You always comment on mine, glad you finally have a sketchie so I can comment on yours
Lookin pretty darn good actually. You faces are nice, the bodies are good but somewhat more formless in comparasin. I'd also reccomend getting a decent sketchbook but as long as you're practicing it's all good.
Hope to see more

Nice start, show us more. I'd like to see some pencils. Good horses. I feel sorry for Medusa, she looks so downcast...
Watch out for Piranhas

Listing -- Sketchies from life will be forthcoming, no worries
Blaz -- Thx so much!
Piranha Clan -- Great!!! That was exactly the response I wanted for Medusa! Everyone depicts her as evil; I thought I'd go more for "I didn't ask to look like this"..

Wow you must have a lot of free time at work LOL. I loved your sketches. Did you look at anything (horse books/etc) while drawng or was this all from your head?

JessicaNoel -- Glad you like my SB The horses are straight out of my head, due to the many many years I've been poring over "Draw Horses" books, horse calendars, breeding magazines, you name it! Some sketchies had photo refs (the colonial guys, the Indian girl with butterfly fairies).. but most of this stuff was non-ref.
And here we have a still-life I did recently; a "congrats on getting married" card I made for friends [paintmarker, watercolors, and black pen]; and one of my valiant efforts at Photoshop painting -- I'm still very much a n00b!!!

It's really great how all your sketches are done in pen!!! I would not be able to draw with pen and have my sketches look that good.

Thx, Shobunkin Very often, it's what happens to be handy, so... lots of experience with it.

I agree with Shobunkin ur Pen drawings are great. Some anatonomy & proportions studies may help to get more dynamic into ur characters. Ur facial expression is so nice too.
Thankz for stopping by at mime. Keep the pen up man! And Draw
