I love the way you use the pencil in your drawing, really a great way of building up tone and shading. Really cool concepts as well.
Thanks for all the kind words everybody. Ill have to check out those file sizes aismira, thanks for the heads up.
Here's a few more of the sketches I've been doing.
Decided to work on some industrial design for the day. Pretty happy with the final product (for now...)
hey man great start to this SB, always enjoy seeing a good start!
With the spaceship I think you got a pretty nice shape, unique and well formed. But it would be better if you could cement some details in with little bits of extra geometry. Think about making those intakes really look like they go into the ship. Or having some insides of the cockpit viewable, or little bumps and dips on the surface of the wings.
You got the overall feel down pretty well so its something else to think about next time
Keep up the good work man.
Thanks for the tips PHATandy. I'm definitly going to have to be doing some more Industrial design stuff and i'm always really happy to see comments and critiques.
Anyhow here's an update on the Starfighter. Getting closer to being done but still some detail work and issues to iron out.
Those vehicle designs are really cool! Loads of fun little shapes to look at. I can see you enjoy playing with shapes. One crit is to maybe study value a bit more. Your figure drawings seem to be lacking a basic understanding of rendering and how light affects form. I'm looking for highlights, core shadows, reflected light, cast shadows, etc. A simple rendering of a sphere with a single light source will help show you all of the components you need to have in your figure. Keep up the great work!
Hey, guys. Kinda in a hurry so here's a quick post.
Well it's definitely more difficult to get art in on day's when i'm working, but I've been managing to whip us some quick sketches on the back of bagel slips...
Here's a quick update from my sketchbook. Just some quick character concepts and shape studies.
Nice drawings, especially the figures. I like the snake women from last year, but I can't imagine how she'd move! I'd love to see how an animator would approach that.
The spaceship has some perspective problems.
It wouldn't take much to fix them up. Good work, keep it up.
Hey, ive been out of town on vacation! here's some updates though. managed to find some time to fix some of those perspective problems in the fighter. Think ill finish it up tonight after work if i get the chance.
In a hurry!
seeya all later.
Finally got a chance to sit down at my computer and paint something. Just a quick facial study from a photograph.
Great work. I like the different daggers you made.
Though the bamboo forest is dense, water flows through it freely.
nice sketchbook mate. Especially colored pieces. Post more
Got another Facial study done tonight after work. Trying to spend no more then an hour/hour and a half on these.
Some more life drawing!
you're getting really good at those life drawings!! I would recommend practicing more feet drawings, so you can feel more secure drawing them in the future, try it with reference until you feel comfortable with the forms and then you should be ready for capturing them quickly with your life drawings! I also like those digital works, the last two have really nice values into them, keep it up!

Hey Dmoreno thanks for the feedback! I definitely agree that feet are something i need to work on. Haven't quite wrapped my head around the structure yet.
Anyhow here's a character sketch i'm working on. about 1 hour in.
Here's a quick update. spent about another 45 minutes on this, hopefully ill have a little more time later.
Thanks Cgaddict. Drawing the human head is one of my favorite subjects and lately i've been really trying to define it's volume through the planes of the face and skull. Really glad you noticed!
Here's an update on the character i've been working on. It occured to me that i need a pilot for the spacefighter i've been working on, so she may become just that.
I decided i really wasn't happy with some of the aspects of the fighter i've been working on. I re-explored some shapes in it and think it's starting to come together in a more successful way.
Think I'm getting pretty close to finishing up the fighter design, probably just gonna add the finishing touches tomorrow morning.
I think the pilot is fitting nicely with the ship at the moment. I might do a version of her all suited up eventually though.
Here's a quickie environment i started. The second piece is an illustration sketch i started awhile ago. I think I'm gonna take the time to finish it up.
Quick enviro from imagination.
working on the lava field environment for night and day.
