Drooling over your pen sketches. Thanks for giving me ideas on how to get rid of my grey tone artist pens that I've had for years.
"All artists are prepared to suffer for their work, but why are so few prepared to learn to draw?"
MY SKETCHBOOK, COMMENT & CRITIC THE SHIT OUT OF ME
Do you have a smart phone? I have this app Genius Scan for my iPhone that works just as well as a scanner! You should try it out. I am sure there is something similar for Android too. It's really nifty!
Love those landscapes! And that hot air balloon! Fantastic imagination you've got there!!
Damn!! You can go pro no problem my friend, just focus on a portfolio alongside this serious practice. Your drawings are great and if keep applying the line control from architecture studies, which you are already applying brilliantly, mix with some basic and pleasing color choices, you'll be doing some killer stuff.
I agree you need to work on figure work. Your draftsmanship is top notch and one avenue for you would be to focus on drawing, you're beyond many newbies in the industry and drawing is what separates the pay scale, drawing is key, expressing a clear idea, more than any fancy coloring you're interested in doing right now. Drawing will get you work and keep getting you work, in any commercial art industry. You're on the right track.
But if you worked up a portfolio of 10-20 images in the quality and technique of the last post and post 18, that robot, you'd get work right away. Do full images also, mainly draw what it is you'd like to be paid for, characters, enviros, what have you. Draw a whole scene with characters in it and compose it so it tells a story, enter the weekly comps on this site for great briefs, and you'll be set, seriously.
I'd say you should focus on the types of images you are most inspired to create, and keep practicing anatomy, get anatomy down the same way you have drawing cubes and cylinders down.
Keep it up!
Oh yeah, I like the white on the sketches, I gotta go scan some pages of mine using that technique as well ha.
I don't have anything useful to add but I really just enjoyed looking through what's here so far. I am especially fond of the pen drawings, but it's all very interesting stuff!
Dude, your work is radical. I especially dig the marker and pen combo's plus your architectural stuff. Your digital works are getting better too.
@fersteger2 wow thanks man! very kind words and big boost for me to keep going, currently on my final University project for architecture so will be hoping to find work after that. Also I am now doing 45 mins of anatomy drawing a day to try and boost that side of things!
@Linzwinz thanks man, more pen stuff to come!
@MisterY cheers! and glad you dig the archy stuff
more boats and robots,gonna pick one of the thumbnails to work through tonight, I am asking people to vote on instagram so I don't just pick the one I want so it is more realistic of a client choosing for me @spudonkey if you want to vote

Man your sketches are really great, very funny thing you've got going. Less fan of the digital as I think you could reduce the number of strokes and use bigger brushes.
Keep it going!
Your sketches are top notch! Your designs are very pleasing to the eye. Don't have anything to say in terms of critique. Keep up the good work!
Sketchbook -- Any feedback helps!
very nice sketching ability that is certainly one of the artists most important weapons, your perspective its good too but i think it could use some work tho, your stylized characters and the attitude you put in the its amazing dude keep posting those !
also if you could share what mediums do you use? im not really into digital and am looking for a way to start color in my sketchbook without murdering myself in the tablet, still we will have to move to it eventually but i just love the slick sensation of running your pencil or ballpoint in newsprint its like orgasmic hahaha
keep it up man love yer stuff!
Wow im just at a lost of words for how outstanding your sketchbook is! All of the updates are amazing! Its great to see the amount of hard work you are putting into this. You will be pro in no time. Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!
Your pen and traditional color sketches are brilliant! Really enjoyed looking at your work. Keep up the good work.
Oh my glob, your style and linework is absolutely amazing-¬¬!! also, thanks again for stopping by mine!
P.s. oh how that Pyro-art made me miss TF2--! D:
I'll be here with the Daggers for the rest of my art journey.
Keep pushing people, let us be great together-!
@eroquii thanks man!
@lionheartGFX cheers for feedback! I will get on my perspective, something I always struggle a little with. As for materials Promarkers and pencil are the main tools I use for colour as well as the occasional digital disaster
@Joe777k7 thanks! I will keep it up
@iMigraine Thanks for stopping by!
@smrrfette Cheers! and no worries, your improving fast!

Im loving your style!
Awesome recent work!! I think you should color up some of your line drawings in photoshop, that way you're practicing digital coloring on a piece that's already good looking, so even if you aren't totally comfortable with the digital part, you'll still end up with a good piece, just keep coloring simple like your traditional stuff.
