Scraps, Doodles and Mostly Completed Things

Posted in Color Work, Scraps and Sketches, Tablet stuff on November 12, 2010 by Davie

Enough waiting about.  The following images are basically everything I’ve done in Photoshop over the last couple months–complete, incomplete, practice, such and such.  Any tips on how to improve the backgrounds of the first two are much appreciated.

And yes,  I need to finish some of the damn things.  Still, it’s good practice.

Pretty much my best so far. Background's giving me trouble though.

Needs more sand and such in the back. Some anatomy issues, too...

My original intention was just a regular-looking guy, but I kind of abandoned when I inadvertently gave him the creepiest expression it is possible for the human face to assume.

Started out as STALKER fanart. Don't know why I haven't finished it.

I honestly completely forgot I ever drew this.

Just a quick value experiment.



More stuff soon…

I’ve been working on a couple of pretty complex Photoshop paintings, and I’m trying to incorporate a proper background.  Unsurprisingly, this is taking a while, as I’ve never done that before.  However, the first one’s nearing completion so I should be able to post that soon.  In Sorrel and Artichoke news, the current pages are basically the introduction.  I’m currently working on developing a buffer of three or four pages, like them professionals do, so that maybe–maybe–they’ll start coming out in a timely manner.  Hopefully.  I always inadvertently lie about these things though.

Either way, you’ll see more stuff soon.  In the meantime, here are some rather unexciting master copies I did back in July for my drawing class.

After Titian's Jacopo Strada

After Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring
