Tofa's sketchbook, C&C appreciated
Hi all, I'm an aspiring artist who wants to get into character design/concept art. It's a dream that I've had for a long time but the past couple of years have been rough and I've gone through a lot of stuff that's hindered me from getting to where I wanna be.
All thats in the past now and I'm focused on getting back to where I was a few years ago. I want that passion for drawing back in my life.
Here's my old CA sketchbook (2009)
.Here's my blog which has more recent stuff
I want to improve on my digital painting mostly. But I'll be working everyday on all of my respective weaknesses in art.
Didnt really know where to start and being that it's been months since I touched my drawing tablet I decided to start with some shading exercises, it was pretty painful as my art muscle is a dribbling mess atm.
Let's see if we can get it growing nice and quickly again

I'm gonna be posting everything I do even if it's just stuff I'm not particularly proud of so here are some doodles from my sketchbook, the beggining drawings are the first I'd done in a long time, most of these done whilst I was at the beach

Your sketches are pretty cute, and they have a lot of expression. I've seen your old work and it impressed me quite a bit
This newer stuff is quite different from what you were doing before? Any reason why the stylistic changes? I don't have much to say in the way of critique unfortunately. For what they are I think they;re quite nice. Good proportions in a lot of the faces.

Turpentine: hey man thanks for checking out my sketchbook. Appreciate the kind words
Reason for the style change is I studied 2 years of traditional animation animation and that influenced me a lot.
Today's post. Working on understanding the form in the face a bit more by using tone, not too confident in my pencil rendering but pleased with these.

CR Faerber + FatMoStank: thanks a lot guys appreciate it
stiff male study and something from imagination. Also a bunch of female studies, female form is one of my biggest weaknesses

good job on the female form sketches dewd.
I think I'll try something like that next, haven't done ANY female studies at all yet ¬¬

CR Faerber: thanks man go for it
Was ill yesterday and couldn't bring myself to draw anything, started this study last night when I was feeling better.
Found this awesome reference album of a sculpt someone had made to help with the understanding of the planes of a head. Here's the link if anyone is interested >>> here

Psychobuddy: cheers bud, I will do!
Here's a wip, putting it up cos I want C&C (on porpotions design whatever). Used the female study I did (scroll up) and a moebius pic as ref (as i dunno much about space suits and love those knee/shoulder pads + moebius )
Pretty happy with it but I'm sure its beaming with errors that I'm not skilled enough to see
C&C mucho welcome

Nice one dewd I see improvements already!

CR Faerber: thanks man
Another study, i need to do some focusing on legs, cos they're a nightmare and couldnt really see what the abs were about, they were like a formless mass with really soft definition.
