The Sketchbook of Mister Moreau
Hello, folks! Behold, my first sketchbook. I guess I'll have to re-post the stuff I put into the "Destroy Me" thread in the Critique section of this website. But for now, here's a quick portrait Ive done in PS. Any other stuff is available in my Photobucket account: Moreuvian_LX9 is my handle, of course. Let me know what you think!

Playing with Airbrush
This is just me experimenting with the Painter airbrush tool. I like the stippling effect.

Yeah ... I figured I'd do some sketches off of some pictures I had lying around. All this is bic pen on copy paper. Oddly enough, I think Im more comfortable with those old things than I am with my drafting pencil and bristol board.
And here's a little caricature that I drew, because I was in an anti-Bush state of mind whilst drawing the previous sketch.
And finally, something fun. I wish I could introduce Dubya to good ole Marv.

My first mountain range
I abused the palette knife in this particular experiment.

the midtones on the first piece are way too dark, if they're even there. i assume it was done on purpose for some reason, because you didn't do that on those 2 faces with the green background. by the way, i like those. nice graphic feel to them. that 2nd pic of bush looks a lot more like reagan than ol' george.
lets see some more!

Yeah, I understand on that portrait of my buddy. I thought that the shading on that was very very very flat for some reason, but couldnt peg the reason. I'm definitely continuing to work on my illustration skills in photoshop and painter. Saturdays are pretty much my "hole up and draw all day" days. Today, I especially experimented with the watercolor tool in Painter. Pretty fun!

hmmm ... I THOUGHT I finished the Mountain Range, The body builder, and the Zombie. Couldn't figure out what else to do with the water color guy. Placement and color seemed to do me in with the water color guy. I want to put more on him, but cant figure out what to put there that might compliment his form or color. The mountain range was my first landscape ... but I thought I finished the hell out of that one. What does it need, do you think?

I don't know what to say, because if YOU, as the artist, say they are done...then they must be done. Myself, I think they are crying out for more rendering, more details, more interesting things going on inside of them. They just seem to need more from my view.
But, if this is a finished work...then this is just critical opinion.

Just got some graphite powder, so I thought I would play around. I enjoy how rapidly I can work with it, rather than scratching scratching scratching away at the paper with my pencil. And I enjoy using the subtractive method of drawing. Helps me map out my subject quicker.

well, first i have to say that i love the hawk man sketch, so ive dubbed it. good, thick lines and a nice work on the beard and hair, to make a rather interesting character face. id like to see more of this guy. the one peice i remember- hard bargain-from your thread, and think that its a good example of how you use all the colors as more of a base and background than you do for the actual subjects. keep up the good work man, and i look forward to seeing more of your work and your characters.
