Devin's Sketchbook
Hey, my name is Devin, and I don't know why I didn't join up here sooner haha. I used to sit in on a lot of Dave's old streams but never really participated too much. I started getting serious about practicing in January, I've been posting my progress at Here's a few things from the past week or two:

Here's something I started working on today, I'm trying to force myself to work on larger compositions. I feel like I get overwhelmed with these and then I forget how to render Tongue. I should probably do a ton of thumbnails to practice. I'd love some input!

Man, I'm diggin these. My art boner just twitched a little.

I really love the stroke economy you're able to achieve as well as your edge-control and color choices. If I had to pick an area of improvement, I'd say to zero in on cleanliness of presentation or polish. Invest more in your focal points in terms of readability.

Can't wait to see more though.

Thanks so much Einver!

I totally agree about polishing the focal points, it's only something I really started paying attention to recently. I'm gonna keep working at it, thanks again man.

Here's a couple of studies from this morning:

Hell yeah dude, this stuff rocks! Just a bunch of solid work in here!

Thanks man!

Here's some stuff from the sketchbook, mostly working on head construction. I've been drawing the skull on my desk and then using the z-brush anatomy model as reference to place some of the muscles on top of my drawing from life. It's been a realllly effective exercise so far, I need to do more.

Some really amazing stuff here mate, great job. Love the classic painterly feel you get here- can I ask what brushes you use? (classic amateur question but i really love your mark-making! :) )
Some pretty solid stuff here man! I like how you handle hard versus soft edges. It's very subtle.
Can't wait to see more :)

Thanks guys!

Ward, I use a few different sets, mostly Jaime Jones, Whit brachna, algenpfleger, and zedig's.

here's a study of a sculpt by Alex Oliver:

Really great stuff, just posting to say we're still watching this stuff and drooling.
