Book update. Still putting along...
This my semi daily sketch excercise thread. hopefully i can keep posting as much as possible and get better with the C&C. thanks everybody.
I needed a new preview image so the first one is real recent...the rest are a dump of stuff that was a small enough file size to upload from my laptop.

Vincent Price-help? Critique?
Moleskine drawing. I like the pissy attitude but i feel like im losing it as a build up color. Could have just been an off morning though. My cat was violently attacking the dingle balls on the table cloth so i was half painting, half swatting kitties. I'll have to try to breathe a little life back into the linework once i have the color worked out a bit more.

jackpot_anjr90 -Thanks for the encouragement, I really do appreciate it. I'm really trying to devote myself to posting everyday.
laxon -I appreciate the color comment, I was trying out some different layer states and then painting directly on top of that. It still feels a little awkward to me but I guess thats why it a sketchbook.
Just playing with some stuff I learned with the last couple excercises I did. I'm looking to move forward and build up a good portfolio of CA...so if anybody's got some tips, feel free to shoot. Thanks

illustrator drawing. dont normally use it this way...but i wanted to see what it looks like if i use some painting theory with the vectors. ill have to try again when i have a sketch to work from because the wonky portrait thing here isnt working for me. i do like some of the weird shapes that happen though.

Nice sketchbook so far, I really dig what I'm seeing. Especially the ink brushed Vincent Price, the lines look fantastic and you're right, a lot was lost in the final colors, though I think if you just put the lines back on top of the colors you would give it back its much needed brand of Vincent Price charm.
keep it up, I'll be around!

Ok, so this weekend was of the suck. My wife was out of town which I thought meant a whole weekend of painting and making a hot artistic mess. No, it meant my cat freaked out and attacked me every time i tried to sit down to work- plus its sick so i couldnt just leave. Really frustrated, I popped in an old DVD and started drawing. I watched the Carlos Huante creature vid...so the similarities on this creature to the one he makes in that video are pretty funny. Part of the overall shape and maybe a couple textures are similar but thats to be expected when going off a tutorial. Just experimenting with a different approach to monstering.

I hate feeling like the last one to get a good joke or piece of info. i just downloaded the trial of painter 11 and almost pooped my pants. i remember using a really old version of painter before and i was like, eh. but dude, this was sooo fun. and no cleaning up charcoal from random spots on my face. 5 minutes of fun right here.

tiny upload today. very weak. but it was fun and i wanna do some more of these little guys. i was drawing really tiny in pencil and wanted to see if i could get the same feeling with Photoshop. good excercise for building up little character thumbnails to get a feeling for the character. (Theyre only about an inch high while i draw them.) basically focused on silhouette with a little erasing into it...

Some interesting stuff!
I also liked the zombie ink sketch, I really like the strokes on the bridge in the background. It looks like Sumi-e.

Ok, i used to be obsessed with Natural Born Killers. so those quick little gesture drawings i did got me thinking about funny or cool characters i'd like to draw...enter Mickey Knox. the exaggerated anatomy makes sense if you know the story. the guys a crazy man. anywho...there you go
i put in my WIPs too.

These are all work in progress pics. I am putting together a little noir-ish thing. there wont be color in the final but i wanted to drop a little in there anyway. its a sketchbook right...i can do what i want.
I think im going to do the actual pieces in ink because this is feeling too flat in photoshop. it just doesnt have the same teeth that a real brush does...at least to me.
eh, i just looked at it again...i think i just need to go back in when photoshop isnt acting like a scared dog and breath some life back into those lines. i like the sketch a lot more now.
