Hello to all, I have been lurking around here for quiet sometime. Looking at all the great sb's that are here, and I decided its time to start a sketchbook of my own. Most of the things I'll be posted have been done within the past 7 months to present. Hope you all like, any C&C are greatly appreciated.
Some old portraits that I did.
A self portrait of me ( the one in the hat )and my Fiancé
First page of my personal sketchbook.
That's it for now, will be updating this pretty frequently.

Thats it for now.. thanks for looking

Another update, Here are some more recent characters I did. I'll be posting some Life Studies, and anatomy stuff soon.
C&C always welcomed.

A random mix of some characters, and some anatomy stuff. I have been really trying to push myself with anatomy and started to do more stuff from life. Hope you like . C&C are welcomed.

i like your first post's work...keep trying some drawings like those.
looking pretty good. I think your drawings from life and references are probably the strongest. keep at that while you do your more creative drawings from your mind and you should progress really nicely with your monsters and things. keep them coming!
It's great that you're doing anatomy studies. Your first post is great, just keep doing those anatomy studies! You got potential
Zombie_dla: Thanks for all the kinds words.. keeps me motivated.
Chillijapones: Thanks as well, Yeah I have been trying to work on my anatomy and form more and hopefully will improve my own characters.
Here are some more studies, and some character concepts.

it looks like you have great imagination, a lot of your characters are really unique in terms of concept. however they lack the depth which your first portraits show very nicely. practice on your foundations and understanding of form/proportions in order to really bring those guys to life. already from your figure drawing you are improving. great work, keep it up.
I did these a few months back trying to learn digital painting. These are really some of the first digital painting I've done. The first one has alot of problems both painting wise and anatomy but I learned alot from it. The second one also has alot of problems esspically the background, not sure If I will go back to it or not. Still a good pratice I guess. The third one was actually the most recent one that I did in I think November or so. I used Photoshop for all of them. I'm currently working on some illustration's now, using painter this time, will post some progress images soon.

I really enjoy your studies. Keep working on improving your lighting and rendering techniques, and your creatures will improve as well. Great work.
Hey man! got some nice things going on! I like the diversity of creatures and approaches you make. I'd reccoment try working out the main shape first and then layer out the details. try putting some weight into them and you'll see how much life they gain from that.
Best of luck and keep going at it!! =)
Cgoz: thanks, yeah I've been focusing alot more on my anatomy as of late. I can see little by little the anatomy is improving. I look at is as a huge ladder, that pretty much never ends, always need to improve somewhere.
Topikal: thanks for the kind words, you need to start an sb man.... I' won't stop bugging you
Listing: thanks for looking, yeah you are right I need to focus more on life. As of late, I have made a switch with what to work on. I need to get out of my comfort zone of characters/creatures, its hard but I'm hopefully getting there.
ronaldK: thanks for the crit, I esspically need to think more about the weight of my characters.
OldNoobie: thanks for visiting my sb. I'll be updating soon of some anatomy work that I have been doing. I was thinking about getting a animal book recently to help with improving my animal anatomy, I should pick one up, Or maybe just go to the zoo all the time, give me an excuse to go somewhere.
Viramz: Thanks for visiting, yeah the anatomical studies surley help alot, you should deifintly give it a shot, if you haven't already.
Haven't updated in a month or so, figured its time for a big dump of stuff. Here is the first batch of random sketches Some old some new, probably should keep them more consisent to time, after this dump is all new stuff. C&C welcomed...

Here's another small update, figured I would just post some of my base sketches for some illustrations I'm working on. I aplogize don't have a scanner at the moment, so some of them are from a camera, might be a little blury. Thanks for looking.

Wow, I missed alot here! Great to se that your anatomy is improving. Just keep posting!
If u study the intricacies of the anatomical structure of anything u draw be it humans or insects or mutated things. U'll gain a much greater understanding of how to draw them, for instance, if u study indepth the muscle groups of human being or copy some good references for insect and possibly do some behemoth animal studies. U may get feel for concpetualising your own stuff sround those elements as u'd have ref'd from real lfe and then let your imagination run wild.
also blocking your image out in 3d shapes 1st will give your characters more of a solid appearance, give these things a go and see how u do. I can bet that u'll breed massive results. But still u have a made a really good effort on this book. I see big improvements coming!
Why do u stick your nose in other families business'. Come on dude don't u have any HOBBIES?
My sketchbook beckons, ave a look see?
it seems like you draw alot with your wrist ie not alot of long flowing lines try locking your wrist and using your whole arm to draw with it takes a while to get used to but you will be amazed once you get used to it
Hey, fellow sketchgroup member! Nice beginnings of a sketchbook you have here. You cover a pretty diverse range of subjects, which is good.
My two main pieces of advice for you right now are to study form and anatomy. I see you're already studying anatomy and your work is already improving, so keep that up. As for form, study the basic shapes of things, what they look like when they overlap, point in different directions, and recede into space. For example, the human arm can be simplified into a couple of cylinders, and the torso is kind of a box that can bend and twist. Once you know the muscles and how they move, you'll be golden.
Howdy Yautja! Glad to see all those anatomy studies, they will help a bunch! I see that you have no problem with coming up with you own ideas from all those creatures and monsters youdraw, which is great! Now it comes down to the technique: try to clean out your outline, and then start shading some. Itll add lots of form to your sketches. Also try to sketch an object under different lighting conditions, an soon you'll be proficient at shading anything. Keep at it!
Hey new SSG friend! 'Sweet SB you've got here! I really like your contours on that hand picture! If you want to branch out into studying form and value maybe it would help to think of things as basic shapes and planes. You could try setting up some still-lives with some basic shapes and a strong lightsource and drawing them. I know still-lives are boring, but they really help with understanding of value and shading. (plus they don't move or get angry with you for making them sit so long)
