    Talking Magicwax Wips & Sketches

    NSFW - Magicwax Worx

    Hi Guys

    I am a graphic Designer working in advertising, looking to move into illustration.
    Going to start this post of with a collection of some older & more current pieces which range from sketches to finished pieces.
    I do most of my work digitally but still keep a few pencil sketchbooks going and I dabble in oils whenever I get the chance

    I'm looking to impove and experiment as much as possible. Any helpfull tips very welcome.

    Thanks in advance for looking.

    A mix of sketches and concept work. Some of these are being developed a little further.

    These are from my bedside sketchbook. Each night I try and do a few before lights out. About 2-5 min each.

    Experimenting with a more traditional feel while pushing the colors.

    Wow! I really love your sketchbook ^^ I love this sort of red monster in your first post. Really amazing work! You seem to be really versatile and this is pretty cool! I like those little face sketches you did. Great job and I hope to see more

    I keep a digital sketchbook at work which I add to daily. Usually anatomy stuff and quick creature sketches. These are some from this week. Deadline week for me so I do not get to play as much as I would like.

    Some landscape sketches from this week. This is my color practice for oil painting. Breaking the piece into color groups and then color temperature and finally into relative values. I keep it very simple...5min no more and only 1-2 brushes.

    Some sketches from a series of studies I did for an illustration I'm working on. Was looking for a strong action line and power in the figure.

    Nice work! Your characters have a lot of spunk. Your piece "the last laugh" in the first post gave me chills.

    Only crit I have is that something about the butts in your girly pose sketches seems a little off. :|

    Some life drawing from this week. Quick 2min gestures and some longer 15-20min poses. Quite rusty with life studies but so much fun and so rewarding.

    Study from Photo, trying for a more natural brush feel. Used 2 brushes, default hard round and a chalky.
