Midnight's Sketchbook *updated 22nd February*
Please scroll to end for latest pics!
Try as I might, I'm certain this isn't going to be a 'daily' thing, but I'll add to it when I have something new to show you all. Mostly, this stuff will be a collection of loose sketches and concepts.
This is quite an old piece, which I did while playing a game of Monopoly:
This is what happens when someone who's only ever used pencils and digital media gets his hands on an inking pen, with no idea how to use it and no idea what he's going to do until it's practically finished (I *really* should have made a pencil sketch first, but there you go...)!
I had a spare 10 minutes, I was bored, and I had a book about the English Civil War handy. Hence:
Everyone loves really old, random sketchings!
A warm-up before I went to life drawing:
A piece done at life drawing:
Another one done while bored, but I didn't have anything to hand this time:
More random goodness!
For some reason, this one was great fun to do:
Finally, the concept for the pic I'm working on at the moment:
I hope you like them!

Another collection of random scribbles!

Heh, one more rapid sketch here - anyone ever play Ultima VII: The Black Gate? One of my favourite game villains of all time:
the first one of the solider is great. lots of good stuff there w/ the face and shading! your anatomy studies are too focused on outlines and not enough on form...work general shapes and try to fine tune the image over time.
keep it up
your last 'sketch' is the best of all your posts because you probably did it without being too tight in that you 'rushed' it. i'd work more with gestures and try to get looser, hold your pencil nearer to the eraser and let the form flow rather than be rigid.
nice begining to your sketchbook I think you should ink some more things, the demon is looking good. Keep posting more
Choose your best piece and post that instead.
Quality is better than quantity, always.
Yeah. some of your pieces dont reflect the potential you see in others. I like yer hands.
ApolloNuevo - yeah, form is something I'm working on right now
Gregory Wohlwend - that was probably the fastest one I ever did! I'm not inclined towards looseness, but, again it's something I'm trying to work on (sod's law, though - every loose thing since has been *awful*!).
Sems - I'm working more with pencil right now, but there should be some more inked works before too long!
goosehole - pruning the list of 'to be put up' pics right now...
Pixeldragoon - thanks. Hands have been a real pain for a while, so it's good to know I'm getting somewhere!
Anyway, I'll put up a few more pics:
Got to soften those lines!
Next time... possibly something other than heads!
yupsy.. ull get somewhere
try to stay loose.. don't worry about your tecnique..
care about how to show what
wi_2 - thanks for the encouragement!
Alright then, here're a couple of sketches done from ref -
To finish, a ninja. Yes, I know the thumbnail bears little relation to the sketch
Well, I've been messing around with inks lately, and have absolutely nothing of any value to post with them
I've also been working on getting some more movement in my figures (and I *will*, at some point, work on a complete pencil *drawing*, as opposed to more sketches... ):
Hmm - the more I look at that battlemage, the more obscene his gesture becomes...
Hey midnight, keep going with the sketching. Your stuff is starting to improve anatomically, let's see some more dynamic stuff !
It's been too long without any updates... here we go, then:
Ah well, at least the figures are loosening up a bit!
nice beginnings here, Just keep it up and you will progress fast.
A couple to show - I've been working mainly on anatomy and movement:
Portraits are always fun!
