    explosivelimes sketchbook

    Hello there,

    I've been browsing the conceptart forums for a long time, I've just never taken the time to register before. Until today. I thought a good place for me to start would be to create a sketchbook. I have a website where I always post my work to: explosivelimes.com

    Browsing these forums has always inspired me to improve my concepting abilities through drawing and sketching. My main tools are design markers and ink pens. I use mechanical pencils every now and then as well. Since I have a part time job at Hollywood I rent a lot of movies, and lately have been drawing from them. I will post those soon. For now here are my latest pages from one of my sketchbooks. Critiques and comments are more than welcome! Enjoy!

    ~ Jeff

    Finally got a scanner. So here's a fresh batch of sketches I've done while watching some recent movies. The last page are just some random girls done with markers and ink. Enjoy!

    Thank you both! I hope this isn't too much, but I really am liking my scanner here and I wanted to post a sketch I did earlier today, and another I finished about 15 minutes ago. Marker and Sharpie. On the second scan, the guy sitting down on the left is some random dude who goes to my college. The big nosed freak is just plain. . .odd. I think he's pretty rad though.

    It's been a busy week. I've been working on a few new things, but mostly photography. I have some sketches I did a few days back at a local mall in my mole skin sketchbook that I thought I would share. Enjoy!

    And in case you're wondering, sometimes I sketch in church. That's what those few notes are from. I know it souds strange, but it actually helps me stay alert.

    Here's another small update. These were drawn only yesterday! The second page I scribbled while watching behind the scenes footage of Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.

    I noticed that most of my sketches only show the front and profile view of people. I picked up on that and tried drawing some strange things from differing views. I've also been using markers alot and thought that today would be a good day to work in pencil. Critiques are more than welcome! I don't believe there is any other way to improve unless I get opinions from someone other than myself.

    Been sick the past few days with nothing to do but lay in bed and watch movies. I did happen to pick up a sharpie and a couple design markers a few times. Here are the results of those endevours:

    When I was younger me and a few of my brothers used to draw comics and try to sell them to other kids we knew. Only one of us was sucessfull in actually selling them, but we all enjoyed the drawing part anyway. This is the first (partial) comic I have drawn in a very long time. Hopefully it won't be too long before I draw another.

    really awesome linework, I love how you vary the weight of your lines, and I absolutely love the self-portrait

    if I could offer any advice it would be to study some more anatomy, Loomis would probably be most helpful to your style of drawing. More understanding of understructure of figures would really help bring your characters and concepts to a new level.

    Thanks! I understand my anatomy needs a bit of work. I did bookmark a website a while back that had a bunch of Loomis' books available to browse online. Could be a good time to revisit that site.

    *edit*
    Looks like they've taken the books offline because they're now available to purchase again! Too bad I'm a poor college student and can't shell out $145 for an anatomy book.
