Renier van der West: Thanks, I use pencil, ink, watercolor, and color pencil. Actually it's hard to tell because I grayscaled and tinted the image to save image size. Here's one of the pages without the change, sorry about that.
Page of studies posted.

Happy New Year!
Those anatomy studies on tinted paper are really nice - more of those please!
Also, it seems you have a problem drawing lips? CAn't really tell, a lot of your drawings here are quite small, but you might wanna look into that.
Great work though, keep it up!
pretty awesome sketchbook you got here!
really like those sketchpage's.
Happy new year!!
Great sketchs. I really like the studies and the first post. Keep posting.
bunny: I see what you mean by the lips. On bunch of the smaller heads I use three simple dashes. I'm browsing some bigger of protraits and it doesn't have a very define plains.(I'll post those soon) I think you are right, I'm due for an upgrade. Thanks!
oma: Happy New Year!!!
designboot: Thank You
GeeWesley: Thx, I'll keep posting.
Here is another study.
I use to know someone who was close to me, that I considered a mentor during the time. She went to a nice art school and would tell me all the fantastic things she learned or famous people who taught there. We use to draw together for fun when we were younger, but things were different after she went to that school. Soon I wasn't considered fit enough to draw with her because I never meet the famous people she mentioned or used expensive equipment as she did. Teasing became her new pastime with me. I became greatly discouraged and almost believed her words that I was wasting my time.
But day one it got really old. I realized that just because a person wants you to be unhappy, doesn't mean you have to be. So everytime she teased me, I would nod my head and walk away to silently draw pages of studies. The more I drew the more she mouthed off. The more she mouthed off the more I needed to draw. Eventually she had nothing more to say. I drew for myself and for other dedicated people's projects who played nice.

Sketches and paintings. I'm just curious does anybody else day dream a lot, for their ideas?

Here is a robot in progress, trying something new. Painting on top of a photo for textures. Bridgeman studies to help me out with drawing lips, thanks for the tip, Bunny!

I suggest bridgman's Constructive anatomy if you don't already have it. and yeah i agree with Listing watch the anime it can hold you back if your not careful.
Awesome studies pigeonkill .
That study of the muscle and skeleton: what is the source of your reference? Is it on the internet?
Very nice stuff! I like your pencils, and your papers full of sketch are very beautiful.
Keep sharing, cheers!
Listing: I been wondering that too...everytime I would want to draw a person I would perfer to draw it in anime style because it was more fun...made me happy I guess. I keep on drawing more faces and they seem to have less impact so I studied the skull and shapes and had mixed improvement.
Unbreakable: Thanks I actually got the big versions but I agree I should finish studyng the whole book. I do the studies to grow but the then I move onto the fun drawings...not sure if that's the best way to work.
JERI: For the Sarah studies it's from the book "Anatomy for the Artist" Most of the random faces I draw are from clothing Ads and a plastic skull I drew a million times. Jeri you have an awesome sketch book, comics and anime. The humor is just priceless in some of your comics.
Dreamworker: Thanks, I'll keep posting.
One Loomis study, skull study and anime...no no

You have some nice stuff, but the anime just makes me cringe every time i see it. Not because it's bad anime or anything, but i just feel anime is the antithesis to creativity. I just feels like it really tarnishes your otherwise great sketchbook. That's just personal opinion though.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

ArtZealot: I agree with you how drawing anime can pull away some creativity. The storying telling in some of the genre can be captivating. I'll continue to explore styles and not just get hooked on one. "It's not the style or school that counts, its how hard you train." Thanks
That fat kid: Haha, I think I have a better chance winning something from the lottery. Thanks
Two studies from refs, one portrait.

Very Nice! I see you have the Anatomy for the Artist book. I noticed some references you used. Thats a great book. May I recommend Dynamic Anatomy, a great book for references and ideas. Keep it up kid. Also, Anatomy for Fantasy Artists is an awesome one too. Rock on.
Spyplane: Thanks I'll be sure to check out those two books when I hit the book store.
Here is an updated version of a robot painted I started. Any ID gurus out there I can sure use some help, perspective kicks my butt.
