    Book of the Rat

    Hello everyone, it's been a long time since I've posted here, lots of surgeries and such. However with all that time away it only gave me more time to spend sketching, so with the huge time gap between my last sketchbook and today I figure that i'd start a new one and continue on; ya know, get a fresh start.

    Anyway to kick off, the following are sketches of heroes I made for Champions(which luckily i was able to remake in champs online too hehe)

    Had some free time today to finally get in a study, in the final two weeks of my college semester so the papers and research are really getting to me.

    Anyway colour is not my strong point so I figured I'd take a whack at it with a study while I had the time. any critics are welcome.

    Been a couple of days, but I've kept myself busy

    Did some practice with charcoal, digital colour study, and ink. Then one of the ink gesture practices i did with the crow women inspired me to do another ink drawing and a digital piece, using a crow-man and Aya my crazy lemur.
    Also going to the Norman rockwell museum tomorrow which should be fun! Maybe put some pictures up of that later

    Finally done with the major "end of the semester" work. Thought I'd do another colour study after my class today.

    Thinking of giving photoshop or painter a whirl later, friend told me they're better than GIMP.

    You've really got good poses. They have nice flow and really clear weight. Don't really have any major suggestions. Just work on keeping down the sketchiness I guess. Bigger breasts would definitely not hurt anyone.

    Thanks, I guess bigger breasts wouldn't hurt, perhaps next time

    Continued on a previous colour study, tried a new way of digital painting, a bookmark for a friend, and a face study. Tried to be more refined and reduce the sketchiness in the last image.

    I'm really digging your stuff. Feels like a cohesive world you are creating with all of these. Can't wait to se more.

    Thanks! I know when I go out in the world I'll be doing other people's characters, so I've just been practicing making my own little world to make characters and stories with.

    It's been awhile since my last post, one more final exam to study for and I'll really be able to grind the graphite on some paper(or whatever I get my hands on really)
    Heres a little d sketch I did earlier

    Very expressive work you've got here. I love the rat page!
    I suppose no matter what I'm drawing, there will always be some sort of question in my mind about it. A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.

    Thanks, I'm thinking of expanding on it. I like rats(go figure) and people seem to show a lot of interest in it.
    Two colour studies using Anya
