Kiel- Very nice stuff here man!
I do indeed have a ton of flicks from Coros sketchbook. When I get them all edited and uploaded to my personal digital photo site I'll link you to all the photos from the whole event.

wow some of this is really shaping up, especially your sense of anatomy- weight and movement. Love the last inky post as well.
Those animals looks a little too geometric. Which if your going for something simple and stylised you need to introduce some tension and relaxation in some of the shapes to keep them dynamic.

invinciblewombat: thanks man, if i were to finish a painting, i suppose that'd be a good place to start.
xxzxczx_me: thanks, yeah i need to work on that finishing thing...
SmartKyle: Thanks dood. i'll work on that, it was kind of hard to see shape on those furry bears though.
So, not much creative work lately, just school work/studies. I had to adjust levels/color balance these a bit, feels like cheating, but I suck at photographing my stuff. I also got some webspace, so now my pictures won't be thrown around the screen randomly, which was annoying.
Well, it's been over a month, I should probably post something. I'm too lazy to scan stuff/photograph, I'll have to get to that some time. In the mean time, here's a digital painting of some couches in my house, which I didn't have to scan. Colors look desaturated on my laptop, so this may look overly colorful...
Amazing life drawings and sketches! Perfect skills!
you got skillzzz.
The Chronicles of Dust
..the chronicles of dust
lots of potential! veh naihs! the ink sketch of your workspace has lots of character. wish you well with your sketching
Thanks john. Never thought about intake...
So, I haven't updated in so long because I was taking a summer english course. It was my final class, so now I've got my Associates and can move on to greener pastures. I didn't do much art during the class because of how intensive it was, but I've done a bit since it ended last week. Update time:
Nice sketchbook. Very strong sense of composition and good poses and good painting skills.
Crit: Sterno-mastoids: I don't see one in the entire sketchbook. Sterno-mastoids will become your friend if you learn them. Your heads will no longer float off your necks. Try Bridgman, Bammes or Hogarth to learn the form and action of Sterno-mastoids.
Also, study the anatomy of the tip of the nose and the nostrils, deltoids, legs.... well, everything else. Your anatomy is holding you back at the moment.
At least Icarus tried!
My Process: Dead Rider Graphic Novel (Dark Horse Comics) plus oil paintings, pencils and other goodies:
My "Smilechild" Music. Plus a medley of Commercial Music Cues and a Folksy Jingle!:
donal, thanks man.
kev, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some crit. I never really noticed my lack of sterno-mastoids. I usually do the top at the base of the skull but tend to ignore the pit of the neck part of the muscle. So, after reading your comment, I did some Bridgman neck studies last night.
So it's been over 2 months, time for an update. I should post fewer pictures more often, the number of images on this page is getting ridiculous. I've got a few little projects going on, including a short comic about a guy and his tank in the desert and some space pilot portraits for a friend's space sim game. Fun stuff first, then school work:

Figurative work is great dude, accuracy is too.
On your paints I think a little more love given to clean shapes and edge control would go a long way. With the pencils, you might vary your line weight and edge control a bit too - as well as values. Depth counts extra in pencil, no color to help you there.
