Sketching Skallywag! (Big Update: May 14th 2012)SKETCHING SKALLYWAG!
MAY 14th, 2012
AHOY MATEYS!!! It's been about a year since I last posted here. It's been nuts. I did an internship at a video game company, and since then I've been totally rocked by school. However, that hasn't stopped me from being creative. There's a big update on the next page over showing how I've improved. Hope you enjoy!
One day, I realized that being an artist takes a lot more than innate talent, it takes work. And a heckuva lot of it. So in the spirit of work I figured it's about frikkin' time I made a sketchbook on here and held myself to a regular schedule, forcing myself to improve each day. It's time to set aside the video games and start doing what I really love.
I hope you enjoy visiting my sketchbook.

Hooray for Google Image Search! I found reference. I always like drawing skulls. Not because I have a morbid fascination with death, but because each one is unique, and is the basis for the facial features of each person. Try this: Take a photograph portrait of yourself. Then, using tracing paper or photoshop, trace the skull over your face using the landmarks of your own face to determine the proportions. Guess what? That skull will look like YOU! I really enjoyed that exercise, I could actually recognize my own skull.
Anyhow, just trying to get used to using a tablet again. I can't believe I haven't drawn in so long....

Cool drawings. It's good to hear that you're taking initiative to improve your art -- it's definitely something I'm trying to work on these days. After all, artistic growth comes with perseverance and dedication. Feel free to check out my sketchbook -- it's mostly figure studies and some cartoon scribbles thus far but I'd love to get some feedback

This picture has taught me several things. That I know nothing about back-lighting, nothing about complimentary shading, skin textures, nor neck anatomy. That painting without reference sucks. And that I frikkin' love pirates.

Hey, thanks for checking out my sketchbook
Your skull studies are great, you seem to really understand the form,
Damn, i wish I had the bawls to enter the weekly competitions!
Some good thumbs happening - I like how the rightmost one pops out immediately, while the left and top-middle have potential for some really cool narrative context.
Keep on studying, understanding, moving forward.

nice SB, I'll just recommend for improving your painting to start thinking more in shapes and get rid of the lines, you just need to get loose, the same happens to me, I stick to my line drawing and it is bad for painting. Excellent job with Kristen Bell

Getting tired of looking at nuns....
Random doodles to loosen my mind up, and remind myself how much I suck at color
