I hit sketch page 100 for the year! (Honestly, I have mixed feelings about it. Because while I know it is probably the most I sketching I have ever done in a year, it actually is nowhere close to how much I feel I should be doing.)
Anyways, not too much to show for the past two weeks. I blame holidays and my long distance girlfriend being in town....
Hey guys! A full update and replies to come in a day or so, but I just wanted to toss this up!
its a character I'm working on for a client. He is a 'rover goblin' who basically collects junk until he has a literal mountain of the stuff.
The first is my interpretation of the brief, the second is after the first round of revisions..
Nice anatomy studies. I noticed the "shortening effect" as well when I focus on muscles.
First phase of your concept looks good....any silhouettes? I like using silhouettes with little highlights to feel out the structure when making a character concept. Ninja'd that idea from Feng Zhu ...really clean drawing concept artist.
MUTHA FUCKIN WHALE!
Sweet stuff goin on here, I really like your digitals. The coloured woman in post 370 is looking good, but her nose looks a bit odd. fix that and it'll be great.

Cool goblins. My favorite is the 2nd one. Maybe, in order to sell the concept better, you could show some of the stuff the goblin is carrying around on? right now my first thought was that it was a giant egg. I was thinking something long the lines of:
Anyhow, great piece! looking forward for more.
You have a really nice balence of formal studies and concept art. Your faces are nice and expressive and your sense for anatomy along with environments seems very well rounded. I like your concepts while they are still rough and dirty though, when you tighten up sometimes it loses a little bit of its magic.
The insectman on the last page was really great before you tightened it up, though I think this might be a color theory thing. Still strong afterwards, but I find that its slightly less intriguing.
Also, don't be afraid to twist and bend the torso a little bit more.
hahahah motherfucking whale !
fuck youuuuuuuuu DOLPHIN ! and
FUCK YOU WHALE!!!
nice stuff, it iis growing stronger!
aviable for fulltime and freelance
New year, new goals, new thread.
This year, my resolution is to draw 1000 sketch pages. So far I have drawn about 115.
Here are some of my favorites.
And I suppose I could show this line up of characters I did for a freelance gig too.
This is all I'm prepared to show right now, but I have some stuff cooking for GDC.
That goblin you did was just incredbile... i could really feel his slightly mischevous nature. Reminded me of my brother
But... the highlight of this page, for me, was the MOTHER FKN SPIDER CRICKETS!!! I laughed so hard (lack of sleep didnt help), first original thing id seen al day.
digging the updates man keep them coming
have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
Hey dude! that line up of three characters you did looks really cool, lots of personality in them, and your sketch pages look great! That last character has a cool design, but I think it suffers because his face is looking a little flat compared to the rest of him. Our eye is immediately drawn to the face of a character since it is the most recognizable aspect, so spend enough time to make it readable and have personality. Keep it up!
ooo mate you have done great improvement!!!Very nice work, i like very much all the skeches and characters you are producing.
keep up the improvement
