D&D Sketches

Here's some sketches I've done within the last two weeks or so. Both sets were done during gaming sessions of Dungeons and Dragons whilst playing, waiting for dinner, and in the van in mid-transit. Sketching random stuff when around other people seems to be a bit easier for me to do than when alone. It's a lot more fun, at any rate, especially when the guy next to you keeps shouting, "BACON OF HOPE!"

It may be a bit hard to see at this size, but the eyepatch-wearing tree is saying, "Yarr!"

It's been a while since I posted something, but I'm too tired to scan in my recent sketchbook pages. Instead, here's some lighting practice (sans reflected lighting. Shhh...) that I did a few minutes ago with my current brush loadout. Most were rendered with custom brushes I made with either Photoshop's standard round brush or ink marks, washes, and splatters that I scanned in from a mangled piece of bristol board. The balls labeled "Ditlev's" and "Yumedust's" were made with custom brushes courtesy of Ditlev and Yumedust, respectively. The one labeled "signature," if not immediately clear, was made with a stamp brush I use for...well, my signature. On stuff. ...Yep.

Tomorrow I'll have an honest update with those sketchbook pages I hinted at earlier.
