Figured I'd start a thread here, too.

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Jim, aka OrcaDesignStudios. For a long time, I'd been focused entirely on 3D art, but I'm back now to doing mostly 2D stuff. Been drawing pretty much since I was born and I'm always looking for new techniques to try and new ways to improve.

A lot of my recent sketches have been done using Prismacolor markers. I recently picked up a couple sets and I use the sketches to get accustomed to their quirks.

My weapons of choice are 3H and 2H pencils for rough work, H or HB for finished pencils. I used to do all my roughs in non-photo blue, but I found that the Prismacolour markers didn't play well with npb pencil, so now the only time I go npb is if I'm scanning to colour digitally.

I'll start off my sketch thread with the oldest sketch I have: Darth Vader, from way back when I was 5 years old!

And now for something more recent...



This is actually an amalgam of four sketch pages. Didn't see the point of posting four separate images.

The Wonder Woman/Superman at the right was the rough sketch for a larger piece I'm about to start inking.

Nice sketches! Your first one is hilarious... gotta love the art of children. I wish I still had my childhood drawings.

And that is pretty funny... I had the same problem wth the blue pencils and markers. I thought it was just me.

Thanks guys. Batman is a favourite of mine to sketch when I want to practice body proportions/anatomy, because you can get away with such a minimalist head. Also, he's a cool character ;)

The thing with markers and npb pencil really pissed me off.

So Batman is your guinea pig. That's kewl. Mine is an original character named Firebird. If there's something I need to practice I used to try it on him.

Heading out to the con shortly, but here's a ballpoint pen sketch I did a couple years ago during a really awful lecture.

Back from the con. It was fun - got to chat with Cary Nord, which was cool. Poor guy was overloaded with sketch requests.

Anyway, here's another sketch page. A random collection of random randomness if there ever was such a thing. The shark & whales on the left were a test sketch for a piece I did for a book called Elementum Bestia. I actually kinda like this sketch better than the finished product, sadly.

Okay, time to update this thread. I still have a handful to scan, but I probably won't get around to that until Sunday. In the meantime, here's one from after work today. Something a little different for me -- an ink sketch, done with a brush pen. Tricky to get the hang of, but I like it so far.

And yes, I do have an odd fascination with Ewoks these days.

nice sketch, but I am worried about the "odd" fascination with Ewoks. That just sounds wrong!

Don't encourage him. Actually, if the ewoks looked like your sketch, all bad ass and sh!t... they wouldn't have been such a worthless character... I mean, come on... Storm troopers getting taken out with a rock. I have been hit in the head with rocks bigger than those... don't get me started.

But I like the sketch.

This was supposed to be Voldemort, but ended up looking like a snarling turd.

Sketched with pencils and a brush pen.

Decided I'd been neglecting this thread for two long, so here are a few newer addition, starting with Batman and Two-Face. This one I did for fun, but back when some guys at Newsarama were developing the Ultimate DC Universe, they liked the Two-Face idea and asked me to develop it further for them -- which is what the second image is. Since the UDCU has basically folded, I guess its safe to show the pic now!
