Default muhcashin's sketchbook

Sketckbooks are fun, so I decided to start one. I'll try to post something at least twice a week. Here's the first one:

Wonder Woman!


Very close to a sketch by Travis Charest.

I really liked your Cleopatra. This is a good job too, but you messed her rack a little bit. I don't think it will take more than a little practice to correct this kind of error, though.

Congratulations on starting your sketchbook!

Fun with my wacom pad. I am real horrible with it. But I just realized that musn't use it like a regular pencil or brush. I has its own technique.

why thank you. I'm glad you like the last one. The fun thing with digital painting is that you can make as many mistakes as you want and all you have to do to correct it to click "undo".

But it's so much more fun to skip the undo and just keep painting over the mistakes ^^
I too like that last one.

Great sketches. The 5th one is funny, they should make a new bra size just for her. You draw them chicks very well. The last one looks like her neck is a little broken and her chest has a funny shape. The others are good though.

I wonder where you get your inspiration. Obviously it's from comic books, but do you have anything in particular in mind when you draw them (like... making your own comic)?

Thanks for the comments, Broody.

Well, I work in the comic book shop so I get most of my inspiration there. But I never was a great comic book fan until I started working there about 2 years ago. I've tried to do my own comic but I simply don't have the time or patience to do it. It's painstakingly long. You have to first make a decent layout and draw each square which depending on the level detail can take days. Anyway, last time I tried it took me about 1 week to do 1 page so I quickly abandonned the idea of making my own comic.

A quick one. How does one draw decent hair with a wacom?

Here's a drawing of Phoenix (copied from Adam Hughes). I'm not sure if I've already posted this in another thread before.

Default Soulfire Cover

I just recently learned how to color line art in Photoshop and took an old drawing that I made some time ago. It's a copy of a cover of the comic book Soulfire (art by Michael Turner)

wow you got some good stuff going on here. the only thing that makes me upset is that fact that your using other peoples styles as a basis for your pencils. if it helps you practice great then but dont get caught up trying to be an artist immitator. sorry if that sounds harsh but its not meant like that. everyone here has a great style all there own and we want to see what you bring to the table so to speak. be original and creative.

It's okay to copy from the masters for practice if you know the mechanics of how they did it. You know those "Draw 50 ___" books? Most people never actually go through all the steps and just try to copy or trace the final image. That's not a good way to learn to draw. (Not that I think you don't know the basics, it seems that you actually know them quite well.) Try mixing and matching styles you like and tweak them until you come up with a style all your own.

Also: Here's some tutorials you may find useful. There are some good hair tutorials there and the art process one was quite insightful. http://www.merekatcreations.com/

Guys, I'm not looking to learn HOW to draw. Quite frankly, I don't see how it is any of your business from what I draw my inspiration. I simply posted an image that showcased by newly learn skill, i.e. COLORING in Photoshop. The picture itself, yes is a copy, was done 3 years ago.

Now, I will take any challenge to draw anything you propose and show you my very own "style" because apparently I don't have any.
