    clayman101's sketchbook... update June 12

    I'll post more as I get it cleaned up and scanned in. But to start, here's one of the most successful Spideys I ever drew. It's a little old, I wouldn't approach it the same way now (the figure's right arm is so wrong), but I still like it. More to come.Attachment 305783

    Am I doing this right? I think so...

    I'm not sure yet how to add to a thread, so I'm trying it this way first, by replying to my own thread. This is a character I drew up for a project. I'll post some of the concepts I worked up before I settled on this design later. If you're wondering why I didn't draw the legs, I knew the character would not be shown below the hips.
    This is the "Bug Driver" as I think of her, in her development phases. You can see how I used notes from different ideas to come up with her. The colour, and the framed layout were both done quickly. I intend to do a proper design sheet eventually.

    Just press "Edit" in the lover right corner of your post, then go "advanced", then "manage attachments". Here you can add and remove images.
    Your images look very nice, but do you maybe draw them a little small? Would like to see the images a little larger. Linework looks good, but would be nice to see the more clear detail a bigger image would give. Keep it up!

    Thanks for the tip. I don't draw small at all, this size just seemed appropriate to post at. When I had a 1000 x pixel ratio, they appeared huge on my screen, wouldn't even fit. They both appear at about 6" x 5" on my screen, I'm curious if it shows that size on yours. I'll be checking your book post haste.

    hey welcome to CA sketchbooks!
    if you want to update, you did it right you just have to reply to your own thread
    editing is if you want to change a particular thread, for example the first one to change your title to like a different date to show you updated that day
    nice comic book style, few things in the first spidey bother me but you already noticed that stuff
    keep updating!

    thanks for the comment
    Your new colorpost looks good. Her left shoulderplate though, does not look quite right.
    To add a link o your sb you have to go to "User CP" in the above menu, go to "Edit Signature" and write a little something like; "this is my sketchbook, please comment", then put a link in a word or the sentence by highlighting it, and then press the globe with a link on it in the above menu. Add the link to your sb-thread and presto.

    good luck sir

    Busted. Good eye. Her entire left arm isn't the original. She used to have a staff that she held with her arm out, then up, gripping the staff. For what she was being used for, there wasn't enough space for the entire picture. So, to get her into her space, I had to get rid of the staff and change the arm to a tighter pose. I could never quite get the new arm to look natural. I should post the original sketch to show the pose.

    Welcome to CA! Good start. Some varied line thickness might make your linework pop a bit more. Dig the Spidey. Keep it up!

    mo' characters

    So here's the thing: This beastie is going to be turned into a 3D model, and I'm in the design phase. Imagine an enormous planet with enormous lifeforms. This particular bit of fauna is a parasite colony writ large, and mean. With the colony of worms, there is the main body which can be thought of as the spine, and the offspring, which act as the muscles. Each major muscle is just a smaller form of the main worm. The support structure is made of secretions from the worms, which hardens into incredibly durable material.

    This parasite has to be fast and tough, charging its potential host at top speed in order to drive the main worm into a new host. If successful, the offspring will remain outside to die, while the main body feeds on its new host, growing larger. When it exits it's latest host, it will be larger, able to create more spawn, making more complex 'parasite delivery systems' possible. Eventually, one of the discarded daughters will be large enough to survive on its own, keeping the cycle alive.

    This particular beastie, however, has been domesticated into a high speed battle/racing breed.

    I'd like to hear your opinions on what kind of direction I should go with the head. Keep in mind, it has to be able to pierce its enormous host at top speed with its skull plate. Personally, I'm happy with the body and head of the image on the page with the three heads. The head on the left looks too dragony, and the one on the right doesn't seem appropriate. The middle head is a different version of the smaller sketch, and has potential. So what do you guys think? If you sketch up an idea, feel free to post it.

    Thanks, all!
