Silhouettes and shapes

The idea is to make instantly recognizable drawings

This one is too easy.

A simple silhouette.

A floating island looked at from the ground up... hopefully it works.

Re-learning how to use my tablet

During my free time I decided to practice drawing in Photoshop with my tablet, Something that I actually don't do that often I usually draw poses on paper and then draw over, but since I've been working on flash lately I decided to try going completely paperless, these are a couple of the results.

I have a long way to go if I want to get used to coordinating my hands motions to the screen, in theory it should be easier because i don't have my hand covering part of the drawing (as I'm left handed) but the feeling is quite different.

These characters actually originated on a Dungeons & Dragons game I'm playing with some friends, granted they are simple but we just started the campaign :)

Here you can see how messy the construction drawing is, far from the nice smooth lines i'd like to get, which is why i'm so grateful of the layering, I feel like I just came out of the stone age while everybody has been riding rockets now!

The lineart.

Now to try not to create bad habits, it is way too soon for that.
