After years of lurking and a smattering of short posts, Ive decided to really get more involved here. So Im starting this thread for the sketches I have accumulated.
Unfortunately due to my liking for creatures and biological forms, most of my sketches consist of various creatures.
I would like to improve in the following areas:
- Human Anatomy
- Foreshortening and poses in prespective
- Inorganic forms (vehicles and structures)
I would like to make more improvements in digitally rendering and painting my pieces. Currently Im not as efficient as I would like to be in my blockin and rendering stage. In addition I would like to improve my understanding of color relationships.
I would like to address these issues in future sketches.
Please offer your expertise. Anything you can offer will be highly appreciated.

Im making somes attempts to break out of the actual biology of bone structures.
Something that frustrates me greatly when I draw creatures is that Im always tempted to build upon things that already exist as opposed to exploring options that could have been.
Here's a creature that I drew recently. He turned out real cute, so I drew a cartoony version of him in the corner.
I still need to come up with a non-cliched body type for him.
I havent posted anything in a while. Even though this is the sketches forum, the overall quality of the work here, dictates that I should only refined or semi-refined sketches.

Hello and welcome to CA Spiral Fish!
Wow, I really like your pencil sketches, they are excellent and very clean!
I do feel that your digital painting doesn't live up to your visions however, but hey, you know you're working hard and that will come in time. I'd also suggest looking at the brush work of classical masters and learning from them, they hold many secrets that only study can decipher!
The other thing about your sketches is that they radiate life and personality, always a beautiful thing to look at! =)
If you have time, pop around to my sketchbook, would be great having you =)

i think you kick ass ...there is really no need to improve i mean what is it that you are reaching for ...animation or classical?
Please visit my sketchbook ….I love the feed back
The greatest achievement is selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
