Menno's doodles. Updated just now
Hello, my name is Menno and I'm an alcoh...er, forum lurker. I love to draw, but lately university has been kicking my ass and I haven't had any time to make with the penciling. So I figured one of these sketchbook threads might force me to do so more often.
Problem is, I have no scanner here. Yes. I'm a poor student. So I am left with no choice but to do wacom only stuff. And I'm not all that good with it. I'm one of those people that really need to look at where they're drawing. But I suppose that adds an extra challenge and might make me a better artist in the end. Anyhow, I hope you guys like my stuff.
Yes, I do get (slightly) better later on.
First try at digital drawing... again. Kind of experimenting with brush sizes for this one.
My muck now comes with rendering!
I wanted a break from sketching, so I decided to get back into rendering/coloring (from reference). For a first try I started with value only, so I went black & white. I probably invested around 3 hours in this piece... and then I got bored with it. As a result, yes, the hand and face suffered. In my defense regarding the face, adding details to small images such as these is difficult.
As an extra, I've included a few old studies, ranging from 20 minutes to one hour. These were my last attempts at color, from about a year or so ago. Anyway, I hope you like it. Oh, and happy newyears!
And ye oldies:
