Dude this poem was both disgusting and charming at the same time (with the pictures of course) and im digging the zoo.. cool and interesting style
keep it flowin'!
WOW! This stuffs pretty RAD!
Check out my sketchbook
damn man, those graphical designs... zoo? are really kicking. You have a very nice feeling for that.
I really do enjoy your rather unique and scribbly style but I feel a little uncertain of where you are going with it at the moment. As B&W they work really well, but when you add colours to your pieces some of the lines feel abundant do not add t the piece (in my very personal opinion).
Keep sharing man, I am really interested in this SB.
marc - thanks man! Glad you like it.
Buckster - The graphic designs are inspired by Juno Reactor's music. I don't know exactly what the Zoo was...I was thinking those animals from earlier.
I agree about the line work - I don't know where I'm going with it, either. I was just coloring sketches, really.
I'm still trying to get good with colors; I should definitely try and reduce the line work in the finished pieces...
Thanks for the observation!
damn cool stuff...I never know what to expect from you! in the time I went to browse the previously unseen page you've posted yet something else haha.
The comic style is neat do keep that up...as well as exploring what is outside your norm since it will only make you more wise Poor alba...
hey, nice sb but imho you have a general problem with your colors and renderings.
you use just very dark and very light values... make some studies with pencil, oil paints or whatever (monochromatic... helps).
you will notice that there are midtones too!
and do anatomy studies... they will help you very much with !
try to focus on how the muscles work and where they are attatched.
how the skeleton is build up and what forms a body has.
check also my sb out ^^ ... would be very nice
Thanks for the critique, Hax.
Indeed, I have not been using color for very long (I've always done line work for as long as I can remember), and I've only really been practicing rendering for a couple months, so the pointers are much appreciated.

Love your sketchbook. The comics you draw are very interesting. Never stop.
Thanks zenarion! Much appreciated. Rest assured, I'll be doing comics forever...
30-min ref mess-around
First time I've tried the dark-to-light thing...I'll get better
I've got little time to do studies like this over the next couple weeks, as I'm in the process of moving to another state...but when I get there, I'll be drawing out my ass.
im loving some these pieces so much, you have a great graphic sense here! keep up the awesome work man!
Twisted, very twisted but so stylishly done! Not a huge fan of the colour schemes (like haxxxor) but in my case i think it's down to personal taste. I would be interested in seeing what your work looks like with a nice typically harmonious colour scheme to it though! Have you tried colouring in greyscale? Then you can experiment with colours by creating another layer on top, and setting it's blend mode to colour. Then just colour away - a really quick way to get loads of colour schemes out of the same sketch.
thek - Thanks man! I do tend to go neon advertisement lighting/color on the things I do for fun...heh
I'll definitely be experimenting more with color, and you've given me quite good suggestions. Thanks for the critique!
Here's a poem about an allergic reaction.

Hey man, I can see that you are thinking alot more when colouring now. I think that you have something going for you, keep things simple in the beginning and let the pieces you do talk and guide you. Try some grayscale renderings and use colour layers as a way of getting over your fear colour in general. I enjoy looking at your pieces man and keep doing those studies.
Thanks for the awesome advice, Buckster.
I will indeed do simpler studies for now, and the blackandwhite studies sound much less intimidating.
(hopefully, time spent will diminish as confidence rises)
