first you need a host who "hosts" your pictures. free Imagehosting is something you will find at photobucket.com
than you have to type in the following "code" (IMG)http://URL of our image(/IMG)
NOTE= Replace the )( aginst 
I'm sure there's an answer in a thread for this somewhere, but it's no trouble! And besides, the people here are nice! I use www.imageshack.us for hosting my images... you go to their site, click browse, pick the file you want to upload, and then copy the HTML code into your post and there you go!
Hope this helps and welcome to CA!
That posts a thumbnail, there should be a tag for the actual image... and you don't need the html tags you added... usually people don't like thumbnails because if there's a lot it's hard to flip through a sketchbook, but that's very correct so far!
That's an awesome image, but try not to exceed 800x800 pixels. You can lower the filesize without losing in quality in PS... always nice to have small as possible files for the dialup kids, like me, haha.
Theme of the day: Starcraft
Saw a drawing like this one so i drew my own version.
thought this up outta my head.
also saw one like it so had to draw it .
These others were inspired by the the art in the game booklet

Hey, thanks for checking out my stuff.
You have lots of cool stuff here. I especially like the skull (both versions) and the tower defense stuff. Cool poses on them.
Keep it coming.
wow, cool line works dude. diggin through your style.its awesome.
Thx for visiting my sb.
Try using photoshop or corel painter. U should try using wacome dude. Ur gonna have alot of fun with it, am sure of that. BUT, dont forget your drawing with pencil. ITS REALLY IMPORTANT.
Post more dude. keep it up.
keep doing what you're doing. something to try iinstead of drawing the videogame characters that you see, work from photos of real people and make them into concept art. Like take a good photo of a football player and change his pads and helmet into space armor. or use the photo as the basis for the pose of one of your robots guarding tower 13.
Always awesome. Keep it coming. Hey, draw more of those robots, but use your wacom board. I will post some of my crap stuff later, but I am busy working on my computer troubles.
Thanks for looking at my artwork everyone!
Moonstriderguy- that skull has been reworked like crazy...drawin in 98, inked in 2002, then dotified in 2005, oi...
Bugg- you better get your stuff on the net! if a goof ball like me doesnt mind it , then why should a o so serious person like you have any trouble?
Bwksomthingorother- yeah, i have tried doing that with a photograph before, i will do that more often, thanks for takeing your time out to pay a visit
Heroic- i have heard of painter and a bunch of different programs, i also own a wacom mabye il post my wacom creations, there quite creepy, thanks for takeing a gander!

Completely original, inless you guys/gals can see somthing that looks sounds, and acts like it then it is completely original. a project spanning 8 years...reworked over and over, from the ground up! only 1 part stayed the same, the main character focused on so far being gafmar gaffer a young goblin and his unusual life in pangia. I will talk more on this subject at a later time, o and there are no humans at all. except one but that can wait till later. If anyone wants to know anything just IM me. unlike the other posts this theme of the day will be reposted again, with more images ..way more.

delfie...youll find out later.
You've got some nice stuff in here, man. Definately have an imagination on you! Just continue to develop your skills by drawing as much from life as you can. Some studies (anatomy, perspective, etc.) would help you out quite a bit too. Maybe put your creations in environments? Also, work on laying down those values. Some of the pen stuff is neat but your pencils need some work. Very thumbnailish. Not bad but not developed enough. I'd say that work from life and refz will help you a bit. Just keep at it. You're definately going to get somewhere if you keep working hard. Great work thus far.
Not long ago I bought the half-Life:raising the bar, book that contains a bunch of info on half life and half life 2, not to mention a few mods . Well I decided i wanted to draw all the monsters shown in the book, because i just love there design. ( if not every single thing in the book!) Yeah so none of these were made up by me, all redrawn from screen shots from the game, or drawings they had. Ya ya ya i know dont do that but i just had to! so take a gander!
2002 scribble scrabble
these 3 were drawn from screen shots, and the freeman one was outta my head. ;D
ZebzFree- thanks for the critq! i will work on my penciling, and try to toss in some enviornments .
Remember everyone! everything you say I read and do think about!!!!
I like the tryle, very cartoonish, very keen! =D
Awesome energy man -- keep this up everday and you'll be trippling your skills before you know it : D
It's always great to meet a Starcraft fan --- man 4 years of my life belong to that game
keep your energy, always carry your sketchbook with you, and always have some printed reference --- that's how I bulked my mental-reference-library --- just always have photo-images you can draw inspiration from.

Sammy- thanks for takeing a look! il keep useing referances , and try to draw every chance i get! ( not that i dont do that now )
MISC! most of these are from a year ago, or 2 years or 3 years! verious themed pictures, even some still lifes! O MY! take a gander, its coraazay..not really.
I used referance for donalde, and thats about all , the rest were all outta my head or the still lifes!
Defintely progress here.
I especially like the glasses
If you want to develop your character drawings to an advanced level
you have to go for anatomy!
Do some studies,
try www.saveloomis.org (you may know the books!)
Its all about practice, concentration, knowing your tools and well... practice once again!
Keep it on!
i like all your sketches and like the other guy said. a lot of imagination in here. Keep it up. Maybe you can finish some part of your sketches? I always like that look of a sketch where there is a bit of it that has been taken to the final penciling stage. I guess the question would be: which bit? *S*
we've already talked about this and ill be repeating a lot of what has been said. definetly work on your core subjects in art like anatomy and doing a lot of studies. you have the ideas but they wont be as executed correctly unless you have all those fundamentals down. baby steps!
focus on one thing at a time draw a bunch of still lifes! drawing from life is huge! you'll improve dramatically if you do this all the time. drawing from photos and things of that nature are also beneficial! always keep observing and think about why things interest you...analyze and break things down... be a sponge
keep looking at other great artists and analyze their work..dont be afraid to ask questions either..
anyways just keep drawing. you've got some interesting ideas, but just keep pushing. if you see a flaw in your drawing fix it! dont leave and get lazy.
Definately good stuff in here, interesting designs.
Try to do some anatomyreference drawings too and if you have the chance try to draw from life, it will train your observational skills.
Keep the energy!
Hey got some new stuff I see =D.
The Donald's feet are a bit big, other than that right on. (Go KH!)
Keep up the enthusiasm!
hey man mice illustrations i can definitly tell your into this stuff! keep on drawing ma friend!
----try this! try spending more time on one piece... or make a scene with a couple charcters that you so finely crafted... give it a foreground and backround color motion like as if it was a finished illustration for a comic book! ...yeah thats what i really want to see you do!
study anatomy and shading techniques... don't be afraid to take some classes to boost your studio art skills and keep drawing you have a nice head start on this thing!
heres some randomossity of last week...oi! dont worry you guys who posted a message or two, i will have somthign to say to you in a bit, first i need to update this stuff!
From what I can see, you have very good design elements, however, you need to work on composure- the actual drawing itself, not just teh concepts. I cant really C/c on that part, you gotta life draw your way out of it! =D Kerep going man!

Right now im selling my computer, and anything else i really dont need so I can pay off college a little easyer and not end up with ZERO dollers after words ( whew) I am in the process of scanning numerous drawings which i will be putting up soon,( I hope) but theres so many drawings that it has taken a while to scan them in, and it will take a while to put them up ( Grr) but it will be well worth it in the end...and yes I have been drawing...alot SO! look forward to MANY MANY drawings in the next update.....
Very nice drawings man.
Thanks for the comment, and yes I am a huge fan of Battle angle alita, this manga gave me so much ideas.
PS:I heard online, some body is making a live action movie of Battle angle alita now, it will be out on 2006 or 2007.
