    Wheeljack's Sketchbook

    Check out Page 12 for work that isn't 5 years old!

    So I have finally decided to join the ranks of the Sketchbook Threads. Please feel free to lay into me with crits etc. I am always open to constructive crticisim and I hope to learn and improve with every new piece. Thanks for taking a look and I'm greatful for having the opportunity to share with such an impressive community as this one.

    What you see here are some of the most recent stuff that I've been plugging away at.

    Wow, you want to learn and improve with EVERY new piece? Cheezus that's hard pressure. Well, I hope you are able to do it!

    Everything you showed looked pretty good I thought. Of course things can always look better, especially if you are aiming for realism. But anyway I would recommend branching out and trying to draw some things that you are unfamiliar with. How about that? How about.... a castle?

    Now these last couple are my attempt at illustrating the Boss Battle with The Fury. I've been tinkering with the idea and I'm still humming and hawing over it. Any thoughts? What's working what ain't?

    Aether: Thank you and yes I do enjoy it.

    I see in my last port I said that I'd try to post more often... Well a couple of months later. Here I am! heh heh.

    Well, here is a dose of what I have been up to.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    The last piece is a small rough for a Metal gear illustration I was thinking of. The idea is for it to be in the same vien as a classic paperback using the mike shane series template. I've also included a cover for those of you who aren't familiar with what I'm talking about.

    Another sketchbook page and a couple of more comps for that paperback illustration I was talking about in my last post. I just wasn't satisfied with the pose so I thought I'd crank out a few more ideas....

    Hey guys thanks for taking a look.

    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.

    Thanks for posting.
