    Sunday Stroll Sketchbook--Barret Updated Jan 06 2007

    Hello Everyone! This is my first post on the forums and I hope to make some new friends. I hope to update the thread weekly with more images. A couple buddies of mine have started a little sketch session on the weekends, and so far it has been super fun. If any one lives in Vegas and wants to come that would be awesome. Also if there are some of you in Vegas that already has something going on, please let me know. Some of these sketches are straight from the pages of the old SB, but some of them are from a personal adventure of mine while reading Orson Scott Cards "Enders Game." just some personal drawings I did throughout the summer. hope you like em!

    I like the designs at the top, cheesy in a good sort of way, look very 70's future. One question I've got is, are those two characters supposed to be kids or midgets?

    Ah, Enders Game, that is definitely one of my favorite books of all time. It reminds me of the description of suits and weapons for their games, but I would imagine it'd be more drab, military style. Maybe without the wide cape off the waist. I like the color usage on all the other works. Top Notch!

    haha, armando. The characters in the book are about 8-10 years old.

    Mr. Man-- thanks man I'll post some more from the SB

    Matsign-- Yeah I really enjoyed the whole series. haha I actually read the first one, then a couple years later, started reading the whole series. Thanks for the input man, but when I was coming up with concepts for the suits I was thinking about how they could promote a "war like" feel for kids about 8 to 10 years old. something that they would suit up in and feel like they were going to kick the other teams butt. Also, the fact that they have to put their helmets into keyholes to end the game was a major factor for the design and the helmet.

    ho ho!! I love this one http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1157230488
    I dont know how to call this area of the face but the cast shadow
    and deept of the eye sockets does not looks quite rigth on some
    of your faces, like this one the eyes look pasted, dont outline
    them with such a hard line, even if she is wearing a lot of eye liner
    it will not look as hard as in your drawing, there is a slighty
    disaligment on the eyes as well and remeber that even pretty
    girls have nose bridges, if you omite it, it will look off.

    I made a quick over paint to ilustrate my points I know I might have added
    mistakes of my own to the mix, but even so I thought you might get some
    ideas out if it, if you want me to ill remove the link ill do it asap,
    I really liked the girls face, thats why I wanted to work some more on it.

    JoeHell-- Thanks man, I'll check out your stuff as soon as I get a chance. Heading out the door right now.

    maxetormer:HAHA, I like what you did to the girls face! Much more grimacing, I like it.

    Here is another sketch that I started painting. I'll take your advice when it comes to that area.

    p.s. how do you put links to sketchbooks at the bottom of your posts?

    I searched the book on amazon.com after seeing it mentioned in another fellows sketchbook, maybe I'll read it, I don't know, 384 pages... The thing with the Ender's kids is in the action montage that he has adult proportions. The kid in the spacesuit has very angular features, could be a teenager or a butch woman, kids tend to have smaller faces compared to their skull size. I don't know, maybe that's explained in the story. I like the color scheme on this recent chick, the stripe motif too. I don't think the cowboy boots go with the rest of the outfit though.
