This is me, the wonderfully weird Samuel!!

My main turnout here is Traditional lineart (that's if you don't include comments) and the odd bit of Digital Art.

I love coming up with Character Designs and hope to make this my career. I also enjoy making up full stories for them and making comics.

I don't bite, so don't be afraid to like and criticise my work! Both at the same time if you must!

Current Residence: England

Hello again! Weird to think that it's already February of 2016 and I haven't even typed up a new journal! So, time to rectify that :)

How are you all liking the Daily Sketches? I hope I'm not bombarding you all with crap, I'm just really trying to take this challenge seriously! I've really gotten sketching at least something every day into my routine now, even on days where I don't really feel like it or having doubts about myself. Trying to do that and video edit and play games and work is difficult though, almost as if there aren't enough hours in a day! 

Anyway, January sketch-wise was a sort of testing-the-waters kind of month, just seeing where I'm at skill-wise and how much I'm currently doing in a day. There is much to improve upon, but also a lot that is going very much in the right direction too! Finding a new-improved method of drawing people for one has helped massively, and fully realising the actual uses of my drawing mannequin has been a much needed step as well. I'm now just about starting to understand hips and waistlines, still a lot to learn here but I am already much more confident than I used to be when it come sto drawing that area. The shoulder connection is also being worked on at a good rate.

February, however, is going to be slightly different. Daily uploads will continue, however I am now going to focus on more specified projects! I realised that at my current energy levels, I can't daily sketch and make a comic, so February is going to be focused on the new Short Comic that I planned to do in January! I will be working on character designs, layout practice, panel drawing, angles, and colours, that will be related to this first Comic of the year (Yes, I'm planning more!) There will be some non-related Daily Sketches, but it will be when I feel like a quick break from the comic creating. I'll try not to reveal too much about the comic's story in the sketches and design ideas, and the Comic itself will be finished by the end of February! :w00t:

I will apologise now for not being so vigilant at looking at your artwork as well, I know I haven't been browsing through my messages so often recently, I usually check dA more rigorously as I play Splatoon, which I haven't been doing a heck of a lot of recently :D

I am planning to branch out to some other websites soon as well, so stay on the lookout for any updates on those new ventures! 

That's all for now my friends, and get ready for the return of some Comics! :star:


On your forehead! HA!

Awesome more-than-Foursome

Hey Samuel, how's things going? I know I'm not much of an active watcher, but I'm here to say that I've been checking your art these years and I'm really impressed by how amazingly improved is your art! That's fantastic. So I'm here just to say hello and to congratulate you for the wonderful job! Keep it up! :w00t:
