    Behind the Scenes - Emma's Sketchbook!

    Hi everyone and welcome to 'behind the scenes' my first sketchbook! It is named as such as I am currently training to become a film concept artist/set designer/story boarder. Anyway, I came across this website and I was really inspired by the dedication and skills I found, so I decided I would jump on the band wagon and join in the fun!

    Drop me a comment and I promise I'll try to return the favour

    Hmm well I've working really hard on my school art coursework so I haven't had much time for my own drawing today. D:
    I spent a lot of hours yesterday on a digital piece then my laptop blue screened and I lost the files.. gutted. I still have the sketch though, it is the last thing I posted here
    Anyways for today I have a really quick sketchy sketch.. and I'm not promising a masterpiece!

    Hey, I'm liking the gun on that piece, the details are pretty cool.

    Your faces and arms are looking a little flat, maybe seeing in dimension would boost your work. Having said that your faces show potential and your have a good grasp on composition to handle the negative spaces in your drawings, especially in between the legs of the octopus girl. Rendering negative space has always been something I have neglected or not been brilliant at, so that's a skill in itself.

    I'm having some problems with faces that I see on yours too, like the classic 'American Football eyes' though as I said to Little Maiden, just knowing a little bit about value and thinking like a sculptor can bring volume and depth to anything that's overly flat looking.

    The blue of the eyes in the boy holding the gun for example look exactly the same colour, that wouldn't happen in life, because there would always be a light source coming from somewhere and the eyes would end up looking different. One would be darker than the other or have a little bit of another colour coming from somewhere else. One might even have a light spot of white that the other wouldn't have.

    The nose is great though! and the lips are getting there. I want the lips to be a bit more 'touchable', lol, you know, protruding a bit more. The cheeks may be lacking some form, though I have trouble with that myself so maybe someone with more experience can help you on that front.

    Perhaps the octopus girl could use a bit more human torso just before the octo-part creeps up, if you see what I mean, she seems a short looking octo girl, lol. Give her a chance, must be tough being an octo girl! Lol.

    The touches on the octo-girl are cool, the seaweed, handbag and bracelet. These type of 'mini items' crop up lots in Western Art Greats, so having that design technique is really going to give your work an extra edge at a later stage, especially if you are doing that without thinking too hard about it. You can then leave viewers little 'clues' as it were to stories that you may have going in a piece, and if you read up symbols you might have say a skull in a piece to represent death or you could think about 'well this octo-girl has a hand bag, so does that mean she has been near landwellers? or did she steal it from a boat?' Loads of these kind of questions can bring viewers to your pieces if you choose to add this kind of depth to your work at some point.

    Yeah, that's some comments that came to me on first glance. I hope these were encouraging words and look forward to seeing more!

    Wow, it's been a long time I looked at a beetle and that one is dandy! Is the front left leg a little out in the top right corner? I don't know beetle anatomy well enough. I love the shine on the shell.

    Some really cool detail on the cricket, the face looks almost human; it reminds me of the Naked Lunch movie.

    Good hatching and detail on the last one. There must be a knack to hatching because I haven't fully mastered that yet myself and so many people on here have incredible hatching skills. I love it.
