A couple of days ago I posted this from my sketchbook. Something I started a while ago and wanted to come back to. Well, I did the other night. Still a work in progress, and my hands were kind of shakey trying to do perfect circles… But still, the inking is going pretty good i think.
Another page from my sketch book. Had completely forgotten about this one. I love it and want to finish it. Scanner is not working today, so have to make due with the phone cam.
Whats interesting, while trying to get a good picture of it, i tried various setting on my camera. one of those was negative:
Then i put it through the GIMP to try and define the lines better. Want to get a decent vector off of it, but didn’t try to hard. But, while I was messing around, i made it a bit too blue:
Pretty cool though huh? I am going to try and clean it up a little more and make it look like awesome robot blueprints.
Tonight’s ‘Creative Output’ is in the form of a couple of remixes on my own work, and some scans that I did today.
I was going back through 2 of the sketch books that I’ve been keeping this year and scanning the pics in. You will notice that earlier versions which appear on the ‘Meat are crappy photos taken with my phone and then emailed to myself. I’ve never been happy with the way some of this stuff comes out, so it’s nice to be able to go back and get higher res. versions and clearer pictures of what I’ve been doing. On some of these I will provide a little commentary, in case some one hasn’t been following along.
Also, please provide suggestions or criticisms (note also that these are mostly just sketches, and don’t count *as* much as they would had I actually spent significant time on them)… one thing I want to know is: Would You Want This on a T-Shirt? or a hat…
or a mug..
or a scarf..
or a busted statue???
[As Always, Click For Enlargered… or ‘To Embiggen’ as Wil Wheaton is fond of saying – I also encourage anyone to wade through the massive collection of uploads where all of my digitized art currently lives here on tah intrawebs…]
Part one, 12 year old paintings.
Detail from a slight remix of a painting I did way back in ’99. I believe it is acrylic on canvas, i used a LOT of black and white, simply because thats what my style was at the time. Everything i did back and white, or red and black or… haha, who am i kidding? I still love those combinations! Anyway, if you want to see a nice digital representation of the actual and full painting, click the thumbnail below.
