Aiming Leap n' Roll

Posted on Saturday, August 27th, 2005 under Sketches | No comments

I like this one. I think she turned out really well ... with a style different from some of the stuff I've done previously. I am really working hard on light-source shading, human physique, and giving my illustrations that extra level of detail. I think that some of turning/leaping motion I wanted to achieve is there, but it could use some improvement. I love the way the inked shadows turned out ... not everyone adds shadows right into the inking (most just use the coloring for that), but I like the way Jim Lee's inker did and I think it looks good. Jodie said it gave it a "Batman-type feel". Works for me.

Beside her figure and perspective, the biggest thing I need to work on improving is the hair. Detail is so important and there are some great guys out there putting out some great looking hair ... got to get to that point. This works for now though.

I think she would work well with some coloring, but I think for now I will just focus on enhancing my drawing/finishing style.

Hmm. Not too bad. I like the way his hair turned out. And just because Adam is afraid of eye-less zombies, I am trying to work more realistic details into my faces. Overall, I think this one came out good enough. His final pose is kinda skewed from what I had intended ... mostly because of ...

The digital sketch for this one turned out really nice. I am not sure how much I like the coloring. I think I needed more defined edges on the hair. It all seems to just bleed over the underlining lineart. Jodie doesn't like it. She says that the girl's angry look is overwhelming ... "why is ...

So I haven’t really been sleeping lately and it is doing wonders for my eyes and my hair … and by wonders, I of course mean I am tired and afraid to look in the mirror most nights/mornings.Oh and with this sketch, I was kinda trying to give a node to Willie Baronet’s fantastic style ...

Thanks to Vanessa for last night's sketch! She commissioned me (apparently through yummy chocolate-chip cookies) to draw this for a card she is making for her sis' in Pages. Yah for art by Oscar! Yah for Apple! Wheeeeee! Anyway. This one is for all you Rachel Smith fans out there. I like the eyes. And I definitely ...
