    Zombifried's Sketchbook

    Hello, I'm new here and would like to post some of my shi...stuff.
    This one I did as an entry to a Detroit art show, called the Dirty Show (it is the 10th year running), which is a collection of erotic, (and sometimes pornographic) art, performance, films, etc.
    The idea behind the piece entitled "Come, Maggot", is kind of a master/slave motif, with the slave being a sort of humanoid, mutant-male genitalia. And it has a tongue too (ewww!!!) It is graphite on A4 paper...Nothing fancy.
    This entry was rejected by the official Dirty Show jury.
    Critiques and trashings welcome,
    Bring it on!

    More stuff

    This is an older piece, but one that I'm kinda fond of...Can't sell the f***ing thing though!!! It is watercolor on medium-weight drawing paper. Critiques encouraged.

    You are really going to have to post more things if you are going to get more feedback.

    But for the first image you need to work on your anatomy. Referencing photos would probably be useful for things like the shoes. The shading makes no sense at all, work on your classical lighting. The composition is also very boring, mix it up a little, something like this should definitely be more dynamic.

    As for the second image, please post something you have done recently, I am sure you have improved since 5 years ago.

    It's an experiment...

    Here is a pencil sketch,
    then ink and acrylic washes with some colored pencil.
    I felt it was getting overworked, so I took it into Photoshop
    took it back to gray-scale, then played with lighting and added some mist with the airbrush tool.

    Blythe,
    Thanks for the critique. I agree with what you said about the first piece.
    You brought up some good points to consider. I actually asked an artist friend of mine to make some suggestions as well. For a start I'll post some lighting suggestions he made.
    This is just a rough reference for future more finished changes down the road. I'd like to know what you think, and if you have more suggestions please feel free to make them... Also feel free to download the attachment and make your own suggestions (circles, arrows notes, mustaches,whatever) if you want. As for the second piece, the copyright is from 5 years ago, but the work is actually 10 years old. It's also more about stylization, than it is about realism. Even though it's old, I felt it relevant to include it. Concept art can't all be about the same things. That would be pointless and lead to blandness.There has to be some open-mindedness and some avenue for invention, and creativity. After all, if there wasn't, where would Tim Burton have fit in?
    Thanx,
    Zombifried

    figurative sketches

    I am going to try to mainly concentrate on life drawing from now on in this thread. Some quick (90 second) figure sketches.

    More spheres (I can't get enough of them!). Boring, I know, but essential.
