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.

@ Jelly bear, they are sketches


I meant turning the sketches into actual drawings, then adding color.

Wow, your art is amazing! You should consider adding color to some of these. I can't wait to see more. (:


Thanks. I actually got some thicker paper a bit ago, I'm probably going to use watercolor on that.

anyway dont know how you did that in the car....??? Lol


Well, the line going from Ciudad Juarez to El Paso, TX was pretty loong. The car wasn't moving for about 80% of the time.

Lol, Banksy is one of the greatest street artists in the world. If you haven't already, you should check out "Exit Through The Gift Shop"

As for posting, here's a doodle I did during school today. Took me about 2 periods.

I've also started this project in World Geography in which we do presentations on certain regions in the US, and I chose the Mid-Atlantic US, which encompasses New York, Philadelphia, and New Jersey. Decided to draw a little of New York. (Perspective's off due to angle of the camera, and sucky perspective on my part as well).

The buildings shown aren't really that close to each other in real life.

Hot darn, your sketches are extremely inspiring.

I personally want to see some more of this:

...But with more of your sketchy line good-ness.

As a fellow artist, I can honestly say I love your stuff.

Lol, thanks, although my lines are far from perfect. If only they could be like this...

@Oak
Thanks, man. Your pixel art is extremely inspiring as well. That simplicity and color use... But yeah, I'll upload more stuff like that in a few days.

Right-o, here's some more:

^They've recently been putting up crappily-made posters advocating carpooling around the school. So I decided to make this and put it up somewhere in the school just to see what happens. It reads: "ONLY F*GGOTS DON'T CARPOOL" along with a guy that will go to extremes to make sure that you carpool and save money on gas.

^And here's a Medieval witch-doctor. Done during German. Not finished yet, as I'm going to add some more crosshatchy goodness on the bottom left.

Nerdgasms all over the floor:

Yeah, I tried posting from both Photobucket and Imageshack. Picture shows up like that because of the profanity in the title. "F*gguts"
But here it is:

Haven't posted in a while, mainly because of laziness. Here's some stuff:
http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x437/NoSoapForYou/Classsketch.jpg
^This one was done in math class.
http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x437/NoSoapForYou/Bussketch.jpg
^Done on the city bus.
http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x437/NoSoapForYou/Atomicbombstencil.jpg
^Here's the idea for a stencil. I'm actually in the process of cutting out the stencil on some white cardboard paper, but I don't have my camera. I'll post that once I find it. The stencil, btw, is the earth engulfed in a mushroom cloud.
http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x437/NoSoapForYou/Markoportrait.jpg
^An attempt at doing portraits. Hair and ear aren't finished yet, but I don't really feel like working on it anymore. Sorry for ruining your face, Marko.
http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x437/NoSoapForYou/Handfinished.jpg
And finally, my first attempt at digital painting. Painting's such a different way of thinking.

Much needed update!

Only thing I can find to citique is the portrait. On the left side of his face and nose, you have a dark unneeded line going on which really shouldn't be there. There's no outlines in nature! ;3 Good job with the placing of the pupils, I see many artists make huge mistakes there.

Keep up the awesome work.
