Sketchbook of Dawnland
A friend of mine made me realize how much I've missed drawing.
At work, I mainly work with layout, websites and logo design so the drawing is always secondary.
To get me motivated to draw more I registered here at CA.
First of all I will post images drawn for more than ten years ago (which I've had plans to digitally colourize for some years now).
Later on I will post more recent artwork.
Feedback and critiscm are most welcome.
(I fear that I won't take the time to do the same for others since I have very little time for this "hobby" of mine. Thanks in advance). I am here to learn and well - I really should give it more time but there is none for the moment, sorry).

Zodiak of Chaos
Drew the whole Zodiak (mainly to have a theme) back in 96.
6 out of 12 added here (pisces, aries, gemini, virgo, libra, sagittarius)
As these images are drawn in the same style as the Tarot they may seem redundant...
All for now

Computer colourized stuff (old)
Thanks for the reply RandAlThor.
I still want c&c on the old stuff I posted. Haven't drawn that much since 96 so my artwork will not be improved, ha!
Here is another old thing, colourized in the computer back in 96 (I was inspired by some comic cover named Alien Sex Fiend and thought -wow - one can colourize things in phothoshop). Did not turn out as well as I intended, but anyway.
Newer stuff will be posted later this week.

I like the first pencil stuff, even if it is old. The couloured ones dont seem to be as good, but i will wait for some new work

CHOW86, the Junk Collector
True Jiga. I agree. I did not put as much time and effort into the coloured stuff. It was supposed to become a comic and I was in a hurry (no patience, wanted to be finished right away.)
The coloured stuff are really bad, but I wanted to post it to have something to compare with when I (someday) will post new coloured stuff, ha!
The only colourized image I've made since then (except for some vector art) is this one for the Character of the Week #86. But it still need another hour or two to be completed but it was great fun anyway. More recent stuff to come.

Comic - November
Found this old drawing from 1996 and felt like posting it before uploading new stuff (which I'll probably do tomorrow)
This is page four from a comic that I started to draw with a friend. As usual we didn't finish it.
Know that it's quite pathetic and cheesy, but it's nothing compared to the script and dialogue, ha!
(traditional charcoal sketch filled with black marker. (before the computer age - now it's a lot easier to just "fill" the black.)
As usual - c&c are most welcome, all to make me better!

Childrens book 2005 (or something)
Different style than my sketches. Mainly I only have two "styles". The Zodiak and Tarrot of Chaos style and this inatile, fast drawn style like these. Use to draw and paint illustrations for my "day time work" in this "style".
My wife wrote most of the script with some help from me on the vacation two (or was it three?) years ago.
Being registred here I hope to develop at least 3 other styles of drawing, but time will tell.
All for now.

Finally I took the time to draw. This summer on the vacation in Greece.
4 images drawn with the black pencil (without sketch and the ability to erase which is a quite good challenge/excercise)
To have a concept this time I gave the characters from a game I made on the amiga (for more than 15 years ago) a new look.
My intention is still to colourize these using painter (as well as some of my zodiak drawings) but I haven't taken the time yet.

WIP - colourization of Wee - the Witch
First piece made in painter except for the CHOW above.
I want to learn and therefore I post some WIP. Don't know if they are too many?
Non-colour original above.
I had a hard time to decide if I should keep the thick black lines/contours but I finally decided to remove them.
I made her taller half way through the process after a comment from my wife and added a visible lightsource yesterday after a good advice from my painter-friend. (haven't worked on it at all yet)
This one is drawn in A5 size at 300 dpi (1600 x 2400 pixels). I've come to understand that this is a bit overkill since one can resize the image before going into details instead, but I learn with time I hope. The wip are shrinked 33 percent except for the last one that is at 100 percent and croped.
There are a lot more to do on this one but I hope for some creative criticsm. (you can see which parts I haven't worked on yet etc)
All for now and thanks in advance!

hey, that last one turned out well. Good to see your process.
one thing you might wanna try, make sure you set some drawing time aside for just anatomy and figure drawing and such, should help overall with everything else if you keep at it regularly.
and again, that last paint came out nicely, no real crits from me on it (still really struggling with painting myself >_<)
keep on drawing
