    Ankh's Sketches [Updated April 28]

    Figured I might as well finally open up a sketchbook. See ya around. Hopefully this will keep me motivated.

    Old miscellaneous images. Several are from this year, the rest are just ones I liked from my old portfolios.

    ...Will update with my oil studies and whatever random doodles I come up with soon. Thanks for visiting.

    Update. Felt artsy enough to attempt a self-portrait with a mirror.

    I learned a bit, I think. OpenCanvas, 1 hour (I think). I'll post the event file later.

    Verehin - Thanks. The 'pig' is based a reference of Bebop from TMNT for a friend's mmo clan, or whatever. I agreed to do the concept because - seriously - who wouldn't want to paint Bebop?

    EKOes - Thanks. I plan on adding more as I find time. Sadly, a corporate job keeps me from having the amount of time I'd like to create and practice.

    destinyapocalypse - Thanks!

    I bought a scanner and spent the last hour or two scanning and resizing images from the clipboard I keep at work. This clipboard contains all of my recent sketches done during meetings or downtime at home. I apologize for the dumb copy-paste job on the signature. I'd never meant for people to see these, so most were completely unsigned.

    I figure I might as well dump them all here so they have a place to live...

    [Edit: Several are mislabelled - and done in late 07 when I was working as a tattoo artist. If something looks out of place (like the "Only God Can Judge Me" set, and the praying thug, it was likely a client request.]

    Loving what I see so far! I am especially fond of the fifth drawing in the second post, not so much the subject but just the way you did it, the black and white worked really really well for it! You better keep posting, your style is great!

    Clessy - That drawing was done quite a while ago - when I first got my tablet. Though I like how it's probably the most "complete" picture I've done to date, it's also one of the least correct, lighting-wise. I'd like to think I learned a lot about hard and soft edges and the sort since then, but I appreciate your input.

    joseph-fb - If you're referring to the user "Hurricane" on these forums, I'd have to say you're sadly mistaken. Hurricane's work is phenomenal. One day...

    HFix - Thanks!

    sweet line work and crazy quirky characters! very niiiiiiiiiiiice. Itd be cool to take the control you got with your pencil and the texture/shading therein and couple it with some PS but keeping your color layers transparent thus keeping the pencils crisp... just keep the pencils on a seperate layer and then fiddle with the color layers settings....ie: overlay.

    smokenmirrors - Thanks for the suggestion. I've done a significant amount of lineart coloring in the past, and will likely end up doing a lot more of it soon. I should be getting a studio in my new place, so I'll be able to work off my drawing table and actually get crisp linework.

    jedininjaman - Thanks!



    Plugged my scanner back in today to scan in some legal docs and decided to update my sketchbook with more of the overly rendered doodles I burn time with in meetings.
