Life drawing using Sketchbook Pro

These are two sketches created in a life drawing session this weekend in St. Pete. It was the first time I used sketchbook pro to create life drawings.

This is a grouping of sketches I created using a ball-point pen and my wacom tablet. They were created quickly. The coloring technique gives the sketch as well as the subject a direction of movement.

This is one of a series of sketches I did for a client (which can't be named, sorry). It was created by first sketching on paper, then scanning and adding values in photoshop. The orthographics at the bottom right help the viewer understand what they are looking at and how it could be manufactured.
Here is a digital painting I created by first sketching on paper, then scanning and adding color in photoshop. The idea was to have one-man mechs, like this one, patrol military facilities with marshy or wooded terrain which would be difficult for a typical 4x4 vehicle.

photoshop painting

I created this painting almost by accident. I first created it as a black bird on a white plain but was unhappy with the way it looked. I inverted the image and found that it added a lot more life to the painting.
