    The Art of Woo - Wooblood's Sketchbook

    I feel like a short intro is in order, so I'll say that I've been drawing as a hobby both traditionally and digitally off and on since I was a wee lad. I never pursued it as a career, so that part of my life fell to the wayside, but now (after inspirational help from these here forums), I'm feeling motivated to really get my drawing groove back. And here we go...

    Following will be ball point pen sketches I've been doing, mostly during down times at work. I sort of like using ball point as a training tool because it disciplines the lines you put down and doesn't let you cover up mistakes. Mix of referenced and non-referenced stuff...

    Some studies of Natalie Portman (a perfectly healthy obsession), and more random sketches...

    This is me trying to get into the swing of digital painting (with my brand new Intuos4!). I've always appreciated the natural beauty of clouds, so I'm sort of doing some studies of them.
    Done in Photoshop. I do have Painter 11 also, but I'll probably wait until I get comfy enough with PS before wading into Painter.

    The clouds are looking really good for "getting into the swing of things". How much painting background do you have?

    Your drawing is great to look at. You have some really well rendered forms and you appear to be using your referenced work to springboard some more "from your head" stuff- which I think is the best way to do it.

    great start for a SB. I see lots of potential here and I hope you will stay to it. i can see you are no beginner with art, your lines are very nice and I really like the expessions in the faces, the dogs are excellent too.

    great u are using a ballpoint pen, I sometime draw with a dark charcoal pen or a marker just for the same reason, you cant delete a line.

    keep it up m8

    Thanks all!

    Edarneor - A coworker has a bulldog and asked me if I would draw him a picture of one, so I just found a couple pics online and drew him two for the price of free!

    Quigleyer - Thanks. I never really got into painting (that's why I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to composition/color/painting technique), I've only dabbled in watercolor, tempura, acrylic and that was mostly in elementary school. haha. I have played around with digital painting for a while using a bottom of the line graphire (aka slip 'n slide), so switching to the new Intuos is really a world of difference.

    PaintMyBrain - Thanks, like I said, I've been drawing since I was about four years old, so the familiarity is there but I just never took it to the next level of creating really impressive and satisfying works of art, which is what I'm hopefully preparing to do now!

    Wow Woo. Those clouds could be mistaken for photographs! Beautiful technique.

    Pretty slow with painting in PS, so this took me a couple hours. I think the ref photo I used was posted by Lhune as a good example of light/shadow color theory, so I took it and used it as study for myself. (Thanks Lhune!)
    I'll post the ref too in case anyone wants to use it.

    Looks great!

    The only concern I have is it's lacking some sharpness.

    This was done as a requested drawing. I think it's finished.
