    David York's Daily Sketchbook

    To start, I am a video game developer and software engineer by trade. With perhaps a dozen or so exceptions over the last decade or so, I do not draw or otherwise create visual art.

    However, my friend Railboy has informed me that if I participate in the daily sketch group for about an hour per day I will see skills develop and phenomenal improvement over 3 months.

    He had better be right!!! <-- Sarcastic humor here.

    Anyway, here goes.

    DSG 477 - Open Ended: All of Gods Children

    This is based on a holocaust photo featuring a giant pile of bodies. It took 20 min just to block it! It was VERY HARD for me, but I'm not unhappy with it. What we are seing is a tiny 'finished' corner, the blocked image is about 400 by 300.

    wowow, didnt notice you had started a thread! your buddy is right, you'll get better if you do it on a daily basis. id almost suggest that you work in value, just to get a hang of that first...working with color is a whole new animal. i'm curious how much of the photograph you rely on, but you're getting something out of it. in 3 pictures you look more confident. if you need any help or anything, feel free to ask.

    going to sketch night tonight?!?!?! 5 hours away!!!
    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    DSG 478 - Open Ended: The Grudge

    No actual attempt at quality, no references (which I rely heavily on), just something really bad to make me feel better about my other work and 'loosen up' a bit.

    Jetpack, Fridge, thanks for the encouragement! I can't make it tonight, I'm in a mad coding fest for a game title I'm working on. Maybe next week.

    Thanks! I appreciate the encouragement!

    I am not aware of a recent Joust, but Midway has released an 'Arcade Treasures' which has lots of emulated games, including Joust. It also has original concept art, interviews with the creators, and other good stuff. I highly recommend it, I have it for the Gamecube and it is very satisfying.

    DSG 480 - Open Ended: Hell

    Learning to use a Wacom tablet. Learning to be more "sketch-like" - focusing on entire piece for an hour instead of just a corner. This image is "pre-squinted" (reduced from original size).
