    Sketchbook by Ferris

    I've been in the printmaking world for the last few years, now I'm making a move back into my original passion of digital art and sequential art. Just starting up a sketchbook thread to get some feedback and critiques! My goal is to be proficient enough in the next five years to make work for independent comics and sequential illustration. I have a lot of work to do! This will be a place for others and myself to see quick sketches and studies! Thanks for looking!

    Did some life drawing this last Sunday. Here's a 20 minute pose. Her head is too big. I'll keep that in mind next time.

    Facial value studies. I've been looking at videos by Xia Tapatra lately, he does a good job of explaining facial structures.

    Hand Sketches. I use posemaniacs for reference on hands. They have this cool 3D model system, and I can turn the hands any way I want in 3 dimensions. Check it out.

    I like your figures they are very stylized. That's not a bad thing at all. Never let anyone tell you stylized isn't a good "style".

    Thanks Wrennwick! I appreciate the comments! And nope, there are so many different styles in the concept world, so I agree!

    Went to a life drawing session in KC this morning! Will be going every Wednesday morning now. Here are some gestures from the session. A mix of 2, 5, and 10 minute poses.

    For the next year or so, every week I'm going to work on a master study, from illustrations and illustrators who interest me and relate to what I want to do in the future. After that study, I'll do an illustration based off of the master image, and try to use what I learned about the composition, paint style, etc. I chose to start a study with a piece by Darren Bartley. His concept work is amazing, and I think I can learn a lot from him. His on left, mine on right.
