busy day today, don't had much time for warming up, so it's simple and quick. (20 min for all)

(Should I rather share this as an image, or a link?)

I wanna start a self portrait of myself as it's been many years since I last made one, and I could benefit from an internet face that isn't so specific to one clique of the internet.

So I just took like nine pictures just to try to get ideas....  :crazy:

I guess this is kind of a color key for a comic panel I did yesterday.

Also, yeah, my sketches are all digital in Photoshop.
I use the stumpy pencil brush a LOT.
You can get it here:  http://stumpypencil.blogspot.com/2009/11/return-of-stumpy-pencil.html
I highly recommend getting it, it is so choice.

Great for sketching, but also painting too.  Nice blocky brush.

Also the watercolor one is very nice too.

you can actually see both brushes used to great effect in their blog banner.
(although I use the watercolor one a lot cause it gives a nice uniform texture all around.)

I use a tablet as well, which accounts for all the line variation.

I have been experimenting with making isometric game maps for a tactical game in blender. Simple stuff in the realm of 3D, but good learning none the less.

@lijj: tbh the designs aren't made by me. Those are art Nouveau furnitures, I had lying around in my reference folder.
I am doodling a lot of stuff, just to see how it's made and how the style works. Sketching is for me mainly a practice of getting things in my head, basically short notes on how something looks.
For sketching I have usually a topic and doodle stuff for that topic, or I have a subject and draw it out of different views.
first practice is mainly for learning styles and details
second practice is for improving on proportions and inventing things in space.

busy day again -.-
just doodled some random skulls, weren't really carefully, concentration dropped quickly, the ones on the right side are somewhat alright.

I see Cyangmou.. good practice to draw such objects.
The skulls.. I like the angle supine one in the second row.

I penciled a stone gargoyle type design. I may use it as one of the heraldic motifs in my collection of house sigils. Took about 25 minutes(cause I work so slowly/cautiously):


Also thank you for sharing the brushes Milokey.. just grabbed them  :).

Trying to reproduce my last sketch in pixel form, using a four color palette from an old portrait challenge here. I will hopefully finish it tomorrow and I'm actually pretty happy with how it is shaping up.
