I told ya man, I'd hire you.
Anyway- finally found your sketchbook. It's not like I'm particularly good at this or anything, but I'd definitely try to remember to start with your light and dark, remembering not to do ANY in between until the time is right. It really helps you set up your value relationships and describe three dimensional forms in a believable way. Too many highlights flatten things.
See you tomorrow morning.
There's a lake over there. Paint it before it dries up!
Not a bad sketch book you have going here. As for advice, you need to do more studies of human anatomy.
Heyy, big 21. Bet you're gonna have a grand party, eh?
Stuff is looking nice, keep doing what you are doing. Main crit: watch the colors on your shadows, they're too black, making it look like you used the dodge and burn tool. Do some stuff from ref to get an idea on what to do. Cheers mate.
nice nice good to see you've been busy while I was away i like the step-by-step approach really lets people see the... well.... steps anyways congratson the b-day and i hope you have plenty more drawing-filled years ahead of you (mostly just because I want to see what you'll draw next...)
I feel that your life drawing is your weakness... and leads to better drawing from imagination, of course. I'm just saying... REALLY look at what you're drawing. There's so much more to your face than what you've shown. I'd almost argue, from our countless encounters and obnoxious conversations, that your self portrait is merely a shadow of what you really look like.
Think Albert. Always think Albert.
Get some Hogarth. No joke. I actually just did.
By the way- Danny has a new thread up in the finally finished section you should check out. It's beast.
Keep goin' man. Senior year is coming- I don't feel ready... you?
Have fun, but apply rules that make it make sense. On that last piece if you let some of those shapes overlap the noisy brush you used over the top it would add a lot of depth. Other advice, study your ass off and try to commit it to knoledge, because then when you feel like having fun, you have tools to make things happen more efficiently. Immidiate gratification is nice

Looks wedged in there... kind of like a hammock, maybe? Maybe make it a little smaller so it (the ship) fits better without that look.
As things get farther away from you they will get bluer. This is because the blue spectrum of light is the strongest, where as other colors are to weak to meet the eye. Google up some pictures of hills or landscapes and see what I meen. It will really help in things in pictures like the last post to have somthing in the background, far away, rendered in blue tones. You have good determination and update so frequent. That is really awesome, all it takes to get better at any thing is practice, practice, practice,.. *repeat for infinity* Your'e doing good man keep it up!

The wolf with the flaming eyes is good.
Generally your work is unrefined, there are some really good concepts which are falling flat because of the execution. Just try to do more studies, if you want me to try and show you what I'm talking about I can do a quick paintover of one of your works, just drop a line in my SB and lemme know.
