    here are a couple more. When I first started at Vigil I was a bit of a noob about 40k fiction so a lot of my sketchbook is just about trying to learn the fluff. For a while I got excited about a tech priest that was remote controlling a swarm of tyranids. My coworkers reminded me that this is heresy.

    Here are a couple more doodles from the ole sketchbook. I was looking back on some of my earliest posts looking for signs of progress. I think I feel like I have improved my ability to draw from my head and come up with ideas. I think I need to be using more reference into my ideation work.

    So I got my first homework assignment in TAD. I am going to get started on it tonite so I will hopefully have an update tomorrow.

    Another couple sketchbook pages from the archives. One thing I have been thinking about is how stronger values can drastically enhanced the finished look of a sketch. I think I am going to try that in the near future.

    I will post some screens of my \model tonite. For nor this is the photo-ref that I am going to be working with.

    Ok, so no 3d yet. Going to get started on that as soon as my daughter goes to bed. I don't know if I mentioned it recently but feel free to crit. I just want to get better so all feedback is welcome. The stuff I am posting is a little old but pretty representative of the same stuff I am doing right now. As I mentioned recently I feel like I need to work better with reference, and I am interested in how to devolop a style that feels finished but still retains that sketchy quickness and energy.

    Also, since I am an environment guy I am always looking for ways that I can do a better job of drawing game-play space.

    Voltage: Thanks for the kind words. I hope you don't mind the crit. I know that is what we are supposed to do here, but I am not always sure if people actually want it.

    Kinkostas: Absolutely man! I gotta say your sketchbook is doing great. A real testament to hard work. Are you working in games yet?


    so here are a couple more doodles. Hellboy and Daisey are of course studies. The other doodle is a byproduct of playing a bit too much castle-crashers... love that game!

    as promised, here is the beginnings of my first project for TAD's 3d1 class. It definitely has a long way to go, but I am really excited about it thus far. If any of you max people out there know how to get that symmetry seam out of the middle of my cushion I would really appreciate it.

    Zed: Yeah I did a couple studies from one of my daughter's stickers. And by studies I mean I drew a cartoon duck so my 2 year old would think I am awesome.

    Yor: Glad you think so. I really like your sketchbook too. Learning how to speedpaint is high on my list of things to do.

    Great sketches mate. Well i have some experience with 3d and 3dstudio max. I start modeling in low poly, getting the basic masses and then i can add as much details as i want to. So in that case when i do symmetry and still have a low poly model i can delete,cut,cap,bridge and arrange my polygons in the way i want, more easier than on a high poly model. With what programm u have worked this? Maybe pick the mirror gizmo and move it a little more towards inside, the chair may become a little less wide but the line will disappear

    Nahh mate, i am still no good it seems. Tried to find some freelance work but noone contacted me. Anyway i am contributing on a indie game and we are doing quite nice going toward the demo, but i will have to keep trying hard to be able to work someday.
    Thnx for your interest

    Keep up the great work!!!

    Kostas: Thanks for the tip. I was thinking the same thing about moving my symetry gizmo, I am building this off of a really low res mesh that has a turbosmooth modifier on it. But is is still really lo-res. I will show my wires before long.

    so here are a couple of Joe Mad studies that I did when I started working on Darksiders to help me get into the groove. They were a lot of fun. I may do some more at some point.

    I also have a "Speed-paint" and by speed I mean it took me 2 hours... I don't know how these really fast painters do their thing. Black magic and voodoo I guess.

    Love the character sketch. The speed paint...looks somewhere in Europe? That's what I see in movies.

    Another 1 am post. I am actually starting to get excited about this chair. I can start so see the potential there. One thing I noticed about these archive sketches that I am posting is that I don't take them nearly as far when I think they I am the only one that is ever going to see them. I guess that is one more advantage to posting here.

    ps thanks Kostas for the advice on the seam, that totally fixed that.

    I just picked up Sam Keith's sketchbook. I friggin love his work! Fun shapes fun scribbles. As a kid I really aspired to be like him.. I still draw my feet too big.

    So these are a couple of personal doodles. I have been drawing these ghosts that just say "Woe" all the time for years I don't really know why, except that we live in a culture where everyone is trying to tell you that the world is about to end. To me it is all insubstantial, so I think that is what the doodles are about.

    The dude with the genie is about having the potential for greatness but often passing the opportunity by. A bit autobiographical.

    So for a long time I have been working on this Steampunk-Americana CCG that pits different folk heroes against each other. In this doodle I was monkeying with a more disneyish style, which I pretty much hated. I like the strong shape-making but there is so much unwanted context in the style that I don't think I can go this route. I don't think of this drawing as a failure as much as I see it as successfully discovering a way that does not work.

    Kaikikuro: Thanks for the praise and the stars, that is awesome. I am happy to give crit and tips where I can, but you are doing stuff in your sketchbook that I am really struggling with. You have a really well grounded structural sense without compromising your creativity. Are you a professorial storyboard artist? If not I think your drawing style would be well suited to it.

    So here is some concept that I did for my Halloween costume. The idea was that I was some sort of Steam-punk Airship hitch-hiker. I would have a harboon gun that I would use to attach myself to passing ships then glide aboard with my glider-backpack. As cheesy as it is, I ended up winning Vigil's costume contest. People dig the wings I think.

    I just finished my model. I may try to get the embroidery in before class tonite, but since I am not really great at spline deformers I thought I would hedge my bets and submit it as is. Including a couple more doodles as well.

    Andre: Thanks man! Is there anything specific you would like to see more of?

    I don't really know what I was thinking when I did these. Just doodling.

    In other news my 3d1 class is really kicking my butt. In a good way, I suppose, but it is still getting kicked.

    In some of my earlier work I focused on using a hatching style that emphasized core/cast shadows. I think I am going to do some more of that but with ink and water-color. What do ya'll think?

    I am still catching up on the archive dump. I am almost done though. This one was from just a couple months ago. As always my best doodles are during church.
