    markey2011's twisted sketchbook!

    These are some of my drawings,these are mainly pencil and ballpoint drawings, i spend more or less 3 hrs a day, sketching,whenever i feel the urge, these are taken with a camera fone, sorry for the poor qualities, this site has been helpful to me in terms of getting ideas and looking at other artist's works. i am hoping that i'll be as good as them someday........feel free to leave your criticisms...and thanks for visiting!..

    Very nice shading and details. I know you've stated they were taken with a camera phone but I'd love to see higher rez scans.

    Hey hi Markey,

    the use of a ballpoint pen seems to allow you a lot of different line qualities/thicknesses. You are very aware of the "wheight" of your lines, and how the shading/hatching density balances the whole image. Nice work on contrast, especially in the cave one and the forest one.

    I love that turtle/ray hybrid, very cool !
    I like the last drawing very much as well, although I don't quite understand what's depicted; some kind of... giant mechanical bird ? That's what I see at least ! Reminds me of the great birdy villain in the animated movie "nine".

    These are really, really nice work, and I'd like to see more... keep drawing !

    Very interesting...your work reminds me of Miyazaki's sketches. Have you tried water color wash over drawings? I love when you put your creatures in environment. I'd like to see more of those...

    hey great stuff!
    really fantastic sketches especially
    you have a sorta john howe thing going on with your lines which i love,
    really subtle and confident.
    you might actually want to invest in a tablet though,
    your digital lines lack the fluidity and dynamics of your pencils which may just be an experience thing, but tablets allow for pressure sensitive lines allowing you to get varying line widths like a pencil or brush, something your trusty mouse cant do..an alternative would be to scan your lines in and color over them (what i usually do, just because i prefer drawing on paper)
    small tablets can go for around 150-250 if you get them from a discount online wholesaler (in canada at least) and i've had my tiny 4x6 for 10 years and its served me fine (though i think i'm about due for an upgrade)
    Keep posting though, I'd love to see more!

    Great drawings

    But seriously, get a Wacom Bamboo or something!! Drawing with a mouse makes my brain hurt!

    Snorks!

    I have to say, if you can do that much with a mouse, a tablet will totally be worth your money. The level of detail you're doing here is incredible. I can't wait for more!
