Default Nick's Sketchbook - 08-11-2008, 06:05 PM

So to mark my 1000th post on this forum, i thought id start a sketchbook thread to post my doodles from this point on. Ill post stuff from quick thumbnails, sketches and concepts, and discarded matte paintings. Hope you enjoy, ill kick it off with a few recent(ish) pieces. Some are a bit more rendered than others, but these are all around 2 hour pieces, all in PS.

Hope you enjoy the thread. Ill be really busy with uni work again as of late September, but ill try and keep my posts here relatively frequent. Its all good practice. Im looking into getting a Nintendo DS at some point too so i can do some sketches on there and will post those along with the process... we'll see, but its part of the master plan...

Nick

Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated!

Havent updated in the last few days because ive been workin on some projection stuff, but found the time to do this quick (maybe 15 minute?) sketch in PS last night. No refs, just went in with some really loose strokes until i saw something start to emerge, and then ran with it.

Ill try and update with some gouache sketches tomorrow or Tuesday when i can take some photos.



Cheers!

Nick

mrMSK - Thanks!

So here is a quick bit of perspective practice. I wasnt too happy with that last sketch because of the bad perspective among other things, so i decided to just do a bit of perspective and lighting practice. The idea of the satellite is pretty loose just to add a bit of a story element to the study. Before anyone mentions it, i know there is no atmosphere in space ;)



Some traditional stuff coming probably later today

Nick

Beautiful work as usual, Nick. Looking at your speedies makes me disgusted with mine and really makes me want to do more! I've got a Nintendo DS just so I can paint on it and I've got to tell you, it is so much fun! I definitely suggest you get one!

cheers!
