Thread: Chevy's sketches.
August 2nd, 2012 #1
Hello everyone. After hours and hours of viewing the incredible work in these forums, I've decided to throw in my own stuff. I'm a lazy bastard and I don't practice as much as I should, but that's a pretty common vice. Anyways, I hope you enjoy my thread, and I will try to update as much as possible.

Here are some recent sketches I've done. One of these days I'm going to stop using random pump pencils I find around the office and buy some graphite and charcoal.

Strange. After scanning some images to post here, I realize that I tend to sketch things on the edges of the paper. It's really weird. Maybe I just got used to doodling on the edges of my school work and it stuck with me. In any case, I'll try to remember that and draw in the middle.
Here are a few I did a couple of weeks ago. You'll notice I experimented with adding some ink. The cheap gel pens I have lying around apply really easy, but they make really big lines. It's hard to keep them sharp. It was fun though!

Just found this pic of a Draugr I drew way back when Skyrim was still taking over my life! That game was ridiculously buggy, but ridiculously fun too.

This will probably be my last upload today. I have a ton of sketches lying around, but the majority of them are completely random, or unfinished, or really really old. I might go through them later and pick out the better ones.
These are some paintings I've done in Painter. I just started about three months ago with color and it has been REALLY challenging. But it's been fun too. With time, and plenty of inspiration from this forum, I hope to get better and perhaps one day break into some actual concept work.
All these are speed paintings, done in 1-2 hours. I want to do some that are faster though, maybe 30-40min tops. I really need to practice brush economy.

Okay... THIS will be my last post today, I promise.
I pretty much just draw characters and I've been trying to break myself from that routine. A few months ago I started a ref pic of an old tractor, and after several weeks of going back and forth with it, I ended up adding a background and doing far more work on it than I ever intended. Anyways, I liked how it came out, so, here it is.

I lied... I'm posting again.
Did this really quick at work today. It was one of those, "I must get this out of my head or I will go mental!" sort of things.

Here are some speedies I did tonight in painter. I've been looking at all the loose and wild pieces here and it inspired me to loosen myself up. I just went crazy with the shapes and let my hand form things randomly that I thought would look good. Some things worked great, some things didn't work at all. But that's what ctrl/z is for! Everything didn't come out perfect, but it was still lots of fun.

Not sure if it's worth posting, but I did a little doodle at work today.

Just a quickie. About an hour or so. Just wanted to get the image out of my head really.

This is quite a good first page of your sketchbook so far. Your pencil work so far is fantastic, has a unique look to it. Your colors get a little muddy in your digital work though.

Thanks Xamllew! I agree, my digital work with colors still need lots of work. All I ever worked with is pencil, and transitioning those skills to color has been quite the challenge. I feel like with a reference, I'm not so bad, but drawing from imagination makes me fall back on my pencil work, which doesn't necessarily translate to color so well. It's 'ok', but definitely needs improvement. I need to practice practice practice!

This was a super quick painting I did tonight. Did quite a few, but didn't really like any of them. This one is 'ok'. It's pretty loose, but, that's what I was going for. I've been trying to practice weird shaped ships. This one isn't anything special really, but it was good practice with the tilted angle and what not.
