    Amerasu's Sketchbook 2012

    I'm posting here hoping for some feedback and critique.

    I currently work as a graphic designer and sometime illustrator and have for many years but I'd prefer to have more work in illustration and less in design. I don't think I can stand creating corporate brochures for another year. I'm not sure the direction I want to go yet and am hoping to develop some portfolio art over the next year.

    Right now I'm working on some cartoony game art for a racing game and a comic/graphic novel (not commercial, it's a personal project). As soon as I have some of the art ready, I'll post it here too.

    Here are some life drawings from the last couple of sessions I attended (I haven't been to a life drawing session in a couple of years). Sorry for the bad pics but I usually sketch on 18 x 24 paper and it doesn't fit in my tiny scanner. I take bad photos.

    The other pic is a Bouguereau master study from a while back, done in Photoshop.

    And here is recent art, mostly from the past few weeks.

    The mini pics are all ATCs (artist trading cards). I trade a lot and these are a few I've made over the past couple of years. Mostly makers, sometimes watercolor or acrylics.

    That master study is really awesome, and the black and white portrait in post 4 is gorgeous! Will be really interesting to see the work to come from your change of direction and looking forward to see the game art.

    Oh my God I want one of those green apples sooooooooooooo bad haha. You did a terrific (and delicious) job on that study. I'd also love to see more like it! Are you currently doing any anatomy studies (Loomis, Bridgman etc.)? Would like to see those too if you are!

    Great use of colors, your line work is fluid and has such great style to it. Definitely subscribed to this one, man!

    Egg0 - Thank you!

    Yochanan - No, I'm not doing any anatomy studies right now. I think the last time I was at a life drawing session was a couple of years ago. Too long. But I do I have some Loomis PDFs I could pull up and work on over the weekend. It would be a good idea.

    MrFrenik - Thanks!

    Here's a fat, fluffy cat. I saw a photo of an insane cat tonight (my daughter searches for cute cats daily [I'm not kidding]) and had to draw one. And here is my entry for the current POW.

    Some armor based on an armor and weapons workshop with Don Seegmiller. And a style sheet, an old one.

    I did some Loomis studies (thanks yochanan) and here's some Southern Belle concept art I'm working on for my illustration portfolio. Trying desperately to move away from corporate graphic design by the end of this year.

    That cat sure doesn't look cute, but you did a good job regardless! Haha I was just about to ask if you had done any Loomis studies, and then the page updated. Great job, I think they will really pay off in the long run and anatomy is so essential. I really should be doing them myself... Ahem.

    Yep, they really are helpful. I'd gotten out of the figure drawing habit which is a bad thing. I did about 75 2 minutes figure drawings this week. Quickies in the morning as I have a coffee.

    I love a good quickie in the morning. Continually good work, and as a fellow cartoonist, I appreciate your style more and more.

    My Orc Shaman for the D&D art test. Hopefully I'll have time to finish him up and decide which pair of horns work best.

    Very nice job on that orc! I think I like the middle one the best. The right one looks too much like a deer (not very orc-like) and the left one like a viking... Which would actually be pretty awesome too. You should definitely render it, yeah!
