    Aleio's Sketchbook

    I decided to delete my old sketchbook, and start anew. After looking through my physical sketchbooks, I realized I needed to show a bit more of the rough work, and even some of the otherwise meaningless scribbles.

    EDIT: I'm adding on the work from 2007 to my following post, since I needed to edit the thumbnail for this thread. ~Angela

    nice work. I especially like the fox and the fairy pencil drawing.

    I suppose no matter what I'm drawing, there will always be some sort of question in my mind about it. A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.

    Works from 2008, both CG and graphite. If you notice there's not too much work during this year, it's because I went through the sudden loss of my father, and other family crises during that time. Naturally, my abilities weren't working very well.
    The sketch of a woman with two swords undoubtedly has perspective errors, but it expressed some of my feelings toward certain people at the time.

    PS: I did manage to have a tiny bit of fun with some fan art of FF7 . ~Angela

    Works from 2009. Someone in my other sketchbook has pointed out that the horse critter has a problem with one of the back legs appearing to wrap around the other. Never got to fix it, but it's kept me from making the same mistake, so thanks to that person who brought it to my attention.

    Also, one of the images, the one with the cat-girl and a city behind her, is a bit blurry from my camera. I had to take a pic of it since it was too large for my scanner.

    EDIT: I added on the work from 2007 about halfway through this post here.

    2010 So far...

    The first two are an alien concept design, and the second pair are working with facial expression on elf-like characters. I need more work on head construction as some of these are lopsided and such. Work in progress...

    I might as well throw in my flash art, since I've done much of it through the years and occasionally been paid for a design. Some of these are from 2006 on up I believe.
    Should have more stuff soon. Thanks for looking. ~Angela

    One new graphite sketch. A worm's view looking up at mushrooms. Weird perspective.

    Here's a quick animation I made using photoshop and imageready. The long-haired girl was made as a stylized self portrait just for the fun of it. And mainly for a cool avvie.

    You seem to have a brilliant attention to detail in most of your pictures, very neat too and I've liked pretty much every animal/insect based thing I've seen there.
    Your people seem to be lagging behind though, But I do see you're doing allot of experimentation with your styles- which is good.
    just keep up the anatomy studies in terms of your people and keep up the good work.

    Got some great sketches in here.. I especially like the hummingbirds

    Just a thought: a super resource for faces is Mark Simon's Facial Expressions. Might help with elven studies

    Keep going -- show us more work!

    Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803

    Thanks guys! I will be keeping up with my people, in fact I'm glad you reminded me. I'll be practicing more. I do have Mark Simon's Facial Expressions book. Great resource.
    Here's a couple more practice sketches; Human mouth, loose body sketches, my parrot, and a friend's horse.

    Here's some faces for practice. I used my own face as one reference, and others from books I have.

    More practice with heads/faces. Some are okay, others aren't, but I'm getting used to it again. Some of these weren't drawn from reference, which does create more of a problem for me. I'll be referring to photos of people in the future.
    Also some hands and feet.

    With these last few pages I've actually filled up my physical sketchpad, so it's on to the new one a bought a week or two ago. ~Angela

    Here's some of my early color pencil work. A few are from back in 2005, and some are more recent. This is my favorite medium and my best suited subject matter. ~Angela

    I can definitely see that colored pencils are your favorite. I love how tight they are. What kind of paper do you use for those?

    Thanks krysjez, I typically use bristol board for my color pencil work. I recently found out that boards made from 100% cotton are one of the best materials for this type of work. A brand called Stonehenge is one of those that's been brought to my attention by an old teacher of mine.

    Latest sketch: Prawns from the District 9 movie. I loved those aliens. They've got plenty detail, and had real character. Quite funny at times, too.

    The one on the left is supposed to be a younger prawn, and the other is an adult. I plan to try a couple more sketches of these guys, so look out. ~Angela

    Here's some quick sketches I did in my sketchpad. Some alien landscapes that I plan to paint in photoshop. I'll post the finished versions here when they're done. ~Angela

    Latest creature designs for a book I'm attempting to write. Their supposed to be some of the fauna from the planet the story takes place on. I'm thinking the first designs may be too Earth-like, so they may change down the road.The last one is a sentient species that is sea dwelling but also amphibious. ~Angela

    Another alien species concept for my book project. This is the main character. I hate that this could be compared to the aliens of Avatar, but I'm content with this design at the moment.

    These aliens do not have hair, but "head tendrils" which are mobile, and a longer pair of tendrils at the front act as sensory organs.
    The pits between the eyes are called "psionic pores", and they are uses to send and receive magnified brainwaves between themselves and occasionally other species who possess the same organs.
    The aliens' tail has a small paddle-like "gripper" at its end, used while climbing, and a leftover trait from their distant ancestors who were tree dwelling animals. They are now modernized, and live in houses, and have a steampunk-ish technology.

    I am redesigning the previously posted alien fauna as well, so that'll be up next.
