    ssandulak's sketch pad - diving into digital awesome (Update March 5th)

    Okay, starting up a sketch pad, tired of procrastinating so I'm going to be pumping out the studies and randomness. I'm looking for any crits on all my stuff. I have incredibly thick skin and I know I have a ton to learn so let me have it.

    *edit* Changing the thumbnail on my sb (would be cool if there was an option besides just uploading that image first)

    Another page of 60 sec gestures and a quick painting of a nectorine (color is something I'm really gonna have to work on). Maybe I should try working in grayscale and then laying down color...I dunno I'll try new stuff as I go.

    LAL - Ty good sir, I shall

    A few hand studies. Also a paint of an mma fighter's torso. I had real trouble for a while on it and just started over. I think I was working too close when I was blocking in the light/dark. Should I be working in 32bit color? I mean I figure I should but I have to convert it to 16 for a jpeg. Also I'm finding it fairly difficult to get a steady line on my tablet. Not that it's skipping or anything, I just get these very sketchy lines. I take it that is more me not being used to the tablet than anything? Anyone think these images are too big? I'm halving them when I save them for here but it still seems a bit big to me. Who knows, back to photoshop. And as always I appreciate any crits/tips if you notice I'm doing something wrong.

    *edit* Ah, my reference for the mma fighter. http://www.iska-europe.com/wp-conten...hel_Walker.jpg

    Couple days without an update, won't happen again (technically I was still sketching, just don't have a scanner and could only find time at work). Just some basic proportion sketches to really grill it into my mind (From Andrew Loomis' Figure Drawing for all it's Worth). Moving on to the basic anatomy now.

    Did a few thumbnails for the COW this week. I'm probably going to go with 2,3 or 5, with maybe the bench/bus stop sign from 6. It's some sort of wrinkly ant eater/bison thing with a monkey companion to point the way because it's practically blind. I like the idea of it hanging from its belly like in 2, if I don't choose that one I might incorporate that as well (and have him point the way). Not sure though as the silhouette might not work like that...

    More progress on COW 181...not sure I'm happy with the head placement of the main beasty. Might crane it so it's looking sideways like in thumbnail 3.

    Did some more roughing in. I'm liking the main creature more and I was thinking of having the companion pulling on the main creatures hair to kind of guide him. Now I'm thinking of having him pull his ear while screaming and pointing. I hope it reads like that anyways. Think I'm kind of going in too many directions with the main one as well. I'm probably going to take out the hair and see how it looks.

    Gave him an almost alligator-like snout with feelers on each side. He can also light his tongue bulb to help show him which way to go (...into the light). Also I was inspired by this crazy old giant turtle who had these wrinkles under his neck which probably just looks like hair right now (though hopefully will stand out nicely when its rendered properly). Crits welcome of course.

    Some more studies. This is really helping me get the major points of the male form down (I'll have to work on the female form some more also). Though I suppose that is the point Gonna do some gestures then some random poses out of my head with the basic guidelines like in the 3rd figure.

    Another page of gestures (brownie points if you can guess the movie it's from) with me trying to use the Loomis mannequin to help with proportions. Starting on my CHOW 202 entry as well (I'll post that later, along with some COW 181 progress) even though it's a bit late in the week I'm hoping to get both of those done by their deadlines.
