    Morkai resurrects a sketchbook

    Hi all,

    Last time I posted here was in 2005, holy cow!
    Trying to give myself reasons to keep up the art hobbies when I can. I've collected a wife, two daughters, a degree, and a new job since I was last posting here, so draw time is limited pretty much to lunch breaks and naps, but I was inspired recently to stop making excuses and "just pick up the pencil and draw!"

    Edited: moving art to another thread to fix thumbnail issues

    These are about as new as it gets, I scanned the bug (does look robotic, I'll have to work on that) just the other day. Plenty more to come though

    Hey Morkai, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

    You've got some nice stuff in here and I especially like the clean style of the avatar. Looking forward to seeing more stuff from you.

    10/12/2012 Update - studies n' concept art

    Candra: Thanks for stopping by, I'll keep plugging away!

    Trying to draw at least a little every day, and fit in a batch of figure/gesture studies before work.
    First batch of studies, focusing too much on detail and not on gesture/forms:

    Second batch after I read up on finding the C-shaped line of action, was much happier with the ability to catch the pose:

    A bit of concept work for my game, feeling out ideas for the starting/non-upgraded equipment for the female character

    Update 10-31-2012 :: Happy Halloween!

    I have more pages of studies I want to scan in soon just to add to the thread and chronicle the learning process, but in the meantime here's a work in progress of the two protagonists from post 1. Studies have already helped me a lot, much happier with their direction and style.

    To those of you where it's culturally appropriate: Happy Halloween!

    11/1/2012 - Expressions!

    Just a quick sketch to throw in here, I'm pleasantly surprised that I'm happy with these, given that trying to invent expressions usually looks horrible. Yay for head studies.
    These are quick expression shots for the girl in the previous post, no ref.

    11/2/2012 - Another work in progress

    Posting this here just to track it, probably the most complicated pose/layout I've ever done for a drawing.
    Yay for perspective!...?

    2012 Nov 6 - Yet another WIP

    Vices: Thanks a lot, man! Hopefully it'll keep its "cool" factor as I work it over.

    This is being thrown together for the current 2D jam, it's also (according to a promise I made to myself) the last new piece I'll start working on until I finish the other works-in-progress I've already posted in here. (Studies don't count, those are just good for the soul) One of my biggest faults as an artist (man, that sounds pretentious) is never "finishing" a piece. I'm not talking the last 3%, more like the last 35%.

    Another fault is never using color. Blazing new territory here! Woo!

    2012 Nov 8 - Some progress

    Cleaned up most of the details I wanted to add in the line stage, it's just missing a nice background shipwreck. And most of the rendering...but I like that it's keeping the spirit of the original idea.
