This is going to be my sketchbook I feel like a total noob for not doing this sooner as I want to get better at drawing...painting...both...maybe everything. So I'm starting out small with spheres, cubes, and so on, and building up. I will post something everyday. Please evaluate my progress along the way so that we will learn together, thank you.
First post is two spheres for study, I wanted that painterly feel to my image and I want that for all of my images.

I have neglacted this thing for almost a year and now I'm back at concept art. This isn't going to be a regular sketchbook. I will be posting progress shots of what i do digitally so that me and others looking at this will learn something.This is the under painting for a still life im doing, i will post more when i get to a stopping point.
good start mate! the only way to get better is to study!!!
keep it up!
my subconscious does not stop begging my conscious to draw.
hmm does that mean im a slave to my subconscious?
at least it doesnt beg for crack. ha.
Thanks, almost done getting the values sorted out and then I will increase the resolution to start refining those rough edges.
A new painting showing some of what I do to get to a good point in it.
I drawing in pencil and charcoal, I have been trying to learn the classical methods of drawing on my own. I start with a basic block in of the big shapes using angles, then I block in shadow masses that i see.
Next is to add color, sometimes people get fooled into thinking that there maybe only a few little colors but I try to look carefully.
I will refine this soon so I can finish.
A small update on my cups, I don't want to be a slave to these circles.
I'll try get smaller paper but all my good stuff is on about 11*14 paper so its hard to scan, well another update.
Almost finished I guess...
Another work in progress to practice some thinking skills. I'll post some pencil sketches as soon as I get the driver installed for my printer.
Update on my soldier, I just figured out that I need to just let go of things in my picture which means looser drawings or paintings. Need to work on poses for characters as well.
A portrait i'm working on...
Another practice painting heads
Finished study on to something else now.
Yet another head study...
This is the head study from before the edges were too hard so I fixed them up I might color this it looks nice.
I don't know where I got this idea from I was drawing away and now i'm trying to illustrate an evil doctor. Maybe i'll add a syringe somewhere. Man i'm strange.
Something quick before going to sleep, trying to keep things loose but also making sure it reads as a human. I will finish it up later, maybe...
I saw in another sketchbook a study of one of Marko Djurdjevic's covers. So I tried doing one too. This was very fun to do I might finish it. All credit goes to Marko.
I've been taking some stills of movies I like and painting them I have a lot stills so it should be a lot of practice. The first is an unsuccessful attempt at the Red Skull from the First Avenger movie. Next up is Captain America himself. I'm going to focus on speed this time.
Something im working on...
Thanks, great stuff from you Octic
I never finish anything and I'm suppose to be putting together a portfolio for college in about January. Well, heres a picture of my favorite antihero, Deadpool.
A sketch that my friend wanted me to do for her
More still life sketches
Oh wow those last studies are really stellar, keep up the great work!
