    Mark's on Paper - Mark Kilkelly's Sketchbook

    After being away from this site while completing a colaborative animated film, and doing a bit of lurking before hand, I decided to post up a sketchbook thrend here after all.

    I figured it might be a good way of getting some critique on my random lesiure or even on my sketches before embarking on a finished piece of work, the latter probably being a wise thing given how I tend to make mistakes that I don't notice on a finished piece.

    In terms of updates, I can't promise that they'll be regular, per ce, because it will depend on how creative a mood I'll be feeling from time to time. I do try to draw as often as I can, but there are times when I feel drained as many others would, so this will be updated just about as often as my blogspot account.

    Anyway, I hope to get a good kick out of this and I'll appreciate any comments and feedback given. Just try to be nice and helpful.

    Forgot to mention that the attached image is a layout drawing of a troll house that I was assigned to do during my second year studying animation. It was done with graphite pencil originally, then I decided to colour it up in Photoshop CS5 a couple of months back.

    One of my recent sketches in photoshop cs5 is a Mentler and Benglis inspired play on mass, form and volume which is something I'm always concerned with when drawing.



    Another few recent sketches I did in the archaeology museum in Dublin of bog zombies. I just loved how deformed and withered this particular one is. And its skull was so imploded that it looked like two completely different people when viewed from either side. Again, they're graphite and photoshop but I was really playing around with a texture brush that I got from a recent issue of Imagine FX magazine.

    Thanks Arula.

    Now that I look back at it, I also forgot to post up this little rabbit from a project that I'm working on, involving bunnies making rice cakes on the moon!

    Free booze ? Imma drink all o'that ! : D

    Dude that is a good start ! I really like the design of the house. ( but I think the landscape feels a little "empty". but if it was for an animation, it can be justified. )
    Also, skull studies are good ! Keep going !

    Thanks Shad.

    Yeah, the troll house was made in my second year doing animation so it was made with that in mind. I agree that it could have had something more in it, though, unless that would have made it cluttered.

    I havenít been doing a lot of figure drawing lately, and boy am I feeling the consequences. Trying to do anatomically detailed figures in full hasnít been working out well today, so I looked at Matessiís books and tried working from his gestural drawings.



    Iíll probably take the same approach with photo reference tomorrow so I can build up the feeling more. Also did some rough abstractions of head shapes.



    Really need to watch my placement with these a bit more. I was also tightening up my knowledge through Gnomen Workshops, more particularly the David Finch ones.



    Iíll try and do some more with whatever spare time Iíll get tomorrow.

    Hey, nice SB! Loved the troll house, looks awesome. It just needs some kind of story to stand by itself, imho.

    Nice to see you're also following David Finch's method . Keep 'em coming!

    Well, I’ve been going up and down Dublin for the past couple of days and it looks like I’ll have an internship in the bag starting next week, which is awesome.

    Some stuff I’ve been doing in whatever spare time I could get:

    Started taking Matessi's 'warm up' method with some photo reference of figures. Beginning to feel more confident with gestural sweeps again, so the next step is to start adding in more anatomical detail on top when I can.

    And since I like detail, I started filling up some fragmented pages of eyes.

    And a little something I’ve been working on. Need to fix some areas but I’ll do the rough clean up once I come back to it with a fresh perspective.

    All I really got done today was a random line art drawing of Finn from Adventure Time as Batman.



    Also tried colouring in an old sketch of Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden and got bored of it very quickly. :L

    Hey Metal!
    Cool stuff, you have a good understanding of anatomy, proportions and your cartoony stuff has a nice flow to it. But I wanted to see some more finished works!
    Keep goin'!
