    Monsters and monster people

    Greetings, my name is Heather Williams and this is my sketchbook.
    I'm currently a Senior in college majoring in Comic Art I'm aiming to learn how to craft comics and tell stories. I'm working on improving my observation skills, and paying attention to form and 3d space. And everything art really.

    I draw lots of fantasy related things, sometimes spilling into horror and sci-fi. So expect to see lots of mythology, creatures, and what not.

    whew

    Worked some of my favorite images from early this year all the way up to current stuff and some nude studies from the life drawing co-op.
    Those studies aren't perfect, but man are they helping.

    First few images of dark and monsters are from my Halfmoon story. I think I've learned more trying to draw things for that story than anything else. You'll probably see things for this a lot.

    Couple pages of a comic I'm slowly slooowly working on. Kinda my testing ground there.

    Then sketches of various unrelatedness.

    And then naked people.

    learn me a book

    Good evening.

    First off some in-class doodles from the land of "no really, I'm paying attention."

    Been working word balloons into artwork lately. Integrating text with my art has been something I've wanted to do since doing a workshop with Kate Brooke (local artist that does these lovely nature prints), but never got the hang of. Really having fun with that.

    And in the bowls of photobucket I found some knot-work from 2009 that I did. I thought to myself, I could vector that. Then that's exactly what I did. Original raster image compared with the vector result.

    Last five are an exercise from the book 'Drawing Words & Writing Pictures' a textbook on making comics. Just starting on the first chapter, but I think this book is great so far.
    But I digress, the exercise was to sketch five images, not in sequence, of the following.
    1. a person running
    2. a car speeding
    3. a ball falling
    4. a person staggering
    5. a newspaper page blowing in the wind

    Definitely learn quite a bit once I compared examples off their website.
    I notice I use Emanata (things like motion lines, sweat beads, ect.) pretty sparingly, if at all. I think learning to use them a bit more can give a lot of motion to otherwise static images.
    I drew a complete blank on the ball falling. I mean, how many ways can a ball fall? Well, their examples showed me several ways.
    After image and motion lines blurring the contours of an object really made that ball look like it was flying. Something that didn't occur in my sketches at ALL, but I'm keeping it in mind for next time.

    Definitely learned some interesting things with only that one exercise. I'm excited to be continuing on with this book.
    Definitely getting a mind for things reading it that didn't quite stick as well with reading Will Eisner's or Scott McCloud's books (although they are still very wonderful and I do treasure them.)

    Sorry that might have been a long talk. Just wanted to keep down my thoughts and learning experience.

    ok, attachment mannager dropped my images for a second time. You all get to enjoy photobucket now.

    Finals are coming in for the kill.

    Some doodles to start off with.
    Mia is an oldie of a character, but I was doodling whatever came to mind. Along with her is a random red head, and a yellow head to match.
    Then rismonster and concentrating on how he moves. (noticed I tend to draw him in static poses)

    More exploratory sketches of some more of my head friends. People with wings are fun to draw. Also highly ridiculous... but fun to draw.
    also making female armor without using the ol' anatomical obvious breast plate is a bit difficult. Gonna have to explore that some more.

    Then a still life I made for an assignment.

    I forgot to thank Mike Butkus and Lolbqq for the second time for their kind comments. I blame mac, firefox, and their incompadability to use CA's uploader.

    Drawings from the co-op that didn't get posted last time. Groupings of 5min, 10min, and 20min drawings.
    Excited for my figure drawing class next semester. I'll be able to spend more time on things. (usually run out of time just as I get to the hands, feet, and face.)

    Just a mix of things as per usual. Really just relief doodles between everything that needs done for class.

    Hope everyone has been having a good holiday. I almost always run into this season with the mistaken idea that I'll get something done. Things get so busy that I never do.

    In any case, started diligently sketching things for one of my stories, then degraded into a purely self indulgent redux of an old beloved character of mine.
