Sadgasm's Sketchbook And Doodles

Decided I wanted to start up a thread here as well and post some of my art for public ridicul- I mean, criticism. Here's a selection of some of my sketches, mostly horror-themed stuff.

    Hey dude! Welcome!

    I like these sketches, though some are easier to read than others.

    It might help with critiques if you tell us a bit more about what your goals are. Are you a hobbyist, are you hoping to get into illustration or comics more seriously? Do you have anything particular you want to work towards?

    I already do comics seriously, but they're mostly in a three-panel format, my goal for this thread is to post art I do more in terms of illustration, and it'll be mostly sketches with the occasional finished piece. My goal is to improve as much as possible with just black-and-white art, my personal preference.

    Cool, looking forward to seeing more! I feel like just sketches aren't the best place to start to give a well rounded critique. Its hard to know whats closer to what you consider "finished" and whats just rough. My only comment would be to look into a big fat copic marker, or an ink brush pen, so that you can make smooth areas of black for those large fills.

    Improving skills with black&white is a noble pursuit, and pretty classic for horror. Its also one of those traditional spaces where considering what material you are using, and why, can really help give you more refined results.

    Well, as an example, here's a finished illustration I did of Lovecraft's The Shunned House. It's not a particularly complex piece or anything, and I mostly made it to practice crosshatching, but it's done.

    I really like what's going on here. I feel like you could experiment more with different weighted lines to emphasize certain areas. Maybe it's your stylistic choice to use a single line width, but a lot of the finer details and interesting bits get lost in the general cross-hatched shading when everything has the same weight.

    No, you're probably right, sometimes I lose track of the lineart and I drew the damn thing, it's just not something I ever incorporated into my style. It's something to work on though.

    I love The Outsider. Reread it every once in a while.

    It's pretty good, even if you can see the twist coming a mile away.

    Have you watched Nightbreed? I feel like you could do some good takes on it.

    What, that Clive Barker/Cronenberg thing?

    On a side note, in this past year I've been getting into graffiti art (on legal walls only btw), and here's the tag I've been using
