    JCBowie's Sketchwork

    Hi! This is my first time posting on here so I hope I'm posting in the right section.. If I'm not, please tell me! haha
    My printer is packed so these will be works I've previously drawn in my sketchbook and from outside work so you guys can get the jist of what I do. I'm very open to critiques, suggestions, comments, and typo corrections.
    I will also take this opportunity to introduce myself. The name's Jessi and I am currently pursuing a degree in Illustration but I love to dabble in a bit of everything really. My ultimate goal is to become an art director and retire as a professor. Some of my favorite artists are Bobby Chiu, Feng Zhu, Kazuo Oga, and Yoshitaka Amano. You can see more of my art and info here: http://jcbowie.deviantart.com/

    I usually draw with a Staedtler non-photo blue pencil first and then go over it with a mechanical pencil.

    The above was drawn with pen. I'd also like to note that I'm still trying to find and STICK to a style. I tend to change styles a lot because I get bored of one..? I don't know why.

    A very good start with your sketchbook. I'm very curious to see what you can do with colors.

    Beeboy13, Thanks! Drawing characters is probably my favorite thing to do, along with sculpting them.
    Example:

    Here is a landscape study I did earlier in December. I used a reference picture I found online somewhere.

    It's a bit more colorful than I'd like it to be.
    20 min getting down the colors and 20 min detailing.

    The landscape study is really nice, I like it. I like how you focused in on the rocks, those details are sweet ! The rest of your stuff is pretty awesome as well, the dessert studies got me hungry though :/ haha. Keep it up.

    Prepare for noobishness. Critique it please! I don't care if its harsh or obvious lol. I know I need to fix the values and I should've started in black and white but I think in colors :c hah but if you agree with the value thing say so anyway. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. I want to learn. I'm also going to add some people in there and fish to show scale later on.

    As to what it is…. it started out being a mech turtle diving unit but then it needed more to it so I thought making it into an underwater train would look better.
