hey all, hehe as you can plainly tell i'm new here, certainly hope to make this place a familiar nesting ground (so to speak) lol
dont mind the 'michael katchan' text on them. felt i should do so as im uploading to photobucket and linking.
anyway, to the sketches. here's some somewhat recent stuff that hasn't yet been uploaded to my personal site, up for criticism and comments etc
me messing around with copic markers (new found love) and my trusty artliners
a demons portrait done with a rather blunt (had no sharpener >_<) pencil. i think it was 3b.. i could be wrong. drawn while waiting in the long line for the midnight screening of episode III, no less
more a WIP than a sketch, now, a copic colored artliner pic here
3 minute fun with a pen lol
artliner and a whiteboard marker here as i recall... i started to get quite sloppy at the legs and bottom. major focus was the body.
hope you enjoy 'em, guys
What i love about your sketches (appart from the sexy goar), your hands, they look very natural especialy with that wip.
But dam man that deamon head kicks monkey ass.
I know you got more of this stuff around that would be cool to see. so post some more here.
oh and welcome to conceptart.
I really like how this seems exaggerated and still very controlled. First page is my personal favourite. Really love that robot and the figure in the bottom left.
Post more, please!
Thanks nova and cookie
here are two more sketches for you:
this page was all artliner again (i have a thing for those pens. no pencils), an antichrist concept, dark shadow-like figure and a wooden/mechanical crocodile.. thing.
Was listening to Jerk at one point whilest on the plane from Heathrow, London, to Hong Kong, and the lyrics inspired me to dish this guy out with the only pen i had with me at the time, some random blue inked biro.
good penetrations: and nice colouring tech.
Wow man, I really like your stuff. The color WIP on your first posted pic and the last green one are my favs. Like someone said previously, i love the way you draw hands which are, personally, the hardest part for me right now. Keep up the posting I wanna see more!
This stuff is amazing. It reminds me that I need to keep my own style. It's astounding how people can imagine this kind of stuff.

I agree with alti, those hands are really well done! They convey a lot of emotions and feelings.
thanks on the comments, guys glad you're enjoying them, and yeah, im trying to maintain my own personal style with all that i do, although it is constantly evolving and changing.
here are some more n_n
just playing with colors and minimal use of linework as opposed to the copic markers. certainly fun to skrew around with
here's a copic piece that i did the other day and its definitely more a WIP than anything, any constructive thoughts on where to take this to next would be greatly appreciated, i'd love to finish this off and call it done - but i figure i could use all of your helpfull thoughts first =)
You rock, great imagination.
I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more.
Nice stuff michael, I really dig these drawings. You've got a unique style going on here. Post 'em if ya got'em!
I don't pray because I don't want God to know where I'm at.
dude, awesome works, i want to see more of it.
idio is this so idio is not that
this is amazing stuff, everything is so delightfully twisted. your characters are like a train wreck. great great work. have you ever tried playing with color discordance? i just got into it and i gotta tell you that it can be used so effectively, especially ontop of things as sharp as your stuff, its subtle but really effective, it confuses the rods and cones in your eyes into believing something else is really there, it can be used subtley or over the top. i'd be more than happy to expand if you would like to know a littel more. but my post is getting embarrasingly long
thanks on that comment, lostradamus =D i might have to look into that it certainly sounds intriguing to say the least *nods*
figured id post the two pics i recently added into the sketch trade thread as my contributions, my personal character the Fixer Upper and my take on Scubasteves Hellhound
Out of all of those I have to say the demon head sketch is my absolute fave the shading is great (and who needs a sharp pencil anyways )
damn fine pieces!! I love this style - it's like what happens when Pink Floyd and Tool go off into a shadowy corner and have bastard children. Show more!!
ty a bunch on the nice comment there on my work and hands, bro, means a lot as i hold loads of respect for your shait as well
chapter 37 just popped out for raster so yeah guys you should go check it out, some great stuff goes out over there - very proud to be a part of it
hm it was just released (the latest chapter) and one of my submissions isnt working for me but the second is, so here is salad
you've got some sick style! I'm really amazed. I love your dirty marker stuff, but the last grey and red thingy with the cleen shading is my favourite. I love those wings. Oh and the hellhound is great too. Such inspiring stuff here, really good.
please keep posting,
