    Stu's Sketchbook

    Please feel free to comment/crit, your ideas are more than appreciated! Feedback is lovely! I may not be able to reply immediately - making a living out of this stuff is freakin difficult, and time is non-existent. And motivation what!

    Some of the stuff you dudes are cranking out is sweet, groove on - I'll endeavor to leave comments.....

    A piece done early 2006 for uni - this was a design to be mounted on a constantina slightly larger than average head height, and six panels across. As it turns out, I completely stuffed up the project, but ended up with a decent image which is nice.

    I really like that commissioned tiger piece. Cool dune buggy in the last post, too.

    Keep posting when you've got time

    pen sketches!

    Cheers iMaiM, I have found some time! Going to check out your threads properly as soon as I can too, your work is sweet dude...

    Yep, pretty happy with the dune buggy, as I get in to concept work I'd like to be experimenting with heaps of vehicle design which'll be lovely. I may use that tiger piece for something too.....depends on what crops up I guess.

    Got me a couple of recent sketches, enjoy - more to come!

    heyy man those last sketches are really going somewhere i'd like to see you clean up your lines a little more, maybe hatch a little more consistantly as opposed to scribbling like a mad man also, keep in mind the figure underneath the clothes. constantly think to yourself, "does her shoulder read as if it connects to her body if the sleeve looks like this?" or "do his legs bend in the right place even though he's got super-baggy jeans on?" can be a very important thing. do you do any prelim sketching to find the figure's silhouette before you get too involved in a drawing or what?

    facial structure

    anatomy study, or facial structure - plenty more practice ahead of me.... also a snake logo for a business called boa construction which I completed a couple of weeks ago. Very happy with this result - seen here before it has been placed onto a business card.

    stoph; Cheers for your feed back man, yes I do need to clean up line work more and practice hatching - I tend to draw really quickly and so lose clarity with the haphazard strokes. I'm hoping to be able to combine the energetic strokes with tight form which I guess will slowly come together with time. For the last couple of pieces, no I didn't use prelim sketches, but went straight to pen except for a rough pencil outline with basic proportions of the bodies. Using the figures silhouette may be a good one to try....

    A variety of sketches and studies, the figure studies are from early 2006 and the skeletons were created around April this year I think(?) Kindof fuzzy... Heaps more to come!

    !Paintings - have a squiz

    These are a variety of pieces created earlier this year, as well as a couple of more recent works. All with acrylics primarily - and the dude with the megaphone has been painted over corrugated cardboard which was an experiment. People seem to like the different effect so maybe I should try some more work like this.... The first piece is a self portrait, the next three are editorial pieces and the last one was just stuffing around. Good times!
