Chris Noeth's SKETCHBOOK - Update: JAN 20/2014
After being a Conceptart.org member for some time now and all the great inspiration I got from the incredible artists in this community so far I think it is time to start my own sketchbook.
I will give my best to update on a regular basis... :yayca:

NEW STUFF AT THE END OF THE THREAD!
"Stupid Heroes?"... begins here!
wareagle: Thanks! It was an example on how to make a quick concept design without too much details.
madplanet: Thank you! Maybe I will show some of my older stuff later down the road because I started this sketchbook to create new stuff and get motivated to draw more regular (beside work stuff).
I also don't want to confuse people who know my other stuff by posting it here again... I think if I did they maybe will get a feeling like "Hey... this guy is posting his old stuff over and over... can't he draw something new?". I want to avoid this... :) But great you like all my stuff... ;)
Here is a new one. This is the first in a series, called "Stupid Heroes?"
A BIG thank you to Dan Taylor for the right grammar! :}
Alpha Bettie concept art and stuff...
Attention: For all visitors who know the stuff in this post please read on with new posts when I have some. I will post new art with the next posts!
I decided to post some of my older work from my comic project I started months ago. But I will not show old stuff from my website because I want this sketchbook to be a motivation to work on some more 'practice' stuff regularly and a place to go and see my new sketches and concept work.
I am working on my first US comic project called "Alpha Bettie" written by IDW editor Dan Taylor.
I had to take a break from working on sequentials and will start again soon working on the pages. There were different reasons for the break. The main reason is me and my wife got a little boy and the little buddy needs most of my time... not only because of changing diapers... hehe :)
Some months ago I started with some quick concept stuff for the comic... some of it you can see here:
First an alternate filthier version of the robotdesign from above:
And here are some of the first character designs and sketches:

Some fighter designs:
A promo image from 2005 and the exhibition pieces with some making of images from the German comic convention 'Comic Salon Erlangen 2006'. In the last one you can see the first finished page from the sequentials:
I hope you guys like the designs.
Life on Mars... approved!
Newbs: Great to hear you like it so far. Thank you! Watch out for the new Bettie stuff I will post soon.
Here is an 'fan'image of a martian from Topps 'Mars Attacks'. I wanted to show some kind of fifties scene like from an old episode of 'Lassie' combined with the horror shown in the original card series 'Mars Attacks'.
I love the idea of ultra violent trading cards for kids... hehe :) ... whoever was responsible for the original cards had a sense of good old morbid humor ;)
Prepare to get plasmarized!...
Alpha Bettie sequential page 1
Dreamworker: Thanks for the nice words. It is great you like the stuff. :rendered:
Because I was asked for a big version of the Bettie Page (mhhh... this sound familiar... hehe ;) )... here it is:
More Bettie stuff will follow...
