thanks aztcfireflower! i'm trying to put that one in my portfolio. (along with some studies of him.)
i actually found my old sketchbook again too. i think i posted that up a while back.. uhh.. i think.
for a long time now, i've been working on photoshop. i really like the old one better, like ps 7? but i've been playing with cs2 recently. i tried painter a long time ago but it wasn't my thing then.. i might try it out later on tho since ryan church is using it too.
really nice stuff here man, clean line work, and the bull sketch/paint is pretty freakin awesome, but my only crit about it is when you changed the arms you messed up, because the first makes look like he is turning a sharp corner. But the second looks like he about to back hand something, i dont know i think it looked better before you switched the arms. Thats all hope that helps you.

thanks Boom!, currently i don't know what my style is.. if there is any. i'll try to stay close to anatomy too.. i haven't done that in a while.
Envisor, thanks for the comment! i try to make my characters jump out of the paper sometimes. i've noticed that there's more shapes and linking stuff that i have to deal with in order to pull that off.
Kingshaj, you're too kind.
Ermac, i know i know... i think i'll change it back and try to make the arms work. the issue before was kinda trashed because the whole arm didn't fit on the paper. i think i'll try to extend the paper to make it fit and add some more pressure to that turn.
you know, as i'm reading all of your crits, it makes me want to draw and get some good pieces out! unfortunately, i can't right now because i'm still at work. also, it's so hard for me to get started at home since i get so tired after traffic and all at night. i just don't know how those other guys do it. do they have a MAD drive of creativity inside them that pushes them so hard?! pld: i think i really need that right now.
i gotta put away my psp, ps2, and warcraft and start cranking out some art!
Hey man, this is some nice work here. I love your pencil sketches that you took photos of. A nice scanner would come in handy and is more than worth the price, I would recommend it. Other than that I would really like to see more color work. It seems you have a good eye for that though not much is represented here. I can't wait to see more of your work. Keep it up!
Your characters pack a good deal of personality. I'm not sure if this was already mentioned, but at the moment I reckon you can do more head/face practices as I think your head proportions in particular can use more consistency.
Looking forward to updates on that adorable bull .
