Icon is fabulously sketchy!![May 27 2009 update!]
Some quick facts:
I was born on Halloween , and I am 23 years old.
I'm currently enrolled in the CA Atelier and loving it. :P .
Note that Newer images are in the last pages (of course it depens on your thread viewing preferences .)
Just a random unfinished sketch. I usually can't help myself and paint a few highlights digitally.
Quick 10 minute concept. I had fun digitally too. =/
it's a foot!!!!!!
Hooray for woman power...yeah.. Did this one on my way back from Siggraph, no ref ( just in case the horror would not give it away, har)
pen practice of hands. no ref.
a pig! and the crowd rejoices!!
quick study from real life. i must improve my muscle work!
20 minute sketch. no ref.
I will promise to scan more and more, as time passes ( hopefully will have an actual painting..or.. semi-painting because then it would not be considered a sketch. hah! ) I am in the process of moving from hole in the wall A, to hole in the wall B. ( The joyous life of a student!). So that might slow down the process of posting but I'll be sure to come here often. It's about time I overcome my shyness. :D

The Following User Says Thank You to Icon For This Useful Post:
Your use of white on the toned backgrounds is really effective! Are the backgrounds toned digitally too? Do you ever sketch on toned paper with white chalk/conte crayon/etc for a similar effect? (because the digital highlights look very natural)
I'm also really impressed with your hand sketches, they are very dynamic.
Wertle: Yeah the highlights are all digital. I've have worked on colored paper with conte, chalk, and pastel.. but iit was a long time a go, so maybe i should pick it up again, ne? Thank you very much for the thoughts, they are very appreciated!
Sawa: Thank you very much.. hands are kind of rouch, but i love how expressive they can be. I'll try to post as much as i possibly can. thank you.
Great no-ref stuff. It's a real challenge, and you're pulling it off well. It's great to see a variety of subjects, though I'll be looking forward to seeing more color and perhaps some paint.
Congrats on the new sb, it looks like this will be a real winner.
Wow, You knocked me off my feet. What a beautiful work! Foot! Hands! Woman back! Pig! Mistic! Foot again! Foot again! Foot again!
I need to lay down.
Thank you so much
I'd liek to see some of your highlights done by hand, the digital effetc is nice... but digital. Keep drawing cute girls!
Here is a small batch of drawings. Once again done in pencil, and some highlighted digitally to refine the quick sketch.
men on parrots are just cool...
this one was a quick drawing. To this moment I'm not too sure why I added the halo and wings it just sort-of happened.
This one I will eventually turn into a painting. It was inspired by the many hands I did earlier. The crappy soft lights are just a very early reminder of my lights
For my next sessions I intend to work on real media, if my wallet aproves of it.Thank you very much to everyone that suggested this, and inspired me to work even harder.

Craig: Thank you for your comments. Hopefully I'll be able to put some colors on my next batch of drawings. And paints...man I am dying to get enough space to be able to paint... that and money. I want to try oils on pannel
Sve: thank you. Ah so much motivation
Blue Mech: I know. I get tired of digital sometimes, don't get me wrong, it is such an useful tool and very good, but you tend to loose feeling upon how things truly react and are aplied. I'll try and see if for my next batch, i can come up with more real media, rather than digital. Thank you for your comment as well.
hey.. you have some really good stuff here... nice and varied.... the compostion on the weird eyed dude is really good.. and teh chick with the hammer rocks hard man... post more!
These are fantastic! Love the girl with the plants especially! Keep posting!
i love the way you draw the smiles. dont forget to at least suggest some settings. those could help to suggest a time,culture, etc and can really help say something extra about the figure.
Damn im impressed with your hand studies...and without reference too? Shoot. I can't draw hands for beans....feet too. I'm trying to improve on that aspect. It makes a heck of alot of difference in ur drawings if u can draw hands and feet well. Keep us updated with new stuff!
Ah it makes me happy to know people are watching and sending comments. I am very grateful to all of you.
Vigostar: Thanks, man! My apartment caught on fire though, so I won't be able to post anything for a long while, but as soon as i can i definetly will!
Red Goblin: Thank you! I guess the same should be said here.
Antquin: Ah yes, I need to stop being so very lazy and do a little bit more elaborate concepts, even if they are sketches. I'll attempt some more sketches with this in mind. Thank you.
A_J_M: Yeah, agreed. I am still trying to memorize hands and feet to perfection. They do really make the difference, since it adds a lot of personality. And i really would dislike being the artist that hides hands because they can't do them.. but thank you for your comment, it is very motivating
Thank you again all of you. it makes me very happy. Take care and I'll attempt to post as soon as I get everything sorted out.
Very interesting update. Figures look less constrained because you used different longer lines. Wonder how your drawings will look with very fast loose lines. My favorite are second(the worm) and the forth. On the worm I like how you did the volume and the texture of its skin (wet and slippery). On the last one I like figure, expression of the face, general mood and this unusual lovely pattern, design of interweaved hands.
