    Muttonhead's Book of Sketch (New Stuff!)

    My old sketch thread is dust in the wind, so I begin anew.

    These are basically quickie, digital thumbnail sketches, which I use as the first stage of creating a new piece....

    sweet! I dig it. Especially the one of the two guys sitting over the table with the head. Would love to see that one taken to a finish.

    This is some very nice work you've got here. I like how you seem to capture the image with a couple of brushstrokes. I really like the imagination you put in the pictures.

    Cheers.

    Thanks guys! Yes, I know my posting is inconsistent at best, but it's our imperfections that make us human, right? Right!?

    Anyways, I have decided to enter into the fracas known as Dominance War III. So here are some sketches of some ideas I have been playing around with:

    Fantastic~~
    Your thumbnail is just an eye candy, it express nice mood; and your character design, gosh, don't know how to put the words.....it seems like you know them as yourself, that's what feel I got from your work anyway. Hope to see some colour work soon.
    Brilliant!!! 5/5!!

    It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........

    We are all just dust in the wind

    Lovely stuff, Sean. Heaps and heaps of imagination and invention. I like the way you work and work into your pencil pieces, too, without worrying too much about smudges and stray strokes. It gives everything a nice patina.

    Five gleaming stars

    Keep up the excellent work : )

    Always enjoy your work man! The sketches look awesome, loose and accurate.

    Watched the interview you had at the Seattle Workshop and thought it was a really great interview.

    Keep posting!

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I really do appreciate it!

    Here are some sketches of real-life stuff. Some crazy guns I saw at the Walters Art Museum, some ceremonial Child Armor, and a Gothic church tower I can see from the 14th floor of my Downtown Baltimore Apartment:

    I like you what you've posted here. I like the variety of it. In your last piece with the building, the light source is bothering me. I think that you need to clarify it somewhat, because there are strong highlights in places that I don't see how there could be. Just a suggestion, because I like it a lot, but the light is not unified in its direction I would say.

    Keep up the good work.

    Great job on the Dominance War thumbnails - you've got some great silhouettes and design motifs going on. Your pencil work in general is really nice. I particularly like those two pages of compositional thumbnails - very impressive.

    Looking forward to more,

    Ta, Nick.

    I like your pencil stuff man!

    But there is something disturbing me about the paintings. I think it's the way you use your brushes. (transparency+ size on pressure?) what about trying bigger brushes + transparency on pressure?
