The Pencil Pushing Area — One Man's Work-in-Progress

…and over the weekend

Posted in fan art, sketches by R.L. Bertulfo on April 16, 2012

…as promised, I wasn’t slacking out over the weekend this time. Here are some bat (can’t get enuff of them bats) sketches done, digitally done with Paint Tool Sai (loving it more than PS).

I'm gonna beat the bat crap outta you (insert name of villain here)

This was the first one done and the eye and hand coordination is still a pain when doing things digitally. I’m still getting the hang of things but I’m still determined mind you. Paint Tool Sai is awesome. I’ve heard of this nifty software for a while now but never actually tried it until recently and I’d wish that I did years back, its light and easy on the RAM and CPU side of things and well worth coz I have a very aging laptop to work things with (imagine working on things graphic at 768 RAM on a 1.50 ghz CPU). A lot of local artist I admire are using it for sketches and partnering it up with PS to touch things up like the great Kat and equally awesome Miko. Its an awesome tool. Now enough of the harping.

 This one I was just doing the lines short and more hatchings than I would want them to come out. Over done things most likely coz I am still in the process of adjusting and still am. Looked kinda like my old style of drawing things which I swore to veer away for the nth time already. Notice the my attempts above and below are somewhat crop upped coz of no feet or the Liefeld syndrome (yay! idol) but I’ll make it up next time.

Hey, this is me yawning...really.

 I’ve decided to redraw the first one and came out with this, more loose, more cartoony, more to my liking but still much harder to do digitally than the first one coz it requires less strokes and long stops in making the lineart or is it just me doing it wrong. Still gonna work out lotsa stuff like the anatomy part and shadows as usual and yeah, the dreaded woman anatomy and the dreaded (did I said it again?) essential backgrounds, all in all I’m back to square one and yet, loving it.

Well, hope you guys enjoyed it, critics are a darn a welcome. Nuff said. Till next update.
