    Mae's Sketchbook

    Edit 6 nov 2012: I suspended this thread at the end of 2011, with the intention of starting a brand new one. In the end I just stopped posting here, and always felt a bit sorry for it. I have a lot to catch up, a lot of new material to share, and probably a lot of useful advice and pointers that I have been missing. So I thought I might as well start from where I finished off.

    Old Presentation:

    Hello, my name is Mae, actually usually my work covers all sorts of genres, but I thought that here I would concentrate mainly on my more erotic illustration. I thought it would be nice to start out with sharing some very loose sketches (most of these are done in a couple of minutes..sometimes less), the ones I use to quickly work out what could work and what not, to be taken to a more detailed and complete form. I have plenty of these, so they are in no real order, and I will add on as I go (or as I scan the older stuff). Any comment or feedback welcome, thank you for checking them out!
    Mae

    welcome here!
    well, not much to say, I like your more or less stylized work, but my favourite is the first one. I like the face. I hope you will share some more pics where the expression on the face adds much to the sexy body...

    thank you...actually that is interesting, I am focusing lately on the action, but you may be right, there is nothing better than an expressive face.
    Ah, I just noticed that attachments are preferred, I'll try and edit my post.

    In the meantime, as faces go, I have this scanned and ready!
    cheers

    thank you, the intention would be to try to post on a daily basis, or at least quite frequently. But I doubt I'll manage to keep it up!

    Anyway, a few more

    @ muzzoid: yes, some things I do are life drawings. Actually one of the best experiences I had was doing a workshop where there was a model who held very dynamic poses just for a few seconds, and one had to capture the essence of her movement or body expression. Anyway in some cases, that's exactly what I try to convey here with the "quicker" sketches.
    and as full body goes, here is one from the onryo series.

    @ Lateman, Dan Valkar, FightingSeraph : thank you! that certainly encourages me to dig up some more stuff to show here! I certainly will later on...

    I love the angular, elegant look of your figures. They remind me of Klimpt, Schiele, people like that. Do you paint/ink/colour any of them to completion? I really like your style, I think they'ld make great paintings.

    I wouldn't have said any of them were explicitly erotic - except maybe "pull2". You grab a load of erotic photography and render it into your style. I'm sure that you can find erotic photography on the internet. If you want erotic, I'ld say exaggerate, look for the most humourous direction you can go in and go right to the edge of that humour and stop just short, or else go really explicit, bring it right to the edge of explicitness and the boundaries of taste and stop just short. Eroticism implies a kind of tension, a lean towards excitement that could easily be something else? Or maybe I'm just rambling.

    Keep up the good work, I'm subscribing.

    Donalfall, you certainly guessed my references, I have always admired the Viennese painters, I used to have both Klimt's and Schiele's posters up in my room. Actually some of the stuff in my sketchbook (the real one, made of paper) I haven't scanned or posted yet are mildly more erotic, so more of that coming soon, but in a way I see what you mean. In fact it's the hardest thing to do, find one's own personal twist on the genre (on any genre). After all eroticism is mostly in the mind (whilst a drawn nipple is just a circle, it's the semantics you assign to the circle). And that's exactly the purpose of this sketchbook, sharing my findings and receiving opinions.
    As for fully painted pictures, yes I do take some to that stage. In fact I do lots of quick sketches then choose what go on to the second round.
    I'll post now a pic done with markers (tria, tombow etc), in the onryo series.
    later!
