    AvatarJimmy's sketchbook-update April 4th

    Well, I haven't posted here in forever. Working super long hours doing dull manual labor kind of killed my conceptart time. But no longer! I'm back in school and hoping to continue to expand my drawing skills while searching for a job in the animation industry.
    These will mostly be pages straight from my sketchbook with a lot of pretty rough drawings and some occasional ones that are more finished. Any crits or comments are greatly appreciated.

    And this is what happens when I have my sketchbook around other people who ask what a turkey would look like with large breasts....

    Anthony, you rock my socks! I'm gonna save all of these. I particularly like the squat double-sword creature and the spear-wielding barbarian. You also draw more lovlier women than I can yet, you're inspiring.

    Thanks for the comments guys. As soon as I get a spare minute I'll post some comments in your sb's.
    Small update today. I was working so just had a little time tonight to crank out a few drawings.
    Some concepts for a female character in a short comic I'm starting.

    This is my first colortest Pretty obvious that I need to do some more research and find some reference material. Still any help with color in a night/rainy scene would be appreciated.

    Nice SB, a good start i would say, just keep it up, i can see all your mayor issues getting solved with just some more anatomy studys.

    About color, i would stay in monocrome if I were you, is important to develop strong sense of values first .

    The latest colour test of yours shows that you need to improve your general knowledge. In order to draw a good face without reference, you need to know the bone structure, the anatomy and on top on that, you need to know how the light shapes the head and the other objects from different angles. Being able to do stylized stuff is cool, but without knowledge on the nature of your subjects, your drawing will come out unnessesarily weak.

    Looking foward to see some animations, tho.

    Shamagim- Yeah, I would agree with you on both counts. Its been a while now since I left school and I feel like my drawing skills really suffered (I spent more time doing stuff in 3d). I'll be studying anatomy a lot more in the coming months and the study of value is a good suggestion too.
    blanquish- I have some older animation on my website http://www.artbyanthonyp.com/animation.html. These are a little old, but I am just starting to do some pencil tests on a current project so I'll be posting some of that soon.
    n0fish- The anatomy point is well taken. I'll add some anatomy studies to my routine as I'm feeling particularly weak on faces and hands. I've seen how much improvement you've gained from your studies too so I think I'll get started on that right away.

    So, looking at that colortest now that its not late at night I can see just how poor it is, not only color wise, but also me trying to attempt a style I don't really know without doing any proper studies of it. So I spent some time studying muted night/rain colors and this is what I came up with. Also changed the character design to more closely resemble my animation background. The hand is still weak and the colors aren't quite there yet, but I'm hoping its an improvement.

    I like the palette of the last painting. Has some nice personality too. I think that darker shadows in some places could look good though and the shadings could be more defined of course. But it's a huge improvement.

    I like your pencil sketches a lot, the poses have some nice rhythm and you have the 3d forms very well under control. That's something I struggle in.

    nice stuff, great sketches.The gesture drawing are great.About the digi colouring, get some ref and start doing some copies, without color picking.Syudy lightning, first concetrate on colour, the texture will come later.And, mst of all keep practicing (i don't, and that's bad)

    ciao

    Well, just had time for some quick sketches today. Thought I'd do some gestures of hands. Most were done in a minute or so each, the last one was a few more.

    your most recent colouring is a great improvement, mostly because the tones don't go from black to super saturated purple. It looks like you slapped a oddly textured grey pattern on top of the whole image and that is a little distracting. the whole thing looks a lot more unified than the last one and your colours are getting better, keep it up

    good hand studies, though some of the fingers looks a little wide, like the ring finger on the last hand.
