    jskottes sketchbook!

    Hi,
    I'm new to CA and digital art. But I thought I'd start a sketchbook and hopefully and I can improve. I have been painting since January 2010.
    I'll start by posting some "finished images I did, more things will follow. Please tell me what you think and how to improve things.

    Edit: moved the first images to the next post.

    This is a great start! You've only started in January? I can't believe it! I love the humor in these. Start doing some drawing from life, and some studies, and you'll be well on your way. I hope to be seeing some more work in here.

    Thanks so much Pixie Tricks

    I did some poses, they are not that good and I find it difficult, but that just means I have to practice more, lots more. So more will come.

    Nice colorful and bright start. Everything looks so pure and clean.
    BTW; the link to your sketchbook in your subscription does not work, you should correct that.
    Good luck in your future work

    Thanks LtPlissken, and thanks for spotting the link didn't work, I fixed that.
    Here a quick speedpaint, or maybe not 2 hours, faster than normal for me at least. Kept it monochrome to try and focus on the light. Hope the size is better on this one, the others seem too big, sorry about that.

    Thanks DK-Sketch and Wanna.
    Yes, the style is on purpose, I'd really like to do children's book illustrations.

    Here's another set of poses.

    DK-Sketch, ja godt at se anden dansker.

    Hey Julie, good to see you posting here. Really great start, you're a natural - characters are full of life, figures look extremely accurate, still life nicely rendered. Just keep practicing, try to take notice of your line quality, it's hard at first - it's good practice to feel the line first and do bold confident stroke. Confidence of course comes with practice! I don't see any reason why you can't go all the way with your Art.

    thanks JiR.

    Alex, you are so right, I tend to make a lot of really small brushstrokes and then build them up, but it would look a lot cleaner if I did one right stroke the first time, any advice for practicing that? And thanks.

    Here are the first 2 pages of a short comic I have started. This is my very first comic and any comments and crits are highly appreciated.

    Hey Julie, well this looks cute^^ I seriously know nothing about this kind of work, all I'd say is look at similar Artists and try to achieve that level of finish. I guess what pops out to me in the 4-panel thing is a little linear in design for the whole page, from what few comics I've seen they tend to mix up the sizing of the frames a bit, like longer retangles. Really I know nothing about comics though. I guess as a rule of thumb you want interesting camera angles and as in all art a strong "silhouette" in your value composition for each frame.

    As for improving your strokes. Well I practice this most in line drawing, you don't really want to sketch around the line to define it - "furry line" is undesirable in a line drawing. But everyone who starts out has a furry line, all the first pages of my sketchbook are. I found what helps, is sketch the general shape of the form lightly, then go over the top with bold stroke, because the form is defined underneath for the most part and you can be more confident that way.

    Yours already seem to be improving fast^^

    And yet another face study/tutorial from fredflickstone.
    Had some problems with this one, but don't think I'm able to tell what's wrong with it anymore. But here it is, a bad photograph of it though, since my scanner isn't working.

    This is one of the first digital paintings I did in January. I worked a bit more on it, changes some colors a bit and such. Anyway, thought I'd post it and hope for some feedback on how to improve since I still think something is not working in it. But I still like the idea behind this.

    Looking good! In terms of the portraits, I would avoid smudging too much. When you smudge you lose some of your control of the medium which makes things look a mite splotchy. You're doing an impressive job either way. Portraits are hard.

    Very cute idea on the tree! Part of your problem in this case is conflicting perspective of the tree and 'shroom. One looks as though you are looking down at it, and the other as if you are looking up at it.

    Keep up the awesomness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
