Well, after years of off again on again relationship with visual art, I am going to try to give it a go for real. I am starting this sketch book with the intention of updating regularly and hopefully getting feedback that will help me improve. Right now i generally work in pencil, then ink, then computer color. I currently have no scanner, but I do have a digital camera. (Does anyone have tips for photographing a sketch book in a way it doesn't look all gray?) I have a wacom tablet on my christmas list, so hopefully that is where I'm going.
Here are the first couple things I have done, since joining the forum. The first is a robot with roots for moisture extraction when moving through clouds. (DSG 1432) It was hand colored with half tone brush markers and photo retouching pens and then the cloud and lighting effects were done in computer. I like it in general, except for how flat it looks. I want to work on making my typically flat drawings look more dynamic. I should have defined the clouds more, as well.
The second is a sketch of the Marvel Comics character Karnak, who I like to draw. (His head is meant to be tall) The legs feel too big, but in checking proporions i can't figure out why. I suppose they are too big around. Really rough. He also looks more like he is stretching rather than striking a fighting pose, and he is off balance.
