    jonorobo's Sketchbook

    First post ever:
    Glad that I can finally post something here. Appears to be a great community. I have been flat out with architecture school but now I am on break.
    I've been working on this drawing for a while now and hoping to eventually give a stab at painting it with my Wacom tablet.
    I see some things that need adjusting and fixing as well.
    I am trying to give her a look of royalty with a twist.
    Any and all crits welcome of course.

    Looking very good. Very impressed with the amount of detail in this piece. Can't wait to see the final drawing. Hope to see more from you soon.

    Thank you for the comment. Yeah, the crown is taking a lot longer than I thought, well actually the whole drawing is taking longer than I thought.
    I plan to get back to it today and hopefully get some more done.

    That's a great opening for your sketchbook (you know that you can and should post here your studies, doodles and sketches rather than creating new topic for every one of them?). Details on the crown are impressive, and theres pretty nice rendering, but I think that her eyes are slightly odd.

    Thanks for the note Vumi. Yeah I think I know what is wrong with her eyes too. They are tilted oddly, maybe and I think the one on the right is higher than the left. The hair in front of the eye on the left makes it harder to pic out the problem.

    Yup, and I think that she has them like nearer of right side. It's like her head was intended to be somehow turned a little to the right.

    Yeah, her head is a bit on the long side. I really just planned on this drawing to be a sketch and nothing substantial but then I started liking it. Oh well.

    Sketches from the last 7 days.

    Here is me, making a effort to draw everyday from now on, so as to develop my skills.
    I stopped drawing a lot once I got in university and now, I am realizing just how much I missed it.
    The first image a reference was used.
    I plan to take the SpadeHead (last image) to some sort of finished piece as well. Any thoughts on her would be great.
    Enjoy

    Some very nice pencils here, do you ever add colour?

    Thank you.
    No, I don't usually add colour. I'm not much good at it. I have been doing some research into it though lately. I hope to start using colour more so that my drawings can stand out better.
    Colour is a hard thing to do well I'm finding.
    Thanks for the note.

    Wow, incredible pencils! It must take so long to be so precise I admire your patience. A couple of constructive tips, i think your work could be more dynamic if you up the contrast or play with the levels of your sketches so we can see all the nice detail sharp and crispy. Also since your works are scanned in taking them to colour can be fun, because you dont have to worry about making mistakes.

    Yeah, I think that you are right. Some of the images I have posted are a little on the faded side. Next time I post I will try a coloured version as well.
    I see that in your sketchbook you just add colour over your drawings, looks good. Great work.
    Thanks for the message.
