    The Frogisis and the Sketchbook - More pixels on 6/2/08

    Technically, this is where I should introduce myself to the boards as I'm kinda new here, but until someone makes an emoticon for "masonic handshake" I'll never be comfortable introducing myself online.
    That's why I'll try to let some drawings do the talking, instead.

    Nice to be here, and hope to do some fantastic art with you very talented people.
    Edit: Fancied-up the opening post a little.

    Thanks! Speaking of which, here's a test run for a series of paintings I'd like to make, if I can ever get beyond those "cartoon" backgrounds...

    POW!:

    Haha, your work makes me laugh (in a good way)!.
    You've got a twisted but cool sense of humour in these images. I think the one with the popes is my favourite!
    I can't wait to see the next update.
    Cheers.

    Thanks for the replies, everyone. Comedy is another major thing I do, so I'm glad when there's crossover like that and I can get people to giggle. Here's some more junk for your trunk:

    Now that the sketchbook has some heft to it, here are some more recent drawings I've been excreting over the last few days. None of them have the makings of anything serious or finished, so here they are, silly and unfinished.

    I keep drawing that little sausage-bird. It started out as a melty blob on a guy's hat in a sculpture, and has since moved onto a lot of different shapes, most recently a "sausage."

    Glory666: Thanks, that means a lot. Imagination's an artist's best tool! Feel free to put that on a tshirt.

    Zelda_geek: Thanks, I always thought fabric rendering was one of the things that's so distracting when it's not done well.

    Algenpfleger: It does me good to hear positive things about my color work. I'm usually pretty busy, so I don't get time to do as much coloring as I'd like to, thus the emphasis on pencils.

    Today we've got a pen drawing I started while waiting in a car at the airport this afternoon. I had to move at some point, so the perspective got a little weird. That smokestack was stained with all manner of weird-looking oil streaks, but here it just looks like a SlimJim...
    Next is a WIP for an agricultural robot design, for harvesting saffron flowers. It's going to be part of a presentation to apply for grant money to actually build the damn thing.
    Finally, a little bit of a nude study from a photo, jazzed up a little with my own sensibility. Wanted to do more, but I'm actually late...to go do more painting. I'll have photos of that monster up once it's a little more presentable.

    Trying to work a more on drawing and painting "virtuosity." To extend the music metaphor, I'd like to think I have the variety and competence of, say, Ween, but I'd also love to be able to jam like Hendrix, like some of the people on this board do.

    Haha, thanks. I really want to use that "buncha guns taped to a flamethrower" idea again - I've got this "redneck commando" thing I wanna try out.

    There's no real reason for the face. I just like drawing faces and I wanted to have something under the bed. Just something else to look at.

    Edit: Don't wanna double-post, so here's todays update. I was thinking about how so many people here have the admirable habit of practicing drawing every day, and how there's another, not-quite-as-admirable habit sometimes associated with self-described artsy people.
    Second one is just me screwing around. (They're both actually on the same page, but I split 'em and cropped out some meaningless scribbles.)
