Your linework is so neat! Thanks for posting the rough sketch work and the final lines for those environments. I love to see the cleaning process
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. Wow, what a great sketchbook you have here. I love the variety of your work.
Wow impressive work!
I love your recent environment layouts! The finished work looks so clean and well polished. I'm trying to get my feet wet with some environment studies, so do you have any tips on how to go about it?
Love the studies and I love that you draw anything. Great variety! Can't wait to see more!
Thanks everyone for all your awesome comments
Dracken- I'm always happy to try and help!
Aresa - Thanks a lot. I found doing small studies very helpful. 10-25 minuet pieces where the focus is just composition and perspective less then 6" square, sometimes as small as as 1-2 inches.
I also like copying from favorite movies. I just pause at pretty places and do quick thumbnails.
It's a lot like character drawing, lots of quicker focused studies. When you get around to a more finished piece things start coming together.
Today's post is lots more doodle-sized things.
Happy sketching everybody!!
Really nice stuff man, thats a lot of work.
Check out my work on ucheachonu.blogspot.com
Thanks you guys
Here's today's offering to the CA gods. I put a nickle in there for scale.
And another one with my trusty bic pen
Rhubix, I wonder if you have considered trying your luck at a more distinct style?

FightingSeraph - Simply put -no. My goals are diversity and employablity- not uniqueness.
Right now my focus is improving my fundamentals to the point where I can work in as many parts of the animation pipeline as possible.
I feel that style comes naturally and don't see any benefit to consciously forcing a specific style on my work. In fact, I feel adhering to a style would make it more difficult to adapt to the different styles and work flows of different shows and studios.
Any-who., Here's something I've been playing with. One of my weakest areas is story boarding so I've been working to improve that.
The video is a bit low-rez since the bg's are my usual tiny thumbnails.
excuse the mutating proportions on the character, I haven't quite worked out the one I intended to animate.
WOW your page 9 blows my mind, I am working hard to get better, can't wait to
see all the other 8 pages. Nice animations here, I have a lot on my website.
Hope to see you around my SB,.......
your stuffs great rhubix! your drawings are really strong and confident. you seem really focused on what you wana do with your art.
nice clean backgrounds
Here's today's haul
Great pencil sketches, would love to see you paint and render them!
Thanks for the awesome link on #212!
Thanks Zikes! There's definitely painting on my to-do list in the near future.
Today's post: Town doodle thing...
Love you storyboards your landscapes man this is great soon you'll be working at Disney!!!
Today's post is some bird guys done in red pencil
And another enviro-doodle - bic pen with some pencily shading
+ some quick goblin drawings. ~ 30 seconds- 1 minuet each, also done with my trusty bic pen.
Im an animator as well, really interested in ilustration too... Your sketchbook is simply amazing, you can tell the difference when an animator draws because most of the times theres so much movement in one drawing... (im not there yet XD). Great stuff!!
PD: loved the bird sketches XD
Hey there. I'm really interested in children's illustration as well.
I like your silly blob drawings and the bird guys, to name a few. But in general, your sketches are great. They have such individuality, the expressions. And your trees turn out very dreamy and loopy. I like that a lot.
I don't have anything constructive to say here, but I will say your stuff is great and i feel like I'm learning a lot just looking at it.
As an aside, what corner of Newfoundland are you from? I got to live there for about half a year and the landscape had a big impact on me.
rokushoxxx - Aishani -Thanks
MisPlacedhippos , thanks too - I'm from the Avalon peninsula, not too far from St.John's - I love it there and hope to move back some day >.< WTB Newfi Art jobs
More sketchy tings and some anatomy study things today.
Awesome update! Reminds me that I need to do more muscle studies myself... The rocky landscape from post 262 is also fantastic, I would really like to see an colored version of it. Keep up the good work!
Thanks MeteorCat , I'm glad you subscribed too ^_^
Baudolino- I have been meaning to do some painting so I started with 262 Thanks for dropping by
