    Welcome to CA. Great pics thus far. The only critique that I have is to do some life drawing, figure studies, and anatomy studies. Trust me, thy will definitley help you to push your art to the next level. Keep posting.

    My Sketchbook- C&C very welcome

    Here's a couple of colour pics i did last week, my first outing with photoshop and artrage. the first one is not finished and needs her arm and wings redoing i reckon. the second one was done totally on the computer and to be honest looked awful until i played around with some filters in photoshop, now it's at least just about bearable to look at

    Touche, I can also see your sketch book is also going to be interesting to watch as well, can't wait for you to go through some anatomical training and redo you first pic. I'll tell you what, I've been drawing since christams and I don't think I would've come as far as I have if I had not been reading practicing and studying, looking at other sketchbooks, reading the solid advice given.

    At first I wanted to draw, now I want to be an artist as well, I love the last picture, and wow, you can do stuff like that in photoshop, so cool. Well, hope you had a great weekend.

    looking forward to seeing morew good and even greater work

    The first thing that popped into my head is that your bodies can use more consistency. Keep studying and keep posting mate.

    Geldslaw-don't worry, that first pic is top of the list for re-working
    Envisor- Thanks! i'm glad you liked the last posts, i'm getting to grips with photoshop slowly so more colour work should be forthcoming.
    Jeri-i think i know what you mean, it's something i'm hopefully gonna rectify soon, i'm currently going through a book by Giovanni Civardi called Drawing human anatomy, a few runs through this should at the very least get me on the right track.
    i'll be posting the work as i go through the book, so keep your eyes peeled guys!!

    what book is that, I love the impression each drawing gives, good stuff. It's inspiring to see you producing good work. I'm working through a couple of books at the moment, not because it sounds clever but because each one covers what I need in different ways.

    There are no shortcuts but some authors are better at explaining some particular subjects better than others. I'm looking at Loomis - figure drawing for what its worth and Hogarth anatomy in motion I think, and Giovanni Civardi from whom I'm just about done with the basic stage of head studies.

    I'll say this, doing anatomical studies is as important as building a house on solid ground, anything else is like building on quicksand. For me that is, I could appreciate all the great sketchbooks but I noticed a pattern with anyone who did anatomy their postings just got better and could see why but not appreciate it till I tried it myself.

    hope to see some more of your wonderful drawings, great start with the heads. I can say one thing about this site, its addictive and I come here to relax but then leave wantign to go and do more studies or drawings lol

    last one looks pretty good.ABout the digial experiments, get rid of PS filters, and stop usign them...they don't help imho.Try and use them in a subtle way, or as a support...if you have too.
    About the rest, it looks good, but as JERI said bodies ned consistency, and that will only come with study.USe the book only as a guide, don't copy immediateley but make sure you understand the underlying structure of stuff.
    Keep up the good work

    ciao

    ENVISOR-thanks man, i've had to redo the COW pic tho, did'nt really capture the scale of the beast.
    GNOLL-ok i'll try an calm down on the PS filters an thanks for stopping by my SB. as for the book studies, there's not alot of structure in the book i'm using so i reckon i might switch to the hogarth, much better from what i've heard.

    Hey man, been awhile, whats your new job. Must be hectic. I feel for ya man. Great updates. The comic looks good, but would like to see some studies of the character in pencil from all angles. Itll give you some good practice for the comic. The Dungeon Cleaner is pretty cool, kinda looks like a giant gerbil or a rabit.

    yeah it's very hectic, i work for a marketing company that specalises in the automotive sector. as for the comic , i've been sketching this guy in various guises for a few years now so i'll post some when i get the time to sit down an scan them in an crop 'em in ps. plus i'll do a shitload of new ones cos i don't tend to switch angles much!
    the dungeon cleaner was fun an the gerbil kinda look was what i was aiming for so thats cool, cos as we all know gerbils are all totally crazy
    cheers for stopping by dude!

    muckin about with light

    well i've finally managed to get another piece posted (well two, frontier cover is updated) it's another COW, it's the only thing i seem to get time for!
    started havin a play around with lighting on this one, it seems to have worked ok but i think the shadows could do with some work.

    Nice doggy cherryworx. And the comic sktech is a nice looking piece. But I agree with the doggy being your best piece, best photoshop piece I mean. Keep it up. And hope the job is going well.

    i love it when a plan comes together!

    ok, this is the new plan, gonna put on a weeks worth of sketches at the end of each week (unless i feel it's really really cool, in which case i'll update as soon as i get a chance!) an i'll keep updating them as i paint them in PS. So any sketches you see one week, chances are if you keep checkin back they'll get better an better! (unless i get bored with them) this also includes the previous posts too. this weeks sketches are quite rough an some had to be scanned as 2 halves due to their size(this didn't go to well on some of them, you'll notice quick PS touch ups here an there, hehehe)

    Enjoy!

    damn! forgot some!

    whoops i forgot some, not particulary good, an i've noticed my fascination with covering faces with hats. it's really for mood but it really does look like i'm trying to avoid drawing faces (if i say it enough i might believe it myself!)

    Hey man, doing good on the Frontier project. Nice sketches, but you seem to put more effort into your weapon designs than designing the characters, I mean your lines are more clean.

    i come from an engineering background,(i was an apprentice engineer for a car company a few years back) so it's really just habit trying to make something look like it could work, i'm trying to apply the same level of concentration to my characters but as you can tell it's not going well!
