A plain background sketch to work on my furniture skills, again using PITT artist pens.
And some fun with conte crayons. I really fucked up his foot, hence the stragetically placed grass. As a side effect, there will probably be lots of foot sketches in the near future.

Hey Skunkitorium, you have some cool sketches here!! It's great to see you working on anatomy. Doing more life studies will make you a better artist. Don't worry about posting bad stuff. You get better by learning from your mistakes and continuing to draw. Hope this help bro. Lookin forward to see your progress!!

Testing out the qualities of an Stanford ebony pencil. I'm pleased with the results; it has a tendency to show every stroke, but it also gives a nice, deep value that I'll definitely use in future drawings. I used a photo of Samoth taken during the Emperor reunion tour for reference.
And a 90-minute still life drawn in ink.

Fantasyartist, thanks! I went through a six-month period of not even touching my paints and brushes, and now I'm trying to scrape the rust off.
A simple linework to experiment with the thickness of lines to create depth.

Ummm.... I think I'll have cake.
Nice progress btw. That male nude with the snake is a wicked concept, I love it. The still-life ink drawing I can't for the life of me make out what it's supposed to be, but it looks nice visually.
I love how you experiment wildly with different media... Nice going, keep it up!

Mish mash of media and subjects; I really should curb my spastic tendencies.
I totally messed up on the perspective of the bricks, and the urns and ground need more value.
Practice with a Tombow pen.
Referenced from an artist's anatomy book.

Trying to update this sucker daily...really need to practice more.
Panda for a watercolor class. Instructor gave us tracings for the bear; we could choose our own palette. Unhappy with a number of things for this piece, and I plan to paint a second version soon.

All watercolors were used with a photo reference.
Colors of the fur got way too muddy for my liking. I'll have to do a third try.
Sketches. Poses were referenced from Civardi's Drawing The Human Body or from a fashion magazine.
I may turn this one into something more finished, but I need to mess with it more. I like the figures, but I may reposition the man. And the background definitely needs a more exciting perspective.

Hey Skunk, nice studies here, I don't know if you agree but I see you getting progressivly looser with your sketches which is great! Keep up the interesting poses!

Thanks, man! Yeah, I've been trying to get looser...helps me focus on the overall picture instead of zeroing in on the details.
Sketches while watching the Mayweather vs. Hatton match on TV.
Legs pose referenced from Civardi's Drawing The Human Body.
Gridding practice of Gerard Butler. Photo used for reference.
Watercolor, with the same photo. Several things I'm not happy about (especially that undersized left eye; d'oh).
