damn, this thread already wreaks of style. veery very nice my friend. i enjoyed looking at this stuff. that last page is very good, seems like you had fun doing it the drawings on that page are the most solid in this thread.
keep it up
"Let it BURN"
damn, that last page is hot. You got a nice style here. keep going, dude.
metaphysiks: hey thanks, you are right i had lots offun with the last page. im thinking about finishing it up someday but i like the overall look of it just the way it is.
Jeff Jaws: alright ill try to keep going for sure. its unbelievable,there are so many talented artists here, its u guys that inspire me to draw so more. I gotta get my ass crackin' with this thread!!
liam.c: yea i was using domaindlx for the most of the pics, and apparently my bandwith had exceeded, so im using photobucket now. hopefully it will work out for the better.
now for some artwork! i have several different sketchbooks im working on. this particular peice is from my toned-recycled paper sketchbook. i used guache with this one. this is an older sketch
more quick old fun stuff from pshop. i had no pencil sketch underneath, just went right into pshop and sketched away. my values were too light so i adjusted the contrast levels. i will probably redo it someday or another.
these are some anatomy studies. i went ballzout again and added some crazy strokes, marks, and hatchings, to make the composition more interesting. i used makers.
heres a more recent study of a cute chick with a beer gut from life. it was actually a short pose. i reworked the original and worked on some values and rendered it a lil more. this was on 11x14 bristol paper
here some new sik and twisted stuff that i did. normally i dont do this type of thing, but it seems fun to just mess around with ideas from your head and let loose. its a good stress reliever i think. I will probably do more of these in the near future. i also added text which i think, personally, looks pretty decent
thats it for now i will be back with more fun stuff!! please drop by and say hello or whatever
sinix: thanks man!!
here a some crazy creature with protruding heads. ill color it sometime.

my head hurts too.
Yeah crazy indeed. Kind of semi graffiti style.
I am digging this
great stuff! nitty and gritty, just the way i like it. looks like you threw everthing under the sun at these pages, diffenently got some stuff working for you. its all great stuff, im personally feeling the tonal paper with the color pencil(?) with the extreme line work.
thank you for sharing, keep it coming!
bizarre: thanks a bunch, my style changes depending on my mood, medium, time of day.
endregan: yea i guess that would be an appropriate way of describing my style, sort of semi-graffiti esque. i dont do any graffiti, but i respect the art form, i sometimes incorporate some graffiti elements just to unify the composition. alot of the music i listen to also somewhat plays a factor in terms of my drawing style.
prostate sunrise: thanks man! i like stuff nitty and gritty!! yea with the toned paper stuff i messed around with pencil, guache, marker some pen work etc. i gotta do more stuff in that sketchbook of mine, i havent touched it as of late.
MIKECORRIERO: more thnx. ill def. try to keep this thread up, there so many good sketchbooks out there!!
now for some more random sketches. these are some quick figure studies, about 5 minutes. i pushed some values for more contrast.
quick studies with pen
more with pen
messing around with design elements
more pen work
more fun stuff
quick stuff done in photoshop
doodling around with pencil/marker
anatomy studies done on illustration board
heres a jazz inspired piece. done with some charlie parker and thelonius monk cd cover refs. ill color it someday.
hmm, okay i think thats it for now. ill be back with somemore. take it easy fellas!
it's late and I'm running out of crits but I wanted to say
i love it!
d a v i d p i n e
And why have I not seen this thread? How the F...k did I miss this AMAZING load of SWEETNESS!
Great rendering skillz!
Solid figure study too!
You need to UPDATE....I want more!
sweeeeettttt...nice art man...

maldrin and tgfx: thanks!
XIA: thanks a lot, i appreciate it much, its always inspiring to look at your sketchbook. anyways your painting skills are amazing, im still working on mine!
whew, sbeen a while since i last updated, i have been practicing speed painting, and doing some quick sketches on ps, enough jibber here goes:
here some fun and quick sketch in ps
old sketch colored in ps
speed painting that took a while (photo ref used) added a caption just for hell of it.
thats it for now, i have some more on the way!!
very solid work man. i like your use of color and your figures are very confident. keep it up...this is definatly a thread to watch. just keep posting.
I'm with Zia. 5 stars!
I love the fact that you mix all these mediums together.
Cant wait to tee the head creature in color!!!!
Oh yeah love youre PS work!!!!!!!
Crunch: whuts up man! thanks for the kind words. color can be mind boggling at times, for me at least.
scottg: sup! thanks for the comments. i have a tendency to try different mediums and mixing them up to get different visual effects, thats just my modus op, but my weapon of choice is still the almighty pencil.
heres another fun speed painting i did. i could work on it somemore but that defeats the purpose of a quick sketch. anyways the more i work on something the more i nitpick, so it was better of being left as is, otherwise i probably would have spent another hour on the damn thing. this was originally in b/w but i tweaked the colors to get a warm grey tone, and i used some cool greys for the bg.
hey! you're quite good... i really like the one with the afro, the 2 lifes and that green background, and the woman has green hair....i really like it...
spok: hey mans thanks for dropping by! i like afros for some reason, they are stylish. heh heh. yea that peice with the green haired girl was fun, i unified the whole thing with some design elements, and different hatche marks and such.
i got some zany characters on tonal paper right herrr. i used ball point, and some marker. im gonna knock out more of these guys, these are fun to do!
questions, comments, concerns, are always appreciated!!
wow, awesome stuff. The chick with the beer gut is hot hot hot! oh, and the drawing of her is pretty good too.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
jetpack42: whats happening man? thanks for droppin by my 'low reply thread', anyways, yea that chick i drew from life was really smokin' in reality she was fun to observe, she had nice contours and beautiful folds, it was to bad she was dykadelic, she had some hairy pit action too, which sucked bad. hmm come to think of it, theres actually a high percentage of hairy chicks that pose at my school.
okee, changing gears now, i got some more fun and zany character designs on the way. heres a nasty slug creature, comments questions, concerns are always appreciated!
maxetormer: hey whats up! glad you like the composition, im just experimenting and trying different things.
ive been mad busy the past couple days so i couldnt update as much. i had to do some house makeover stuff. got new carpeting and i had to help paint my room and my bros so i had to move all my crap out. my computer was disconnected too, so i had no internet and i couldnt scan for like 2 days. not having a computer for that long sucks nuts. anyways heres more drawings some old and some new.
older pen work
inspired by weird stuff i seen from ripleys belive or not show
alien creature hatching out of kids head threw in some blood for some spunk.
older life drawing
comment, crits, suggestions, are always welcome
Glad I bookmarked this. Came back a couple weeks later and BLAMMO some awesome art had happened.
the ball point/marker stuff is great fun...I'm loving what you've done with the place.
d a v i d p i n e
you crazy crazy mofo.. the last life drawing in schweet. - ry
maldrin: hows it man? thnx for dropping by you are one kind mug! glad u like that marker pen stuff, just messing around with different techniques its good to loosen up a bit with different mediums.
chudzta: lol, thanks man, i try to be as crazy as i can be.
quick speed paint
some more life drawins and shtuffs
one of those fun with photorefs and captions done in ps.
crits comments suggestions, questions are always welcome please feel free to drop by and say something!! anything!!
maxetormer: hey whats up! thanks for the crits finnaly some crits! hah hah, yea i feel the same way now that you mentioned it. but im a lazy man at heart,i dont feel like working on it anymore, once i finish something up i have a tendencey to just leave it as is unless it is imperative to make those changes.
i have a crapload of stuff to scan so keep an eye on this sb. feel free to rate my thread too if you guys have the time!
You suck! My little sister draws better than you.
Obviously you can tell I'm joking. This stuff is amazing. *gives five star rating*
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^
xpose: is your lil sister hot? nahh jus jokin' lol, thnx for dropping by man i appreciate it.
prostate sunrise: i appreciate very much! im gonna rock it some more!
van:thanks man! glad you found my thread, keep checking back for more stuff!
heres a speed paint i did today, kinda looks like ass, im not very fond of it. im going to do a pencil drawing based on this one soon.
heres a random weird spur of the moment speed paint, this is more painterly and experimental using photo ref. i actually did this a while back last semester. i had some left over acrylic paints and they were sitting inside my airtight palatte smelling like funk, so i decided to use them on some scrap illustration board. im prolly gonna rehash this concept and turn it into a pencil drawing and later color it in ps. everything is pretty funked up on this one.
this is sort of a wip. but i dont want to work on it n e more. got frustrated with the whole damn thing so i adjusted the lightness, i dont know why. looks weird, but better than how it looked before. imo.
heres some doodling, some anatomy issues, i know.
i colored this one is ps, jus experimenting

nice stuff buddy, you have a great style. your sketches alone look wicked but with the color and quotes you add in, it just gives your pages so much style and makes them fun to look at. im definitely gonna be checkin this sketchbook out more. peace
nmcleod: whuts up man? thnx for droppin by my dsb. yea man ive been using the quotes stuff just for fun. its good to throw in some randomness every now and then.
arghmisfit: thank you, I appreciate it, that means a lot to me ya know!! yea, coro is one of my favs. his work is amazing and very inspiring to me. i Still got to practice some more of his techniques. be on the lookout for some oil paintings!!
jca: sup man! thnx, heh dont sleep on this thread u will find out my true identity as this thread progresses!! stay tuned!!
whew, sbeen a while since i updated this badboy anyhoo
i got some life sketches here for now... some old some new.
this one is an oldie
more life sketches
more life, used a dull pencil for this one
pen on this dude
gestures using pen
pencil for this one
added some elements in the bg, just goin with the flow.
i have a tendency to draw large heads at times, usually that happens when i draw the head first.
quick coloring in ps, not quite finished, but i like the loosness of this one.
these were short studies, but i tweaked them a bit.
and another one
this one done in 20 mins or so i think.
crits, comments, questions, suggestions, or what have you are always appreciated! feel to free to rate this thread if u want, im not forcing u guys, i just would like to know what this thread would score. thanks again!
Your stuff is awesome! I feel like i have missed out since i didn`t discover this thread until now..
5 stars from me.
Keep `em coming!
Awesome Stuff! cant┤wait to see more.
some great stuff in here. I too got a graphitti feel from your work, especially the earlier posts, but you've already addressed that. I think my favorite pieces are the mixed media ones. they have lots of interesting stuff going on. lots of the life drawings rock, but I think my favorite are the quicker ones. I don't mind when you go back and add stuff to the negative space, but are you going back and adding outlines to the figures too? some of the figures have really strong outlines that could work if you wanted to color them and add crazy background elements, but the strong outlines can take away from the drawing if it's just the figures. anyway, you've got some good things going on, so keep at it.
finnally got off my slacker ass and updated my dsb. been glued to the tv set watching the olypmics womans beach volleyball and womans gymnastics. very skilled woman competing. big ups to kerri walsh and her partner misty may for winning gold. i digress...
prostate sunrise: thnx for droppin by man. loved your thunderdome entry.
Slash: sup slash? appreciate it very very much man. cheers to you!!
Pichuerca: thnx man, ill keep postin.
steak-tron: whats up man? big fan of your thread, thanks for checking out my dsb, i appreciate it a hecka of a lot.
Whut up elboy: some of the lifedrawing stuff I did were using a very light 2h pencil. I felt that I couldn’t feel the form in its entireity so I went back and rehashed some of them with a darker outline(hb pencil) just to accentuate the form. This is something Ive been doing in the past cause usually the poses are short, around 5 minutes. So whenever I have the free time I throw in some dark values to fill in some of the negative space and just to make certain areas go…. pop. I get what you are trying to say, the strong outlines can take away from the drawing, I was going for the design look.. Anyhoo the background elements are thrown in as a result of my “going with the flow” if you will. , its definitely part of my personality showing through in my works Its something that I cant stray away from as its just part of my approach of things. Hmmm I appreciate your taking the time to write some comments. I will most definitely keep this in mind….
Changing gears now…. got some sketches that have been sleeping in my book for a while.
heres a quick sketch i did in like 10 minutes, very loose, spontaneous, spur of the moment, free drawing if u will.
i later on rehashed that drawing, and got something like this...
thats it folks, stay tuned for more of my sketches.

Wow first time I went through your thread, some amazing art in here! Your mixed media are great.. What I really LOVE are the ball point and colored pencils on the toned paper. But every drawing you have is strong, and you never waste space, thats for sure.
On a side note, I watched the womens beach volleyball, and your right it was great. Kerri and Misty did a good job!
Anyways, keep posting, youve just inspired me some more!

Very cool sketchbook! I'll be checking in here regularly. I love the inks and the fact that you're not bashful about experimenting with color. Myself, on the other hand, has a big problem with that
arghmisfit: and i thank you.
Burning Eyes: thnx for stopping by my thread man! i like messin around with different mediums, trying new shit is always a good thing. i plan to do more sketches in my toned sketchbook when time permits so keep an eye out. on another note i just watched the rhythmic gymnastics and all i can say is those girls are mad flexible!
Groover McNab: awesome to have u post in my thread, as your colored stuff is wicked nice. thnx for noticing my knack for experiementing with different colors and such
