mr apathy: tee hee thanks!
Cwn Annwn: thanks very much. glad you like it!
Ben: no mate i avoided it because nick and i have tickets and are going to see it this saturday afternoon with our wives up in that manchester! VERY excited!!
ooooo! get you mr fancy pants!
anyway, it looked crap.
actually it didn't...boohoo, i'm jealous
Congrats on the wedding!! Grand time.
Excellent Zbrush3 sculpt. I so want to do things like that, but haven't had time to sit down and play with it. Really good work, man. Seriously and hot new avatar. ;]
I love monkeys. Whenever I see a monkey or see people draw monkeys, it enthralls my creative juices. Though, I would never want a monkey to live with me. I don't like changing an animal's diapers. I'd rather change my own spawn's diapers than an animals any day.

Just thought id drop by and say hello, I personally love that monkey, I want him.
Definilty seeing a surge in the work mate, difinate style being born methinks.
I love you
cheers chaps! nice to have you all drop by. Monkey was awesome- would go and watch it again!
thanks for the support chaps, i really appreciate it!
been doing some george bellows inspired boxer speed paints. fisrt one is reffed fom an ol black and white photo the other 2 are sort of half made up half reffed.
i immediately thought of george bellows before you mentioned it, so that's good ^^ the second piece is the weakest IMO, the figures seem too awkward around the neck.
I love your line drawings---especially the heads from Once and Future king on the first page. Simply wonderful work! You've given me something to work towards as far as my own progress. Thanks for sharing!
LIVE FREE. DRAW HARD.
cheers hp. i plan to do more of them, i agree about the second one: i nearly did not put it up as it was weak but i try and be fairly warts and all about my sketchbook!
viking raider: thanks so much: i LOVED that book!
some art! all sorts really. i am enjoying the victory girl piece and there is even a traditional media piece in here: i am trying to get a better handle on acrylics (stay wet pallette has changed my life) I went into town and took some photos of distinguished looking gents. this chap is the first of many i hope! Glad to be getting back towards my fine art roots a bit!
Saw your great piece on the Victory Gals CHOW thread and thought I'd come visit ya sketchbook again....Awsome updates since I last saw it. So much cool stuff. Keep up the great work!!
Hey man, seeing your work in every CHOW has been pretty sweet, and after seeing this most recent one, decided you sketchbook needed a thorough browsing. You're getting better at the technical elements, and you're studies and thumbnails are kicking ass, so not much to crit, an enjoyable book to look through.
hey jake. nice pic; i like the plaster across the nose... thief!
the shading on pleated skirt looks really sweet as well.
you are becoming more of a badass every day!
Great work! My favorite has to be the japanese warior with the clouds. Badass!! I'd like to see some more pieces along those lines. Thanks for comments on the sb by the way!! Cheers,

hey! you need to update your title of your sketchbook! ^^ I'm one of those ppl who don't look inside until the actual owner posts in it...
your last update is really cool, the japanese style painting is nice. not sure about the colors though. the spaceship port - just make sure you watch your persp on the ship, it's off but you can prolly fix it quick using the perspective tool.
newman: THANKS mate!
Fvallejo: cheers francis
oishiiniku: yes mr carver i liked that too will try anddo some more in that vein soon.
hp: cheers mate. i have trouble getting into my own sketchbook on CA so i often give up trying to update the name!
eXplosiveLimes: thanks very much indeed!
Idiot Apathy: my real name is jake gumbleton! I have been doing quite a lot of concept stuff at work and have started playing with different hard edge lines. hopefully i will feed it back into my other work soon its definatey helping my work. thanks for the advise. thanks for stopping by mate!
nothing but my lunchtime speedies again this week. been socialising too much lately! will try and have more done for next update!
thanks for all popping by.
All 20 mins in photoshop with custom brushes.
great stuff mate, very swooshy!
love the girls mister, been running around the country abit on my new royal enfield bullet and like most things I have it happens to break down a lot. HA HA. Been putting my studio together and once I get that sorted I will come up and visit. Maybe even you can come down for the day, now that's a thought hey.... I tell you something though I wish I didn't sell that bloody helmet as all I got is this old 70's yellow open faced number and every time I go riding I must eat a roast dinners worth of bugs and god knows what.. all the love in the world to you mister.
P.S I sparyed the petrol tank black as soon as I got it.
Ashab: lovely looking bike mate: very you!
Yes come visit soon you tart we all missyou lots!
If you like us lot can some see you at some point that would be cool! My modeo got scrapped so i am only cyclcing these days but i bet one of the others might be up for driving.
Hope evrything is going well for you chap, hopefully we will see you soon.
little update. a 30 min speed from ref a photo i took out of the windscreen of my wife's car (got a lot of these: will be doing a series).
todays lunchtime speedy: topic was 'in the forest' 20 mins including building a cusom leaf brush ZOOM!!
That doodle sheet is a great idea to do. It looks like a carnival of characters and the different styles of them make it interesting to look at. The lunch speedies are nice, especially those trees in your #327 post. I am beginning to wonder if you are eating with one hand and sketching with the other to get these things done during lunch hehehe Keep sharing!
P.D: Oh yeah, what happened to the Batman sculpt? Did you finished it yet? Just wondering.
