Thread: Many sketchlings
November 4th, 2011 #1
Hello everyone, I've lurked about here for some time and have finally decided to get posting. Here is a selection of drawings and sketches done in Illustrator.
I'm really wanting to improve so comments and crits are very welcome.
Newer stuff is at the back, but you knew that right?

Here are a couple from tonight, playing with ideas. Going to re-draw the chicken freak, do the pose/anatomy properly and hopefully do a detailed render in Illustrator.

I ain't dead >honest<
Hello again folks! I know it's been a while since I last posted here but I promise that I haven't been slacking off. I want to get posting on here more and get more feedback as I've been pretty much limiting myself recently.
Anway my art has changed a fair bit during my absence so I'm going to post some of my more recent sketches and WIPs here. I've decided to venture back into digital painting and it's really helped improve my art as well as trying to draw every day.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look and I'll be aiming to post every Sunday or so (it's one of the few days I have spare) and ustilise this site more as I want to get better. Way better.

Hey, thanks for your helpful comment in my sketchbook, I really appreciate it.
I love your digital stuff! It's got a lot of solidity to it, and yet it's very fluid. You make great use of contrasting colours, too.Skerchbok: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=222058

NickyBeats - Thanks a bunch, especially the site you showed me. The BF finds it interesting too but for totally different reasons I'm glad you like my traditional stuff, pencil will always remain my favourite medium.
Luthertaylor - Thanks for the encouragement! Hopefully we'll both be on our way to the top.
Clur - Happy to help. It's not often I'm able to dish out the advice so it's nice to give someone a helping hand. I'm finally getting to grips with digital painting, happy you approve.
Hopefully I'm gonna get some moe sketches uploaded tonight. There should be some more figure studies from the Michael Hampton book and soom toony doodles.

Thank you Kevin and I will.
Here's some more drawings from the last week or so. This week I discovered that my new super duper cheap sketch pad is super duper cheap because it's super duper crap. The paper has this spongey texture that kind of just disintegrates as soon as my pencil goes near it. Ah well lesson learned. Also posting stuff on here helps me spot my errors, which is good.
I want to get into doing more scenes and enviros ad was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get started. I'm really not sure where to begin. I really need to get drawing from life too and I hoping to scrape some cash together to go to life drawing classes sadly I'm a bit skint at the moment.

My sketchbook does that too, it sucks.
But your pencil drawings are looking really good though! Especially those figure studies, you've got a great handle on the basic shapes and volumes. I think the next step would be to do some bigger, more detailed ones.
As for scenes, I don't as many as I ought so my advice probably isn't the best but I'll give it a shot. I usually start with a vague idea of the feelings I want to convey: in one piece I'm currently working I wanted a prairie scene with a hopeful sort of longing. From there I try to figure what sort of composition and elements would work best for that. In this case it was a long vertical format with more sky than ground visible, big clouds, a solitary figure, high value colours, and soft organic shapes.
Basically I think if you get your concept sorted out right from the start, everything will flow from there.
Or you could maybe try a madlibs sort of approach, write down a bunch of different locations and emotions - 1930s interior, distant asteriod, ruined Egyptian temple, happy, lonely, frightening - and just match them up at random and draw whatever you end up with.
I hope that made some sense!Skerchbok: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=222058
