right well I've been drawing for a while but only got back into it recently just been drawing alot for fun so I thought I'd let everyone who cares see them and gimme some constructive feedback.
some might show up a bit sketchy because my scanner sucks.
I'll also post the photobucket link if its too small
Not sure how much each post can hold lol so Im gonna post in like sets of 2 or 3...
Here's some scribbles that I did at college when I shoulda been working
Kill ALl Hippies
oh one more then, the new and improved lazy gun...
Plenty more still to come I'll let you guys comment on these first though lol.
These are all a bit cartoony for my taste, but if that's what you're going for, you're doing it well. Nice composition on that last one, and I like your attention to detail.
Thanks, yeah as you can see Im into the whole comic book thing. I am actually doing a life drawing course at the moment aswell and as soon as I can get my work back Ill post some of it.
some nice sketches here, like your little cartoon guys they remind me of worms
Trifles go to make perfection, And perfection is no trifle.
lol thanks, they are called Blobs. Me and my pal came up with them in english at GCSE level a few years back cos we were bored, only later did we realise the likenesses.
Anyway here's a few more pics...
heh heh my cheesy fanart
I'll update again in a few days
Nice, but Gun Desing is no good enough for me :> Characters good, other stuff very good, but Guns... But, in all of the case, good Start and i like it. Greetingz.

-- My New Not So Sick but Yet Sick Sketchbook is here! --
Thanks for the compliments, and yeah I see your point about my gun design I've always had trouble trying to make the angles and shapes interesting without making them look like something out of a 1950's sci-fi film. If you have any tips and how I could improve on this aspect it would be much appreciated
Primal is pretty sweet...I like the sketchy look a lot but you could do some more with that one, inks or photoshop. Only trouble I see with it is the eyes are uneven.
Ty, yes I see what you mean about the eyes, I'll probly change that a bit. I was thinking of inking but I've never used photoshop to colour any of my stuff. I'll try and find some tutorials or something if you know of any please clue me in.
as you said before, your style is very very comically influenced, and you do a nice job with that. you said your taking a life drawings class? looking foward to seeing that, you can only benefit from it. but it seems like your having fun, so your on the right track. keep'm coming, cheers.
I don't know of any tutorials offhand...and there are many possible ways to go about it. Since you've never done it before, I'll suggest one way to get started quickly:Originally Posted by Lazy Gun
First, create a new layer (call it "flat color" or something like that) and set its blending mode to "Multiply."
Next, select all the areas that are going to be one color...let's start with the skin for example. Using the plygonal lasso, zoom in really tight and select every area of skin. Once you've got it all, pick a color to fill it in with. Fill it.
From here there are a couple ways to go. If you've got a lot of greys in your image and already done a lot of rendering with your pencil (say the skin on the whole is grey, with only the highlights being white and the shadows black) you might be able to just change the blend mode on your "flat color" layer to "color" and have a pretty sweet looking image.
But if your image has a lot of very light areas (as this one seems to) you're probably going to want to make a third layer for shading. I normally use "Linear light" as the blend mode for this one, but a lot of the options will give you good results, depending on what mood you're looking for. What you want this layer to be is a grayscale image that contains all the light and shadow information you need. If you have a tablet, use the paintbrush with a low setting for the opacity and paint in black and white. If you don't have a tablet, it's probably best to select different areas and fill them in with various shades of gray.
This is just one way to do it, but I think it's a good starting point because it keeps things fairly simple and it's also very easy to change the colors, like if you were mostly done with the picture and suddenly you decide the dude should have blue skin instead of a fleshtone, all you have to do is go to the color layer, click on some skin with the magic wand, go up to the slection menu and say "select similar", and then you can just fill it all in with the new color.
After you've worked on it a bit, you'll probably start to see some of the other possible ways to do things, some of which may work better for you. Experiment away--but try to keep things simple (i.e. don't let things get out of hand, where you have a zillion layers and you can't tell which is which
Ta Max god bless copy and paste lol I'll have a play around with that thanks. and to lazy (weird saying that to someone else other than me) Ink works best when your going to colour it. Thanks for the crits. Having a dry patch at the moment becuase of applying to uni and homework and stuff got me snowed under but I shall try to get some more stuff posted.
Yipee more updates, don't you all feel blessed. Ya right.
here are some doodels from college and a page of sketches I did.
enjoy and gimme some feedback
Another update wether you want it or not
Nice work on the new stuff...cool face, pants, guns, and belt. All the little details.
Watch the shoulders on the girl in the rain. Shoulders aren't just lines between the arms and torso, they have mass and volume all their own.
Yeah thanks for the tip I never finished shading it lol, i did some on it but it didn't show up very well through scanner
