Anjin - Thanks for the kind words. Mechanical pencil along with some Micron pens of varying thickness.
I really enjoy the vibrant colour pieces The lines in this piece are very confident and fluid.
Most of your artwork looks really energetic, especially the ones with outlines or bold colours, but unfortunately the more realistic attempts of rendering don't have the same energy. How about colouring the way you do normally (with lines and hard-edged brushes) to block in the shapes and colours, then refine them later with a softer brush?
Thanks for the crits guys, your opinions are appreciated
@ Mischeviouslittleelf - Thanks man, it's one of my favorites too.
@Quicksilver - Yea it seems that my sketches strong, but my finished works are well..a bit unfinished. I begin to "lose it" when all the paint comes into play. Something I'm trying really hard to understand. I took your advice in regards to the hard edge brushes, and churned out this quickie sp. Let me know what you think.

i like the style on the last one, very stained glass feeling, i don't like the white spots on his adams apple...

Tim, amazing sketchbook dude. Love the style.
i think it would help alot if you used a variety of brushes because at the moment every thing looks very uniform. it might also help to smooth out some of your gradients and add a bit more gritty texture cheers
Aah good stuff here, that edgy self portrait looks amazing! I love the way you're going with your coloured work and the last drawing is really cute as well. One small crit on that one: the guy in the sketch (you?) looks like he's almost uninterested in his pretty lady, whereas he looks very pleased with himself in the photo...
Keep it uuuup and post moar!
I'm really feeling the choppy quick style you're refining. It's starting to take a controlled and beautiful state and I think in a short period of time you'll reach the point at which you fully control it. Great stuff goin' on here, and your sketchbook is almost 2 years old!!! It should be full by now, man! Hahaha. Post more!
@IanE - Thanks man, I go with what works, and the hard on hard build up seems to suit me well. I like to explore a bit in Painter, but it's a tough program to get used to. You are right 3 pages for 2 years is pretty sad..I'll try to rectify that.
Here's this weeks CHOW:
gotta tell you, I usually hate comic book type stuff, but I love your work. keep it up. your digital portraits are very nice especially.
