Sketchbook Thread of Splinter

I’ve decided on working on some ideas for a tattoo. I think I have a concept I really like. I just have to make it look really good. Right now I’m working on the pose and details.

I have a long way to go I think. I feel like I should spend a lot of time on the hands, legs and feet still. After those are where I want them to be I’m going to move on the the face and cloth details and finish up with tightening up the line work.


#109

Just a little update


#110

I haven’t been drawing anything for a while now. I’ve recently been working on animation stuff in Maya. I actually miss posting on my sketchbook. So I think I’ll be back on here soon.


#111

I’ve got a few new ideas that I can’t wait to share.

stay tuned… Lol

Until then here is a quick sketch.


#112

I’ve been working on this troll for a while now.

Take a look. I’m hoping to have it done here real soon.


#113

Found a really cool image to practice with. Here is what I’ve come up with so far.

#114

Slowly moving along on the retopo process for this guy. I can’t wait to see him finished.


#115

Two new sketches to add to the collection.

This morning I thought it would be fun to practice a couple of speed sketches. I don’t really know how long these took. I just know that I tried not to put a ton of effort into too much detail. I tried to get the general look as quick is I could.

The reason for these is so that I could practice getting the proper shapes in my drawings. Such as the shape of a person’s hair, proportions, dynamic posing, etc… I’m hoping to do these enough so that I can draw without having to have constant reference (draw from my head).

Here is a portrait I started working on last night.


#118

I had a lot of fun with this sketch.


#119

Still trying to keep my sketchbook thread alive. In the famous words of Kate Winslet - The Titanic, “I’ll never let go.”

Take look at a study I just recently finished using this reference (Here).

I’ve been pretty busy with work and general life stuff, Lol. However, I have been trying to work on some art projects here and there. Here’s one of the portraits I’ve been working on.

I have a couple others to show, but I’m actually going to wait a little while longer to bring them onto my sketchbook thread. I’ll try and get closer to completion before I upload them.

Tupac Shakur Charcoal Portrait


#122

What’s up guys and gals. I just realized that I still haven’t posted the final product of my James Bond portrait, so I’m just gonna do it now :slight_smile:


#123

Next up on my list is a ZBrush model that I start from a basic sphere and I’m now trying to get a likeness of my friend. He and I are working on a project that will hopefully get completed in a couple of months


#124

It’s a new year and a fresh start. I always love the new years just because for me it always makes me feel good… hopeful for what’s to come.

I always have some sort of New Year resolution and it always involves exercise and losing weight. This year I’m dedicating to my art and my animation. I only want to keep learning, keep practicing, and keep getting better all year round.


#125

I’ve continued working on my Troll Berserker. Just finished laying out the UVs


#126

Recently I’ve been working on a caricature of myself. I started with a sketch then I moved on to Zbrush.

… more to come.

A friend of my sister’s passed away not too long ago and he had these words tattooed on his chest. My sister asked that I design a tattoo with the same words. I added the wings and posed them in a way that they would look like they are gently protecting what’s on the inside.

Right now I’m experimenting with ink and different types of paper. I have a few different size dip pens and an ink brush. They get a little messy, but I’m really enjoying using them.
