What are you using to color these? It looks awesome!
Not much to crit on I'm afraid as these are a bit too stylistic to approach in that way.
All I can say is... KEEP ON ROCKIN'!
Wait! So at what hour do you go to sleep then!?
Your program sounds totally knocked out, overall! o_O
Not a big fan of the last post, but the "scribble" from the other page has some nice colours!
I particularly like the last one, with the blue and brownish shade. Looks like the intelligent type too. And with all that blue, he's bound to be the protagonist heh.
I really like the style and color of your work ^_^
Thanks very much you two, and cheers again BlackDelphin for pointing out your thoughts on the last image. I'd really like to know what it is that didn't sway you? Still trying to develop an aesthetic grounding for markers see.
Also I did actually sleep, something ridiulous like 10 hours or something, but pretty much collapsed when i got home though!
you have some really fun stuff. Your characters have so much energy. Keep up the good work!
"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville
Oh wow! Where to start...
I really love the way you draw! Everything has a lot of feeling put into it. Really fantastic!
I was going to critique you on your digital paintings but then I went to your most recent pages and it looks like you fixed your problems!
Your improvement from page 1 is amazing! I'm in love with your marker art.
Your sketchbook is frigging amazing! I love your style, its so dynamic and fun to look at.
Oh awesome! That's cool that you'll continue doing 3d character models! Can't wait to see more!
Can't get enough of your marker work! Do Tombow markers bleed a lot?
The gorillas from the last page and the old man is fantastic! I love the shape of the gorilla. Great stuff!
Paying more attention to it, i guess it's because of that blue-brown combination.
And than we have a black text bubble. Also that really red/orangy nose.
It doesn't seem to fit in the whole concept.
If you'd like me to, i could point out in each what i like and what not, and why.
It would be really fun exploration.
That last post is sweet! I like the character on the left, he's so cute! The eyes..i just like them so much!
Thanks heaps guys and gals.
Aresa: Not for me, but I use a sketchbook that has some slightly thicker paper, can't see the brand on it though. But from what I remember those markers are really friendly on standard copy paper too (but do a test just in case). Promarkers are my friends preference but I couldn't get over how much they just drink the paper.
BlackDelphin: Thanks heaps If you find time to go through your points I'd really really appreciate it, but if not don't worry about it!
Here's tonights doodle, the Jazz Rippah in a slightly McBess style for shits and giggles.

^^^ Perfect! Death would like the rock n' roll eh? The harder the bettah!
Hey I checked out The Backwater Gospel. Yeah...THAT'S pretty dark! hahaha
But I do like the animation style and characters. You're take on that is pretty cool!
I'm diggin Gus and his 4 eyed friend! Your work is very imaginative!
Ciao fer now!
Hey duder, been too long since i stomped through here, tons of fun updates! I loved the drawings generated from random shaped a few pages back, that's one of my favorite exercises to warm up with as well. Awesome marker and brush work as of late as well. Oh yeah, on the latest Jazz Rippah, gotta love the smiley leaf, heheh~
Lots of fun energy behind your lines and designs, i need to be more regular in here for sure. Keep it up!
Its Aang from avatar Thanks for stopping by my Sb( and giving me such good critiques!) Are you still in Jeff Browns skype group?
Oh maan! YOu just keep on entertaining Nice one dude! Nice one!
I jsut basically enjoy all you character and that last grim reaper jazz guy with oldish cartoon style is a killer ^^ i can already picture the 20s-40s music playing in the background while that guy is bouncing around ^^keep them coming!
Hehe.No. Wabbut hate carr.ut
A lot of fun in here. Good imagination and fun.
If you are looking for some solid improvement, try to get out of your comfort zone a bit. Judging from the last couple of pages, you seem to dodge using proportion very much... the few life drawings I saw indicated the need for more work there. If you learn to love proportion, IMO your drawings would take that next leap forward.
Cheers and keep having fun.
Jephyr X: He like'a da rawk! Thanks very much man, and yeah Backwater Gospel is awesome!
AustenFM: Again, you're a blast from the past hah. Thanks heaps man!
Ven S: Hey mate, yep I still hop onto skype every now and then to see what's up with you guys.
dblock: Cheers dude. I've seen that book around before but never taken the time to go into it myself, will definitely hunt it down, thanks!
Ztak: Ahhhh man, that cartoon was so demented, if it were made today it'd be banned. Though it was okay to get away with any kind of humor back then, good ol days I guess Thanks heaps, check out McBess if you like that kind of stuff!
p sage: Thanks heaps mate, you're totally right, I'm getting really comfortable with markers now, and while I can keep using them it's bad to stagnate. At the moment it's just to keep me sane during a busy 3D animation paper, when school's out there's a great life drawing class I'm going to go back to with Hogarth's and Bridgeman on hand daily. Thanks for the awesome feedback!
Mörtn: Cheers mate! Digging your work.
sony: Haha, thanks heaps!
Dumping a few more marker sketches, trying some ideas for a wee project at uni and just revisited some old sketches to flesh them out / try something slightly different colouring-wise.
Road worker I see every day on the way to work / school. He holds his arm out like that with the "GO/STOP" sign in one hand like a staff, and motions for you to come closer when he switches to GO, he also stoops over like a stooge. I call him the Gravel Shaman.
LOL I love the "Gravel Shaman". and the wellington zoo piece is really amazing. great work!
I'm loving your sketchbook. Looks like you found a style that works for you
