain point in a piece and don't know how to take it further. Of course, a lot of these pieces in here are just works in progress that I've been neglecting, but still, putting a nice polish on things at the end is something I need to do. Thanks!
    Camara- Awesome!
    amer-nazri- Thanks for the comments, man! I'll see about warming up the blues of the monkeys' fur.
    This sketchgroup business is pretty cool!

    Since I haven't updated since day before yesterday and I don't want to break my own every-other-day rule, here's some doodles for ya. Recently, because I'm without a reliable way to put paper sketches on the computer, I've come to use Photoshop as a sketching tool. Basically, variations on the theme of my flying monkey; or, as the fictitious scientists call it, the pterosimian (same thing in Greek/Latin). Some pseudoscientific ramblings, because I enjoy them:
    Pterosimius sphinx, commonly just called the Sphinx, is the largest pterosimian. It's a powerful glider, but also the only pterosimian to regularly venture to the forest floor. Pterosimius gracilis, the Golden Dovetail pterosimian, is the fastest and most agile of the pterosimians, and the most completely adapted for a life of flight. Dermadactylus mariposa, the Green Mariposa (Spanish for butterfly), is the smallest pterosimian, with the largest wing membrane, proportionally to body size. It eats mostly nectar and fruit. The Aborigen, which is distantly related to the pterosimians, is able to use tools and language, and has a technology level similar to Amazonian tribes on Earth. The borer bug is not really an arthropod, nor is it a really a mammal; it is a member of a separate class (or subclass, the classification is uncertain) of six-legged, four-eyed, furry, toothy-mouthed creatures, most of which live in tree wood or underground. The fantiger is the main predator of the arbolisimo (giant tree) ecosystem. Its body is wide and flat, to better grip and climb tree bark. The little flat-faced guy with the long tail is something like an alien kinkajou. I couldn't think of a name for him.

    Hey new SSG friend! Your animal designs are SUPER-HOTT! I especially love the HippoCroc and the little lemur-esque thing on the base of the last update.

    I've having a hard time trying to think of anything to crit Maybe you could combine your love of designing animals and your architectural/mechanical anxietys by drawing insectoid ships or buildings?

    Katfayheirti- Thanks, fellow sketchgroupie! Hotness increases exponentially with each "t" at the end, I assume. Good idea with the insectiod ships and buildings. I am making a little progress in the architectural front; I recently sketched some pillars and such that I liked. I also drew the first ever rock that I was really happy with. Rocks are hard; so many planes! Anyway, thanks again.
    Nothing form me right now. Pretty much my whole family is over this weekend, so not a lot of art time for me.

    Hey there! Nice update! I have to say the drawing that really caught my eye is that of the completed creature near the top right (whats its name again?). I can really imagine its behaviour, attitude. I think when you are able to portray its natural behaviour in the most correct way, thats when the creature comes to life. I must say I'm really impressed by your knowledge of nature and its wildlife. Well done!
