    something new in N-Mel's sketchbook? - updated October 18th

    I wish. It has been a while since I updated this. but I do get in an occasional DSG...

    Latest DSG entry:
    something new in N-Mel's sketchbook? - updated October 18th

    So here it is. My Conceptart.org sketchbook. I try to sketch a li'l su'm almost every day, so I ought to be able to share it wit y'all here. For those of you who have not seen my website, I am currently employed as a game designer (and I have done game art for over 10 years). Sometimes I get to missing my crazy sketchy artist roots and I have to put pencil to paper. I like to sketch. I love the DSGs.

    Am I any good an artist? That is a very subjective question, and I'll let you be the judge. Could I be a better artist? I know that there is always room for improvement. So if ya gots some crits - let me have 'em.

    For my inaugural sketchbook post I give you the following:

    Quick pencil study from reference (I enjoy drawing from life, but it is unusual for my sketches)

    Small creatures

    purb36: Thanks man, I think I will post more, and thanks again.

    James the Frozen Valley: Thanks! you think so? sometimes I forget to like my stuff, but other days... Dazzam! I geek out. I guess I must be bipolar.


    So... here is more stuff... kind on a fantasy kick for a bit.

    All of these were drawn kind of small, like no more than 3 inches high apiece.

    I havent' earned the right to critique just yet so I'll offer a little praise instead...

    I like your style, you seemt to have a good understanding of anatomy and proportion and you have good lines

    Keep it up

    See you on the DSG

    Help your fellow artists get better.. Post a critique today!!!

    Well, it could be better but it is still 10000x better than anything I have ever done. I hate myself, feel good now?

    You could try drawing backgrounds and other things that are out of the norm for you (machinery, water, animals, etc).

    Fun with Ink

    Charcoal Artist: Thanks for the comments. I appreciate it. (maybe I should do more than line sketches...) And I really like your posts in the DSG too.

    NobodyYouWouldKnow: No, I don't feel better. Why would you saying that you hate yourself help anyone feel better? I saw your stuff in your sketchbook, and I think it shows a lot of promise. You have improved a lot too. I look at what I was drawing 10 years ago, and I think I have actually gotten worse. I don't practice enough. I don't do backgrounds and machines and water and animals enough. I will try, because it is good advice.

    Meanwhile, here is some non-pencil sketches (I like to sketch with ink. it means I can't erase and it forces me to try different styles):
