Thread: Master Pug's Sketchbook

Master Pug's Sketchbook
So, I was going to delete all of my posts on my OLD sketchbook and then continue to post...but the SB was 8 pages long so I decided it better to just start over.
For those of you who have never seen me before, I am the Master Pug. I am not a full time artist, but hope to be some day. I have a degree in Studio Arts from the University of Idaho; and my current artistic focus is learning this darned digital paint stuff. As I go, any help / comments are always welcome. I LOVE CC!!
This first one here was one of the later posts of my last SB, and the rest are just some of the "better" things I have done. Might as well start with a bang, eh?
Oh, since my scanner is down right now, most of the posts will be the digital stuff I am trying to do. I know not all of it is good or even close to what I can do with raw materials (pencil and pen and ink being my favies); but I am still learning. Anyway, as Mario always says, "Here we GOOOOOOOOoooo......!!!!"
*removing old items to consolidate also so they thumbnail updates - out with the old and in with the new!*

Hey hey, I like your interesting use of colors and imaginative character designs. There are some issues with anatomy, composition and the like, but the basics are there I think...nothing a bit of practice and persistance won't solve. Keep at it.

Zeroe: Thanks! I am trying to do a bit more with it - more characters in a shot and such but haven't gotten it to work yet. Also need to work more with environments. Hopefully this next one (since it is recent) shows I have come along a bit. The composition isn't bad, but I wish I could have worked on a more detailed BG besides the abstract. Still, I think this will be one in a series, so it might not matter.
Here is the newest. If you read the above you know that this may become one in a series (the whole series being 5). This one is titled simply "The Bitch". I am afraid I can't get any more detailed on this character other than the title. 'Fraid that would give away too much.
Anywho, got scanner up which is why I could do this piece at all. I am SOOO glad I did. Hopefully this means more work, which means more posts, which leads to more people looking at the posts, and more recognition. As they say in art:
Step 1 : Make Art
Step 2 : ...
Step 3 : Profit
*Edited for same reason as previous post - now no nudity, welcome back kiddies!*

More sketches. Actually did these BEFORE the one above, but didn't get around to getting them scanned until today. I am noticing that the Thread is not showing the most recent as a thumb in the Sketchbooks section. Not sure why. If anyone knows how to fix this, I would be greatfull. I'd like the newest post to show.

rig4red: Haven't heard from you in a while. Glad to see you joined up if only to be enigmatic.
Here is the newest I have. All sketches, nothing really finished. Hopefully that will change when I take the most complete of them below to the "final stage". I do realize that the Death Knight (obviously I am feeling in a Blizzard mood as you can tell from the post) is a bit off balance in the large pic, but I am not sure if I am going to fix it or not. I probably should, but it might be something I just acknowledge and let slide. As you can also tell, I did adjust his armor a bit from the previous sketches.

So, I had to shrink this sucker down a lot to get it to upload. Hopefully you can all see where I am going with it. Not sure if I want to do comic style coloring or try painted. As we have seen, my paint needs work. Maybe comic first and then paint over it later and have both. Hmmm....
*more finished version of this in later posts - and like the other posts, taking a much more handled way of doing attachments

Fresh off the old brain grill. Still a WIP, and by no means final. The type was really because I wanted something that LOOKED interesting even if it doesn't make it to the final stage.

Eh up masterpug! thanks for your comment and poppin by...took me a while to get round to browsing again and I'm really liking your stuff. The deathknight especially, I have problems keeping my colours flat (I mean tonally) and tend to overwork and have to pull it back, do you use masks?

Trancelucent over the text thing looks cluttered. I think it will look better making it look like a background, like a map or stained paper or something.
Perhaps not making them pitch black could make them appear behind the character or some overlap tricks. or perhaps just reducing the amount of text.
Scetchbook: View the exhibitionist's stuff.

Jeff Bartzis: Thanks for returning the favor. I will stop by your SB again here in not too long. I promise to keep on drawing, even if my posts are infrequent.
Angel Intheuk: I know what you mean about the color. That is one of my few semi-successful works with color (as you can probably tell most of my stuff is B&W). Thanks again for coming by, and many happy returns!
zaorr: I agree the text can be distracting. In truth, the piece isn't finished, but I don't have the persistence to work on it right now and have been drawn away to drawing other things. The idea is to have the text fade into a background (unreadable for the most part); so in the end it should not be a problem provided I can draw a background.
So, big post this time. There is some graphic violence, so the young may want to back off this one. Since I already have some nudity, I don't think it is anything out of line. Anywho, thanks for those of you who have stopped by since the last post. While I can't say I will be posting like this all the time, rest assured I do plan to continue with my art - wherever that takes me. ^_^
