    umbinc's sketchbook

    Since everyone seems to have one and I haven't got any place to show my sketches anyways, so here it goes. Feedback is welcomed as the main reason for this sketchbook for me - is learning. From what you might have to say, to advice, etc.
    Here's some stuff from my DA scrapbook:

    the oldest one since high school, the card-playing goblin

    sketches for the game(all except two on the lower left) we've just finished making. the concept of the game was completely rewritten, so those are not included and it's ok to post it.

    Same here, except for Fallout's Harold in the lower middle and cat creature from Perfect World mmo on the lower right, which could be considered the fanart.

    Hey, welcome to the CA.org! It's always nice to have here fellow russian artist. You've got some skills and moves already (as stylized character look decent). My advice will be simple - study anatomy. Even if you're planning to do more cartoon-ish art, knowing human anatomy is essential for any artist. So do studies, as much as possible, and just don't stop.

    Hi Umbinc. Welcome to CA and thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. You have nice cartoonish style with characters. The one with you and your cat is excellent. Only thing though. The cat looks too simple compared to rest of the picture. Last guy is great with his bony fingers. Keep posting!

    Hey there. You have a good start to a sketchbook here! I like your fly-man design and the tall skinny man with the cat on his shoulder. It's also good that you're playing around with grotesque faces.

    It looks like you're heading in the right direction. Be careful about putting the lines between teeth in on women, it emphasizes the teeth -- all right if you want to give them character, but too much contrast if you want to make them look attractive. Otherwise it's mostly a matter of what proportions and shapes work the best, and you'll find that through a lot of experimentation.

    Good luck!

    Wonderful sketch book start!
    Thank you for showing some of your earlier works too.

    It'll be fun looking back on those when you'll reach 50 pages or so
    Those sketches for the game look good! Were they done in pen?

    N thank you for visiting my sb.
    Cheers

    I like the cartoon of you and your cat. Hope you're not offended by the use of the term 'cartoon'. I consider myself a cartoonist as well as illustrator. So it's meant to be positive. The weird 'fly' creature is pretty creepy looking.

    Hey there, you've made a great start on your sketchbook. Niice
    I can see you've got plenty of imagination, so that's no problem

    At the moment I can give you two advices.
    1. Draw, draw, draw! Sitting still wont help you improve
    2. Buy an anatomy book as soon as possible, they really help a lot, next to drawing from life. I can advice buying a book from either Loomis or Bridgeman. (or both ) IF you dont know what I mean, be sure to ask

    Keep the good stuff rolling!

    My advice is to get Andrew Loomis Figuredrawing. Google it and you'll find a pdf, I use that one all the time. Also draw from photos for studying anatomy, that's a great way to do it too.

    Other than that, keep pushing out stuff. And try your best to switch between imagination work and studies.

    Thanks for stepping by my sketchbook too by the way.

    Have a great day !

    The only concept art-ish thing I've done so far - some kind of ghost maybe) Or maybe just me in my most melancholic mood.

    personally not a big fan of the 100% soft-edged brushes look in the last one but that's my own opinion. is "amanda" in oil pastel?

    Very nice stuff, man! I think you could have a bit more saturation in your shadows in your digital stuff perhaps. Anyway keep up the good work!

    Great stuff you have in here! You have a lot of imagination, it's really nice the stuff you come up with. I would recommend drawing three dimensional forms and working on perspective (not that I know anything). Adding a little more form to your drawings will really push you to the next level. Keep on going! Good work!

    Interesting satir ). Just keep doing anatomy studies, both lines and values - with time you'll greatly improve.

    Post some of your studies.
    Do figuredrawing and anatomy, then go to your imaginative work. And if you're totally into it, then do the studies, then redo some from your head to see what you remember and then go to the imaginative stuff.

    Keep posting, keep working hard.
