    Tokoldi Draws!

    Hi everyone. I'm finally starting up a sketchbook here. I'll be posting anything and everything I draw. Yes, even the drawings I'm embarrassed about xD I'm not going to post anything old. I'm only posting things that I draw from now on, with the exception of these first three images. They were all drawn within the last few days.

    1. Some random character. Don't really know what I was going for
    2. A dragon and an earth/rock elemental thing. Both drawn during the 5-10min model breaks in my drawing classes.
    3. My start on this week's CHOW challenge.

    Right, I better shoot off to class xD Till next time...

    (P.S. If you want to see my slightly older stuff, go to my deviantArt page at http://tokoldi.deviantart.com/)

    I saw your stuff on DA. Love your studies and you got the Blizzard style pretty much nailed. Very good stuff. Also, I'd suggest you put the links to your deviantart and sketchbook in your sig so they get more attention.

    You've got some great movement in these poses. Especially in the feet area of the warden. I'm also diggin' the hard lines in the dragon and elemental skeleton armor thing.

    Very inspiring stylistically. Keep posting~

    Haha, thank you
    I didn't used to put so much detail in. Then one day I just started telling myself to put in more details when I thought I was done. Gathered references and went from there. References are great tools, though admittedly I don't always make use of them.

    Here are some new sketches, drawn since last night. Making separate posts because I like having the text next to the images, and with the attachment manager I don't know if it's possible to format it so I can make one post xD

    1. Flour sacks! Thumbnails for a stretch and compression exercise for my clothed figure drawing class. We are supposed to draw it completely out of our heads, not allowed to use references. I guess the instructor wants to test how much we know

    2. I'm taking a stab at the IDW challenge this week. My device is explained in greater detail here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=227960

    3. This will probably be the final update for today. Also taking a stab at the COW this week, I think I'm going to try to enter it every week. This is still in the early stages. I drew it during the 5 minute model breaks in my Heads and Hands class today.

    Some info about this design (quoting from the COW 228 thread because I'm not retyping it xD):

    I decided not to think too much about this initially and just allowed myself to draw. As I put lines down it began to develop on its own towards something that is more elvish, I think.

    I have yet to come up with a name for this creature, but it is of draconic blood and has powerful legs capable of great leaps. It has smaller wings relative to its body size and is incapable of flight. However, it has the ability to glide over distances it would not ordinarily be able to clear with a simple jump. It is fast, agile, and has great stamina. It also spits acidic fluid and must be muzzled while being tamed.

    Wow, really great stuff here. Love the line quality. You seem to really be developing your own style. I can see that you and i have a similar way of sketching then refining our pencils. I love the movement you are getting. Maybe work in the blockiness of the limbs. try and slim down the width of the feet on your human characters.

    Thanks.
    I draw human limbs "blocky", as you say, because it is easier to understand the complex shapes of human anatomy when you break it down into angles. I keep my sketches that way as well so I don't forget about the structure.

    I'm interested to see some of your work, since you say we seem to be working in a similar way. Do you have a web page or something I could view? I don't see any links on your profile page.

    I also don't understand the reason for drawing female biceps longer? Scientifically, yes males and females are slightly different, but the muscles attach at the same places for both males and females, so why would a female's bicep be longer?

    This Warden is not intended to be flimsy or fragile, but powerful, so a harder looking muscular structure is in order I think.

    I would have preferred you send me such content in a private message. I do not want my sketchbook to have to gain a NSFW rating. Out of common courtesy you should have asked me first, since this thread is to promote my work, and this will harm the image I am trying to build for myself. Yes, I asked to see your work, but you should have used discretion. Kindly edit your post and remove the link please.
