Cookie's ditched cookies ~ old sketchbook. No longer updated.
K, i suppose this is gonna be my sketchbook. I hate posting stuff, but i guess it's necessary for improvements and stuff.
Here are some recent sketches/somewhat finished stuff.
I saw the movie only a couple of weeks ago, i should finish the other doodles i made while watching. Maybe i'll go back and add some more details to this one. Fix the wonky sword, maybe do something about that BG. Illustrator CS over a pencilsketch.
Speedsketch, used a reference. Photoshop CS. Got bored, didn't really finish.
Another sketch, this is OC. I'm aware of the wonky hand. It has some other issues. Used a ref for the pose. I guess i like the hair.
Used a ref. Played around in illustrator. This one's finished. Looking back i could've done so many things differently. Oh well... live and learn and stuff..
1: i like the character but the bg is kinda stealing her attention maybe its the blue in the picture, but the composition works for me, my eyes keep focusing on her eyes and imo thats a good thing.
2: be carefull with those flesh tones they are a bitch and they bite back hard if you do them just slightly wrong. there is a slightly plastic feeling in her skin but i dont know if that is a style thing or not, so i cant say if its positive or negative. But i like her expression, looks like if she has been posing for hour and hours and is kinda bored with the situation. Hehe, or something.
3: I like the warm colors in the bg altough they are kind desaturated. Her neck is a little bit to far back and it makes it looks really off imo.
Yeah, hi again. Didn't wanna post something without any art.
Thanx for the crits. You're right about the first and third pic. I hadn't realised i still draw giraffenecks. The second was a speedsketch i never finished.
I'm glad you like the style. Actually, my inspiration comes not from one specific source. I do lurk around a lot on this board cos they have such fun art. But when it comes to cartoons, i like watching Shin Chan, Totally Spies and that kind of stuff. I should be watching the news instead.
K, new pic. It still has it's issues, but it's somewhat better then before. No refs, quick sketch in Painter Classic, then traced/colored in Illustrator.
The part on the left is empty, cos there was some text there before. I felt that cropping it wouldn't help her, she looks more balanced now. Or something. I dunno.
Thanks for the compliments. Pop-cartoon... that's a nice description. 'Bout the hair:practice and experiment and do your own fantastic hair.
@oven g love:
Hehe, pubes on fire. Actually, she was a redhead before, but earlier feedback was "It looks like Disney-porn!". So i felt i had to change it, cos it was just coincidence instead of intent.
Thanks for the reply. I don't know Kyle Baker, but i'm glad it's something positive. I'll google some later, cos now i'm curious.
You're right about the arm. I don't like going back to pics to fix up stuff and that is what i did with this pic a couple of times. In the version i posted here, i changed her body quite a bit (less booty, more rib/waist and stuff). I overlooked fixing the arm too. You're also right about the bloodshot eyes. Maybe she was in the mood for some tears. I have no excuse.
Ah, i'm happy you like my cookies. But i'm no man. Hmm, fur. I suppose you're right. Nice to know you're keeping an eye on the goodies.
Thanks for the compliment. I'll try to keep it up.
So, since i just kinda promised that, here's some new stuff. I felt like experimenting after i found this neat, i think it's Belgian, indie comic. It had this amazing style and i think the artist mixed both photoshop and illustrator or something, i have no clue. But i did feel like trying something new after checking the art, so this is done in illustrator and photoshop. I'm not sure how succesful it is. I really should learn to plan my sketches better before i go and color up stuff. I also pretty much hate green. Anyway, here's the pic:
