    Monsters and Hot Chicks. not necessarily in that order.

    i've been working really hard to try and clear up some space and time I can dedicate to drawing/painting/creatating again...a sketchbook thread sems like a good place to start. its quite sorry I am not in possession of a graphics tablet yet, i could never afford one during school, and am in the process of deciding which to buy...and at this exact moment I''m trying get my ancient scanner to work. So while my overall goal is to become proficient at creating finished pieces digitally, i'm going to be limited to posting well...just good ole analogue renderings..if i can...get...this...friggin...scanner...to work...

    the above image was done in about five minutes between meetings at work. work is a major obstacle impeding my progress at taking over the world. Its a horrible scan from the copier at work~not much a bottle to break on this ship, but it will have to do for my inaguaral image...more to come if this scanner comes to life.

    These are excellent! Especially the first one - she has a really pretty face and I love the gesture on the hand.

    I look forward to seeing these finished digitally once you get your tablet. I'd recommend the Intuos 3 if you can afford it - it's worth the extra money over the graphire series IMO.

    Hi Thek, thank you. the first character is my alterego...you'll see alot of her if i update this thing religiously. The intuos3 is exactly what i want (i think its too late for santa though). im debating between rx6 and 6x8. i think i might go slightly bigger as i've read online some artists getting frustrated with teh smaller. i'm sure there's a bunch of threads somewhere on this site i could research further.

    The sketch above was PondScummer...that is several years old. The one below is several weeks. I used to do a lot of full-range tonal graphite pieces on just cold press illustration board. i intended to shade her fully and then colorize the blood and gore digitally (one wing is slightly ripped out). I had to stop for some reason and just havent' jumped back into it. I think Im waiting for the tablet so i can just try to work on her digitally. i've got a lot of fears about messing up sketches i need to get over becaues its been so long since i just produced 800 a day i wasn't very partial to.

    the next few are all from within the last year or so. a problem i've had since art school is never really having defined a 'style' or a 'voice' for myself.i'm alwasy experimenting with different looks. i liked where this one was going.

    this is a lousy lousy sketch i did in like 3 seconds to remember a great concept...i almost forgot about when i started scanning stuff so im sticking it into to remind myself. i've got an obsession with drawing people strung out on psychedlic sweets.

    i was sitting in a panera for a half hour to escape frmo work...i wanted internet, and everybody with their sandwiches ws staring overmy shoulder...i'm not exactly in the middle of a burgeoning artistic and culture zone. people with sketchbooks are like extinct macedons around here. but yes...i recall wanting to do something with a futuristic girl with a slick hairstyle, crazy tattooes, and an elaborate peacock-patterned oriental fan behind her head as a decorative part of some crazy outfit.

    new character. im too lazy to do a double pass to fit the whole sketch together...her name is speed demon. I attempted to do a digital painting with a mouse...ill be redoing that someday when i've got the hang of the tablet. I also think she is deserving of a twin brother named road rage.

    so when you decide want ot a classically grecian themed piece of a winged pegasus bowing to the touch of a goddess like girl in a toga...youre left with the challenging task for finding reference for bowing horses and a complicated wingspan arrangement! hopefully i'l find some wings like what i picture and I can flesh this out a little more fully. I really wanted to do a girl in a toga with flowy fabric, ie alphonse mucha-y.

    so i 've got a more advanced concept on this layout laying around somewhere...its called Volcano goddess, Pele-esque (hawaiian fire/volcano baddass goddess chick). i had a concept of her hair/torso fading/flowing intothe background of a black volcano with the red/yellow/gold streams of lava flowing down the sides (the hair would tendril out into the lava). i don't know if you can ever see it on this scan, but she's blowing a small flame in her hands. its a godawful sketch but it was really more about working out the composition then getting details right (ignore the hands, please jus tignore the hands.)

    ... all also great Especially the one of the angel and the torn wing. Lots of great characters though, I really like the monster sketch - it looks loose and has real energy and character.

    I think you do have a style - to my amateur eye at least - that's evident in all you've posted bar maybe, Speed Demon and The Lollipop junkie.

    Haha...thanks Thek; i'll have to poke around see if you've posted anything. I have pages full of not great scribbles that lead up to some postable stuff. I'm still browsing around to see how much their sketchbooks people really post.I've never been one of those artists where every page is a gem. 96% is crap i need to scribble ut bfore i can get a decent page. Trees are def. afraid of me.

    dan valkar - can you tell i have read too many comics? Never mind for a girl. My fleshed out work that has more depth doesn't always betray my glossy page origins. But i can agree that influence shows in m y sketches. like your icon btw. and from chile...there's a lot of illustrators from your neck of the world making a spalsh in publications like Mad Magazine right now.

    Hopefully i'll get a chance to scribble something else and post today~

    wooow... i I wish I had your talent for drawing faces because poses are pretty easy to me.... but my only suggestion is to include more bodies. I see you have no problem with, but with bodies come costumes.... which you seem to aviod.... so yea.... other than that,I can't find anything wrong with your work(s).... Kepp it up.
    qabas12 out...lol

    anti- gracias. girl 666 has a lot of potential my mouse-painting did not bring out. She will be redone!

    qabas12- thanks! i have a lot of old bodies with costumes i've thought about scanning and including under here, but i'll be sure to throw some at you in the coming days/weeks. im the kind to alawys start with eyes and then i usually have to go somewhere before i can finish a body. that will have to change! otherwise you draw some bodies and i'll draw some heads and between us we'll have one functioning artist.

    woo! really nice first tablet sketch! You could host a pageant with all the girls you draw! But where are the rest of the tablet ones you've been drawing since the 14th?

    Nice style, very comicbook like and fluid! You certainly have a way with the ladies, in a very graphic way But drawing some more males would be nice as well, to balance things out. Still very impressive, keep it up!

    wow...has it been that long? i am trying to get the art side of me started up again...

    i have a tablet, and am trying to teach myself how to use it, and finally flesh out some VERY old ideas a little more.

    This is the bleeding angel sketch i've had laying around unfinished for 3 years. I'm not happy with anything I produce right now, except for the fact I am producing something.
