Hello there, I'm Sweetbread! Nen's been after me to post here for a while now, but I guess I just didn't feel like I had anything worth showing. But that's stupid so anyway here you go. Critique away! Have at me!
Mostly I do traditional art (graphite, ink, watercolor, goauche specifically), but lately I've been trying to learn to digital paint so any future commentary on that would be greatly appreciated.
Here's some sketchbook stuff, mostly from the comic I'm concepting atm The Wolf Queen, and a series of Snow White illustrations I'm currently working on.
I like all your sketches a lot! Especially that that woman with the owl hood and mask. It's a really cool idea. Your designs are also very fantasy centric, I like that you use graphite, it adds charm to the style you have, and enhances the fantasy of you art.
Thanks. Yeah I'm pretty much a giant fantasy dork, but I do some scifi too. I'm really happy with my graphite work, but I have a lot of trouble transfering that same sort of liveliness and drama to my finished ink and watercolor stuff. : /
Here's some colored shit.
Thanks Cojac. c:
Anyway here I dug up some inked work. There used to be like 6 more of these but I don't know where they went. : /
Some in progress color work for a friends project.
Lovely style, but why do most of the characters have the same sullen expression?
very nice! i really like the girl in the chair, the colors look good too, and the tree drawing was amazing! i also love your sketches, they're loose sketches but the idea is captured so quickly n_n
nice looking sketchbook you have started
good costume design to very detailed and thought through, maybe just try and be a bit crisper st times with you pencils and define your edges a bit more espc if you have a lot of design features in clothing ect makes the pic easier to read.
Think if you can bring your faces up too will add more strength and dynamic to your characters too but you are well ahead of me and on the right path so keep doing what your doing.
PS the first character pic is really strong, like the feel of the pose the character in her face and the hands are animated too so she feels real. was watching some tutorial by Marko Djurdjevick discussing character design and he was stressing the importance of using hand expressions to communicate something about your character and i see some of that in that first pic so that's def a good direction to go.
Your character designs look pretty cool. Nice use of patterns and interesting visual nuances and shit. Those water color pieces look pretty interesting, too. This character is probably my favorite. Some studies to get rid of some of the awkward poses and give you a better understanding of the human body and all of that stuff is probably in order, but you won't need me telling you that around here. Sweet stuff though, man. I dig. Keep it up.
Thanks for all the comments.
Making my characters a bit more animated is definitely something I need to work on in the future. Usually I keep my sketches in the same sort of pose/expression since they're more of a costume design exercise, but it would be definitely good practice to have them emote a bit more so that my figures in my finished work don't look so stiff and robotic.
I'll try to post more soon. c:
I am learning the internet computer drawing. Another in progress color.
Wow, these are some really cool sketches. I particularly LOVE the autumn forest path. Its got a quality about it that I cannot really describe adequately. Amazing stuff! I cant wait to see more. :3
Great character designs. I love how your sketches have this old world painterly quality to them. Keep up the great work.
Working on some Snow White illustrations. Here's the huntsman gutting a boar and removing it's lungs and liver. I know how you all like that.
Some WIP. The world's most annoying sniper rifle. "YOU SHOULD AIM FOR THE HEAD!"
