this was going to be a rough for the
Medusa the Queen CHOW/COW? thingie -
but I'm not sure she came out very regal looking.
I'm not sure I want her to, actually...hrm.
Yeah I gave her a hood again -
not intended to be the same face although...
damn. it kinda does look like the same face.

Yeah, I hope I've gotten better about that. The character sheets in flat color were done uniformly with one size brush and no pressure setting, so you are 100% right.

Haven't posted in awhile
So here is an image dump.
The line art for the cavemen vs. raptor fight isn't mine - just colored it.

This is a pretty nice start to your sketchbook. It's great to see that you're already starting to turn some of your ideas into 3D. I've only just begun doing this myself and wish that I had the means to do it a lot earlier!
I like some of your poses. It's always good to practice action and fighting stances in particular, and I can see that these are improving with each post.
Just a couple of small crits now...some of your drawings are incredibly 'fussy' looking, this is a great way to pencil out the start of a pose to get a feeling for the drawing etc however sometimes try cleaning these up further and using sharper and thinner lines in places. Also get rid of a lot of the 'smudging' that can be created by placing your hand over the image. I find it really useful to either always work with a pencil with an eraser on the end OR to place a piece of paper underneath your hand whilst working so that you dont lean on the rest of the image whilst drawing, this reduces smudging lots.
Also another good tip if you dont already do this is to finish your more detailed sketches with a quick misting of hairspray, as this fixes the pencil to the paper and stops it becoming blurred in the future. You can use a proper art fixative however these can be pretty pricey, hairspray is a lot cheaper!!
Keep posting and working on that 3D!!

sort of studies
Thanks for the C/C Chermilla - I think I use that roughness, smudging, etc., accidentally on purpose sometimes, so I don't have to bring something to a finished level--something I always have trouble with. Making an image look clean and crisp and "done" is something I should probably work on...
In the meantime, a few new things.

In the action pose, her right elbow is aimed at an impossible angle, but I don't have time to fix at the moment...

Nice work! I wouldn't worry too much about cleaning up though, a lot of your images look good with that rough look.

I'll be posting pieces of my school project up here for the next few weeks: the project is to create a finished-looking, fully rendered, color concept of 4 environments (outdoor & indoor), 2 machines, 2 weapons, 2 characters, and an in-game user interface mockup.
These are some of the thumbnails I've been working on.
There are no members to list at the moment.
