http://www.livestream.com/tomscholesPsssst, this stuff is old! Go to the later pages!Right, seeking a compendium of my scribbles and what not here I am. Not sure how much I blend in here amongst such amazing talent but what the hell, should inspire me to get better quicker.
I'll start by posting some things I've done recently.
Let me know what you think, whatever comes to mind really. Thanks for taking the time, this has been such a great community.
Just finished this one:
"Our hero the RobotKing escapes the Volcano" A blob doodle as well, fun with colors!
Gave up on this puppy, got bored I guess. Pose is weak too.
Here is the thread for some processes:
"Swamp Monster" Another random blob into a creature doodle. Was really fun!
"Eeek!" Blob doodle as well.

Fun little chicken!

This one was an experiment with a pretty limited value range, focusing on hue changes for depth.

Color scheme was fun on this one.

Hey dude! Good to see you've started a sketchbook. Love some of the new pieces....in particular the 'blob'. I think that it's (as yet) the best drawing and colour job i've seen you do. I love his little arms
Looks like all that work on colour theory is starting to pay off big time.

YES .. Idiot Apathy has a sketchbook ...
One thing though .. i am confused as to the origin of the light source on the girl facing the sony box .. her highlights seem to be from every angle .. maybe its just me ..

@Azeira: Thanks, I don't quite follow what you mean by smoothing out the colors though. Could you give me a specific example? Thanks again!
@mull77: Thanks for the encouragement man! Your talking about the Meowing Blob right? It was pretty fun, arms were the last touch actually.
@DieOxin: Thanks man! Bout time I started a sketchbook huh? Hope to learn a lot from the people in here. Your right on the Sony Girl, I had it planned with stronger lights coming from the recessed box she is in, didn't really flesh that out, thanks for bringing it up!

Updated the robot a little bit with some input from the IRC guys. Missing the old batwings,
I think they were better for the composition. I liked the old blue part of the volcano better too...
Did this "overpaint" on a whim, hehe... cheeeeeese.
Did this last night, hour or two. Really fun. Added a heavier shine to some key parts
and the grass after some prompting by Grooveholmes.
This is a bit of an experiment on the last one after Lightkirtar said the symmetry was
hurting it a bit, I think it got too busy and I didn't feel like finishing it.

Awesome work, youre really developing an interesting style with your paints. Some great experimantation going on but id like to see some anatomy studies or something from reference. Gonna definatly check back.

Another example is the arachnid/crab like creature. The color distinctions on his lower half are quite strong, and smoothing the edges of those patches, perhaps even bringing in a bit more detail along with them, would make a very impressive effect for the life-like appeal of the creature.
these are just things i noticed. you know what your doing, so dont take any of this personally. simply proposed considarations.

@LightKirtar: Thanks for dropping by dood! I can't say I've ever done an anatomy study... I'm such an amateur especially when it comes to drawing. Definetly something I'm going to be studying intently very soon here. Keep kicking me in the ass alright .
@Azeira: No offense taken of course! Always glad to hear different viewpoints. Thanks for the great thoughts and ideas; I'm definetly going to explore them further. Stick around, I'm glad to have ya!
@D0M: Thank you! I just want to re-iterate that that one was a collaboration from the New Media Coloring Book, the lines were Uncle-Enzo's.

A slime from last night:
A few touch-ups today; going to see what else I can do between homework. I think I burnt my eyes working on a bright background...
Edit: Tonight's efforts -
Weeee, should probably spend more time on this one but, I'm bored. Spaceship is kinda weak too huh?

From late last night:
Fun with some simple colors; a speedy. Trying out some new brushes.
Messing around with some texture on this puppy, not quite there but a good experiment.

Still too hard to paint over lines with so much prior shading, I guess not hard just too time consuming and not fun enough. Couldn't take it as far as I wanted or exactly what I wanted. Had some fun making it look a little like "traditional" media though.

Been doing homework with my free time all day, messed around a bit with some paintings only came up with one worth showing. Kind of an nod to last nights as well.
Gunna be busy for a few days here; finals and what not. Ugh... and at such a high inspiration point, at least the last few days have been fulfilling.

Finished up some of my homework early and scribbled this out; good fun!
