0kelvin's Cleverly Named Sketchbook (Now with nude pictures of YOU!)
I finally got a bunch of the sketches I did in San Francisco scanned, so I thought I'd start a sketchbook to post them. Hopefully it will keep me motivated to keep on drawing as well. Plus, all the cool kids are doing it.
I drew this one on the plane. I don't know what it is, but it looks like an illustration out of a prehistoric Charlotte's Web.
The roomies and I had a mini-Thunderdome in our room the first night. The topic was The Elusive North-Floridian Skunk Ape. I think ChromaticCodex won, for the sole fact that his had a magic wand.
Wow, I can't believe I drew his hand on backwards. That's downright embarassing.
We then headed over to the Galleria where we had a few more Thunderdomes. The first was Robot Buddha. Mine was an Enlightenment vending machine.
And then we did Zombie Jesus. I drew him cartoony because it's less blasphemous that way. I think I read that somewhere. Probably the Bible.
It's a guy in a tree. I'm not too happy with it, but my goal was to draw something that took up the entire page, and I did just that.
I drew the head of this guy and was planning on giving him long flowing regal robes, but then I realised how incredibly cliche he was going to look so I just went in the completely opposite direction and gave him this bent over naked body with screwed up anatomy. Much creepier, if you ask me.
I mostly just love trying to imagine how this guy would sound when he talks.
Another Thunderdome we did. The topic for this one was Fabulously Gay Santa. The tall handsome lad is Mrs. Claus.
Canadian cyclops, perhaps?
Hehehe. This was originally a drawing of Pac-Man but apparently somebody got a hold of my sketchbook and added the -LEY. I think they're trying to imply Jason Manley has a big smile or something.
A creature that I just realised must have been subconsciously inspired by the chairs in the Triton lobby.
Drawn just minutes before the infamous Insect Battle extravaganza started.
This is a sketch for my Angel Thunderdome entry. Unfortunately that's as far as it got.
This is a life drawing of three or four people in one done on the last night there.
New sketches coming soon! Hopefully!

yo man, good stuff. But you seem to have an outline over everything you do. But anyways good work, keep it up.

Here are a couple things I've done since I got back.
I did this right after I got home to try out a few of the many things I picked up at the workshop. I need some practice with many of the techniques, but can definitely see them helping. I also used shapes and value to block it in rather than lines, which is something I need to do more often.
I sketched this while watching some Anchorman special features. I touched it up in Photoshop, mainly due to my scanner having a personal vendetta against pencils.

Just some more practice painting. I like eyes. This was done from reference.
Just some creature thumbnails. I haven't modelled anything in a while and I'm trying to come up with a creature to model and texture for my portfolio. Nothing here really jumps out at me, but I'm getting some vague ideas of the direction I want to go.

Maybe I should tell people I hate drawing. That would get me some replies.
Here are a few very quick digital sketches.
I liked one of those thumbnails after all. I'm going to do some more sketches of variations this guy and if I come up with something I like I'll model him in Maya.
Here was another idea I had for a creature to model. It got a little cliche for my tastes so I dropped the idea. I might revisit it if I can come up with an original angle.

I don't know where this came from. I just started making shapes and doodling and then before I knew it this guy was sitting in front of me. Literally. I asked him to move out of the way so I could see the screen and he went and sat on my bed. I shyly asked if I could draw him. After I finished this picture, we made out for like half an hour. He tasted like fresh raspberries.
Dear Diary, I think I'm in love.

Dude, how did you make out with it if it has no mouth??
Hehe, seriously though, some cool stuff here. What's all this talk of modelling? Do you normally do a lot of 3d stuff? Post some up, yo!
Watch your proportions...in that last one, his near arm looks longer than his far one, and his far leg looks longer and thinner than his near one.
Keep on truckin'!

I haven't done much modelling in a while. Gotta get back into it. You can see a bunch of my 3D stuff on my website. Here in case you're too lazy to scroll all the way down to my sig. Texturing is mainly where I want to focus, but if I'm gonna texture something I might as well model it as well. Diversify!
Yeah, you're right about the proportions. Although his far leg only looks longer because he's dragging his foot. I think it might actually be shorter. You can't really tell because it gets lost in the shadow, though.
He does have a mouth, it's just not on his face.
I knew that story would get me a reply.

What's this? Something pretty in my sketchbook?! SHOCK AND CONTROVERSY!
Just working on my so often neglected figure study. I'm actually quite happy with it, so that can only mean one thing: I'm not good enough to notice all my mistakes yet!
I actually had fun with this, so hopefully that will motivate me to do it more often. I usually get bored so fast with figure studies.

I like the figure study you did, especially her face! And your wasp battles are way more finished than mine, I'm sure you have me beat. Can't wait to see your t-dome sketches!
Oh yeah, and Pac-Manley is awesome. So's the guy with machine gun eyes, that was crazy. Who did the guy with chainsaws for eyes, was that Alberto?
