It's crazy to see that I have 245 posts on this thread lol. I haven't posted on here in a while, but I also haven't really drawn all that much. It's hard to do when most of your classes are anything but sketching.... Curse you 3D art classes. At least I'm learning about Photoshop some more, I guess. I have a really cool video game class too! Great stuff.
Anyways, enough about my life and more about my work lmao. Some of the stuff I'll be posting here is a couple months or weeks old.
The difference 15 minutes can make.
I was trying to do studies to get better with torsos and figured that I should look at the references longer than just doing 30 second sketches. I think the difference is quite remarkable; I learned a lot more from it.
A couple more anatomy sketches.
Just some other anatomy sketches, trying out some backs.
Fantasy Map (Amall)
I've been doing some worldbuilding in my spare time for some D&D one-shots and ended up drawing a better map than the one I originally conjured up. This one's unmarked and kind of dumb, but I'm still proud of it. If you can't see why it's dumb, it's because the river is technically flowing southeast to northwest rather than north to south. I think the Nile river does that, but it's still pretty rare.
I'd drawn Mirrored Spider before for the whole Spidersona challenge thing, and because I just finished the Spider-Man game on PS4, I felt compelled to try out doing a full-body sketch lol. First Spider-Man pose I've done since I was in middle school.... I was so much more confident about making mistakes then. I just get frustrated now. Funny how things change.
This is basically a cartoonified version of a superhero me. Before all of this COVID-19 stuff hit, I was in a D&D campaign about superheroes, and my hero was (uncreatively) Sentinel. Sentinel had the ability to form shields exactly like the Sentinel Titan in Destiny 2. Ironically, the name for her was from something completely different. I forgot that the Titan sub-class was called that lmao.
I had a lot of trouble coming up with an appearance for her, but I eventually realized it's because I saw myself as the character more than anything. When we were taking out bad guys and saving people and making the dumb mistakes I made (MOSTLY because of bad rolls. I roll a lot of nat 1's
), it felt like it was literally just me. Which might sound dumb, but it makes sense to me. I think we usually project part of ourselves into our characters or become someone we want to be. It felt special to have someone that was just plain old me. Well, with superpowers. But you get the gist.
Another Amity Dvorjak doodle
I was doodling in my sketchbook a couple days ago and ended up with my favorite Amity sketch to date. This one captures who she is more than my previous ones, I think. My favorite little tiefling cleric
Brayunmar Dolvisal doodle
I don't think I've posted a Bray sketch yet. She's my newest D&D character in use, a Goliath barbarian. If you watch Critical Role, she's a blend between Grog and Yasha with some of my own stuff mixed in. One of my favorite things about her is the little stuffed bear she protects with her life named Basher. If anyone so much as looks at him the wrong way, she's not gonna be too happy.
I think that's it for now. It's really not enough for 4 months, I should be doing this more often then I am. Haven't quite found the energy to, I guess.
