My name is Chris Hilbig a.k.a. theYiffer. I decided after listening to Manley's web-seminar from, I guess two weeks ago, about creative business, I decided too take a page out of ManCandy's book and start an online sketchbook. (I plan to keep a duplicate over on CG Society.) My point and purpose for this sketch book is to improve on both my accuracy and speed. I feel that I have quite a few weaknesses in my work including proportions, light/tone, and (I wish I could think of the third one) but I'll say color for now. Color's a big stumbling block whenever I paint. Anyways, I originally intended to link to my photobucket account, but that's against the rules... That's okay.
I mainly do cartoonish type of stuff, thanks to Disney and Warner Brothers. (Or better yet Carl Barks, Floyd Gottfredson, Romano Scarpa, etc.) That seems to be my comfort zone. I do wish to sharpen my skills further so I can draw more realistically, and not with so much frustration. There are a ton of awesome artists here online and here at CA. I understand that skill-wise, I have a long way to go.To give you more of a vague idea of what I'm about or like, I'll start with the following samples:
1.) Character sketches for a story I planned to submit to Radio Comix
2.) Sketches of a steam-punked tanny
3.) Pencils from page 14 of that same submission
Any comments, suggestion, etc will always be greatly appreciated.
