My journey to get sharper with digital work, and to stay sharp with it through observational sketches from photo reference, branching off into caricature and imagination works. Newest works on the last page, of course!

Jack, Locke, and Hugo, with some Rachel McAdams guest starring (dun!)

Good stuff man. Im trying to learn how to paint on the computer as well.
Though the bamboo forest is dense, water flows through it freely.
Thank you Martell.Joshua, good luck on your journey!
Today's are Juliet and Sawyer. I got off to a late start today and spent way more time on these than I thought I would.
These were both pretty quick ones. Richard's is a little off and Kate's is exaggerated, but they came out pretty well.
Only one LOST sketch today, very quick one, our man unstuck in reality- Desmond Hume!
Today's is the ever treacherous Ben.
Got behind on posting. These were the rest of the LOST drawings I did right up to the finale, doing 2 per day. All in Alias Sketchbook.
These were most of my one-a-day warmups and sketches after LOST ended. I clamped the time on some of these down to about an hour, but some ended up being closer to 2.
most of them i try to keep around an hour, but for some it was 2, and for a couple like sawyer, it was closer to 3.
Thanks for the brushstroke advice. For almost all of them I was using Alias Sketchbook, so my choices were quite limited. I just switched to using Photoshop for these starting with Kat Dennings today, and I was experimenting a little more with hard brushes now that I have more options, but it's definitley something I need to explore more.
Hey, Your stuffs looking really cool, can tell who each and every character is just by looking at them. Thought I agree with Jackpot, and that last picture looks much better (using hardbrushes on that one?)
Keep posting want moarrrrrrrrrrr
Thanks, Corza. I was starting to use a few hard brushes on her, but for today's warmup I decided to experiment more with them, and found a good one of Bruce Campbell via Evil Dead 2 with lots of awesome shadow and blood shapes in the face to lay into. I kept this one real sketchy, as i'm still getting used to the hard brushes. I might come back to this later once some more of my portfolio is done.
Again behind on posting. tsk tsk.
Some of the more refined ones took close to 2 hrs, some of the realy quick and dirty ones are 45 min. I've been doing a lot more with hard brushes in PS, and playing with opacity.
Awesome persistence, keep it up~! I think this is a great way to get a better grasp of digital painting and facial structures at the same time. I should take a page out of your book!
Thanks, Amarok. It's definitely good practice.
Today's is a quick 45 min. of Falkor from the Neverending Story. - Photoshop
again, from The Neverending Story, which i'll be doing characters from all week.
This one was fun to do, taking somewhere between 45 min and an hour.
Atreyu from the Neverending Story. 45 min. Not really feeling this one today, but good to work the kinks out.
45 min warmup of the Rockbiter today. feelin better about this one than yesterday
Thanks to an online competition, I fell behind on daily sketches. This is the Gmork, the last of my Neverending Story Sketches. My next batch will probably be Casablanca.
This week's sketches are (mostly) Casablanca with a dash of something else.
Stared it off with Bogart's Rick, but just saw Predators, and decided to do one for that before drawing last night's Claude Raines-Louis Renault.
Just WOW! Was a pleasure watching your works...
@ Nenad- Thanks, it's a pleasure to do them!
@Chr. Steam - Thanks, I had a lot of fun with the LOST drawings.
Today I decided to push some caricature a bit, and move beyond just observational work, so here's Paul Henreid's Victor Laszlo from Casablanca.
Next one will probably be a caricatured Peter Lorre.
Last one of the day. Next will likely be a pretty straightforward Ingrid Bergman. Really tried to push this one's features. Nite, all!
Today is a straightforward Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergaman). Tomorrow will be Sydney Greenstreet, followed by Major Strausser, and then I'll wrap up Casablanca week with Sam.
A little behind on posting the Strausser, which was from last night. Just finished up the Ferarri one. I'll be wrapping up Casablanca week with Sam.
A caricatured Dooley Wilson's Sam caps off Casablanca week. Next up... I haven't decided yet.
Playing around with some new brushes, came up with a Louis Armstrong, and afterward, started off Spaceballs week with a caricatured Rick Moranis' Dark Helmet.
