    JKJ's Sketchbook

    Hello everyone! I知 new here, though I致e been lurking for a while, and I wanted to start my own sketchbook to hopefully get some feedback on my work that will help me improve my work.

    Currently I知 an animation/illustration major at San Jose State University in California. I hope to eventually work in the industry as a visual development artist or maybe work in colour keys if I can get my colour theory worked out properly.

    I知 really glad these forums exist, and to be honest I知 a little bit intimidated by all the talented artists here, but I hope I can get some feedback that will help me improve! (:

    Edit - New thread icon image go!

    I had a lot of free time today, but had no idea what to draw so I grabbed the closest thing I liked visually and tried to render it.
    Approx 3 hours and an egg salad sandwich later.

    Nice pencil, personally I would have gone for a tuna sandwich- but I think the egg one worked out for you.
    The first 2 posts give the suggestion that there will be more cartoons in here in the future- I look forward to seeing those
    Happy sketching.

    An environment doodle and some junk out of my sketchbook. The women in perspective is from a Hyper Angle book.

    Freehand, lol. Except for the black boarder around it. I think rulers can get a bit clunky/tedious to use.

    Thanks for commenting. (:

    That's something, I agree which is why I ask. Your lines are so precise and spaced out so well. Good stuff

    Only seven pieces of work and you're already displaying bold talent (and your own character style).

    Thanks for the comment Orange! (:

    Recently I signed up for a colour workshop being taught by one of my favourite past professors, Cameron Chun! - http://pthaloblue.com/
    For the first session we did still life, it was my first time trying to paint something this complicated, but it was a really fun challenge.
    I need to focus more on keeping my values from looking too similar, and making sure my whites have a temperature and don't compete with one another.
    Also if anyone is wondering what is on the mannequin it's a Darth Vader helmet, lol.
    About 3.5 hours.

    Painting painting!

    I noticed my faces have a really bad tendency to feel/look very "hard", so I'm trying to soften them up more.

    WIP.

    Your style is beautiful!
    I'd love to see more environments from you, the sketch you posted looks very promising.

    @Lyraina - Thanks for the comment!

    Some more junk. The first one was done off of a photo reference, the second one from an action pose reference book, and the last one is from the colour workshop I'm attending.

    @iamkennstan I think about 8 years? Thanks for the comment!

    I just played through Journey this morning. Amazing atmospheric game and just had to doodle out something for it.
