copperfire: muchos gracias
Random is good.....sigh
Haha keep on with the monsters!/creatures... its gonna be pretty stiff stuff, wish i was a little more skilled, i would love to win some massive black dvds... aaa where is my heaven!? and a winning lottery ticket... wishing is a dangerous past time...
tis true man, I'd love those workshop tix but alas the pleasure of compeating will have to suffice I'm loving the focus needing to do 100 is putting on the streamlining of my work, I think I fuss to much usually, this cow is really loosening me up
more random character doodle:
yes, i guess so, although i think i've only ever competed once in a UK Thunderdome lol i think i won, can't remember.
and yes, loosing up is very important, i keep having to remind myself of this, oh, and to actually draw haha.
nice work man!
whoa man!! i like your stuff too much. your ps skills are so cool! i'm looking for that mentor thing. perhaps, if you like... you will mentor me.. dunno very well how does it works.. i do must to read the sticky posts..
pleas excuse my poor tarzan english.
Work doodles have been taking up most my time over the last week..but I got round to a a bit of personal stuff (more wonderfull cow 100's took me to the half way stage).
Frogsweat: more random for ya this time round. Hope the uni thang is still rocking along nicely...I miss my uni days!
foxboy: why thankyou my friend
Leandro Carlos:Gracias amigo!...I'm just gonna message you..
Brush your feet:

Can't wait to see the monsters for cow, haven't been this excited since i was waiting for the new CNC to come out lol.
on another note, i subbed to imaginefx! how awesome is that! do you get it at all, if you don't you need a bitch slap!. really hope i'm in time to get that free dvd...
I have no crit but I just wanted to say I really dig your stylised illustrations and the way you utilise vibrant colours. Your eow entries are always pleasing to the eye.
Keep it up!

frixon: Cheers bro, theyre all provisionally there now (Will increase the size when Im done too, but will have to split em up as as they are they're too big to attach all at once), I plan on paying more attention to my favourite ones and will hopefully get round to that and posting em soon.
frogSweat: Thanks buddy, thats what it's alll aboot. And I generally leaf through ImagineFX when I'm in WHSmiths, but can't reall afford it at the mo....need more work!! (my mag is 2Dartist as A:Im in it lots with the old stylized animal challenges, and B: I get it free when I do good in the challenges).
GriNGoLoCo: Gracias amigo, I dig your stuff too.
AK86: Thanks man, and awsome your from up here in the sunny north too!...I dont go to Preston much, exept when the damn trains are cancelled and I have to get the replacement bus there!
zweiDee:Thankyou, they were loads of fun to do!
tensai: Really glad you like my humble doodles, I actually really need to work on my colours, but it's cool you dig them
Stylized goodness for the month (there's a bit of cow influence with the old clinical white in this one):
Aye, that it is. and 2dartist? never heard of it, but it must be good if your in it lol. damn cheapskate! you gotta send me a signed copy haha.
sweet creature, reminds me of a meerkat kinda thingy... if it was a dinosaur.. meow woof moo zoom bang booo pompom and other random noises....???!?!?!?!
really loving the animals the hyena and the 100 creatures are awesome!!! look forward to seein more from you!
btw those animals make me think of ricky gervais' flanimals but better looking...
frogSweat: Hehe, it does help my poorness, I'll subscribe to IFX when I'm not on the poverty line
Joeslucher: Thanks man, I'll be checking on your progress soon
foxboy: Thanks buddy, appreciate it!
CAUTION: hehe, I've only ever seen the cover of flanimals...all's I know is they're rather random. Thanks for the comments..I'll be doing some more fun stylized stuff soon-I'm in the mood for random right now
idoru: I think cutely weired is my unofficial mission statement, thankyou
Quick and fun for Mojizu.com (if any of you know it I won the war this month..so hurah for winning something)
Fun and interesting linework, very cool...something farr from my specialty if I could even claim one at all! Do you have any 'theme' for these are are they just cleaned up random doodles?
Cheers cold, glad you like the lil fella.
Jakers: Thanks man, some of the stuff here is for my folio, some is practice and exploration, some of the little characters I do for a character design site called Mojizu, but it's almost all just whatever I feel like doing at the time..no real theme as it were
playing a bit with the IDW, hopefully get round to finishing the puppy:
bhanu:thanks man...I have a long ways to go till I'm where I want to be, but thanks for enjoying where I'm at so far.
Got to colouring the droid:
And hopefully a new feature in here, coffeeshop doodle:

hey man, sweet droid, though to me its a little hard to make out at first, maybe because its stylized? and loving the creature, makes me think of dino from the flintstones haha, saw your 100 monsters entry, very good, bet that fun to do and very tiring haha
frogSweat: Dude...I went to check your new work, and there is none in your SB...SORT IT Cheers for the comments...yeah that puppy is inspired by a few stylised futuristic designs...I guess very loosely on Giger and others, I'm going to overhaul it a little if work isn't too hectic before the deadline. And yes...the creatures were actually pretty fun to do, I went through a touch patch in the middle, but by the end was loving it again.
I started life drawing a few weeks back after a few years without it....it's been fun to go none digital and play a little bit (real life is scary without Ctrl+Z though...I need to get rid of that crutch!), should really put some good effort into traditional experiments:
Cool experiments and updates.
DARAF:Thanks man, I need to experiment more for sure
A mate has a gig next week...so one of my friends decided to get some tees done that we can wear to it....the slogan isn't mine
And this months stylized animal:

Hey, cool looking stuff. I would say that your linework is your strongest point, and your cartoon design too. You know how to put lights very well with perhaps some minor issues. The part that I don't like that much is the backgrounds, the backgrounds compositions and the colors (sometimes are really good like in 51, and sometimes they are not like in 41). You also haven't post almost non figure work with real proportions, and the one you posted seem a little bit too worked out, had some mistakes, not clean boarders and wasn't in perfect proportion.
I think that perhaps you should post your awesome cartoons in the "it's finally finished" forum, and the drawings with some flaws in here.
