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.

And something that actually got finished.

Mad good, but I'd change the girl's hair in the second one.

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!

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])
