    Lord Dubu's Fortress of Tofu-dude (updated 03.25.14)

    Deeply envious of others sketchbooks, thought I'd join the fun. I've a bad habit of only briefly visiting my sketches. Perhaps interest in some of these concepts might force to me flesh them out more. So here goes:

    Thanks Drew. I was missin' the love in this thread. I guess few comments is as much a blessing as it is a curse.

    It means you don't suck enough to elicit pure hatred, but you still aren't good enough for the fan-boy posts.

    So I shall trudge on with:

    "Ode to Don"

    badass

    and I love the way you jump between styles

    you need to do more "finished" pieces... and play with color. Great stuff anyhow.

    Ferg, thanks for commenting. Yeah I am schizophrenic when it comes to style. I see something I like in someone else’s work and involuntarily I'm influenced by it. And for a week or so I go all chameleon stylistically... usually though the phase passes and I revert back into my own style (if I in fact have one).

    Newbs, thanks But which ones are "orcs" to you? Besides the dokebi I mean

    And now for today's sketches...

    "Chieftain"


    "Chiyaki"

    OK so forum rules are no B.S. posts... thus I will try to only post to this thread -when- I have sketches to show off. But I'll do my best to answer any posts that come imbetween...

    First things first today's sketches:
    "NalNalLee Twins"
    "Baek Armor Redesign"
    -I got a burst of inspiration on how to handle the armor of my strong man in my Musa project. I'll post the sketch here today, and an update to the painting sometime soon in the Musa thread itself.
    "Retronaut"
    "SaeYoung and SaeJin Cho"


    OK... now to respond to your wonderful comments...

    I have sort of done that in the Musa thread (see my sig line). It started as a series of doodles in my meeting notes, and grew into a full blown photoshop paint project. Thanks for the compliment.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. I like your render of her a lot. Very good pencil work in that.

    thanks Bart. she told me she likes you too.

    That Chiyaki one... isn't she that psycho chick called "Yoyo"?
    The Asian influence comes in part from my Hot-Korean-Wife(TM). The other part comes from a childhood of kungfu movies and anime.

    Chiyaki is the first name of the actress who played Gogo Yubari in "Kill Bill".

    I'm glad you liked the night. That was for a video game concept that never went anywhere because the developer who commissioned me lost interest in doing the project. Making it the 4th time I've -almost- been published! ha!

    Hello. Nice work here you have good control with ink and pencil. My favourite piece is "Divine Knights", it has a wonderful feel to it. I also like how some of your work is stylised and then others are more serious. Good work!!

    Great stuff. I was really thinking about critique, but you´re obviously way out of my league. Curious what your stuff will look like when you reach page 6 or so, post some more.

    Nice idea... now I have a benchmark point to look forward to.

    It's funny to me that so many have commented on Divine Knights and how much they like them considering the whole thing took maybe 20 minutes to throw together. In fact I used the exact same method to create "Dark Priest" below... and he only took 5 minutes.

    Another vote for "Divine Knights", how funny. Sometimes I think maybe I should try and be more consistent stylisticly, then other times I say screw it I don't wanna be locked down.

    And Now: SKETCH UPDATENESS

    So my Mom gets me sketch journals every year for Christmas... this year she bought me a fancy looking one from one of those fru-fru granola home-made book type places. It looks great, but the paper has a weave to it that makes it fairly useless for pencil work.

    So I've been sketching mostly in Ink with it... it's been fun, and I've found it to be a rather nice exercise for loosening up. I also unearthed my spritz bottle which I use for ink splatz and charged it up just for some variety.

    These sketches are a lot less refined than I've shared with you previously for the reasons stated above, but I thought I'd get all vulnerable and share with you my "brain storming process" since everything in today's update is a brainstorm for other projects I'm working on. (More annotation on this with each individual entry).

    "Dark Priest"
    The story this guy goes with is really in its infancy more than any other story I'm working on. It's a extremely distant future setting in the vein of "Warhammer 40K"

    "One Light Out Flyer"
    The guy in my neighboring cube at work is a rock-star by night. He asked me to design the flyer for his next gig. He hasn't seen any of my development on it as of yet, but I've promised him a smarmy post-apocalyptic pirate girl with an eye-patch.

    "Orc Bathers"
    It's really coincidence that I was working on my Orc bathers at the same time the CHOW for this week was announced. They belong to my only fantasy themed epic (which I've been developing for over 10 years now). I should point out they are errantly called Orcs by human settlers in my story in the same way Columbus called the indigenous peoples of America Indians.

    "Lady Yasmeem"
    Lady Yasmeem is from the same epic described above.

    My influences in no particular order:

    Geoff Darrow, Katsuhiro Ottomo, David Mack, Timothy Bradstreet and Marc Michetz... probably more but I can't remember them right this second.
