Scribblings from the Overworld
Hello everyone. I've been lurking around here for a long time, just drinking in the marvelous sights, but I think it's finally time for a sketchbook of my own.
So, a little bit about me: I've always loved drawing and I've been interested in game design since elementary school. So, I went through a media arts program at the local university (graduating about two years ago), and started making my own flash games. So far I've made nine of them, with a fair number of both hits and misses. But overall it's gone well enough to keep going at it, and I'm now ready to expand to the iPhone with my next game.
And in more art-related happenings, I've decided to seriously pursue my traditional art skills once again. I haven't been drawing nearly enough and I feel like I haven't developed at all for years and years. I've just started out on another stab at university, this time in a fine arts program. Between that and this sketchbook, I'm hoping to iron out the many shortcomings in my skillset.
Without further ado, here's some concept work for my next game:
A few fantasy race concepts:
This one is not a sketch so I won't post too many of these, but it might give some idea of what all these concepts are for:
Last but not least, a short but deadly viking...

Fun stuff so far
It's sweet that you make games. I tried to teach myself actionscript- what a pain in the head that gave me!
I think you have an interesting array of characters but you limit yourself a little proportionally. They're all generally the same body type and your faces are very similar proportioned as well.
It could be your too concerned with it looking good in your initial design process.
All your stuff is super clean- even your sketches.
I think doing some quick and dirty drawings where you play around with proportions might lead you to some interesting discoveries
Happy sketching !

Some live model drawings from yesterday's life drawing club session. In total, this was about two hours with the model, and maybe another hour of polishing afterward.
I haven't been to these sessions in months, so I'm pretty happy how they turned out.
