Keepiru's Sketchbook: For a good time, scroll down...reeew
Seeing as how I just finished school and a new year is here, I thought I'd scrap the old skechbook thread and start fresh (Thanks to all who commented!). Anyway, as always I welcome critique and criticism, and I hope all of you guys get crunk and have a great new year!
My Resoloutions...Draw more, post more, find a job!
And some figure drawings from my class. I tried drawing on all sorts of stuff,( cut up matboard and tracing paper, etc etc) but towards the end of class I fell in love with this cheap brown craft paper. It gets really wrinked and tears very easily, but I thought it was the perfect tone and the right price ($ 0.30/yd.) .These are very large (most are around four feet), so I had to take photos of them. Lighting situations were not ideal, so sorry they are sort of crappy ^_^!

hey Kerry! whoa, these pages are really hitting the mark. That creature head on the last one is great. It's good to have deadlines, but some of the best work comes when all of the pressure is gone... These look alot more realistic than you others, but still toonish which is cool. It's always awesome when someone can merge the two, but don't let that stop you from going either way.
Man, those figures are great too. She must have loved having you in there, I can't tell if some of those are marker of charcoal?
Hope you had a good NewYears

I hope everyone had a SWEET time in San Fransciso, I wish I could have gone!
Ian: Thanks for the kind words. Im going to get more figures up soon.
Kemps-Tron: Thanks, I feel like this huge burden has been lifted from me! I definately have more time to draw, and I finally accepted the fact that I dont really work so well under pressure, which means I need to cut back on the procrastination! Ive got a few cheesy freelance jobs now, but money is money, and Ive got some energy to be creative again ^_^! I want to know how things went in SF, Im not sure when youre getting back, but be expecting a phone call sometime...
GuggenJoel: Hey thanks! Im still waiting for you to make it up to Kennesaw lol...maybe on your way back to Rome sometime? Hope alls well and that you had a kickass time in the SF. I want to hear all about it! Im so jealous of you ALL!
Anyway, small update from the sketchbook, Ive been having a little bit of trouble with the ol' scanner lately, but I will be posting more soon.
Not so sure whats going on with the head at the right, but whatever
Some doodles from a story I'm working on about a girl who leads migrations
Anyway, thanks for the repliez again! More updates soon!

these are really good, but some of your characters eyes look anime like. you had to buy your own drawing materials?

I especially like your facial expressions. Those are a lot of fun to look at.

Mengde: Thanks. I used to be really into anime and draw it all the time, and I still really love some of it, so I'm not sure that the influence will ever totally disappear from my drawings. Im not sure that I want it too, either! Anyway, to answer your question, unfortunately yes, when you go to college you have to pay for freakin everything, hence the brokeness ^_^!
AdamBlack: Thanks a bunch, I'm not too great at drawing crazy action poses, so I think I try to make faces say a lot. That warms my heart! I went to your site too, your drawings are awesome (especially the ship!)
Steak: Thanks, I can't wait to hear about it. Alas, I am having to live with the folks in Kennesaw at the moment until I accumulate some dollas, but I will be in Athens next weekend for my birthday, and we should definately meet for a drink while I'm there. I saw Gabriel snapped a few candid steak-shots, it looked like you guys had a great time.
Anyhooo, another update. Kind of shitty today. Somedays you have it and somedays not, and today was totally an off day. So oh well.
I guess I always thought It would be sweet to ride an ostrich, even though they probably couldn't hold someone up. These are Rheas actually. But they dont have tufts on their heads, that was my own special addition.
A totally nonreferenced sketch, and it shows badly. I am by no means a photoshop expert, but I'm workin real hard at it...here I was trying to get a really narrow focus just on the figure (sort of like some of Sally Mann's photographs), but it didnt come off so well. Plus her hand is, like, way funky. Like I said, its a bit of an off day for me !

Okedoke, I found some old figure drawings from the Wed. Workshop that I thought I'd post. The guy sitting next to me asked me if I was a petophile, because I made the model look like a little boy (the heads are too big and I didnt get around to drawing his bits). Well, I dont think I am a petophile, but maybe its subconscious, because its a problem I seem to be having.

Wow, Keeps, I like what I see. Your style is very unique and I especially like the pix of the girl in the water with the birds flying around, it has a sence of depth and realism some how..yea that's my fav. But I like your fantasy drawings a whole lot, there's something about em...like a dream..or somethng. Very very cool original style. Keep on keepin on.
