Starting a sketchbook finally. Hopefully I can update it at least once a week. I have some stuff that I am scanning it, but it is taking longer than I thought, so there may be a big load dropped off soon. When I say big that means like 5 pictures or something. I am going to try to start a comic but I feel I need to get certain things done first. Like up my drawing skills. Also I am trying to get into 3d a little bit so I will be posting some concepts that I have.
Here's a little OC I did while waiting for anyone to show up and sketch with me. No one did.

i like the head on the top left.
The clockworksnail Experience- SKETCHBOOK!!!
Okay. Here is some more.
This one is done in Col-Erase Blue and Ink. I just got the ink and tried it out on my roll of butcher paper.
Col-Erase and a different pen. Bit of ink wash and ink dripping here and there.

This one I am working on for my sister's birthday party. She wants it to be a masquerade party. This is the first image I have done completely in Photoshop so the colors and everything are expected to be sub-par. I am still working on this so any comments welcome. I don't have much time but this only took me 44 minutes or so.
Some more. I'm still getting images scanned from over the weekend. Plus I need some critique, especially on the masquerade one.
BrushPen. Armor concept for a game.
Col-Erase and Ink. (Hunt No. 102) This is one of the vehicle concepts for a game.
Nice start to your sketchbook... the ink stuff looks great.
Great start to your sketchbook, keep up the great work!
the masqurade one could do with some shadows...
like, put in alightsource and show the shadows on the face, it will look better for it, its all good anyway tho!

I just got a Tablet PC. This is one of my first sketches. It's amazing how different sketching is on a screen. It's like drawing on glass.
This is the first of what I hope to be many drawings of people from hel-looks.com. Quick good practice.
I've been using pose maniacs and trying to practice anatomy. I'm trying for a dynamic lunge and I'm having trouble with the left leg, Also, I have a spot to use this for my comic, but it wouldit leave me any room for an opponent in the shot. Or at least A facial expression.
Here is the invitation for the Masquerade party. I am getting closer to being done. Let me know what you think should be fixed. My sister wants to get it out today. Thanks.
A quick sketch before I go to bed. Reference from a before image of a plastic surgeory testimony.
I like the composition in the Masquerade Ball image. I think a wider value range (darker shadows, lighter highlights, more inbetween) would make her "pop" a little more, especially in the face and the mask.
Cool gestures and studies. Isn't Posemaniacs great? I just found out about it two days ago and am loving the timed gesture feature.
Thanks Teowli. I will probably go back to the masquerade image later. For now I have a sketch I did at the car wash. It's somewhat a self portrait.

One last update before bed. The first one is part of my goblin concept for my comic. The second was just an expression exercise.
Trying to take the previous picture a little further with contrast, shadow, and color.I know the nose is horrible I'm working on it. Any pointers world be much appreciated.
Okay. It's been almost a week and I haven't had much time to practice, but I found a copy of Andrew Loomis online and started reading it today. This is a portrait of my brother. Most of it is from memory. The nose, well I made him stand by me for a bit on That part. I don't know why the gif's come out so pixilated. The Second is a png of were I am at.
You're figures have really great rythm to them. excited to watch your progress
Thanks Jeremy. you make me want to draw better. A little sketch before work.
Okay. I finally purchased Sketchbook Pro 2010. It's wonderful. I just found out yen can have textured brushes. I'd feel like an idiot, but I'm having too much fun. I have two or three images to post, but only one right non. Anyone Know if you can lock transparency on layers?
I need some help. This is the first page of the prologue for my comic graphic novel. I really need help. To me this is ugly and I'm working on it. I specifically need help with composition and angles. I will be adding dialogngue/text later. But the main thing that happens on this page is a wrestling tournament. The main character sees his girlfriend holding hands with another guy. He goes home and sees the message machine.
Just a quick sketch.
hey man, you asked me to drop by so here I am.
yep, sketchbook pro is amazing, keep playing and finding yourself, find your brush.
For your comic book, keep a few things in mind when doing your breakdowns, primarily you have to tell the story without confusing the reader. Simple things like ensuring the character who is speaking first in a panel is on the left. Remember close-ups can focus, remember your camera angles are as important as the action in the panel both from a narrative point of view and to grab the reader. Of course, breaking with these rules can create an equally dynamic narrative.
You know in your head what is happening but will a stranger know who picks it up..?
Okay, keep plugging away at you draughting, comics are all about drawing, draw, observe, copy, draw, reference, draw.
You have a style I can see that, focus on what you want to show with your style, but underneath you must strive to be be the best draughter you can be.
keep it up!
great dragon sketch, nice amount of personality in the face.
to take it to a more finished sketch? Yeah maybe, I normally tidy up a sketch, they certainly don't look as neat as the final pieces. The tidy up is there to add details and ensure the form stands up, I don't want to have to rework too much at the 'inking' stage (though that will always happen).
If you feel there's enough information in a sketch to take it to the next stage then cool, whether that's to ink of paint, everyones has their own approach.
For inking, I drop down the oppacity of the sketch layer and then create an inking layer above that. I normally sketch in a different colour from the ink also, this helps to differentiate between the two layers.
Tightening up the sketch as suggested. Will keep working on it. Let me know if anything is blaring. I think I need to work on the tail.
