:kick to the face:
I can't believe that I haven't seen this thread until now. Ted, everyone else has already covered the compliments I have about your work. Saying that browsing through your sketch book has been more than a humbling experience. I already knew that I wasn't that good, now I know that I suck. Please, for the love of god, post more when you can.
I wrote replies to you guys, but these forums are messed up so there gone.
Here's a page of sketchy sketches.

This stuff is extremely good.
I saw on your site you work(ed) for playstation, on wich games?
beware my avatar is cooler then my drawings
amazing work you got here! Props for everything you're doing.
vareo - I worked on the Sony PSP Game "The Con." I also just finished work on a Playstation 3 game, but I can't talk about it. Thanks so much for the compliment.
Red_Rook - Hey Ben (I think that's your real name). Yeh, it's probably the rate that this sketchbook thread moves nowadays. Thanks for popping in...I appreaciate it.
brkofdon - Thanks. I don't know if it's a good thing, but I'm glad others might dig it.
Orozc0 - Thanks so much for the props. I'll put them in my purse and save them for a rainy day.
Here's an exploding high-five done with no reference.

Mort - Hi Mort. I think your referring to the post from 1.19.06 or maybe the pages at the beginning of this thread that arn't scanned very well (values arn't as dark as they should be). Either way, thanks for the comment. I will keep it up.
archipelago - Thanks. There are a couple ways to find the sleeping model. I have always had a hard time going to sleep, so I am usually the last to pass-out. I use the advantage of insomnia to either talk without end, spewing diarea, until they send a message to their body to let the muscles that hold the eyelids up to call it a night or I just dress in black pajamas and carry a black sketchbook with a black painted stealth mission pencil (which includes a black eraser and black stained wood) to sneak and draw them in the still of the night.
I learned the later from my study at the Shaolin School of the Fine Arts.
...here's a drawing. Can someone let me know how to change the name of my sketchbook. I used to just edit the title of the first post, but that doesn't care anymore. Please drop some gritty hood-ridden knowledge.

hay awsum stuff man !
to change the sb title when you go to edit on the firt post in the thread it pulls up the thread to edit .... at the bottme of the edit box theres some options .. one is <go advanced> click that and it will put you back to the old edit where you can change your title
Icey - Thanks. I'll try.
liam.c -Thanks. I tried your suggestion and the first post gets renamed, but it doesn't change the name of the entire thread. If there are any more suggestions, I'd be glad to hear em. I'll try again right now.
Here's some sketches for the Sony PSP Game "The Con." Figured I post em here since they're sketches...old as shit, but still sketches in a sketchbook. I posted them in "It's Finally Finished" with some production work, but apparently nobody cared that I finally finished these. It's a sad story.

Your drawings are simply amazing. The shading awesome and so is the anatomy. Would maybe like to see you push your faces to more a realistic style. Sometimes the eyes seem a bit off (too far from the nose) to me but I'm usually an idiot so I could be wrong there. Great job.
Placeboast - Thanks for the response. Glad you like the pictures. I feel the same way about this stuff. I've always preferred the wide-set eyes on certain fashion models and seem to exaggerate that in my work. One of the things most figure drawing books agree on is the fact that eyes need to be one eye width apart...but once you start studying the portraits in the world around you (the public person, figure models and the measurments in realist paintings) that is a very general rule. I still need to get more picky with feature placement in my figure invention.
This is a study from a model session that was celebrating Fat Tuesday.

I saved some of your pics to study from, great work!
I can't get enough of those demons though, do you have more of those ??
always a pleasure too see new works from you, ted. the sitting nude with the hat + glasses is absolutely gorgeuos. thanks for the inspiration.
Unbreakable - Thanks.
Jarri - That's quite a compliment. I do want to inspire like others inspire me, but please do focus your attention on the masters.
Recursive_End - The sketchbook section is quite a market of threads...makes me wish someone would make a "best of" for this section alone. Who knows how many great sketchbooks we're missing out on. Thanks.
Summer Pudding - Thanks for the compliment. I'm used to seeing your posts on this forum...you've got some great work.
cakeypigdog - Glad to spread some cheer. Don't let things get you down...fight sadness...take a bite out of the ass of life.
Setherial - Thanks. I do have more spooky monster designs, but I'm hesitant to post them. We'll see.
Jeff Jaws - Hey pal! I'll check out your book and reply...your improvement was outstanding the last time I looked. Thanks for being a familiar character in this thread.
