For those who want to share their ideas and concepts through fuzzy sketchiness. Lets all try and scribble a bit once a day!



Thanks to Electric_Goldfish who posted the original and others who helped come up with this idea.

Can be anything from a sketch a day, to unfinished concept art, to works in progress, to just trying out art programs and new mediums.  Think of it like a think-tank, while the Drawing Board is more for finished work (which can also be positively-critiqued, but more of an after-thought for future works and not so much at an in-development stage.)  Expect a lot of file-dumping here.  

One recommendation I can make is to upload thumbnails of the sketches because the forums still allow them to enlarge to normal size when they're clicked on, making it easier for 56K Internets and also be able to upload more images per post.  A photobucket account's really good for this.

I'll start off:  I'm planning designs for a RockmelonSoda Bar after thinking how cool it is that Dragon Quest makes Bars for its franchise in Japan.  Also lets me work in perspective, another thing that I love Manga Studio for because I don't have to mess with rulers or big paper for vanishing points.



EDIT: I think Johzo beat me to it. D;

I'm going to get in on this as I've been meaning to start drawing every day again.

I did? Haha! I need to follow my own advice! I shall do my best and try not to stress about how 'good' or 'bad' my sketches are.

Hmmm...I kind of made this thread for sharing ideas and drafts, though I guess this is specifically for posting a sketch a day.

Anyway...



A character for one of many animated series I'm planning. Detective Jimmy Sweetlegs, accompanied by Zinjo, his robotic ally/information-index/camera/housekeeper/etc. Hard to see the little wings on Zinjo's back. Meh...

EDIT:

Kazuyami, another character of mine (not even sure what medium his story is going to be played out in), fighting a bunch of Gaki. Check out the Let's Get Working thread for progress pictures.

EDIT: Can we post progress pictures?

That is pretty badass!

I think lowering the opacity levels of the pencil down to 35% in my program is actually working for me now.  Looks a lot more like graphite instead of dark charcoal strokes, and builds onto lines like pencils do.

Hmmmm...Maybe you're right. Think I might replace the picture here with the sketch.

Brrrhhh...Things seem so spread out. I mean, it's cool that there are more places to put things, but I sometimes find it hard to know where to put them. Or, if I do, it still feels kind of misplaced...Oh well. XD

Playing around with grunge brushes, they're good fun

I like how this looks like it's been drawn on a crumpled piece of paper

Also wanted to see how fast I could draw a thing, ended up with this in 2 minutes 48 seconds ^^

I like it. :D It has an impressionistic feel to it.

Quick thing I did in like...10 minutes. This is what Valentine's Day should be like:



That looks like humd. It is actually hump. It does not want to humd your face, because that doesn't make sense.
