    Markus's Sketchbook

    Here's some of my stuff, so far. I decided not to upload the stuff I did (and still am doing) on paper since it's all pure basics, fundamentals, warmups and such. These are, from a roughly 6 or 7 months period. Can't think of much to say. Feel free to criticize, ask questions, suggest stuff and whatnot.

    Some of the quick sketches I did for practice (and also out of boredom):

    Then I tried to take some "complex" shapes and shade/color them. Guess I should do more basics but your comments are, as always, welcomed:

    Thanks! That's a very nice thing to hear.

    Here are two more sketches and I'm probably done with updating for today but I will continue with drawing.

    This second sketch was inspired by Cecil Kim's work:

    I've decided to upload a sample of the basic/fundamental stuff I do. My scanner became useless when Windows 7 came out (long time ago) so I had to use my crappy digital camera but I think that quality doesn't play an important role in this case.

    Anyways tho, I don't set any rules for myself as in: "I'll do this for this amount of hours and then switch to that other thing". I just push myself to spend at least 10 hours a day drawing and by that I mean mostly stuff like this. The boring stuff. When I get sick of it (tho I must admit, I really do enjoy doing this boring stuff, seriously) I fire up the Photoshop and some sketches like those I posted before.

    I use both sides of the paper when I do stuff like this.

    @Leonthepro - Thanks!
    @Cojac - That's one of my favorite things to hear I guess. I'm happy when I notice my own progress but it's really motivating when someone else notices and points it out.


    Hope everyone's having a nice day, here are two more:

    Feels like ages since the last update. Had to spend some time with my family so I took a small brake for the holidays. Here's some new stuff.

    Here's my latest sketch. I should probably upload more at once, this is getting kinda annoying. But anyways, hope you take a look:

    Nice stuff! Definitely keeping an eye on this thread! I love your industrial designs and other concepts but your anatomy and proportions could use a bit of work. Try looking at some of the old masters' sketches (Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, etc.) and do some studies of them. I do that frequently and even though I am FAAAR from good they have helped me out a lot. Keep it up!

    For lack of a better signature...

    You've got some sweet stuff going here.
    Try rendering some of your ideas out a little further.

    You've got a nice quick and loose pen from the looks of it. I like it!

    @Sloth - Thanks! Btw, that seems like a good idea. I do agree that would be helpful.

    @DoubleThink - To be honest I am kinda "afraid" of further rendering. I'm already trying it out tho. Guess it's one of those things that you don't feel very comfortable doing but you get around sooner or later. Thank you!

    Also, I'm sorry it took me some time to reply. I just had some things going on in my private life. Things are getting back in place slowly. Here's some new stuff. I also experimented a bit with colors again:

    Hey guys. Long time no see... Well, I'm soon gonna start working on a cruise ship as an assistant waiter. I'm looking at it as an temporary job. Pays really good, you get to travel and see stuff, figured out it might be a good way to earn some money so I can afford myself some serious education in this field (concept art/game design). In USA of course. It's been a while since my whole life is turning around that. Here's my latest piece. I might do some more before I embark, some time next month a bit later, but I think I won't have much free time once I'm on board. Nevertheless, my sketchbook and pencil are always gonna be by my side. Hope you like this sketch and as always, I'm looking forward to your comments.

    Good work and improvement. I would suggest you could increase your line art and brush stroke confidence and you'll find it a lot more useful. So like everyday for 10 minutes just draw long lines as straight as possible and draw circles as accurately as possible, maybe fill a page or two then move on to fast figure drawings and then compare your older drawings after a few months

    Yeah I do that a lot. I'm confident with my lines and freehand drawing. Everything I ever do is freehand.

    Well I'm kinda back. I sold my old Wacom Bamboo cos I needed some money before I leave (for that cruise ship job) to buy a new Camera... and then I sold my guitar and bought a new Wacom Bamboo. Maybe I got addicted or something. I'm still waiting for the departure tho, I don't even know when I'm supposed to leave or anything. Last thing heard they had 4 ships in dry docks.

    Anyways, here's a new piece AND I wanted to upload another one BUT I keep getting this error or whatever. It's annoying, it doesn't even say why it failed. It just... failed. I can't upload any more images. Can anyone tell me what's that all about? Hoping to get some feedback from you guys.

    Here something new. I intentionally left out some of the riggings since it started to kinda "choke" the whole thing. Critique is very much welcomed.

    I've been studying dinosaur anatomy a bit. Here's a skeleton of one, it's just a rough sketch with "a few" bones missing intentionally.

    Thank you!

    Anyways, quit my cruise ship job which was terrible. Got back home, bought Intuos5 and started drawing again. Doing daily sketches since then.

    Here's some stuff before I went on ship:

    This is a piece that I've done as a cover of my friends work who's actually more into a whole different thing, not concept art, but the idea seemed cool so I wanted to do it my way:
