Looking at your sketches is like a free private lesson from a flying super-master!
Such an unusual shading style in some of those live figure drawings but you really make it work. Wicked Sketchbook!
Your rendering techniques are remarkable! I went from the first page to the last and your skill set seems to have evolved beautifully.
Your linear drawings are of great inspiration to me.
The way you define shadows just by the thickness of the lines. Really learned alot from your artwork.
Patience is a virtue, but who wants to be virtuous?
I absolutely love your self portraits, sensitive. And the digital practice from stills are beyond cool. Lovely skulls. Your skill is massive. I envy your place right now in school. Having the goals motivates the studies. Get as much of it as you can. Your talent is a category 5 storm. No stopping it.

Very beautifull book. Love everything and am especially drawn to your character work. I'm eyeing the animation field and feel like I'm learning for coming here both in content and presentation. Hope you don't mind that I saved some of your layouts. Great Stuff. Good Luck in '09.
PROPS on those figures, I have seen so many trained eyes draw beautiful figures, but these studies brought something new to my eyes. My virgin eyes!
Seriously amazing stuff.
Wow. I'm speechless.
i love this SB! i love your style! i love it all!
woah... impressive, must take a lot of hard work to reach that level.
fuck indeed !!!
Ah, geez. I came here off ccsears' praise of your pen sketches, and I find a bunch of amazing paintings. Ha!
I really appreciate your brushwork. Super super stuff.
EDIT: I went back and looked at some of your sketches. You don't happen to study at the AAU in San Francisco, do you? Or in that area somewhere? I thought I recognized some of the models from Henry Yan/Zhaoming Wu/Kevin Chen's figure work.

Nice sketchbook you got here. loving youre sketchy technique keep on posting
wow man wow
im guessing those sketchbook pages are pencil, but they look kinda like pen?
anyways, nice studies, the "tilting the book to draw them from different angles" sounds like a good idea.

Eon: Thanks! I don't know if it's and unusual shading
style. Sergio Toppi and early Berni Wrightson stuff
have that shading going on. People always ask if I'm
influenced by them, and sadly I have to say no. I think
it stemmed from just doodling different textures. If I
had seen their stuff earlier, I'd probably be a better
