    ~~How Fare Thee?~~ Jane's sketchbook

    Edit 05. March 2009:
    Please check the later pages of my sketchbook, since the first ones are quite outdated. Thank you!
    http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=53633&page=7

    Hi everyone! This is my first time posting here at Conceptart, and having thought through this, I think this is the right place for me to start. Please redirect me if I got it all wrong...
    I have a few sketches I thought I'd post, there will hopefully be more later.

    Starting with an 'old' piece; from March this year. Manga inspired.



    Following up with a coloured sketch, pencil and watercolours. Made this summer, I think it was in July. It's a quick concept for a medieval story I write, this is the owner of the Inn: 'The Silver Mantle'.

    I won't say good start, cause you're obviously atleast semi-pro
    in the field of art. I will look forward to your future posts.

    Thanks for your comments everyone. However, I'm not a pro, you will surely notice.
    Two very quick ones, coloured with watercolours.





    I think I need to do more structure practicing.

    Thanks again, people.

    Ok, two faces. Quickly drawn, as usual.





    And now, (you guessed it) a quick anatomy studie. Quite un accurate I must say, I really need to do more serious studies...



    This one, it's supposed to be a young girl... I should also study women's anatomy more. I'm not very good at it yet. Hope you people have a few tips to give me on that...

    Actually those last two anatomy studies came out great. The girl could have longer neck unless this is view from above and some parts of the body are hidden.
    Hope to see more studies.

    Update again.
    First off, some foot studies I did. Reference are taken from 'Anatomy for the artist', drawings. I know though, using your own foot is probably better. Either way, I learned from it, though I can see flaws on the feet.





    "The prelate and the girl with light"
    Pencil and watercolours



    A roughly drawn guy. Made it wile watching highlights from the Eurovision Song Contest on TV. I do have problems with drawing such trousers though...

    Thank you people, again, for leaving your comments.
    Shyamshriram: Yeah, I try to dive into the world of detailed studies... But it goes slow, so I'll post when I've gathered up a few. I look forward to it too.
    Jtheanswer: You got the PM.

    Ok, time for some more.

    Here's a quick experiment with acrylic colours, not much focus on the face itself. That's why it's so out of proportion.


    Practicing painting fur with acrylics, done for a school task:


    Some faces. Oops, I see the eyes on the top guy are not on line... I should have constructed the ehads more first.

    Nice stuff, you have a good sense of personality in all of your head studies, I like that. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Since this is partly a speedpaint, I post it in my sketchbook as well. You can find it (with more detailed description) in the Critique center.

    Now, I tried to draw my hands. There are many flaws on them, but this is the only way to improve. I used pencil on a rough, dark paper.

    Nice hand and feet Jane! The rendering and line work on them is good. One crit, on some of the sketches of characters, the eyes tend to be too big. It makes the faces seem a little flat. I see no problems other then that. Cheers!

    More.

    Those two were made with Wacom and Painter Classic. The first one is supposed to be a balloon head. I wasn't very consequent with the lighting though...


    The second was a quick practice with light and shadow, and the colour in it. The headcloth is way too small...

    The second pic is nice, but dont know if shadings are correct or not. Your hand studies arent bad at all.

    Keep it up.

    Inspired by Prince of Persia, the games, but it's not the prince.
    I know about the stomach's anatomy, and the ribs, but it's so fun to draw... I must get better at drawing and studying how it looks in real life, not only the way it's fun to draw.
