J.Rampant sketchbook

Gday Z-Peoples, its been a long time coming but i figured id finally get around to starting a sketchbook on here! Ive been lurking in the shadows absorbing all the beautiful work here for long enough, its time I get involved with the community and start sharing stuff somewhere other then facebook cause im getting over that place!

well Im usually not one for saying much, but this being the first post I’ll tell ya a little about myself. Im a 35 year old Aussie who grew up off the grid in the bush playing backyard footy and cricket, collecting bull ants, and drawing the Hulk, my first career was in construction as a rigger, until 2010 when my brother died which was the catalyst for me to take a chance and make art my life. who woulda guessed a couple years later id be working at Weta, so it was the greatest gift I could imagine, so thanks Mark.

Im just posting some old personal work here today to start with but will be tring to keep it updated as we go along. Apologies for some of my lack of presentation skills, I just love sculpting so much I try to keep everything else really simple in my personal time, most of these are just BPR renders. Thanks for viewing and of course comments, critics and questions always welcome and appreciated!

Cheers!

A great pleasure to see a fine collection of your work posted here.
Greetings and welcome.

Even when in cariacture there’s something of El Greco in your choice of lengthened and stretched forms.
Enjoyed it very much:+1:

Thankyou very much @Boozy glad you liked em! Had to google El Greco as my art history is somewhat lacking but really liked his works too, cheers!!

and the last post of old works, so after this all new ones! yewwww

Like I say a lot of these are just concept sketches, and I really just love starting new projects, which i dont give myself too hard a time about seeing they are coming out of my personal time. Once I can see where its going to finish up I kinda lose interest as it becomes a bit like work from there on. Moving forward I will attempt to start taking them a bit further and put a little more into presenting them since im now actually posting to a forum now, rather then just FB lol. So thanks for bearing with me!

Again , really nice sculpts.:+1:
The flipside of taking the work to a higher standard of polish is too choose not too and to know why you don’t want to :slight_smile:
I see another kindred spirit of yours here

Terrific work, welcome aboard!!! Looking forward to seeing your new stuff! I dumped Facebook a bit ago, I might consider returning to social media when social media companies become more socially responsible and accountable (excuse the short rant).
