    Sketches and Art by Kerynean

    Hello, my name is Fiona and I am currently 18 and living in Australia. I've been interested in art ever since I was a child, and went on to develop this interest in High School by enrolling in a specialist art program. I then went on to Fine Art in my last two years. At the moment I'm a year 12 graduate still figuring out where to take my art.

    Anyway, here are some sketches and art and such, and I hope you all enjoy sharing my artistic journey with me.

    Some Recent 3D work and Concepts

    I recently discovered the 3D modelling software Sculptris, and had a great time using it, I just wish I'd discovered it earlier since I had been under the unfortunate impression that I was shit at 3D for the past five years. Anyway, this is an Alien species I've been creating for a little project I have. I've only done a 3D version of the male of the species so far, female is up next in-between stuff for my short illustration course.

    Here I started fiddling with colour, However sculptris wasn't giving me the results I wanted, so I pulled a flat render into SAI and started doing some overpainting. I'm still deciding whether to incorporate this into my style or not... Left is colouring in sculptris for comparison.

    You have a good base going. The creature's face is really intersting, and the eyes remind me of the unforgiving eyes of a goat. Getting a few texture overlays on the skin to describe their tactile feel will help the viewer understand what kind of skin or types of skin this creature has. Is it leathery? moist? scaly?

    Thanks! Also you're right about the textures, it's probably very worth looking into. I've yet to figure out a good way to get texture with good depth on the sculpted model as I am still learning the program. But texture applied in 2D should be easy. Thanks for the input!

    Nice start to your sketchbook so far and welcome to CA Good to see another teen join. So from what I've seen in a couple of your first pieces is that you lack either knowledge of anatomy or simply the construction of a human through imagination. There's quite a few flaws I see on the first piece with the robot arm man such as the thickness of the right bicep or how high up the armpit is on the left arm. There are also a few with the girl, but anyway I'd suggest finding some books on anatomy. I'm not sure if you know of any or not so I'll just let you know right now that Loomis, Bridgeman, and Hogarth are usually the go to resources for anatomy. I wish you the best of luck with your studies and I hope to see more from you

    Thanks Forrest I. You are absolutely right about the anatomy thing, it's always been a bit of a struggle for me and on analysis I do need to practice it more. It's on my rather long mental list of things to work on. Also thanks for the resource suggestions. ^^

    No problem I guess I should've given this to you earlier, but here is the whole Loomis book on figure drawing so you don't have to spend any money

    Neato! Thanks Forrest I, I'll be sure to put that to good use.

    Anyway, here is a bit of an update for today. Had a friend over and had a bit of an art jam for our illustration class and got a good few drawings and art stuff done (even though not all of them were class related). Here's some of my results:

    Beginnings of my second Illustration for class in SAI, just laying down the background now since it's going to be the most difficult part for me, which is probably clear. I'm not used to perspective or buildings (I used a bit of a reference from a town I built in a game, ahaha :tehi: ).

    I'm also finding that the colours feel a bit off for me (the whole, sky is blue, grass is green thing that I get mad at for doing) but I'm trying to keep it in sync with my earlier illustration posted here (one with cabbages and caterpillar), so opinions and crit would be greatly appreciated for this one. It would really help me out.

    Started working on the fullbody sculpt of the species from the earlier bust; learned how to effectively use masks in sculptris today, yay!

    This was actually from yesterday afternoon, some studies with a focus on light and shade and how much detail one can imply with it.

    And lastly I thought I'd throw in this still-life study from earlier this year, as I just found it while rummaging though files. Anyway, thanks for looking!

    nice sketchbook.
    As for the illustration of the town. The perspective of the buildings looks good, however the perspective lines made by the houses would result in a horizon that is far outside the canvas and not right behind the town as you have made it. In order to see the sky with this perspective of the town, the town would have to be on the side of a hill and every house would be extremely tilted.

    keep updating

    Oh man, you're right. And now I really do see it. Looks like the houses are about to slide off the page, ahaha. I'll amend that. Thanks Fumble!

    Heeeeere's a bit of an update for you guys, stuff from the past week or so. I'm feeling a bit overworked at the moment, since I'm pushing to get this story-concept-novel-illustration-portfolio-stuffer project in it's beginning stages. A lot of people are wondering what on earth I am thinking, but in the end, I enjoy it.

    First off here's the update of stuff for my illustration class:

    I attempted to fix the perspective issue to the best of my ability, thanks to Fumble for pointing out my earlier mistakes. I'm still working on the kids, I am aware the boy on the right needs his anatomy fixed. If any of you have ideas of how to go about that, it'd be much appreciated.

    Also, some bonus! stuff. Concepts of the characters for the story I'm illustrating. I drew these on an A3 sketchbook which is a pain in the ass to scan, so sorry for the image quality, I had to take the photo and avoid my shadow getting all over it too much at the same time.

    Next we have the beginnings of an artwork for one of my friend's 18th, she asked for a purple dragon. My dragon drawing skills are pretty rusty though, since I haven't really drawn many of them since I was 12-13 (I used to be obsessed with them) so crit would be great. Especially for the face, it's really bugging me. Also including the lines here, which I rarely draw traditionally.

    AAAAAND last but not least, stuff for that project I'm working on. More stuff from the species I posted earlier in the thread, still needs a name. Due to the static nature of their faces, they're not able to use facial expressions. Instead they use colour to communicate emotions. Although, trying to paint someone as angry without your classic 'angry brows' is hard. I'll have to work on that.

    Also to Lohes, thank you~ I'm glad you're enjoying my work

    More stuff~

    All this stuff here is pretty much complete, bar the children's illustration; I know I rushed it, but I'll come back to it when I'm not sick of looking at it.

    First off, here's the completed version of the earlier illustration. I'll probably go back and tweak it sometime later, as I said.

    And here's the finish of the fullbody that I posted a few weeks back, trying to balance between showing enough 3D detail and making it look a bit like a hologram.

    Here's a colour of that species with an expression study.

    And last but not least, a quick speed-paint with a scifi theme, related to the project I'm working on. Was trying to render and imply as much as possible without going into detail. I don't know much about designing or rendering space-suits, so don't be too hard on me about it. But advice is appreciated~

    Also thank you to Kingkostas, I'll be sure to keep it up!

    Been having problems submitting stuff, so hopefully this time round things will work better.

    Anyway, here's a bit of an update for you guys, mostly finished stuff.

    Here's that finish of the Alien species from earlier. I learned a lot about Photoshop through this, don't think I've ever used gaussian blur so much in my life! Trying to achieve balance of 3D detail whilst looking like a hologram here. I'm pretty happy with the result.

    An last but not least a quick speedpaint from the same project.
