    Sketchbook

    Hi my name is Josh Bailey and I am working vigorously on my fundamentals in art to become a concept artist & illustrator. Here is some of my recent works. I am working on Still Life a lot at the moment.

    Looking forward to see more from you, because so far looking good

    Maybe you just wanted to play around and see how colors work with each other, but like your name, you have some great sense of (graphic) design, or at least I think so... Soon you can be both artist/illustrator and designer

    Really nice material studies!

    What software do you use? -Because some of it looks 3D-ish, and then on the other hand could also be 2D to my visual experience....

    Just photoshop. No 3D was used. I want to try out using painter a bit in the future as well.

    Here is a 1.5 hour WIP on the Red Power Ranger. I gave him a Muay Thai fighting pose. Just roughed out the gesture and played with some different lighting set ups. Got to add the background, ambient fill light and use a bunch of fabric references to render it out. Will keep updates posted here.

    Gestures: Cintiq vs Paper

    I own a cintiq which I do not use enough to justify the cost of it. It gives me terrible neck aches for some reason when using paper is not any different posture haha. Anyway Here is 40 minutes of gestures on the cintiq vs 15 minutes (final gesture photographed) on paper. Winner: Paper. Oh how I wish I didn't buy the cintiq.

    Some figure drawing from pixelovely 30 minute class mode on the cintiq (still getting used to it). Had to pull out after about 15 minutes due to back pain. Still struggling to make it comfortable to use. Weird.. I am a breakdancer since 2002 and have back pain after 15 minutes of cintiq usage but can go a whole day of physical training and feel great at the end.. Anyway, my hopes are high.

    Hello there and thank you for stopping by my sketchbook!

    It is a nice start you have here. With figure studies, I'd recommend studying more
    from ref at this point, with photos that have a clear (not defused) light to be able to
    see shapes better. Or from life, even better. And look up for some of the masters
    like villpu, loomis, bridgman, hogarth, bammes, etc. See which fits you best and study
    after them. Sorry if I'm telling you something you already know.

    Anyway, keep them coming, you're doing great so far.

    Thank you for the comment Glad you stopped by. I am just getting into figures and have been using pixelovely website. I got bridgeman and loomis books recently and just began reading through them.

    Here is a 45 minute WIP of a hudson river painting study. Have not been focusing on details yet.
    I realise there is a lot of things in the wrong direction etc but I have not been focusing on details so I will correct them all once I get the feel in.

    Mug study. Haven't done a digital still life in a while. Most of my time has been spent doing pencil work with the figure stuff which has improved a lot. I got lazy and didn't draw out the elipses in perspective this time but I think I got close eyeballing it.

    @Assumzaek - Oh the figure studies paid off too by the way. Here is a figure from my imagination in 2 minutes (absolutely no reference apart from my visual library in the brain). This was done in painter using the scratchboard tool, not sure why I used it but did anyway. I find that if I block in with value rather than line I can feel the forms better so that is my way of working now, I lightly block it in feeling then I go over that with more precise linework but still using that feeling with the linework. Yeh I sound like a drunk but it is a feeling you get.

    @assumzaek - Thanks, I actually find them fun now that I have a more comfortable chair and in turn produce better quality work. Before my neck would give me a lot of grief, make my art quality drop significantly and then that made me demoralised about even doing art because I wasn't having fun in the process (neck pain) and ended up with a terrible result. New chair, new posture, no pain, all fun, better results. Now I actually want to practise. Now it actually works...
