    SPACEMAN Sketchbook - Pentel, Painting, Comic work, Illustration

    I am a drifter. I need to be more consistent. I put down illustration / concept art for a couple of years and have been focusing on design, writing and music. Creativity...It's a journey of faith for me.

    I recently came back alive to art. It all started wit the below painting. It was done for a charity and really set me on fire again:

    I also managed to get the comic I was working on HERE published, which was great. Below is the process and finished prints:

    New Pentel sketches

    I really enjoy playing with line and colour. I have recently purchased some beautiful Pentel pens. Photo below:

    loomis

    I forgot to say!

    Piemonster: thanks very much, I love inking. I am working as a graphic designer at the moment, but have always loved illustration and have illustrated a published childrens book and kids comic.

    TNiznet: thanks very much, I am glad you enjoyed the fox... I love character design and he is my favourite so far.

    I have been studying Andrew Loomis' book - drawing faces and hands. Its very good. Below are some studies I've done, not nessacarily very well done, but this is a process book right?

    Woah your work from ref is great! Especially the ones with brush pen, LOVING THEM!

    Try and do loads of imagination stuff. I find that after an hour of small sketches and stuff, I'm completely out of ideas. If I push myself to keep drawing from imagination after that I come up with the things I like the most.

    Keep at it man, you're definitely doing great!!

    Hi, thanks for the comments and looking at my work.

    Your stuff is really cool, your characters tell great stories with there gestures and your ink work is fantastic. Have you seen Atoms for peace website? Or any artwork from Radioheads music? I'd love to see you do an animated music video or something.

    more studies

    - Othrandir, thanks for the encouragement. Yeah, I need to get in the habit of doing smaller sketches and keeping loose at the rough stage. I need to keep pushing myself, like you do. I really love working with the brush pen, but it takes time, and its hard to be loose... though some people are able to be quite loose with ink it never reaslly works out for me. Thats why I am trying to work in pencil while I keep developing the foundations of drawing in my SB. However, I hope to do a lot of work in ink in the future!
    - Dayle, I hadn't seen Atoms for Peace's website, but its pretty cool. Radiohead cover is classic. I don't know if I have the patience to get into animation... but I do see what you mean. Thanks for the words of encouragement, helps!

    Below are a few studies I did over the weekend.

    It's great you're doing some studies, but don't be afraid of using guidelines in your work. The proportions in your faces are a bit off at times, especially the relationship between the eyes and the noses. (the nose is too long in some of the drawings, mainly the portaits) You don't seem to have the same problem with your profiles. I have the same struggle as you, but the other way around, I still have some struggles with profiles

    Super nice stuff so far! Your use of contrast with ink is wonderful, I just recently started using brushpen and it's a wonderful thing. When you do pieces other than with pen, it seems your work stiffens up somewhat(Post #8, your ink work vs. the pencil work). I believe you would be able to loosen it up by doing gestures and figure drawing with different mediums. You've got a fantastic energy with your pen stuff, I'd love to see that transferred to your other work as well!
