Hello Conceptart.org! I'm a long time visitor and big fan. I have some activity on this site, but it's pretty ancient, so I want to start fresh. The new thread will be called my Sketch and Idea area to help me become more active in the art community.
Here I will start. It is a shade-predator-demon. His body is mostly covered in hard bone like armor to protect him and also to intimidate. The hands are hooked-like because he tears out the souls of his victims. Whereas, the markings are runes that bind his soul to the shell. He levitates with a ghostly essence leaking out of the shell.
Here is a work in progress Nordic character. I'm thinking about draping a pelt-like tunic off him(somewhat hinted in texture on clothing). I tend to like this style for some reason, playing with the shapes it pretty fun too. It is sculpted with plastiline. I have a vision to make him roughly 12 inches tall.

Well here is sketch that I did today. I'm trying to break my confines as an artist. I'm aware that I have rigid methodologies that have been killing my motivation to create. One of them is that I have been imposing on myself a 'thou shalt, and thou shalt not' system of drawing. For example, I have been obsessed with the idea that I cannot visualize what I want to draw. I read of people and how so many say they are able to visualize scenes in their head like a movie when reading, drawing, or doing any creative thinking. I was so envious of this, and felt that unless I can see 100% clarity of my intention on my art, that it was not worth starting. Which seems to be pretty much always. I have been discovering that I'm not so much a visual thinker, I'm rather someone who feels what is right to me, which I accept.
Hello you got very nice works in here, I can't take my eyes of your owl and the sculpture of a man. In my opinion your ability to visualize will increase with your experience, so don't give in, just draw by the way, I think I have the same problem ;d
Thank you for the compliment. If visualization will help me be a better person, then I hope I'll be able to do it eventually. I took a look at your sketchbook. I like your idea of working studying from film/pictures. If you are familiar with Jeremy Vickery on deviant art, he studies from film too, and he's a genius. http://jermilex.deviantart.com/
