    That's a really nice piece! It has a brooding sense of atmosphere about it and some of your mark-making on the creature's hide is very satisfying. I remember seeing your stuff a while ago - you've come on in leaps and bounds lately. I look forward to seeing more in your sb. Keep it up!

    Ta, Nick.

    Hello everyone - MASSIVE UPDATE!!! 30/04/07

    I've decided to start my sketchbook properly, i'm in for an intense year what with leaving my job in july to concentrate full time on art for a few months, so to help that i'll be doing this sketchbook and updating as much as i produce art!

    I only get about 3-4 hours in per day. And i'm open to all crit and suggestions ! be brutal with me!!! I must learn.

    i'll post my weekly CHOWs as well as all the practice work i do in the week, lunchbreaks and outside work.

    hope you enjoy!!

    Some rough practices (some ref, mostly from memory though)

    Nice work! Do you feel more comfortable sketching with pencil or tablet?

    Well, i find it a lot easier with pencil and paper - and i've found it takes some time to actually get tablet work up to the same standard as pencil work. But i need more practice in the digital realm!!!

    I feel more comfortable now than i did a year ago when i started out with concepts!

    Very nice on the ice druid. The background has a sort of "Fortress of Solitude" feel. His face is good too - it's got a lot of mood and character, despite not being fully visible. I'm trying to think of a good crit to come up with, but am drawing a blank.

    Take a look at my series of in-depth critiques, like this one of Salvador Dali's hidden portrait of Lincoln.

    Scott's Sketchbook: Check out my sketchbook. Will swap C&Cs.

    your portraits and painting skills are pretty sweet. you have a handle on figures and anatomy.. but occasionally they seem to come out a bit stiff.
    try doing some crazy stylized flowing gestures. i think that will loosen up the look of them a bit. in fact, try doing a few each time before you start drawing, to loosen up your arm a bit.
    nice work. (especially some of the chows.. the navigator, mr. hyde, and red riding hood are all awesome)

    just a couple of re-painted updates from my old work. Quite fun to re-do elements and try out new things with these. Also to see if my improvements in my recent pieces can effect these ones! Hope they have! Crit is always welcome!
