    Sam's sketchbook of stuff and things

    Hi guys... my virgin post here. I registered a long while back, lingered, thought about posting, then got the willies and decided it was way too scary! However, lately I've found myself growing frustrated with my art, so I'm here in the hopes you guys will give me the punt in the backside I need to go out and improve. I'm open to crit and feedback of all kinds, I'm pretty sure I don't have to tell you guys to not hold back.

    The brief background: Born 1979, female, have worked as a full time concept artist for Jagex, in the UK since 2009. I work in both traditional and digital, in all manner of styles.

    Edit: Feel free to crit away, guys, I still don't bite with regards to feedback, and appreciate all comments. Reserve the right to disagree, but I'm totally open. Latest work will always be found at the last post I've made, rather that updating the front page.

    And some of my digital works. Some of these are works in progress... the infinite time frame with digital means I often work on digital pieces for months before suddenly getting an urge to finish them. I love photoshop and am weaning myself back to Painter. Let me know if I need to resize any of these pics, I'm a little unsure as to what's the norm round these parts!

    The first pic is a self portrait, done for the "past lives" challenge on pixelbrush.net's forums.
    The master copy is a Rembrandt (the name of which escapes me) and was done in PS with only the chalk textured brush.
    The last two are wips from my own novel, the two main pairings.

    And lastly, before I go throw myself into some of the other threads here, a couple of anatomy/gesure/practice type sketches, just as I find this kind of work interesting in others works! I've yet to do any life drawing, though am making some enquiries at local colleges, since it's something I would really love to do.

    Thanks Dabaers, I try to add elements of story telling through faces, they're what I love doing most.

    Nice. Very nice. I particularly like the miniatures, because...well, I really like miniatures. They're like magic.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Bao: thanks, if you're the Bao I've admired for some time now, that's a big compliment!
    Bryce: Hey! Thanks for the welcome. I've not spoken to Sacha in an age myself... I keep hopping onto MSN in the hopes of catching him to say hi, but no luck so far!
    foxboy:Hey! You're welcome! I'm currently based in the rurals of North Yorkshire, but getting itchy feet! And the ref for the guy originally came from a stock gallery on da that's no longer up and running, but he has one here: Arachnid15's stock
    Weetbix: Thank you!
    Stoat: Ehehe thanks, they're not so magic when you've a lot of them to churn out in short deadlines, but such is the life of an artist!

    Here's a few more, a couple of wips (i'm terrible for starting stuff and never finishing, my muse is a distracting creature), though the first is a commission, so it will be finished. The xmas image was recently completed for a religious charity I've done a lot of work for, and the pencil drawings of the sexy guys are for an author, Tessa E Colby, who writes erotic fantasy.

    Wow Sam. Really good stuff. Thanks for stopping by my book. I figured I'd return the favor and I discovered some really cool art. I can't help but find it hard to believe that my sketches inspire you after looking at this.

    James thank you, and yeah, you're definitely right on the male's leg.. needs thinning out a little!
    Jason I do, I love work with a good story telling element, and yours definitely had that, among other things! Glad you like my work too!
    [b]Dandilion[b] aw, thanks very much! Actually.. if you could see my current list of wips you'd know my patience is anything but endless... I'm working towards becoming faster simply because so much of my stuff remains unfinished! Most of the more detailed pieces I've worked on over months, on and off.

    Here's a piece i completed recently after watching Jason Chan's download from this site. Very inspiring, though I've still to get painter to play nice with me.

    And the sketch for a piece that's underway in coloured pencil at the mo:

    And here's a little progress on a fun piece I've started for pixelbrush's November challenge, "Opposites", other than that, too busy painting Cunard's flagship cruise ships in miniature and attempting NaNoWriMo to tackle anything else!
