Zeroe's Wicked Sketchbook Adventure
Yes, the time has come for me to better myself. Strive to become better at all things he does art or artlike, be it drawing, sketch, painting, collage or whatever it is my fragile little mind comes up with I shall post here, if they are not good enough for the Finally Finished forum that is, ahem. I hope I can get as much help and input from you guys as I can! Really want to improve and advance! Oh dear, I was talking about myself in third person again
By keeping a sketchbook I hope to motivate myself to do more work every day, and to hopefully entertain many peers granted anyone looks
I can't guarantee not literally blowing your mind when you look at my work but you never know. Yes, I'm funny.
Right, as this thread moves along I plan to write a little about myself and my inspirations aswell as info about my current projects and some about my working methods.
Enough waffle! On with the evening...
Bring on the C&C!
The painting is some prep work I did for a project in School. i think it reflects my current method of work quite well....dark ink lines with flowing water colors...
Right, these first drawings are some character designs for a university project about a little girl in a pink stripy tshirt that performs a different action in each page. This is a children's book themed illustration. We all got given one action for her to illustrate, I got 'directed the movie'. I started off with some sketches and ended up with a character that i'm pretty happy with. I went with the cute baggy look and this is the finished version I came up with...let me know what you think of the design!

Here's a drawing I was working on for a while. Now, I haven't really ever tried drawing in this kind of style and method, so it was also intended as a drawing exercise. I did enjoy it though, was a nice diversion from more usual working methods of mine but perhaps I'll do more in this direction from now on too. Anyways, the drawing is from a photo of a chinese lantern shop which I really liked, but I think i've gotten bored of it and leave it as it is now.

Started work on the finished piece, gna draw each bit and then piece it together on the computer! Here we have the girl sitting in a director's chair.
I think this could turn out pretty good.

More work in progress!
Added the Camera, shadows and a megaphone.
Still gna add a spotlight, a filmreel spilling all over and the text!
Also added another sketch of mine I did recently....better keep practicing!

The megaphone one has a really nice delicate style to it - good choices of colours. Keep it up!

Do you have any ideas what I should do for as a frame, if anything at all? I'm kinda lost there...

Just added a few little bits but I think im finished!
I'm quite happy with this actually! Not really like anything i've ever done before, but I liked it, might do more in this direction again.

Pretty much finished, just added the odd thing or two and changed some stuff around!
Let me know what you think, readability and composition wise and whether or not you like it!
I think I did ok seeing this was my first Children's Book style image really...
Edit: Replaced the image with the final one, removed some of the color....Quite happy with the text and image actually!

Just thought I'd share this poster design I did for University! Had to be themed in a 'Britpop' direction.

I love the dark lined/watercolor work. I love watercolor so I'm biased lol. Keep it up. That's a cute character as well, has potential.

Hey, stylish sketchbook you've started up here. You've definitely got a good eye for design and the watercolor look on some of them is a nice touch. I'm digging your latest post here, lots of interesting things going on (is that a panda I spy in the bottom right corner?) really makes me have to take a second look to catch the small things.
Great job, so keep those posts coming.
