Hey people of middle earth. these are quick sketches, the knight guy thing is like 5 min or something and the dude jumping down is like 10 min and the last dude is like 15? theyre quick. if you watch an industrial designer rock out a couple of vehicle designs in less that 20 min its impressive and someone like scott robertson can make a lil five min car sketch look incredibly accurate and sick looking. what im tryin to say is…. if you want to be a character artist you should be able to do the same! you gotta work your way up to that level of art and use guys like scott as a goals or imaginary competition and you'll surely grow faster! speed comes with time and practice, you gotta start slow before you can work fast. if you are applying to concept portfolio, honestly, pose the freaken character designs! make em look badass!! leave the static stuff for later for the turn around sketches and costume designs. but the initial sketches should show off the character and your skillsssss n designing will be more fun as a result!!!! so if you're applying for intern this year gimme a shout and send me some stuff cuz these were redesigns and feedback sketches i did for some friends of mine applying this year! i'll help however i can n if i have time for a lil doodle. Alsoooo sorry for the lack of updates, been busy…. however, maybe a few speed sketches like this would be coooo??? oh and i noticed i barely have any followers but yet so many hits on posts :s you secret followers gimme a shout out sometime ya? lemme know you're alive and kickin or i wont be too enthusiastic bout postin stuff up on here

The earthworm jim i did cuz i was working on something that i wanted to try out a retro color pallette so thats where that warm up came from. the little girl was just one of the many warm ups i do in the morning before actually working! most come out like crap which is why i only post one or two everynow and then lol The sonic wasn't a warm up it was just something that i found on my desktop and decided to finish
Painted this up Last night. finally made it to season 5! as i said in my previous post, i didnt want to watch this show cuz i thought it was gonna be all derpy jokes that i wouldnt have enjoyed... after watching the first few episodes i really really hated the show. but then ...The Magic Maaaaannnnnn appeared!!!! Changed my freaken life forever and now i love the show. the characters got really funny and the story is great! fav characters are juice goose, bmo, jake and the magic man. who are yours??
5 min sketchin..i usually do a couple of random drawings in the morning to loosen up before working.... most of em are on paper but every now and then i run outta lead and this happens lol i kept these fairly loose and unfinished especially bottom right cuz ive gotten requests for some progress work, so thats kinda what it looks like within a few seconds. anyways, missing my little nephew and niece lately, thats where the top left kid came outta
oh on a side note, imma be taking down random sketches every so often to clean up my blog so if theres stuff missinnnn oh wells
Nothing special, just some tonals.... found myself to be extremely slow... havent been able to go. i think ive went three times this whole semester and like 15 times in total last semester?? :( these are ten min one from this afternoon and the other is from like two weeks ago :s
This pin-up was done for UDON 's Artist Pin-up book: Vol 1 which saw its debut at Kaigai Manga Festa in Tokyo last month. <- purely ripped that sentence straight from Chamba lol (his pinup is awesome, go see!)
hope you likess!
hope you likess!
Those two min gestures at the top i decided to do a lil more caricatured/cartoony cuz i got the worst mark on my last LD portfolio because the teacher likes cartoon stuff :( i personally dont like this cartoon stuff, i go to life drawing to improve my drawing skills... not to draw the characters i draw in my sketch book. I also think the students that take their life drawings home and work on them digitally or wtv is very pointless? its confusing, like whats the point lol if you wanna cartoon the models then why not do it on the spot! nuff said :3
