    Mothman's Sketchbook

    Hi everyone,

    I’ll post images ranging from simple pencil doodles to finished digital paintings. My posts will include older work as well as the more recent and up to date.

    I’ll do my best to post as often as I can as my main aim is to progress and improve as quickly as I can.

    As always bring on the comments, critique and suggestions, they are more than welcome.

    Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!

    More alien head warm ups, a colour creature sketch and a couple of pencil character sketches.

    A few of these have already been posted, but I want to try and get everything in one place.

    Feedback is welcome

    Hi all,

    Here are some more alien head warm ups both value and colour, these are a fun way to loosen up as there are little to no limitations.

    Also some pencil pages including a still life, hand studies and a couple of pages from imagination.

    Thanks

    hi thanks for stopping by my sb

    Nice style man

    Some of your aliens are very very nice looking like the green one with six eyes

    or the white in red background

    not much to crit

    Perhpas i would sugegst you do some gesture drawing to loosen up more your pencil , just because you can't loosen enough

    also don't forget to make a focus area when you design (just a reminder, not you're doing bad)

    keep up

    Thanks for your time and comments zou, much appreciated. I agree with your tip on gesture drawing as I feel that my work (in general) needs to loosen up/become more dynamic. Also I agree that sometimes I need to pick and choose which parts of an image to detail.

    Thanks again and keep up the good work buddy, i'll definately keep an eye on your sb (and make more constructive comments next time)

    Here are some more alien head warm-ups, a few colour alien head and full character designs and finally some pencil sketches.

    Thanks for your time.

    You have very lovely creative work. I would agree with loosening up as some of your pencil line work looks to be a bit scratchy. Another suggestion: try drawing some female alien heads?
    My Sketchbook, please give me critique!

    Aya-kun: Thank you, i appreciate your time and comments it means a lot

    VedaSword: Thank you for your comments and taking the time to look I really appreciate it. I do need to loosen up and I see what you mean about the short scratchy marks instead of clean flowing lines. Oh and I promise to post some female alien head designs very soon, especially for you


    Time for some more alien head designs both in value and colour, a couple of character designs and some pencil sketches to finish off.

    Hey amazing aliens, very interesting looking all of them! Both color and BW ones look great.

    About your anatomy studies, hands actually, those seem a bit soft/boneless. Which was/is my problem too and I found exaggerating the bones around joint areas and drawing more "bony" hands (does that make sense, I'm not master of advice haha??) helped me to figure out the anatomy better. Anyway, keep up the good work, your sketchbook looks really good so far!

    Aya-kun: Im glad you keep visiting I see what you mean with the teeth, i need a much more subtle approach when laying down lines between the teeth as more light can reach that area than im communicating with a hard line. Thank you so much for putting the time into the edit, creating the gif and the useful links, I appreciate it.

    certo: That makes perfect sense. I see what you mean, they look like "play-doh" hands with little underlying structure. I'll try exaggerating the bone structure next time. Thank you for your time and advice, it means a lot.

    Artplur: Thank you, I appreciate it


    Its time for even more alien heads in both value and colour, a few character designs, pencil sketches and some thumbnails to finish!

    Thanks for your time

    yuniken: Thank you, that means a lot. Your sketches are very cool too.


    Its been agonising not being able to post anything recently, here goes...

    Some fresh value and colour alien heads (including a full body design of one of the alien heads), an alien bust design, a random value illustration piece and a few pages of pencil sketches to finish with.

    Thanks for your time

    The first two in Your last post look really great! you're showing the material of the surface, The amount of detail that you put in your characters and portraits is very interesting and plausible!

    Try to make things look more 3D!

    Wow! good alien studies! Neat and great detail. Your style is very refreshing and you know where you are heading Mind if I ask you a question? How long does it take for you to sketch one alien's head? This sketchbook is inspiring. Keep up the good work! I will surely visit this more often

    amin4real: Thank you Amin. I do try to make every design functional and as believable as I can. I agree that the first two alien head designs in the last post are easier on the eye than some of the others

    Also I agree that some of the images do suffer from looking a little flat, i'll keep it in mind. Your comments and critique are much appreciated.

    Oatestwder: Thanks so much that means a lot

    springofsea: I appreciate your kind words Im working towards a loose but controlled style. The value alien heads take from 20 to 40 mins and the colour ones take from 40 to 60 mins, the more detailed designs may have taken longer. Your welcome back anytime

    Thank you all for time


    More alien heads as usual in value and colour, a "Dishonored" (computer game) inspired head design, a very spherical enemy design, a colour study and some pencil sketches.

    Thank you for taking a look.

    It's interesting to know that you have certain passion for aliens. I'm currently searching for my drawing focus too but haven't found it yet. Drop by my sketchbook if you have spare time (not really as cool as yours, really my sketchbook is very ordinary *sob*) & let's be friends who support each other in CA

    Great stuff man! - You love aliens a lot - One thing I noticed that you could use base values a lot more - you used them on a few sketches, like making a belt or another material etc. in a darker/lighter value then the rest and shading it with values that dont get as dark/light as the rest. I see a bit the tendency that you mostly have one value over your characters and then work out the forms with the light and highlights - there is more potential - wish you a great day!

    Hey people!

    I apologise for not keeping up with posts recently.

    springofsea: Ive always had an interest with characters, creatures and more recently aliens as the possibilities are almost endless.

    Im sure you'll find your focus soon, just draw anything and everything and eventually you'll come across a subject you truly enjoy, just dont stop creating in the meantime.

    I'll definately drop by your sketchbook soon and of course we can be ca.org buddies

    Thank you for your time and comments, I truly appreciate it.

    xysdf: I do love those aliens haha! Like is said to "springofsea" I enjoy the potential for creativity and variation the subject gives.

    So I should give different areas of an image their own base/local values depending on material/texture and resist giving the whole piece a single midtone then rendering it all in a similar value range (hope I understood that correctly???). That makes a lot of sense, i'll definately keep this in mind from now on.

    This personalised feedback is gold dust, thank you so much for your time and effort


    This post includes alien head designs in value and colour, a colour study and a few pages of pencils.

    Thank you for taking the time to look!
