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 4

And yet, more sketches.

21-26
Lots of style testing along with a few ink drawings (one of which is of my dog, Misty.)
16-22
Warmup sketches and alternate pencil grip tests on the left with some poses.
Page 1-3
Far left are some early mechanical pencil drawings where I experimented with fine lines and less under-sketching. The rest is a mixture of dragons, marvel comic characters, and more random stuff. The far right mask is just a comic panel I thought was cool and copied down to see if I could keep the proportions.

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.

Thanks for reading,

Some various sketches from my sketchbook with blue and normal graphite. They weren’t all on the same page, of course, I had to stitch the images together. If all my sketchbook pages looked like this…

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.

Two more sketches are coming later today.

Cintiq 13HD for Christmas! (Animation)

(Let image load, or just click on it to speed up the process)Anim Face test (small) 2This is a project I decided to do to get a little more comfortable with my new Wacom Cintiq 13HD, which I was fortunate enough to receive from my grandparents for Christmas (THANK YOU!!!) I really enjoy the ability to draw on a surface. It significantly naturalizes my drawing style when doing digital work, letting me stay loose for sketches and precise for inking and other tasks. Not to mention the admantages of having two screens. I’m really thankful.

This animation took me all day of straight working, and was done solely in Sketchbook Pro. Here is the animation timing and layout sketch I did using the flip book feature.face animation layout

The finished was not as smooth, unfortunately. I have a lot to learn about animation. But I do love it when the pen goes in his mouth, Looks better than I imagined.

Here’s the face concept sketch.

Special thanks to all my family and friends who allow me to do all this stuff through buying me equipment and encouragement. I can’t say how much I appreciate you guys.

As many of you have noted, it has been a while since I have last posted. The reason for this is that I have been receiving a constant stream of jobs lately, and don’t really have the time and energy to dedicate to a decent post. I would post some of my jobs, but the content attached to some of them may not be ready to be released upon the works finish. However, I have been doing a lot of random sketches and such in my sketch books lately, with a good ‘ol pencil and paper. Nothing good enough for me to comfortably post though. I’m basically saying that I have not forgotten, and there is much I will be posting in the  future.

Now, excuse me while I get sick on corn chips.
