    Doodles, drawings, and other stuff from my brain (will update as often as I can)

    Edit: New stuff is being added again.


    After realizing I have been seriously neglecting starting one of these, I see now that I am out of reasons (valid or otherwise) to put it off anymore. So I'm going to start with just a couple of little doodles, and hopefully all will go well. For as long as I can remember all I have wanted to do with my life is draw, so hopefully we can all learn from each other and make dreams a reality.

    If you're looking at this now, thanks for stopping by.

    PS- If you have any tips or advice on what I might need to work on, or just see something in one of my images that I could have done better or differently then don't hesitate to let me know. That is the point after all right?

    Thank you Josh! I will try and do tighter more finished work. I find myself slacking off and not taking my time and studying properly, so hopefully I can remedy that.

    I call him Thumbhead. I've been relying on a lot of the same head shapes over and over lately, so I need to break that.

    Nice style... sense of proportion and movement.

    I think line quality would be a suggestion.

    I'll pop back in here and there.

    Thank you p sage. I agree with you, my line quality is pretty horrid for the most part, and its a problem that I've had for a while. Any suggestions on how to improve that?

    One more for today. A jock/high school athlete type fella. This was much nicer looking before I went in and darkened everything a bit too much.

    I really like your caricature/comic style. The lines and shapes are actually quite nice! But it's all pretty scribbly now. I'd love to see some more polished stuff.

    Thank you Pretty Angel. I will try and do some more polished stuff and a few figure studies (I need the practice) as soon as I can. I hope to do some color stuff too. There seems to be an issue with the images, so I will update again once that gets fixed, or maybe even before if I get to antsy for an update.

    Quick update here:

    1- A zombie guy head. Really what's more fun than zombies? Not that happy with it but its just a doodle so....
    2- Random guy with an evil grin on his face. I really dislike his hair

    I'm going to try and limit my personal art over the next week or so to figure studies and digital painting practice. I find both of them to be pretty intimidating but I'm going to take the plunge and see what happens.

    Two more here.

    1-A little shack type thing. The idea here was that a leprechaun, woodland sprite, or maybe even a squirrel with carpentry skills refurbished an outhouse into a home. The chimney is way over exaggerated.

    2-This guy was inspired by a bowling trip. Not based off of a real person or anything, but he's what I sort of think of as a typical high-roller bowler or king of the lanes type guy.

    Again man... good style.

    I think line quality comes about by loosening everything... even your grip on your instrument (be it pen/pencil/graphite/charcoal/brush)...

    Then you try and throw your arm into the movement from your shoulder.

    You do have to hold your instrument firmly enough not to let it wobble in your fingers, but you can do that with minimal effort.

    It's taken me a long while to get the hang of it, but my lines are starting to show improvement.

    Good luck and keep working.

    Thanks p sage. I will give that a try. I do seem to work more from the elbow with a relatively tight grip so I'll put more of my shoulder into it.
