So here is a demon i made up. Been having trouble drawing but this came out of no where which was really cool. I just started drawing again after stopping for a couple of years.
Here is the same drawing except with a quick color in photoshop

I also thinking of making more of this concept for a demon class
Well, I'd say make sure you get the anatomy down as best as possible, draw from real models and bodybuilder photos... his pose seems kind of stiff, and once you have the greatest understanding of the human form you can do much more dynamic postures. The idea, I'd say is really cool, kind of World of warcrafty. Welcome as well.

Thanks for the feedback, yeah usually those ears make it resemble a night elf lol. Thanks for the advice and you are right about figure drawing. I have that class in a few weeks. I also got this anatomy that i want to start studying.
cool start for your sketchbook dude
get your hands on some loomis/bridgemen books theres some free ones you can find on google. Copy them front to back
just keep it up, study everything photos, life, your favorite artists, anything that looks cool to you.
have a good one man
sketchbook updated October 6th
Thanks alot man, i still got a long way to go but i hope i get better and better, im doing game art & design at college. I actually been sketching stuff from your sketch book, you have some amazing sketches. I also did a picture from Frazetta. I never heard of this artist before until you mentioned it in your sketchbook. Here is what i did today real quick
Okay so today i did some drwing and had another wack at photoshop. Really starting to enjoy digital painting. I looked at this zombie picture from imaginefx and got pretty close to it here.
Very good stuff so far, you're character concepts are very good as are your creatures. Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see more.
I think the issue with your perspective study is that your vanishing points are too close together. They need to be at 90 degrees. Otherwise you get distortions. This is really easy to do. Just take a triangle measure and wherever the two points meet from that on your horizon line will be the vanishing points. That is the super basic way to do it anyway. I need to refresh my perspective knowledge actually. Anyway, keep going and def study anatomy.
Hey thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. And don't stop drawing man. I've stopped drawing too, and it is my greatest regret. Luckily I found a way to get back on track. There are great artists here and they would be a wonderful inspiration for us to keep drawing.
About your drawings, I think you (and me, too) should start with the very basic figure studies first, how to draw the hands, the face, etc. then we can go up to more complicated things like foreshortening and stuff.
You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?

ISTMIN52: Thanks alot for the comment, yeah that perspective drawing was from a perspective class a few months back. It was my first two point perspective drawing i ever did. lol
I see what your saying and i will try that method out you said. I got alot on y to do list lol Thanks!
JUSTINKHUONG: Thanks alot for the support, i am taking a life drawing class write now and we are doing alot of stuff i never done before. Im really starting to get out of my bubble now. lol your right, we need to hit up that anatomy big time. I got my hogarth book so im going to go at it. Im about to get a bridgman soon.
So lately alot of what i been doing is drawing what is in other peoples sketchbooks on here. Its amazing the talent on here, i also been practing anatomy and perspective. Not enough though. Still havent been getting much inspiration lately. But anyways, here is an update i did based off a real life picture in the industrial folder on concept org. Hope you like it!!
Didnt use a ruler lol
So here is some more i been doing as well as my small first two steps in life drawing class. The first is a star wars comic i made real quick by looking at the tv screen while pausing it. It was a cool little experiment that i plan to do more often.
Okay so i been doing some really cool studies for my life drawing class and figured i would post them here.
Here is a picture i did for an assignment. I looked at this picture from the hogart book i got for the right side then i look at a anatomy book for the muslce part. The left side i did with two pens and the right side i did with a 2B and 6B pencil
Conte Crayon pelvis study
Another update, scanned in a bunch of stuff from my sketchbook. My drawings usually contain half reference and are half original. Studies and so on as well.
Not too pleased with this one but it looks pretty cool. Very warped due to how close the vanishing points are.
Okay so one more update for tonite.....its not the best work but i hope to get better some day. Alot of this is from my mobile sketchbook. Also i wanted to included two old oil paintings i did back in 06. Oh as well as my pumkins me and my finacee made and my guitar.
OIL PAINTINGS FROM 06!!!!!!!!!
Last things........some digital studies
Looked at a picture from a book i got. Made up the color and shadows though
Original i made
Study from a picture online

I doubt anyone will even see this but i figured i'd post anyway.
Soooooooooooooo here is some new studies i been doing, even got one i drew from Henchman21's sketchbook(great artist). I even got this really cool skull drawing i did even though the right eye is warped. Little mistake lol. Also, if anyone reads this, anyone got advice on what art school to go to? I was thinking Ringling in Florida.
Quick update here, maybe get some comments, maybe maybe .....maybe?
Been doing alot of Bridgman and hogarth studies, post later. Still trying to find a school and working on my talking to air skills. Getting good.
Quick digital thing i made up wih photoshop and some studies and life drawing thing from 09.... Also an old o6 picture of an embro from the comickers book.
QUICKly drawn comic
I did everything except the story was done by my fiancee.
thank for your kind words though dont be so hard to your self,
good drawings and paintings and dont worry about talent or time, just paint and use all the little freetime you have without castegating yourself so you will become a great artist!
and post your hoghart studies im really interested how these turned out, and try to draw and paint from life as much as you can it helped and is helping me alot
greetings and keep posting on and on!!!
xbert: Thanks alot for the comment man. I feel really inspired to draw now just from that. I will follow your advice man! Im still working on the hogarth studies. Im trying to get them down with the blue and red pencils like in the picture from the book. Are you in a band man?
Here are some bridgman studies!
Also i got a big 11 by 14 sketchbook just for anatomy!
Here is a picture of it, next to a finch picture im working on. (had to add the progress.
Also, a really cool 10 min digital still life of my finacee Casey from last nite. I never did anything like that before, alot of fun doing it. I love digital painting. I really need to do more from life and photos.
seems that your in a constant flow - just keep it on
i think your on the right way so never stop drawing draw at least one piece a day
an keep an eye on shading your lines are gettin better and better i think shading is your weakest point at the moment (dont get me wrong, this doesnt mean that your shading "sucks" )
and yes im playin guitar and keys in an instrumental progressive rock band called "increditunes":
we're going to record our first album in may this year if your interested ill inform you when its done!
well i think that playin scales depends on your technique not on your string-count (i also play a seven string sometimes) dont sweep to much, alternate picking is the only way to set you free from metal-clichees is there some way to hear something from you/your band?
and draw more you didnt update for a long time if you want to become really good you need a constant flow - so give me some shading studies so ill see if im good enough to give you some crits!

XBERT: Thanks for pushing me man, you got me working a little faster. I feel like drawing even more when someone comments me. Sweeeeeeet! What kind of things do you think i should draw for studies in shading? Give me some links. Dude your stuff sounds great, ill comment you with a link to my stuff. Ill try to keep my posts constant. Thanks man!!!!!
SUBLIMUS: Thanks alot for the comment. Yeah every since i joined this site and got my ass kicked by other artists i realized, man i was going the wrong way. Now i hope to get back on track. Ill check out stuff in a bit man thanks!
so i got an update, some hogarth studies to start off with, then some bridgeman. After that just some sketchbook stuff. Some original and some studies from other artists. The hogarth studies are a little off in proportions and color. Anyone know what exactly he usues to do the pictures from his book?
Okay so i am starting to do animation in flash, havent got to far yet but hopefully one day i can post some of the results. Went to philadelphia yesterday and did some quick sketches while i was there. Nothing to serious due to time. Also i wanted to include my psp go, it is sweet. I also got a picture i did digitally for a class i got and a quick sketch from troy. Not too good. Back too studies!
