hi mr carver. i got to do DIY all day today with my hangover from last night. poop indeed. nice tank mate, good to see you playing with vehicles for a change. I see you are almost back up to your 5 stars after the trolling mate...good to see!!
Cakeypigdog:Cheeyers! I'll get the stars back if and when I deserve 'em.
Here's some random stuff from recently, loik.
Coloured in doodle for this week's CHOW. This is just the creature design - I'd like to do a proper illustration as an entry. I have a pretty decent idea of what I'd like to do. Basically, a load of these guys all hugging on to the same branch and it bending under the weight of them and some of them falling off. There's an unreadable thumbnail of that as well:
Some random studies. Bits of a crab I found on a beach, machine bits etc:
I'm slowly feeling my way into the wonderful world of colour. Here's a couple of speed paints. I don't know what I'm doing but I'm beginning to understand it a little better...
A couple more eenk post-its. Need to stop drawing heads so much...
A few little figures from a while back:
Wow, really all over the map with this one, so lets see, are those figures from a modle or out of your head? Nice distributer cap. Do you enjoy crab? I think those tik things live on my dogs hind quarters. Thats all. Glad to see your doing some more painting type stuff. Keep up the good work.
SketchBook Chris Yoakum?
Yes sir, keep it up!
hehe this hapens to me for second time i vote and ...there it is 5 stars i think you must hawe them

just for the pleasure of doing it...
More top stuff, Nick - you're linework's as excellent as ever, and it's cool to see more colour work from you. The Creature concept's very nice - looking forward to seeing the finished piece...
Cheers for the replies!
MonkeYoakum: The figures are from my head. Gah! They look very ropey on review... I do enjoy crab. Thanks for visiting!
tokidokizenzen: Cheers! CGChat RPRZNT!
whiteeee: Much obliged, dollface!
mya: Thanks for visiting mr. Mya. I didn't finish the COW (fer shame...) but maybe I'll do better with the CHOW entry....
A quick update. Not much to show for the past couple of weeks. Must try harder etc.
A WIP and doodle for this week's CHOW contest:
Quick arm studies from Civardi:
Thumbnails for another COW I didn't finish:
That's it for the moment. BTW, I saw Pan's Labyrinth tonight. It was amazing. Everyone should see this film so that we got more stuff like this at the cinema rather than Scary Movie 8.
LOVELY stuff, cant wait for the final, I really like his face, and the helment
wow that one that max pointed out is the bomb diggidy..........ur, yeah. I've never seen this sketchbook before really glad I found it, keep the updates comin mate!
mad skilz, high level of human characters,love all
Man I love those post it doodles. Studies and doodles right below the chow are fantastic too.
Keep 'em coming!
Cheers for the kind words all!
asoir: Ta! You should always make time for more post-its.
maxetormer: I'm glad you liked it. I really need to do more finished pieces. You learn a lot about what you can and can't do on work that isn't just doodles.
jozulus: Yeh! Thanks!
The Gnoll: Thanks for dropping by! I want to keep trying to diversify and improve.
Here's a bunch of stuff from this week:
Speedpaint from this evening. Trying to work on values:
A little knight thingy:
And the doodle:
Err. Little composition things? I want to do loads of these:
Trying to loosen up my non-ref figures. A long way to go...
That's it for now.
GREAT stuff !
the latest couple of updates are sweet as hell

Cheers for the replies!
Hurricane: Thanks for stopping by! It means a lot.
Jens: Cheers! You're right about the sharpen thing. I really need to start getting better at mixing hard and soft edges without artificial methods. Next time I'll be good, honest.
Eurgh. So I tried painting some skin tones with gouache this evening and it came out horribly. I learnt a lot about mixing colours the traditional way, though. Here's some doodles with the brush pen. I need to loosen up like Mr. Asoir....
Amazing stuff man, really liked your digitals.
Really great work going here, the civardi studies are great also the doodles, the guy with the gas mask is really cool.
Keep it up.
Nick your sketchbook is a monster, amazing work!
mrkite: Good to see you in this neck of the woods. I reckon you should start a sketchbook here. You know you want to...
Here's a couple of things I did this week:
Had a go at designing a vehicle. It's a taxi... FROM THE FUTURE!
Here's the original scribble:
A little conker headed armoured fellow:
I tried to colour it fast and with high contrast. A bit of a mess but I learned some things:
Really love your work man! My jaw has been hanging loose this recent 4 pages. Your style and variety is the best I have seen on a Internet sketchbook site. Some of your work is as good as those old paintings youve seen on Kings in the 1800, and they hired the best to portait the Kings and some of youre work is absolutely in that class.
May I ask for how long youve been drawing? Have you always been this good?
And for how many hours a day do you spend to draw?
You are really a inspiration for me. Who is kind of a beginner.
As always, thanks for the replies.
DanielC: Cheers, man. I draw a lot in colerase blue pencil and as a result have to up the contrast a lot because my scanner doesn't pick it up at all. The rest of the time it's either 2B or B mechanical pencil. I try to make as few lines as possible.
cakeypigdog: Thanks for the encouragement (three years and counting). I'm so glad to see that we're all making great progress and inspiring each other. god bless the scrawny white!
The Gnoll: Thanks for always stopping by! I really appreciate it. Let's hope we get to meet at a Euro CA workshop soon.
asoir: Seriously, I love your looseness. You can't fake it. Just do studies in equal measure and you'll be laughing, mate!
Nellin: Many thanks for your kind words. I've been drawing seriously for about 2 and a half years. Generally, I think I draw/paint maybe 3/4 hours a day (I should be doing a lot more). CA.org has been a major factor in my progession thus far, but I realise that the rest is up to me. You should start a sketchbook and see how far you can push yourself. Personally, I think I could have worked at least twice as hard in the past couple of years. It all comes down to how bad you want it, I think...
Here's the quick sketch for the most recent piece:
