    Haunting but interesting. Seems though that you have grown accustomed to one way only of drawing faces, so inevitably they look all the same. But nevermind that, good stuff.

    I agree with Evildisco about the faces, especially in anything prior to post #9 - it more or less looks like the same haunted man over and over again ~ that said I really like everything from post #9 and forward, if it's a speedy evolution, or just that your subject matter changed I'm not sure. For while earlier I found your shading top notch, but your anatomy troublesome, at least if it was meant to portray different types of people/characters - then comers the rabbit of #9, the bug man of #10 and the monstrosities of 12# and #15, and changed all that, and I really like em.

    This is a very fascinating sketchbook. Your pencil work and cross-hatching is very topnotch. Real nice work! Not too bad on the digi pieces but they are coming off as alittle flat. Think more about your lighting first and form. If you jump into the colors head first it will mess you up. I've done it far too many times speaking myself. If your working in photoshop you might like this thread- http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=47859

    By the way, are you a fan of elephant man? Those two last pieces got me thinking of him.

    Nice progression in your worx. Maybe try some hand studies. Most of the hand you draw seem to be kinda chubby and unproportional. The toadman sketch is cool. Cant wait to see more of your daily's.

    Ex Nihilo-Thanks.

    Envisor-Point taken on the hands, they are a bit broad and generic. Hand studies tonight. Thanks.

    Did anyone ever tell you that you have a very morbid and spooky way of drawing people?

    I LOVE IT

    Hey there, thanks for checking out my work. I'm always amazed what you stumble upon when you browse this forum, your sketches have a very unique flavor, quite different from what most of the other people here do. I like it a lot, very cool. Good to see you're trying to keep this daily, but don't fall into the trap of drawing just for having something to post. If an idea or new technique takes more than a day to develop, take the time. And then post it as soon as possible, 'cause I wanna see it...

    taxman- thanks for the kind words. Your comment about drawing to have something to post has got me thinking.

    A few of my last posts have been further away from what I would consider my personal work or personal projects. I'm trying to push my more illustrative skills and do more work in the concept mode, though I hate to say they are separate areas because I don't think that's quite the situation... In any case I'm not too pleased with some of my recent posts, but I think it is helpful in figuring out which mistakes I'm repeating, what needs the most work, etc. Seeing my weaknesses makes me more determined to correct them and work harder. I want to make interesting, well crafted pictures, no matter what the subject, etc. I'm far from that goal and my tools for getting there at this point are limited (I'm weak with color and have zero skill with digital painting, not much more with traditional means). What I'm trying to say is that I intend to use this sketchbook to stumble through and get lost in exploring things, and frankly there's going to be duds, works that I'm not proud of, there already have been. But putting it out there makes me study my own errors more than tossing it in the bin would. I'm hoping over the next few months with the help of this forum I will be able to grow a great deal, and maybe I can help out a few people in the process or give them something fresh to look at.

    Now for the visuals. This was a little sort of relief sculpting foray I started, a lot of mistakes and things I would do differently next time, but I certainly learned a lot.

    Wow, you're rendering is very smooth on your pencil pieces. Is it just a lot of small crosshatching, a bunch of light crosshatching, side of pencil, what?

    I can't give you any critique on the gut harvester entry, because I'm not great at that kind of stuff either...All I know is just make sure it's clean. *shrugs*
    I'm useless

    Letting this one go unfinished, the biggest issue I notice with it is a lack of contrast... next one I will start with black and white and get my values in I think.

    drd- it's small and light crosshatching, all mechanical pencil so its all gradation of lines or marks.

    digital scribble. 15 minutes in painter- neat program, don't really have much idea on how to use it yet...

    Ninetales- thanks, I'll be sure to stop by your sketchbook later.

    Trying to get more aquainted to working with photoshop... being relatively new to working digitally and with full color I think I need to split up the struggle into a couple different battles at least... here's a value study, about 20 minutes or so, shown here at 50% original working size.

    Oh and as per usual, no ref.
