I've been posting here for a pretty long time, offering crits and using crits of other people to help improve my own art, but just the other day I got a scanner, so I went ahead and scanned a bunch of stuff from my sketchbook. Any general crits for repeat mistakes will be appreciated. I'll be posting some of the older stuff first, so if you see a varying level of quality or anything, that's why.
1- Ralph Dibny, world famous Elongated Man. He's also one of the oldest things I have in my sketchbook, so he gets posted first. I know his ear is too small and low, and his left one shouldn't really be visible.
2- I hadn't drawn a series of panels since I was like, twelve, so I figured I'd give that a shot here. Once again, this is probably two to three months old now, but I'm still happy with some parts of it. The bottom two panels aren't supposed to run in sequence either, the fourth is just a replacement for the third. Also, I realise that the guy who got kicked in the face is suddenly injured on the wrong side of his head in the fourth panel.
3- Full sketchbook page. Not much to say about it. I was screwing around with watercolor paints mostly.
4- More random stuff.
5- I really like how Invincible and Martian Manhunter look on this page.
6- I was into this thing for a while where I'd draw with a red marker first, then go over it with my Microns, trying to build up a little more confidence with my lines. It worked for a while, but then I started to rely on it too much, and couldn't draw as well with a pencil anymore, so I stopped.
7- Speaking of which. Here's DC Comics' Metamorpho and his main cast, with my scanner causing some blurring on the left. Also? I really like drawing Metamorpho's head for some reason.
9- Here's a redesign I was playing around with for Connor Hawke, another DC character. Connor's multiethnic, but that's never been represented in the comics very well, so I was trying to give him kind of a more black nose and lips. I also totally screwed up the proportions on his arms, and gave him some weird paw instead of a hand.
10- Just for fun, a picture of my favorite comic character, Blue Beetle. I dig the goggles. You'll be seeing him on a lot of my sketch pages.
11- Some of my original characters. Off to the right you'll see the Gold Gecko and the Blue Burst, homages to DC's Blue Beetle and Booster Gold that I want to do a story with at some point. Also, more Connor Hawke at the top there.
12- Trying to design a costume for Zoot, the main character of a superhero webcomic I want to do at some point. I was kind of going for a Kirby New Gods feel. Don't know if I quite succeeded though. To his left is a headshot of DC's Ryan Choi, that somehow grew a body while I was working on it. I've never been very good at drawing subtle features of different races, so I wanted to try to draw an asian guy without making him look terrible. Nightcrawler's head is also down there by Zoot's knee.
13- More of Ze Amahzing Nightcrawla (!) and Michael Chabon's Amazing Escapist.
14- Some ink sketches for Zoot's costume, as well as some more Elongated Man and Etrigan the Demon. For me though, the real highlight of this image is that thought balloon. I've decided that if I ever get around to launching a superhero webcomic I'm going to not only use thought bubbles instead of captions for narration, but I'm going to hand draw them in as well. I just think they look cool.
15- The naked dudes I draw probably hate me, because I always draw them without wangs.
16- Tenor Tooley, a character I want to do another comic with. Just playing around with a more sketchy style.
17- Tenor again. His nose is a lot of fun for me to draw for some reason.
So there you go. Just kind of an introductory post with some art. Now that I have a scanner, I've got a little more motivation to do finished pieces, so I'll be trying to pump out some more finished stuff.
