Wow, You have some excellent stuff in here. I just went through you whole sketchbook after first checking out your portfolio. I have to tell you, your portfolio doesn't do you justice. Your painting style is awesome! You should consider showing it off more.
Really amazing stuff! really inspiring
your rendering is luscious *_*
Where did you go!!! Such amazing level of rendering and detail is mind blowing! Soon i must level up to your digital rendering level! Hope to see more soon. Really like those creature heads on the pervious page. Got some good ideas.
Been a long time since I posted anything here. Here's some stuff I'm working on for a new portfolio and some concept work/ui stuff from my last studio gig.
Here's some dinosaur skulls.
wow. first time in this thread, and it's awesome to see the improvement over the years. lovely, lovely work. thanks for the eye-candy.
purb36, thank you. You are too kind. I'm sorry you had to see those first 4 pages.
Here's a random piece of shit that I sort of hate, but what the hell.
no, sir, thank YOU. it's always nice to see the progression that people make. i'm really impressed by your command of values, as that's something i struggle with. we'all start somewhere. thank you for the crit, btw. if you have any more advice, i am all ears.
Ooh, values. I struggle with them too. I left a comment in your sketchbook about a value control technique I stole from a much better artist; maybe you'll find it useful.
Here are a couple more old, unfinished, unused concepts:
Some quick figure study sketch things of naked people.
another naked woman.

I really like the "boobs" work. It looks like a real photograph or 3D model from afar. I'm enjoying your work in general. You have very good rendering.
czyhyena: Thank you. I painted that shiny boob painting specifically to use as a thumbnail image for my sketchbook in a cynical attempt to attract more viewers. It's served me well. Thank you for the compliment about my rendering, too; actually, I think one of my big weaknesses is that I get too caught up in rendering. But I'm glad you think it looks nice, at least.
Here are some quick color studies. I should do more of these.

Fun casual game icons and buttons.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Excuse these repeated images. I'm going to update my portfolio thread in the jobs section, and I'm uploading the attachments here so I can use img tags there.

Here's some crap I'll probably never finish.
Whoa! That was a serious shift in your progression. I came for the Space Marine looking guys and stayed for the skill progression.
Following you now
Humble_Student: Thanks. I wince a little every time someone mentions those early pages, haha.
Some warm-up figure studies to get the day started. Trying to level up my brush economy.
I know you hear this all the time but where'd you learn to render like that?
Very awesome rendering! I think the only thing I can say about it is that the guy's proportions seems a little squished. His legs and bum seem good but just his middle and head seem squat. BUT that could be how the model is proportion wise. But the rendering is awesome! I wish I could render like that.
No worries, I imagine sometime having people look back at my early stuff and go.... whoa kid, nice progress.... Someday.
