    Well, I used official pallets and such. I also stole the eyes off of Pikachu's official sprite. Overworlds used a base I made from observing official sprites and the Pikachu overworld is basically and extremely heavy edit. But generally speaking, they're scratch, yeah.

    EDIT: I'd say somewhere about 95%.

    Got all sorts of stuff this time around. Some alleged "anatomy" practice...



    Some sketches of this weird OC I came up with. Did it during the end of my Algebra II final...



    A hand I did in charcoal made earlier this year in an art class. Just got it back. Really wishing that I had a better scanner. Oh well.



    I've got some bigger pieces from that art class that I'm actually pretty proud of, but I have no clue how to get a nice digital copy. :/

    David Grohls a badass. The proportions and features compared to his face are quite off though. Eyes are quite large, the nose is shaped/facing awkwardly considering the way the head is facing, and the eyebrows are quite thick. When sketching from a reference, remember:
    1. use guidelines, and don't be afraid to open the photo in photoshop/take out a pen and draw guidlines on the actual photo
    2. When trying to draw a particular feature, and the face in general, do not think of it as it is. Think of it's shape. For example, when you're drawing the eye, do not think about the fact that you are drawing the eye. Thing about the shape of each line in it, how far one line is from another, etc.

    Looking at your other artwork (obviously excluding the sprites, which are pretty rad), I think you should practice facial and anatomical proportions a lot more. Draw from multiple references, play around with shading, etc. Fill up full pages of studies frequently, doodle as much as possible. Not only will you learn stuff like anatomy and proportions better, but it will also help you become loser with a pencil/pen. Here's examples of studies found in this thread: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=27039

    SPOILER! :

    SPOILER! :


    As you can see, they're not fancy or anything. He's essentially doodling from random references and from thoughts.
