    Indeed. Believe me, there is nothing like looking at one's own sketch from a week ago and seeing all the bloopers, to strangle any awe I might have in the cradle.

    Nor mine; I just draw animal characters sometimes. Thanks for the compliment; I'll look at your SB later and leave some comments if I see anything I could help with.

    Hi arenhaus, I just want to come back and thank you for your advice, you save me a lot of trouble on trying to figure out what I did wrong.

    And your stuff is still wonderfal as always and I really love all the detail you put into the drawing of the goblin under the tree.

    Glad you like it. I have a web site too, if you want more finished stuff.

    Happy to be of service. And thanks. The detail in "Old Potter" was mostly improvisation; the concept included the potter, the tree and the little faun, and all the whimsical weirdness had been added to the 1:1 scale cleanup sketch, without a prior plan.

    African archer 2

    Another practice sketch. I like this one more; better anatomy and expressiveness.

    Sprite and ranger

    They are, perhaps, arguing over the right of passage through the sprite's forest.

    Actualy I'm quite fascinated by the implied leaves. they are quite astonishing. I love such simple things. It fascinates my how view lines can make the eye (or brain) see something rather complex.

    Other than that I really like your shades. From what I see you could try different body-shapes. At the moment they all look quite similar.

    Yeah, I know how that can work. Some classical Chinese painting styles depend 100% on such implication. And take decades to master... If only I could imply a complete human figure the same way!

    Heh, that's a silly accident due to posting things done at different times out of sequence. By pure chance three similarly thin figures ended up together. (Even though the proportions of the archers and the sprite are different.)

    Let's find a sketch with a different figure type for the next post, then...

    Trouble downhill

    Not sure who is making trouble downhill from this pair, but they surely are going to be in trouble shortly.

    Black pencil, cartridge paper. A more finished drawing this time. I tend to use Prismacolor black pencil for things like this, but this time I ran out of replacements and had to use a Staedtler, and it worked better than Prismacolor, being harder than the latter and thus more controllable and capable of finer value gradation and thinner line. I used the softer, creamier, more textured Prismacolor only for a few darkest spots. I might switch my pencil preference due to this.

    The concept itself is just a random idea. I can see where it owes to Spanish fashion of 18th century, Errant Story comic and Tim Johnsson, but there are other influences here too.

    Interesting! I don't think I've ever seen you draw a horse before, at least not of the two-legged variety. Makes me wonder what you'd make of something like an elk man/woman, they are similarly majestic.

    Yes, not a very frequent idea for me... but here it is. It was a whim, really; I wanted to do a very heavy-set, bulky yet not overly muscular figure, so this picture suggested itself.

    Funny you'd mention elk women... I have a pretty recent sketch that could be interpreted as such, though not in the same way as this horse woman. Elk in general has a very masculine connotation for me, though; think Cernunnos.

    Shamaness

    A grinning old shaman woman wearing an elk skin with antlers.

    This is another one of quick doodles done on a flash whim.

    You're right, I wasn't expecting that result at all! I suppose when I think elk woman, the bulk and scale remain, but with an antler-less head. Like the otter people you did earlier, it'd be best complimented as a contrast to the male counterpart. It came to mind because you've always seemed keen on woodland cultures.

    Keep up the sketch posts!

    Aww the kids are so cute <:3 These are really good proportional references, and I like their expressions too
    The more animal-like child looks so shy and cute, she (at least I think its a girl) kinda reminds me of myself at that age

    Perhaps. If I dig into my archive I think I might find something more like a deer, but the closest thing I'd done recently was some sketches of female fauns. Most weren't good enough to post.

    Keep up the sketch posts!
    Will do!

    Well, if you find it useful, go ahead. As I've said, I was following someone else's proportions.

    No, I remember I was thinking about a forest background.

    Contemplating sushi

    Practice sketch, an exercise in body types. I included a rough and a clean version.

    I have no idea why they are contemplating a fishbowl, however. It just happened.

    Explorers

    Two Procyonian explorers, from different Houses (clans/associations, for lack of a better word.) The one on the picture left is a recognizable Lrinkenzi, the one on the picture right is harder to pinpoint without color - probably one of the northerners associated with the sprawling Shorre house.

    I never drew binoculars fit for these critters before. Turns out their large inter-pupil distance makes the binoculars rather bulky.

    Graphite sketch on printer paper. I tried to make the scanned image backgroung light gray, instead of my usual white, and make the "black" a very dark gray, to see if this reproduces the graphite effect better, with a less garish look. I might switch to this method of presentation for graphite from now on.

    Critter doodles

    A bunch of critter doodles, in a variety of styles, with a stray robot and a mask reminiscent of "Oblivion Island" thrown in for good measure.

    These are shown about the same size in this image as they are on paper, 2 inches or thereabouts.

    Graphite sketch on printer paper. Combined from several pages. All from summer 2011.

    Cyborg doodles

    Cyborg (and cyborg parts) doodles from 2011. The one on the bottom right, above the cable, is a bottled brain.

    (Yes, you guessed right, I had been digging through my scanned material folder, processing and cleaning up old scans.)

    All these are on a single A4 page. Graphite sketch.

    Really nice sketch here. I could tell right away that these two were from different territories, their physical differences subtle but recognizable. I can't tell if the scanning method is different than your other scans without close inspection, but I can say that pure black for representing graphite doesn't look natural, so you're probably on the right track with your levels.

    Flamethrower

    Practicing mechanical stuff. A somewhat futuristic soldier in medium-heavy armor with electronic visor, wielding a flamethrower on "steadicam" mount. Plus a small reconnaissance drone.
