    Rogzilla's Sketchbook!

    I recently got a new sketchbook and I am focusing on just working through anatomy again while defining my style. I thought I would start a sketchbook on here and share what I am doing, maybe get some feedback/encouragement/advice on what I am doing.

    So here is my first page. Just some head studies. Two of the skulls are from a photo reference, the 3/4 view is just trying to remember as well as looking at the other two drawings. Three of the heads are from photo references as well but the rest are out of my head. And yes, that is a profile of Smeagol.

    Really well drawn. The faces look lively with great expressions. The skulls look awesome. Hope you'll upload some more soon!

    Art is our true global language.
    It knows no nation, it favors no race,
    and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform.
    It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible.

    I thought I would take a moment and respond to everyone who has been kind enough to comment on my work.

    Zombie_dla - Hey thanks. I am a really trying to make my faces have a lot more character to them. It is so easy to just going into an expressionless face, you know?

    GreekGodMan Thanks to you too. Yeah, I find it really helps me if I give myself some direction. Actually, it was by giving myself direction (working towards a good portfolio by doing some CHOWs) that I realized I needed to work on this.

    Envisor Thanks for the welcome. I will keep updating if people keep coming! ;-)

    KromNz Thanks (is it starting to get redundant yet?) My one pride I allow myself is my line work. I spent years studying the works of people like Adam Hughes and Mitch Byrd who are just excellent draftsmen. I am not near their level yet but I hope to be eventually.

    I will post more tonight. I am at work right now so I can't actually do any artwork OR scan it. My general plan is after I finish these basic anatomy studies, I will move on to specifics (ears, eyes, noses, lips, hands, feet, ect) and then bring it all together. What I need though is a good reference for body fat. It is something not a lot of artists think about since many of us tend to idealize our figures. Drawing over and under weight people I think will help a lot.

    After all that...well, maybe some people could give me ideas? I am thinking doing some animal anatomy studies but I might just do some landscapes/nature or architectural drawings. Really, I need to work on my persepective...I tend to screw it up. Anyways, thanks again to everyone who commented! ^_^

    Yeah nice anatomy sketches you've got there! I guess an upodate will come soon? Keep up the good work. I myself should make my bloddy homwrok now so I can study the fun things instead of the boring ones. And aint Smeagol a cutie!

    I drew the back...and doodled. Yeah, its pretty much crap but whatever. I just want to keep drawing, even if I have to force it a little. Its like working through writer's block!

    This page is a bit of sketching inspired by the CHOW this past week for Mr Hyde. I didn't have time to do anything for the CHOW itself, but I came up with this design. Hyde ended up looking too bulky but he still looks awesome.

    So I decided to take a different task this week and do what I call "Style Studies". With these, I just take some samples from my favorite artists (usually something I feel I am having some trouble with) and redraw them. So here are some studies of the works of Adam Hughes. He is my biggest influence in my art work. Tomorrow, Mitch Byrd!
