    Love your sketches!

    More sketchbook doodles...unfortunately have been super busy as of late, which means not a lot of free time to do my own personal stuff.

    Last weekend I went to a Jewish heritage festival over in Daytona Beach. A lot of fun and good food, plus I got to study a camel and some petting zoo animals! The camels were more than happy to stay still...the baby goats and piglets...not so much.

    Thanks CKLamb!

    So this past month has been a wash for me in terms of getting work done, what with getting married and all that, BUT! I have been able to do some stuff on the side. This is for the most recent ArtOrder challenge - I'm doing my take on an Orc Shaman. Lots of dead animal viscera and furs.

    Back from vacation and getting into the swing of things once more - some recent sketch pages, and semi-final pass at the orc shaman.

    Thanks Swiezy!

    Not a big update today, so just some composition studies, spaceships, and monsters. I've also run out of paper in my lovely brown sketchbook, so now I have to hunt down a new one...

    Yarosh: Thank you! I always feel like I struggle with translating 3d forms, so it's nice to know that I succeed here and there.

    Okkoto: Thank you very much!

    I've been practicing with traditional tools lately...specifically, acrylics and ink. If I had to give one piece of advice that I've learned from all my recent endeavors, it'd be this: The amount of pressure you need to handle a brush is sooooooo much lighter than working with a pencil. With a pencil, I feel I can carve into the paper, skating the tip around like a blade on ice. A brush though I find I have to have a more delicate touch for the most part to get what I want. Not so much carving into the page, but kissing it lightly with the brush tip, flecks of ink and paint here and there. Oddly enough it works, I feel I can get the coverage of paint I want if I do it that way.

    And for god sakes, if you ever hear Dpaint, or Elwell, or Jeff or any of the other professionals on here say to leave your brushstroke after you've laid it down, LISTEN TO THEM. I tend to noodle, so I made a conscious effort to not mess with any paint I immediately laid down, and it cleared up so many headaches I've had with painting. It's sad how long it sometimes takes me to get these simple concepts.

    Enough rambling though, here's art!

    The raw inks of the Orc Shaman piece, before it's cropped down to its final size. It was done on Strathmore 400 series bristol board, and inked primarily with a W&N series 7 size 2 sable brush. Other tools used were a manga G pen, a tooth brush, and one of those super cheap plastic brushes that you can buy almost anywhere - those make the best splatter brushes.

    Psychotime: Thanks man! I actually saw your original comment in my e-mail and laughed. I have no idea how it gets bumped down so fast in the sketchbook area. It seems like 10 minutes after I post it usually is towards the bottom of the list, then after 30 it's already on the next page. But that's how this works, I guess!

    That piece came out really well. You're developing a nice comic book style.

    Thanks, Kevin! You're stuff is pretty sweet too.

    Here's the tight pencil for that color rough that was posted in the previous post. From here on out it gets printed out onto bristol paper, then inked traditionally before visiting photoshop again for color!

    Raw inks after it was scanned in. It still needs to be adjusted and have the red line removed before it can be colored.

    Hey. Just wanted to say that I really love your gesture/fullbody sketches, I can really feel the motion of each form. Also your style is amazing!
