Jyou's limitless sketchpad
I'm working on character design. If anyone had any pointers for a aspiring character artist i would love to learn as much as i can! I graduated highschool in 2010 and since then have started seriously considering character illustration and graphic design as a career. I do mostly sketches on my sketchpad (meaning not much digital art for now)
my favorite character artists are tetsuya nomura, shunya yamashita and hyung tae kim among others.
Thank you for stopping by!!!

Nice stuff! You do really good poses.
"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

Here's some stuff from class.I need to work on getting myself a real camera though because for now I only have a webcam, sorry. I'm also going to post one or two pages of anatomy study I'll do later tonight.
For these I used color pastels,some marker, and the black and white one I used charcoal. I started using conte crayon at first but then I realized the charcoal was alot more practical to use since It takes less effort to smudge....heh
tried to get a close up. lol
Im studying a bit from an anatomy book. (Dynamic figure drawing by hogarth) and i was on the chapter with feet.
I did a couple pages of feet sketches but since my scanner isn't going to scan them all i'll post some old work too
even though this is a sketchbook, I think adding more of an element of entertainment I guess to my work might help get me to the next level. I'm gonna try and get this to where its fully colored. but its almost midnight and i want to post my progress so far before the day is over so here ya go

Just got done re-inking it
I think her arm needs to be a bit longer now that i think about it proportionally. i need to redownload the drivers for my tablet so I'll be able to ink my drawings in photoshop and not with a regular pen.....hmmm

Good start. I don't really know the anime style too well, or should I say, I don't know how to suggest developing your style as I dont draw study that approach. However, try going to some life drawing classes and draw from life, try using some different qualities of line too.
I think people who start out/focus souly on a very stylised approach miss a something from their artwork, try get lots of solid foundations in varied diciplines of sketch/pencil/tonal work.
EDIT: also if you draw intial image in blue pencil, and go over it later with black pen, the blue lines (if drawn lightly) don't appear in the scanned image.

and i like the blue pencil idea. my bro always tells me to do that. I should do it so my stuff will come out more neat.
also i have a little time before school starts today, and I have a project to work on so anyone is welcome to come watch me draw it live right now on my stream! . I'll start in about 30 minutes.
see you there ^^
