    Smells Like Brownies! (Burning...) *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Ok so here's the deal....way back when I first joined CA, I had a sketchbook, but I didn't know what i was doing (post-wise) so I stopped updating it awhile back and...well, it sucked.

    SO, I'm making a new one! It will have all the same stuff I post elsewhere in these crazy forums, but they will be concentrated into one thread here instead of spread about! Isn't that cool? Well? Isn't it?

    The more chances I have to get feedback the better, so here we go.

    My Marilyn:
    (yes I know, I am missing her collarbone mole...that was recently pointed out to me). Used photo ref.

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Experiment with painting, mug study, and design:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Flash animation character concept:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Character concept ink:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Same character concept, painted loosely:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Fashion design:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Character painting:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    'Nother fashion design:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Character sheet:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Graphic novel character illustration:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Same, but white!

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    Robot design:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    And I guess that's all I really got for now.

    Hey Brownie, some great stuff here. I really enjoyed the mugs (of all things, who would've thought?). One crit on them would be the yellow refelective highlight o the right side; it works great for both the red and the green mug (green one especially) but it really doesn't seem to fit for a highlight with the blue one. May just stick out too much for my eyes, though.

    Keep it up and post some more!

    Cheers,

    EDIT: About Marilyn: I especially liked the rendering you have done of her left shoulder, upper arm and collar/neck area. Good work.

    Ok, so I was feeling really stupid the other day and whipped up this bad boy. I needed some humor...and I didn't want to take the time to actually DRAW anything...

    I am quite aware of how stupid this thing looks, so making fun of me is mandatory.

    Haha, the last sketches are kinda cute - they remind me of those little robots from the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series. ^.^

    Marylin's right eye (our left) looks slightly off/droopy, but I'm guessing that's because there isn't a define outline of her eyelid like on her other eye. I think the hair could do with a bit more depth as right now the strands look a bit too linear and separated too cleanly, imo. Otherwise, the colours are good and the picture itself is nice'un soft to the eyes.

    The mug paintings are great! Your paint strokes are finely executed and they almost look real.

    Haha, I can imagen your bread kitty being on an advert. =^.^= Very commercial design and easy to remember.

    How the hell do you keep your lines so clean?! And er, is it necessary to have their crotch glowing? xD Hehe, interesting design, and I recognised your style - saw your amazon woman design a while ago but can't remember where from.

    Lulu made me chuckle~

    I really, really like the sketch on the bottom left...

    http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b1...whitemuted.jpg
    ...That, and this (especially this) reminds me of Perfect Blue. Loooove this page!

    With the Amazon woman, her arms (top right sketch) don't look like they're pushed back due to the colouring/shading. I'd imagen they'd requre more shadow if they're behind the rest of the body with frontal lighting. Maybe someone else could explain this better, lol.

    The robot design is extremely clean and quite sharp. I like how you avoided using solid outlines for this one - it works.

    Lovely SB, Brownie - keep baking~ ^___^

    I'll be honest and admit it is quite hard to keep my lines clean...often involves a lot of drafts, redrawing, and erasing the strays. I've gotten faster with practice, but it used to take forever. getting proper control on a wacom tablet is an endeavor indeed.

    Yes it is necessary to have the crotch glowing because my boyfriend hates it! mwahahaha! Oh the lengths I will go for spite...and a good laugh.

    You must have seen the amazon from my "Updated Concepts" WIP thread. I know exactly what you mean about the action pose arms, i have been meaning to fix them but haven't gotten around to it.

    As for Marilyn, I agree there is more that could be put into it, but I've decided to let it go for now (I spent too much time working on it already), and maybe update her in the future. Thanks a lot for the detailed comments, I appreciate it a lot!

    Some rough/fun muscle studies based off of pictures from my reference books and other studies I've found by other artists. Tried to add my own personal touch.

    I have to do these for an anatomy class (I have more on the way), but I'm hoping they can double as portfolio pieces if I play my cards right.

    cool anatomy piece... if you want to make it look finished as well, you need to up the contrast between the various muscles in the face study.

    By the way, I really like the rendering on the robot thingy...


    wanna see more!!!

    You have a nice clean style for your figures that work quite well and you have a way of capturing the right expression on the faces. That robot thing is kind of funny looking, so if you want to be made fun of, it kind of looks, well......dainty. Yep, those skinny little legs look dainty. Not a good look for a robot, ha,ha.

    Like the face studies, too.

    thanks guys, for your comments!

    glikster: you are probably right about the face study, I will work on that.

    madplanet: dainty describes him exactly! I couldn't stop chuckling when I drew him in that limp-wristed pose with his hip sticking out.

    gmags: I really appreciate your support and glad you came by! I will have to swing by your sketchbook.

    Ok so i wasn't sure I liked how my handwriting looked there, so I tried this:

    Smells Like Brownies!  (Burning...)  *New: Fingers and Toes!*

    I've also been working on an illustration I've been hammering on for quite some time (I work on it a bit, can't make up my mind about something and stop...rinse, repeat. ) The b/g was inspired by a concept artist's work that I stumbled upon online awhile back and for the life of me I can't remember his name, but if I do I will certainly share it with you all. I hope it's not too small.
