Some nice character design here, but my favourites are those enviros. Your coloring schemes are awesome.
Keep on sketching!

Hey, I've figured out how to post older attachments! Yay!
CHOW 125 (I think):
Self-portrait for Self-Portrait Day (photoref):
Started working on the mummy for Hallowe'en CHOW:
But decided to go with more stylized movie monsters instead. Here's a stab at Dracula:
I'll be working on some more movie monsters next, then maybe a few old CHOW designs, and then I should probably get back to environments, since I need the practice and people seem to like them. Thanks for the comments, everyone!
Great sketchbook! I'm really digging your character designs, especially the caricatures. =)
I particularly like your pen and maker environment studies. There's a great energy and flow to them. Keep 'em coming! =D

I really like your fun style, your caricatures are so awesome! I feel though that they could be stronger if you put more gesture in them. Even your last female figure doesn't seem to really be standing and seems off-balance, but in your characters it seems all a little too stiff. Create more movement in the pose and there will be more interest, but also to really get into that feeling of movement. Keep at it, your style is pretty unique!
@hopebay - Thanks! I should get back to doing the environment studies. I need the practice!
@majortom - The ref for that figure was definitely odd. I think I didn't throw her hip out to the side enough. I'll have to correct it when and if I do a cleanup. Thanks for the suggestions for things to work on!
Did a lot of sketching this week but I'm really behind on scanning and I can't find half the stuff I want to scan in the great pile of paper.
Something that will likely make a good illo:
And some sketches from life from earlier in the year:
Just some rough & unfinished stuff to prove I haven't been a complete slacker. Have two acrylic paintings in progress and at least one digital pic, but work is sloooow.
@GoGoJo - I don't know how some people manage to scoot around in high heels in the winter. It's like a broken leg waiting to happen! I can't even walk in those things on solid ground.
Aaanyway. I've been half-slacking. Actually, I've mostly been slacking at scanning.
A couple comic characters:
A few more sketchies.
Mermaid from last summer. Sat around by the harbour, sketching while my guy played guitar:
Screwing around with Harmony:
Some animal characters, maybe for a kids' comic:
The first painting I did on my own after taking Painting I:
Lately I've been playing around with making weird idol-inspired paintings:
And a little ACEO (ink, markers and pencil crayons):

More acrylic paintings heading to an art fair later this summer:
Alot of Questions:
Something I never managed to finish in time for the Movie Monster CHOW:
And Andromeda for CHOW 201:
@Metal Fingers - yeah, I think the composition could have used some adjustment. I forgot to ink its other fin, too. Live and learn!
@AustenFM and zou - thanks a bunch!
Some more Chow attempts:
Chow 200 (Monarch of Music):
Preliminary design for Chow 203 (Rosie the Necromancy student):
Final for Chow 202 (World Fighting Tournament):
And a crummy speedpainting that didn't quite work out but I needed to get out of my system. No ref.
