    Thanks Jaik! Those trains drove me crazy, drawing them all freehand, but I finally got a bit of a feel for it by the end.
    I was going for "evil derp" if that's a thing. My rationale is: an evil of a sufficiently large magnitude is not recognizable to us as some caricature supervillain, but is something entirely foreign and alien. I wanted to make it impossible to read his emotions properly using his eyes so that his evilness feels much colder and more natural for him.
    Oh yeah, this rough sketch still doesn't show it, but the "evil" part is hopefully represented by the anguished people in his stomach-mouth struggling in vain to escape. I'll get to it eventually
    And thank you too for dropping by

    Today I bring forth another filter study. This one felt harder to do for some reason, but it was a good lesson in showing as much as possible using as little as possible.
    Threshold filter on the right side, and my attempt on the left side.

    Update for the King of Hell. Starting to regret that composition. Normally I crop stuff as I progress, but this one ended up completely square and the entire king is in front view
    I was too focused on fixing up the head that I forgot to pay attention to the body before adding details. Well, lesson learned and all that. On the positive side, the head is bothering me far less now.

    I hate to post such a dinky update after so many days, but there's no helping it, and I still want to post something at least.
    My attempt at thumbnailing landscapes was mediocre at best. I tried simplifying them to only a few values and basic shapes at first, but every time I do they stop looking like anything I can recognize.

    I also had a thought of redesigning the original Samurai Pizza Cats. Made some rough sketches and turned them into silhouettes. Seems to work okay, so I'll try refining them a bit more and put them up as soon as I can.

    nice updates man. Though, is there a reason you used grey in that last filter when the ref was just black and white?
    With thumbnail sketches i find its easier if I use 2 values for each of the fore- mid- and background, just ot generally show form and maybe light direction, then you only use 6 values and it keeps them separate, but I do find it very had to do

    Thanks dude. The grey? Nah, no reason. That was just an accident. I didn't actually put any grey in, those spots are small holes that still have the grey background showing through. I just forgot to fill them in.

    Alright, finally I have an update with a bit more meat on it, so I think this is suitable to kick off the fifth page of the sketchbook
    This is page five, right? I hereby officially proclaim the fifth page of this sketchbook: open!

    I made the last second switch to an old face, but I don't think it's working too well after all. Probably change it back to young.

    The dreaded SpiderClown. I was working on it late at night, but didn't get any nightmares, so I guess it's still missing something.
    Need also to get reference for the spider head, and fix the lighting on the abdomen (I like the way it looks, so didn't want to touch it, but I realize it's inconsistent with the strong sidelighting in the rest of the picture).

    Clean sketch of Cerviche. Rough sketches for everyone else are already done as well.
    I'm so confused - do I use the cat's head to measure proportions, or should I still use human heads? What are the rules for anthropomorphics and humanoids?

    And rough sketches for another two concepts.

    Playing around a bit with Mendelian heredity
    Wasn't really paying attention when starting this sketch, but it turned out kinda interesting so I developed it a little more.

    ...and I'm back.
    Yikes, that was one hell of a break. And I started off so well too. My sincerest apologies to anyone who may have been paying attention to this sketchbook.
    I had a bunch of personal stuff to sort through, but I'm eager to get back to what I love.
    And thank you very much to SashaDevi for your encouragement, even though it took me some time before I actually saw it

    Now let's see if I can still remember how to hold a pencil.

    Ugh, so much rust piled up
    This'll take some time to get rid of...
    But hey, it's nice to be back.
