    THEMike's sketchbook

    Hello everyone, I'm Mike and I'm slowly working towards becoming good enough an artist to possibly get a job. I'll post some of the stuff I've done over the years (much of it consisting of my Dungeons and Dragons Characters) and I'll keep it updated as I work. All comments and critiques are welcome.

    NEW STUFF ON THE LAST POST

    Here's a few of my sketches from highschool

    Some more recent stuff from 4 to 2 years ago. That was the period when I was first intriduced to photoshop and I started coloring some of my drawings. I must say that I still feel somewhat awkward about painting and coloring, mostly because I've worked much more on improving my drawing skills and I have very little experience with colors.

    The first of a series of movie studies I'm gonna be making. THis was intended to be a one, one-and-a-half hour study but ended up taking me something over 2 hours.

    Today's movie painting took a lot longer than I expected. Doing one of these every day is gonna be tougher than I thought.

    Hi Mike,
    I don't want to throw you off your groove here, so feel free to ignore this. I feel like it would be more worth your time to copy paintings instead of movie stills. Film is such a completely different medium. They have thousands of images to get something across, while a painter has to convey everything in one image. But if you're going to do it, try to think about how it works as an image more and not just copy. Watch your values especially. In your last one everything's basically black except the face and the blurred lights and it's just not very interesting.

    Just my thoughts . . .

    Mr. Corlan, thanks a lot for the interest. My choice of movie stills was more or less random and to an extent because they were readily available and were easier to find for me than good quality photographs which I originally intended to do. You make a good point though, so I'll try something different.

    As for the immediate future, it's exams period so I won't be doing much, if anything for a while, but I'm thinking of trying to explore some traditional mediums as well in the summer. We'll see.

    After a few months without touching a pencil or tablet, I'm back to sketching, at least. Here's my (rather hasty) interpretation of a couple characters invented by two friends.
