    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom

    *EDIT*Even though nobody is viewing my sketchbook, I will try to update this xD
    *EDIT again* I don't have a sketch book. I just draw on paper (usually scrap paper), and put it all into a shoe box. that's kind of why this "sketchbook" isn't too sketchbook like.
    I carry a clipboard around in public xD

    ____Unimportant stuff_____
    Personal Info:
    Age > 18 (legal?)
    Gender: Male
    Psychotic Idiotic and Good at math
    Goal: a comic artist, using appealing and interesting art to capture an audience.

    Self analysis: I'm a NOOB at shading, CG coloring, anatomy, perspective, precision, blah, blah, and blah. All I have is persistance, will power, and a lot of hidden Chakra and reiatsu that require a 21 minute session of screaming to summon.

    I just decided to get mores serious about art a while ago, so I figure making a web sketchbook would encourage and force me to try to draw in a more "interesting" and appealing manner.

    ____________Stuff_______________

    I kinda stuffed 6 sketches into one page, in an attempt to reduce hastle
    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom
    BIG SWORD MAN, attempt at clothing and a curvey pose, spear woman with bad boot, curvey girl with no foot, ME!! being BORED IN CLASS, some random quick sketch thing i did (all my female characters tend to look like her)

    As you may have noticed(?), I'm influenced by Manga and video games.


    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom
    Here's an attempt at a scenery 1pt perspective thing i worked on for 2 periods. I abandoned it cuz it got too tough on the left to envision. I plan to color and finish this when i stop sucking at photoshop.

    Random pic of a girl and a beach

    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom
    Random run and... a bad suggestion of slashing




    you probly wont be seeing more stuff from me, cuz Right now, i'm working on:
    CLOTHING!! ARGGG
    Thingie things (watches, armor, weapons, belts, etc...) ARGGg
    Photoshop coloring ARGGGg
    and maybe making an avatar for myself?

    I realize, after previewing my post, that my post is kind of annoying xD

    Update!
    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom

    (as you can see, I don't have a sketchbook. I just draw on the back of the handouts i get from school)

    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom

    I don't understand why photobucket sizes down all my pictures when I upload them...
    Anyhoo, I made these sketches yesterday, and I started photoshop painting today. (second attempt at photoshop painting)

    Holy Crap, this is difficult grueling efforty stuff. How long would it normally take to paint something like this in photoshop?!!?!?! Because I spent 4 hours on this and I'm only this far. >___>

    My working procedure:
    Lots of LAYERs
    lots of BRUSHING (opacity, flow, etc..)
    Lots of Erasing
    one 50% opacity layer of the Original drawing.

    I attempted a line art as well using the pen tool, but that attempt went far worse than I expected....

    Anyway, I really just want to screw "shading and painting" on photoshop right now, and just learn how to make the line art.... but I still can't find a good line art tutorial right now. Maybe my drawing is just too sketchy.


    *EDIT*
    After some mountain dew, fried rice, and one hour, here's what i got so far:
    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom

    UGLY UGLY AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    It still looks like it can use some touchups.
    The figure sketch that lead up to this should have curved more.

    Here's some actual "concept art" i did for somebody-

    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom
    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom
    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom

    The first one is awkward and uninteresting

    The second one, i realize i screwed up really really badly on sizing the gun =___=
    I know, it's called foreSHORTENing, not forelongening

    The third one is out of proportion, and short. Oh well.

    Anyway, i'm still grasping clothing, photoshop painting, and how to draw miscellaneous "stuff" (armor, chainmail, etc..), the latter which requires a lot more practice rather than having to know some concepts and techniques.

    I'm thinking about changing my drawing style now. I'm going to use more "flow", and less edge. Whenever I look at my own drawings, I feel like something inside of me is in prison. Some people can capture feelings of free space, wind and water, power, and stuff like that. My stuff just feels like prison.

    I also figured out the secret to line art...
    you don't do it on photoshop. you have to use a permanent marker. *gasp*

    the top drawing, i used a reference from google
    the second one i drew on the train staring at random people.
    third one I tried to memorize a pose i saw when somebody was standing in their doorway.
    The last one isn't finished. maybe the body is too short, but i'm trying to have her bend it =_= but basically, wherever i put the other leg, it doesn't look right, so i gave up for now.

    Anyway, i just wanted to update this thing because i fear this will get deleted if i didn't. X_x

    Mmm thnx.

    I suck at memorizing anatomy details. I learned almost all my anatomy from real life drawing, and I just don't have that "eye for details" or something.
    I just really suck at practicing those anatomy book things... just too much stuff to remember, and it all gets jumbled into my head later.

    her hand has been completely killed.. it should be pointing away from her body.

    oh well.

    School starts now, and looks like I at least got some more consistency in my drawing this summer. Not too much progress though. I blame it on my summer job (teaching kids art xD). Exhaustion.

    I'm pondering just how much I will focus on drawing during school, since I'm not in an art major. I really want to improve, but I really want to study hard too at the same time.

    I also really want to play smash bros brawl, but that's a different story =_=

    Your works pretty good, anatomy could use a little more work though. Do some studies, start with Loomis or Bridgman.

    During school scribble here and there in class, scribble teachers, kids, a classroom's full of life. Course you should also pay attention. You'll practice your life drawing, multitasking and covering up skills

    Keep at it, there's been some improvement.

    Random meh poses:

    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom

    good thing I know how to draw xD

    half tone effect is fun to use. I guess i shouldn't be using it, since it covers up my work a little... but it's fun xD

    This will probably be my last update until... a long time...

    Cool stuff! I applaud your persistence on using tough angles in your work, just be careful with forced proportion. The sketches look good, but it looks like you don't have a very firm grasp on the basics of painting yet. Have you seen this tut?

    I found it very helpful.
    Good luck, and keep posting!

    what i like is that i think all of these show ambition. you try different angles, faces, scenes. you just need mad milage and my guess is you will improve a lot but just keep on doing what you are doing and enjoying it. i would work on making longer confident lines when your sketching - drawing from the shoulder and keeping your wrist locked. you can still correct your lines but now they have a bit of this careful, padded look to them. keep it coming man..

    Thanks. I've been working on line quality, and i still haven't figured it out.
    I haven't been drawing a lot at all lately, due to classes.

    anyway, here's some random stuff i managed to scan:
    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom
    o00o0o0o0o0o's Boring Sketchbook of Invisible Doom

    this is pretty much the same as how i drew before. >_>
    i haven't had time to learn any anatomy, and line quality is pretty hard for me. My lines are all wavey and crookedy.

    I your pecil work give off a nice soft feel, but I wouldn't mind some of the edges being more sharper. For your trees try to give them personality, by showing age, spreading the branches more wildly. Right now it look a bit generic.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. Thought I'd return the favor...

    You've got some really good stuff here. Your figures have some cool poses. Mine are always so static still.

    I hope to see some updates here from you.

    Please take a look at my sketchbook

    I'm just a beginner, but I'm trying desperately to get better.
