SketChumble *** Update 5/16/07 = More life-drawing, and one really bad drawing.
After seeing my friend, Teigrob's sketchbook thread, and what it's become (hoo, boy) I thought, what better way to get into the habit of drawing all the freakin' time? Especially since I've fallen into something of a slump lately, what with all the 3D stuff I do at work. Not much time for the ol' sketchbook anymore, and much to my suprise, when all of a sudden one day I found I wasn't as good as I remember being six months ago...
And so, with this thread I pledge to the best of my human ability to draw and draw and draw, until my hand becomes a claw. But not to that end, of course.
Hopefully I can get this attachment manager thing to work out...I may need some help. There should be (that is, I'd like for there to be) fifteen sketches in this post. Crossing fingers...now.
EDIT: Hey, it works! Unfortunatley, I can't comment on individual images as they appear in order. Next post I'll try the photobucket approach--that is, unless that's frowned upon in these parts...not sure why it would be...I'm such a noob.
So, anyway, you may notice some of my characters mimic Teigrob's style rather blatantly: this is intentional; we are in cahoots. I needs to learn her style so's I can animate proper. The crows are not from reference, except the big crow, inside of which i drew three beaks. The scorpion is for a CGtalk Unofficial Game Art Challenge that I may not finish because recently it has come to my attention that drawing is very important. Gotta get my priorities straight! Let's see what am I forgetting...the tyrannosaurus' eyes are adorable. Nintendo is awesome. Socktopus tastes like underwear...I assume.
EDIT: select drawings removed/replaced.

Dinosaurs are freakin' sweet.
Triceratops and Pterodactyl are researched, Tyrannosaurus and Allosaurus are not so much as they are from "memory." (I was the second grader who could pronounce "Pachycephalosaurus" and knew what it meant ).

Pachycephalosaurus, i loved that dinosaur when i was a child!!!I still loving dinosaurs (you have seen my blue-kind-of-dinosaur in my sketchbook)!I love your style,that small cat-boy is soooo sweet!I want to see him fighting a great Allosaurus!YOur birds are coll too and....well...everything is cool here in your SB.

Thanks Camara! I was actually kind of amazed that the birds turned out so...decent. But I do have a lot of crows around where I live, and I watch them whenever I hear them. I love it when they caw, because they hunch their shoulders up like some kind of cranky old man. And when they walk, they kind of hop-limp. It's cool. I like crows. Except when the dive at me.
And now, I present squirrel-boy (not cat ) VS Allosaurus, as per Camara's request. Sorry, I kinda skimped out on it. There was already huge-muscle guy and Freakazoid on the page, so I was running out of room.
And a fat old dragon with a rockin' combover.
Now, who's brain has a chocolate coating?

Squirrel-boy,is my hero!He is so.....alive!!Hahaha,good to see Freakazoid here.I watched him on TV when I was a teenager here in Spain (in english,of course,in Cartoon Network).

Update = Robot Egg
canned_fruit: Thanks, good to know mine still works!
Camara: Alive?! That's the best thing you can ever say to anyone, ever. Thank you. And Freakazoid was totally awesome.
Had an idea for a short animation, so I sketched out the wanderings of my brains. Now I need Flash so I can animate it. (30-day trial to the rescue?) And just to clarify, Esther has eye lasers, and she labels things with them. She's lasering the the word "pencil" on the pencil.
Also had an urge to draw hands last night (thank you, Teigrob), but alas, it was late and I didn't want to get my sketchbook out lest I fall prey to my own imagination and end up drawing until fifteen-past-who-knows-when and get to work later than would be wordlessly excusable the following morning. But darned if it wasn't a nasty itch, so here's a quick MS Paint sketch of my hand.

Ah, nothing like a good hiatus to help me forget what I'm doing!
Finally, I made it (by force of friends--thank you) to life drawing early enough to get some gestures done. Next time I need to cowboy up and use a darker lead--no more of this sissy HB stuff. 3B at least!
Kentucky: Sorry for making you look like the Toxic Avenger... I needs to work on faces...
Yes, that's a sniper-femur.
And finally, sumbliminally inspired cartoon characters paying homestarrunner homage, and some more dinosaurs for good measure. Yay, dinosaurs! Oh, and a fish.

Hey, great job on Kentucky shooting a femur-sniper. But do I really look like that? (just put you on the spot...)
Those cartoon dudes look more like Mario Brothers inspired than Homestar Runner...but then, I haven't seen a lot of Homestar. Regardless, nice expressions.

I was afraid you were going to ask me that... But honestly, as I was finishing up that sketch, I was noticing a few things that were off. For example, I don't suppose your left thigh has twice the circumference of your right...
As for the "Mario" dudes, the quote at the top of the page ("What did I say?!" "...to make good graphics..." such a hilarious clip...) is from Homestar Runner, which is the homage I referred to previously.

Sheesh, has it been two months? I could admit to slacking off...but instead, I'm just going to blame the holiday season.
So I finally made it to a life drawing session at the old AI-of-S when the life drawing class was actually happening. Tuesday I went and found the room empty, much to my dismay, especially since I had put so much effort as to actually attend...but I digress.
Here's some weird lizards, the other guy who was at the session, and the naked old man we were drawing:
That dragon has a camel-face.
And here's this tree I drew a while ago. I thought it was really something, so I decided I'd try to paint it. Grass is pretty annoying when you want to go fast, but I guess that's where I should've learned a lesson in patience or something grown-up like that.

I'm really liking the dragon as it has more personality than your model did. I take it they were doing the same ol' same ol' poses that are so..... unanimated?
Anyway, look forward to seeing more from you.
p.s. Teigrob is thinking I should do more modeling for you all..... something about a vulture pose and a tree.... don't ask.
