    Scribbles, Doodles and Regret

    After quite a bit of a slumber, I figured I'll try and reactivate myself here with a sketchbook, this place being so bustling with useful critique when I last tread these grounds. Without much further note, here's some mediocre, stagnant stuff. Some stuff older than other stuff, and not in a particular order. The only goal is improvement from hereon.

    Venomisia: Thank you plenty. That was a picture for some homebrew DnD lore.

    And here's a lazy building thing.

    Kakao: Thank you plenty, I'm glad you feel inspired to do more. As for your work, I'm liking your energetic approach with- actually I'll save this as a reply in your sketchbook.

    Here's a few quick tests regarding environments, and what spectacular failures they are, as the samurai is pointing out.

    Some stuff, mostly rendering tests and thumbs and frustration.
    Edit: It doesn't want to show all the images, apparently. Hm.

    oh dayum. top notch stuff as usual, man. i really like how smooth that greyscale bum piece is. i also really dig the brushwork on the fire-horsey and the greyscale man-goat-demon thing, he's pretty cool. reminds me of ben newman's wierder stuff.

    Great stuff in here. I really like those thumbnails. Your posing is great! Lots of energy, and some really cool armor designs. Keep pushing and posting mate!

    Kakao: Much appreciated. I do like Ben Newman, I'm honored that my work would remind you of him in any manner. I gotta get better at rendering stuff though.. Always ends up a bit too stale and emotionless when I take stuff further.

    Chevy28360: Thank you, I'm glad you like the thumbs and poses. Gotta love doodling them armors.

    A quick eh.. somehwat-maybe-environment thing as well as a wip image loosely based on THIS. The head of that lizard is way tiny and the feet are terrible, gotta fix that. I really gotta get my hands on some environment practice too, ugh.

    Gotta do some more studies. Maybe I'll take a gander through some work by Jake Mancini, Kai Lim and others.. Hnngh..!
    If you have any suggestions for artists that do some great environmental stuff, drop me a name, I'd really like to analyse some work this weekend and next week.

    EDIT: Additionally a deity for some homebrew rpg stuff as well as a quick thumbnail environment study.. thing.

    Nice sketchbook, you show a really strong grasp of shapes and line. Especially in those thumbnails and sketches, the design is expressed really well even on such a small canvas.

    You do have interesting color choices, but they don't seem as strong as your b/w work. Still looking forward to seeing more though.

    Catghost: Much appreciated, thank you! I agree, I do need a better grasp in color overall. It's probably because I spent a good two years making nothing but monochrome drawings. Terrible mistake, haha.

    Kimonas: Glad you like it. It's an old drawing that just happened to turn out well, probably my best doodle from that time.

    Misty Feather: Greatly appreciated, thank you!

    OverlordGunnar: Thanks, here's to unlocking said potential!


    A quick thumb from yesterday, and today I did a quick progress check from thumbnail to rough render. In addition, I decided to do a bit of a bold move and try a completely different approach in coloring. I think it's quite a mess all in all.
    Might edit this post later this evening to add some further stuff I'll do. Maybe.

    sweet armors & demons!
    your shading looks good and the poses are strong.
    Curious as to how your sketchbook is going to evolve ( especially the colored bits )
    Keep at it!

    Smurkum: Thank you plenty! Here's some colored bits now.

    I played around with some brush ideas while at it, and I think I'll need to handcraft a new set for myself at some point, to get more chaos going on, give a more effective impressionistic look to some aspects that are better left for viewers' interpretation.

    Hey man, had a look at all your stuff again and ill give you my thoughts! I think you are really good at using colours and tones effectively, and at fleshing out concepts. You have a good eye for these things. If you want to improve i think you need to work on form, as a lot of your stuff looks flat. I think you might be able to do this by doing more anatomy studies and still lifes - working on perspective and wedging. It might seem like a tough one now, but if you manage to get this right as well, your images will really come to life. Hope that helps!

    Kimonas: Thank you for the feedback! You are right, perspective especially is something I'm absolutely horrible at. Gotta do more work towards fixing these aspects, hnnngh... Still lifes especially is something I'll have to do at some point, since I barely ever touch that subject. Few backhanded swings would be in order for that.

    Misty Feather: Thank you, will do!

    It's been a slow Sunday. I did some quick doodles which I didn't end up saving. A bad habit that I'll need to get rid of really. The bad sketches should be posted as well, it gives more of an image what I'm doing wrong in the first place.
    Next week will be a bit slower for me, for I have quite a bit of paperwork to deal with, as well as a trip of 500km/310mi for a college entry exam. Plus I need to move out soon. I'm a little stressed about all that. Either way, here's a dwarf's head. Did some observations through multiple sketchbooks here and decided to add a bit of a value effect later on the image rather than sooner. I think it may be something I'll have to experiment more on as well. I gotta make a list.

    EDIT: Additional testing about color+value. May continue this piece further, but tomorrow I'll try and do some studies. If not still life or anatomy, at least some more gestures if nothing else. Gotta do something before I'm off to the entry exam.

    EDIT: An hour of 2-minute gestures.
