Gosh, ink portraits are HARD. But you did great with it - maybe lost yourself a bit too much on detail. It shows that you're more comfortable with linework (like me), and you're great there, but don't be afraid to go bold and simple with deep shadows that show form. The life studies in the previous page are great and as they're gonna get better I feel this kind of stuff will get better along with them.
I love your cartoony work! Your lines are really very crisp, the car and the tree are very good. Your characters are expressive but I think you would be pretty great with IDW, you are that precise.
Also the Audrey Hephburn-like lady you've drawn next to the shoes is gorgeous
Very nice lines, what software do you use?. I'm trying to get nice lines with photoshop but they come not as clean as yours.
New decade. Need to make something.
At last I tried going pure digital. Saw how my idol Sean Galloway goes about it, so I tried it out myself. And it definitely has it's perks.
Anyway, enough talk about good artists, lets talk about me.
Planning something larger with all of this, but this is all I have so far. I ran myself into a corner. I have no clue what to do with the left character's leg.
I realized the underdrawing made it too short, so I measured his right leg and then tried out the same pose with correct length. Looked terrible. Mirrored the right leg. Same result. I'm stumped with a good way to go about this.
nice, very solid i like. I see you use solid colours and their shadows, you try highlights as well?
You've got some really lovely sketches here. The pencil work has a nice semi 'scruffy' look while still being really neat/clean. I've seen a lot of sketchbooks where the form is obliterated by feathered, scratchy lines.
Also dig your digital work. Has a nice 'vector' feel. Not sure what program you're looking in. Only thing I'd keep an eye on, esp with the digi pieces, is composition. You've got such nice ideas, that a little attention to line placement would be a big bonus. Biggest thing to watch is tangent lines both in overall composition and within each figure.
Happy New Year too
Lost my tablet pen two weeks ago. Gotta find it.
EDIT: Also, I've been thinking of self publishing a small amount of small books full of sketchbook mess to sell at conventions. How long should it be?
