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!

Facial value studies. I've been looking at videos by Xia Tapatra lately, he does a good job of explaining facial structures.
And some face sketches on the computer.

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".

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.

This is a study of a mech, illustrated by Takumer Homma. This one was pretty challenging, because of the rhythm of the shapes, and trying to have each shape relate to the other shapes correctly. After painting this, I definitely realize that if you can see shapes, you can draw anything. Check out Homma's concept work, really dang inspiring.

Sketches from the last few days. I'm trying to get some more character in my faces. I've always drawn these generic faces, I'm trying to get out of that rut. And practice with simple simple armor concepts. Thoughts please Any suggestions? I'm doing more and more research and practice with trying to come up with concepts.

Todays drawings from my 3 hour session in the morning. Combination of 1-15 minutes, with a brush pen. I like working with the pen because for some reason I'm more loose.

You have really interesting male faces, maybe try and use softer shapes for women though?

Super quick Trevor Claxton study. I love his characters, super dynamic, and full of personality. Really focused on getting the shapes down, and values, with less attention to detail. I'll get better at these....

Sketches from the last few days. Really working on just getting a gesture for a pose down quickly, loosening up, faces and value studies of faces, and other things. Let me know what you think

I like your proportions. Again you're stylizing your figures but you pull it off. It looks awsome! Righteous!

Thanks @Wrennwick! I appreciate it!
Here's a quick painting that I did in Photoshop, today. Need to start painting a lot more than I do, if I want to get better. I used a blanket to wrap around my head, for reference on the drapery.

Pose for tonight's life drawing. About 1.75 hours.

Quick 25 minute fan art sketch of Curtis, from the movie 'Snowpiercer'. Nothing great, just wanted to draw up a strong character. If you haven't seen the movie, please do, and please read the comic too!

Went to the Nelson Atkins museum, amazing source of master work, and luckily it's free in here in KC! Tried to do a few quick studies before they closed. After the Nelson, went over to the plaza to draw some quick gestures of people walking around and sitting in the evening.

Had a really good drawing day, all day yesterday, Wednesday. Went to life drawing for 3 hours in the morning, and drew with a friend at a pretty hot spot in KC, after. Super inspirational day. Here are some things.

It's been a long long time since I've posted anything here, since last June!! I'm going to try and make a real effort to post here as much as possible, I've drawing non-stop since this last post. Since June, I've tried drawing from observation everyday, and I go to a life drawing class every Wednesday morning. When not drawing from observation, I'm working on character concepts, and have been developing a story with robots in a world existing with no humans. So here's a dump of some sketches over the last few months, this is very few out of many. I was focused on digital painting for a while, but I've noticed that I keep switching back to want to just draw with Japanese inks and brushes instead. Just more sketch dumping. Thanks for looking!
Like I said, I'll be posting at least once every other day, starting with the most recent stuff tomorrow!! Thanks for looking!
