MAN I love your pencils (with charcoal?).. Sell me your sketchbook once it's finished? ^^ nah I'm sure you wouldn't do that. Not for a price I would be able to pay anyway
Ehh enough asspatting.. One thing I noticed was that the eyes of your faces are often a bit out of proportion, or not on the same line. Watch that a lot.. The rest is ehh perfect, maybe also try to vary the subjects you draw, draw some machinery maybe.. Dunno, it seems like you vary quite a lot already.

Ah didn't know it's your work also ^^
Nice update, I like the bird lots.
Just ehh what do you do to get those really dark greys and blacks, if you only use pencil? d'you just put the contrast a whole bit higher or do you use like 10b pencils ?
Noë - hey mate thanks again, um the heaviest pencil il use is a 6 or 8b, i think using the graphite sticks instead of pencils helps because i use them to blend in large area while a pencil has a narrow tip so heavy blacks can be hard to make look right - does that help?
Call0ps - hey thanks matey, um i just use a mechanical penicl and a 6b or 8b graphite stick whichever i can find in my messy bag
steak-tron - hey thanks a lot buddy your stuffs wicked
Justin Oaksford - cheers justin

This sketch blew me away http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...9&d=1174567359. Great pencil work, love the use of value and texture.
