    Reptil's Sketchbook

    Uhmm...HI!, this is a great place beyond my expectatives, i've a long self-taught way on my artist life, and in that period of my life, i've that hunger that seek us in the middle of a sleepless night(one of my many sleepless nights), and i'm not refering at a normal hunger, is that hunger for knowledge, i knew that i've improved over the years of my existence, but there's have to be more, and then i found this monolith of aplications and fellow artists, dear bethrens, please step ahead on my humble thread and do not hestitate on leave a critique or comment

    welcome

    Well let's begin, since i want to tell you all where i start to get serious let's show one of my best and oldest sketches: A demon of sorts, the file says White Demon, but that will be pretty obvious isn' it?

    It dates on January 2005, and still looks like i had some more or less notions of where i wanted to go, i soon will post some best worked out sketch with all the knowledge i had gathered in these 2 years, see ya around.

    a revamped version, aplicating all the knowledge about proportions and a bit of common sense (those chicky legs will never lift a ribcage of those proportions in my late design, and so it is original, i place something on it, hope didn't look offensive to your eyes fellow comrades), here it is, come on, i like hear your comments and critics a like, and if like creatures wait for another design that i sure worked hard, also i have search for knowledge in the internets, throught wiki, even if the rumors says that is not a viable source...

    so here it is, i'd have a problem of scenic panic when i show my doodles, that's why i ask kindly for feedback in order to know if i've to change or continue(i hardly encourage to hispan-dwelling artists to give critics on our idiome, to comprehend and advance), also i will try some doodles on Still's and some excercises about perspective(my worst of my skills).

    Hello,
    i believe that if you have the idears, everything else is just a matter of hard work and willpower. As my teacher tell all the students in my class, drawing is a basic craft everyone can learn.
    You should post more and just put it out there, stagefright will eventually disapear.
    about your drawings, i like the first one, it looks more dynamic and the pose is more believable. I'd like to see a more complete rendering of it
    keep at it,
    Cheers

    thanks AndreasT, to be honest, i cannot remember when i stop to draw more vivid stuff, i always end up doing a pin-up or a half assed sketch, but i decided to shake my laziness once and for all, also i have a question for the Admin's, is ok to post some fanart?, because i have plenty of it

    Meanwhile, i'm gonna post a draw where i show one of my best skill i have(to me of course), Ink, shading and contrast, this specialy, it is an original, so is watermarked again i ask pardon if this looks offensive, this draw dates on 2005, i'm(as always) gonna revamp it to see how much i advanced, also i'm gonna try a technique that i've developed and i hope that works on creature and monster designers that are getting started on concept art, if you look at my last 2 doodles you'll notice that they're based on some kind of existed animal(or a mix of them) so my point is that i'm gonna separate it in the animals that i based(thing that, when i draw'em, i had do it uncounsciously) to also practice drawing from life, since i live in a city theres no plenty of zoos(and if they're, they're to far of my capital), so i will take on pictures from the internets(blessed, blessed internets), i hope i'm doing correctly and i will try to capture some of the wild life of my surrounds

    too long for a chit-chat isn't, so sad that i'm not this talkative on real life

    so, here there are, enjoy

    Hallo!

    here we go again, this time a mecha, check out those overrated pistons!, it sure will give it a movility as a snail!, i really wonder how it can stay still without crump down at any second..well, i bring to you 'nother oldie, it date back to 2002, and it is bad polished due to i have to clean up the marging book marks(haha, sp?), but i bring it here because it seems my old stuff is better than my actual one, haha talking about irony when i thought i was "getting" better, again is a original, so it's watermarked.

    I encourage thee to critique and/or comment, i really apreciate it

    Thanks for dropping by my SB, returning the favor now.

    I like the 1st and 3rd of your drawings. The 1st one has a good pose, as if it's stalking someone. I really like the way you did the 3rd drawing, with the ink and all, and the concept itself is pretty cool too.

    I think the 2nd drawing is a little stiff, and it's pretty flat compared to the 1st drawing. The mecha's design seems cool, but it's hard to see what is what. At this point all parts of the mecha are all drawn with the same line thickness, so you don't really have parts jumping out and creating depth, and points of interest, such as a clearly defined head for instance.

    Just keep doing what you're doing, and you should try some anatomy studies too. If you know human and animal anatomy and combine those two, your monsters will look very realistic.

    Good luck!

    Your stuff looks like it would hurt me! It's THAT good. The first monster looks awesome. I would love to see it coloured.
    The gangsta guys are cool. The one to the left has sort of wierd highlight places, but he still looks cool
    The machine looks complicated. What would it be for?
    I'de like to see some of those stills sometime

    hey that's true, i've placed some very menacing things here, and another true thing is that, i tend sometimes to doodle some cute stuff too, i will post as soon as i find if i can post some fan art, wich will be a shame for me, i guess, because no artist is made of just fanart

    Yeah, the gangsta style is very present in some of my "serious" stuff, and the light it's odd becouse i tried to ink it with a very ink-droping fine-point marker, so yeah next time i will try to hit without adding to much pressure

    and the mecha....well...it was some kind of ya know, animal-zord thing, it was a great idea back in my young days, now i look at it and well, i guess i just have to work it out heh.

    still i'm pummeling myself to draw more realistic stuff(hence my decision of draw from some animal pictures), i will try to end'em up soon, maybe i should just try to sketch'em inestead of bring a exact copy of them...

    stay tuned, and thanks for the comment...

    Sorry for the delay, the time when i was about to respond'cha my computer crashes.

    hehe, to tell the truth, the 1st one is a remake of the same guy, which it seems that a good pose tells more than a inane being pulled from a questionable mind, with obviously, questionable origins.

    deciphering your advice it comes to my mind that i've to add shades right?, well, is pretty logic, maybe i will try to add more perspective, in order to place the shading in the right direction, thanks for the help!, the mecha was a inmature try to show something that it could be constructed(thing that i tend to do in every technical aspect of my doodles), hence the out of the concept design, that, most of us artist we tend to figure, your words bring me the idea that i should add again more shading and perspective

    this is weird, i can comprehend my lack of prespective but why my lack of shading, contrast is my thing, i suppose that everything is linked, whithout good perspective theres no good shading and then comes the flat design

    thanks from the bottom of my heart to share your advices, i will try to accomplish'em(including the anatomy studies) soon and then correct my mystakes.

    thanks again

    Sorry for the delay, i will tend to quote every comment to make sure every effort of help will be noticed.

    Hmm...i think i make a good choice to start my sketchbook, it was a rush thing(trying to look like the ones from the media, ya know, comics, book pictures[...]) and well, i guess without noticed it, i achive a truly wild pose, i will try to back study my old work, in order to fix my future work

    hehe, funny thing when we seek an order of things, knowing that maybe our own origin is a true disorder of causes, leaded by a unseen force out of comprehension...

    but hey is just my point...

    Thank you so much for the help, i know i quoted you on my 3rd draw post, but this one will make sure you know it...

    thanks again
