Great sketchbook. The bust of the half skull face really struck me. I love it! I also like the pencils of the portraits also. keep working with the digital paintings, but try to keep the same mood as your pencil sketches. oh, and post more!
Buenos dias! DanielC
Niiice new sketchbook! I'm still enjoying these pencils and loving your comp designs. Sweet skeleton and skull render. Excellent. Thanks for the kind comments in my SB.
To answer about materials: I use smooth cheapie newsprint and charcoal pencils; pencil of choice is Ritmo_Art Alternatives. Because newsprint is so non-archival, I must learn to handle more textured paper and alter technique a bit.
I first studied under Glen Orbik http://www.orbikart.com/ and Mark Westermoe. Glen was Jeff's teacher at one time, so there is a connected history of style.

exams are no excuse Daniel. Your drawings come first. End of story.
Great updates man, don't know why you resort to calling your stuff poop.
It makes me feel so much worse about myself.
Solid stuff, I like the fat guy's face, well drawn, distinctive and convincing.
Second piece is supa great, composition seems to be working in your favour.
EDIT - ha right now our post counts are equal. I've caught up, mwuahahahahaa!
Really intriguing work, my friend. I will be keeping an eye on your progress. My only comment would be to make sure your pencils are always sharp, sharp, sharp... Some posts have some rather flat looking lines. Other than that, great stuff.
