really fun stuff, your concepts are great and the lines are superb! can´t get enough of them!
i think the contrast between the stylized characters and the dark atmosphere, in some of your paintings, is really sweet =)
ReviseTheMethod: Thank you, I'm trying-still not got the time I'd like to dedicate to these fun thigs though
Reject-D: Cheers-gonna try to diversify a little more I think
domo arigato: will try
Dazzamataz: As ever, still improving, but thanks
Atastrophea: Yes, I agree-crits please?
krossj: Yeah man, may even venture more into the real watercolour world if I can find the time
meganite: Thanks-line is something I made a concerted effort to improve last year-it's all about strong confident strokes as far as how I work-and you just need to feel the low and not be afraid of mistakes
Sellis: Cheers dude-hopefully see ya down in the big smoke one of these days
TiWi: Thanks, need to get back on them Hellados
Mischeviouslittleelf: Yeah love his renders!
pepps: Cheers-I do like to mix it up just a little.

We should totally meet up soon dave, your figure studies are looking great, keep rockin them. Theres a pub near me that hosts figure studies on Mondays so might start going regular. Thanks for stopping by the SB dude, aint finished anything for ages.
I'll give you a ring.
Here is my Sketchbook. Please have a look if you have time. Thanks.
Smarty: Cheers man-hopefully see ya again soon at another meet
Bob: Will see ya soon dude
Some digital stuff, might photo/post life drawings and scan some sketchbook stuff soon if I can be bothered.
Some DS colors doodles, loving that damn programme!...it's fairly obvious but the ones from life are 2nd down on the left and the bottom lot (minus that tree)
Studies-color ones from internet reference
And another from internet photo
Great work dude, this guy is awesome http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...5&d=1234293603
Keep it up.
Hey Dave, it was good to see you again at the sketch meet. Not seen any of your colour stuff before but it's just as gorgeous as your sketches!

Wow, Crazy style there Bud! : P I love it! What funny creatures you take out of that head of yours. Your life drawings look great, too! so much of a confidence difference from your first page. Your strokes are very sure of themselves. I would love to see some more technical experiments/studies though! You've got such a heavy style, both with your proportion, anatomy and coloration that I think it can only get better the more you study. : D Remember that it never hurts, even for an experienced artist to go back to the basics. That's my only suggestion, and it's clear you've already been doing a good job with that. Keep it up. Peace.
PS: I'll be watching you.
jackpot_anjr90: Thankyou, I should post some more life drawing when I can be bothered-it's a weekly thing for me now.
Noukah: You keep coming, I'll keep doodling
Koto: Cheers dude-Loving your pencils!
Kan: Gracias sexy
Deon: Thanks, I think I still need to push more at the character aspect-it's easy to get distracted designing without injecting some personality
NoodleDoodle: Cheers-I hope to push for bigger and better things
Timsalcove: Your so right- (the cockatoo below is one of many more studies to follow), I really need to stop being lazy and put in more study time, it really does help-thanks
The Flaming monkey was done at a sketchmeet recently where we all made-up/got a subject to draw; good fun. Seahorse for a freind to give to her boss, sheep update, cockatoo study from photo (slightly stylized), and something where I was trying to get some more interesting lighting going
wow your sb sure is fun to look at... i saved some of your drawings in my inspiration folder, hope you dont mind the kid invention is wicked by the way.. i like how you position the features and play with that to create certain expressions..
keep on rock and roll in
Extreme stuff, tall Dave
This is Luke from Friday :>
That sheep is awesome! Though i do not approve of such gratuitous grass brush usage.
Teh Gosu: I'm honored to be in your inspirations folder
B-Man: If I remember I will
Hey Luke -hopefully see you again soon!
Adam: your probably right-may re-visit if I can be bothered
A study from ref, a dude from above I decided tot totally overhaul and my cow for the week:
Great update - I friggin' love your creatures. They're all so fantastically fantastical. Great job with the cockatoo- I love your sheep. Gives me a bit of the giggles. Peace.
Agreed on the great update! Love the rendering on the creature.
