I have looked at this sketchbook quite a lot, and I have come to the conclusion that you must have a lot of nightmares because theres a heck of a lot of monsters in here. Ha ha ha your mind is a scary place man!!
@The Flying Dutchman - Thanks again! I'll try to keep it up.
@ Vulgar' - Thanks a lot! I really should've spent more time on it, but it was kinda neat to bang that out in part of a day. We'll see how it does in the poll, I don't think there were very many entries this round.
@JeffX99 - Thanks Jeff. Yeah, they sure are! Especially those ears, he describes them like they're straight out of Shrek. I tried to find as many other people's renditions as I could online, but a lot of people just make them look like weird orcs.
@Lightship69 - Hey thanks for stopping by my sketchbook Lightship! Haha! No, I don't have nightmares. It's a bit weird, I've never liked horror stuff at all but it seems like my stuff tends to go in that direction, and yeah, I like drawing creatures—I can do whatever I want with them. Haha, I've found myself quoting your signature sometimes, "easy now, go easy!" Thanks. Mate.
Here's my latest progress on the next ChoW, I've really got to get cracking on it. (there's some reference photos pasted in there for now.)
Cool last pic. I'm not too sure what ChoW it is this time, but I'm getting the impression the woman's mechanical. If so, that crease down her cheek (looks like a crease at the moment anyway) could be a tiny bit darker, as it'd be a great symbolizer of her face-plates to really get the idea across. Also digging the cables hooked up to her abdomen.
Very nice stuff. Your posts have inspired me to learn anatomy more thoroughly, including the names for things. (Before I didn't see the point of learning the names, but now I see how that could be useful: to actually be able to refer to specific parts that might be wrong, and to help remember what's there by muscle groupings and so on.)
Anyway, on with the crit: there's something about the girl's head in relation to the body that doesn't read well for me. Maybe it's just because the body isn't complete yet, but it looks a bit small or something. Skinny/bony (especially when compared to the neck and head, which don't look frail). I'm guessing as you render it more, it'll get fleshed out, but I figured I'd mention.
Whoa! Where did all these comments come from? Thanks everybody!
@Velocity Kendall - Ah, yeah, I agree. Thanks! Sorry for being so dumb.
@surus - Thanks! Yeeeaaahh . . . . I totally failed on that ChoW.
@Mhugo - Thank you very much. Yeah, I need to study anatomy more.
@Gloombunny - Hey, no problem. Thanks.
@BlightedArt - Thanks. Yeah, good point. That's what I was going for. If I had actually finished that one I would have done something about that.
@Lulie - Thanks a lot. Excellent. Hah, every time I think I know something about anatomy I start drawing and realize that I have no idea what something's supposed to look like. You are spot on about the head. I realized it was too small when I really started drawing it out, for some reason it looked weird to me if it was bigger. Thanks.
@obier - Uh oh, I guess that means I have to post stuff eh? Thanks.
@n1frit - Thanks!
OK, here's a few little things. The latest ChoW (definitely unfinished as usual) and all the sketches for that, and some construction drawings; it's pretty depressing how bad I am at those.
caught my eye in the CHoW#252! loved your piece! moebius-ish and(?lol) unique and awesome concept! awesome sketchbook! SUBSCRIBED
and btw. are you by any chance attending Art Center? (your geometry studies just happened to coincide with another ca member who did similar studies just now aswell...)
