    TGillette Sketchbook - 1st Post - 1/18

    Hey y'all, I'm a noob here trying to get off my ass & improve my skills. So, starting a sketchbook here in attempt to force myself to draw everyday.

    Just attended the Massive Black Revalations workshop in Seattle couple weekends ago & found it was the kick in the ass I needed to start drawing more. Had a fantastic time there, met some cool people, realized I've got a lot to improve upon, got VERY inspired & probably won't miss another workshop again.

    So, these are some of the sketches I did @ the workshop + a few I've done over the past week. Mostly pencil, ink & marker. A little Photoshop too.
    Hope u dig & by all means, if you've got any crits for me, please let me have it.
    Cheers,
    -T!

    Yay! I'm no longer alone! I've told you what I think about these already, but I'll reittereate that this new technique of yours is working, keep refining it. I want to see the tank girl finished, too.

    This latest piece I did for a show at the Ouch My Eye Gallery in Seattle this month.
    The show consisted of about 20 very talented artists & the theme was "Saturday Morning Cartoons from the 70's & 80's". My piece is my take on Smurfette. Was shooting for a little more realistic & creepy than the regular Smurfette, so I think I was fairly successful.

    These are really neat! Your Smurfette is really nice. I like her long tail.
    It looks really good in that frame too. Is that a Glicee print?

    Your greatest strength is probably your ability draw exagerated faces

    Holy Fuck! Your girls rock! You've managed to achieve what I'm trying to figure out with my girls... sexy but with style and almost cartoony. Can't wait for more!

    I love the faces of your girls man. Strong and sexy, but allso "tender", my english vocabulary lacks a little.
    Also, I love the colors you use. very lively.
    Looking forward to future posts

    Please take the time to give me some constructive criticism in my Sketchbook

    Love your style! I'm a big sucker for vivid expression and a bigger sucker for drawings that toe the line between realism and cartoon--semi cartoon I guess, for want of a better term. It's a goal of mine to be good at this type of drawing someday so you definitely inspire!

    Very fun sketchbook.Like the B&W marker pics the most, the crisper rendering suits your angler style more IMO than the smoothed out photoshop colours.

    Thanx guys!

    Skoda - Glad you like the Smurfette, I felt like I failed a little bit on that. A lot of people at the show had no idea it was Smurfette... oops. And yep, that's a Glicee print. Printed out very nice (got a couple left if anyone's interested).

    Smid - Thank you kindly.

    Sinto - Thanx, although I'm starting to feel like I need to draw more variation in my facial expression.

    Clochette - That one is definitely my favorite too. I'm thinking about doing a series of those... time permitting.

    Bobo - Thank you, sir. That's a big compliment coming from you, as I've been a fan of yours.

    Hilbruks - Thanks!

    Monotony - Definitely time for an update... I've been slacking lately. Got a couple in the works though.

    Maridius - I'm definitely there w/ you on the cartoony/realistic balance. Thanx.

    Sevans - Yes, I love working w/ markers. Cool results w/ no dirty hands.

    Quinn - Thanx alot!

    Here's a work-in-progress. Hopefully I'll make some progress on this over the weekend... I'll probably try to wrap up the pencils soon & start painting over it digitally:

    Thanks, Diego!

    I'm a little pissed I haven't had time to draw lately, but just finished penciling my Cowgirl & Boozey-Robot last night. Gotta make a couple fixies before coloring it, mainly her hand isn't actually "holding" the whiskey bottle. Also realized the gun gets lost in her pants, so gotta remedy that somehow...

    Nice updates Tim, this latest piece, Cowgirl & Boozey, is coming along nicely.

    The rendering on the cowgirls head is great!

    I love the burlapy texture! She doesn't really look like she's holding the bottle tho. LOVE the Smurfette!

    Finally finished this one.
    Thinking about putting together a "Drink & Draw" themed sketchbook w/ some friends. This is just a mock-up of my idea for the cover.
    This is Pistol Pam & Boozey Robo.
