Character concepts for my medieval story?
Edit 05. March 2009:
Please check the later pages of my sketchbook, since the first ones are quite outdated. Thank you!
Hi everyone! This is my first time posting here at Conceptart, and having thought through this, I think this is the right place for me to start. Please redirect me if I got it all wrong...
I have a few sketches I thought I'd post, there will hopefully be more later.
Starting with an 'old' piece; from March this year. Manga inspired.
Following up with a coloured sketch, pencil and watercolours. Made this summer, I think it was in July. It's a quick concept for a medieval story I write, this is the owner of the Inn: 'The Silver Mantle'.

Ok, a bit more.
Thanks for your comments everyone. However, I'm not a pro, you will surely notice.
Two very quick ones, coloured with watercolours.
I think I need to do more structure practicing.
Good update for just quick ones, keep on postin!
Thanks again, people.
Ok, two faces. Quickly drawn, as usual.
And now, (you guessed it) a quick anatomy studie. Quite un accurate I must say, I really need to do more serious studies...
This one, it's supposed to be a young girl... I should also study women's anatomy more. I'm not very good at it yet. Hope you people have a few tips to give me on that...
First off, some foot studies I did. Reference are taken from 'Anatomy for the artist', drawings. I know though, using your own foot is probably better. Either way, I learned from it, though I can see flaws on the feet.

Pencil and watercolours
A roughly drawn guy. Made it wile watching highlights from the Eurovision Song Contest on TV. I do have problems with drawing such trousers though...
hey there. nice studies, and great characters, not to mention wonderful use of unsaturated colours. your stuff is great, but i would like to see some saturated colours, i think yuo could do some amazing stuff with a bright pallate. cheers. keep updating
Nice...Very nice indeed, I really enjoyed looking, and cant wait to see some more. You have a very interesting style, very soft and traditional feeling
SOme very good stuff. You have a great imagination. There is a nice fluidity in the action lines here:
Cat human (pencil and watercolours) :
This one is made for a school task. I was trying to make it look like a white mortar rock. I think mortar is the word... (studies dictionary)
-Wacom and Painter Classic
Thank you people, again, for leaving your comments.
Shyamshriram: Yeah, I try to dive into the world of detailed studies... But it goes slow, so I'll post when I've gathered up a few. I look forward to it too.
Jtheanswer: You got the PM.
Ok, time for some more.
Here's a quick experiment with acrylic colours, not much focus on the face itself. That's why it's so out of proportion.
Practicing painting fur with acrylics, done for a school task:
Some faces. Oops, I see the eyes on the top guy are not on line... I should have constructed the ehads more first.
Nice stuff, you have a good sense of personality in all of your head studies, I like that. Looking forward to seeing more.
It's when you can't hear the bats, that's when the bats are coming.
Since this is partly a speedpaint, I post it in my sketchbook as well. You can find it (with more detailed description) in the Critique center.
Now, I tried to draw my hands. There are many flaws on them, but this is the only way to improve. I used pencil on a rough, dark paper.
Those two were made with Wacom and Painter Classic. The first one is supposed to be a balloon head. I wasn't very consequent with the lighting though...
The second was a quick practice with light and shadow, and the colour in it. The headcloth is way too small...
i like it! wheee!
Inspired by Prince of Persia, the games, but it's not the prince.
I know about the stomach's anatomy, and the ribs, but it's so fun to draw... I must get better at drawing and studying how it looks in real life, not only the way it's fun to draw.
