    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    Right, I figure I'll improve a lot faster if I consistently draw at least a certain amount every day, at the moment I'm a natural slacker. So I guess I will start this off with some sketches I did in my sketchbook over the last 3 days of the workshop, and I'll try to post at least one page per day wherever possible.

    The blue band around my wrist will work as a reminder than I never draw enough!

    So, without further ado...

    3-minute marker sketch from life:

    10-minute marker and ink sketch from life:
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    5-minute marker sketch, no reference:
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    Attempted Marko-style (no initial sketching, just straight in with the anatomical lines), HB mechanical pencil:
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    Random sea-creature, vague inspiration from Clawful. No interesting design, but I still kinda like it. Markers and ink:

    2-minute pen sketch, from life:
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    Android-style scribbly base. I didn't know what it was gonna be until after about 10 minutes of random light lines and scribbles. Unfinished, I'm still working on picking out shapes:
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    That's all for now. In fact, those are the first images I've ever posted on ConceptArt.org ... I hope they're an OK starting point!

    Welcome to CA and the sketchbook thread, Paul!

    You've got an awesome start here, man. I really like your marker sketches and life drawings! I'll be checking back for more!

    I get first reply to reply to your first post! (eta: damn, too late) I think I saw most of these in SF, but good work as always There are some anatomy issues here and there, but it's definitely solid work. Just keep up with the figure drawing, and posting here and I'm sure you'll improve quickly.

    Great sketchbook mop! The zoidberg drawing rules, and I like the new pen sketches as well. Keep up the sketch book.

    Of all the postings here, I enjoy your marker renderings the best.

    I would say continue with this medium for a stint and reap the results.
    They remind me of some of Tiepelo's studies of his frescoes. His studies were
    masterful understandings of light and anatomy.. check em out..

    Eli: Thanks, I will!

    Foxy: Cheers dude, I'll give some more of those a shot if I'm not too tired tomorrow (3 hour drive up to Dundee, fun!). I think I might have just been lucky with that

    Kambei: Yeah, a lot of people I showed my sketchbook to in SF said the same. Thanks for the info, I will check that out

    Ok, here's all I really managed today... pencil scribbles inked with my new brush pen! I'm not really used to it but it turned out OK I guess. There are perspective errors aplenty, I'll see if I can fix those up in Photoshop when I colour it. Also I'm not quite sure how Protoss anatomy goes, so the hand/arm is a little weird... heh.

    Some felt pen and fineliner head studies I've been doodling today... first time I've tried this sort of thing. Most are from photo reference.

    Welp, I've failed abysmally to keep this up to date. Been too busy catching up on university work and doing art tests for contracts, to actually fill out my sketchbook!

    Here's a couple more pages..... apologies Laurel

    Felt the need for painting after Laurel pointed me in the direction of Ingres and Sargent... inspirational.
    I googled up a fairly interesting image, sketched it out on thick canvas-textured paper, then painted over with oils using 1 brush. This is my 3rd oil painting ever, in the world!

    Progression:

    Larger image of painting:
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    The actual size of this painting is about 10"x7", fairly small. Took about an hour to paint. Made me wanna do more

    I've done a few more oil paint sketches but haven't been able to photograph them yet. Will do soon...

    In the meantime, here's a few pages I've been doodling on today. The island is still very much WIP, the perspective is a little off, heh. That's what I get for not using a ruler or guidelines...

    Also the top view of the WW2/futuristic plane is still in progress. Trying to think how planes would have been developed if WW2 had never stopped... The other stuff is just random pencil scribblage.

    hey that oil painting looks great. i've never touched oils,just acrylics,and they were difficult enough. so good work on that.
    i enjoy your life drawing marker sketches the most. i said it already on the workshop-you can really tell who they are,even with so few lines. and the anatomy is spot on there. i think you should do more marker(and ink perhaps) sketches,rather than those pencil ones.personally i don't think they're as good.that protoss is cool too-like the inks,they really flow there.
    keep it up.

    and thus,i have spoken here.

    Great sketchbook, a nice range of different things. Those latest ww2 designs look top notch, clean and well thought out a design'ey. Also the following drawing impressed me, never thought of taking anatomy to that level with the eye! but makes it so much cooler. Your work generally makes me want to grab a marker. Did you practice alot with markers before you decided to be skilled with them?

    Keep posting

    IllustriousHarry: Thanks for the comment
    I haven't actually practised that much with markers, although I've had them quite a while I never got round to doing much with them until recently. A couple of years ago I was on Feng Zhu's site, and I love his style, so grabbed myself a couple of the pens to try and do stuff in a similar method... of course I couldn't match his quality so kinda gave up on them for a while. They're pretty easy to get the hang of, the only thing is when using the darker tones you've gotta be careful not to get a stroke "wrong" or it can ruin the image... with the really light greys it's ok, but I find it gets more difficult as you go darker.
    Fun for sketching though, I use them a lot now. Only downside is they're fairly expensive, but they're helluva cool

    And at risk of appearing lackadaisical:

    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    Just a couple of 10 minute pencil sketches I drew at 5am the other day... I had been awake for over 40 hours at the time, I think. No reference. I'll try to scan more stuff as soon as I get something decent to show...

    Hey Hexal, sounding fanboyish is fine by me

    Here's a minor update... a few of these things are unfinished, I'm just waiting for my Karismacolour (the European Prismacolor) pencils to come through on order so I can finish the inked ones up Coro-style (I wish)...

    I decided to ink those two fellows from before, so here's how they stand at the moment... still unfinished:

    A different incarnation of the "brave" guy:

    The inevitable 12-metre-high seagull:
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    And a weird little goblin dude I drew this afternoon. I want to model him up in high-poly 3d, but I don't really have the time at the moment, unfortunately...
    MoP's Leather-Bound Sketch Journal :: 24.05.06 :: New PS speedpaints!

    That's all for now, folks. Gimme a few days and, delivery permitting, I should have those inked/coloured ones finished with pencil and paint. I'm following Coro's sketchbook tutorial, because I love his style and results... I want my sketchbooks to be as impressive as his!

    One day... one day! *shakes fist*

    Hey, Yee Scotish Mop! Nice stuff, love the amount of control on the pen drawings, thats sweet. The paintings are very cool too, but my favourite is the 12 meter high seagull!

    Another one... also one I'd like to model in high-poly.
    Didn't know what the hell to do with the legs, so I left them as scribbles...
