    Lagomorphosis - Vin's Sketches

    Name:  painter.jpg
Views: 110
Size:  161.8 KBMy name's Joanne, I'm self-taught, working in the IT industry, and would like to move to doing art professionally sometime (maybe as an illustrator, maybe as a concept artist). I need to improve but there aren't any applied art schools where I am, so... I'm hoping people here can help get me moving in the right direction.

    Some stuff from my sketchbook from September. Mosh (some stuff in her gallery is NSFW) was for the drawingboard.org monthly drawing jam.

    Great start! I like the environment though I think it could've used some lighter colours for contrast. The street thumbnail and the lady next to it (nice style on the face and hand) are great too. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Hey, that yellow object looks familiar, there's one just like it at Carleton University here in Ottawa. Good works overall, good luck on finding ways to improve!

    @Nezumi Works - Thanks! Maybe yellow industrial doodads are a Canadian thing? That would be pretty interesting.

    @Psychotime - I've been there for a couple years, and I've liked it -- I still follow many of the artists I discovered on there, although I don't post much any more. Much like everywhere else, you don't really get attention unless you're great or participate a lot. Someone told me that he's been having a really hard time trying to register there for the past few months, though, so you might have problems joining up.

    Finished Stilgar for CHOW #131, and this week's speed paintings. Vista and Photoshop conspired to eat a particularly nice speed painting I was doing, so in a fit of... well... art rage, I bought ArtRage to try out. So there's one crummy experiment and one not-so-crummy one. Both are from photos.

    really good start to a sketchbook you have here. the comical characters are great and the stylisation in the mosh-drawing is cool. also the colors in your studies look pretty good.
    now I'd recommend you try to do some studies of wide open range landscapes. In the Stilgar piece you left the background to flat and lost a bit of the perspective. do some studies of these to see how color and value changes in distance. same goes to the sky as it wouldn't have almost the same color everywhere at this time of the day. repeating a few cracks or rocks close to the viewer and further away also helps to create the illusion of depth.
    oh and the little markerscene looks awesome. looking forward to more!

    It's a slow month. I have a ton of stuff in the sketchbook, but it's not coming home until the book is full. In the meantime, one speed painting from a photo (the nicer-looking one) and one quickie for EOW 99 (just screwing around with painting landscape not-from-reference, I'd probably brighten the colours in the refining stage).

    My favourite piece here has to be the cartoony demons... your later digital paintings have NONE of that confidence in design and line. Why!? I know you're self-taught and all, but the demons look very professional and claim the SB so far. Please apply that style to bigger projects/paintings!! Just in terms of interest, here's a new blogspot page I've recently stumbled across to inspire your style -
    http://kalikazoo.blogspot.com/2008_10_01_archive.html

    You may wonder what the hell this has to do with improving your skills; but it should help with how to free up your drawing skills at this stage.

    This guy gives massive artistic advice for free. http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/

    Good Luck!

    Thanks SkyTheArtist and Euphemism.

    I've followed JohnK's blog for a while. I'm a huge fan of Katie Rice & Kristen McCabe, and I've been trying to do more goofy caricatures and whatnot to loosen up. I'm just finding it really difficult to do a more complete digital painting without having things look flat, or cleaning it up to the point where there's no life left.

    Also, I'm glad *someone* likes those demons, because I'm really fond of them -- and the sorcerer girl too. I can just hear her going "FZOW!" every time I look at her.

    Now if I can only find a good market for demons, I'll be set.

    While I'm here, it's been a slow month (NaNo-ing, so not much time to draw) but here's an art card I did that actually got to the intended recipient. Marker, ink & pencil crayon on cardstock.

    My New Year's resolution is to see how long I can keep a sketch-a-day going on my blog.

    Bettie Page for CHOW:

    A sketch from a photo I found on dA, unfortunately I lost the link to the original:

Size:  58.1 KB

    Another photo sketch, from this stock photo (I messed around with the colour balance before painting, to see if I could get some interesting colours to play with):

    Just a quick something I'm hoping to turn into a short comic someday, a winter spirit that suffers from loneliness:

    A character from one of my comics, no reference:

    Man, I need to work a lot harder this year! I'll be starting a painting course late next week. It's a bit scary, but pretty exciting.

    Testing the Pentel pocket brush pen. The ink flow is disappointing, or perhaps I'm using too textured a paper:

    Finally started my painting course! Doing 2-3 small paintings a week, mostly acrylic on Masonite. Getting a bit tired of still life.
