    d-CepTs doodles

    Thanks for dropping in on my sketchbook! Go to last page for latest work.

    Thought I'd start up one of these as well! I'll start off with some work I did a while ago, and finish off where I'm at now, more or less. I've gotten so much help from people on the forum 'til now, so big up to all of you! It's been great so far, and the only way is up, right?

    A few of these will probably be double posts, if that is frowned upon, let me know, and I'll kill those pictures that are.

    On with the show:

    Starting out is a couple of old sketches/paintings (not that old, but I forget to date my shit, so I'm not sure how old.)

    Old sketches...

    Here are a couple more, these were made between the tiger and the face somwhere in time. The red/blue face was my first attempt at airbrush. It was a fun piece to do! I used a ref, as far as I recall. The alien-dude was made while we were playing an RPG called Alternity, so he's supposed to be my character. The color on his staff was done in watercolors after the RPG session.

    I'm not going to bomb you guys with loads of my old material, so the above is so you get an idea of where I was at when I first started getting seriously into drawing and painting.

    Following is more recent stuff. Placed in as chronological order as I can remember

    I've done stuff in between as well, but below is a couple of ones I made lately.

    All of these were made with a graphite pencil.

    Some generic dude...
    (actually a lousy attempt at vin diesel from The Fast and the Furious-cover, but hey... )

    a twisted back study
    from ref.

    real quick self portrait... I like the one I did in charcoal better, but here it is. Gotta have some f***-ups to.

    d-CepTs doodles

    I messed around with this one in painter a bit. The colored version is in the "Guest self portrait"-section.

    Any pointers/crits/comments are more than welcome!

    As Buzzz said you΄re on the right way - your stuff is showing good potential. One thing I realized you should work on is your confidence of lines - you΄re quite often scribbling in short strokes that "feather up" the picture and make it seem "nervous". Try a bit working fast with strong lines - maybe with a pen instead of pencils.

    I know what I΄m taliking about, I΄m suffering from the same problems .

    Hope this could help a bit and you could understand my english.

    Fipse: Thanks man! Always nice to get encouraging words! Concerning the lines, yeah... I know! I'll try to clean it up and use stronger lines. I have a tendency to end up with a fuzzy image.

    More to come soon!

    Yes, indeed. Bags of potential here. I've written the same advice on my previous post, but I think it applies here too. Settle on a single lightsource, perhaps from the top left and stick to it. The orc with the earing is an example of where you need to apply this rule. Both sides of his nose are in shadow.

    Summer Pudding: Thanks, man! I'll keep it in mind, what with the lightsources and all!

    Here's a new batch. One from my head... a cave troll with lots of cocoons with more cavetrolls in them.

    d-CepTs doodles

    One from ref. I'm from Norway, and this is out largest feline animal; a lynx

    d-CepTs doodles

    and finally one from life.. it's an old ink-pot from my great grandfather. It turned out kinda twisted I think. I'm going to have to focus more on life drawings...

    d-CepTs doodles

    bring on the crits!

    I almost forgot! I didn't post for a couple of days, because I was on a trip with my day job (shudder) and I forgot my sketchbook at home (shame on me), but I found an envelope and a pen, so I got in a few real quick sketches... damn people on the docks couldn't stand still, dammit!

    Very good that you're doing work from life also.
    Moving people are very hard but the exercise is very good.
    I Like the lynx, maybe you can experiment with different pencils (hard soft), that way you get a more complete valuerange (I'm missing some very dark tones)
