Well, the time has come to stand up and take some stripes.
I am 24 yrs. old and a concept artist in the games industry. I hope to use this book as a swift kick in the ass. The goal is to never post old stuff, just the new, and hopefully track some progress. Comments and crit will always be welcome.

I have this thing about rabbits... Crazy I know, but a good excuse to work on creatures. I let them multiply and replenish my sketchbooks. I think it started after seeing some of Michel Gagne's wonderfully creative stuff. I wanted to see how far I could push it, and haven't been able to stop.
Great little monsters!
The one in the bottle is my favorite, seems like you know what you're doing.
Your colors are ok and values look solid but I think your backgrounds need work. Also let's see some things other than modified rabbits : ). Good start though, look forward to seeing some more man.
Thanks for comments! i'll be taking the bg more into account when painting characters.
Great stuff! Very cool concept with a great pencils and a very good painting skills! I want to see much more of this quality pices!
The actual sketchbook scans are a real pleasure to look at. Hope to see a lot more of those!
Those sketches rock, please post more of them, or ill tell my mommy, and she's dentist !!!11one
Wow, I didn't expect such a kind welcome. Thanks for the comments, I do take them into account. These sketches are for a really big freelance job, lots of character design and development. The client has given permission for me to post the work in progress. I'm excited to see where this project will lead.
UUUUmmmm....this is a very good SB!!!Your pencils are reeeeally good!!
Just starting to mess around with some of the gestures, and seeing where they will lead me.
woot! these are gems! great critters and characters - you should do creature of the week (COW) and character of the week (ChOW)....
you'd fit right in!
There is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "i" in meat pie. Meat is the anagram of team...~Shaun "Shaun of the Dead"
Thanks, thats a good idea. i'll look into that.
Thats some grat stuff V! I dont have any crits, I just want more.
I really like your pencil sketches, they are definately your strongest peices so far. I agree with the others guys that you should work some colour into them.
Its good to see more peeps from the UK. Which company do you work for?

Some more comps for that wip. I've been sick but hope to get back on track with this posting thing.
-AK: No, sorry dude, I'm from the US of A. but have been to the UK and hope to return someday. Right now i'm onstaff at Avalanche Software, a sub for BVG.
I love the pencils, and the monsters, oh and the bunnies, can't forget them, not when they are in bottles, and the mastermind of evil robots.
My favourite is probably the bottle bunny, probably because I'm weak for mass drawing, but anyway you have started a killer SB.

Simply stunning work, your colors are bright and beautiful, and your pencilwork is great as well. Love how the figures move off to the next page too. Can't wait to see more.

I dig the creatures!...very nice!
wow! inspiring work man! i'd like to work in a game company myself.. it's just that, i don't know if i have what it takes. i'm lackin' in the color department but, i hope to have it as good as you do.

I'm looking for work!
I am finnally starting to get over being sick. I hate being unproductive. The good news is that i've learned my lesson and will never take time off work again.
thanks for comments
The first gesture was inspired by another sketch done here on ca, but for the life of me I can't remember the artist.
