I got a Moleskine notebook yesterday, so I christened it with two drawings. The first page is of a different material than those following it, hence the difference in color between the pages.
I can see that I'll make use of this book often in the future.

Comments appreciated!

Well notbad first of all on your two sketches and such, it took me awhile to get to and find your art so i am glad i did you have a couple of nice sketches here, but i must say they are still hard to see even a close up version, but regardless they were both pretty good i thought have some sorta story to tell and nice sketches good line work especially with the hair and all, it could use a touch of color even if its just pencil or even pen, you have some nice stuff here i would love to see how you can process this with maybe photoshop and or paintshop pro, to really beable to give it some bright and fresh colors, would really be something neat, anyways good work, and i look forward to reviewing more from you soon

the artwork seemed very hard to see from the computer so maybe somehow you can maybe outline the work with a darker pen or something, some mixture with photoshop would also be nice and allow for some fresher color thems

Thanks for the review! Your score was pretty fair, although your review itself was a little peculiar in the language department. I get what's wrong with it, though. I've been improving with darkening lines, though, and I recently had some ebony pencils that I used to make thick, black lines. Problem is, I don't have a scanner anymore!
I usually only digitally touch up on pen drawings, by the way.

Not a review, but a piece of advice: I recommend using the cheap knock off mole-skins (faux-skins?) sketchbooks. They are much less expensive, and the paper is more resilient.

Not bad pieces, nit corms and line-work. Dig the zanni mask.

Luxembourg responds:

I'm hoping you didn't give me a 5 just because I drew this in a real Moleskine, because a 5 fits a "bad" piece, not a "not bad" piece. While advice like that is nice, it's really a little too late, as I've already BOUGHT a moleskine. I'm not having any problems with it thus far. Go ahead and include tidbits of advice in your reviews, but you really shouldn't score things based on little things like that. Review scores are intended for the work itself, and you failed to provide enough reason that this is a bad piece.
Sorry if I sound vehement. I usually take criticism very well, but your review offers none.

What a coincidence! So did I. I drew a hipster on the first page.

Luxembourg responds:

Cool. Not much to say here, but thanks for the comment and the nice score.
