    A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

    Figured I'd join the ranks and start a sketchbook. C&C very welcome.

    Dump of Nintendo DS Colors! speedies. I really love this little gem of a program.

    The environments in the last post are quite pretty. I especially like the bottom leftmost one (the canal). Your creatures and pencil studies are also quite nice. If you don't mind me asking, were the first couple referenced from a magazine or movie or straight from your head? One thing I've noticed, and you may already be aware of this, is that you sometimes draw your hands unusually small compared to their bodies. The second sketch is the most obvious in this regard.

    Great start, dude! Keep up the good work.

    Zweit: Thanks for the crit's. I was aware of the small hands in the second sketch but didn't realise the error was more widespread, so cheers for pointing that out. The first page was from a movie.

    I really love your drawings of the birds on telephone poles. Environments are so nice too, you should work into some of em.
    [thanks for commenting on my stuff!]

    very nice sketches, the environmental ones are especially well done. the iron window/gate? surrounded by leaves and plants is definitely my fav. so those digitals are all with the DS? that's pretty awesome, I'd give some suggestions but I don't know what the capabilities of the program are

    James Wolf: Cheers, man. The Colors! program for the DS has two brushes (hard and soft) and pressure sensitivity so it's really great for speedies and studies - and even more refined work. It's my own limitations that are the issue so any suggestions are welcome.

    Some dragon heads...

    These are really great! I love the fully rendered pages, how does the side of your hand look after these?

    I love those crow-sketches.. The bare poles are very cool too. I would recommend that you study some faces, yours are generally a bit off..

    insane lemur: Cheers, dude. Yeah my right hand is usually rather scummy looking.

    Kasper_P: Thanks. I do need to work on my heads and hands... and tootsies and torsos. Well, I guess anatomy in general.

    Trying out different Painter brushes after doing a spot of nostalgic gaming with Final Fantasy VII. The shoulderpad really throws the anatomy off but err... yeah. I guess this is fan art. Yuk!

    Love the crows and recent environments.
    I learned it as 'Five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told', though. I hate regional differences in nursery rhymes.

    hello


    great posts, unique style and the digital painting are greats !

    you've got high level of sensivity--> i am voting for you

    hmmm: one question ?

    your drawing of nature is far more beautiful than drawing of human, is it `wanted or something ?

    good luck

    your last enviro is great, love the use of texture and the palette is near perfect.
    The only thing is, the natural preconception of those darker lines in the road as tyre marks means that the figure appears very small. I don't know whether they're meant to be tyre tracks or pathways but the effect is the same.

    keep up the good work I thought the cg inks were wonderful.

    cheerio

    gorgeous work, i especially love the crow post, probably my favorite of all (loved the rhyme.)
    your first "speedie of the year" caught my eye in the speed painting thread so i had to come and check out your sketchbook, it's amazing, i really like the feel of it, almost like an old oil painting

    Good enviros here, or at least that last one^^ The pictures are good as well, I should get me photografi friends to look at them, just to be sure, but I think they are what we in golf would call a slam dunk^^
