Subject title: arodude's sketchbook

Finally got around to making a sketchbook. I'm aiming to become an illustrator of some sort. Feel free to critique! :)

Recently I've been doing some portrait studies that doubled as value studies.

Hey, welcome to the forums! Your portrait studies look awesome, I really like the eyes, and I like how you create edges with that brush.. looks great! Keep it up!

These were studies done from photos after watching proko videos on mannequinization of the figure.

I gotta remember to update this... I have some backgrounds here I did for a visual novel game jam. I did them over the course of a month and a half during early February/ all of March.

Some sketches from the last few weeks. Trying to be more detailed with my sketches and portray a sense of form

This is a piece I did for a light grey art lab gallery show where the theme was Camouflage. I feel like I could have done better but it was a good experience.

NesoKaiyoH, Koźlik, Spider - Thanks for the kind words : D

Trask - Thanks! I forgot to mention that whoops, the game is an otome called AIRIS.

Trying to figure out what I've already posted, what I haven't posted, what I don't want to post, and what I'm even allowed to post haha...So these are somewhat old.

Studying ideas for that space zine illustration.

The completed piece.

This is a wip for a zine.

The completed piece. I feel like the colors are a little distracting from the focal point...

Oh yeah and I made a some brushes for glitter for Clip Studio Paint. I don't know if they'll be of use but I thought it was fun haha. The brush engine is has a lot more options than photoshop's brush engine (which I have yet to fully understand). You can download the brushes here if you'd like.

I'm so glad you got around to posting a sketchbook, your work is absolutely phenomenal! Your sketchwork is probably my favorite part, and your greyscale paintings are really beautiful!

-And I totally downloaded those glitter brushes! Thank you for sharing them! I haven't figured out how to to make good brushes in CSP yet, but I love coming across other people's creations!

Oh, also, those visual novel environments are amazing- At first glance I almost thought they were done in a 3D program, rather than painted! Wowzers! <3

stardustascension - Thanks so much for the words of support! :D

I got Michael Hampton's Figure Drawing Design and Invention book recently and been using it in conjunction with watching Proko figure drawing videos. I feel like both have material that's helping me understand the figure better. These are some spine studies. The line quality isn't too good. I don't think I really understand the pelvis too well.

Some more studies and notes. Also saw swimming was on and thought it would be good to try and draw some gestures and see muscles at work haha.

I really love your portraits, gesture studies, and linework. There is a lot going on. Definitely awesome stuff.
