    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    'Sup.
    This is my first post on CA and naturally my first online sketchbook. Getting the impression from a lot of other guys on here that vector art isnt the most popular method of image making but its something i enjoy doing and also i make better vector graphics than painted images.
    Oh and also i do graphic design.
    Hope you enjoy

    K also not that prolific so i'm doing this to get motivation.

    First off this is a vector image i did of a friend while i was feeling creative.

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    nother vector image of a friend that isn't finished nor is it going to be. i hate it.

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    Had to do a pixel project for uni and got carried away and so started the seemingly endless fun of making a pixelscape. This is not even the beginning.

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    Saw the Memoirs of a Geisha poster and thought it was an awesome opportunity to make into a vector image.

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    This is me in vector.

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    This is a sketch i did of my new camera.

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    and this is a really shoddy drawing i did of a friend on photoshop

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    A photoshop painting of a tiger and its cub

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    thats all for now till i get some of my uni and foundation work up.

    Pixel art kicks ass man.
    Try pushing your values more. Like on the tigers.
    Cause on the second one you have on the hair and the eyes but that means you loose depth in the nose shadow, it's not apparent.
    Self portrait is very good.
    More entire people?
    Depends on the brief i guess. Just push out of your comfort zone, you'll learn a lot. Though yes, girls are pretty.

    oh and a painting i did of an eye on photoshop. trying to learn how to do it really. i know my vector stuff isnt that varied, but what i really want to learn is how to paint. cos i can't really do that at all yet.

    James' Sketchbook 15-11-2009

    ps. i realise the eye is scary. and no it wasn't meant to be. oh and the values are all wrong as i'm sure badger will tell me...

    Great to see a bit of Graphic Design
    I love your vector work jay. The geisha is crying out for some minimal type.
    Your vector portraits are brilliant. But my favourite piece by far is the work for your foundation with the two black faces. I'd love a high res version for my inspiration folder.

    Ok about the latter GD. The rebel campaign is funny and works. Esp the KKK one. However, you have conflicting art direction. The black & white works, but the actual logotype isn't working too well. The bottle is cutting into the illustration which holds the whole idea, thus makes the bottle distracting. I'd suggest working on unifying elements in the image. Make your type bigger, or smaller do whatever it takes to make the image work. Really ask yourself, is this working. Your gut reaction will tell you the truth. These are the times you shouldn't listen to your head!

    But great start, and welcome the online art community

    Fuckin ell, I should be payed for being such a CA fanboy.

    Ha ha, man that bit of pixelation is gold.
    Good to see the studies man. Well.. i saw them last night, but still.
    Hope you learnt some stuff from that last study. Values are really important in all fields of art.
    Keep drawing!!

    great stuff

    Hey Like this. You are very good on the vector stuff, though its good to see ya training yerself on the drawing side too. I have a friend from home in South Africa who you might find interesting... his stuff is majorly porno..hehe.., but his vector work is amazing. dunno if he has any of it up though. www.andrewdonaldson.com. have a look. He does those pixel-type pics for a living at xplane.

    Um yeah. Wicked stuff...more!!!

    Those Rebelpieces are awesome
    My only crit for ur other pieces and studies is that id like to see some more indepth shading. Dont make the contrasts to high tho (like in ur 45 min nude)
    Really draw what you see, not what you think u see.

    thanks for the advice Lewis. the model in the 45 min sketch was lit really harshly from behind (or in front depending on how you look at it, so behind her back) so the contrast was naturally quite high, but you're right, i dont look at tonal values enought. ta for the post.
