    Taylor's Drawing Adventures

    *Update* January 1 2014
    I'm a 22-year-old film professional hoping to break into visual development. I'm largely self-taught and trying to round out my basic skills and build a portfolio.

    I have a background in film and art history and love Miyazaki.

    Original: March 1 2011
    Hi all! I'm super new to this site but excited for the community.

    I'm a 19-year-old art and film student and really looking to improve and to find more specifically what inspires and motivates me as an artist.

    I hope you enjoy!

    These are some photoshop sketches/speedworks from the last week or so, and a WIP.

    Sketch for the evening of 3/1. Trying to get comfortable with this character...her colors and form...and the airbrush tool in photoshop.

    3/29

    It's been awhile. Finals and spring break. Getting back into the flow though!

    This one was mostly a rendering and color practice. The face shape and flow are still a little off, but I'm overall happy with it.

    Thanks for dropping by my sb!

    If you're having trouble with heads and faces don't be afraid to do some studies. Andrew Loomis is great resource and all his book are free online. Keep up the drawing!

    Good start for your sketchbook ! I really like your choice of colors in the last picture. As ~Twig says, don't hesitate to do some studies if you feel the need.

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    Hi thar and welcome! Good start on your sketchbook. I like the colouring of your portraits and I'm curious what else you might conjure up with environments.

    4/9

    Thanks for the suggestions to look at Loomis and studies, as well as for taking the time to look and comment. I've been doing some sketching, but hopefully will have time to sit down and do some serious studies in the coming week.

    For now, here are some storyboards I'm working on for a student film. This is once scene of a 17-scene piece.

    The last, colored image is a WIP for a piece inspired by the Killer's "Spaceman." I'm more interested in color and impression of kind of the magical, whimsical, childhood fantasy aspect of space.

    Facial Studies

    Did a couple studies using techniques from Loomis. Did the line set up, then painted from photographs over the lines.

    Long time no see!

    I've been sorting some things out in my life and realizing I was right where I ought to be : drawing and dreaming.

    Working on some studies to get back into things, and to expand my repertoire. I was feeling boxed in with the people and the need for human figure.

    Some stuff from this year--trying to get into a better drawing habit. Making some progress with faces and anatomy but would like to make more. Also need to do more environment studies, as well as texture--especially textile.

    Thanks for looking!
