For some reason I can't motivate myself to make art unless I feel I have some kind of obligation. So I figured sketchbook = good idea. Any and all crits are welcome because I have a lot(!) of room for improvement.
The first is something I made for the 2d Fighter Challenge a while back. Of course, I didn't finish on time. The next two are some recent sketches that I plan on turnin' into bigger paintings...
I think this sketchbook is working. I feel guilty about not making art already! I'll get around to scanning some of my acrylic stuff...

Bald Muffin, Goblinshark, Kuroart, DesignBoot, thanks. I will prob scan pencil sketches soon. ITM, here's a few quick gestures for the 200 Gesture TD.
Go sign yourself up if you haven't. You even get a nifty icon if you puss out.
Only 190 to go! ... -_-;
Well so far so good. If there was one thing I didn't like about your paintings, is that they are on a white background. Especially like the one on the right.
great art in here...im diggin teh faces...keep it up

Wakkawa- you're right, the white makes stuff look unfinished. I'll try and fix that one pic up.
Omega Red- thanks
The gestures below are the only ones I ended up turning in for the 200 gestures TD... I probably had about 200, but I think some of them were so horrifying I just couldn't show them. A couple quickie skulls too...
Edit: Ah, I see I have my losatar already! How... beautiful. o_0
Gestures for the new gesturedome.
Them chix look very good. The animal sketches are great, much respect here cause i find animals very hard subject to draw.

darkos, inkr, listing, thanks for your comments.
Had a very long bout of bronchitis and a trip overseas, but that doesn't make up for my slack. I'm starting to get real pissed at my lack of artistic skill, so I've been doing lots of ugly practice paintings... I think it's helping, because this self portrait was a definite improvement on stuff I've done in the past... Although it's definitely lacking... ugh.
Aaannnd a chun li doodle just because. -_-

I'm starting to paint over some of the sketches I did while I was in China... fun stuff.
Great studies. You seem very comfortable with your tablet. Keep up the good work.
Your animal gestures are spectacular..really good feel for the form. Soem of your people life drawings feel stiff, to much liek you are considering the line more than the form. Keep up the posting and those pregress shots like the last painting..nice work!!
Daraf, Idiot Apathy, thanks!
Silvestri, you are totally right about the stiffness of my figures, I have to start thinking more 3D.

Great stuff in here. Awesome sketches. Keep going
You'r lines are good and I like the girl poses, but some of them might look a bit static. You should try to break free and get more life into them, I recommend taking a look at Vilppu's gesture drawing lessons. The way he describes how you have to "feel the flow" through the models was of great help for me.
Thank you to everyone who commented!
Am7 - yeah, I've been planning on getting ahold of some of Vilppu's books for a while now, thanks for the advice.
Replaced the Ingres drawing with a newer, improved one and started another copy for the OFDW thread... just blockin in stuff for now.
Self portrait of me makin' a snooty face. :| Anddd I messed around with my blondie pic a bit more. Now it's laydown time cos I'm feelin' a bit under the weather.
