Subject title: Joyce-art's sketchbook

Hello, so this is the first time I've posted something here, so I'm quite new , though I have been roaming around this forum for a while.
This is the first sketch I will be uploading on this forum, but it's certainly not the first drawing that I've ever made.

If you want to see some of my old(er) stuff, you can check my sketchbook on Cubebrush, or my Deviantart.

So, here’s my first sketch for 2015! I’ve been reading some Deadpool comics and thus was in the mood to draw him. I’ve recorded the process and am planning to upload the whole drawing process on Youtube.
Now my personal question is; do you want to have a music under the video and just be done with it? Or do you want me to talk during the process? And if so, what should I talk about? Also, if you have any feedback on this I'd love to hear it :)

So I first started with a just sketching him around, trying to see which style I find the most pleasing to draw him in I knew that he appears in different styles in the comics, but I didn't know there were so many! After that I have been doing some sketching for the poses with the help of some references I've find in a Deviantart group called Pose-Emporium.

Image

After that I've started to sketch the final image. This is also the point where I started recording for the video. So far I've ended up with this;

Ooooh I love Deadpool! These look quite nice, good job! :D I particularly like the pose of him chilling with the grapes.
As for the video you're doing, music is fine if you don't really have anything you want to get off your chest. No point in figuring out what to talk about if nothing really comes to mind!

Thank you very much for your comments and feedback! ^^

So here are some sketches I've made on paper for the Weekly Challenges on Cubebrush. I wasn't able to finis the Link one because of school, but I might be able to finish the other one for this week :)

I've also continued painting the Deadpool drawing from up here, but it's in the critique forum to get some feedback from;

Okay, from today on I’m planning to draw every day and simply upload whatever I’ve made. Even if it’s some stupid sketches…like this.

My mind was just blank yesterday…
But yeah, really planning to do that now! I really should draw more, a lot more!

Image

Also, the first and second one were drawn with references, the last one wasn't.

New drawing of the day. For my graduation I’m in Finland making a videogame. We’re currently preparing ourselves to convince the judge of how our Game concept in two weeks. I’m now practicing my drawing skill to make speedpaint-like drawing for the game. It’s a cardgame, so we will need a lot of drawings.

This was the first version of a character I made, but I was completely not satisfied with the end result…

Image

So…I tried to redraw it again, directly in color this time

Image

It is a bit better, but I’m still not completely satisfied…
I’m gonna try it again today, perhaps draw a different character first.

Currently busy with a promotion piece for our video game. It's far from finished, but it's a good start I guess. This is the first time I've done a piece that combines photo-manipulation with painting, so let's hope all goes well.

Nice landscape. It's very ominous, like what you would see in a post-apocalyptic zombie video game or something.
How did you manipulate the image? I know some people only take the colors, and others take the composition, perspective, etc. It's pretty common when people do concept art (it's called photobashing, if I'm not mistaken), and I was just curious as to how you did it. Because it looks really, really cool. :D

Oh, that's a bit of a difficult question to answer. I'll try to explain it as easily as possible.
I started with a simple grayscale sketch, to get the perspective right, have a sense for the shadows etc. I would then look up photo references and textures for buildings and place them in the image. To make sure I had a nice atmosphere I later on used a layer mask with 'color balance'. After that I experimented more with different kinds of photos and at the last phase I did some overpainting to make it all blend together nicely.

I also got a lot of info from a youtube series from a guy named Roy Korpel, you should check it out, they are very useful! (especially his 'abandoned' pieces)

Okay, so here’s the final image! I did get some feedback about the rats and adding a pier in the water, so I’ll be adding those today

The background there looks pretty well done in my opinion, not that I'm very experienced. For the people I would try to experiment with more angles and do more repetitions.
I personally wouldn't use many wrinkles or try to make clothes to "baggy" looking, to simplify that a bit.

Again though, the only advice I have that is always true is that you should keep practicing, you're doing good.

Thanks for the resource! I'll check it out later. Also, I really like how it turned out in the end. Your project looks very interesting indeed.

I really like the look of that game cover, but perhaps some garbage/litter in the streets would add a bit more realism? For being so decrepit of a place it looks incredibly clean.
Otherwise it's looking like a really solid design!

I definitely want to keep watch for more of your stuff on here

So this is an image I've made for the Weekly Challenge on Cubebrush.com. More about the challenge can be found over here:

It was great fun to paint this, but making the design was very difficult ^^;

Here are some more images for Pandemic Era. The cards are completely costume made, but the images seen on the battle screen (so the rats, the portraits of the character and the background) are from the internet. The rest is completely original.
Our group leader thought that the enemy cards were too pink and suggested I'd make them purple. Haven't had the time yet to change that though...

Also, I won't be updating this weekend, because I'll be gone till Sunday evening D:

Finally a new update! :D
I actually wanted to work on my Deadpool drawing, but homework got in the way...though I got some pretty art from that I guess ^^''

Firstly I've changed the color of the enemy cards, since the team leader wanted them to be purple. So I did that :3

Image


Afterwards I've changed the enemy cards in the battle screen and finished it up

Image

Then I finally started with the building cards. I've made two versions, since I wasn't quite sure about the amount of squares on the bottom. Tomorrow I'll ask my team leader which one he likes the most.

Image Image

After that I've started with the map screen. It's not finished yet, I will do that tomorrow :3

So I've finally got an update again! I've been so busy that I didn't have time to draw D:
I made some digital sketches today and I've decided to show some of my older sketchbook sketches :3
The poses from the digital sketches are taken from a comic called Death Chicken. I read the comic for the first time today and it is amazing! I read through the chapter like crazy and I couldn't stop reading! You can check it out here: http://bezzalair.deviantart.com/gallery/245626/Death-Chicken-Comic

Image

I actually really like the design of this random character. Maybe I'll draw him seriously one day :3

Damn, it's been a whole week since I've updated this! So far my promise of updating every single day...
I also had great difficulty trying to come with something to draw, so here are just some...faces...
Also, the first one is a little bit designed after that one Weekly Challenge where we had to draw a human portrait based of a mech of...Armored Core I believe?

The shading is a lot better in the second one though

The second one's shading does look really good! Although I think the eyes are a little too big and the chin isn't big enough. Otherwise proportions are looking great and the greyscale is lovely. Keep up the good work!

Alright, so I've been working on the portrait again. It's not 100% done and there are still some changes I want to make, but it looks decent so far

Image

And i've been trying to make a new deadpool image (wasn't satisfied with the previous one). I know there are a lot of anatomy mistakes in this one and hte poses do not feel very good, so if you have feedback or can give a paintover, throw them at me! :D
