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.

Thanks for stopping by and for the critique, Oak. Much appreciated.

And yes, I agree about the outline. It was partly because of the original style I wanted to attempt while doing the portrait. This bold, comic-y sort of thing. Then I started doing the shading on the face, and I abandoned that for a more realistic feel.

Which is pretty much telling me that I need to draw more, so I don't feel the need to try out so many different things in one drawing, but do several drawings with several different styles. His left eye is bugging me. :0

If you turned your efforts to stencilling and airbrushing I could see your pieces on a wall. Done without permission.

Done.

Here's a study of an owl I did a bit ago. http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x437/NoSoapForYou/CAOWL.jpg

Took me quite a while to update again. I can't promise I'll be updating from now on, as I'm now posting my art here.
Please keep in mind that I might be posting the occasional nudes on there from working on my anatomy, so don't click the link if... You don't think you should.

Until next time--if there is a next time.

I can tell you this now- i can draw owls too!
However mine look like my three-year-old neice drew it and it tends to look more like a dinosaur
The owl is penetrating my soul with its icy looks D:
I like the clumps of feathers, when i sketch i seems to have problems drawing hair and such.
Good job!

The second stencil is actually a copy of one of Banksy's pieces. I wanted to understand his approach to stencils.

Love the owl! It is my favorite! Though, they are my favorite animals. So I guess I am biased.
