Great stuff, love the triceratop. Looking forward to seeing more..
that mech work is tight, although the guns come off as plastic and non-threatening.
creature designs are nicely rendered and creative, looking foward to more work!
Wow! Really great stuff you have here!
I agree, the triceratop is really well done.
And the amount of detail you put into the building is phenominal! I would like to see that finished.
I can't believe you are only 20!
Keep it coming!

hehe, i have a feeling your not going to get many critiques here aye . i'll try my darndest a little later one, but you can also post things in the critique centre if you want critiques real bad for a piece.
You have some really nice studies and sketches mate.
Hey Don-Key Ya flatter me wicho words. Thanks for your visit to my SB.
Aaahhh, those pencil critters are beautiful. So much life and your characters have alot of attitude. Really rich technique and your work has a distinctness. Nice to see your sketches, excellent start. Glad you threw up a SB. Want to see more of those pencil mentals.

Cool stuff, I like the energy of your pencils!
Keep it up, cheers
hey man great updates! the horses sense of movement are great. i think maybe the shoulder on the top one looks a little small? like there could be more mass above the front leg if you know what i mean?.... FILL THAT PAGE WITH HORSIES!!!
the bounce light on the last bust is really nice, his lesser finished eye makes him look a little crosseyed, but all other anatomy/proportions look great. i really need to watch you do a drawing from start to finish one time because there is a point in there were it just transforms through all that erasing.... and looks really cool! in the scan it looks like its been done with a really thick pencil or something to start with and then refined with tiny little hatch marks??? thats not what you did if i recall
the last ones really really cool, keep going with that page! i haven't seen much stuff like this from you before and it looks promising, all from head? i like the dude on the right the most, hes the most unique, his armor is like a cross between samurai and english! (i think the eye slit is higher than his eyes would be.. but it actually looks cooler where it is i think?
anyway man, sorry to hear about the crazy work load, but it'll all be worth it when your strolling around NY city!
kronos - thanks for the tips man, the horse was from memory so its
garunteed to be wrong. and yeah the 3rd page is all from the head
ummm...JERI - to finaly answer your question, it was probably 2-3 hours spent dribbling that building.
GriNGoLoCo - thanks dude, nah no illustration major, my major is character animaton, mostly with MAYA..
YOU ARE ALL FAR TO NICE TO ME!!! thanks guys, im like a broken record huh?
heres some scrap from the head...
In the pencils with the wizard, on far right is a character with a helmet: Those pencil strokes really attracted me. You put much life in those lines. The same with the horses. Can feel your choices in line direction and weight. Beautiful. You have such a nice sensitive style to your rendering.
Creature drawing above is very cool.
Aztc - thanks a bunch for the feedback, i feel really crap aboyt my drawing at the moment, i wanna go in a new direction...
i got annoyed with thinking so started to draw and this came out
Nothing wrong with it. Still has that force of energy that I find so powerful in your stuff. Maybe just need to tap into a different emotional vein.
Listen to your friend below. POST MORE!

next time i see you i'm gunna smack you with a big ol fish of self loving ego improventnesssss! what the hell are you on about! i can understand being frustrated about a drawing maybe not turning out how you invision them or whatever, but they are all still fuckin cool... so quit your yappin and draw!
(about the last one the pose is really cool, but the wings aren't in the same place, as in symmetrically, ones on the side ones on the top if you know what i mean)
