well. This is my first post ever on CA.org. Kinda nervous i guess. It'll be gone soon. Ill do a lil BG first. Started to draw wen i was 5ish. But, never persued it in any way or thought that i was any good. wen i turned 14 tho... i got fascinated with a particular anime called DBZ and started to crank out crappy-ass goku and brollie pics. But then i realized this show sucked and lost my interest... and put my drawing on hold. I never took an art class until i got into grade 10... 10th grade to all u americans. Some how i started to get 100's and 90's on my drawing assignments. I was like wtf? guess i discovered some sort of a hidden talent that had remained dormant for a good part of my early life. (all those DBZ sketches paid off) So wen i say ive been drawing since i was 5.... the statement isnt necessarly true. nover really got into it till i was 18, but even wen i look back it was still somewat halfassed. And now that im 20... i actually am starting to understand and enjoy drawing. I find myself wanting and striving to get better. No longer be the kid satisfied drawing his DBZ and comic immitations. I wanna learn how to concieve and draw exactly wat i imagine. That is my reason for this sketch book.
So... here is a weak start to my sketch thread. ill get some more recent things up. these are just wat i have scanned in atm.
sketches and character designs.
A request from a friend. Inked on velum.
And a quick figure study done in PS.

Thnx for the warm welcome. I checked out both ur sketchbooks inturn... they are very nice, like em.
I dont know y i drew this... but i attempted a redesign of buffy. Im happy with most of it... just dont like the left hand, and how the bottom wow in the skirt turned out. I added thos S&M style hi-heels.... but im not sure i like them... coz they say too much "S&M" and not "vampire killing" hi-heels. Was planning on adding more vampire killing gear... but decided it would interfeer with the cheer leader getup.
lol... yah. i always liked to think i liked dbz b4 everyone else. It started to suck wen everyone liked it.
Owell. I like to make up stories. And ive been designing my own Vampire world. This is the character sheet for the main char... his name is kenya.
Kinda messed the levels up in ps coz it doesnt have this contrast IRL. The katana has the ablity to vibrate at the harmonic frequency of anything it touches. So it can basically can anything. And the blade extends like a utility knife. The core is hollow.... and gets filled with liquid metal that hardens upon the induction of electricity. Thus accounting for structural weakness of a hollow blade.
Rebecca: lol yeah. i had fun. I was learning about dynamic and static relations and the flow of forum. So even b4 i drew the pic i put down some establishing curves to follow. Lil to extremem, but hey, its a comic its ok to go overboard.
Proteus: thnx... mabey ill dig up some old dbz sketches and post them, that are the shittiest funniest things ever. Coz i thought they were teh coolest drawing evar wen i made them. Now i look and im like "wat a piece of crap!" Gives me a good laugh.
Cartoonfox: Yeah! that is a tatoo, im surprised u noticed! that pic is kinda old tho... mabey ill redo it, without the sketchage. Orginally he was supposed to be the one armed samurai. But i added the other for balance.
mmmmk this is a digi only post. Just some samurai thumbs.
all done in corel with the camel hair.
this is a wipLFD (work in progress left for dead). did this and the last one awhile back... but i thought id post them. Always fun looking back... and to make up for all the time i browsed the forums and never posted.
And this one is hot of the press done about 10 min ago... took about 10 min to draw.
hope u like... im just to lazy to scan.. but ill have stuff commin soon.
denyed:thnx, here are some weapon thumbs i did for a story i was creating awhile back. Had the scans on the comp... and u said u liked my weapon designes... so i thought u'd like to see these. Had fun thinking them up... some arent that original.. or structually sound... but who cares they are thumbs.
did them all with a 0.05 staedtler pig. linear and some warm grey and cool grey prisma markers to add tones.
thnx, again, for the kind thoughts. bare with me, im still learning... and dont intend to stop.
