    Joseph McFarlane's Sketchbook

    Salutations to all of you who happen to look at this sketchbook. My name is Joseph and this is my first time on Conceptart.org. I've been browsing the community and feel very inspired by a lot of the great work that has been posted. I attend the Art Institute or Orange County and am majoring in Media Arts and Animation, though I much prefer drawing and just recently got into digital painting. I am looking forward to the journey of becoming a better artist and studying each day.

    Critiques are welcomed as they are -usually- helpful.

    (3) Face study of the same character -since the concept was lacking any real facial detail.-

    (4) Mood composition concept, little tighter but still more of a concept.

    Quick'n'Pretty

    Quick rendering while animating which will lead to more procrastination on actual homework. Despite the Ronald McDonald hair going on the expressing is what I wanted out of it. Careless and wet out in the rain. That or maybe she's waiting for the band to get their arse together and play. More posts coming soon.

    Back in time

    While paging through old folders I came across a drawing I did in the 6th grade of a girl who always seemed to have a frown on her face. The sketch was simple and crude at the time, I used it as a guide to try and plan what she may look like now. The eye kills it with flatness but then again it's just another sketch I put together.

    I don't remember her name but let's call her Cuddy, no pun intended I swear.

    Mord Sith

    Design from Terry Goodkinds book series The Sword of Truth series. A lot of these heads are going to need some bodies which they are attached too!

    Hungry

    The time is a little after one in the morning and I'm very hungry. Seeing as I have no food at hand I decided to paint my hunger pains. Here resides the angst of my desire to eat!

    Really liking your creature concepts. They look like something out of Hellraiser!

    Thanks Trisscar!

    You've got some impressive work yourself! I really like the red that you put into the face of your character, red and black have a great contrast to them. These creature concepts are sort of "cartoony" in the proportions. I've got some clever ideas though I can't wait to get down.

    Keep on striving!

    Burned Memory

    I used to know someone fairly close to me. Life decided to remove that person from my life. When I think of them there used to be an elaborate visual painting but with time it has become tattered and burned until there won't be a single image left. Here's what I could pull.

    WIP-Wha?!

    Sort of a WIP showing how I work. Usually in black and white since I'm not that skilled with color yet. After I take a new layer in Photoshop CS5 and place a soft light or multiply to gain a base color and then the fun begins. I'll be posting the final product of this painting once it's done.

    Keep on striving!

    Fair winter wonder- Self portrait

    Bouncing from attempted realism to something much more expressive is one of the most liberating feelings on the planet. This is also a self portrait, I'm the alluring chap in the scarf.
