    Dragon design... of sorts. And babes(big D/L) 11-02-03

    Hey all! It's been a while since I posted here. Didn't have internet for a time and I've been busy with school. These are the very first three pics I've done for a school project. Working on a character that is nomadic and kinda on her own in a rather run-down world. It's all still a bit vague in my head, but it's becoming more clear. So, I'll be working on this for the whole semester and just post things up here as I go along...

    This is the first page. Really just getting some sort of simple idea to start from.

    Here's the second page. If you hadn't noticed, I'm a fan of simple weapons. They look more effective, and this isn't a fantasy based story... it's supposed to draw a lot from history.

    And here's the third pic... not a full page yet ;p. She ended up looking a little too sweet. I need her sort of more bad-ass, though a sensitive side couldn't hurt.

    So, these are all done with a combo of Col-erase pencils (Tuscan Red or Blue), white Prismacolor pencil, and 2B graphite pencil in an Earthbound recycled sketch book, 8 1/2"x11". Yeah, that's it for now I guess. More later

    great drawings
    i especially like the tribal facial designs on the latter ones. And i think the dreadlock heair works better than the straight hair.
    no crits from me

    Nice colours and technique (It is pleasure to see some natural media) I most like 2nd. Onley think that you need to make construction lines more precise (in the 3rd nose and mouth looks banded to the her right.
    It would be nice if you make some beafore-in the midle-affter work, also Im wery interested about materials u used.

    hey phuzionb looking good here

    my advice would be to look at more cultural reference

    the MAori tribes of New zealand have crazy face tattoo designs, and alot of the islands off australia like Papua new guinea, and macronesia, etc, have really wild designs for costumes, face paint etc

    theres also a really great book called "decorated Skin" a world survey of body art""

    by cArl groning

    good luck with the project--ty

    Hey peeps! Thanks for c&c. I always appreciate it.

    Mysen: Yeah, sort of. I look at cultural stuff that I know goes along the lines I want, and as soon as I get inspired, I start to draw. But it's only the beginning. I'll pour over a lot more references before I'm done...

    AmadorL: I agree. I think the second one was working out the best. I sort of added a new aspect to her though in that she's also a dreamer, so I want the sort of whistful feel to her from time to time, but I'll tackle that a little later. Thanks though... ;p

    zeroe: Thanks a lot. I like the dreads too. I'm deffinately keeping those, but I'll probably add some beads and trinkets too.

    Danilo: Yes, I'm a big natural media fan when it comes to concepts. I agree about the third one. It got away from me a bit and the features started to float around a bit... I should have gone to bed in stead ;D. As to the media: All of them were done in an Earthbound recycled sketch book; I started out with a Tuscan Red Col-erase pencil, then came in and made the hard lines with a Steadtler Mars Lumograph 2B graphite pencil and did the highlights with a white Prismacolor pencil. I found if you do a light cover of white, then come in with the Col-erase afterwards, it has a very creamy texture, which is wonderful for shading. Anywho, thanks a lot ;p

    Blind: Thanks B! uuummm... see the reply to Danilo for the mediums, heh heh.

    Tyboogie: Hey, thanks for the advice. I'll deffinately check it out. She's really based in the Indian culture, but I certainly want to mix in some other stuff too, so the tats and what not will deffinately help. And I'm gonna check out that book. It sounds great. Thanks again!!

    Okay! that covers it! More to come in a few days I think ;p

    This is the start of the environment. It's pretty much a desert setting, if you couldn't already tell.

    These are obviously weapon designs. Trying not to get too fantastic. These are all spear tips.

    i like the last face design the best
    it has very interesting markings without being too cluttered, and also she doesnt look so innocent as the others.

    great job on all these concepts, i really like how you rendered the weapons, great stuff! cant wait to see more!
