I finally had a chance to scan all my hands studies.

I used Bridgman’s 100 Hands book for most of them


Old Stuff


Found some old things on my drive

One is some whiteboard doodle, and another was a quick paintover I did from Conceptart

I saw some stickers on the bus and a post on CG Hub and felt inspired to do it. I don’t consider it finished because I am going to redo the perspective of the head. I picked up a few urban photoshop brushes and used it for the bottom. The sketch was done in Sketchbook Pro.

All of it done on a tablet PC LE1600

I really…don’t know


Well I kind of do.  Joke character, actually she’s the mix of 2 jokes. One was about how girls get a lot of unwanted attention as an artist, not to mention stupid stereotypes people put into their work. That and the hilariousness of how petty some women are when others get attention for stupid character stuff.  So I added one feature afterward. She never got posted until now,  mainly because this is old and it was meant for another purpose. I don’t count this as smut.

Enough stereotypes met?

Can only draw up to the thighs because person is too stupid to plan out a thumbnail?

Big Anime styled eyes?

Collar – with glow stick for added “coolness”

All other details are secondary to cute anime face

Add one gimmick to make yourself “unique”

You go girl! …shit made the boobs too real…they’re supposed to look like waterballoons attached to the neck :<

Bridgman Tonal Studies


I noticed this blog after idling on Concept Art about different methods of studying Bridgman.

The method

Do a tonal study of Bridgman. I grabbed my pencil while on the bus and did a few I’ll post the originals so you can compare them to mine. It was a bit harder…I went with mostly sketches so I’d have to figure out the tones myself. Some of it I had to figure out the inner anatomy. Some fail, but still learning.

Granted my attempts, there are five. I just don’t feel like digging up the fifth one. Suffice to say it’s a knee/leg study. I really need a new moleskin, I was reduced to using my water damaged one…

Bridgman Tonal Study

Oh and I have a couple from a year or two ago so you can see the difference when I first attempted to learn from him.

This was was a set of studies I did in a Moleskine Journal. That’s why the yellowish look of the paper. I’d like to get a moleskine sketchbook sometime as I have some painting techniques I could try out in that brand of book.

Some of the studies are really warped because the journal had water spilled on it, I switched to another book shortly afterward.  Some of the studies were life drawing studies too, or first attempts at applying Bridgman’s knowledge.

Just some random sketches

I think after using this paper, I’ll stick with buying Moleskin sketchbooks. The paper doesn’t seem to hold too well to my blue pencil. Granted this is a .9 lead and using Pentel, when I should use Uni instead (I couldn’t find it in .9).

Although it looks kinda terrible, I still like the asymmetry gives her a bit more believability and personality.

Amaryllis isn’t my character it’s Showkaizer’s.
