View Full Version : David Edwards - Sketchbook | character designs

12 December 2009, 08:08 AM
Hi people ..

I've been working in the creative biz for about ten years now and must confess to neglecting the sketchbook for pretty much most of that time! Most people know me for matte paintings and that takes up most of my concious day. So in the last few weeks i started sketching again, and to my surprise found i was producing some pretty crazy arss ideas! .. hell that's what ten years of neglect must do!

So i can't stop myself, and i want to share my work as i go. Hopefully you find them interesting :)

A lot of the work i draw, really is random and off the bat, sometimes i dont even know what im drawing until its done.

I was going to pull together 30 or so sketches and get them printed into a comic book for fun. Hence the photoshop backgrounds etc ... I've uploaded the raw sketches to my website: just click the pages back and forth ...

I'll continue to add as and when ..

I really like seeing this side of your work. I think that the PS background really add to it and I dont think it would be bad to get some of these printed :).

My fav is the Elerus. Its a winner!

Some could use some highlights to beef 'em up a bit.
