View Full Version : Sketchbook: Mighty Pea
04-06-2008, 09:16 AM
hey guys, I'm just quickly dropping by to dump some (in some cases: extremely) quick sketches. Ranging from 2 minutes to an hour, I'd say.
I very much want your ideas on these, as long as these take into account that these are what they are: sketches. I especially welcome paintovers!

Thanks guys! I wholeheartedly agree with your comments.
Anyway, here's some finished stuff I might not have posted here yet:
On that last one I need to move the guy away from the synth since his hand is inside of it. Something that is not traditionally possible, unless when possesing incorporeal abilities. He is a demon, so who knows?
On the first one I got the comment that his tentacles should get some highlights, as well as the comment that the tentacles are really nice, being so unshaded. It's about 50/50. How helpful, right?

I really took some of your previous comments to heart, and here are the results of that:
As you can tell, Billies comments on a gross abuse of colour were especially helpful in establishing the direction for this latest warmup. Also, Arthur's suggestion that I make something vaguely resembling a bird. Enjoy the bird, buddy!
And then some sort of (again, vague) test-tube sort of guy.

I'm going to hang out in your sketchbook. I like it. Finish the 3d?

Bitmap: The Basil is innocent!
Also, how soon is soon? Finish your website, already.
Dur: Will do! I actually did some more on it already, I might update the picture later. I had to start over on the entire thing due to Silo beta-weirdness, so I was 'less than enthusiastic' to finish it before, but now I'm really enjoying it again. I dislike some parts of it, but I just want to get to the texturing, to be honest.
Peris: I would, but these are all mostly warmups. There's the option of using them for a finished picture later, but not anytime soon :)
I like the last one as well, incidentally. I'm planning on doodling over the top of it some, but that's not a promise. It's rough enough to be suitable as a base for another doodle though, so who knows...
For those who enjoyed my brushes last time I posted them, I've been making a lot of new ones. If there's enough interest I'll see about getting them uploaded, as well as my errr. tool presets? What does PS call those things again?
I also realise it's hard to comment on such rough sketches, but I'll do my best to post some step-by-step gifs to make it more useful to you guys.

Peris: Look what you made me do. I hope you're happy.

i like the hint of the face in this one: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2088/2393061860_7a9f47885c_o.jpg
would be cool to see some more fleshed out stuff as well.

I reeeeeeeally like this

Sectaurs: thanks! Did you see the updated version? It's lost some of the quick and dirty appeal (to me), but I liked making it.
If you like, I could upload a new version of my brushes, as I used a few new ones in there that are really nice to work with. Especially the one I used for the angular bits in there, it's great for finding patterns when you're just doodling.

I reeeeeeeally like this
+1 nice fresh appeal
Having a look at your brushes would be interesting Mightypea, your previous bunch is what got me interested in making my own set in the first place :)

Painttool Sai is niiice.
About my brushes: I think I've still got some webspace on eq's server, I'll try and get them on there in the next few days. I managed to lose quite a few, though, thanks to photoshop crashing and resetting everything. Photoshop never crashes!
It more than makes up for that by doing it properly when it does, it seems

I love the sketch of the creature (4th pic down).

Still loving Painttool Sai. I'll be sad when my trial's up, but I'll buy it as soon as I can.
looks good pea, Ive been wondering wether to invest in some sai goodness too :)

My mind's made up! I don't want to splurge on Painter, all the more so because I don't really like working in it as much as Sai, and Sai's a lot easier on the system, as well!

Enjoy! Is there a brushes thread somewhere?

Just posting some stuff from the past few days, fooling around in Mypaint 8
(edit: I should mention, this next one used a photograph as a base for the perspective. I couldn't have done this anywhere near as quickly without that crutch. Oh, my poor deteriorated perspective skills!)
And then, a large, incomprehensible sheet of scribblings related to a map I'm planning to make.
Something I've posted before, but not in here:
I'm also not terribly pleased with it. It's something that I started from a simple base (to learn the finer points of making characters in zbrush), and then fought all the way, as my lack of planning just made it bland.
Did I ever post this here? I didn't think so, so here it is:
