    Odiolitos- giving it a try

    So, I finally got to doing my own sketchbook thread. I'm really looking forward to learn from your criticism, so go ahead and show no mercy! Thanks!
    My very first is a sketch from a photo of Satchel Paige, whom I heard about a couple days ago:

    And a whale astronaut. I think the Mignola influence does show a bit, huh?
    BTW, I'm using the attachments to upload the images... Is that the right way to go, or should I use links from somewhere else? Thanks!
    EDIT: Righty, I read the sticky, so now I know I was doing it the proper way... Never one to read instructions through, myself

    Uploading is better so there isn't missing links.

    I have been doing digital art for 15 years, and oil paints before that. It has been a while since I have seen a lot of mediums, but is that ink and watercolors?

    Thanks!

    In fact, it's an ink wash, which I later put a multiply layer on with photoshop. I prefer to first focus on value and then applying colour digitally... Never quite seem to get them right with my El Cheapo watercolours

    Hi Magic Man!

    I'm really flattered, thanks a lot. I recently switched from brush pen to nib pen, so basically I'm finding out how to work it in public What's your current weapon of choice?

    I have to say (again) I loved your process videos and how polished everything looks.. Reminded me I really should pick up on the rendering!

    Thanks a lot for your kind comment!

    So, I submitted this as a tee design to Threadless, and they turned it down Anyway, I'm quite fond of it, and will keep trying to score a 5 there. Now, THAT would make my day!

    Alright, no mercy I love the first two! That ink/digital combo worked out really well. The last one though is dull. With green and yellow I would expect more vibrant colours. The hair should pop out a lot more. The skull is clearly off: the perspective of eye sockets and lack of teeth. The hand of the lady is also a bit akward.

    Hey, Pixel Cheetah, thanks a lot for your lack of mercy Thing is, I wanted to use a subdued, sort of 70's palette, and guess I ended up make it a booring one. I'll revamp it when I have some time and repost it. Thanks again!

    Thanks, papervampire!

    And just because you requested it (and I just scanned them), here are some studies of random people in the street I did. 5 minutes tops, pentel brush pen (so the line may be a bit funny at times...)
