Well, I'm pretty new here and I 've been just watching everyone elses art work so I figured I'd better post something. I just recently picked up the pencil so I'm alittle rusty. I hope to get as good as you guys so any tips or tricks of the trade would be greatly appreciated. Thnx
i like the design and proportions on that first guy. i think he could use a bigger(fatter) sword tho. nice job
Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe it can achieve.
Hey Sikkness! Thanks yo! Yeah, took a look at that sword and it does look abit off on the skinny side. I think the problem is the perception. It's supposed to be in an angle but instead it just looks skinny. I need to work on my depth and shading. I saw your drawings and they look awsome! Like the Gandalf! Your anatomy studies look great.
Okay, well here's some more stuff for c&c. Most of these are for a game that I'm helping out for as the concept guy.
oldie but goodie, the one and only skeletor! yeeaah baby!
bad hair day
Been awhile since I've posted anything here.
Here's some old stuff and some new. I've been learning how to tattoo and just decided to got to AAU in San Francisco this spring.
Anyways, here they are.
some random sketches. the two on the right are from ref. not that you can't already tell.
another buff dude.
this one was for an actual client. not sure what happened to it.
same thing. she had a thing for monkeys.
a tattoo design for a friend. WIP
just messing around with some watercolor and color pencils.
some of these I've already posted up. they were for a indie game dev. nothing happend
the same client with the monkey infatuation
baby dragon. duh...
this was my first attempt at digital painting. i know, it sucks. that's why i'm planning to go to school. I got a lot to work on.
any c&c would be greatly appreciated.
Nice work you have here Imp, seems like you have a good handle on foreshortening. I like the pencil sketch of the scared guy, Skeletor too. The lion tattoo is really nice, as is the digital painting. If I can give a crit, the top of the shoulder connecting the arm is a little off, but i'm sure you can fix that. Layers! Goodluck with school too. Cheers!
zord- thnx man. i'm not sure what foreshortening is but i'm glad that i have it. I see what you mean about the girl's shoulder.
I though something didn't look right when I was at the end of this practice. I'll revisit this and make the changes.
well, here's more tattoo designs.
this is the first draft of an add on tattoo. the middle tribal is not mine.
The mermaids are what I'm trying to add. kind of boring but the guy likes it better then the second draft.
second draft for the tattoo. not real happy with this one either. hoping to get some suggestions from you guys
I was planning to make the female's bottom half an octopus.

I need to sketch more often.
This is from a photo ref from the web. I know I'm off on some stuff here.
That's why I need to sketch more...
A Frazetta. One of my favorite artist.
Another one from a ref. Again, I can see some crap that I need to work on.
a creature concept. I call him buckey
The sketches you created with reference, the last few, specially the female characters are awesome.
From the filename I see you used Frazetta as ref, hes awesome.
Anyway, using reference is a good thing, just try to use it more as inspiration.
Just keep on sketching!
The forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree.
Here's a first digital sketch that I'm working on. It's based off of Carlos Cabrera's tutorial. Thnx dude! Damn I need a lot of work on this.
those are nice, that little monster is interesting too
Hyp- thanks dude. frazetta's one of my heroes.
styler- I checked out your sketches also. You're a busy guy!
more from today and some from the past.
Here's a digital color of one of the sketches above. Not done yet, since I'm not to happy with the negative space and the texture of the robot. Other things that bother me, like the balloon. I think it needs another branch to make it look more "stuck" like it should. Any C&C is very much needed and appreciated!
Been awhile since I've posted anything here. Real busy with school and trying to fill up my sketch book for this semester. Any way, here's some stuff that I've done for my analysis of form class here at AAU.
This was for a drapery study. The drawing got ruined a bit before I could put some fixatif on it. My camera sucks.
This was just today. Homework for the drapery study. I'm planning to redo this. Not to happy with some of the core-cast shadows. And I don't know about the comp.
Getting some head.
Torso cast study.
This was from a workshop. Didn't have enough time to finish this since I came in late.
I have other drawings in that sketchbook, but they're not worth the bandwidth. Well, I'll try to post more. Thanks for looking.
Hey man, keep these posts coming! That way we can see the progress/process. I'm liking the drapery studies, you seem to be grasping the form of cloth quite well. We need more studies of anatomy in here too, forms, hands, eyes, everything studies! Do it. Just keep posting and showing work man. Cheers.
awsome book. i love the comicness. those cast and sheet studies are awsome... graphite? charcoal? how big are they? keep up the hard work and practice. great stuff, keep it up.
OBX - drawing a.d.d.
The art of Joel Hladky
-Fear is the enemy of Imagination - Andrew Jones-
thnx dude. i can't seem to get myself out of my sb and post them up as often as i'd like. but mostly it's because i'm too lazy to scan them.
their charcoal. mostly vine. some compressed with a 4b charcoal pencile for refin. 18x24 on charcoal paper.
here's some for zord. lot's of anatomy and some other crap. Mostly face studies. Posted oldest to newest.
Here's more charcoal. 18x24
these are on newsprint
my digital camera sucks ass!
Hi there, first off, thank you for commenting in my SB!
The drapery studies are beautiful! Your gestures are very well balanced, and the digital pieces are coming along nicely. I like your latest charcoal piece and the perspective of the room. Keep it up! I'll be keeping an eye on your on SB
Wow, are you in an atelier school or something? You're improving a lot, keep it up!
Sketchbook group! Omi-kun
Great characters, and thx for stopping by my sketchbook!
That clothe studie really show some skill, acctually FAR higher than the
rest of you stuff (wich Im also admire you know so thing bad! )
Do some more studies , and try to move it into your own work!
That will really make big improvements.
Thats only tips I acctually got, since your are pretty much Awsome on what
you doing man!, so keep it up! looking forward to see some updates!
Nice stuff you are doing. Ilike a lot the still lifes.
Though the shading ability you have don't show too much in the non ref stuff.
Something you can do to work that out is, when you draw from life or ref, try to find out why you see what you see. And when working from mind, try to imagine volumes and chose a source light and keep it till you finish (is easy to start shading and forget where the light comes from, to me at least ).
Find the why! Thats pretty much what I do
Keep posting and practicing!
man, I need to do more sketchs!
Thanks everyone for all your crits.
Here's a little of what I've been doing. I actually finished a whole sketchbook
during the last semester. I want to try for two in the fall. These are just
some that I think are good enough to show. The rest was just crap.
