    Struve's Sketchbook, :::Resurrected:::

    I've been meaning to start one of these threads for a while. I'm hoping this will give me some motivation to draw more.

    this is an environment concept i did for a friend over on gameartisans for the unearthly challenge.

    Struve's Sketchbook, :::Resurrected:::

    if you only do 2d stuff for the unearthly challenge you can do more then one, so i did this environment concept for another friend.

    this is my comicon challenge entry, for that contest you had to take an action hero and put him in a different time period. so i chose to do an old west version of the Punisher, good fun it was.

    this is just a quick redesign sketch of Lord Raptor from Dark Stalkers

    i hope to have more stuff up soon

    Hey! Great work here.
    Great paintings. My favorite is the second one, but I loved the concept of the western punisher.

    Thanks! i'm happy you like the Punisher one. that competition still has not been judged so, fingers crossed

    here's the breakdown, and a model sheet for him.

    I like the second environment concept. I always appreciate an artist's ability to convey mass and volume, something I see in your work. The rendering style reminds me of Frazetta.

    Love your sketches! The Punisher looks really awesome.

    The last skeleton looks like it has nice potential, but it looks perhaps a little flat to me.

    thanks Keith!

    you're right freakmod, now i look at him, he is a bit flat, i think it's because i had the same dark value all over him. I touched it up and did a edit to post, hope that looks better.

    Thanks Peetaer! i'd have to say most of my influences come from friends like Paul Richards, Kenneth Scott, Josh Nizzi, Nicolas Bouvier, and Ben Olsen. these guys have been pushing the bar for years and i hope to someday get to that level.

    here's some of my life drawings, these are between 5 and 15 mins each, done with vine charcoal. Kenneth got me using those sticks of vine and i just can't put them down now, hah.

    Really awesome stuff! Thanks for commenting on my SB
    I really like your work - how you can take a sketch and make a finished piece out of it (seemingly) so easily. How long do the digis take you on average?

    Thanks kitty! I'm only spending about an hour or 2 on the digis. I try to stick with the largest brush possible. Then work down smaller and smaller, as you get into detailed areas. I'm new at it and still exploring different techniques.
