:Suarez Sketchbook: (Ringling) ~HYDRALISK and trick 07/27~
I've been going through my archive of old sketchbooks looking for stuff fit to scan, and it's a bit of a slow process.
It's not a problem of thinking the stuff isn't good enough, it's just that most of it is really unfinished, like missing legs and ears.
So, I'm going to be finishing up the best ones and updating whenever I can.
Moved my first post down. Just wanted to make it easier to update the thumbnail.
I like your style very much, especially your pencil drawings. The cartoon look adds so much to the characters, they have a lot of personality. I think the eyes are what I noticed first, very good job. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Also I need some suggestions on how to make the gray-scale version pop out better. I usually just add the white outline so your eye doesn't drown in the gray, but I don't think that's the best way... I tried added a lighter shape in the background but I don't know...
Hmmmm... I'd say about 5-6 years. Started doing it alot in Middle School, and then in High School started trying to actively get better and find out how to improve so I started using online art forums to get advice and critiques. Eatpoo helped me alot to get to where I am now.
I started this one about when the last Blizzard contest was announced, and I think I finished it half way working on it off and on during a month. Then these last 2 or 3 weeks that I've been attacking all my unfinished sketch i took it the rest of the way.
I might post this one again later, I'm not too happy with the quality of the scan. I don't know what happened, it just looks like a lot of the detail got left out, hopefully scanning at a higher resolution will fix it.
I also have a bunch more updates coming up since I just about finished up another batch of sketches.
I've never been that good at finishing drawings in one hit. I always start a few and work on all of them little by little at the same time. Keeps me from getting bored of a drawing since I can just switch over to the next one. Also helps a lot in finding or avoiding mistakes. It kinda keeps your eyes fresh and also because what looks good one day, doesn't always the next.
