    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.

    Thanks! I didn't, I actually studied printmaking at a university near KC.

    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.
