"The Duke" has improved considerably, man kudos
More puppy pics, plz what a cutie! and very well done
Very nice SB, btw...
Data Strings- The snake guy is a work in progress, not sure if Ill finish it, but I was going to do a uniform shadow just as you stated. I dont look at the finally finished section that often, but when I do, its instant inspiration. Hehe. I wouldnt worry about it tho, just as long as your doing something productive towards your art, ( be it sketching, painting, or looking through others work). Thx for the reply.
Master 25 Days- Thx, that would be a cool idea, didnt think of it. Ill try that when I get photoshop. Im sure that piece will look cool digitized.
DIMAGYAN- Thx for the crits and comments.
Zombie dla- I dont why I do it, but theres something about starting fresh that makes you happy. Thx.
meg- Yeah, the piece is insanely unrealistic. But it looks pretty cool. Ill try and get the dog to stay still so I can get some sketches of him.
AmontilladoAg- Thx, more to come.
Sorry for the delay, been at the hospital with my moms, she just got home from having surgery. Shes doing great now. Here are some sketches from my moleskine that Ive done over the past 4 days. Just two from the molekine tho. Sorry.
Hey I see some improvement since I last looked at your stuff. Lines are getting better, and there is a lot more solidity in a lot of these. Maybe try and loosen up a little more, and "scribble" around before settling on a line, to help find the best shapes/proportions and the most natural poses. Also you can push your values more, get some really dark spots in there to really give things more punch. Hope your mom is well.
Ya, glad your mom's doin' better
That monster in the middle is sweeeet 8)
nice drawings here dude. Imagination is excellent, i love the guy with the snake. Your update on your Wayne portrait is so much better, for example the values are so much better! Best crit is to keep on going!
Glad your mom is doing better, mate.
Pretty scary creatures there. I like the proportion on the guy in the middle. The rotting flesh on the top left guy is done nicely as well. I think more seperations between lights and darks would give them more dimension. Right now you have a lot of mids and the only distinguishable darks are the lines and the cast shadows. Throw in some darks for the form shadows as well and keep them seperated from the mids enough so that when you squint you can still see them.
I love the sketch book especially the last post you did. Also thanks for the comment.
cool stuff here!
some of the drawings are a little pale.
anyways, post more!
Some very nice work and lovely sketches
wish i could be as good
show me the contrast baby
YeahhH~! CCAD freshy!! Did you get a good portfolio scholarship??
Loving the stuff your doing so far~!
it's a sketchbook....
John T- More darks, comin up. Thx for C&C.
25- Good advice, thx.
Micaiah Nelson- Back at ya.
lema- Thx, I'll put more darks in.
freede- Im not even that good. If I had to look at your work and mine so far, I dsay yours are more interesting. It seems you give it your all, and thats the important thing. Keep working and youll keep improving.
Alvaradolol- Yes Sir. Thx.
Zoroko- Yeaaahhh!!!! and nope. I graduated last year, and CCAD doesnt give scholarships to highschool alumni. Bummer, I needed it too. Oh well, theres always loans, and prostitution. Scratch that last part. Hehe.
Ok, left page is a long sketch, I think 3 hrs or so. Right page is just 2 to 5 min. hands. Ill get my butt in gear and post more often.

Nice updates (wow, I actually got your page to load)!
Your sketches are always so neat and clean.
The ones on the first one look like they're related somehow, not just in style, but like... like they'd be in the same movie or something.
My teeny tiny crits would be that the ankles look a little small in the "witch" (nice foreshortening though), and that the rips in the skin of the "zombie" guy in the left seem like they stick out more than they probably would in existence. Perhaps try to add some more values. (I feel like such a hypocrite saying that).
For some reason, the "teddy" one confuses me. When I first saw it I didn't know what the "man" was exactly doing to the bear, whether he had any affection or was trying to suffocate it. I dunno, maybe it's supposed to be that way.
Nice hand exercises- clean.

Neat sketches (both literally and figuratively)! You have some intriguing character designs, I particularly like the guy with the checkered shirt and the lady with the long neck - is it inspired by African tribal culture? The perspective drawing of the man looking down maliciously is very well-done, and so are the John Wayne and the dog. The hands are also coming along wonderfully too.
I also suggest adding more values, as your current shading makes your subjects appear somewhat flat. Anyway, keep up the good work!
25- Thx, I was thinking he had just gone through a traumatic experience, and the only thing that made him feel better is within the teddy he loved so much when he was a child.
Data- Thx, yeah the pencil I was using is really light, but I switched to darker led now. 25 said the same thing about the teddy pic.
audrey- Thx, more darks. Yes yes. The longneck woman, I thought it would be cool to put the rings from the african culture on a vampire. Looked cool to me.
DeJakhalz- Thx. Anatomy soon to come.
Couldnt get my page to load for a while. Heres another page from my big sketchbook. Enjoy.
Oh, nice. Excellent job on the right character. Was it all from imagination?
Good job on those hand studies.
and Alvaradolol's right -- that guy in jeans is pretty cool... what's the person on the left s'posed to be doing?
Good stuff, I'm not sure if there are well erased marks, but if not I would say take some time and stray lines to feel out a character/pose whatever, some of your figures are a bit tight. Keep it up.
I like the foreshortening on the girl on the left. Only thing I would do is place her head higher or bend her torso more. Guy on the right looks killer. Left hand is a little unnatural, you should see more of the top side (opposite of the palm) and the knuckles should slope more with the middle one being the highest.
Alvaradolol- Thx, I dont use reference too often, but I need to. Those in particular were from imagination.
AmontilladoAg- Thx, I dont know. I was just trying to get some dynamics in. Not very good tho.
Jester retseJ- Thx. Doing good, how bout you?
25- Thx for the crit. The hand is pretty unatural looking now that you mention it. I was thinking the same thing about the girl. Ill remember to play a little more with the underlying figure before I flesh them out.
half hr sketch, and two 10 min. hands

Hey man thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. Its good to see that you still improving dramatically. I hope your having a good time at art college.
Keep pushing it man!

Wow, what a lovely John Wayne drawing... very impressive... keep it up... fill that sketchbook up!
i like your hand studies,let me tell you something,hands it's pretty hard to draw and you have control about it.

Hey hey, those hands are cool, do you use any structure? (blocks and lines or whatever)
