ME! Well, this sketchbook is for my sketches at least.
To kick it off, we have a 15 min sketch which will be developed into a full digital painting of a groovy space lady. So today, sketching is for...
seems like a very fluid picture, i hope something as intricate as space mashes well with something as fluid as music and a curvacious babe
goodluck- and welcome to c.a
Thank you! Glad to be here as well, in the hopes of getting better.
Sketching is for...
Well, not really, but here's a 20 min sketch of a bored teenager. I think he want noodles.
I really like your colors, but for that second drawing could have used a more fitting background color. (What you had is too bright)

Oh, I didn't notice. Thanks for the tip! I'll keep that in mind for the next one.
Sketching is for...
STARS. Lots of twinkling, wrist-hurting stars. At least the basic background is done now. Just putting out all those stars and trying different formations, colours, shades and such took roughly 2 hours, so that's all I had time for tonight.
Yes, I did every little dot with the basic pen tool in SAI. I'll just go and pretend it was worth not using a custom star brush...
School! At least for something to do in school, when you have some free time. So here's two sketches (well, the first's more like an actual drawing now) I did today. The first were inspired by a song, "Where the Rubber Meets The Road" by Meat Loaf. I've been wanting to try out doing monochromatic art and so I gave it a shot.
The second one, the gnome warrior inspired by me being told to do something fantasy-related, were made on my graphics teachers new toy, a Cintiq he brought with him. I think it's a Cintiq at least. It's one of those fancy tablets where the computer screen shows up on the tablet's drawing space.
It was fun.

Winter! Wheehee! So here's to a (belated) merry Winter Solstice. Hope you had a good one
you have interesting work here
I felt nostalgic and put on some Guns & Roses. Then this happened. Took about 1 - 1½ hours do do, in SAI.
So here's the first nude art! Well, my space girl don't have any clothes, but nothing is really visible on her... yet.
But here you have a random air guitar jammin' woman with nothing but a bath towel on. She probably stepped out of the shower hours ago but haven't put on anything yet. It's what I usually do
(I recommend listening to "Welcome to the Jungle" while eye-ing this, 'cus that's what I had on repeat for about 25 min )
Roleplaying! As in, this is a drawing of one of my RP characters, Sparv (= Sparrow) which is a seamstress that can shapeshift into a Great Egret, hence the wings. Mid-transformation perhaps, with a symbolic crown to represent her lost nobility.
Sounds corny perhaps, but it has to do with her lineage and the story of the game. She was born a noble, but lost her memories, family and home when her uncle set fire to her family's mansion. She was saved by her appointed knight, Sir Baltazar, and taken to a monastery where she grew up together with other children (who became her best friends). She found out just recently about her past in a letter Baltazar left behind, after he died while protecting the monastery from bandits.
Nowadays she's just trying to leave all that behind her by adventuring 'round the continent with her childhood friends. But still, she bears a grudge against all nobles and their treacherous lives, while secretly plotting her uncle's demise.
Whew! Typed more than expected... Anyhow, here's some art. Mostly did this to practice with my markers. Didn't go all too well but whatever. I can only get better now.

Today I will start sketching out my upcoming comic, "SWITCH". I have spent far too long on the script and character design, but now I believe I am nearing what I want my main characters to look like. The biggest bother has been their hair and BDSM suits. Oh by the way, it's a porn comic with some BDSM in it. Just so you know.
Kim Nordin (to the left) was an unemployed artist who, in need of money, opened up a "business", a.k.a a BDSM dungeon and took on the role of Domina (which she has experience of being), to pay the bills.
Sophia de Leon is a wealthy CEO of a world-wide corporation (think something along the lines of McDonalds) and frustrated, stressed and with a lot of weight on her shoulders. She is one of Kim's, or "Lady Chain" as she is called when being the dominatrix, customers.
This is something like the 6'th-7'th attempt at designing them... But it feels ALMOST right. Suggestions? P.s: the comic will be in either B/W or grayscale.
I've been culled into the time-trap that is Homestuck (webcomic), and have for the first time in my life felt inclined to do more than one piece of fanart. Although just because it's fanart, I don't believe it has any less artistic value, despite what many might say. I still seek progress in my art like a game geek searches the bargain bin for treasures.
Anyhow, art! First is Rose Lalonde, then we have Jane Crocker and Roxy Lalonde in a number of different situations. All from two different timelines in Homestuck.
More fanart! Yeah, it's fun and challenging at the same time drawing someone else's characters. Sooo... That's what I'm mostly doing right now. I'm a bit burned out in the "original art" department at the moment, so this is what keeps me drawing right now. I'll get back to it soon enough, but for now Homestuck is the deal
Artwork featuring Eridan Ampora, one of the (sea) trolls.
Scenes out of great books!
“He whooped and cried with relief and pleasure, and sheer physical delight. He swooped, he wheeled, he skidded and whirled through the air.”
One of my favourite parts (chapter 20, page 127) from “The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy: Life, The Universe And Everything”. Featuring Arthur Dent flying and experiencing flight by his own non-conscious will. Worthy of a background consistent of more than just one colour
Or, well, simple ones. I guess. Did this one 'cus of one of those "draw-what-you-are-wearing-right-now" things. So, hi! Those are my favourite pants and my standard collar.
... more fanart. Ehehehe.
Well, this was mostly to try out a new brush. Who knows, one day I might actually be less of a chicken and paint digitally without outlines. One day.
Karkat Vantas, from Homestuck.
Love the energy and your colors match the moods perfectly!
really like the digital pastel technique!
That is, the swedish gaming convention known as KattCon. And I guess this doesn't really qualify as sketching... But still. I'm still not in the clear where the line between sketch and finished is when it comes to my art. This year's theme is Vampires and Werewolves, and yes we in the convention staff will be ready to deal with rabid Twilight fans.
We have glitter ;D
A lot of fanart. Hint: There's more to come. Homestuck is one addictive fandom to be sucked into.
Here's Gamzee Makara, the stoner troll, drawn in a circular brush that I made by editing the default PS brush.
Homestuck. Yup. Gamzee Makara and Karkat Vantas.
The new stuff looks really awesome! Your colors are sometimes pretty simple, but it's still tons of life and character in there! Maybe you could get some awesome results if you experimented a bit with shading and a bigger color palette? Just a thought!
Anyway, keep it coming! Really awesome stauf! (School was pretty Addis-less today tho =< )
