I guess everyones definition of Sketch is different. Nice Stuff Riq.
I guess I would call these ink sketches. Mainly cuz I'm going at them to see what happens.
I'll post some pencil stuff to.
right now, I'm trying to improve my understanding and execution of inked stuff..
I call'em sketches because of how ridiculously sloppy they are in some areas.

No, I mean to me sketch is just a few lines. I call what you do preliminary layouts. Maybe why my stuff looks the way it does. I generally don't go beyond the scribbles I do. I just go right to finished pencil. You should add those line study drawings you posted earlier.
What I might do, when possible, is scan my pencils before the inks.
I've meant to do that quite a few time, but just plain forgot in the rush to get finished.

I always scan them just incase I screw up the inks i can just print em and lightbox if needed.
Oops. I did it again.. Forgot to scan pencils.. But.. they weren't all that anyway.
I've been working with a 4h lead, and then tightening up with an HB lately. I like it much more than blueline-because blueline is so hard to erase.
I've also pickup an old technique I used to do, but got back to it after seeing a video about Adam Hughes technique. It's just using a kneaded eraser to leave just a trace of your previous drawing, and then sketching over that again, and repeating as much as necessary.

I've always done that. lots of light sketching then harder lines erase and use a softer lead to finish.
You're scrunching the faces a bit.

I love me some GALAXY RANGERS!
Justice- Thanks for the heads up about the face.. I'll keep an eye on that.

I enjoy that thor sketch.
Nice to see art from you riq.
I posting more "sketchy stuff". This is mainly a backlog of doodles I've done recently. Some are pretty fresh, done yesterday, and some have been sitting around for a few weeks.

Beautiful stuff all around man!
Here are some concept ideas for a comic proposal I'm working on.. And the other is an abandoned sketch of Red Sonja.

You've gotten really blocky in your approach. Too much distance between chin and lips makes the faces look scrunched.
i think it may be more that theres too little distance between brow and mouth.
This stuff looks great though, makes me wish I drew more.
I had a large cardboard sheet that you had doodle up and left at Johnson before I worked there that I kept for the longest time, till it got lost in a move. Rey didnt know why I wanted to keep that thing... This stuff is why...
I might be making the nose a little too short..?
On some of my character designs, I'm deliberately pushing things around; I want each character to have some "personality"..
In life people features are all over the place as far as proportions are concerned. And I hate when every person in a comic looks like the same head with different hair and eyes.
Thanks for noticing Justice.. this really helps me review my work!

I only mention it because when you have a huge chin and small length nose it forces the face into an almost worms eye view when you aren't intending it to. Like this one. I think the best initial approach to head shape is the shape you want the head to be. Then it's about adding features. Look at how Buscema did it in that How to book.
two pages form my sketchbook.
One is a concept that I'll be finishing up pretty soon.

Me likes. Stretch them bodies a bit more or they start to look apelike.
More detail Justice..
Stretch the legs, the torsos?. Tell me whassup..
Thanks for the crits..
I think the arms are a tad long, have the hands line up a little more around the crotch, not so much mid/low thigh like marvel.
08-20-2007, 01:08 PM
The arms are either too long or the legs too short or maybe the torso too squat. I'll let you decide because you're the one who has to make it fit.;)
But to me it's partly the torso but mostly the legs.

I really dig the etched woodcarving type style that you have going on in some of these, and that you used in that Dr. Strange piece. Makes me think of Albrecht Durer who I've always admired.
I agree with Justice about the squatness of some of your figures.
Sketch I used for a final illo.
just a doodle
Some character designs for a story I'm working on.
Test image to work out some techniques for some artwork I'm doing for a RPG book

Lacey's pretty sweet. I would like to see that as a finished illo.
