hey dude, awesome sketchbook. Your rendering and inks are fantastic, and your themes are badass. Who doesnt love pirates and military personnel drawn in a siiiiiick classic comic style!
wish i had more to say other than simple asspattery
Amazing Action Ape: Asspatery is always appreciated. Could you please elaborate on the "classic comic style" comment? I've been told that before and I'm sitting here (stupidly) scratching my head thinking " I don't get it?" heh heh. Maybe I should have another coffee...
Johnny Dark: Thanks for the comments! And yes, I'm fond of the Avatar too. I actually wanted my Handle to be just plain Wheeljack but somebody else on the forum beat me to it! As for the loomis, I might be able to help you out getting a copy of his books. PM me with you're Email address and I'll fill you in.
Well its always fun to do scenes and dive deeper into a story like Metal Gear, artistic, isn't it? Great busts and skeletal renderings. I love that transport plane you did, have you done anymore vehicles or planes?
Matsign: Diving into the metal gear story for me, is good excercise and I'm trying to challenge myself and keep pushing. Artistic does describe it. heh heh. But yeah, I'm having fun. For the Plane, thanks! I don't draw mechanical stuff all that much and it's on the list for me to work on. All I got is an Ink jobbie of the Shagohod and a Russian Motorbike marker rendering I did a few years back.
4 more pages of drawings for this post. I'm really trying to just feel comfortable drawing again. I know that sounds akward but I really do feel empty creatively and I desperately need to loosen up and just get down to practicing. So, here goes....
shame there aren't more replies here, your work is really quite good. i can't find much to crit as it all looks pretty consistently great as far as sketch work goes. your environments are the only thing i can see that could use some love, some of your pencil rendering looks kind of scratchy. otherwise it's all gravy.
cheers dude and keep up the good work.
