    j's sketchbook

    go to last post

    im resurrecting this thread for my own discipline! i currently go to RIT for 3d design.


    -- 2011 edit --
    Anyway, hi, I'm Jaytea. I'm sixteen and lazy, but working on it. I don't know what I want to do with my life, but I like illustrating. lately I've been really unmotivated to be an artist so I'd appreciate any advice.

    -- original post --

    First post. Scary. ._.; Love all the art, but I feel awkward, all the way at the bottom of the food chain.

    I love the loose CG style and the realistic art here; been trying to work my style towards that more, but I'm too impressionistic yet. I've been around for a while, lurking on a few other sites, but I think I might be up to trying my hand at these anatomy studies and really doing some actual improving. I'm serious about this, but probably not serious enough. D: Must improve my proportions; my arm length is a bit goofy on some of these.

    A few studies from my sketchbook. Gonna start focusing on anatomy, so crits appreciated. D: A couple of these are pretty bad; the first profile is pretty messed up. Will try to get some speedpaints in.

    You're off to a good start. One thing I have to say, I quoteth from one of the class threads on this site. "Don't be afraid to take time with your sketchs, it's probably one of the few times your not working on deadline."
    Keep posting!

    I like that bottom portrait I'm not an expert, but you could do a few more studies of the human body. Most people here suggest George B. Bridgman for that (E-Book!) Me thinks, you will be great in no time

    The portrait is great.
    Especially if it's true that you are 13 years old. Respect.

    Talo: Thanks for that, man! I've been looking at some books, but that ones pretty good with arms; just what I need. I have a compilation of Giovanni... ah can't remember his whole name, but he has great books for anatomy and just pencil work in particular.

    TLL: Thank you~! ;] Yep, I'm lucky I got started early. Two years ago today I drew my first digital image and was completely serious from then on, haha even if I did suck.

    Bazzu: *thirteen year old girl actually haha
    Thank you so much!

    Yeah, it is very helpful. I'm starting with my weak spots; I've been doing a couple head on fullbodies, and a few poses, but I need to get a few more refs. Will hook up my scanner on another computer and upload that stuffs.

    Basically copying what I see in the book in an effort to commit the muscles to memory; I do that a lot. Have started to try to apply the arm thing, but... eh... /epikphail

    Probably try a few more of these then legs and then put it together more.


    Oh, and that last sketch was a bit of an unfinished little creature inspired by Minja's work. Love those little critters.

    Slowly getting more stuff in. Trying to work on my humans, ppffft so a lot of these are referenced from the Plain Dealer (a popular Cleveland newspaper) or photos from 'the Associated Press' in the PD.


    Yay, weekend, finally can get some CG stuff in.




    hopefully
