Here are a lot of sketches and paintings done for myself in the past 6 months. Most of what I do for work I can't show, but I think I'm going to try and devote myself a little more to this sketchbook and conceptart.org in general. This site is so great, and I rarely post anything. From now on, that will change!
These are mostly just exercises, time to start actually designing.

Great stuff... Love the clearness of your lines... And I like that idea for your drawing club ad... Very nice!... And what's this "CHOW" you're talking about?...
LONG LIVE YOKO KANNO!!!
thank you. the idea was to kind of get all styles, even though it still is kind of similar in style...hmm. oh and CHOW stands for 'character of the week'. its kind of a contest here at concept art.org.
i really like your robot on deviantart, but I don't see anymore in your gallery...more robots! the one you have is awesome.
Welcome to CA!
Great stuff.... keep workin' with it... that life drawingin the coffee shop, very good... the depth to it looks awesome, and the outlines on the people add something neat... do you plan to do more with that piece or no?
Keep the posts coming! Good work.
I've been here for awhile but never though of posting anything because I don't paint digitally all the time..i primarily just do pencils and inked stuff, with occasional paintings. But I have seen a lot of great traditional artists on here so I decided to start posting and getting feedback. I've primarily been working on getting a job in comics, a very uphill battle...but helps with the draftsmanship.
As far as finishing that coffeeshop sketch, I thought about doing a digital painting over it, but I've moved on. I just don't have to time to sketch for fun anymore because of school.
Drawn from life..painted from head.

Ha, I didn't know you came here. I keep coming across other SCAD students here and at CGTalk. (This is Ryan from senior project.)
The tree and the creature design right before it look awesome... I have a feeling this will one day become a very excellent sketchbook. I'll be chekcing back more often for sure.
This is a drawing from almost two years ago that I've finally go around to coloring. Its just a WIP, but I'll make sure to post it when it's finished.
Awesome drawings going on in here man. On that last post, I would maybe position his feet a little different in the first and last pic, he has a little bit of a duck walk thing going on.
I'd love to see how you color these, it has a really cool watercolor feel to it, similar to Frezzato (Keepers of the Maser). Was this done in PS?
I'm also a big fan of the inkwork scattered about your book. Can't wait to see more stuff
I love when i stumble across these awesome new sketchbooks man. You got a nice touch when it comes to shading, and your lines are pretty rockin' too. I actually like this one the most though
-from life! That's awesome.
your skills is very good.
i like your style....
when you scan though?
looking through i was wondering
in your digital work how do you get your shit to look black and not pencil like ?
Danomight: You are so right. I wish I could say I was going to fix it. Thanks for the compliments, I love Frezzetto's work, sooo good. It's colored in PS, just kind layered, like watercolor, and I used some PS texture brushes. I wish I was cool enough to make my own, but I'm not that savy with it yet.
Sith: THanks, yeah I love drawing from life. I try to do it everyday, or at least have my sketchbook with me at all times in case I get bored, which is always bound to happen.
Metroeast:Thanks! I wish I could do more CHOW submissions, after I graduate I think I'll have more time, but we'll see.
Acro:I think a lot of dark lines are from ink. If I'm mistaken then its probably just me messing with the brightness/contrast slider in photoshop.
20-30 minute Lifedrawing today. Black Prisma. Done at the end of a 3 HOUR workshop on FABRIC FOLDS!! Such a blast....actually, not really. But the guy who lectured and demonstrated for us was the insanely talented and knowledgable Glenn Vilppu. And that was great.
And this is just some comic book stuff. Stuff I've been doing for classes. There are some problems with anatomy due to the fact that its all from my head. And also, the tommy gun is waaaaaay too small. I wish I had the movie Last Man Standing for reference, just saw it last night and it would have been perfect!
Sketched on location while I was in Rome a few months back. I just wanted to slap some color on it. Really just to mess around. Watercolor and gouache.
This is watercolor with a bit of gouache.
Good ol' Wolverine.
awesome stuff, like the water colours and wolverine
transitory: I will definitely try combining the two in the future. Will definitely be interesting.
I very like the start. Please, keep updating
