Sketchbook Thread of Splinter


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.


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

stay tuned… Lol

Until then here is a quick sketch.


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

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


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



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


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.


I had a lot of fun with this sketch.


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


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:


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


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.


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


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.


Started working on the shoe for my self caricature. This is just the base mesh that I will later take into ZBrush for detailing.


Here is what I have so far with the rest of the caricature.
