    My Digital Sketchbook

    Hello Everyone,
    I joined Concept Art some time ago (maybe around 2002 or so), but due to life and such, have not been back till now. I am trying to become more comfortable with the digital workflow, and I hope that I can learn some new things here. I also need to motivate myself to do more life drawing.
    Here are some of my sketches and finished works. I will try to update often. Thanks for looking.

    Javier

    I've seen you post some very good advice in the critique section lately - thanks for that! I was curious to see your work after the great little Gollum sketch. Well, glad to see you creating a sketchbook - this is excellent work, nice linework. Hope you'll continue to update!

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    How do you do this? How do you get there? How many boxes did you have to draw to be able to do this? How many years? What is it that makes you able to draw from any perspective, angle, any form, any shape- why? How?

    I absolutely a d o r e your work. As in: "That's where I wanna get". The clean lines, rendering, the depth, the forms- beautiful. And I would like to add that you are really helpful in the CC centre!

    @Benjaminba - Thank you

    @danlambert - Thank you. Unfortunately I couldn't finish in time for the competition.

    @wooden mango - Thank You

    @Lhune - Thank you

    @Justyna - Thank you

    @sone_one - Thank you. You have some good work in your sketchbook as well.

    @LordLouis - Thank your for the kind words. I learn a lot by offering advice as well. I will leave a reply in your sketchbook regarding the drawing stuff.

    This is a small update. First some digital pencils. I am still trying to get used to the digital medium. Next the development sketches for the guardian of Atlantis ChOW, and the initial block-in of the painting. I will post the finish soon. Last is an over-paint I did but never posted for this thread. The OP seemed to have lost interest by the time I finished the sketch so I never posted it. So here it is for what it's worth.

    go go go

    would appreciate if you could tell how the f* you get those digital sketches to look so much like traditional graphite (or have i got something wrong?).

    Hi Javier. Thank you for your advice for my stuff in the critique forum.

    Now look at your works! Wow. I'm echoing what LordLouis has said.
    How the f- did you get there?? (sorry for the "f-", I have difficulty in expressing myself ). To imagine the amount of studies to get where you are now is just mind boggling and ... and ... you do that hippo on scratch board! *sighs

    I know I will enjoy this thread so much. Thank you for sharing. Please, post often.

    EDIT: Oh I forgot I have a question. That little girl with jellyfish, what media did you use? Soft Pastel?
    I'm making mess here: Sketchbook .
    also on dA and tumblr
    Old sketchbook, in case anyone interested.

    @sevarenge - Thanks!

    @joe` - Thanks! I'll try to post more often

    @IdaS - Thank you.

    @Alex Eh - Thank you.

    @forestdino - Thanks!

    @Velocity Kendall - Thanks man, I really appreciate it. You've got some killer work in your SB as well.

    @humza - Thanks!

    @sone_one - Thanks! Yes, it is digital 'pencil'. In photoshop I set a small round brush (10px) to multiply mode, spacing to about 31%, set flow to 70% with pen pressure control enabled, opacity to 100%(no pen pressure control), and then I use a paper texture I scanned set to linear burn @ 95% depth.

    @S Ciaffaglione - Thank you.

    @Lightship69 - Thank you for the kind words.

    @williams73 - Thanks!

    @jgwong - Thank you.

    @Mr.Pryminista - Thank you for the compliments. I like to design characters, but it is not my specialty as such. I come from a much more traditional Illustration background.

    @demonaura666 - Thank you, but I am afraid it is more hard work than talent. Practice solid drawing based on the fundamentals and you can use any medium you wish, including Photoshop.

    @witcrack - Thank you. The little girl and jellyfish image was done in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, with custom brushes.

    And now, just some more digital doodles.
