My name is Joe. These are my sketches. Traditional media(pencil, pen, watercolor), in sketchbooks of varying sizes. Some from what I see and hear, others from what I think and dream. My scanner's not the best, but I'm making due. Enjoy.

Peace Joe, im digging your owls and rodents. Keep drawing regularly, its what im working on right now. Try to do as many drawings as you can per day. Of the profiles, i think the man with the hat is strongest. Im not sure whats going on with the image though. Post more studies.
ChaoticKnight - thank you, it's a pleasure to be here. I've even got a couple of my figure drawings in there this time.
.61803 - There's a couple drawings from one of the brimstone drawing club sessions in this update. They're gonna be at the palette & chisel this Saturday from 2-5pm. I won't be in attendance for this session, I got stuck working, but the models are fantastic. I'll be missing every moment of it.
It's been a few months since I started this. It's not that I haven't been creating things, it's just I haven't had a chance to scan them. Here are some selected drawings and doodles. Some life drawings, some doodles, some quick sketches and a color study. A variety of media was used including: conte, pastel pencil, colored pencil, graphite, carbon pencil, various pens and copic markers.
Comments and critiques are always welcome. Please enjoy.
After the initial sketch and grey scale rendering, I began my color study. It's about 6x8 on bristol board. Copic markers and acrylic paint were the mediums used. This is about as far as I'm going to take this particular one. I'm gonna be working this composition in 18x24.
Really awesome how you're experimenting with all the different mediums, I have to do that someday. From what I can tell, you have good figure studies, so nothing much to crit atm. I see the man on the bench in 026 and the guy with the hat as your strongest pieces. Keep posting and keep up those studies.
EvilBunny - Thanks for your input, it's much appreciated.
Here are a couple sketches from my pocket sketchbook. I don't spend a whole lot of time on these, but they give me ideas for other things. Doodles, less than 5 minutes a piece. I try to record as much information as possible in as little time as possible.
Eugie - Thanks for pointing that out. My next sketch dump will include some hand studies. It had occured to me that I needed to draw hands more, but now that you've pointed it out, it's glaring back at me. Thanks!
