Steph's Brain Farts (NSFW): 11/17 - Creatures and CTN
Alright, I will make every attempt to keep this as "daily" as possible. I need to sketch more - I realized at the SF Workshop just how rusty I've become since graduating. Blah!
Anyway, my opening doodle was about 10 minutes of sketching, a half hour in Photoshop. One of my ratties has been battling a fierce abcess for the last 2 weeks and this just sort of sputtered onto the page.
I didn't use reference for this one (again... bad me!) and I sketched her with Col-erase pencils and those spiffy pens everyone got at the Japanese stationary store. Those pens are awesome!
See you guys tomorrow... after Blueberry's next visit to the vet. Hopefully.

The Following User Says Thank You to Steph Laberis For This Useful Post:
Good to see you starting one of these too, Steph. Another Daily Sketchbook for me to keep an eye on!
I'd say the sketch is cute, but you're probably sick of that adjective being applied to your drawings.
Wish Blueberry good luck for me!
Thanks for the welcome It awesome to be joining up, since I now have so many names and faces to associate with these sketchbooks.
Saying that my work is cute is probably a fair assessment, what can I say? You guys will probably find that my sketches jump from cute to angsty to cute to depressing to cute. ...and no, I'm not bipolar. Just fickle.
And thanks for the kind words about Blueberry. I just want to get rid of the stress of her illness, for both of our sakes.
without ref ?! thats wow looks cool N sweet :>
what kinda pens are these from japanese store? can u may scan them or take a photo ? really like to see them
calls the dentist

heya Stephanie, It was nice meeting you at the workshop Thanks for the invite to roll with you guys on the last day, I would have gone if I had my hotel arrangements squared away buy then
Nice work on your site! That's great that you're working for Hasbro, it's nice to have alla' these professionals with daily sketch books. I like the rat, keep posting!
go team insect battle x infinity ... see I told you you wouldn't get banned... esp. after reading the original thread.
*Blows dust off of her sketchbook*
Ok, here we go...
Sideshowbob: Thanks much! The pens are called Hi-tech C's and Pilot puts 'em out. I'm going to harrass my friend in SF to pick me up some more, those are like... liquid pencil...
Red_Rook: Danke schoen! Vielen Dank! Aber... hast du ein Kartoffel? Ich moechte kein Pomme Frite, Ich moechte Kartoffel Puree.
Steak: Hey you! Ditto - 'twas awesome to meet you at the workshop too.
I tried my best to kidnap you on the last day, but I guess you had your priorities, huh? Thanks for the coment about my site, too. I'm not working full time for Hasbro anymore, just freelance... so does that mean I'm not a pro anymore? And yes yes, you were right. I wasn't banned... instead I became a part of a living legend on CA. Funny how life works that way sometimes...
OK! Sketches! Here's a handful of my sketches on my "Road to a Raven". I basically revamped one of my favorite characters for the "USA vs the World TD" and looked up some Haida references.
Kinda congested, I know. But I wanted to play with some face and beak designs.
The pretty but confusing sketch. I'm kinda proud of how the lineart looks but I really botched the composition of the head and neck.
Pardon the watermarks, I know no one here would think of stealing art. I figured I'd post the colored version to show the progression and how I tried to let complimentary colors polish the turd of my head and neck issue. I'm TOTALLY open for crits on this, since I am dying to rework this into a portfolio piece.
That's it for now, more to come soon.
After a rousing commentary on those Raven sketches (joking guys, joking) I'ma gonna shoot myself in the foot and show you an Illustrator doodle.
...I know this, ahem, "style" of work doesn't fly well here, but the areas I am looking for help with are pretty universal:
I am trying to get more comfortable with Illustrator - I realize that illustrators who are good with vector art are desirable in the freelance world right now, and although vector art isn't my firts choice in media (meaning: I don't think it's much fun) I'd rather have freelance work right now than not.
Any feedback would be swell and yes, this is an off-shoot of Insect Battle.
Loving the style on the second piece. Great action and wonderful color. Keep rollin'!!!!!
He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
That is awesome! Go Chibi League!
I hate working with vector graphics. I can't get them to do anything, so I'm pretty impressed.
Don't really have any crits, I love it. I want one of those hats!
What a great line quality here!
Why haven't you been posting for so long - wanna see some more of your great work!
Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint you can on it.
haha - the rat is damn nice!
Imageproof and Icey: Whoah, you found my hidden sketchbook! I was hoping I could lay low until I had new work to post but, you got me. Thank you very much for your crits and kind words.
Right now I only have some character sketches of a generic alien that I did for a logo, the rest of the stuff I've sketched lately is for work and I'm not allowed to show people.
I am working on a C.O.W., so expect to see more creepy bird sketches soon. Thanks for watching out for me guys
Alrighty, here's a litle something to show I'm not a total slacker.
First, these are sketches from a character design that a friend commissioned me to do for him film studio's logo. He wanted a "generic, Warner Bros-ish, big-eyed, devious alien with an anal probe".
So, that's that. The final was inked in Illustrator, I will post it once he integrates the character with his logo design.
Next, here's the original sketch for General Sutefu - Illustrator is so mice to use for clean-up! I also doodled some Scorpion buddies, since every soldeir in the Scorpion Squad is issued one, with which to do as they please. Most soldiers find useful things to do and bond with their Scorps, but there are some who just outright abuse the poor five-eyed marshmallows.
Ok, off I go for a quick nap and maybe work on my C.O.W.
Really adorable stuff. I espeially like your Feb10th piece at the bottom, looks awesome. And those aliens! Really awesome creativity.
Keep the posts flowing!
Only the heart intrinsically noble can succeed...
