    Kat's sketchbook - And The Journey Continues

    I've lurked here for long enough I think Even though I think my stuff sucks, I'll put up a part of my sketchbook in the hopes of getting some constructive criticism. I don't think I have gotten any helpful feedback on much of my work, so I really look forward to hearing something.

    I know I have lots of improve on and am working at it everyday to better my skills. Hopefully if I'm not too embarrassed or lazy I'll update this post as often as I can.

    Nice perspective stuff in your first post. And I like the portrait in your last post. But her face seems to be kind of floating a bit. I think maybe it's that the rest of her especially her neck is so out of focus. Maybe a little more detail on the neck would fix it. Right now it's distracting from a really pretty piece.

    Keep posting. I'll check back!
    "This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams

    Here's a colour study I did a while ago. Haven't done anything in colour since as I'm just concentrating on line and tone atm.

    I found with this one I still had to use Photoshop's auto contrast (or one of those auto settings) to really make the image pop so my colours are still too flat >< I have a hard time not been scared to use the right colours I think. Anyway that's why I'm working my way up to it now so it's one less thing to worry about.

    Thanks for the advice Vyliss. The cylinders are starting to get old and I'm trying my best to add what anatomy I at least partially know.

    Love your females mostly, and that knight with the sword (looks like colored pencil) is really nice

    Very nice sketchbook so far! Your observation and perspective skills are strong. Your imaginary construction is good but can be awkward at times, especially in the head department. Definitely getting somewhere awesome in a little while.

    Do I recognize some Dean Yeagle?

    Cool artwork. Keep at it!

    an update. Just some head and gesture studies. Was fun to do and it really helped making those 2nd lots of heads without reference.

    I'm liking your SB so far! I especially like the portrait of the woman (elf?) with the white hair about halfway down. Your line drawings are looking better, especially the last one. My only crit is try to experiment with line thickness. When every line is the same thickness, it makes the image flat. Save the thicker lines for parts that are overlapping or in front of something (the folded forearm). Just my .02...not that I'm an expert or anything!

    Viking Raider: Yea the first thing I tried was varying line thicknesses. But I thought it just didn't look good, I'm just a newb at it probably.

    I like this pic except for her left hand (right for us). I know it's short and I need to fix it, I just can't be bothered right now.
