Hey folks. I'm busy putting together a new art book which collects all the stuff that I've been doing over the last 5 years.
I want it to be different to my Delicious Commishes Sketchbook that I did back in 2012. That was my first foray into bookmaking and whilst it was fun and successful I can't help but think I waffled on too much and didn't include enough art. So let me tell you what I have planned for this one and then hopefully you guys will chime in and tell me the sort of things that you would like to see and that would interest you in buying an artbook.
• The first half of the book will be finished art, mostly from DA but a few other things too. There will be a few preliminary sketches but not many. It will also include a few odds and ends taken from sketch sessions with my friends.
*Did people like the background 'waffle' in the previous sketchbook?
*Or do people prefer to see just pages of art, minimal to no text?
*Would you like to see preliminary work and process sketches?
• The second half of the book will be anatomy studies taken from my sketchbook pages. I think this is the part that will interest most people as I've had a lot of requests to do something like this sooo....
* How would you like to see it? Would you be happy with rough, direct scans such as the ones I submit to deviantArt?
Or would people like to see them neatened up, maybe inked?
* Would you prefer them to be organised? ie. by body part or style, i.e foreshortened etc?
Please bear in mind that this is NOT going to be a 'how to' guide, just a collection of reference material for you budding artists out there. However, I'd like to tailor it to what people find most engaging and useful so please feel free to drop me any comments and suggestions as to what you might like to see.
Thanks very much for you time everybody. Look forward to hearing from you.
Peace, love and respect.
