I've been coming to these forums for quite a while now, and after getting back from Dallas I feel much more motivated (in more ways than one) to contribute and participate more in the forums. This website has been hugely inspirational for me over the years, so many thanks to all of you.
These are just some samplings of images to get started, I encourage you all to visit my blog for some more recent sketches and paintings I've been working on. As of tomorrow (hopefully) I'll have a shiny new tablet, so I'd love to start posting some digital paintings and getting feedback from you all. So far I've been focused on learning traditional mediums, but on the long drive home from Dallas (and thanks to some kind encouragement from fellow artists) I was convinced that a bit of digital dabbling would harm no one. So with that said I now offer myself to the symbiosis of Concept Art.
Oh, and apologies for the awful photogaphy---maybe I should invest in a scanner...
These are beautiful!!!! Thanks for visiting my sketchbook. I LOVE working on quick sketches, but, in contrast to you, I'm looking for local long pose workshops around here. I really am needing to take some drawings through to the end. I feel the real test is in the finish with the choices one makes.
Will be watching to see what you do with digital. But, keep posting the traditional, 'cause your work is really strong.
Wow, I didn't expect so many replies, thank you all so much for visiting.
Obstbrand: Thank you, and nice adjective
Frank Gressie: Thank you, I can't wait to start digital
Peetaer: Thanks, it's very exciting to finally have a tablet.
Ethically Challenged: Thank you
AztcFireFlower: Wow, that means alot to me coming from you, I've been looking at your sketchbook for a long time now, and I am glad to hear you're doing long poses too, for me its very important to keep training in both. Thank you so much for visiting
Nadiamoon: Thank you so much
Tigermilk: Haha, thanks (I think)
Leonor: Thanks so much. My fantasy drawings are from imagination, for idea work I like to try and work on a figure's pose and gesture as much from imagination as possible.
DeeLock: Wow, thanks!
Here we go, some sketches and my first digital painting with a tablet!
A couple of these sketches were inspired by Janaschi's sketchbook project that she started with algenpfleger, here's a link to her sketchbook---they're both very inspirational, so please visit if you have time.
I might work more on the painting, but Ill post it up in this state, thanks for looking
