Site Maintenance Notice

Sorry for not posting for awhile. I’ll get some articles up soon, I promise.

However, I just want to let everyone know that later this week I’ll be moving servers for the site, so it will likely be down for quite awhile. If you try to access the Vision Riders site during that time period and can’t get through, don’t panic; I haven’t closed up shop, I’m just working on the site.

Sketchbook Monday #94

I really need to get my scanner up and running. These things are a pain to edit and place with the uneven lighting that I’m getting just snapping pictures.

SketchFelt like getting my inking pens out, and this is the result. Still got it! Really need to do more sketchbook inkings, I think.

SketchAnother sketch of the above character.

SketchHere’s another inking I did this past week. First concept design for a new character…

SketchFull body concept for the character. I don’t think she’ll end up with this outfit, even though I really like it.

SketchColin, a character of mine from ages ago that I haven’t really ever done anything with. I think he’s showed up before in a few other Sketchbook Mondays.

SketchIt’s Tachi! You should know him!

SketchA chibi pointing. Just whatever.

SketchAn environment sketch. I don’t do these nearly as much as I should. This particular one is concept art for a level motif.

Sketchbook Monday #93

It’s Sketchbook Monday! On a Wednesday! Just like old times. Monday was Labor Day here in the United States so I wasn’t planning a Monday update. Also, the Internet was out for whatever reason.

SketchWe begin with an age progression. These are usually fun to do. Here’s a character as a toddler, around age three or so.

SketchHere they are again, further into childhood. Around age nine.

SketchNow he’s a teenager, age thirteen-ish. Because of the way I placed everything on the sketchbook page, I didn’t have room to do the full bodies of these last two.

SketchFinally, the character has reached young adulthood, around age seventeen or eighteen.

SketchBonus sketch: age 118.

SketchRandom stoic girl for a story idea in my head that I likely won’t ever bother to develop. It takes place in a future where full-body transplants have become a thing. This young girl is actually an FBI agent in disguise…

SketchLike I said before, I really like doing sketches in profile. The shape of the face in profile is just a lot of fun.

SketchI tend to sketch really rough, so there’s not usually enough room to really detail the eyes. Sometimes I’ll just draw an eye by itself to work on one.
