Subject title: Ven's Sketchbook

Well, after lurking for a week or so, I figure I might as well actually start my own sketchbook. I'll try to limit my WIPs that I post, but I tend to be really horrid at finishing things sometimes, ahahaha.....

I've only started using photoshop in the past couple of weeks, so any criticism is always appreciated~ I'm always looking to improve.

Image
This is my most recent finished work-commander shepard from the mass effect series.

Also for those who are interested, the commander was actually a redraw of something I did about a year or so ago.
Spoiler: show
Image


Image
Done a while ago-Jensen Ackles.

Image
WIP of something that'll probably remain permanently unfinished.

Image
A little doodle I did this morning in abouttttt.....20 minutes or so.

And I think that's about it for now, really. I'll try to update a couple of times a week at least, so keep an eye out~

Something I finished up this morning:

Image

I got kind of lazy towards the end....but i'm pretty satisfied with this! I might go and touch it up some day.
(For those who can't tell, it's Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite. I finally got around to playing it and was totally blown away)

lol, yeah, the last stretch is pretty killer, isn't it? but honestly, it's worth it in the end!

Ahaa, thank you so much! I'm actually quite proud of her. I really like to watch my own improvement too, so it was kind of eye-opening.

Thank you! maybe I'll do another redraw in a year or something. It's kind of fascinating to see the progress a year can make on one work (or theme, I suppose).

Okay, time for more art spam. Since it's a Wednesday, I figure I might as well do a post of some WIPs (WIP Wednesday, so clever (not.))

Image

Not too sure about the colours on this one...

Image

I think I might finish this one up tonight. I haven't drawn armor before, really (at least not successfully), nor have I used a backlight as a primary source...

Image

I don't know how to draw bikes. Can you tell?

Image

I had more of this, but photoshop crashed halfway through -___- probably won't be going back.

Image

I'm actually quite happy with this one so far! I'm just not too sure what to do with the legs.

Image

And finally, A traditional thing! I won't often be posting this kind of thing (I'm too lazy to upload to my computer) but from time to time I may post portraits.

Honestly, it does look like you know what you are doing when it came to the motorcycle drawing. It reminded me of a Suzuki XD I like the girl with the purple jacket the most. Can't wait to see more from you.

Haha, thank you Sketch! I'm really happy with how the colours turned out on her.

I don't often do proper studies, but I realized I really don't have a clue how to draw feet, so I decided to work on that.

Ven, this looks pretty cool. The wolf hat is really nicely rendered with the fur, and her hair is awesome as well. (I'm really bad at drawing hair, fur, grass, things like that, so I tend to focus on these things more.) One suggestion I guess I would make is that the eyes seem set a bit too high in the head and are a bit farther apart than normal, although I don't know if that was intentional on your part or not. But either way, it's still a great piece and I'm excited to see the final version.

Forsal, thank you so much! I'm actually really happy with how the wolf turned out! As for the eyes being high, that's intentional, though I do agree that they're spaced out too much. I think she kind of looks cross-eyed, tbh >__> I'll be fixing that when I get to school and can exploit their cintiqs. :p

It's done!!!!!!! *dances*

I'm pretty satisfied with how this turned out! Let me know if there's anything that can be improved though; it's always these things that I have the most trouble identifying what they have wrong.
