    bye-bye bump

    Some pages probably from around the end of last year. Recently I've been doing some specific work, whereas this is exercise, keeping fit between ideas!

    Not sure if it sheds any light or is in any way instructive of my process, but it all starts out as a blue line sketch, which I trace off with onto standard tracing paper with a Staedtler pigment liner. I use the 005 nib, so drawing straight over the sketch would destroy the line when erasing- hence the tracing paper. I bin the blue lines though; the inked stuff is where I learn most.

    Anyway, for Mrs. Salaryman they look like the crazy doodles of a mad man, for me they're stuck down in an A4 sketchbook as ref for future ideas and finished pieces.

    Hope you guys find them of interest!

    Wow. Is your whole sketchbook filled with pages like this? That would be mind-boggling. . .Love how every little item on the page is a finished drawing. I assume you're doing these primarily from photo ref; the only crit I might offer would be to develop a little stronger expressions - a bunch of them have a little expression, in different ways, but it seems almost a . . . "leftover" from the original photo. I realize you're really doing these to increase your own "vocabulary," but it might help. . .Awesome work!

    Roughs

    Hi! - Don't suppose you have the roughs? I would quite like to see your thought process.

    Cheers

    thanks for the encouraging words guys!

    materials: as mentioned, blue lead pencil, then traced off using a Staedter 005 pigment liner onto standard tracing paper.

    Next stuff I do I'll keep hold of the roughs and show the process...

    Probably 10-15% of my book is stuff like this, the rest is my concept work, 90% of which I can't show just yet: in production, pitch-work ( or unfortunately locked down because of court proceedings). Publishers are pretty strict when it comes to their 'property'.

    I guess I should try out more expressive stuff, though professionally I'm called on to do straight ups, maybe a full front and occasionally a back view, where too much expression can alter how the character is read, at least in my experience...

    saw the pic you did in the heavy armor thread and had to come looking to see if you had a sketchbook. really killer stuff youre doing.
    You have a really keen sense of mass and anatomy which, combined with your linework style, is as cool as the underside of a pillow on a hot summer day
