    KO || dosy's sketchbook

    Hi, I'm Terri. My goal is to have a career that is predominantly about drawing and storytelling. I don't know what that career looks like, but I do know I have to be really good if I want to get there. So here I am, a diehard lurker posting things.

    I'll try to post at least once a week. For now, kicking this off with work from the past six months.

    Misc. sketchbook pages, mostly studies. Some of the figures are from imagination. The last page are thumbnails for my fancomic for Merlin.

    One more update for today: some digital studies, some assignments from Fundamentals of Light on Schoolism. Reflection and transparency kicked my ass like crazy.

    @ujjalloh & ChaseNNN - Thank you!

    I've been working on the first piece from a personal illustration series for a while now. I'm using this piece to try a lot of new processes on. For instance, I went through a lot more thumbnails than I normally do with this piece. I only uploaded a handful of them. Right now, I have the rough sketch for the final comp done. It's in a swamp and there'll be water to obscure a lot of the bottom half of the image, but even with that in mind I think it may be too cluttered. I think I'll play around with it a little more.

    The sirens' hair is going to be partially in dreadlocks, so doing some studies of locs. I'll render the drawings tonight or tomorrow depending on work.

    Interesting thumbnails, looking forward to see the final piece. I also like the composition on the 1st and 4th thumbnails on the top row. There is something enigmatic about not seeing the siren's face, and at the same time you are directing the viewer's attention to her with the gaze of the male figure.

    @ujjalloh - I think I may make her back face the viewer again for the reason you mentioned. As it is now, it just doesn't have the effect I was going for.


    For the first time in a month or two I went more than a few days without drawing. It felt weird. I felt totally guilty about it. When I had an opportunity to sit with my sketchbook again I felt like I didn't even know how to draw anymore. I've slowly been settling back in my 'zone'. I finished off my sketchbook with some gestures. I'd like to do more gestures and turnarounds in my next sketchbook.

    Another sketch. The males ended up a little too much like the original reference. I'll try some that are intentionally abstracted.

    And also, I really really have to take some time out to study arms and hands. I've been stalling long enough.

    Your necks are looking a bit long from imagination! But, really awesome sketches and studies. I really liked your interpretation of the anime character into digital, was fun. Keep it up!

    @MistyFeather Thank you! The elongated necks in the last update was on purpose.

    This update, not so much. I lay my sketchbook flat when I draw, so everything is always a little longer, a little skewed.

    The last lessons from the Schoolism course are all about materials. I've had trouble with pretty much all of the materials, the following not excluded. Right now I'm working on clouds and I'm not even sure how to approach them. I get the general stuff, but rendering them baffles me.

    I'm trying to get through some studies of clouds, but for whatever reason I find even that super intimidating. I just want to draw naked dudes. Smug naked dudes. ;[

    Hey there!

    Just found your sketch book and its very interesting. I really like your figure drawings and portraits and you obviously have skillz. I dig what you say about wanting to draw naked dudes all the time - i want to draw ladiez. Terrible i know.

    Id hate to be rude and leave here without any crit - heres my two cents. For your figure drawing i'd definitely try and do more with the waist line, shoulder line and head positioning to bring out more interesting gestures. Get twists, tilts and side bends going between these main bulks of the frame - however subtle. I find nailing a gesture in your head before putting it down on paper helps. Def check out and look at all of prokos stuff on youtube if you haven't already!

    Also is schoolism any good? been eyeballing but put off by price.

    I hope we can help eachother out in the future with mutual critage.

    Yikes, my post was eaten, so here's the dirty version:

    @ kimonas Thank you for the advice! I'll apply it to my thumbnails this week.

    About Schoolism - The FOL class was really good. It gives a lot of practical information that can be applied to almost every situation. Complex lighting schemes are not nearly as intimidating with the information given. There are approximately seventy paintovers/critiques over student work for every lesson and those critiques are a big, big help. Lineart is provided for every assignment to force students to focus on lighting 100%.

    I enrolled with a $100 discount, so if you see the course offered for $370 again, then I'd say go for it. Otherwise, I'd consider CGMA because of the price. They, if I'm not mistaken, include personal instruction for $800 while Schoolism's equivalent package is nearer to $1k.


    This week, I worked on my sirens piece. Mostly details.

    The skull studies are crap; I'll correct them in the near future, but I got what I wanted out of them for the sirens piece. The lady in the back will be changed, her pose bothers me as is. Hopefully, I'll be done with the lines for this by next week. I'd like to move on because I have some ideas about how I can approach new work.

    @ nexam Thank you!

    Skipping scans this week. Spent most of my time on the sirens. Should be done this week, finally.

    Your little compositional sketches are truly awesome. Are they from your brain or from reference? They have very nice tonal arrangements - If you can bring this life to your larger scale compositions that would be a win!

    Keep em comin.

    @kimonas They're studies from the film Event Horizon.

    I haven't updated in like...three weeks? I cut out the internet for one of those weeks, the others I just didn't get around to updating. I don't have as much work as I would like. I heard Kim Jung Gi filled sketchbooks in a couple of days. I can barely fill two pages and those pages are always super sketchy.

    I found some old acrylic sketches while I was away from the internet that I liked so I tried translating it to digital. I'd like to try painting a few more sketches like them. I've been trying to find a comfortable mix between flat/graphic and painterly styles.

    Scans are out of order. Pages with more construction are from imagination.

    Beautiful sketchwork and paintings! Loving the flow, although your pencils are looking a bit scratchy. Maybe be more economical with line? Keep up the great stuff!

    @Misty Feather Thank you!

    I called it quits on the Sirens piece. I spent way longer than I wanted on it, so I'll take what I learned from it and try to apply it to the next one (the Rusalka). I did most of the research and reference gathering this week. I normally have reference folders and mood boards, but I've never tried amassing everything into a single document.

    Everything else are studies and sketches.

    Man, I'd love to think of some proper crit for you, but I'm coming up pretty short.

    I think your grayscale work is definitely stronger than your colors, though I don't know if there's anything wrong with your colored work per-se. I'm not so great at the stuff myself. I really really like your composition work and those armor sketches (holy crap I love armor, and you have a good variety in there), uhm, uhh. And the lighting on the dude with the tats in your first post is gorgeous.

    The fella's arms came out looking a bit flat in the piece with the Sirens, and I feel kinda like a butt for making note of it since you said you were dropping that one. /useless.

    Tl;dr "Nice sketchbook your art r nice."

    @zen-fehr Thanks for your help! Itís funny you say my grayscale is stronger because I feel the exact opposite, hah!


    @ chaseNNN & @mrs-thanatos Thank you!


    I took a week or so off to braid my hair, so I didnít get much done, but I jumped back into my rusalka piece without much trouble. Today, Iím working out the character and costume. Tomorrow, Iím moving onto thumbnails.

    All scans from ref, that final figure for the character costume is ref'ed too.
