    Character Development: Fantasy and more...

    I spend way too much time doing art production and I dearly miss drawing for the sake of drawing. This is my sketch book journal to help me stay focused and continue to pursue my love for creation. Please make comments and critiques and feel free to share. Thanks

    Working on female form with an emphasis on the torso. It's tough getting it to look right during action poses. I did a sequence to help me see my progression. Granted I don't have a lot of time to draw, but I get in what I can. Overall process around an hour and half to two hours.

    Fun 20 minute sketch time!
    Just your typical horror scene with lurking monster
    . The focus here was to get the feeling of terror on our character and do so quickly.

    Portrait and Working with Tonal Values:
    My D&D character Eric the Cleric ponders his devotion to his diety Pelor. I'm looking for a good process how to take a basic pencil sketch and turn it into a digital painting with grey values.

    Viking Shadow Light Study: After reading Glenn Vilppu's "Drawing Manual" I decided to bring out the grey tone markers. I wanted to work on my light and shadow, as well as building my character with constructive and gestural drawing techniques. It's the quickest way outside of Photoshop to build up tones and I get to see if my studies are progressing.

    Hi metalmullet, welcome to CA.org!

    I like these sketches and the mood they conjure - definitely Middle Ages and an interesting style. Eric the Cleric is a funny name. Keep up the good work!

    Hey Thanks,

    I've been working in greyscale so I can understand light and shadow better. The drawing portion has been about starting with a good gesture pose and building up the figure with correct proportions and perspective. The costume I chose is from the "Osprey Men at Arms" Series on Vikings so as to ad some historical authenticity. Currently I'm checking out tutorials on how to build a good design with grey tone using Photoshop. Any advice where to start?

    Thanks!

    Another work in progress. Using my new Cintiq and keeping it simple with just greytone.
