Sketch Dump 5

These are going to be the last drawings from my sketchbook for a while.

Page 13-14 (Golem)
This is a character I made based on a random prompt from conceptstart.net. I started with the head (bottom, right), made a silhouette thumbnail, then drew the rest (left)
Misc poses
(left) Random figures from imagination. (right) Figures from reference. When I do figures like these, I focus on the action, not the anatomy. So I use quick, loose lines. I also grip my pencil differently.

And here’s a little something from my vacation these past two weeks. I was messing around in a vector program called Affinity Designer, and decided to composite the character into a random photo (not mine, CC0)

Sketch Dump 3

More sketches for anyone who’s interested. Not much explanation needed, other than this first page, which is a character based on a voice done by comedian Tim Hawkins in his podcast Poddy Break. You can find the introduction to this character in episode 35 around 01:01:06. The character’s name is Crappaw and he likes to squeeze tennis balls.  CrapawOther than that, these are just a combination of quick anatomy/pose sketches and a bunch of random characters for fun. Everything here was done with a mechanical pencil.Page 10-12Page 3-9

I will be posting more of these sketches soon, as I have a ton of these pages already scanned and didn’t think it would be good to fit everything into one post.

Silhouette Sketches 3

sil-sketches-final

So, this is my third sheet of silhouette sketches (Here’s a link to the first and second). This page contains a lot less as far as concepts, but I polished them up a little more than in the past, especially the mech, as you might have noticed.

A quick note on Inktober; I did quit after the first 17/31 days, which is unfortunate, but I was able to take on more freelance work as a result. Unfortunately I can’t show any of it yet, except for this logo I did a couple months ago, which never quite made it onto the blog.

logo-showcase

I’ve been using it as a kind of example for others wanting prices and stuff when they come to me for a logo.

And that’s about it. Remember to like if you liked and follow if you want to see more. Feel free to comment as well, I appreciate all feedback.

Inktober: Week 2

Week 1

I just finished last weekends drawings last night, so yeah; that’s why this is late.

Day 11: “Perhaps”

Day 14-15: More head sketches

Day 16-17

Ideally I would have posted this on Sunday, but school and freelancing got busy and I was having trouble deciding what to draw.

I’m not particularly proud of any of these, but I think the way day 11 came out is interesting. It was probably the first time that I used my thicker pens and didn’t regret it.

Also, the last four days, which I did last night, are (partially) inked with my new Copic 0.03 tip pen. It’s really nice for details and small drawings at about half the size of my previously smallest pen. I wish I had it when I did day 12 to maybe make some grass or something to fill in the ground.

Anywho, that’s it for this week. Thanks for reading, and make sure to like and follow if you enjoyed my content.

Thanks,

Sniper/Blizzard Illustration

Sniper

This was a random sketch, which I ended up inking, then messing around with the colors and textures. It still looks a little plain to me though. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how I could turn the sketch into a finished illustration. This was as close as I could get.

Here’s the original sketch:Sniper sketch

Here’s a couple more sketches. See the last sketch here: https://jumpingmonkeyart.com/2016/04/27/creepy-bearded-guy-sketch-new-site-preview/

Creepy Bearded Guy Sketch | New site preview!

Creepy beard_1

I don’t like these pictures as much as the real thing, but whatever. There’s probably something wrong with the way I lit it.
