    Gumdrop's Sketchbook

    Hey all!

    I baught a new sketchbook a few days ago in an attempt to get back into my art, and thaught it would be a good idea to get a thread going to keep my motivation up and hopefully get some useful C&C. I also have a copy of Painter and used to like speedpainting, so I'll probably post my efforts in that department here as well.

    Here's the first batch I've done over the weekend...

    (Hopefully I can manage to get at least a page or two done on work days too. )

    wow, I love the tones on the face of that person in the cave. You should post some of your speed painting work, I'm interested in seeing it.

    Thanks AnthonyFoti. I'll be breaking out the tablet later in the week.

    Managed to fit a page in during my dinner break yesterday...

    Like you sketchbook. The skulls are awsome. May I suggest going darker on the tones. It gray on grays.

    Micaiah Nelson - Thanks for the tip. I was only using 2B pencils becouse that's all I had, but I baught a 5B and tried it out on the first sketch below.

    Gonna get down with some speedpainting at the weekend but here's a few sketches I managed to fit in during the last few days...

    i like the environment line work, try that on your portraits/character it is much looser, and dont eat apple while sketching!
