Hey Steeliebob, welcome to the forum!
I like what I see so far! I like the looseness of your sketches.

Thanks to the both of you. :) I will be sure to post more when I get home. I was planning to practice either hands or feet this evening. Because, well... I'm really bad at them. And maybe scan a few pages from my ''traditional sketchbooks''

Thank you two!

Wow your stuff is amazing! I can only hope to achieve this level of sketching and painting, I really really love your environment work! Any tips on working in greyscale for that? Or just practice?

Thank you Vixie.

NesoKaiyoH: I didn't have a lot of practice in landscapes but before I've been doing something else that gave me a bit of practice in the atmospheric-perspective thing I guess. I used to make random abstract shapes in 3d-software (I can't actually model to well. lol) and combine them into a scene. It didn't actually learn me how to draw but I did figure out a good few random fundamental skills. And it did learn me how to use Photoshop.

Something like this:

Thank you Vixie.

The one looks like Cubone, indeed. I actually had him at the back of my mind.

Great gestures Steelie, I like the fluidity of the line.
And how fast they're solved.
