    JJacks Sketchbook - 11.27.12

    Hello everyone. I've been lurking here for a while too afraid to post but temporarily I have the courage to do so.

    I mainly just draw because I feel like it but I also make some cash here and there.

    An unfinished drawing. I thought the whole thing was too stale to finish but I liked some parts. Cropped.

    A Photoshop doodle from my imagination. I didn't intend to not draw a hand and now that bugs me. Oh well.

    A still life. Needs more contrast.

    Thank you both for stopping by. Kalim, I have looked at the Loomis books and I read them from time to time. I've been trying to read them more often in order to improve a bit.

    I'm trying to update this weekly but I didn't do much last week. Hopefully this week will be more productive.

    I completely gave up on these two drawings. This is why I need to sketch more. I don't even see the point of working on a portfolio right now when I draw so badly.

    A hasty and thus poor Bouguereau copy. BUT am proud of the colors because I am very bad at painting Caucasian people. :/

    I might fix some nagging things and color this.

    -Flip the canvas. I think her neck needs to be centred a bit more. Relative to the perspective of course.
    -I love the paintings too. 050109 - could use a horizontal flip or use a mirror.

    I envy the studies.

    Thank you. I didn't notice that about her neck even when I flipped it before so thanks for pointing that out.

    Hey there, great sketchbook so far Your work tends to have a lot of movement for which I'm rather envious. I particularly like: your thread thumbnail, the 3rd image in post #2, and the 4th and 5th images in post #3.

    For a crit, there are a few figures that you've posted that have some awkward proportions and I can't figure out if they are intentional or by accident. Particularly in the 2nd and 5th images in post #2, and the 1st and last images in post #8. So my suggestion is that you work more full-length figures from refs or anatomy books and place special attention on the length of the torso in comparison to the rest of the body.

    Keep up the good work !

    Beautiful work, the figure studies go between accurate to being slightly awkward. Though some illustrators use that awkwardness to their advantage. (Though that depends on what kind of illustrator you want to be, if it's to be a Conceptartist then it might be worth visiting this site)

    BUT am proud of the colors because I am very bad at painting Caucasian people.
    Well you've done a bloody good job of it in that study. Trick is to examine closely the variety of colours in the skin are placed on the face (slight reds around the nose and cheeks, blues and greens along with browns in the shades, etc), but why am I telling you this that painting shows that you know.
    My sketchbook, if you really want to see it...
