JBZ's Sketchbook
#1
Well, here I am, starting a sketchbook. I'll be posting mostly stuff related to Sickbrush's mentoring class, and document (hopefully) my improvement.

I'll also add here and there other stuff I'm working on.

Edit: broken links here. It was probably old stuff that's not worth it anymore!

Thanks for the SB comments. You've definitely come a long way in just a half a year, so whatever you've been doing keep it up.

Hey MrFrenik, thanks! Been mostly drawing! I've just been a bit too lazy lately tho. Coming back to the forums is just the stimulus I needed to get back on track :)

So, here goes a random assortment of the work I've done lately.

Thanks ruffledo, really appreciated!

Working on another image for the Rising Stars contest. This time it's going to be a concept art piece, showing a guy that just crashed into a planet, and gets chased by evildoers and their terrible alien hounds.






I also gently borrowed Dave Rapoza's work schedule from way back and made a commitment to follow it through. I've left untouched some parts, added some personal stuff I'm doing too. I might edit it after a few weeks of trials. We'll see.




And finally, these are my 1h30m studies from today!





Toodles!

I like the idea for the schedule you've got going; I'll be interested to see how this works for you.

Thanks MrFrenik! It's working out great. I'm switching back and forth with some assignments, because I'm assigning more priority to painting original pieces this week, for example. But looking at it already gives me a boost as soon as I switch on the screen.

Some updates:

Study of Leyendecker I'm working on:



Early concepts and progress on new painting:

Next piece is a "then --- now" comparison. This was done back in 2010:
