    Kitsch II

    Had a sketchbook here a long time ago. I'm planning to do art studies regularly again, so here I am starting fresh.

    My name's Jeremy and I've always enjoyed drawing. The type of concept art shown on magazine like ImagineFX as well as websites like this really appeal to me - and they're the type of drawings I want to produce.

    So feel free to offer your crit/opinions on what I'm doing. I appreciate what ever you'll have to say, and I will try to reply in all your SB I really do hope I can continue to be active on the forums, but I know when the new academic year starts it may very well be impossible. Nonetheless I will do what I can while I'm still on holiday.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Long story short, to make this new SB fun and enjoyable, let's start with sum funnies.

    Btw, do we absolutely have to enter the categories and genre for every single image we upload? This is really tedious.

    Glad you like them roxanne

    ---------------------------------

    Batman is a vigilante hero whose secret identity is the millionaire philanthropist: Bruised Wang.

    As a boy, Bruised witnessed the chilling death of his parents in a baseball game - killed by a stray homerun ball (on his birthday).

    The trauma inspired the little Wang to become a vengeful warrior. He roams the night, beating the ape shit outta people with the very object he once feared - a giant (baseball) bat.

    He alone stands against the corruption and steroid abuse that is MLB.

    He is, the Batman!

    hell yeah, you are back.
    where the heck'd you disappear?
    love bruised wang, and i was esp fond of the kind of sketches like the ones in the bottom of post 7, great sense of movement.
    one little thing is i kinda have the impression there's somethig weird regarding placing characters on the ground, you can always aid yourself with a simple horizon line, a ground shadow, or character footprints to help that.
    really liked those lil' enviro skeches as well, from what i remember i used to love the way you gave your pencil volume (like...hatching, or whatever the hell its called, can't figure it out right now)

    hope you don't disappear again, can't wait to see more

    ciao!

    Thanks for the replies fellas, will try to reply in all your sketchbooks.

    TheGnoll: I really ought to do that, I've never been in the habit of placing the characters in a context. Hopefully as I get more confident with drawing environments, it will come to me naturally.

    Carnifex: thanks man, love your new avatar

    paperX: I don't have MSN (don't even know how to use it lol). I'll see if I can catch you in the CGNZ forums.

    armando: yeap, did you like it?

    Hey JERI,

    I've been following your stuff for a while. Just found that you've started up a new sketchbook, so I decided to drop by. I really dig your style and I love the expressiveness in your sketches. Anyways, glad you're posting again, can't wait to see more.

    I really like your line work, alot of precise lines, I have been trying to play with crosshatching myself but it's lacking that sleek look. keep up the good work.

    Hi there JERI,

    I'm happy to see new stuff from you and that new stuff looks sweet.
    your Batman design is cool, could change his name to Bad'motherfucker'man
    he is the essence why I like batman comics, cause they aren't as clean and shiny as all the other american comics are

    the fully illlustrated chicks rock, they are a lot cleaner coloured and the lighting fits the BG

    btw: thx for checking my SB, I even updated it today

    re

    Glad to see you are back. I'm really digging those gestures in those action poses. Those quick face studies have a lot of great line quality, but not at all stiff.

    The recycled panels and rewordings are hilarious.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Sorry for being inactive, there were a lot of studies to be done so I opted to focus on the work instead.

    I will attempt to reply in everyone's thread and contribute as much as I can.

    I need advice/crits/etc for the pieces I'm working on. I'm really keen to have them as presentable as possible, and anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated.

    Right now I'm focusing on the piece with the horse and the castle. I'm cleaning up the lines for the castle as it looks a little lopsided, but I'm unsure whether I've gotten all the aspects covered before moving on to the clean-up process. The castle's just meant to be a grand-looking castle, with lights piercing through the clouds (day-time), and a horse-rider looking at it in the foreground.

    Thanks in advance!

    i'd say take the overall lighting situation from the second one,but darken horse and rider...they are in the shadow,push the contrast on them. overall light on the third one's too intense,but i think you nailed it in the second.

    whoa jeri, you've been busy.Thats one terrifying piece you working on, scares the shit out of me just from the description.
    So far you've been doing a great jon on it imho
    dunno if the lineweight in the last one is the one you're keeping but i think keeping a really thin line down there would have been a good idea.I like those masses of trees growing towards the castels but not the individual ones sticking out randomy, and i'd definately ditch the fishermans (if thats what they are, or at least what they look like) they break up the sense of scale.I'd also avoid those boob-looking mountains in the background in favour of something simplers.
    I know batshit about colors so i can't help there (i think the river is supposed to reflect the color of the sky tho.
    Not 100% sure on the foreground figure--kinda looks like she's got very long legs and i can't undestand if she's supposed to be a young girl or grown woman (or if the horse is big)
    regarding the hrse i think his "shoulder" area is a bit too bulky, his buttock is going a bit too high and his back legs have a weird pose, as if he was trying to move sideways.

    Looks really really tought to find a good compromised between painting and line drawing, and again that's one really big subject, good luck again and hope you're keeping well mate

    and post more, for fuck sake

    Will drop ya more critics as soon as I can, but if ya wanna something quick, lose the colors
    for the big horse landscape epic painting, try to make the sense of dept and
    lighting work in gray scale first, then dive into finding a good color harmony, right
    now all your values are not quite making sense, cause your tackling all at once,
    get the lighting and the relationship of values figured out first

    Here's a small OV to show ya my point, you got to make your silhouettes standout,
    put something bright behind some dark and viseversa, and simplify your lighting,
    have one main relationship of values for the foreground one for the mid ground
    and one for the far away background, now this is not a rule, but its something
    to think about when having to tackle a complex image, this way the silhouettes
    of each plane are easier to see and the spectator can read the image with more
    ease, keep in mind the direction of light when doing this always ALWAYS keep in mind
    the overall lighting.

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...rmer/oooOV.jpg

    One last thing make sure you can read the image in small size if you cant
    then your relationships of value are wrong, and don't use hard brushes
    for all the parts of the image, clouds are fluffy in some areas and kinda hard
    on others, do some cloud studies from photos, ill help ya tons

    K see ya later man, and dament, post more often!
    the lord knows I love yer girls and your dynamics je je.
