    SK's Sketchbook *Update: 11/16*

    Hey how's everyone doing,

    I've been looking around the boards at for a while and am impressed with all the primo stuff being posted here. I've been meaning to start my own sketchbook but have been putting it off for the longest time. For some reason tomorrow always seems like the best time to do things...

    ANYWAY, laziness aside guess its time to get down to business. Hope ya'll will pardon the lack of color here for now, but I'll try to update things at least once a week with a little more variety and color.

    C&C, tips and suggestions are always welcome.

    Thanks for the compliment Renier

    Here's a small update with an old pin-up drawing from a few months back.

    Great update and thanks for posting!
    your anatomy is looking good but i think you head placement could use some work. The neck areas seems to be a bit problematic, it's hard to make it look right. You also seem to try and get away with the least amount of lines as possable, which is good, but having a bit more construction lines could help you find the correct forms better.

    Love it, UPDATE more often!

    Random update

    Missed last week's update, but here are some more sketches, the animals are from a book on animal illustration I picked up last weekend (Art of Animal Drawing by Ken Hultgren, an interesting book), and the last one was just for fun, might try turning it into something more finished later.

    Your work looks pretty good! but unfortunately alot of your work is too large to really see (and I work on 1440x990 resolution! O_o)
    Try posting your pictures at a lesser resolution, such as 750x500 or 600x400 even.

    Thanks Chaotic, I went ahead and scaled down a few of the larger ones so I hope that makes things a little easier to view.

    Here's a sketch from this weekend, still need to decide where to go with the lighting before doing something more finished.

    As always tips and critiques are always welcome.

    Love your line quality, you obviously have a steady hand
    and a good eye for copying the master's drawings, which
    is always a great place to start. Don't worry about giving
    us any color yet, just keep cranking out the beautiful line work!

    Thanks BigZam sorry for not answering your questions sooner, but yup I do use Painter. As far as brushes go lets see, I use Cover pencil for linework, recently Acrylics for color (captured bristle, opaque detail, wet detail, etc.) and Just Add Water for blending. I used Oils for a while back but decided to try out Acrylics for now.

    Here's another update, came a little later than expected but oh well wanted to try something a little different (but not too different). The rifle sketches are based off a M14, just tried out a couple variations on it as a little exercise.
