What the title says:  show off your sketches, doodles, rough work, etc.  It doesn't have to be drawings, it doesn't have to be finished, it doesn't even have to do with IDT!  Have fun, and show everyone the kind of work that you do to learn your technique, refine your style, or hone your skills.

These aren't as good as I'd like them to be because I'm too lazy to learn to use photoshop. Here you go:

Can we put my sketches back into another thread? Nobody seems to notice that these are here.

My latest.  Although it's not really that recent because it's been a while since I've drawn anything worth showing.

I totally love that sketch, Bringerofpie.  It's very...evocative.  Very spiritual.  It definitely has a lot of meaning to it.

Quick sketchy thing I made to illustrate a timetravel concept in a Doctor Who thread.

Posted as a link due to mild Series 2/Season 28 spoilers. (Episodes 2, 5 and 6, specifically, I think). Suppose there might be a couple of Series 1/Season 27 spoilers as well... But since that season has transmitted in the US...

(warning - done with a mouse with emphasis on 'quick diagram to prove a point')

Well, this is the 'sketches' thread. And this is a sketch. Allbeit done in fireworks to illustrate a concept with emphasis on speed rather than quality.

Artist Lesson Number One: Never miss a chance to show off and get critique.

(Revision: Unless the target is hostile.)

So here are some sketches I've been working on lately!

http://s79.photobucket.com/albums/j152/Whyte-Shadow/?action=view&current=LearningIsFun.jpg
Photobucket is usually where my stuff goes if it's really incomplete or still in progress. Otherwise, I send it to deviantArt, which is the best I have. Anyway, this is one of my latest sketches and is especially sketchy in this scan. It's Maria Renard from a couple of the Castlevania games.

Here's a character sheet for one of my OCs. Whenever I finish a new piece of it I stick it in. It's a lot better than the last one, trust me.

And this is comedy gold.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a look...in my sketchbook.

Sketches, hmm? Yay =) As an Artist Wannabe, I have quite a lot of those. Albeit ...hmm... loads of anthro characters on them. Pardon =)

The most recent, and/or most notable ones:

My try at an emoticon... kind of. Pencils:

Concept art for a lil' project of mine, done on OpenCanvas. I have to do that in Pencils someday, and correct all the flaws ( most notably: The overcoat looks odd and the rapier is too short, but there are more of em)... but it's good tablet practice, so I make those from time to time.

And for this sketch of a good friend of mine in Anthro version, I only can provide a link to, I'm afraid. But I really like how it turned out:

Heh, my parents got me an actual sketchbook for my birthday, among other things (I usually draw on printer paper).

So, here's the first thing I drew in it (trying to get the hang of using pencils of varying hardness):

(And yes, I realize I'm reviving an old thread.  So what?  I'm sure there must be some people here willing to share with the rest of us.)

Now, I'm not an artist, but I seem to remember that shading works best if all done in the same direction. You've done that for most of it, but there are places where you've got horizontal strokes going over vertical ones. (Course, I myself was utter rubbish at this)... And I think it's generally seen as better practice to create a solid block (but that might be pencil crayons rather than actual shading. As I say, I'm iffy at art, so something that someone told me in primary school isn't the best of things to go on), changing the hardness of pressing, and changing to other hardnesses of pencils for various stuffage, rather than leaving small gaps.

But very nice all the same, I like it, and it's at least 100x better than what I'd be able to do. (for a start, it the overall effect looks right, even if some of the details of technique don't quite [to me, anyway])

I'll admit that most of the spots where I didn't go in the same direction were done earlier in the sketch, and were more along the lines of following contours.  Still pretty poor practise, though; it's true that getting them all in the same directions works out nice, but so does cross-hatching, and following the direction of the fur, I'd imagine (though that would leave two discontinuous spots, thanks to the furry ball theorem).  I wasn't really trying any of the above, unfortunately.

Whyte, I couldn't see any of yours besides Comedic Gold (it was comedic gold, by the way).

RK, yours had very skinny arms, but you may have been going for that because he's a dog.

The person who drew the three anthros (one of them had a sword, one of them was crying), I don't remember who you are, but they were excellent.

Oh, Giz, there are multiple forms of shading, what you were thinking of is standard shading, in which you want to use very small lines that are extremely close together in one direction and blend them together.

I thought cross hatching was more an ink technique than a pencil one...

No, cross-shading works for pencil as well.
The way I was taught (in Hell school) was kinda special, as we were not allowed to use several pencils Any specific drawing had to be done with the same pencil (same hardess, it is). usually it was B or 2B.

The way to do it was to always follow the direction of what you're shading/darkening. Always start by finding the spot tat will be wite (the light on the white of the eye, for instance) and NOTHING ELSE will be white. Even the reste of the white of the eye will be a very pale grey. For the eyes (that are a sphere, and don't really have a "direction"), left to right (or right to left) while following the curve is usually the best. Same for a face, horizontally following the curves of the face.
Then, you add the shadows. Then, you can use a different direction. It will clearly show that they're shadows, this way. Start from the way light comes from and go towards the opposite way. Also, never draw the outside border of a shadow before fillign it, as the outide border is the lightest part of the shadow, and the point of origin is the darkes.

For hairs (and I'm guessing fur applies here), we were to follow the hairs individually. With the same drawing, the way of shading/colouring the hair could give the impression of messy hair or tidy one (can you say tidy for hair?), depending on whether all the hairs were going the same way or not.
Hair is REALLY hard to do, because to do it properly, you want to first draw the hairs and colour them, then add the shade on the hair, the add the sades from some hairs on others. It's long andannoying, although the result is worth it, but I wouldn't advise trying drawing a furry animal this way.

Your advice might work out fine on the head/hair head/fur (Whatever it's called), but less so on bodily fur.

Here's some of my stuff on DeviantArt.  I haven't been able to upload anything recently as a.) I'm lazy and b.) even if I weren't, the scanner isn't hooked up right now and I can't find the cables to hook it up.  Besides, there's literally no room on this desk, anyway.

Hey, you've got a drawing of Vivian, from Paper Mario :).
I've always liked her/him. it's good to see transvestite characters in kids games that are not completely ridiculous.

Vivian is probably my favorite character in that game.  Besides Bowser.

Yes, Bowser is hilarious. Especially since he's not the bad guy in that story and, well, they could have just zapped him, but they didn't and the result is great.

this looks like rather light card, what do you think?

I think the Forest fight is the best draw.  Dont get me wrong, Ill be watching the show just doesnt look like one of their better cards.
