    Myszt's Sketchbook

    Hi! I've been wanting to get more involved in this community for a while, instead of just lurking like always, and I think a Sketchbook is a good place to actively start with what time I have. I'm within a year ish of graduating college with a graphic design degree, and also working full time as an artist for a slot machine company, so I'm trying to get back into sketching more with my free time since I can't post anything from work.

    So I'll slowly work through what I already have, and get to updating current things and more abundant sketches.
    I don't mind if anyone wants to red-line my images as a critique. :]

    Yup! I'm involved in all of the game art with 2 other people Concepts and finals for the interface, symbols, bonuses, then all the post-production, all that jazz. I'm still quite new to it but it's fun!

    I do indeed like drawing animals, probably because they're the very first thing I started out drawing. I've definitely grown far more attached to drawing people over the past years, but the tiger illustrations happen to be my most recent finished pieces as an elemental series for a class :]

    Though I absolutely agree I need to break out those nudie magazines..And SOON!

    Thanks so much for commenting! :]

    Hello there.
    Great step starting a sketchbook.
    Tigers look great.
    If you like to draw and paint animals, I have
    a book suggestion for you;

    Ken Hultgren - 'The Art of Animal Drawing'

    LtPlissken - Thank you! Ahh I've definitely seen that book, though I can't remember if I have one myself or if I've seen it recently elsewhere... hehe. I have a pretty massive book collection growing at home, and at work everyone's brought in portions of their collections as well.

    teapo - It's from a reference, though I tried to leave myself free exaggerate a little and just enjoy the drawing, rather than constrain myself to trying to copy every little detail exactly. My boss recently pointed out that I have a habit of doing that, and I'm noticing it actually does make my drawings look stiffer. So I'm attempting to draw with more gesture and exaggeration/expression now

    I drew a ridiculous looking little hawk last night, and I intend to draw some hands soon as well... I get so antsy for only a couple hours of free time to draw in the evenings hahah

    Hello there,

    Thanks for visiting my sb mate, as well as for the encouragement. Ill try my best to finish up my concept for CHOW. no big hopes but its better to try than letting the opportunity pass by.

    About your work; I love the white tiger drawings. hey show that you have a very good imagination. The girl in the post #1 is super cute ! good job there.

    Well i got no much crits for now but i think you should do more anatomy studies (both human and animals) because they will help you to do some impressive drawings just from your imagination. so here goes some useful books im already referring.

    1. Anatomy for artists by Elliot Goldfinger
    2. Andrew Loomis books
    3. Pencil drawing techniques by David Lewis

    also check this book out. its regarding animal drawings and i found it sometime back when i was trying to help someone in CA. hope itll be useful for you too. (it took some time to load)

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/24324116/D...o-Draw-Animals

    Well keep up the good work mate. ill drop by try to be helpful as much as i can. Good luck!

    devastacio - Thank you for visiting! I love trying to study the anatomy of anything, so any more of it is welcome in my book for sure haha. I keep hearing more about Loomis lately, so I'm definitely getting more interested in finding me a book of his!

    I've been trying to get in more sketches at work and post-work... we have a little downtime lately so I've been able to draw a little bit on the side :] Not as much as I'd like though, as always.

    I still really want to finish up detailing the outfit on one of my girl sketches, using a gigantic fashion reference book I have for way back when. Just haven't had time to sit with my giant book yet

    I have this itch lately to go out and buy drawing pencils, after using this red one so often now. I feel like using my mechanical pencils is a negative thing, though I'm not sure why. But good god do they smear...

    I have found that mechanical pencils restrict the range of marks you make because of the way their leads are shaped. Not to say that they are 'bad', they can be very useful for detail work, but buying wooden pencils is a good choice.

    I have always liked the Staedtler 2B-6B range of blue drawing pencils, if you are planning on getting some. Someone gave me a set of Lyra 'Art Design' pencils. Weren't soft or dark enough for me - the Lyra 3B felt like a Staedtler B, for example.
