Hello, and weeeeellllcomme to my sketchbook. Here, I'll be uploading drawings, sketches, and other artwork that I've done every week.

I'm pretty much doing this to get me drawing, as I often will start on a drawing and never finish out of laziness. Hopefully this will help me fix that, and provide you with some badly rendered images along the way.
Anyway, SLOW INTERWEBS CONNECTIONS BEWARE:

^ Bookmark I made for my brother. Inspired by CastleCrashers.

^ Truck I made during a lecture in my History class. In the end, I was drawing more than taking notes. Test tomorrow. D:

Some uber-cool guy from the mafia taking a smoke. Unfinished.

And finally, a crude stab at creating a short comic. I'll probably try going for a cleaner look next time.

Thanks for checking it out. I'll try to upload more stuff tomorrow, maybe. Critique is appreciated.

Well, turns out I've lost much of the stuff I've done in color.(Recently moved)
Only stuff I found worth posting was this Cabbage I painted in chalk pastel:

Camera flash stopped working, so lighting is poor and colors don't show up very well... :/ I'll reupload it sometime in the future, when we get the flash fixed.
Photography's colorful too, right? :c

Hey dude, I remember a lot of this stuff, I might have to do the same thing. I just gotta scan all of my pictures. I should work with a pen, maybe that will help with the problem I've been having. Still some of that is still better than anything I can do.

Just keep working at it, man.
It was a nice surprise seeing you here, too.

Don't think so, unless you live in Georgia or El Paso, Texas.

Anyway, here's a short update:
