I've been planning on putting up a sketchbook here for a while just to get feedback on progress. I'm constantly sketching, or, trying to get used to it. I started off my artistic career by not sketching enough. I went right to the final. Bad idea. Now I can't sketch very well at the prime of my time, so I've been sitting down and sketching like you wouldn't believe. I know that a good sketch ultimately means a better finish. So...here's to hoping I can get used to it.
Here's some recent sketchdumping. I think it should be fitting to start a sketchbook with sketches, right?
I'll be updating with works in progress and the like. Let's hope I don't abandon it...hum. ;P

Welcome. At least to the sb section
Nice studies. Keep doing them!
I'm not very fond of your colouring. Try not to save all of the lines from your sketches when colouring. As in this one http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...InTwilight.jpg
btw. I think you doubleposted, might want to get that fixed
How would I go about fixing that?Originally Posted by MorteM
Either you try to delete it yourself. Or you'll just contact a moderator (there's plenty in 'The Lounge').
Here's a link to the empty one: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=68444
I don't think it would be doing any damage lyin' around. But.. yeah
New one recently finished, not quite sure what it is besides design work for creatures.
just re-scanned the pencilwork for the image above ;P
Thanks liam, glad to see you liked some of the stuff I posted
Here's something new, drawn for a portfolio I hope to turn in for evaluation soon.
Great work...keep them coming.
A current work-in-progress. Big mechanical hand on fire ftw!
It's obviously in a very early stage but one thing I think you could of done was given it a much more, I guess "exciting", perspective. Think about how they might of shot this scene in a movie. As it is now it has a middle ground and a background, but no real foreground.
Might be a bit late to change anything but eh, something to gnaw on for the future.
Wow, beautiful stuff, love the emotion of those paints. As for the WIP I agree w/ snowfall, It needs something in the forground, maybe a big piece of scrap metal in bottm left or right?

I just might add something in the foreground, you're right. To balance it out. Thanks a lot.
More updates, some sketching and progress works.
And a comic page in-the-works:
That's all for now!
wow a lot of great stuff! some of your digital coloring needs some work(as suggested maybe try and not include the lines) but most of it is really totally nice, especially your pencil stuff stands out to me
Fighting for peace is like Fucking for virginity.
Thanks for the reply! I know that leaving lines in coloring is nearly a sin, but a lot of the coloring I've been posting is sketch work, not exactly intended to be blown out paintings.Originally Posted by Nostradamus
No, actually, besides some design work with color, I haven't. Sounds interesting.Originally Posted by Ferg
Not much new, except my tablet. I recently switched from a 4X5 wacom graphire to a 12X12 wacom intuos2. Lineart has been no problem recently, but coloring on the other hand has been.
This is a practice run with it, there's still lots more to the picture, so it's a WIP.
Just more work-in-progress.
you have exceptional skill. consider yourself +1 fan - JAG
it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..
