    Christian Hammer Sketchbook

    It is time to add some of the pages from my sketchbook.

    I have been paid to create art and concept art, but I would definately not call myself a professional. I am very much still finding my way and love feedback.

    I have a few rules I give myself and one of them is to not have any idea what I am going to sit down and draw during my evening sketch sessions. This is just a series of pages from some of these. You can see more of them at my Creature Design and Digital Painting website.

    Ink chicka

    Just to show that I don't ALWAYS do weird creatures and do sometimes venture into the comic world. This is a character I sketched out for a friends comic book series.

    Alas poor Yorick, she knew you well...

    Great resource

    Just stumbled across this image gallery: scanning electron images

    It is a series of scanning electron images of bugs and creepy crawlies...

    More sketch pages

    I am uploading them from a stash of them I have here... So there will be more of them today. The first page in this group is just a couple heads, I did that A LOT... The bottom image is from my first time using Alias Sketchbook, and I found that I LOVE it!

    wow man your pencils are so sweet, i reckon you push the dark's a little more though, give it some more contrast

    A couple more pages

    These two are from the same sketch sessions where I try to have no preconceived notions as to the image I will create... It is a lot of fun and keeps the ideas new and that in and of itself is pretty wonderful.

    The recycled brown paper doesn't hold up very well to, well much of anything, so going darker often cannot happen, but I could up the contrast after scanning them in.

    I am still very much learning my own process, and have learned a lot from comments on other forums, critiques and generally comments in general, so I LOVE any and all feedback.

    Uncle Remus

    Don't ask me why I call him Uncle Remus, I honestly have no idea... I was just playing with a mouth of tentacles and it turned into a handlebar mustache... Then he got a pipe... So there you go.
