    Skertchberk

    Brother, I forget how long I've been a member, now, but I wager I've spent enough time sitting on my arse, waffling around on the sidelines.

    I don't plan on posting much of a backlog, because there's not much point in looking to the past when there isn't much of one to start with. I'm only hoping to go forward from here.

    Thanks in advance for any critiques you feel compelled to offer. Trust me, there'll be plenty of opportunities.

    Peace out.

    Figure a sketchbook would do better with some actual sketches.

    I can tell you are very confident in your lines.

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."

    Just an FYI... waffle and arse do not go together



    Nice portrait... sort of an Anime Jesus, or something?

    Cool anime'ish style. Subscribing.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.

    This is a really good start. More quasi-manga-ish human figures please.

    Long Overdue

    Not much to update with this time. Just a page of long-overdue sketchbook work. Been busy, busy, busy with other things.

    Awesome stuff! You seem to have a small problem with the farthest eye when doing the face in 3/4, but that can be easily solved. Other than that, great SB! Loving your colours and style.
    Keep it up!

    That's always been a problem of mine. I'll be sure to work on it more.

    Obligatory Check-In

    Time to get some older things out of the way that I never wound up posting here.

    I'll make no excuses for my work. I need to work harder, practice more. Always.

    Hey, good to have you back again, but how long will it last?? Heh, great updates though! You've got a great knack for expressive characters, i really like the white haired gal reading the book, lovely soft anatomy and popping colors.

    Keep it up, and dont leave us alone so long this time

    Ludic, pixel cheetah: Thanks, guys.

    Austen: Yeah, I'm afraid it's been a bit too long. I've been in the throes of game design and haven't made much time to post here. That has to change. I'm trying to take more time out to make things that don't have to stay under wraps.

    I see greater facial variety in those elves, and I really love the outfit designs on them, but you tend to make the other eyes really round on the other characters though.

    lovely work, your charter designs are great, and from your post of the oldies i can see a fair amount of improvement in pose and char design. Please post some more

    It's been a dreadfully long time. Between retail, concepting and directing art, I've had jack for spare time. Here're some lazy doodles and rough work that I've built up. Most of it is a mixture of pencil, ballpoint and Photoshop or Painter:

    Some gun designs for the game I've been working on (Emerald Kingdom). Not meant to be functional in a real-world sense.

    Apologies for all of the watermarks. These are pretty much taken as they are from my blog.
