    Discoskull's Sketchbook Thing

    Hi ya'll
    Just graduated from SCAD and now I'm really missing the constant contact with other artists. Thought I'd finally try out this conceptart.org thing. I do a lot of comic art, but I love doing concept art.

    Here are a few samples some of my most recent work. I usually do a lot of monsters and modern stuff, but I've had a boner for ancient warfare lately.

    Feel free to critique it!!! Really. It feeds me.

    A Persian-esque heavy footman type, with elements of european armor and samurai swordsmanship. At least, that's what I think.




    A Mayan/Incan type bird archer thing, in progress...




    A Generic Barbarian Type. Before/after, as well as some other warpaint ideas










    The Boogyman in his lair




    And, just for fun, a few warriors from BC-era history that I did not design myself...

    Parthian Cataphract (can you see the inspiration?)



    Sweboz (german) guy



    Gallic (celtic) guy



    Seleukid (Iranian-Greek empire) guy

    these look really great, i love the style. i think the first one, the man is twisted a little too much for compfort, and the 2nd one needs a bigger bow!
    the mane with the white skin and red warpaint is my favorite. lets see some more bro!

    Do not, ever, under any circumstances, not have fun.

    I didn't notice what was wrong with the first guy's pose until I tried to do it myself. I'm actually already in the process of fixing the bow on the second one.

    Here's that mantis-skeletor thing inked

    colors will soon follow...

    I love these but my only crit is that your outlines are all the same thickness there is no variation.
    I love the matis concept I can't wait to see it coloured

    The drawing and understanding of the forms is pretty good - I tend to like the full color versions you do, rather than the black and white inked versions. They have more life in technicolor...

    I think if you vary the line weight in the inking, you will get a boost in the overall effect...with the lines all one (or nearly one) thickness, it tends to flatten things until you get the color in.

    I think the barbarian types are the best - they have a thick and meaty and gristly feeling in the shapes and contours of the anatomy...

    What/where is SCAD? (Forgive me, it's been nearly ten years since I've been in school...oh the time flies...)

    Keep posting - would love to see more - how about some females, too? And thanks for the sketchbook visit...

    SCAD is Savannah College of Art and Design, in Savannah, GA. BA in sequential art (comics, storyboarding, etc.).
    I'll draw a chick and post her from thumbnails-finished...and I'll do more with line variation, as that's not the first time I've heard that...thanks for the critique

    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    So I recently realized that I hadn't drawn a chick in six months or so, and before that it was only life drawing.
    I also need more monsters in my portfolio, so with my next peice I'm going to try and kill two birds with one stone.
    Of course, I can only start on it once I've finished remembering how to draw a hot female...

    I drew these freehand - I've had a long, tiring day, so I forgot to use my anatomy books, and also forgot that I had access to oodles of free internet porn...

    Feel free to tell me exactly what I'm doing wrong. I have a good idea of most of it (still working on the legs), but I'm pretty biased...

    (tried to make these chicks look buff, since they're using swords and whatnot...following these guidelines, their boobs should be somewhat smaller...but oh well)




    I have to pick one of these to do next.
    I'll try the more extreme angles thing once I've mastered the simple, straight-forward angles with female bodies...

    (background: some royal Incan-looking palace place. Will extend to include the entire creature thing)


    (background: Outdoors, probably an open rock face at the edge of a forest with mountains blah blah blah, to make it look as if she was ambushed while taking her man home)


    Riddle these with critiques, if you please. I kind of need the help...

    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    like most of your stuff, one thing i've noticed tho is that you rarely do any backgrounds, i think they'd help alot since alot of your characters are set in dynamic poses, but it looks like you'll be adding those in with your most recent sketches so good luck. The women in the post above all have huge thighs and big feet, you might want to address that, unless thats what you were going for. Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. Hope to see more frmo you soon!

    Wow, meaty thighs - disturbingly so! Stylistically I can understand it, though it is a huge stretch from reality. On most ladies they're not as, errrr, pronounced as the way you've drawn them...heheheheh

    I do find that I enjoy the energy and unrefined line quality of these last sketches...I always find with my stuff that when I go in and lay in the "big guns" of heavy ink, it tends to dull a bit of that energy - always something I have to fight against...

    Thanks for the clarification on SCAD...I'm so out of the loop now that I paid off the student loans....

    Hey thanks for the comments ya'll. I love having ca as a free online critique center.
    I've moved my sketchbook here.

    And just so this isn't a useless bump, I'm figuring out chicks...methinks I should visit a block of hookers with an ether-soaked washcloth to get some nude models...



    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.
