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:
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:
Ball point pen sketch of a laday cop, fat little man, and some butterflies
Quick pencil study from reference (I enjoy drawing from life, but it is unusual for my sketches)
Ultramarines: super hero tech

Here are some are older ones too, just to get this thread going.
A cheesy dino-creature: I give you velveetasaurus...
crappy hodge podge of girls, ghosts, and nose-pickers - why do I like this?
gesture sketch and a dumb bunny (actually part of a game I play with friends and family: first person makes a weird scribble and second person turns it into a picture...)
Action studies for a game character...

Dude! you sketches totally suxor!! -jk u r da shizzle! erp. nvrmind.
Why was I expecting comments? I look at the other much more amazing sketches out there and I can totally understand no one having anything to say about this stuff here. Ah well. I did do some more sketchin' o'er the weekend, just because:
some costume studies:
a little moe detail:
some unreferenced practice... I need more practice.
a shading sketch:
sketches... not my best stuff, but there it is. different styles, different moods, whatevah.

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

hodgepodge of sketchiness...
Some strange stuff going on here... what is with this shading and perspective? not to mention some creative anatomy...
And lastly, a portrait study... no ref... I guess I really should use more ref...
don't be a stranger!

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):
