    Inked SP

    I took the scan, printed in blue, and inked it. After scanning the inked version, I removed the blue. This is the result. I might do it again with less hatching and more emphasis on the lines. It did lose quite a bit from the pencil version. I'm not really that happy with it.

    Icon design

    I just did three icons for work. Not having done a lot of icons I think these came out OK. I realize it's not the usual thing for a sketchbook, but here they are anyway. The first two are a toggle that shows an on/off state for locking in search criteria, and the last one is an icon to bring up an index of search values.

    Trolls and old ladies

    I'm re-doing an earlier project that before I'd just penciled. Here's a version of the original and a current version. This too will likely become a mini-comic.

    More Graphic Design Class Pieces

    Here are a couple of pieces I did for my graphic design class. The first one, of the party, isn't as finished as I'd like, but its what I have time for. The second one I spent a little more time on. It was still fairly quick, but I spent time working out the coloring and learning a bit of blending. There's not much in it, but it's there. One problem I ran into was that I used channels to pull out the linework. Since I put the linework in an alpha channel, it didn't show up in the final printed version. I think I might continue to use layers until I figure out the channel thing a bit better.

    The project is for a new drug for depression: Damitol. With the first drawing, it has the headline, "Ever feel like you're not quite there?" It's a print ad to drive people to the web site. The web site shows a progression of the drawing from rough to the finished version below. Her smile is a little too wide and on the edge of creepy. Oh well.

    Storyboarding project

    Current assignment is a 3 panel storyboard that shows "The Accident." Panel 1 is the setup, panel 2 is the accident, and panel 3 is the aftermath. We can interpret "accident" any way we want. This is my first thumbnail for it. I used reference from the X-Men for the guy holding the gun and the guy on the ground.

    Sunday figure drawing again

    Figure drawing started up again. I'm reasonably happy with how this came out, but I need to get a bigger sketchpad for these sessions. I'm still working on the cross-hatching and blending method for building forms. I also spend the first 20 minutes just getting the proportions right. I think that helped.

    Watch some of your proportions here. The eyes on that color portrait are huge! Also on that one, the way the neck is attached is kind of strange.

    Keep up the hard work!

    Second version of the BloodBath & Beyond cartoon. I'm thinking of putting a gradient behind the linework.

    More Violence

    I'm doing the 3 panel storyboard called Violence at a size of 14 x 19. I scanned in pieces, stitched it together as best I could, and adjusted the levels and such. These are the pencils.

    Storyboard Inking

    Sublimus - Thanks for the comments.

    Here are inks for the storyboard. I'm happy with the use of black in panel 1 on the figure and on the buildings framing the figure. I'm not happy with how the fact that the bullet from panel 3 hitting him in panel 1 gets kind of lost. Maybe the larger figure in panel 3 doesn't work. I also need to fill out the back of his head there. I did the inks in 1.5 hours because this project is due sooner than I thought it was.

    Lunchtime Doodle

    This was a doodle yesterday, then inked very quickly last night. It's stylized on purpose - hopefully that comes across.

    Sunday Figure Drawing

    For the first time I tried figure drawing at bigger than 8.5 by 11. I got a sketchpad at 14 x 17. I'm not fond of the model we had. He's a nice enough guy, but he doesn't pick very interesting poses. In this case, I bulked him up some since I was doing the troll thing. One thing with working bigger is that I don't have as much time to get to the entire figure, so the torso is the most refined and the legs the least.

    I the feel of every picture. Same goes for the comics. Yor proportions needs a work. Don't be afraid to draw lines to match thing up. Get into some anatomy and more figure studies.

    Today's figure drawing

    The length of her forearm is one of those things you look at as you're winding it up and go, "Oh my God how did I not see that before?" In this case, I blocked it all out first, checking proportions as I went. When I got to that hand, she'd moved in since the time I did the blocking. I just erased it and drew in the new location and went right on trucking.

    Ballpoint doodlin'

    A random doodle in ballpoint pen from a meeting. I made him up as I went rather than blocking things out first. Bad artist!

    thanks, for commenting on my sketchbook
    I can see some nice improvement here, but you surely can do it even better:
    Some suggestions:
    - Stop inking! It's time consuming and totally pointless if the basic drawing is off. I think you should do TONS of figure sketches, quick ones! You did some nice Bridgman studies earlier. Don't stop drawing them! Doing one minute sketches is one of the easiest and fastest way to learn many things about human anatomy and proportions. You can find as many references as you want here

    - Focus on underlying structure! Figure and portrait drawing has its laws you must follow to produce working images. I think that the problem with most of your drawings is the lack of structure. You seem to focus on contours too much, and not on the bones and muscles which actually build up those contours.
    Loomis books are great to learn things about the structure of heads and figures. I recommend "Figure drawing for all it's worth" and "Drawing heads and hands". You can find them here.

    - Push shading as far as possible! Use the darkest darks and the whitest whites! Use many different kinds of pencils from 9B to 6H! This helps a lot to make your images look more three dimensional.
    That's all.

    Btw I like that bunny rabbit in post #228 is really nice.

    Yoga II

    Novbert: Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll use Posemaniacs to do a "100 Figures" exercise by setting it's random feature to 60 seconds and doing 10 a day, starting next week.

    Here is the latest version of the Yoga drawing. I'm going to have some stuff in the art show at RavenCon this weekend, so I'm preparing this one and some earlier things. Should be fun - it'll be the first thing like this I've ever done.

    Asparas

    This is a preliminary sketch to work out an illustration of an Asparas - kind of like an Indian water dryad/muse/fairy/handmaiden at Indra's court. It's ballpoint pen.

    Gestures part 1

    Sublimus and HumanNature - Thanks for dropping by.

    I've started the exercise with Posemaniacs to do 100 figures or so over a week's time. Here's the first batch. I've done a second round too, but don't have time to scan it in right now. They're bigger, of course, but are reduced and Leveled here. Each one is a 60 second drawing. I didn't realize until I started all the different angles, and the first one started off from directly below.

    The bunny is too cute

    I also like the guy running in the street with a gun though I think your perspective is a bit messed up on the other side of the street, looks like too much of the sidewalk is showing and that makes the buildings look like they are on a higher level. Still, it looks great, you're improving

    Cheers!

    Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook again. I'm glad to see you started using posemaniacs. Those sketches are pretty nice 60 second ones, with solid linework (I esepecially like the 3rd and the 12th). A tip: if you use the 30 second drawing feature of the page for practice and uncheck 'advance mode' then it gives you poses viewed from some less 'challenging' angles.
    Keep practicing!
