    Creative Drive

    I'm not sure how well I will stick with this sketchbook. I'm sort of notorious for letting this sort of thing go by the wayside by failing to update it regularly.

    However, my goal in this is to find ways to challenge and improve myself in my drawing ability. I've recently been seeing some glaring errors in some of my art, in both composition and technicality that I'm slowly trying to train away. In that sense, it'd be great to hear any helpful comments or critiques. I highly appreciate any kind of feedback.

    To start this off I picked an old sketch, but I think as I update in the future I will try to only post new material. Enjoy!

    Looks like I'm several days too late for the Zombie Santa Topic in DSG so I'm posting it here instead.

    Here's the original. I then threw a parchment back and some color on with Photoshop.

    Working on some potential css headers for my website... The raven is cool but I'm thinking it puts in way too much thoughts of Edgar Allen Poe. I like the sconces, where I'll be putting in a few lights.

    I'm wondering if an owl may work better for something akin to a "night shift".

    Blah not sure. I'll probably stick this into WIPs to get some feedback. I dunno.

    Just trying to fiddle with some colors and lighting mostly, since I think I'm fairly weak in that department. I know the angles aren't all right and it's rushed out.... oh well.

    I'm thinking of eventually making this a splash page for my website, but that's assuming I fix what's wrong with this.

    Hi,
    I love the css header.
    The ornaments and the clean lines go along very nicely.

    Hope to see more of your work!!

    It's been a long time

    Wow, New jobs suck for new art, but I've been a little bit busy...

    There's going to be a little more where this came from. This is pretty much just the result of an hour or two fiddling with open canvas.

    A WIP that's been sitting around getting no attention. This is a frustrating structure to paint for me. I'm going for a smoggy city look, but I'm just not happy with the colors. Not enough contrast, but with the smoggy look I want to achieve, that's not really necessary. I know the buildings in the background suck, and I need to fix the skyline...

    Thanks, HerrleerzeichenS. I definitely do know about FZD Schools but haven't had a chance to watch through all that stuff. It's always inspiring though. ^^

    Environments are definitely my weak point so I'm trying to get into it more.

    Fifty Faces

    Just challenging myself to draw better faces by using photos and media for reference. Studying all sorts of stuff. Gonna do that for a bit. I'm frustrated trying to draw the same old facial angles and similar features on most of my characters. Time to push the envelope a little more...

    It's also a great way to break in the new cintiq. :B

    Fifty Faces - 03

    Third face in fifty that I'm pushing myself to draw realistically. This one is just a copy of a photo again from one of my favorite movies of all time.

    Is that stone looking face one of those Dr. Who Stone Angels? "Don't blink!" Yeah... I like that show. Anyway, it's nicely done. Last update was in 2011? You should throw something new in.
