    Sulk-Sals Sketchbook of Kindy Hogwons Suck Out All Your Energy (8/19/11)

    I should have started on of these back when I was still in college, but intimidation kept me from doing so. It's been two years since I graduated from University of the Arts and I hope to do this as a career. I hope to be a concept artist. Fist though, I must improve. I'll greatly appreciate any crits I get here. Thanks for taking a look at my book ^.^

    I'll start with some older stuff (not terribly old, just from about second half of 2008 [I think]), just so there's a better idea of my history.

    The samurai from the above sketch. It was originally for a ChoW but I misunderstood the brief and made her a kitsune. Still finished it up though.

    A race I created just for practice called Eelavane

    -----------------------------------

    I've done the past few ChoWs, mostly to work myself up to posting a sketchbook, and I have to say I've been learning a good bit. I won't post the two complete and utter failures, but here are "Bowerstone" and "Female Sith Lord":

    I hope to keep this updated, as well as to add some backgrounds (which I'm sure you can tell I'm very weak in) and some 3D work.

    Some new work from this past week (gonna try posting these a bit smaller too)

    I'll start with last weeks ChoW, the Queen Consort:

    Sketch:

    Finished:

    Next are some personal projects. Naar-La:

    Name:  naarifullbody.jpg
Views: 881

    Naar-La's sword. I wanted to start getting into 3d again, and I figured I'd start with something basic like a sword. Texture to come later.

    After getting a crit from daestwen and Chate Noire about my style working against me, and to try working without lines (varying widths or no lines, hard for me to wrap my head around the former though. Hard for me to be fluid), I came back to a style I used earlier. In UArts I worked in Illustrator till second half of Junior year. However, because I could never figure out how to use texture in my work, I decided to use ink and pencil at the crit of a fellow student. So, I thought I'd give it a try again. A small experiment:

    And I'm going to do this, and the Chow this week in this style to see how it works. Any tips, crits, etc would be great ^.^

    Too long since I've updated. Although I did have nice project for the past few weeks, but I've worked on these in my spare time. None of these is even remotely finished.

    I'm still worried about texture, but I'll worry about that when I come to it. Thanks for taking a look at my work.

    Bleh, way too long since I last posted. At least I was somewhat productive. Did find the thing I was missing though. Thanks for looking at my sketchbook.

    I like the style you have going, the blockiness and the thick black line art. I envy your imagination too. These are fantastic creatures. Naar-La is awesome! I like her humanoid form better, something feline about the face that is more appealing. You're very creative and I envy that, I just think you would benefit from knowing the underlining volumes and anatomy better. When you're sketching in pencil you are already worrying with the finished style. Maybe you should worry with making a correct and consistently 3D figure and then apply your style to that.

    Leonor - Thanks! That's something I got to work on. I can copy well enough from reference, but understanding the form is a different story. I went and found some Loomis books online, need to get sketching from those.

    So this time I'll begin with sketches:

    I also decided I need to work on actual faces so I took some pics I had of some friends and tried it. The sketches (and the reference) suck but I learned a lot.

    Then just for fun I tried a new character I'm developing. She's the same race as Naar-La, just a different ethnic group.

    And I am also a WoW dork, so a project I'm working on involving my characters (or at least the two I've had the longest).

    The human seems way too small, even set next to a Draenei. I'll have to make her taller so she doesn't seem like a child.

    Besides being almost two years since I last posted, it's been quite a long time since I even made a finished illustration. It has been time well spent though.

    I chased a love I left behind when I was younger. It took too long to go after her, but two years and 12,000 kilometers later I have married the woman of my dreams. Now though my job is sufficient to care for our needs, I would like a better career (being a kindy hogwon teacher is so draining). Still, enough slacking and time to get to work. I can hopefully update a lot more often.

    Then again, anything will be more often than 2 years ㅋㅋㅋ

    (Korean practice drawings are from "Korean Art Book" and since I can't read Korean yet the information needs to stop there)
