    Jane's Sketchbook

    Hello! I am back after a long, long hiatus. I had my username changed... a few of you might remember me as Velo from about 4+ years ago. These days I am teaching figure drawing for Academy of Art University in SF and am an artist in residence at TAD (theartdepartment.org). The students have inspired me to come to CA a lot more often and I thought I would start posting again. I don't spend as much time in my sketchbook anymore, but I do lots of quick little projects and experiments, especially from live models during figure drawing. So, I'll share all of that type of thing here. Thanks for looking.

    First up, here's me. A digi self portrait sketch. I am rusty at digital, been doing only traditional for some years. It's fun to get back to this. So nice to just pick up a tablet and go, no time to prime panels and lay out paints, etc.

    sketchbook

    And some actual sketchbook stuff. This is one of those tiny ~3" x 5" paperback moleskins. So, some of these drawings are teensy. The figures are from life.

    Thanks, Weashell! More to come... For now, I did some more digital portraits. Tried to pack as much in as possible pretty quickly (1-2 hours). I'm getting faster, it's been so long since I've done digital, though! I reworked the self portrait, too. Thinking about adding hand lettering to that.

    Thank you Footsteps, Snatti, Ramina, Meinou and Ryan!

    I was not satisfied with the self portrait, so I kept on working with it. At this point it's not really a sketch, but I'll share anyway.

    I also started a portrait of my friend, DJ Sheppa. Trying to fit a lot of cool into a little digital painting. At this point it's just a preliminary sketch, but as soon as I get an afternoon later this week I am going to finish it + add some hand lettering that I designed for his name. Then, I suppose it will be a full illustration!

    Figure Quick sketches

    Oh, also, a couple of figure sketches from models last week. Longer than usual for me, 20 minutes each.
