Really pretty linework and you have a good understanding of believable, natural gestures. I like the shadow placement on your shaded figurework, would love to see you bring more of that believability to your creatures designs.
I like your ability to move the camera around, and place your figures in poses that are interesting to the eye.
Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing more updates!

great sketchbook, your colored figure studies are showing alot maturity.
With your sketches you are doing something that MANY artists do when trying to mature, breaking this habit, in my mind advanced an artist up a few levels, and that is....SIDE VIEWwwwwwww..... There are TONS of side views in your sketches, i see....3 of the fat guy sideways. Start trying to suttle turn the head or adding a hint at another arm. Just don't get trapped into being so used to drawing something in the exact pose that it causes conflict when you need to break out of your own bounderies.
bluemech and jade dragon- thanks, the believability of the figures, vs creatures is most likely duded to the fact that about 60-75% of the figutres are ref'd so its me working with a lot more informatioon.
davi- muchas grgacias for the crit. i noticed the over abundance of sideviews also. its is miost definately because i can draw them semi decent without having to look @ a figure. i will break out of the habit. i'm ost definately faamiliar with Mr. Tew he's i guess an influence that may pop up in my stuff. that monster came from me lookin @ a street fighter book in class then getting bored and drawring a pose similar to i think a blanka pose or something.
anyway, hopefully i'll get done with all this god awful homework and sccan some shite in tonite.
