ah,shiny! Great thing to do. fastest way to painting skilz I say.
Keep going dude!
quicksilver, sketchling, thanks for the encouragement, i really need it. not doing half as much drawing as i should be, spending all my time thinking about what i should be and what i want to be doing and never actually doing anything. damn my lazy indecisiveness.
some things for a poster i had to do. i see them as a simplified exercise in anatomy. really really simplified.

ok so a post is well past due and it should be a lot bigger than this but i'll be honest, i've done no drawing or sketching in ages.
i got into graffiti a little bit while i was in Biarritz
and the results from last nights drink-drawing sesh with Badger and Lorenzo!
this is the beginning "oh god i thought i could draw mildly well but this is so shockingly bad that i shall accept that offer of a drink thank you josh"
and then i got better
i will draw more.
edit: oh i forgot my boot
its not finished by a long shot but i think im too busy now to really be bothered to pick it up again. plus the actual boot is at home.

The J-man!!! Ah, great to see this stuff updated, duder!!!
First up, those graffiti gubbins are very cool, though the vector ones are a little more confident. Love to colour choices on those ones, too! The sketches from our Bristol sesh are really nice on the screen. I think with a little tweaking that tank could still rock, you know! Finally, Das Boot!! Holy crappola, man, that's absolutely beeeeeeeutiful!! Blew me away! More like that!! More like that, I say!!!
Cheers bro! Keep it up!
that boot studie is pretty dam nice james, very cool and i like the motor bike also, get back to drawing daily dam u.
cheers demoon, i too think it is a beautiful kneeboot.
heh, Lorenzo!!!!!, emphatic and encouraging as ever, ta for popping round.
since when did i ever draw daily dan???
aany hoo, here's some more rubbish
i like the top boat and the spacemandude but the rest is pants. will try thumbs again at some point...
oh and seriously, crits from random floating people would be really really great.

hey man good to see some updates again, my main suggestion is an immensly boring one!do loads and loads more studys, i dunno i suppose it really depends on what you want to get good at, your graphics stuff is loverly,really does impress the pants of me, but if wanna try some more illustration type stuff, perhaps try some studys from life?just try to keep to like 3 a week for three hours a week?getting the foundations down will really help pop your work out.
bah then again what do i know.
Soooooooooooooooooooooooo, it's been a while. Then I spoke to lefran about something unrelated, brushed off the dust from my CA login, had a quick ganders at her work, which in turn made me vomit with envy and renewed my inspiration to draw stuff...
...A few weeks later after not even looking at a pencil, I looked at stuff by DannySketch and that actually made me pick up a pencil and I did these. Pleeease help. I really really need to improve otherwise there's no satisfaction in it.
So the first pic is based on some studies by ConceptArtist and the second were reference from a gymnast or some such.
