Well that's a pretty awesome first set of drawings. I can't even imagine what you could come with next. I love how you have a very wide range of styles here and judging by your sketches, you seem very disciplined as well.
Thanks Rikki, yeah I know I like experimenting with lots of styles of drawing! thanks for your comment

You wouldn't happen to be doing any mentoring would you? Cuz your stuff is seriously awesome and I could sure use the help.
Nice line work! i really think you have grasp on confident lines. well done. i also am appreciating the emotion conveyed from your simple characters. you seem to have no problem creating a simple image with an easily understandable meaning. Also, i agree on the standards here at concept art can be high, but hey, we all start somewhere. im trying to improve as well. i definitley think you could help me with my stuff.
Keep at it!
Just a quick update,
some sketches, and some Hogarth studies
By the way, my thanks to Jeff Hansen and Rikki for there posts!

Should have posted this yesterday....
I love the line quality on these here drawings.
really strong work here; I look forward to seeing what you post next
I honestly suggest you go all out and experiment with the digitals though. You clearly have a hang on things, it shows in your pencils.
Don't be afraid of doing something horrible digitally, just take a day or 2 off and just check out the wide variety of brushes and how nice and unique some of them might be, after you have found out the tools and unique qualities on the tools, you can take them and evolve them in to what you wish!
Definately a nice start, a good variety of styles.
Great stuff! Something to look out for
Hay guys, sorry I havent posted for a bit, but Im only just back from holiday.
So Il try to post something this afternoon.
my thanks to..
Tea Drinker-Thanks a lot, and relly nice sb by the way.
kelly x-Thanks for your kind words kelly.
Lakka-Cheers, yeah Ill start to get back to doing some digital stuff I think, Thanks .
and thanks to all
my thanks to..
Dannelf- Thanks mate, Its good to hear Im not the only one intimated by the art on this site
kelly x- Thanks, glad you like it.
Yeah sorry about that, my internet has been down for the last couple of days....so heres some new posts.
matty_mcmullen- Cheers bro, thanks for your support, and you have a really great sketchbook!
Right heres a super quick update...
Just a couple speed paintings, because as 'Lakka' said Iv really got to get back into doing some more digital stuff.
all done on photoshop, time taken about 20min for the first one...
25 for the second,
35 for the quick cowboy character,
and 15 for this guy.
And thanks again to all those who have posted.
Awesome line control. (which you have probably already heard by now)
As far as your digital renderings go, keep it up but try to avoid using white lighting. Experiment more with colors for your light-source.
My sketchbook ----> http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=111245
Nice range of work here - good to see all the studies - keep it up! Might want to spend some time on proportions.
Cookiedemon- thanks for you post and thanks for the tip about lighting!
kidult- Thanks mate, and yeah proportions have never been my strongest skill.
Just some quick sketches today...
You got some very cool stuff in here man. I loved that Leonidas , 300 FTW!
But you asked for crits, I also think that they're always very usefull so here you go with something:
The first led study you posted is, at my advise a little wicked, I mean legs follow a rithym like that of course but, not so curved, and the part of limbs ( not sure for that word, sorry for my bad english ) is too short and gone to the right , but it's nothing you can't fix hehe...
By for now 4 stars from me, I'll be checking ya !
Long time no updateÖ.
Iíve been away for bit, and come back to find Iíve missed out on this amazing thing called ĎDEEPí!
Oh well shit happens, but I didnít wont to miss out completely, so the other day I started to scratch down some ideas,
Hereís a few of them, there no-way near finished but hopefully Iíll get round to It some time.
I've just tryed out this amazing new program called Artrage.
I'm sure most of you already own or have used this cool program, and are laughing at my ignorance, but for those how havenít check it out herehttp://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html
Here's what I did just messing around with it for 15mins.
Really love the linework and shading in your pencil studies.
I smell stars coming your way!
hey man! its been forever but i finally have started gettting back into the sketchbooks. just happened to stop by and notice your recent update. like the aqua concepts. but i am really curious about the art rage stuff. honestly i think those simple experiments with that new program have demonstrated the most potential from what i have seen in here. never used it but i am considering. really nice techniques on the birds. i would like to see some life studies in here or some quick gestures to see how you can pick up quick information. keep it up! draw now!
And I'd like to thank...
kelly x-Yeah thanks kelly, and cheers for your continued support
Smeg Head-Cheers man glad you like, and thanks everyone...4 stars shit...thanks.
J.Hansen-Thanks for your post man, yeah the art rage stuff is really cool but I dont have the program yet myself.
PS- and your sketchbooks going really well man keep it up!
Just a quick update, some sketches and a some photoshop stuff,
sketches all done an old useing national geographic mag as reff.
cool I'l try to post some more later
i really like these new hatching techniques your doing. i need to try this. after all we need to study all aspects of drawing, and this style is really appealing to me anyway. i might even say it looks more imposing than some of your other stuff. i think you could get really good with that style, if you could i would like to see you do more of that. great job. keep the updates rollin'!
