    Matt Smith's sketch book. Resurrected from the Dead - 6/14

    My old sketch book thread is lost in months and months of not posting and all of my old sketches are lost due to bad web hosting. So I decided to start a new one. Today I'll just post some work that I have done in class this semester. I am going to try to keep this updated alot more often now. Thanks for taking a look and any comments are appreciated.

    good lookin works especially what I'm guessing is an SP, I'll crit your old cowboy fella on the feel of the drapery it looks too random like you just through some shades in there. The volumes on the woman with the ball are great excellent shading ecept on her little finger where it looks like she's got another finger in the shadow

    that's it I really do like your stuff, reminds me how much I need to get back into loose materials.

    I have been doing a horrible job keeping this updated. Here is a self portrait I just finished in painter, looks kinda dorky, likeness is ok. I have been in the dumps for months about my digital art, so I'm going to try to get digital sketches in between school work and what not to improve. I have been drawing a ton and will try to post them later.

    Hi Matt!

    great to see a sketchbook from you, looking forward to follow it !

    great art in here, but somehow the faces doesnt look right... i think they are skewed or have the same face just with different surroundings...

    maybe try to add some more face variations?

    just thoughts...

    cheers !

    Hey Matt, you should update a little bit more often I think, or the paint troll will come and eat your soft parts.

    No, just kidding, there's no paint troll.. Good stuff in here, your portraits are great, alot stronger then your digital stuff I think.

    Let's see more!

    Thanks for the comments guys much appreciated.

    Huricane, the skewdness might be due to bad reproduction of the paintings, I shot them with my camera and had to readjust them in PS using the skew tool. If the digital one looks skewed, that might be because I just shot a pic of myself upclose randomly and the camera distorts, so it was a bad ref, my face did look long in the pic. The faces are the way thye are due to where I was standing in class, if thats what you meant by face variations?

    Olsen I am really scared of the paint troll, I dont want him to eat my wiener, so here are some more sketches I did a few weeks ago.


    These first ones are just some gesture poses I did out of my head.

    These sketches are from a visual devolpment class where we are doing the wizard of oz as a sci fi and these are sketches of the witch.

    Cool stuff

    I could use some advice from you! (No really, come visit me, my thread is lonely) I do suggest however, that you refine the self portrait. Then maybe post a picture of yourslef next to it. You get the idea. Also, I'm a big fan of the old man charcoal drawing. How many years have you been doing this?

    Love the sketches of the witch, especially the profile of the skull. The master copies are nice too.

    Thanks for the comments againt guys.

    Sedig- I have been drawing ever since I was born, but to be more accurate I went through college once and got a degree in illustration, worked on my portfolio, to try to get in the game industry as a concept artist, realized I needed to improve more, so now I got to Laguna college of art and design and Watts Atelier. I have some Watts drawings I need to take pics of a post. The old man pic is a master copy of an ablrect durer piece.

    Bojee- Thanks for the nice comments.

    Here are some more sketches for a painting I am doing for my fanstay illustration class. I should hopefully have the real drawing finished by tomorrow.

    I wanted to create an arm like knightmare from SC but make it a sword instead of a big hand.

    Here is my composition, excpet on the real drawing I zoomed in more, got rid of the funky sword arm and decided to have normal arms and the hand in the air will be holding a sword the opposite way to add to the compositional flow.

    Here is a more finished sketch, this is my final version of my witch for class. By sunday I will have a full figure, prop, and background done. So I will probably update this again sunday night. I would have posted this with the rest but I havent posted anything here in a few days, so I couldnt wait. I am happy with this piece for the most part, I feel like I am getting some of my digital skills back, but there are things I still want to fix on it. I probably didnt go about starting it the best way.
