    Rinus Sketchbook

    Hello guys
    First of all, I'm kind of new in here, I've had an account until 8 years ago or something like that, and I've been checking out the forums every once in a while since. My Name is Rino or Rinu, I'm 25 years old, living in Switzerland and I am working as a Graphic Designer, planning to be a full time Graphic Designer / Illustrator / Concept Artist some day.

    I thought it best to open up a sketchbook in here to get some critique to my work, so I know what I have to work on. These are just some random Sketches yet, I didn't paint a full image since a long long time ago.

    Is it okay if I leave my watermarks in the pictures? I just prepared it for my blog like this but I can remove it if it's distracting.

    The guy in the forest and the war tree are something for a comic idea I've once had. In the end there are "making of"s from the floating guy and the pencil warrior.

    Alright, feel free to criticize and thanks for your attention.

    Hi Rinu
    Great that you finally started a sketchbook! The creatures look really cool, and no I didn't find the watermark distracting (dunno bout the others), in fact I thought it worked quite well with the images
    Hope to see more of your work.

    Hello! I'm trying to improve my artwork and I really could use your critique - S k e t c h b o o k

    Some more sketches

    The stable sketch is the closest I've come to a full drawing in terms of composition and storytelling. It should depict a strange newborn animal laying in a stable being observed by a crow.

    The idea for the living stone is from some DSG I think, but it never got out of the sketch phase. In the red thing I tried to practise my shading techniques.

    The insect merchant is a character that I did a month ago and the second one is a sketch of a zombie-monkey-ish thing

    Here's a burnt falconer as an entry to the ChOW#299, a ghostly member of the royal court.

    My choice was a falconer that died together with his bird in a fire.

    I guess I wanted to do to much at once, and got lost somewhere.

    I did the left one in color first, but wasnt content with the pose, so I worked it over and ended up with the one on the right, with more comic-style proportions (notice the falcon looking like a grilled chicken). I was still not satisfied and worked on some silhouettes, ending up with a more painful pose, resembling the burning of the character.

    It was a fun challenge, and very interesting to research the costumes and the bird.

    Didn't draw much in the last months. Finally I got into painting a bit more again, so here's a werewolf.

    Here's some Value study, where I tried to copy the values of the reference, without using the eye dropper tool of course.

    Then there's some rogue-like character, I've had some trouble getting the values right on the whole body.

    Well, here's a bunch of scans from my actual sketchbook. The poses are from the 60-second-drawing-mode of posemaniacs.org, the tree is right in front of my apartment, and the reference for the portrait of the smiling guy is from the drawing script.

    A quick and dirty little illustration for a small mailing. Drawn with a ballpen on paper, the cardboard is added digitally. (how cheap, I know)

    Finally got to do a quick little character again. Messed around with a few techniques and this is what came out: A grumpy piglet

    Hedgehog Farmer

    A really quick random scribble which developed in this kind of interesting character. I don't know him yet, but he looks kind of sad. As far as I know he's some kind of farmer as well, maybe he is farming worms with this hack tool. Maybe I'll meet him again in another sketch we'll see
