    Hannah McGill's Sketchbook

    My website is here.

    This sketchbook will help me redesign my website and also fill it with brand-new projects by the end of this year!

    The attached bee image functions as a logo and a sample of what I can do with Adobe Illustrator CS3.

    I hope to make friends and get feedback. Thank you for looking!

    Here are a few of my favorite illustrators:

    Mary Grandpre
    Tim Jessel
    Mike Wimmer

    And some of my favorite comic artists:

    Walt Kelly
    Jeff Smith
    Tom Sidell

    I will update this post as I find more artists that I like and aspire to be like.

    My style is suitable for a wide variety of commercial interests. I'm looking to expand more! I'm trying to take elements I like from each of my favorite artists and incorporate them into my own style. For instance, I love Mary Grandpre's ability to define form in a stylish, different way. I adore Tim Jessel's characterizations and Mike Wimmer's attention to detail, but I also want to incorporate the fluidity present in Walt Kelly and Jeff Smith's works. Gunnerkrigg Court is inspiring because Tom Sidell created and launched the comic all by himself, and it is seeing a great deal of success. (I also like his characters, but that's more of a sidenote.)

    While I'm hoping to go into an infographics-related career, I think storytelling is an integral part to any piece! Even if the story is how the stomach functions, or bird migration paths, or a physics word problem.

    Um. Um. Maybe, Gmc9987. And thanks for looking, Grayslayer!

    Okay so now for the Sketchbook part of this. Here are some sketches and colored illustrations I did for a 48-hour game-art marathon. They totally count as 'unfinished' for now because we're still working on the game. It's for an iPhone game that will eventually be released for reals!

    Here is more about the game!

    The gist of this game is that you play one of four nobles and you enlist subordinates to sneakily murder the other nobles. Since there are three weapons, each noble has three possible ways of dying. Here is the Blue Noble, named Damien Vile. Nobles can be killed with Rat Poison, Rope, or Shrubbery Shears.

    I'm having a very hard time finding a life-drawing group. In this set of sketches, there is one study of my hand and a whole lot of other sketches from imagination. I know I need to do more. In my next post, I will scrounge up stuff from my life drawing classes to prove that yes, I study art pretty seriously.

    Thank you Twan and Grayslayer for your comments. I did have fun with Haberdashery and am still having so much fun! The game's first version is released here, in case anyone has an iPhone or an iPod and wants to try it out (feedback appreciated): http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id353941606?mt=8

    We're working on making the game look more Victorian at the moment.

    Anyway, onto random sketches.

    I've been revamping my anatomy hardcore. Here are arms I've been drawing!

    Still haven't found a life-drawing group. I'm studying from 'Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist' by Stephen Rogers Peck.

    The illustrations are wildly good man. Keep up with the anatomy - you'll only get better.

    Thanks DanLucas!

    I have a few more sketches for today. One is a silly thing and then I get back to serious business.

    Today I have a lot of back-torso studies, and a couple of funny sketches.

    Hannah McGill's Sketchbook
    Angel Eyes from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. You can see my bad drawing habit where I draw the face and then kind of give up as I move down the torso.

    Design doodle, idea discarded but I still enjoy the little sketch.

    That dude should be so scary, but he's so at peace with himself. Nice butt drawings, Angel Eyes came out pretty good, and that arm comic is one of my favorite things ever.
