    The Art of Roam

    Hello, everyone! I think this is probably the first post I've made here. I've been a member for a while now but I think I'm just now starting to take my art serious. Anyway, I wanted to share some of my sketches with you guys. Mostly for you guys and gals to enjoy but critiques are always welcomed!

    Thanks Lord. Its true, I try to do many different styles and many different medians. Latest of which includes Autodesk and Houdini. However, I haven't completed anything yet. I still have a lot of sketching to do before moving on to digital art.

    I think it'd be easier to critique if you get a little better quality scans; ie using flash/scanning pictures. Otherwise, looking forward to more. This last one has a bit of a 'rubbery' anatomy and flat shading, but the other stuff looks good. :]

    Thanks, I'm in the process of getting a scanner. These are pictures I took of the work. Some of them such as the painting are too large for a scanner. So really, I need a scanner and a better camera haha

    After the holiday break i'm going to be doing some life drawings. I've already been sketching a little bit and I thought I would share a little bit of it.

    Hopefully I will be able to go more in depth in this course and do things like this human foot.

    Just a little update. First arm life drawing I've attempted. The bone structure on the thumb looks horrible but I'll live. hah

    I rather enjoy showing steps of the drawings when I can. I still need to go back and work on this a little more.

    I've also been messing with my tablet a bit finally. I've had it for years but am just now getting around to getting used to using it. These are all studies done from fine artists work, photographers and I'll finish it up with some personal studies of friends.

    Feel free to give me tips on how to add more detail in CS3 or other painter programs! I am mostly doing digital work these days. Actually diving into some animation as well. I may manage to post some up soon!

    A few more sketches from my book as well. Basically these are inspired by the work of MC Esher.

    It's been a few days since I've been able to surf the net thanks to tech problems. Hope to get some new up soon.

    Here are a couple more I've managed to do with my tablet. I can't seem to find any decent information on blending in photoshop. I don't want to use layers to blend with. So i'm still working on finishing these.
