    Sketchbook of DOOOM... learning to draw.

    Hello,

    Thanks for checking out my sketchbook. I appreciate all criticism, feedback, support, etc. I'm 23 and I've been drawing consistently for about 3 years now + the time I spent messing around as a kid drawing street sharks or any other scribble that could have a lazer gun strapped to it. My goal is to improve as much as I can and CA seems like a great place to foster that spirit.


    Enjoy!

    You have plenty of talent. I love the guy with the shield and the chainsaw on his back. Looks like he's just having one hell of a day

    @karikaertan: Thanks man, hopefully there will be more to come.

    @andres333: Thanks for checking it out, I appreciate it.

    Heres some life drawing practice I did over the past few days. I need to do this kind of thing more often, its great practice. There were some things I couldnt get right, but overall it was a good exercise and something to improve on.

    Hey, I've been making myself do some studies over the past few days and these are a few examples. I read a couple bridgman books as well as Successful Drawing by Loomis and I tried to incorporate some of their ideas into these... must improve!

    great stuff man. I like your lines. You have a very graphic style that uses a great spotted blacks. I also really enjoy your concepts. I would continue to study anatomy. The few that you have are pretty good. Get out and draw from life, that will really build up your ability. Check out these links.

    Dr poPcoRN: Thanks for checking it out and there will definitely be more

    IronFistGoon: Thanks for those links, thats some really good info. I try to draw people when i get the chance and I'll have to get around to it more often now that I've been reading up on anatomy a lot. Thanks for the encouragement, I appreciate it.

    Heres where I'm at on the WIP I posted last. I think I'm pretty much done for now although I know theres plenty of room for improvement. Feel free to tear it apart, I wont mind

    Izer: Details are my favorite part and sometimes I feel like it gets carried away. I'm glad you like it though and I'll keep up the studies.

    Sanskarans: Thank you, those are very kind words and I appreciate it I have a lot to learn before I can begin to compare to many of the people who post here, but heres to learning and progressing!

    Here is a Panda wearing Qing dynasty armor done partly for a competition on the League of Legends forums and partly just for my own entertainment. I have multiple steps saved if anyone is interested in seeing the progression, but for now I'll just post the final . I was really stumped on what to put on his banners because I didnt want to make it overly ethnic since its for a cartoony videogame. When I get a good idea I'll probably go back and redo the banners because for now they arent as rendered as much as the rest. Photoshop start to finish.

    Hey everybody,

    I finally finished something after a week or two of failed attempts. I guess it was just one of those off weeks, who knows haha.

    Regardless, heres a b/w (obviously) drawing of a Hell's Angels rider. I got the reference from an online photo album (http://rideamoto.com/2009/11/23/the-...s-angels-10999). The album has some awesome pictures in it and I'll probably use a few others for reference in the future. I believe the picture I chose for this drawing was one of Doctor Gonzo, Hunter S. Thompson's pictures from the time he spent with the biker gang.

    The problems I had with the drawing were that I made his torso a little too long and it was hard to make the biker vest stand out from the leather jacket. Its got its problems, but I still like it and I think its a move in the right direction.

    Photoshop start to finish, wacom, etc.

    @Ironfistgoon: Thanks for checking out my sketchbook again, I appreciate it always. The panda was fun to do, it was for a League of Legends character design contest.

    Lovely start to the SB, the gothic person with the hammer has a real warhammer vibe to it, I dig it.

    yoooo. The first one is a warmup I did on top of an older drawing and the second is something I started yesterday for a competition.

    Looks like its going to rain today so I'm ready to buckle down for a long day of photoshop
