Hey everyone! I've been checking out this site for a long time - have made the occasional post too. I'm gonna try and keep a sketchbook here. I find that your average deviantART user has more appreciation for the finished, polished stuff than pencil drawings. And NOBODY checks out my sketch blog! So I'll set up camp right here and see how it goes. I love crits and comments so feel free. Thanks for looking.
I'm gonna slowly port over drawings from my blog, so it's possible you may have seen some of 'em already. Here are some sketches for an illustration I did last year. The first shows a bunch of options for the AD to choose from. The second is a refined sketch of his choice. The final illo is on my website if you care to check it out.
Thanks for the quick and kind replies NickyBeats and Voodoo_Mama! The post is only 5 minutes old and already I see some responses! Now I know I've come to the right place.
Here are a bunch of pages from a little sketchbook of mine. I love sketching with marker. It's a good challenge to try and put down every line in the right spot on the first try. It's nearly impossible to do (for me at least). But its wicked practice.
Hell yeah! I've dug your work on dA for a good few years, but its even better to see your pencil work! Totally out'a sight man! I really admire your pencil rendering, but those pen sketches show extreme confidence! I especially love the bearded robocop~
No crits as of yet, i'm psyched to see you make a book here, i'll be coming back often to get the inspiration juices flowing. Keep it up!
I like how in each update, its pretty animated and it tells stories, even if they are a bunch of random sketches. (: It really makes the sketchbook alive so to speak. Your sketches can appear realistic without losing the strong emotion it with held. That's great (: looking forward for more updates
atombaby - Thanks! And don't you go deleting your DA account. It's a HUGE social network for artists. No reason to hate on it. I still have an account, I just changed my username and haven't updated the link in my sig.
AustenFM - Cheers! So glad you dig the pen stuff. I've got lots more to scan and post, so hang tight.
Bleo - Thanks alot man.
surus - Awesome! Thanks! It's an honor to be on the pencil thread!
There. I thought I'd show you the prerequisite life drawings early so I can get back to posting drawings of orks and zombies.
I'm not the best at life drawing, and my speed on these was pretty bad. Any half-decent animation student could pull these off and better in a fraction of the time. I need more practice - it's just hard to find naked people sometimes!
