now that's a sketchbook! you have a grat sense of colour, light and form, especially if it comes to landscapes and simple shapes. you need to work more on human figure and animals tho. the viking looks flat and undefined for example. try to draw a whole figure and realize its volume before you "dress" the chacacter.
i'd also like to see something polished from you. quickies are great and full of energy, but patience training is also important.
did i say that i'm in love with your use of light?

are u a nature lover
your work is great. it looks from your work that u live somewhere very close to nature. there is a great sense of lights in your work. u have been able to observe lights very carefully and have successfully brought it down on paper. good work. keep going. all the best.

You should try using shorter, softer strokes when drawing...

Keep up the good work you got going. When drawing from refferance constantly look at the reff and check the drawing. Draw what your eye sees and try to avoid too much time with you head staring strait at you paper while drawing.

I started at an art school recently, and I've been instructed to avoid outlines, just rendering out the form instead. So let's experiment! Draw something, at first without using any outlines. Just block in the whole object as a silhouette, lightly. Gradually refine the tone.

I think you should stick with your long, bold strokes, or better yet, try sketching more with pen only. You'll develop a more confident line, and get rid of those unsure, short strokes you'd see in an amateur piece.
you make me want to buy a skull and draw it.

Your speed painting styles are on point. You have a good sense of composition, which is probably the most important element of art.
All that technical stuff comes, right?
Now, maybe more humans and creatures?

Hello SSG mate, I like your digital enviros, and that one on #157 post, they're great.
You draw alot of skulls, I thought its still life, you have a skull in your room? Damn I want to get one of those, but I havnt seen nowhere to buy it.
About that last post of yours, I actualy saw only one pic, cuz others just take about 5 mins to open for me, something wrong with imageshack or with my internet, I dunno, please use that atachement.

Gyargh, I have taken in the crits and advice (thanks for the good comments as well) and I've been sketching, but I don't have my camera handy for the next 24 hours.
So here's a digi. I was thinking about how much fun it would be to be drving at high speed through a snowy forest in some sort of semi futureistic snowmobile.
And here we are

Aaaahhhhhh I haven't been on CA in aeons and now look at how much you're improving!
What's new? How are ya?
Also, those anatomy studies rock... I think we've been using the same book or something, because I did the same sort of studies a while back.
HEY LOOK AT DIS

its basically a compsitional study in black and white.
fairly abstract and so semetrical as to be rather dull
If you want to feature the snowmobile thingy, it needs some contrasts or detail or something. to make it stand out
