    Syrs. Nice to meet you. You know, I live around the Chicago area and I wanted to know your opinion about the Institute and Chicago in general. How are both of them? Expensive? I hear some bad things about the Art Institute, though I've looked into attending it.

    I like your works a lot, except that some could be polished a little more (#1, 2, 3, and the last one) other than that, I like them.

    Well, I'm a first year so I only get one elective. So far my professors are pretty cool, although I have one course that really lacks. The school is pretty pricey, but it's pretty unique living in the big city and the dorms are amazing.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I was wondering, are all of these done from scratch in Photoshop? I.e. total digital paintings? Your work is exciting and vibrant, and it's really quite impressive considering you're 19, but i do get the feeling that all of these wizzy Photoshop effects are the kind of thing you could do with your hands behind your back.

    I'm much more interested in seeing some of your actual sketches - i think showing us these kinds of 'finished products' defeats the object of having a sketchbook thread.

    These are really nice pieces, without a doubt, but i think you'll get much more out of posting your initial sketches for people to talk to you about than just the fruits of your labour. I doubt you'll be wanting to go back to any of these, which means that anything people suggest for improvement are just moot points.

    I checked out your site, by the way - there's plenty of great stuff on there

    Jokisalo: Thanks

    Ragdoll Revolution: Yes, the images above were created using Photoshop's brush tool and a Wacom Intuos 3. I'll rough out ideas from time to time in pencil, but that's really as far as I went traditionally with those illustrations.


    Some sketches I did this morning:

    Some sketches done at the cafe this morning. One being a tattoo concept for the gf, which involves an "old-fashioned boxing-glove-wearing scuba diver" punching a shark.

    Those sketches are really nice - the boxing glove scuba diver idea is pretty sweet lol (although i think it needs a little more work - the shark isn't placed at an angle where it would really feel much of a blow, and the diver doesn't look like he's throwing any kind of weight into the punch).

    Again, i think you'll get a lot out of people just talking about your sketches. You have a really nice, loose technique already and i think it's the sort of thing that improves fairly quickly.

    The first set of sketches you posted look really similar to my own style - i'm wondering what your big influences are, man? Be interesting to compare lol.

    P.S. LOVE where you're going with that organic-looking motorbike lol.

    wow awesome stuff! I really like your CGing. You got good sense for color. Altough watch out with the propertions of the faces, they seem unsymetrical, try some face studies, keep it up!
