Quick studies

Here's some studies from the last couple of weeks, i'm trying to get in the habit of doing these 
every morning before work. Trying to improve my confidence with values. 
Reference comes from THIS great site.
I'll have to find the time to do some longer studies to improve my rendering too!

These are 10 min each (digital).

And here's some 60 sec gesture drawings.

Wonky Robot

I did this little digital sketch yesterday night, trying to get a more painterly look and trying to keep it real simple. As you might have guessed, i really like robots.

Here's a quick digital experiment - I'm trying to find a digital/painting workflow for concepts that is

Let me know what you think!

Got a bit lost in the crosshatching on this one, it was fun.

Inspired by works of Mark A.Nelson and William Stout- those guys were way more brave than me and actually spotted blacks and used a nib- i'll get there eventually...

Beast Riders

Some super-rough  fun concepts.
Does the digital retouching add anything at all to the sketches?

Because if it does i might try and do it more often even with the super-rough sketches.
