    The @Sketchbook@ of Happiness (with eyes, and other sillyness)

    Just to introduce myself, im a 16 year old malaysian living in London. Like all of you, i love art. But only recently have i discovered concept art, and from then i was hooked. My favourite artists so far (still trying to find more) are Samwise Didier and the great John Howe.

    So it begins, my crappy sketchbook. Hopefully as i get goin on this journey of forcing myself to work and draw etc, i will slowly be enlightened by the criticisms and advice that i hope you guys can povide so that i may improve, hopefully. Wow, quite a lot of 'hopes' in one sentence. Anyways, ill post everything ive done in chronological order since June 2005, when i first laid my hands on the wacom tablet and entered the digital artworld. I will also work traditionally and post some pencil renders that i will be doing.

    hehe, my rendering of the Batman Begins guy. I really wanted more of him to be in the movie, cause he looked cool.

    Done for teleportation mishap DSG.

    Done for furry robots DSG.

    For this one all i had in mind was, orange fur with glowing eyes. The way i work on most pieces is that before i start i have a very vague idea, very vague. Then as i start to work along the piece i start developing parts of the piece. I dont have a concrete idea before i begin a piece, which is pretty bad sometimes.

    I'm glad you just keep goin'! That's the way to be.

    I like your original/ stylized stuff. The thick lines and all that.
    Great!

    hey there

    Hey, like your stuff. When I see it, it makes me think of storyboards. I think you'd be really good with comics. Your use of crosshatching is awesome. You have definite shape and I like your choice of colors, very bold. The only area you should work on is anatomy, with that under your sleve you'd have terrific results. Keep it up. London is on the hearts and minds of America.

    ArtisticSchmidt - thanks man! yep, drawing everyday is the key to improvement i think. Thanks for visiting.

    Siobhan - hey, thanks! Yeah, im really into different types of comics. Very much into manga too. Hehe, thats exactly what im doing, cause im so crap with human form and proportions. Thanks!

    Thus, the class begins. Time to temporarily close the door of imagination and drawing from my head, and start focusing upon references.

    chest muscles look a little weird. Check out the classic Burne Hogarth books. You should know what I'm talking about.

    Those torso studies look pretty good, man! I think you should do some faces from photos or reference now. Keep up the good work and progress will come faster!
