Startin a sketchbook. Been saying I'ma start one for a few months now. Finally got a hold of a scanner at my brother's workplace so I got a few of em scanned. Will be updating hopefully often.
Little nude I did a good 2 months ago. Took I'd say about an hour or so. Close to an hour either way.
Will post more soon.

Umm image of a monster I did. I know it's a little hard to read and it's a little light but the main part I like is his big lip. Wanna kiss that thing all night long.
Deformities on his body makes it look kind of... weird but oh well.
Good thing you finnaly got access to a scanner. These pictures are great, the shading on the study really is well done, even though some areas are a little off such as the arm and collar bone. And for the creature, it has a very cool design, but its a bit hard to read on the face. And his belly button looks like it has a fruit jammed in . Great job, hope to see more soon!
Here's another little update. A self portrait I've finished but haven't got scanned yet. This is a progression of it a little bit. And it's a lollypop not a tumor. You can see the little stick accross my mouth. I started drawin with it in never really liked it but it gave me a little something extra to work on. Had to try to make the contour of my left mouth jump out atcha.
Bluemech- Thanks man I know I need to post more of em but I gotta get more recent ones scanned so I can get some crits on em.
LightKirtar- Lol I know you're used to those Domai girls. Ya that image didn't have a lot of major contrasts in it. I exaggerated on some of them but ya i do feel that I might have missed one of the shadows under the colar bone and such.
SiNE- Ya I use to be a total wimp with values a good 6 months ago. Wouldn't go lower than a 2 on the value scale. But now I'm trying to force myself to use dark values to really bring my pictures out. The regular average joe always likes the ones that have a lot of dark. They say wow before the picture is even fully exposed. Dark does get the juices flowing.
I feel that I need to work on figure drawings more. I need to try to make the figures as realistic as possible. I'm a realism nut. Thanks for all the crits guys. I'll try to update as much as possible.
This is a new one. Just some african dude I made up. No reference used for this one, probably explains some of the anatomy mistakes. But hope you like em.
Yo daunting good to see you finally get your stuff up! Your last drawing looks like some pretty solid anatomy knowledge to me at least. Some more darks would be good, but also try to focus your contrast around important areas of the image.
Little portrait I did. The left side of the face is messed up perspective wise. Any other crits will be welcome.
Thanks SiNE. Ya Im tryin with that anatomy. Hard remembering which muscles show better than other ones and different things.
Little thingamajiggers I did a while ago. Few months ago really. Liked the manga I was reading so I just drew something for it.
I know this is a crazy pic. Purposely made the eyes humungous just for fun. The nose is distorted too of course but lol I still kind of like it.
OLD OLD SUPER OLD pic I did a LONG time ago. Right when I got serious about art a good 6-7 months ago. Don't like this pic at all but oh well. And after i did it I did a little color in photoshop with it. Don't like that either barely finished.
This is a little work in progress. My probably second time trying out digital painting and it's a toughy. Having fun with it though. Bout to see if I can work on it more tommorrow. Love doing it.
Wholy Crap I didn't know it was THAT BIG SHEESH. When I get home Ima change it. Thought photoshop was going to resize it but dog...
And btw thanks argh, trying to work digitally with a mouse. Not the most comfortable thing.
Friend Elmf let me use the linework for me to work on my digital painting. I'm not even in the same realm of understand color theory to do this work without question of how the colors should work and everything. But hey it's a start.
One thing that stands out to me is that you shade right around your lines, rather then where the lights and darks actually are. (like in the second-down troll pic). Carefully compare that to a nude at the top that you drew from observation, i'm sure you'll see the difference. More observational drawing, _see_, don't just look. Keep it up.
Thanks Yutani... ya thought of that while doing him... but I didn't really see the relevance of it at the moment... Now I see that it's really relevant in most works of art. Bad part is I'm not looking at too many references while doing it... I probably have to rise up my reference usage for these pics.
Oh and I forgot about you some guy. Thanks for posting man, I gotta check out your sketchbook again think you should be on that list with all the up and comers. Improving like a psycho.
hmmm, interesting style of detail.
Do you know the muffinman?

Portrait from a long long long time ago. This is like the 5th page of my sketchbook and im near the 3/4th mark in present day. Hate this one but everybody that aren't artists seem to love it. Weird.
Oh ya don't look at the ear. Cover it up with your hand.
Van- Thanks dude I've always been a rendering buff before I even knew how to draw what I saw. I drew a crooked box then tried to render it for hours lol. Still not the best at it though.
MuffinMan- Thanks Muff, I have no idea what style you see but thanks lol.
warlock1234- Thanks man I love Vash the Stampede, show taught me a lot.
