I will be starting my first year as an animation student this fall.
I have been coming to this site for many months and I have great respect for the artists that post here. Your works have continued to inspire me.
Please leave feedback if you can, anything would be greatly appreciated.
I hope you enjoy my work, and thank you.

Wanted to add a few more.
On a side note, it is so weird posting in the same place as some of my personal heroes.

These are some in class drawings.
Thank you FourTonMantis.
keep up with the studies man, looking really nice so far.
Looks really good. Nice anatomy studies.
hey man, i enjoy seeing your construction lines, and plane layouts. The first few posts also have a nice graphic addition to them, which is great. Keep it up.
Sketchbook!! Please help me improve!
Really strong work in here. I especially like the second kid, the one in profile. Great expression. Also--if you've got rougher stuff, we'd love to see that too. Looking forward to more updates...
Here is a progression on a neutral emotion painting. It corresponds to the previous eye painting, the one that expressed excitement.
I want to thank all of you who posted your kind and encouraging words. I Will be posting on tour threads very soon if not already.
BOth sets of eyes are great. Solid construction, nice expression. Are these going to be taken to a more finished level? Also--are you going to continue the series?
Wow, you being "new" or not, these are totally controlled and refined. I especially like the more iconic one you're using for your avatar; it's got potential to live on as some sort of cool mural that would put the tacky ones next to it to shame.
That last set of eyes is also pretty rad. This is probably just a coincidence, but in the last of the photos, the color of the table is very close to the color of the skin around the eyes, so it looks like they're actually holes in the paper that the eyes are peeking through. What if you zoomed out and added drawings with fingers poking through in the same way, to practice some of the gestures Illgnosis was talking about?
Sedig: yes I will be finishing the set. The third one will be Aggression.
illgnosis: Thank you, you are right. I will post more quick sketches and gestures.
Frogisis: Thank You, here is a second in the same style as the profile pic. This one was hand drawn, then cleaned up in photoshop.
Quick question: how do you change the pic next to your thread in the sketchbook forum?
I created a profile pic , but that one is not the one that shows up.
Any help would be appreciated.
Flamable, thank you, and I am twenty.
These are a few arm and leg studies.
well done leg and arm studies, keep up with the books To help answer your question, in order to show a tumbnail at the beginning of your SB thread you hav to have the choosen image attatched to your first post.
Sketchbook!! Please help me improve!
Thank you so much Kidape, Now I have it set up the way I want it. I had to shift a few things but I got it. Thank you again.
Hmm, instresting ( I hope I spelled it right), your pencil work is amazing and I love your element of design, its really constructive, yet free flowing, post more.
Look, Iam diet drama, want to spend tha night dont bring pajamas, man there's so much heat beneath clothes, you see me !
JesArt Sketchbook, go have a gander..
Here are three pieces covering Direction, Shape, and Size. I will finish these.
Good work on the hands, but I think the one in the upper-right corner of the first drawing could use some work. It's a difficult pose, but with the fore-finger pointing toward the viewer it should probably be larger, with more pronounced foreshortening. This is a bit of a judgement call, but I would say, when it comes to foreshortening, error on the side of more foreshortening rather than less. If you push it too far it will give your drawing an exaggerated, dynamic look, but if you don't push it far enough your drawing will look misshapen and flat.
Keep up the good work.
JesArt - Thank you.
Peter k - Thank you, you are right, it will look better when I fix the finger. I did not see that. Thanks again.
Delmar - You are right about the index finger in the size painting, slightly off but it will make a big difference. Thank you.
Here is one I did today. Even with my tiering schedule, this site gives me a lot of motivation.
i think maybe you should have pushed the contrast a little more in that last one.
I like your graphical pieces too, you seem to have a good eye for shapes.
Diggin' the Ditch?
Here are three murals.
The first I designed and lead 50 people in painting, in a north Philadelphia rec center.
The second I co designed and lead 80 people in painting, in a west Philadelphia elementary school.
The third I designed and lead 20 people in painting, for a New Hampshire middle school.
That, is inspiring. Those eyes are brilliant, I would love to see the top few finished off. Your style of pencil sketching/rendering is a lot different to mine and I enjoy looking at it. Gona go and paint now.
amazing detail work....love the pencil stuff the most ...post more
Please visit my sketchbook ….I love the feed back
