    Lach's Black dog

    Thought I'd start a sketchbook- well its only been 4 years or something since I signed up here


    .
    Time for the great leap forward,

    I often wonder what might have happened if I had gone to art school.
    Never mind...
    in nature beautiful and strange things evolve in isolation...
    got the strange
    just need the beautiful.

    Thanks badass

    yes they're a bit big-
    I sort of save out versions on my hdd and forget how big they are....
    until i see them posted-

    cheers

    added a smaller image of an attack robot and 2 self propelled guns.
    The idea with the self propelled gun is that-in computer games they(player character) always have these gigantic weapons
    how to carry and wield them feasibly?
    Answer give the gun its own propulsion to support it- the operator "drives" the gun.
    So at right theres a operators pod attached to the gun, and bottom is an infantry one

    Pretty cool! Love the storytelling in your images! Really nice work!
    Only thing I can critique is that your poses are a bit stiff looking at times. But that's nothing some gesture drawing can't fix.
    Looking forward to more updates!
    When in doubt, run and shout.

    Night

    my post chow event idea for night

    Thanks windmaker

    Hmmm I guess in this selection there's a few stiff poses

    - stiff poses isn't usually a problem,

    usually if I'm just thinking about the design they tend to be in a kinda modeling pose-
    like this night one,

    but if I do any drawing I'll keep your comment in mind

    Such an awesome sketchbook you've got here. I really like the monster designs and how you pose them. That is something that I'm really struggling with. This page is my favorite so far. Will have to keep my eye on you in the future.

    Morning sketch

    thanks placeboast and mikko,
    looks like you guys are progressing quickly.

    I ought to do more studies,

    but then I think I also ought to have fun and work on the creative side-

    as it says in the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:-

    one moment in annihilation's waste
    one moment, the well of life to taste,
    the stars are setting and the caravan
    starts for the dawn of nothing- oh make haste,



    actually I'll try and illustrate that verse

    in the meantime- a quick morning sketch before doing work

    Cheers

    Cheers OmertA,

    crikey you've got tonne of posts there,



    I think the things to remember are.

    1 Things are fresh at the source (ie nature, working ideas out from first principles, deriving ideas from whats around you- your truth as it were)

    2 Brilliant people might render better but there is no monopoly on ideas

    3 and as Mr Manley says- you don't need anyone's permission

    (or need their approval for that matter- if you draw because you must).

    4 Understand there is an entire industry revolving around and in maintaining artist's insecurity.
    So control the fear- instead channel the joy.
