:// EddTQ's sketchLand!
Hello my name's Edd,
I'm from Torquay (south west England)
i've been searching around the forum for a while now, i just thought it's about time i set up my own sketchbook!
I'm also looking to be mentored in the mentor section; so i'll swing across and post there once i've set this bit up!
I'm 18 years old and an art student (national diploma) at exeter college.
I'm looking to study BA illustration next year at uni or some sort of 3D games character design course.. i haven't decided yet
here are some drawings - (a bit old now)
the first two are some inkworks and the last, a more recent, gunz online postcard i made for a college project.

heres some older ink drawings that i scanned today,
i'm in the process of scanning bits of my sketchbook so i'll probably update some more tomorrow
for now though, bedtime! huzzah!
ohyeah i messed VERY quickly with photoshop on the babyface-esque one!
also if you look closely the cigarette guy is visible in the babyface guys' chest.. it was on the page after and my scanner picked it up hahah thin papers

Hey fellow englander, nice to see you got a SB up, digging the messy style, i believe it shows character and enjoyment. i can def see it going somewhere if you keep refining it.
i'm chugging along on a national diploma course too haha, 2nd year, downside is that its hardly about anything i'm interested in, but hey, gotta keep an open mind right, if you wanna stand out and be a good artist.
names Tony btw, how you doing?

apart from that though i left three full sketchbooks on the train and never saw them again!
skipped completely the sculpture unit and still managed to pass everything!? its crazy man! - what projects have you done?
have you started doing life drawing yet?
the new first years at my college have started it already and we haven't done any at all!
whereabouts in the uk are you based?
an old harry pottarrr doodle from my sketchbook (the colour scan on my scanner is really weak.. the colours come out crazy everytime!)
Edit: heres a very quickly messed with version

Yeah 1st year was a bit.. did it at a different college, started off good! since i knew alot of people from the 1st diploma i did there, made new friends, got a girlfriend, which was a huge mistake! didn't go well, let me tell ya! anyway, moved to KIAD/UCCA after that for my second year, with a friend who transfered before me, though somehow she got onto the course above me, slick bitch lol.
3 full sketchbooks hu? damn, i'd be so gutted! maybe you'll find your pics on the net one day haha, i haven't been into uni for like a week, 'ill' you see.
i'm down in kent, medway area, shithole, and noone on CA is anywhere near! haha.
done a bit of life drawing, randomly, which is cool, dunno what we're ment to be doing now, last time we was making boxes. lol fun.
anyway, i like the pic, has a nice style, and certainly looks better than daniel whatever in the movies haha

okay i haven't updated in a while - here's a quick sketch i did yesterday that i've messed with a bit in photoshop,
Edit: i added a revised colour scheme (which is actually the first one) just to lag everyones net
i just made the neck, face and hair colour a bit lighter, although now i think his nose is a bit too red? - oh whatever, i don't know why i worry so much about a quick sketch?

this is a quick WIP from today
- all done with mouse as my tablet pen is broken
anyway i think the chin looks wonky and the hair to the left side is much bigger than the right side, making the left ear look a bit large other, other than that can you see any crits? i'd like to know what/how to improve before working back into it!

some solid experimentation here an i like that your trying to improve speed. I think you actually have a bit of a strong style for such early work though, maybe a good thing, but perhaps try some nice studies to back up your experimentation. Does your college run any life drawing or similar classes? I'd like to see them more
By the way I too want to do BA illustration at Bristol next year, so drop me a line and keep in touch we could end up on the same course!
