    Macaroni and cheese.. Now updated every 3 years.

    Welp, I thought I'd pony up and throw out some of the crap I've been doodling in my sketch book.. oddly enough during studio classes at school, while not actually doing studio work. Anyways, now I can stop feeling completely useless and actually have somewhere to point would-be challengers for the next local group Tdome challenge. Let the inanity begin!

    Here's a little heavy power armor guy.. Christ will you ever be seeing a lot of these..

    Macaroni and cheese.. Now updated every 3 years.

    A few random sketches in preparation for a larger project later on.. wow, what a surprise, more power suits!

    A human spaceship.. this is a bit old though, noticing a theme?

    Some hyperdrive engine concepts, for said spaceship..

    And lastly.. a portrait of myself as some sort of robotic man from the future! This is a personal shout-out to anyone from Pratt who had to do La Padula's 6 self portrait assignment. It was done a good... 5 years ago? Holy God I'm old..

    Macaroni and cheese.. Now updated every 3 years.

    And this concludes my first attempt at maintaining a sketchbook thread! Hopefully this interweb will not eat me alive and I'll keep the bloody thing updated. Until the next episode, feel free to proverbially rip these things to shreads, and tell me your thoughts.. I can take it.. besides, a good cry never hurt anyone.

    I lied.. I found more..

    A drawing I did a crazy long time ago and keep coming back to now and again.. maybe in 7 years it will be somewhere close to being finished.

    A very untextured alien, and his power armor, done before I had really flushed out his proportions. If anyone knows how in the hell I should go about giving him a less milky soft appearance, I'd greatly appreciate it.. I'm a lousy texture drawer.

    Lastly.. two diametrically opposed themes, 2 politicos from a roman/fantasy storyline I have, and a dropship pilot. I know her face looks like lumpy clay.. I can't draw women to save my life.

    Thank you so very much gents! Thanks for the positive feedback, especially from you Flex, I have great admiration for your work and really appreciate your approval.

    I'll be posting again soon, I have some homework to finish before that though... which will probably consitute some of my next post

    Thanks Sikkness! Don't let me inspire you too much, you'd be eating squirrel and doing black tar heroin by the end of the week if you did.

    Here's a very blunt plane, ala Scott Robertson, and lo and behold I did it for his class. I apologize to all the Industrial Design guys out there, I've no ID training and this is my first real attempt at hardcore ID drawing. However to any illustrator who want's some fantastic instruction, get his Gnomon DVD's or (for Art Center kids) take his class.. he's phenomenal.

    Wow!

    Top knotch design technique there, Helium! Lovin the alien characters. And those spaceships...I have always really been fond of the organic shape approach to starship design, seems like a logical choice for advanced sentient life to mimic nature for it's functionality. That crustacean layered shell look is smokin'~! It's a neat contrast to the human tendancy for straight lines and boxes.

    And you are in Scott Robertson's Art Center class? Lucky Bastard! A coworker just showed me his website for the first time last Friday! Amazing, you will be even MORE genius-like after he's done with ya!

    I'm very impressed and I'll be keeping my eye on this thread for cool new updates. Keep em comin'!!

    Cheers and welcome!!~~~JadeDragon

    Nice concepts man. Would you say you have any influences for the mech stuff? I've been trying to improve my mech drawing for some time. I think I've been learning a lot just by looking at spinefinger's stuff (and shirow of course). Hmm as for advice for alien texture, look at some super closeups of weird bugs for ref. They have excellent textures indeed. I feel your pain with the ID class. I'm an illustrator myself taking my first ID class this semester. Keep up the sketchbook!
