Lammakian_ #DrawCember Sketchbook thread


Hi there,

I’m a little late to the party and I’m still not on social media, but I’ll work on that later. In the meantime, here is my first drawing :

And a little close up, just for fun :

I see that there are already some great stuff everywhere ! Hoping to see more from you, guys !


love the mood this has. Makes me think of space / aliens for some reason haha


Really cool style, looking forward to the rest of your thread!


Thanks ! That was actually what I was aiming for ! :slight_smile:

Thank you so much ! I’ll do my best to get through this challenge ! :thumbsup:
Good luck to you all !


Nice drawing!


Day 2 - Santa shares a meal with his little elves :

Got a little too greedy and in the end, it looks nothing like what I wanted.:sad:
I’ll do something much simpler next time !


I still think it looks great :).

Thank you all for you kind comments ! It really helps me keep going ! :bounce:

Day 3 - Make a wish

I’m kind of a grandpa when it comes to social media. I’m still trying to figure out the twitter thing XD
But rest assured, if/when I’m on instagram, I’ll share the link !


Love your stuff!


Your works are very atmospheric! Love colors! <3


These are amazing! Do you do comics?


Great pieces Lammakian! From composition to environment and design.


I’ve noticed a sort of ‘grain’ texture in all your images - is this something you’ve created yourself to use? I really like that it brings all your work together and shows off your style.


Now that you say that… seems a water color paper texture…


Well spotted ! :wink:
This is a very simple trick that I like to use when I have to work fast / when I’m short on time.
It’s just a 50% grey layer, with the blend mode set to Overlay. Then I use a noise filter with gaussian blur. Also, I typically throw in another layer of the merged image, blur it a little, with the blend mode set to Lighten and a very low opacity. (To top it off, there’s also a little bit of chromatic aberration)

It’s cheap but I like it. :blush: And like you said, it really brings everything together !

Thank you ! As a matter of fact, I actually did a little bit of comics. The project is on hold but you can read a few pages here : Les aventures de Cybergirl. It’s all in black and white though…

@Sutansan, @hokutonokatani, @POSEIdooN : Thank you all for your comments ! It really motivates me ! Also, I haven’t had the time to comment on all your threads but I’ll do so when I can ! There are so many great works everywhere ! :bounce:


Wow! Thanks for the tip. I’ll try that “trick” :slight_smile:
Liked your comic, seems you have some influences of Osamu Tezuka… great stuff




I love these! They look like stills from an animation :love:
