Kev's Sketches [updated 29July09]

Post by KevinR » Tue Aug 12, 2008 2:54 pm

Hey everyone,

I started a sketch blog a little while back, in order to keep myself drawing as much as possible. I thought I would post a few of the better ones here. Some of these ideas I plan on developing further in the future. Most of the time when I decide to sketch something I either have a vague idea of what I want, or I just make a few marks on the paper and go from there.

The man with the gun is impossibly tall. I like it.

Also, you should combine the steampunk stuff and the hoverracer stuff into one story.

Thanks, Ben. I do plan to do more with some of these characters, so you might see more of them in the future. I tend to find it a lot easier to draw images if there's more to them, they have to have a point, and I usually make up a scenario, or story, or situation surrounding that moment in time. I've never been too keen on just drawing random people standing around posing. So this approach usually leads to more ideas, and as such recurring characters.

Hey everybody,

Here's a couple more sketches. I definitely want to paint these ones up, and possibly do more with the space cadet and his monkey companion, I really enjoyed drawing them.

A little while ago I started 'Daily Character', where, as the name suggests, I draw a character every day. Usually a new character, new design etc etc. The idea is to keep drawing, and to draw what I love drawing the most, which is characters.

So here are a few selected characters. To see more you can find them on my sketch blog.

These are fun, cute, and likeable! Nice variation in characters, however ... I feel I compelled to point out that the only two characters of the female variation you've posted so far are of the "cool, skinny, huge rack" type. They both look pretty good and all, but I for one would like to see what different types of women would look like in your style!
And ... I like the little space cadet guy, too - more of him!

Thank you, Disa, for your awesome comments. I agree with your thoughts on my female characters, but they are the one aspect of my drawing that I am not happy with, I struggle a bit when it comes to drawing woman, I'm never happy with what I produce. Gotta keep practicing though.

Here are some more of my 'Daily Characters'.

I've recently started having a theme for each week, so that I can have a more focused approach to creating new characters, and not the randomness I had with the first lot of images.

It's been a long time since I last posted any of my 'Daily Character' images, so there's going to be quite a lot to post here.

A little while back I started producing my characters based on a weekly theme, so you might notice some consistency (at least in theme) through a range of about seven drawings. Themes that have been done so far have included 'Wild West', 'Sea/Ocean' and 'Insect Kids' to name a few.

I do still produce a new character every day, and I'm even thinking about starting a monthly theme. But I'll let you all know when or if that happens.
