    Long time no post, been having some computer issues which means that I couldnt get as much as I would have liked done - nonetheless I've been practicing every day and hopefully it's making me better.
    Only a couple of pics again, because I'm very much in a state of trying to find myself artistically and so i scrap a lot of doodles and practices happy in having learnt something from them - a bad habit I'm sure.

    Deadred- Hey thanks, I've been hitting the anatomy books and trying to sort it out - I know it's a weakness at the moment

    Bunny - Thanks a lot for stopping by, your post made me really think about how I work. There has always been something I hated about my painting style, and I'm pretty sure it's the soft/ultra blended to death thing I seem to do. The fact that someone else pointed out it doesn't look satisfactory really made me get off my arse and go find another way of working - so thanks loads

    Did these 2 a few minutes ago (before I go to bed) and decided I may as well sketchbook 'em. Probably a lot more to come from me some time soon

    Another before bed quicky, put a bit more love into this one than the previous two, about two hours as opposed to half an hour. Hope people enjoy this one, i kinda like it.

    hey man, it's only right that i return the gesture of solidarity

    i dig the Lost sketches... you know, that would make some pretty good practice for likeness/value studies if you did some portraits of characters from the show. and more to the point, it's an easy pass to a certain greater amount of attention

    keep sketching and keep posting!

    Hey Gauss, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook I appreciate it

    I painted myself a spiderman yesterday, having enjoyed the movie - plus he's always fun to draw. I've applied a lot of the anatomy stuff I've been learning lately to it so hopefully that shows.
    Also saw a picture of a woman with a cute little potbelly and did a little speedie of it.
    Lastly something different in the form of the invisible man.

    Cheers for stopping by Jmarkus, sucks not having thumbs ey?
    Sculpted out one of those little amphibians I sketched in a previous post, Zbrush3 came out today and I've been playing with it all day (and love it by the way)instead of scanning drawings or creating new ones. Update tomorrow with my 2D goings on.
    Amphibians come in two flavours, clay or licorice

    Sculpting with Zbrush has taken over my life! I'm back to drawing and painting now finally, so I painted a suicidegirl for a couple of hours to get me warmed up today. Hopefully today is gonna be super productive

    Gnoll - Cheers for stopping by again man, your posts are much appreciated. I love using the brush to ink, a few more coming up in this post.

    Atlantik, Robz - Thanks guys! Hope you come back for more soon.

    Turns out drawing is one of the more dangerous hobbies. I got massive eye strain (think eyes pouring tears when focusing on far away objects and vision like opening your eyes in the pool) and also woke up one day with my middle finger (the one i put all the pencil pressure on) in agony and virtually unable to move!
    So i've had to lay off drawing/tablet/using a fork like a human being these past couple of weeks, which was totally frustrating.
    Eased back into things though, let me know what you think.

    Here's a warmup silly sketch before attempting anything proper. Used some photo ref.

    Clodioz - Yeah that is Hiro Nakamura! Surprised you got that, the likeness is awful!
    Kovah - Hey thanks, glad you likes.

    Love your painting style and the variety of stuff you cover in here. I have a friend you loves Z-brush as well and keeps trying to get me started on it. Problem is there is no time! Anyways, I think my favorite aspect of what you do is your color palette and your choices. Nice work!

    Thanks for commenting in my sketchbook! Your work has motivated me to try a one of the CHOW challenges. They look fun.

    Today's warmup. Not too pleased with it, but I definately need to work on my environment drawings so I pushed through.Photo ref of Machu Pichu used, though it probably doesn't show .
    Blaz - Thanks! I don't if inspiring is the right word though!
    Eurayo - No worries, glad you stopped by here too. Chow is definately fun, go for it
