    the Unstopable Nobody

    I finally decided to start a new sketchbook. I plan on making an ashcan out of it for the next Comic Con. So for better or worse let me know which ones stand out, so I know to include the piece or not. The theme is going to be gestures and quick sketches.

    This will be the cover.

    these are some recent landscape studies. I don't think I'm going to include these in the ashcan. I might use the yellow palm tree study. But the full colored ones I did purely for academic purposes. The important thing is I learned from those two. Even if they are typical and dull.

    I did this one a while ago. It was done with an old dried up bottle of ink and a filbert.

    Here are some quick sketches from last week. Sorry if I'm posting all willy nilly, but there's no way I can get the chronological order, but that's just not going to happen. I'm scanning everything in today.

    Nice variety so far. Looking forward to more. Would like to see a few with a bit more finish.

    Sure as soon as I figure out what "finished" means. Actually This SB is dedicated fast, efficient techniques, under the gun. So practically every thing you see is done in class between 5 minutes and an hour. I want to get into comics/storyboarding, so speed is really important

    Yeah, "finish(ed)" is a rather subjective term. Hope I didn't offend. Good luck with your pursuits.

    no offense taken. With many of my pics I see things I could improve, but in this case going back would be like cheating. The objective here is to get things correct right off the bat without fussing around or being a perfectionist.

    Here are some watercolor studies I did at the zoo last year.

    Post number 5 and the palmtress are very good. The lose style really accentuates the images and they benefit form it.
    The zoo studies on the other hand are a tad too messy for me.
    The face in the last post is nice, the left eye (her right) looks a tad dead and odd though. I think there is a highlight missing on the lower ridge.

    Anyways, I am subscribing, so that I do not miss any updates!

    Hey Janos! great to hear from you homey. I'm glad your following my thread. Thanks for the crits. The zoo stuff was pretty sloppy. I did that stuff with a group that wanted to sketch every animal in the park, so I was under some strict time constraints. Luckily it was hot and dry, so the watercolors dried up pretty quick. It was a nice opportunity to push an emphasis on color under the gun. I went for a Justin Sweet kind of look.

    The last portrait the teacher pointed out that the mistake I made was being too delicate for the tools I was using, so that's why it's so full of mistakes.

    Speaking of crits I have something I'm working on posted in the CC sub forum if you'd like to hook it up with your two cents. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=181013

    I love your style, man. What medium did you use for the first palmtree sketch? And those two guys sitting down, did you do those from life? Where do you hang out that you find such great subjects? Anyways, I'm really digging your stuff.
