Amazing graphic design ability, you have got style, I gotta say that. But at the same time, you also have a strong handle on realism which is a great combination to have. Really like the color usage, you are able to pick bright colors and make them vibrant, but they aren't obnoxious or clashing. I'll definitely be look more on this one!
Dave: haha thanks
n1va: thanks so much! i had the intention of cutting up that drawing and putting that fantastic tissue paper behind it before i even started it. thats really upsetting about the pandas, but its not gonna stop me from enjoying them from afar.
Leadster618: aw thank you so much! how nice of ya. please come back! hah.
amontilladoag: thanks for the loooove, dude.
Henchman 21: haha thanks dan
I've got more than this to upload that ill do later. the scanner at this house is pretty god awful. I managed to fix these ones:
cute thing for david:
Frankenstein tshirt design for my friends boss:
Portrait I did last night of this kid at the party I was at. I think this is pretty good considering I was drinking as I was drawing this.
ha, I love the flower eyed girl, and thanks for the cute drawing chelsea! good portrait too, youre getting better at life drawing and everything in general. one of my favorite things you do is mixing things up creatively like the flowers, wouldn't ever think to do that. Gooood stuff keeep goin chelsea!
Some felt buddies I've been sewing. The little blue dude on the right is a keychain on my backpack right now. Don't know what to do with the other ones just yet. working on some other ones too. they take awhile to do despite their small size, hand sewing's a bitch.
Here's the one I'm working on now. It's not done yet, still in pieces & she still needs mouth & nose.

Damn! Your portraits are so awesome! I have absolutely no idea if the likeness is spot on or not, but they sure look great. And of course, the animal studies are also great
Only critique I can think of now is about Frankenstein's monter's left eyebrow (our right). Its upper edge doesn't show the relief you've shown on the forhead above.
It's great to see the progress with each post! Keep at it!
Have fun now
DARAF: I would love to make a cartoon! I've actually always wanted to make a claymation movie. But I think I may lack the patience.
David!: Thanks! Of course I will make you something
Windmaker: Thanks so much! & yeah I see what you mean about frankenstein.
n1va: you really think so? OK I will then!
Some things I drew on vacation, not so good stuff really 'cause I was pretty distracted most of the time, but I tried! I mostly sketched things I wanted to sew because of all the crazy craft stores I went into.
Reffed from a crazy fashion book I bought.
Monkeys/meerkats with a brush pen!
the ocean one day, & a lady from my stepmoms magazine:
Portrait from life of my little sister. Her right(our left) eye is too big I realize now.
Unfinished sketch of my break room at work with an 01 micropennnn. 15 minutes-ish.
on the telephone with david birdie sketch
more animal sketches from national geographic =)
I love this one. & I want to make it a tshirt. Maybe ill submit it to threadless.
Bad picture of this zebraa with rainbow sunglasses I started embroidering, but never finished. It'll be done before I go back to school. The sunglasses alone took me about 6 hours, maybe more.
I just love your animal studies.
The contour and blind contour drawings are really nice, even if not completely accurate. For some reason I especially like the contour kitty
In the last picture, the hand touching the eye looks as if it's coming from behind the back. I believe this is due to the shoulder showing to the right of it and the sleeve, being cut by the line of back, or completely coinciding with it.
The owls are awesome too! They remind me of Joel Veitch's stuff. Have you seen it?
Keep doing good stuff
You're killing it lately! Owls rock the shit out of me! I like the contour cat one as well... there's something really nice going in there. Like a life drawing that only uses one or two lines but you can totally tell what's going on. Keep on trying new things and keep the things that are working.
Seems that I'm not the only one improving very quickly ^^.
Comparing your sketches from april to the current ones.. wow o.o'.
Btw. your works are really beautyful, especially the watercolor-llama ;D!
You've got great ideas. Want to see more!!
Goblinshark: Ok! I don't really use lines like that unless im doing a really in depth portrait that ill work on for hours. But more stuff like that definitely will come.
Windmaker: & I just love drawing animals Drawing animals is fun, drawing people stresses me out sometimes. Youre right, the arm does look like it's coming from the back. I didnt even notice that. & Yeah, I know that guy, he did that "We like the moon" thing, I used to love that hahah. The owl does look like that kinda.
Sketch: Killing it!? At first I thought that was a bad thing, haha. I really like the look of the blind contours, it makes for a suprise when you look at it too, sometimes theyre really funny how off they are, & sometimes they have really interesting lines.
Autumnal Dream: Yeah, well pretty much everything except the last drawing in my first post was from high school, but yeah I can definitely tell the improvement I've made. Thanks so much! Here's some more.
Blind contour kitties & hands. I used different colored pens cause if I had too many on one page, you couldnt tell which was which.
EDIT: I HAVE STARS!!! How exciting. THANKS GUYS! =)

wow! yr prolly one of the most original artists here.
LOVE the stuffed animal things you make and yr little simple sketches have a real....umm...oh i cant think of the word. DAMMIT. i feel some sort of a relation to your subject matter...i guess. nice stuff.
I cant believe I have four stars! I seriously started kinda hyperventilating out of excitement when I noticed it. Thanks guys!!!
SO here's two little owl plushies I finished. I'm giving them to my little sister because I feel guilty leaving her to go back to school in a couple days. & what better way to ease the guilt than give PRESENTS!!
