Jesi's Sketchbook of practice, practice, practice...
Thank you for checking out my sketchbook!
This is a project I'll be doing till October 7th for my drawing class in school (Guildhall at SMU). I’m working on my first major ‘practice’ piece in digital painting using Photoshop. The basic rule of the assignment is to paint the picture to a photo real state only using the eye dropper tool to get color picks.
Feel free to leave comments and critiques.
1. Find a Subject (Photo) of a person with a high level of detail in it (I got mine from deviantart.com)
2. Pencils – Define the details, features and proportions of the subject
3. Values – Work up a black/white version of the subject
4. Colors – Work up colors and skin details to high level of realism
We did a pencil sketch to start off with, then progressed into a value 'sketch' (focused on catching light) I made some corrections on features while going through my value sketch, I still have a lot of work to do on getting the values spot on, but this is where I am so far. Thanks!

Hey great stuff, a couple of points on the right edge of her forehead i think you have the skin too bright, it seems to me to darken slightly as the forhead curves away. also your not showing enough of the hair in the top left this makes the head seem to have part of the skull cut off.
Other than that your works great, only advice i can offer you really is to do lots of drawings dont focus on one for too long.
Keep it up!

Nrx: Thank you for replying! I think you are definitely right about the hair, as I knew there was soooomething off but I could'nt tell and that may very well be it! I will take a closer look at the values on the side of the face, it might give her face more depth too, thanks for the advice!
Thanks for stopping in, I will be working on this and posting some other stuff up soon. ^_^
danishaagha1986: Thank you for the kind words! I'll stop in some time to check out some of your work, thanks again.
destinyapocalypse: Thank you for the kind words as well! If by paint you mean give it color, that is the next step in the process (eek!). First we have to get the values and features pretty dead on so I'm trying... Thanks!
MORS: Thanks for stopping in, I would like to place more stuff up I'm just afraid it won't be "worthy" haha. But soon I will have an update on this and some other work. Check back! ^_^
Thanks again everyone

Some Cartoon Stuff ^_^
We are working on a team game (tgp) and I am the sole artist on a team of three. The other two are a Level Designer and a Programmer. I wanted to place some of the beginning concept art that I've drawn up over the past week. Since it's my sketchbook I'll place some finished stuff and unfinished sketches. Hope you enjoy, comments are always welcome! ^_^.
P.S. working on my previous portrait still I'll have an update soon.
The story is based on the Russian-U.S. Space race and is told from the perspective of a Russian farmer turned cosmonaut (Flipsky) he must fight against the Capitalist Pigs and rescue his farmer comrades that went up into space with him to bring home pride to the Motherland. That's it in a nutshell!

I'm loving the cosmonauts story Your cosmonaut, though, appears to have the body shape of a jellybean-don't know if that was intentional or not. Also, on your painting, watch the reflected light on the chin and jawbone area; it's slightly more defined in the photo than in your drawing at the moment.
Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see updates!
