Hey Fallout, i started doing some comic book style drawings using my graphics tablet i purchased off ebay.

I used a book with lots of comic book tutorials in, which is helping me a lot so far, I'm hoping to get better and start to move onto more complicated stuff.

This evil guy started it off for me, it also was the first time i properly tested out my graphics tablet.
Posted Image

This guy was the second one i did with the tutorials, it was obviously harder because of the angle and the hair (Two things i haven't done before :sly:) but it came out well.
Posted Image

This is just a regular guy, again made using the tutorials.
Posted Image

I will keep this place updated as i make more :sly:

That's pretty decent, if you plan to persue that kind of distorted look about all of your characters.

I like it alot, although the cheeks on that last face could do with either erasing or touching up, they seem a bit out of place.

He looks like the typical mad scientist but also doesn't look like one...very...interesting. The pens look funny not being straight though. 8|

Hey man, excellent work, especially the 1st. He really breathes an atmosphere of criminal activities.

I suggest you practice on completing your own style. The 1st, 2nd and 4th have a great style that really says "Made by TheDR". The 3th lacks that style, and thus, lacks spirit, lifeforce.

I'd say screw realism, go exploit your caricatural style. 8|

I wanted to do something more than just heads, so i tried a quick scene, which ended up taking ages to do 8|
I have gained lots from doing it and i will be doing more :P

better defined arms and less scribbly shading and it would be much better imo.

On the contrary, I actually enjoy the scribbly style. It looks fitting in my opinion.
You almost did, didn't you?

not bad, but

first: I'd suggest you make yourself a costume sketch brush with the opacity defined by the pen pressure.
It's a great tool, trust me. 8|

second: try to subtle use soft brushes for soft shadows and lights.
however it's a good thing to start with hard brushes, because you get a much better feeling for lighting with them (was my fault in the early days to start with the soft ones >.<).

I await further sketches!

Thanks for the advice, i have set up a opacity defined brush. I will have a go with soft brushes for the lighting and such.

I like starting new things, gives you a sense of satisfaction as you slowly get better 8|

@Warbz: I was trying for a gritting style, maybe i should of killed a bit of the colour off to make it look more menacing.

@Brad: The scribbly style is more fun to do and i do like the outcome.

I'd still say perspective and proportions could do with some work.

First off a quick robot dude, just messing around with a few techniques.

Posted Image
This one took ages, its a concept i will be using for a college flash animation, its going to be about waring insects inside a house. This guy is a member of a Mexican Ban-Beetles! :D

Il be making the next insect soon, for a clue to what it will be, lets just say he likes vodka 8|

Well here is the enemy of the Mexican Ban-Beetle, the Russian Roach! :lol:

This guy was fun to drawn, i will hopefully start doing the pre-production for college soon, il use these guys as concept examples.

Edit: Btw, i didn't trace that AK47, i drew it freehand!

I love the Roach, it really looks good in your style.
Although I feel as though the secondary hands should be doing something.
You almost did, didn't you?

@AJ: I didn't mean for it to look like the heavy hat, it was the first Russian hat that came to mind :lol:
And thanks AJ, hopefully il get another Russian Roach done soon.

They were holding a bottle of vodka but it didn't seem to fit 8|

Exactly my thoughts :lol:


@Doc : I like your style for the roach, but the beetle isn't so good compared to that one 8|
Also, it seems that you're using a tablet and not the pen tool so good luck on animating this on Flash 8|

First, I'm practicing and continually improving, which means some newer stuff may look better than the rest 8|
Second, I am just making concepts for my flash animation at the moment, not the final stuff 8|

Drawing update.

Here is a WIP evil church, started it a while ago and occasionally add to it. Would be interesting to hear some people's thoughts on what to do next as I've get stuck :xD:

Posted Image

Here are three concepts for an indie stealth FPS game I started. Based in the back garden, each person would be able to plant themselves into the ground and pretend to be normal flowers. Might work on this project a bit more soon, if anyone is interesting in helping, any knowledge of the Unreal SDK would be appreciated.

A Metal Slug type tank, just me practicing using some techniques.
Posted Image

My latest work, I'm creating a 40k Sentinel in a barren looking desert environment, I've only got the first sketches done so far, going to work on some line work next.
Posted Image

And finaly a drawing I did for WebTM (an admin on the minecraft forums). He asked for a rendition of himself in the 'Notch' style. He liked my submission a lot so I won the completion and a copy of Brink :xD:
