    klortho's sketchbook

    Start off with some Painter trickery. This dark inky approach produces my best-looking stuff at the moment, but I definitely need to overhaul my fundamental drawing and painting skills.

    Last week's Character of the Week- a Where the Wild Things Are monster re-design. Done in Photoshop over a pencil sketch. Took a long time to do this one, maybe I'll try a somewhat rougher treatment on my next PS painting.

    Also a pencil sketch of a knight being hypnotized by a witch near a waterfall.

    Can't find anything wrong here, really digging the pirate and the monster, reminds me of those treasure island comic books.

    I like the smoking guy with weird glow from his hand, the Ogre and your EOW stuffs. I wonder how long did you make your sketches in average? And the naval hero one? I'm still struggling to achieve the more refined sketches as your stuffs here.

    Nice SB! Keep posting

    Thanks for the feedback.
    For photoshop paintings like I have here, it takes me 4-5 days, or 20-30 hours of work. I have found that I've improved somewhat in quality and speed by churning out a bunch of work one piece after the another. When I don't have time to work on this stuff consistently, I can't get into enough of a rhythm to improve.

    That's the improvement i want to make right now. But i don't completely understand what you mean by "churning out a bunch of work". Did you mean doing some works simultaneously bits after bits or queuing some works and finish them one by one? Sorry to have you answer a lot of question, I'm new in painting.

    Yes, queueing up paintings one at a time is what I mean.
    My advice would be this: If you spend a week on a painting and finish it on Saturday, start your next one Sunday, rather than ten days later or whatever.
    That's the kind of schedule I've kept for most of the images in this sketchbook, and I have found it helpful for improving basic art skills.
