    Eric Lothspeich's Sketchbook

    Here is the first image for my sketchbook! It's a character design I did for my college senior project. I'm still figuring out how to do all of the attachment stuff. This was like 250 KB and I can only upload one or two at a time per post, so I guess I'll do another one tomorrow or something. Critiques are welcome!

    you just have to upload the files individually, Eric. That's a great character sheet, very professional looking. I like the stylish horns or claws around his mouth. It would of been interesting if you brought some color to the wings just so it wasn't b&w.

    Very nice start! Characters are adorable, style is professional, linework is solid. Maybe the shading is a bit too smooth but that's just nitpicking. Can't wait to see some updates, man! And just as Dannelf - I'd love to see some real life studies too.
    Keep posting!

    I'm trying this new thing where I focus on the overall image instead of individual body parts. Duh, Eric. I'm also trying to improve my weakness…faces. Hands are next. I'm comin for you hands! This image is from The Nude Figure: A Visual Reference for the Artist by Mark Smith. Great book. Highly recommended. More to come soon!

    Cute and cool!
    Your linework is real nice. Are you aiming for the animation industry?

    Do you also do life drawing? If you have the possibility I would recommend this over drawing figures from books.

    Your character designs for your college senior project are really cool. I really like the creative ways you designed the bees to match their personality or function

    Your designs and colors work quite well together, both are very soft and pleasing to the eye... Relaxing I would say. The color (shading and saturation basically) reminds me of good and old megaman zero artwork. A little washed out (not in a bad way) and quite flowing.

    Good stuff man, post more! I'll be definetly saving it for inspiration!
    Cheers!

    that last figure looks really dope! rendering technique looking good, not done too fast, not done too slow. also, the figure looks very balanced and the feet seem so firmly placed on the ground.

    anyway, great work, let's see some more! holla back

    Latest image. Was thinking of a major battle in an alternate 1940's tech-world with battle-airships.
