    Veneq's Sketchbook of Destiny

    Original post:
    Hey! I've been lurking around CA since 2008 - it's time to step up.

    Here's a bunch of sketches since the beginning of 2012 to get this started.
    Pretty random mix here.

    I'm pretty new to digital painting and painting in general. The majority of my freelance work has had a totally different style to it (for the music industry), and I've never painted or studied the correct way. So here are my 3 first "real" studies.

    Well welcome for your new SB!
    Looks like a good start that's for sure.

    I like the line weight used, especially the first one, all the little organic squiggles but they don't look that scribbly. Only crit I have is the eyes in the 3rd one down, and maybe the distance between the eyes and nose with the guy sticking his elbow out not sure, something feels a little off.



    But overall very nice. Post moar.


    Edit: Right when I hit post, you post moar. There we go, and the paints look good.

    JFierce - Thanks much! And thanks for the crit. Agreed 100%. That MMA guy kind of fell apart on the right side of the sketch.

    Here's how that lizardy guy turned out.. this was for Crimson Daggers: Bloodsports 4

    This is my first digital painting that I've ever actually finished and can call my own (not study, not heavily referenced, etc). The studies in the previous post were to reinforce this piece.

    And here are some other studies I just uploaded.

    Maolaosan - Thanks! I love when simple, soft sketching comes out just right (even though the anatomy on that one is pretty messed up!)

    Spent some time on Pixelovely.com doing gesture/figure drawings for warmups the past few days. Definitely going to be keeping this up - really gets me into a groove and thinking quickly.

    QUINN - Honestly I was surprised to see you post here because I didn't think you'd remember me! Thanks a million!

    Danny K - Definitely! That's something I need to make a habit every single day.

    Studying asian skin tone

    Did this base sketch a while ago and was planning on inking it comic-book style (sketch done in Manga Studio 4) - Probably won't continue this one unless I just turn it into a digital paint.
