Remembered that there was this sketchbook forum, so I'm putting the thread I started in sketches here. Let me know what you guys think. Here's the previous ones with a new one:

I missed yesterday, so here's a mega post.
Based on an electron image of an ant's head
really like ur linework.. its pen ?!
nice monkee 2.. "zirkus affe" sounds german :>
are u german ? .. O_o
nice hair studies.. i need to some of them 2 soon >_<
I dig the medusa chick, the inks on the profile are really solid. Ant's head is cool too, maybe go in with some white acrylic to pull some highlights and details in, and push the shadows to give it some contrast. There's some good tension and movement in your earlier sketches too. Keep posting!
sideshowbob- Most of it is pen, but I do also enjoy using a brush for inking. Zirkus Affe is german for Circus Monkey. I'm not german, but I speak a little.
artkitty- Yeah, I would like to bring some highlights out, maybe even do a series based on closeups of insects.
Well, I've had a busy day, so I didn't really get a chance to sketch today. I know, I know. Here's some sketches for a tshirt I'm doing. It's for a local coffee place, and it's going to end up a two color job. Nothing spectacular.
I think the pic you are doing for the shirt is nice but... its missing something. It took me a while to figure out what it was but I think it might be better if she had ears... obviously one would be covered by hair, but the other one should have the hair brushed behind (maybe) another thing is her right leg seems a little ... I dunno small. very nice other than that... I like the hand gestures
bah just noticed something else when the lip of the cup goes behind her it doesnt really come out right on the other side... a little skewed, but then hell it is just a sketch so....
I really like the simplicity and efficiency of your line work.
You've got some cool sketches... as for some critiques on the coffee shop shirt, everything Thalas said plus she doesn't seem to be seated on the bottom of the bowl... looks like she's floating or propped up. Also, her right leg and arm seem a little too long to me... but, it's a qork in progress, and I have no idea what girls in the 50's looked like so, that's just my 2 cents.
Keep it up, man!
I enjoyed the medusa sketch... as for the woman in the cup I liked as well, though I agree that she doesnt seem to be placed at the bottom of the cup, I also think that her right hand should be placed inside the cup or either her right elbow should be placed inward... that way her arm looks rested on the edge of the cup rather then floating...
just my opinion...
I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected, enough to step aside and, weep like a widow, to feel inspired, to fathom the power, to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral, to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human...
hmmm daily sketches? whats up no weekend stuff?
Been playing around in Photoshop recently, making some artsy desktops.
Bunch of scans of a book layered with a painting
The face is Washington's portrait from a dollar bill
Weird looking cathedral/angelic thing
An early version of an image I posted in the sketches forum
Lately I've been busy with designing a website for a movie I'm working on, so it's tough finding time to sketch some stuff not related to the project/post images.
Heres some ideas for nasty critters
And a quick pencil of some guy with a gun
Some basic brushstrokes and grey value added
like the face from the gun guy
and the strange pimple bug in the middle
what movie ur doing ? real movie or cg or animated ? O_o
keep it up !
Thanks! The movie I'm working on is an animation. The animation part is almost done, overall about 60% done; the website will be up in a few days with a trailer. As for the title, it's Charles Bronson Versus Tony Danza. It's an... interesting little animation.
Here's some early storyboard stuff done up in a comic format. Yeah, yeah, it's in MS Paint. Started out as just goofing off.
Here are the two stars, hiding in the shadows. I'll probably be able to post more stuff from it once the sites up.
awsome new stuff, and cant wait to see the movie...
and btw, why charles bronson and why tony danza?... and why versus
Well, trying to keep up with sketchs. Here's some new stuff mixed in with some of my older stuff.
A quick color sketch
A pic of Ningauble, a character from the Grey Mouser and Fafhrd by Fritz Leiber
Yeah...some old guy and a faceless swallower of souls...
Literal interpretation of Clockwork Orange
Technical Drawing of a skull
Some cyborg fighter wearing tights (CYBER tights!)
Of course you gotta have a drunk robot
And some weird guy
Thanks! Let me know what you think.
Oh damn, it took me a long time to post some more stuff.
This first one is a coloring of a previous entry
Panel sketch for something top secret
Playing around with it...
Studies of mechanincal parts and engines
Started out as a random ink smear, then it turned into a ghoul
Study of a halloween mask, one of those ones thats really creepy 'cause it's just a plain white mask
And a bunch of weirdos
Hopefully I'll not be slacking off on the posting again, Vishnu willing. And let me know any comments you have!
love your technique mate!
