    Cassandra's sketchbook

    I'm a new poster here, I'm an aspiring comic book artist from Australia. Although I mostly want to improve my anatomy, perspective and composition I'd really like to experiment in Photoshop as well. So I'll likely be uploading some digital paintings here for critique.

    Pleased to meet you all!

    I did that exercise in the Photoshop forums here to paint an apple. It was a really good experience to learn about colour and shadow.

    Some nude warm-up sketches too. I'm going to start my day doing at least a couple of still these before I get down to my character designs and sequential pages.

    Hey Cassandra, fellow Australia CA users unite! I've never run across any of these post moderation issues that you've come across, hopefully the issue resolves itself for future posts. Your apple study is great. I'm very impressed by the way you've refined the form, I struggle with polishing sketches to that level. Looking forward to seeing more posts from you!

    Aaagh that apple. How long did it take.
    I also really like your pencil stuff. The shading looks really sharp.

    Eberson: It's nice to meet another Australian! Hrm, thanks for the info. The moderation issues are weird, hopefully I won't have any more problems.

    Kino_PuA: Thanks so much! I'll try to post here as much as I can.

    Zen-Fehr: I think the apple picture took me about an hour, hour and a half maybe? And thanks for the comments about my pencils. I wanna work on my shading so I'll likely be trying some different styles.


    I've been working some more on light and colour with an amethyst study.

    More morning warm-up sketches. I want to practice as many portfolio views as I can, I always have trouble drawing the face side-on.

    Fetsch: Thanks I'm a big fan of your work.

    AlexTooth: Awww thank you, I'll be posting heaps more soon.

    I haven't posted here in the past week because I was involved in a car accident and today was the first day I was able to lift a pencil without crippling pain. So I made the most of it.

    When I looked at your sketchbook I thought "Hey, I know that amethyst study" and then I noticed I watch you on dA (:
    It's great you have a sketchbook here, and I already like it a lot! Your pencil work is awesome and the digital studies are also really good.
    The picture in the last post is also very promising, I like the feel of it and all the details are really amazing. I hope that someday I can draw scenes like that too, so it's very inspiring! Thank you for sharing!
    I'm sorry to hear about the car accident, I hope that you're really well again soon!

    Cyprinus: Thanks so much, who are you on DA? *wants to stalk you* I've always had trouble drawing backgrounds but I really want to get into drawing many different scenes.

    Terjis: I've been using Photoshop for about 8 years or so now but I've never been very confident with it, so I feel like I'm still a beginner. I'm a lot more comfortable using traditional media.


    I was at my husband's office yesterday and had a sheet of paper, a pen and my iPad with Shutterstock so I took the opportunity to do some quick life drawing sketches. And one of Bat Pug, because anything wearing a Batman costume suddenly becomes more awesome,
    Also included is a work-in-progress shot of the previous pencil pin-up I posted. I'm painting it in Photoshop.

    I finished the piece from my newest post. I went back and re-painted her face after getting some critiques. It looks a lot more like my original sketch now.

    Betty86: Indeed! I really need to make myself a cheesecake soon.

    Trixtar: Thank you, you are too kind! I am thankfully recovered well. I had some CT scans early last week and haven't had the results back yet but I'm sure they'll show that I simply had some minor muscle and tissue damage.

    NickyBeats: Thank you. I really want to improve my Photoshop skills and my anatomy something fierce.

    Attached is a work in progress painting of one of my Dungeons and Dragons characters. This is Carillion, the half-human half-dragonborn son of my main character Antigone. He’s a widdle level 1 Invoker of Bahamut. I got to play him for the first time during our last DnD session.

    silarvalla: Thanks silarvalla! I did start out as a traditional artist, I'm far more comfortable with pencils / markers / watercolours / other forms of paint than I am with Photoshop. One thing Photoshop really has in it's favour though is the layers and lack of drying time!

    Another work-in-progress shot of Carillion. I had the idea of giving him an exposed chest that was covered by a gold, glass-type-breast-plate thingie. I've been looking at reference pictures of honey to get the right look. I'm thinking about giving him a matching translucent sword.

    Great updates! The cake study looks so delicious I really get hungry...
    The pic of your D&D character also came out great! I really like the armor design, the idea with the breast-plate is a nice thing!

    Keep up the good work!

    gabrielalazarescu, GEB, SLIMEface, Cyprinus: Thanks guys! I haven't uploaded anything here for awhile because I've been working on a comic I can't show yet. Here is a quick sneak page at a page I'm working on for my sequential portfolio. Poison Ivy has captured Batman and she's going to be framing the panels on the right-hand side of the page.
