Hey man! Right now the lion looks pretty soft, teddy-bear kinda style. Try to let there be more bones seen, the ribs and shoulders etc. Dont know if your looking for that but that could make it seem more natural, not fat, hungry and scary Also a less normal light situation might help look more natural...Just thoughts. Keep it up!
Flipnastywebby: Thanks, I still need a lot of practice drawing women...that and it's fun.
Dreamworker: Thanks glad you like!
AmontilladoAg: Np. I'll try to watch out the positions of the leg. Whenever I get stuck on a pose for a person I can always jump in front of a mirror. But with animals...well not so successful. haha.
Grandmassa Mr. Spect: Thanks
Sirio_Brozzi/Pascallo: That reference will be of great help. I see what you mean by the mountain lion being a bit on the meaty side. He's a bit to pamper to be in the wild, less natural to look at? So showing some of the rib and bones would be great. I'll try to get those changes in.
Thanks for all your comments and Patience. I been very busy and I also had jury duty right before halloween...MEH!!! But here is what I been working for at East Bay. Many fun animals, I'm learning a lot.
I love the first image of the last update, I found it very professional work!
I like your pencil stuffs.
The random bulge-eyed anime characters now and then are like.. random .__.
My Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom
There's really nothing to see here yet.
Progress is a difficult thing
Sirio_Brozzi: Thanks, for the ref and patience I made some adjustments on the lion. It's more lean and mean...
Dreamworker: Thanks for the support. Still learning a lot about animals. Just the other day I was painting an eagle and I was almost done when I suddenly found out that eagles had four claws not three. All the photo reference I used were small so it looked like it had three claws. Whew. For each animal I paint I really wish get to see it in life, from a safe distance of course.
o00o0o0o0o0o: Thanks, here are more bug eyed anime. I wish I had more time to draw for fun. Here is fan art for Ragnarok Online, It's Stalker Class Character who's fighting Pest monster with stone curse.
Thanks for all the comments. Happy Turkey Day.
Note to self...I really need to do some fur studies : /
Lion looks better already! Still a little soft in my eyes - are the legs (esp. the front legs) a little too thick?
Yeah the owl comes along nicely already. Keep it going!
Sorry for the lack of updates I been busy with a lot of projects and I took a lot of your guy's advice and work more on paneling/story. Big thanks to Jeri. I'm excited to work on my first children's book project. Pamela Schmidt and Tom F. Dodd were kind enough to let me show some of the progress of a children’s book. It’s about sea otters who had a bit too much adventure out in the sea and run into trouble with a oil tanker. Let me know if thumbnails read clear. Images 7-10 skip a bit because they are on budget. It's my first children's book project so I want to get it right, hopefully everything read smoothly. I'll try to squeeze some personal projects in to, to show for fun. THanks

Working a character model sheet. If you see anything out of place let me know. Thx
Here is the colored version of the mouse girl character sheet. If anybody has any suggestions on the color selection let me know. Also a Bouguereau study, he's awesome and some random sketches.
What a lovely SB, your studies from Loomis und S. Simblet are very impressive and as well inspiring. i´m subscribing to this one so keep up the good work.
Your human anatomy studies are amazing and really show through your work. The cartoons and illustrations are fantastic, I really can only crit on your animal anatomy. From your human anatomy studies I'm sure you'll power through it
Great stuff keep posting!
Azalin, Thanks Loomis was always a great help and I'll continue to use him as inspiration.
hedwordup, Studies helped me a lot but can be boring so I mix them up with cartoons to had more spring to my drawing and have fun.
remmy, Thanks I'll keep posting. I'm glad you like my illustrations and I hope to improve with your guys feedback.
Here is a robot painting in progress and if I clicking I'll keep running with it. Some random Kangroo studies from reference from the net. It's such a treat to watch boxing kangroo beat up in unsuspecting owners with frenzy and grace. Some life drawing an notes from Robert Beverly Hale video lectures. They very fuzzy videos but they are packed with a lot of information. If knew of them I would have watch them earlier.
very nice, your pencil studies are very impressive, and it seems your getting the hang of this digi stuff as well. Keep it up!
christ: Thanks! I'll keep posting.
Here are some more Robert Beverly Hale study. Sketch of a succubus...I guess. I'm still enjoying painting my favorite tool is the palette knife. It also has nice oil brush but I like using the real thing, even though I hate the clean up...haha. I'm not sure which looks more interesting for the robot concept? It with the rough painterly background or more of blank bg? I still would have to clean it up a bit though the right. Left or Right looks better?
Thanks for your comments.

that flying robotic warrior is looking cool
Here is a painting in progress of Thor. I have been reading a lot on Norse Mythology. It is very interesting. When I get better at painting I want to paint Valk's. More figure drawing. A sketch from SketchCrawl event. On the last painting. I'm trying to find subtle way to break away the skull foreground from the figure. I added some textures not sure if that was good enough.
Check out this great tut on paper digital paper cut outs. It's fun.
Hey man, the winged bot looks pretty cool, i would prefer a more vivid background, maybe the left one but not THAT busy. maybe somthing in between?
The last piece is great - cool composition style and fresh colors.great contrast of clean and bright and dirty and dark. great job man!
Pascallo, Thanks I'll try something in between the background for the robot.
Here is updated on Thor painting. I'm struggled a bit so I hit the grayscale and focus on the values. I'm not too happy with the helm.
Pascallo: I think you are right. Something more vivid but simple so the robot will pop out?
Whew, I'll starting new job around June2th on site so I'll try to dump what I have right now. I hope they take to my artwork and meet their needs. So here are watercolor sketch of my character Emma the witch, figure drawing, and random sketches. Not happy how I draw cartoon spiders, going to take another stab at that...
OMG more amazing stuff
I like that you've started to use textures in your digital work (ie newspaper)
Nice water colour attempt too, I really like your built environment doodle with a
lil bit of wash. And all your studies are coming along nicely, Kangaroo yey.
I also really like your one winged robot its sweet as. Keep posting
Thanks Remmy. I'll keep trying to post, though I'll be busy with a full job starting tomorrow doing concept work.
Here are some drawing. Study from Sargent, fanart from Ragnorak there's contest for rRO game server to do a splash screen not sure I have time to enter, ...and my own anime characters for fun, figure drawing.
That robot background is looking better now, also that you pitched the robots colors a bit. nice.
