    I've decided to take a few concepts from this thread and bring them to life. I've been doodling for years but only just gotten serious. I know I should be studying anatomy, doing still life, etc, but I'm using these concepts as a way to discover specific areas that I need work on.

    These are the first two concepts: Drunk Alien and Living Tattoo

    Drunk Alien:
    Things I need to improve on (please add to this list!):
    *Clarity: It isnt at all clear that he's drunk (I will add a dropped bottle of booze)
    *Lighting: I feel like I botched this.
    *Drapery: I'm having a hard time fleshing out his cloak. Need to do studies
    *Metallic and Glass surfaces: The car in the bg (I know, its hard to tell what it is)

    Living Tattoo:
    Only a sketch at this point.I know it's not yet apparent how I'm addressing the theme, but I've got an idea...

    Heres something different... two quick studies referenced from movie screenshots. I really enjoyed doing these, so more are on the way.

    The second one is a recent DSG submission that I never posted.

    Hey, WRappiii...thanks for checking out my sketchbook. Things are looking good in here. I really like your values on your black and white images.

    With the drunken alien, there's a couple of tangents in the image...like the martini sign coming out of his head and the way the cockpit window disappears behind him. The rendering of the face looks really good, but the rendering on the clothes fall a little short.

    Also, for the DSG submission, not sure how I feel about the black background. I know it's space, but it's just not working that well here. Makes the foreground and middle ground seem almost like cut-outs.

    Keep it up and good luck!

    @bish0p2004: thanks a ton for the helpful crits I totally agree about the aliens clothes, but for me it's progress! And I totally forgot about the bg on the DSG worm... maybe I'll try to fill out that sky some time...

    heres two little cartoons in a style i've never attempted. really fun to do!

    Oo, that lizard man sends shivers up my spine. Great textures. I don't really know how I feel about the position of the martini glass on the background. It disappears into his head, it's a bit distracting to me. Can't wait to see it colored.

    I like the armor on the worm of the other upload. Awesome ideas going on here. Keep up the work!

    Thanks for checking out my sketchbook.

    Nice studies of the movie screenshots, I really like the first one. Looking forward to see more off them.

    @ErinLein: Thanks! i totally agree about the martini sign, gotta find another solution...
    @Topcross: Thanks for your interest I'll be stopping by your sb again soon

    An update on the monk. I'm completely re-doing him. I'm not sure if i'm even going to stick to the "Living Tattoo" theme but I don't know...
    So I like the addition of the robes as it seems to frame his head better (and it's another opportunity to practice clothing). However there is something terribly wrong with that head... Advice on specifically that would be awesome.

    PS the face is basically a space holder for now, I havent put more that a minute or two of work on the features... but crits on his head shape/size would be great!

    @will123will: thanks, friend
    tiny update here: I hit a brick wall while trying to paint the monk's face so I decided to practice by painting a planar head from a (2D) reference.
    It was pretty hard and I wouldn't call it done at this point but I'm satisfied.
    May do one or two more studies of human faces before continuing on that monk.

    Critique away

    the few who have commented here seem to like the drunk alien so here he is in color.
    I blurred the background in order to showcase the character and because it is unfinished.
    Did I do good?

    Edit: Just so you all know, this pic has a bit of a jpeg artifact though it is only barely visible...
