    It's bit of a talky beginning, but we'll see how things shape up.

    @MundaneJoy, those photos are fantastic! I love the overpasses that look like god had at them with a humongous axe.

    These are some sketches I did for a production of the Tempest that never got off the ground:




    I did a bunch of costume designs too - here are a couple:




    I dredge these up because I'm thinking of doing something more with them, or at least the concepts behind them. There are more of the pages from this sketchebook on my flickr.

    these are from the OGN I am the artist for. Got the okay to post a few pages and thought it'd be nice to get some feedback from Whitechapel


    I don't think I posted this one here before. Just an update from one of my old illustrations

    Nice stuff, man. Good range, I dig the costume design sheets. Nice detail.

    Here's something I just finished for the DRAW EACH OTHER thread, for the very patient and other-worldly cute OdaElisabeth...

    @Sizer - cool! I like the recruitment poster theme.

    Final sketch from the single-point perspective series I created for the Art Tutorial thread. Damn, but my work is cartoony!

    Because I'm such a clever lad, I managed to post this in the February thread. D'oh! Try again...

    Decided to use a topical character for an exercise in shadow using a Wacom. Still on a steep learning curve with it.

    I apologise if it comes across as a bit weird. Purely chose her as there is an excess of reference material available at the moment.

    Hello, all. I'll muck up the thread a bit since we're almost at the end of the month. I hadn't done any blind-contour sketches in a while, but reading Duffield's How-To-Draw essay got me inspired. Unfortunately, I seem to be a transitory period in my artistic growth. They are half-way between crap and success. Kind of an Occam's Razor, oh God NO effect going on. I'm going to start calling these 'melties':

    sorry I melted you, Dita Parlo

    wait for the scroll:

    sorry I melted you Jean Gabin, Erich von Stroheim, Marcel Dalio -- sorry I melted you again, Dita Parlo

    I probably shouldn't go back over old territory so much, to start, but doing faces, that's where the interesting stuff is, so...

    But what's gratifying is that I fuck these up the same way I fuck up all my figure construction, which is involuntarily expanding the face and hands because I slow down for detail. I can't get the hang of constructing heads out of basic ovals. I always start drawing features halfway through, and often when I finally finish, the head's ended up too big, and I just enlarge the body to match, because it's just as well, really. It's just as well.

    I really like the details in your work. Nothing like a good ole pencil sketch
    • CommentTimeMar 29th 2009
    @HylianHearts - Thanks! I love pencils for the control they allow, but they also have the disadvantage of magnifying my weaknesses, as you don't get as many happy accidents to pretend you intended. Of course, you can always erase, but too much of that and you never finish a picture. These sketches I'm pretty happy with.

    @MrSmite - Also Thanks! That clockwork insect looks like a fantastic gift, have you given it yet? How did it go over?

    @PaulSizer - and thank you sir! Looking at your work as it pops up here and on dA has been a large motivator to me to get the gears going again. Your pieces are great, but it's the consistency and speed at which you work, and how much you clearly enjoy it, that has really been a kick in the rear for me. I'm putting my life in order to better facilitate making things every day.

    @BrianMowrey - MELTIES! That brings back memories. I used to hate hate hate blind contour because of the mess everything became, but looking at other people's blind contour drawings is fun. You don't have the knowledge of what they were trying to draw, so you only see what came out, which is often very cool. Your first melty up above, for example, is a great character. You should take that one and try realistically coloring/shading it, and see what comes out. It could be as awesome as that guy who realistically colors his child's monster drawings.

    Worked this one up last week for a shirt design.

    @OddBill: She says she loves it. After she unwrapped it she didn't let go of it for a good ten minutes.

    @BrianMowrey: Don't give up on em. I know I need to go back and do them. There's just something so incredibly horrific about spending half an hour drawing your hand and not looking at the paper.
    • CommentTimeMar 30th 2009
    @oddbill - your work is gorgeous - love the loose ink works
    @BrianMowrey - I like the melties too! I'd say you got most of the important stuff in with a great deal of character

    My response to the worrying number of requests on the DRAW EACH OTHER thread to be "Sizer-ized"...

    Fucking tabloids! Why can't they just leave us alone..?
