Sketchery Etc. - Back from the Void!
I am Jefita (he-fee-tuh), Maker of Things varied and wonderful. I spend my time being an artist/illustrator person and sewing tons of tiny creatures.
I started this thread long ago in the misguided hope that it would encourage me to practice my drawing skills more regularly. It turns out I'm just as lazy with or without it, but I do occasionally come back to tend it. I worry that it gets lonely. I assume it's okay to res your own threads. Keep scrolling for updates.
Feedback is appreciated of course, and I will return the favor.

A bunch of unfinished Chow sketches and miscellaneous older stuff
May 12th, 2009 #3
My initial sketch for this week's Chow, which is the "Green Fairy" or absinthe fairy. I want a sort of wild unbalanced look, and hopefully more motion that my pictures normally have.

More progress on the green fairy. I'm trying to go largely line-less this time. Also trying to make sure that the different materials look like what they are...if that makes sense. Colors are pretty unsatisfying to me so far. Hopefully I finish it today.

Hi Amy, I'm pleased I found your sketchbook
Really nice character work, heaps of life in them all!
Cool winged and horned chick at the top, and real creepy BabaYaga faces too!
Red Sonja got the best rendering so far I think, but some of the anatomy seems off around her leg
And then we have absinthe... This ones my fav.
Really love her pose and energy. Heaps of fun but still slightly drunk... Great work!
and awesome how her hair (or absinthe) flows in to the glass, great rendering on this one too, you have my vote
And thanks very much for you help and crits on my Green Fairy, really appreciated!

JailHouseRock2 - Thanks for all the comments. The anatomy definitely is a little off in the Red Sonja picture, but at a certain point I was done messing with it. I liked how the colors turned out though. I was really pleased with the Green Fairy. That's the hardest I've pushed myself in a while. Glad I could help with your fairy!
Now, since I realized I can put plush work in here too, here is some of my recent work. The first two pics were commissions, the next two are some of my tiny plushes, and the last is some piggies I'm currently working on. The piggies will eventually get wings.

Good rendering, and really cute plush toys! As a little crit, I would say that some times (on the female knight, for example) the lightsoure is quite unclear. I'd suggest studying the plane change on the faces, some of them look a bit flat.
Anyway, great work so far! Keep posting, that's a great sketchbook!

Abrodos - Thanks for the crits. I've realized this is a problem I run into fairly often. One of the reasons I started this is to get me to do more studies and to work on these sort of problems.
For a change of pace, here's a rough creature design I'm working on. I will probably turn him into a plush eventually. I'm also going to use his face as a sort of logo for the tags of my other plushes.

This latest post is adorable -- it's the bottom-right pose that really sold it for me. How cute! Pleasing colour combinations.
I like the old face studies, too. The bottom left really leaps out at me because you gave it real depth even though it's a side profile (which tends to flatten faces).
Nothing to offer for crits so far! Keep it up.
