    thedarkcloak - 12/13/06 - Holy vampire stabbing Elvis, Batman!

    Hey everyone,
    longtime lurker, rare poster.
    I thought I'd start a sketchbook on here however, and I'm hoping to start participating in the speedpainting threads. To be honest, it's been a little intimidating to jump in the fray, what with so much talent and killer art that can be found here, but I'm really looking to improve as well, so I'm going to hop on in & see what I can do, and what I can learn.

    The Behemonster

    Quetzalcoatl Demonio Basilicus (my take on the Quetzalcoatl)

    A hefty 17 character spread I was commissioned for...

    Sketching around in photoshop...

    my city of heroes alter-ego...

    conquistador de las tinieblas... done almost entirely in painter.

    messing around with monochrome whilst in a zombie mood... graaargh

    Uncle Wilbur, the jawless zombie whom all the other zombies need to help eat. poor guy.

    I've got quite a bit more, but I need to find/ resize them so that they're board friendly...

    Thanks!

    man, your sketches are badass. I love this one: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1155862816 looks like you've got a good hang on your anatomy, i'm envious of people like u. Anyway, just wanted to give props. keep it up man.

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Hey AZ!
    Thanks kindly!!! Yeah, I've worked pretty hard on my anatomy, but I'm also trying to learn how to do more body types, and break out of the anatomical habits I've built up over the years. >.< . I checked out your sketchbook and you've got some killer Envos going! I need to learn how to do the whole Z-depth thing, environments really kick my butt. Always learning, and always growing though. Gotta keep pushing for that.

    Your sketchbook has really inspired me to do more loose doodling and sketching just for the sake of doodling and sketching whatever may come out, with no real goal in mind.

    See ya 'round!

    Nice work! Some really good stuff here and a good clear grasp of anatomy (something I'm still working on!). You seem to have a a good forward thinking attitude as well which is half the battle to producing good art (or at least I hope it is hehe).
