    Sazzle's Sketchbook - Scribbles of a control freak

    This looks like a much better way of getting your artwork online than sites like deviant art where its a lottery as to whether anyone sees your stuff or not! For those who have seen my other posts dotted about you'll know that I've only being doing this digital art malarky for around a week and a bit.
    I knew how to use photoshop before but my Wacom tablet was only bought for me a short while ago.

    Guess should tell ya all a little about me. I've been doing freelance illustration for about 2 years now (analogue pen and paper only thus far) which unfortunately is not enough to pay the bills at the moment so I also work as a legal clerk.

    I live in Sheffield in England, the land of the rain.

    You should note - I am absolute crap a backgrounds so any help will be much appriciated.

    Neways, thanks to all who have been so friendly since I started posting here, its nice to be in a community that really does give you CONSTRUCTIVE critisim!

    Here is my most recent project. It's in the WIP section too as I could definately do with some hints and tips.

    She is supposed to be an angel, rejected from heaven due to conspiring with the devil to bring chaos to heaven. I don't know whether to give her some sort of weapon or not. She looks a little more evil than I intended originally but actually I kinda like the whole 'pissed off' look now.

    I've also never painted armour before so its going to be a challenge.

    Is it sad that I'm the only one posting on my sketchbook? Ah well, it will act as a good memo journal for myself!

    It's not sad at all, I was actually posting a reply at the same time as you, but you changed the picture and added another so I bit back until I could re-read it.

    I'm from The west mids, I know how you feel about the rain, heh.

    You might want to revise the way her stomache is placed above her hips, I think it's a tiny bit far to the side. (judging by those undie-things)

    But that's pretty minor and I can't see anything else with my untrained eyes, I'd like to see this finished as the idea is badass.

    Just some friendly crits.

    *edit

    Forgot the mention, that bug fairy alien thing is just too awesome.

    Those aren't undies, I didn't realise that I'd cut off the layer. She is in fact wearing a long layered skirt so although her tummy looks a little wonky there, the whole dress is in line on my PSD drawing!

    I'm glad you like monty the alien bug. My partner posed for the feet!

    The midlands were the worst hit this week were they not? Hope your house isn't floating down a street at the moment! Cheers for the comments, I'll keep showing updates of this picture, I promise.

    I like your works. In that first one with nice feet is very owesome linework. And in that devil-angel she can have weapon like controlling the fire or smt that fire could go out of her hands and make a spiral around her. That would be awesome. Keep posting, ill be waiting for new ones.

    edit: and try to remove the glow around her hair, i think then it should blend better in background

    I will get some more of my traditional drawing work up soon I promise.
    However, I'm suffering with a sort of artists block at the moment.

    I generally draw people and I feel like I need to get some more machines or creatures in my portfolio. Anyone got any ideas?

    This was supposed to be a picture of a small mouse all curled up. Somehow it morphed in to my pet cat, mango!
    Possibly needs a background of some sort, will work on it more tomorrow.

    Some more stuff, this is all mostly traditional art as I have had to take a break from the wacom tablet. I've got tendonitous (RSI) in my wrists at the mo and its a bit too painful to use.

    Your faces with the angels. they seem to be coming out a bit angula, this will tend to make her look more masculine then intended, you might want to work on that.

    I wanted it to be angular. She is a warrior, I didn't want her face to be too rounded as I wanted to give a sense that she is almost androginous (forgive the spelling).

    these are really great.

    I noticed on post #10 the second photo the girls hand was a bit off...might want to tune that up a bit.

    keep up the good work. *gives thumbs up*
