Ok so this is some older stuff to give you a little context
This is all stuff from the last few weeks:
this is what I am working on right now.
Just got some new brushes and also got CS3 at home WOO! These are a few brush experements.
Hey man, some good drawings in here! Keep working on them. Keep practicing the digital painting too. Research into the basics of painting and work on them one by one and you could start evolving with the new found knowledge
Thankyou, I usually bring all of my digital paints to oilpainters and ask what they think. Its hard sometimes to get them to realize that the values aren't thrown out the window and so in turn hard to get harshness out of them. Which by the way people: rip me into molecular bits, thats what the internet is for... Or I mean, you don't have to be nice, because you are just the disembodied voices of experience and I can't hold it against you.
Recently I have been playing with the idea of giving the viewer slightly conflicting depth information.
anyways awesome to hear good things from somebody of your standard.
also I made this and I think it hilarious:
working on figuring out how to get this character and his robot to fly. I want the robot have good sideways movement but bad up movement so it has to actually swing him upwards and then when his torque is taking care of his weight ... then the robot can move upwards while he sits almost suspended for a quarter second. Its not working yet but I think its sellable.
rough robot sheet.

repaint for an animation concept
the blurryness is simply a harsh fact of life Im afraid.
Yeah I don't have a scanner either so I use a digital camera and everything is blurry for me too. If I light it well enough sometimes it's not quite as bad but it's never crisp like a scanner.
I really like your sketchbook. The amount of movement and gesture you get into a figure is making me want to switch majors so I can learn that too! I really like your faces and expressions too. Nice stuff. I'll definitely check back to see more.
"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams
My goal: To get good enough to post in the Finally Finished Forum.
When I was young, a motivational speaker came. He wore a cardboard box spray painted silver, pockmarked with dials and lights built from paper and pigment. When he first skulked onto stage, I knew those springloaded tubes on this cardboard abominations body housed human legs.
He stood in front of the mic for a few moments, soaking what I suppose he imagined was awe. In reality I believe it was confusion.
"hello dudes and dudettes!" he said enthusiastically.
Thanks to that man I will always be tempted to use that phrase, and I guess more importantly: thanks to that phrase I will always be tempted to remember that man.

I realize that this reads as a bump but I did just make it.
*edit* "and I think its pretty cool, but will never do anything more with it."
Life, life, life, life!
I wanna see more life drawings!
Even if you're going for a cartoony style, drawing from life will give you the skills to better understand and organize what you see. You'll be able to take that back to your cartoons and they will be much more believable because of it.
Let me explain my situation: I am graduating this semester after a long vicious education. So everything in here is being produced for my final animation or being made between classes. Basically when I come to the digital surface for air, this place gives me a little spring in my step. When time presents itself, lifedrawings will come, I promise. Until then, digital paints=me alone in a room.
But really thanks for dropping by, and Im sure I need to hear it too from time to time.
well, posemaniacs are nice then and then...
Nice cartoon style, good drawing skills as well, just draw more and little more solid if you like
It's bit hard to say anything coherent from blurry sketches or digitals

well i think i can see a lot of greatness from your sketches very cool stuff, the animation of your flying robot is very dynamic.
like your drawing style you have alot of emotion and fluidity in your figures. way to go!
Sketchbook (daily Oils):
backdrop for animation. Tired, so very tired.
Hello there. I have to give you kudos for having one of the most adorable usernames I've ever seen. Your sketchbook thumbnail is also great!
Sometimes a mans gotta pick up sticks to draw another man with big muscles and animesque qualities.
Lost something in the coloring... lost alot. I always have such a hard time reconsoling that.

I really enjoy the animation stuff, and you've got some nice colors. It'd be cool to see some of your concepts in a more finished form.
