Here's an update, gang.
Thanks for all the comments.
I started drawing real big here...spreading onto two pages, doing full page drawings, it's kind of unusual. It's just smearing my imagination all over my sketchbook, pretty much.
Anime? Yeah... came out of nowhere...but I thought I might post it. I find it easier to get back into digital painting if i'm not dealing with the complexities of a realistic human face. Anime is kinda cheating, yes, but I can still try.
And this is a pic from an oc with PaperX . Ahh the good times. We were both kind of working on the new TeenChallenge "Gothic Angel." Which...I don't think I'll be able to complete. Oh well. At least I tried this time. That's a step forward.
shit! kickass updates man, i can really see the ian mccaig awesome-ness coming through in your work that anime girl isn't cheating....its beautiful!!! just one little problem i mentioned to you before though, her left (our right) eye is a bit high up, i did a not that great quick fix for you using the liquify tool (who's cheating now? ) always remember to do some page flipping to check for errors like this
PS: you forgot to mention that your piece is the right one in the oC , aka the awesome one
sup bro....who says anime is cheating...your piece is a beauty. Keep doing what your doing and never take what you have for granted. Spend every moment you have improving yourself and work hard towards your dreams.
im so glad you posted the anime girl. im also glad she doesnt have fat arms!
anyways, yeah, im just glad to see you putting painting back in your sb. i hope you find time to do more soon.
paperX: Aww man, you flatter me. Well I wanted to slowly get back into digi painting again and anime was a fun and easy way to do that. Hahaha, indeed, the liquify tool would do that. I actually just recently made the page flipping a shortcut on my tablet! I'll keep it in mind!
mc2mc2: Whoa, it's good to see you again! Definitely the same to you my friend, I hope you can get in drawing time in more these days. I really respect you for the sacrifices you're making. Thanks for the comment.
updown: Yes, I made some good fixes to that, even though I didn't want to, I did anyways. Thank you for your critiques during the making of.
Here are my recent sketches. A lot of these are from the national portfolio day. Things I sketched while waiting for the Kansas City Art Institute and stuff...long time waiting.
If anybody is a Decemberist fan, this is Eli the Barrow Boy.
This is an oc that I had with my good oc buddy, PaperX . He's helped get me off my lazy butt recently with these oc's, so thanks, man. He's got the ridiculously evil looking monster on the left, I'm just drawing chicks again. -_- Laame.
And finally, I saw in the Challenge Arena the Art Battle Royale topic and thought I'd conceptualize a battle axe character to wage bloody war on the other drawings in the thread. It sounded like fun. I'm still working on it...
Thanks for commenting guys, anything you can critique helps.

I did a quick run through all of your uploaded images, and I can say that I'm impressed, especially considering this is the first sketchbook I've seen on the site.
Your sketches are an encouragement to me and others, so please keep updating! c:
dammit man, have i told u how much i like the way u draw girls? well yeah i do ALOT also i just realised you make the eyes really emotional and beautiful maybe its cuz im listening to a sad song atm lol but they're really great! keep drawing man, we need to have another oC soon!
Well it's been a long time since I've updated...here's some of my traditional sb stuff...
I'm decently pleased with most of these things...the paper color change is because I started a new sketchbook. The paper has less tooth, I kind of like it.
wahay Hey thanks a bunch! I appreciate the comment and hope you stick around. CA is a great environment.
paperX Well hey, thanks for the comment, man. I appreciate the compliments, any critiques? We've gotta have an OC again real soon.
Oh guys, by the way, thanks a TON for the 4 stars. I dunno how that happened, but it's pretty cool. It took me forever to notice oddly enough, haha.
I'm going to paint. I spent like the past three nights listening to Bobby Chiu podcasts while having some real productive drawing time, last night I started on this.
I really need to learn this painting stuff, I feel like I'm falling behind really fast. Any advice about how to improve on this would be great. For now, just wip-ing. Right now the colors are really subdued and I have a limited palette. Is this a good approach? I think I'll want more color later and I'll throw in some powerful reds and things. We'll see. I will just do my best to finish.
I feel the same way about needing to learn how to paint. Though you are far ahead of me in that aspect as well as anatomy xD Still, I love your work and wish you much luck on furthering your digital painting skills.
It's been a while since I posted, so here's the last thing I drew/painted. uh...things have been busy with school and whatnot, but I have not stopped painting/drawing, I'm just painting/drawing in non-scannable medium, I guess. Here's some stuff.
Thanks to PaperX for sharing his time with me and having some oc sessions with me.
These first two are oc's with PaperX, he's on left, I'm on right. Great times.
This was a quick oc sketch that I did and didn't finish.
Ms. Kitty: Thanks for commenting, I appreciate the kind words!
dammit i dont understand why so little people comment in your sb, you art is awesome whatcha up to these days? haven't managed to catch ya online for ages....hope everything's going well for ya!
