Stabby's sketchbook thingy Updated 12/15/2014
My name is Mark and I'm looking to get into illustration, book covers, interiors, and the like. Ideally I'd be self publishing my own graphic novels. I don't upload my work here that often since the attachment system is a pain in the butt, though I guess I should do it more often anyway. If you wanna, you can follow me on deviantart and my fb page which get updated more often. Feel free to leave any critical feedback!

gamersgene: Unfortunately it's been a while since I've done a fully rendered figure, putting off on my studies, although I've just been inspired to get back to figure drawing, although it probably won't be popping out studies from my anatomical books.
ArghosRo: Checked the sketchbook, good stuff man. Although if that horn on your mask gave you trouble and you want precision, mess around with the pen tool, it does perfect curves, ellipses, circle, and other things.
LAL: I wouldn't say rich imagination. Although I've just been inspired to work towards rendering from my imagination and scratch 'cause I've been tired of limiting myself to reference and building around a single image. Going to start perspective studies as that seems to be the foundation of rendering from the imagination.
Anyway, thanks guys!

Quick self portrait, stayed up for five hours making this from midnight to morning . Got inspired by people actually going through with that self portrait a day challenge.
I've also been going through The Complete Guide to Perspective by John Raynes, I'm taking some of the exercises and replicating pictures in different viewpoints.

Great job with the perspective on the kitchen. Did you use a reference?

jskotte: Thanks man, I will.
Exon-Ion: Haha, it's not often that I have those bursts of energy, most of the time I'm not doing much.
dandylion: Yep, in the book I used, it supplied plan (top-down) and elevation (profile) views.

Your selfportrait is quite good.
I also like the concepts ( cool designs! ).

Just another Journey...

Been motivated by all the imagination sketches everyone's been doing and being tired of just copying. I've been doing some studies from Burne Hogarth and Gary Faigin's Guide to Facial Expression, too lazy to upload them though since most of it was in pencil and my scanner blows. Guess I'll just show the results of them in some of my imagination drawings/paintings and my sculpture.

Copied an illustration from Star Wars Cross Sections and then did some turnarounds from the imagination. Everything else from that was from my head.
