    semi-daily sketchbook

    [NOTE: Decided to edit this post to make a more colorful thumbnail for the thread. The original images attached to this post can be found on my website.]



    Original post text:

    I used to have a profile on here but I let it fall into disuse. So, I decided to get a fresh start with a new profile and a new sketchbook to go with my new blog (www.roamingground.com) and new project: the goal of drawing and posting one 15-30 minute sketch everyday.

    I've been at it for 5 days now on my blog, so I will post the first five sketches here:

    So, lacking inspiration, today's doodle began as a series of random lines drawn on the Sketchbook Pro canvas. I then tried to find some meaningful image in the mess and what emerged was...a sexy pixie.

    Let's not speculate on what this means about my subconscious...

    Daily doodle #7! One week down (though only the third day posting them to ConceptArt.org) and approximately 2,236 weeks to go!

    This is my second doodle to start off with automatic drawing (or automatism, if you want to be fancy). Today we have a man being threatened by a 50 foot jelly. You gotta watch those jellies...

    Decided to make a full size painting out of my first Daily Doodle.

    Painting landscapes has always been a weak skill for me, but this summer I took a class with a professor who was a professional concept artist (http://drawingtom.com/) and watching him do some photoshop painting inspired me to try more.

    While cleaning my living room today I came across some figure studies I did a few weeks ago and decided to post them.

    I'm coming to realize that, with figure studies, how well the drawing works as a drawing often has little relation to how closely it resembles the model. I'm hoping to experiment more in the future with intentionally modifying or manipulating the models' poses to create more interesting compositions.

    We'll see...

    Daily doodle #9. Still starting with random squiggles and looking for shapes in the mess. Seems to be working so far.

    Daily Doodle #10! The big One Oh! Or Oh One Oh, as my numbering system would have it.

    Little bit more complicated scene today. Who is that mysterious cloaked figure? And why does that woman have such an oddly shaped head?

    A little bit different today. This sketch is a rough concept design for a background for an animated short that I have been working on, off and on, for awhile.

    Today's doodle is another quick concept sketch for an animation background (a portal to the nether world). Obviously, these are not in the proper proportions for a movie, but for now I'm simply experimenting with how to render stone walls and such rather than worrying about the actual layout of actual shots.

    Hiya Peregrin, thanks for your comment in my sb.

    Your sketches are wicked! I like your sexy fairy, your style is really loose but nice and stylized with little details here and there. I like your random line then sketch technique!

    Lovely life drawings too I think you're right about manipulating the pose, it's like any reference i guess, just use it to know where things go but then you can still use artistic license to make it look more fluid..better composition etc...artistic license..the best two words ever!

    @Angel Intheuk - Thanks for the comments. I'm hoping to go to a figure drawing session this afternoon, so hopefully I will get a chance to experiment with composition some more.

    Today's doodle is another quick concept sketch related to the short I'm working on. This is a portrait of the aged protagonist. The helmet is really just a place-holder until I've managed to work up a convincing medieval helmet from reference images.
