ForScience: thank you!
today's face study. and env.
So I finally finished my first (analog) sketchbook since I moved to Tokyo. My stay should end by April, and until then I try to draw as much as I can!
I started from 2B pencil, then changed to charcoal pencil. eventually I found pen feels much better and looks better when exported to PC.
I'll be surprised if the forum takes this much image attachment all at once.
That's a huge sketchdump : D I really like your character designs and you're environments are really strong too. So yea keep working man

Everything is permitted
Very cool stuff here in this sketchbook! I liked this last sketchdump, keep working on the speedpaintings and figure drawings
art is never finished, only abandoned~Leonardo da Vinci
Papu: thanks! I'm doing more drawings on the second sketchbook!
udonhead: nice feedback! I haven't tried master study yet. It'll be a good practice for rendering. thanks!
Panshi:wow, thanks! yours gave me lots of inspiration, so thanks!
ezekrialase: thanks! as I do more speed painting I feel I'm too slow esp. in environment stuff. I'll work more on that.
2 paintings I did today. practicing sketching with perspective.

I think I'm gonna start another WIP close up post series.
Long time ago I did this sketch with pencil
My husband liked it so much he suggested to make it into a party scene,
combining other sketches I made around the time.
So I decided to rework on the anatomy of the characters a bit
Since then I've been struggling to get the comp right,
and I think...I finally got it...
Some features are different, and the overall feeling of this
will be cuter than the original one. Also the style will be line based illustration,
something like Sean Murray's stuff.
I like lines, and I haven't done this kind of rendering for a while...
I'm excited to get started!
That looks promising! There's a few strange tangents you might want to look into, like the wing's elbow of the dragon thing with the small of the back of centaur girl, the wizard alien's staff knob with the window whatchamacallit and maybe also spider leg girl's tail with the door's edge. Also i wonder if it'd spruce up the composition if spider leg girl stood a little taller than six leg girl. But hey, nitpick nitpick you know ...
nice sketches man, keep it up !
Badly with english
your work has a really nice elegance to it- even the creepy bone creature-guys.
It works really well with the fantasy theme - I likey
That's probably the dumbest thing to say, but I really love your sketching technique (and of course the more finished work, too). So vivid and dynamic.
Voskoboy: thank you!
LeaderOfZombies: Glad you liked it!
jedininjaman: thank you for the comment! it's always hard to decide where to crop...I'll keep your point in mind for next work!
Rhubix: thank you! it's really encouraging to know someone like my stuff
kopfscheu: thanks! I think I'm getting better as I draw in analog media more
So here's the final version of the tea party!
While staying in Tokyo I was lucky enough to get some freelance illustration jobs from Japanese developers. Above is the set of paintings I did for Bahamut Greed. It's been interesting experience working with Japanese producers...their custom and culture are totally different. They are always extra polite, replies quick, but somehow tending to have very loose concept in contract. Oh, and when you sign a contract in this country, you actually authorize it by sealing it. Everyone in Japan has a seal with their name on it for this purpose. I thought it's a pretty cool custom.
Anyways, I'm coming back to the US in June due to my family situation (again). I'll be working as a freelance artist for a while...till I run out of jobs or savings, haha. Wish me luck! (psst if you are a director who's looking for a freelance artist to hire I'm available starting June!)
Grate to see this osomness. and loving thous sketches also.
Love the sketches! really cool linework. great face studies
yeah the improvement is amazing during a short period of time - makes me wanna work
Hair Fish: thanks!
kalevy: hope this helps!
z01ks: drawing time!
CraneWife13: thanks for the observation. I was also struggling in the first sets of analog sketches to find the right medium. I found a specific ball point pen has the best flow of ink and line thickness that works well for my method.
