    tatiana's sketchbook

    Edit: added in some recent sketches and illustrations done over the summer on the last page

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    May 8, 2010: Way past time for some updates to "Ye Olde Sketchbook"...so I'm going through it today and cleaning up and updating...

    In my previous life I was a full-time in-house product designer developing concept art and illustrations for use in home decor, toys, collectibles and so on. For the past couple of years I've been freelancing from home working on a variety of client and personal projects from children's books to product design, among other odds and ends.

    Quick sketch revision and coloring that I did tonight. I had a sketch I'd done several months ago, and decided to redo it. Then I tweeked it some more and colored it in Photoshop.

    About a 35 minute sketch from a photo of my sister in one of her costumes. She likes to dress up and play pretend. Gives me some interesting character references, though.

    Yikes, I can see that I desperately need to get in some practice on sketching hands again.

    Quick Sketch

    Colored variation of the above sketch:

    Another 30 minute pencil portrait sketch. Just some contrast and practice from the usual concept art that I do during the day as a toy designer.

    This past week was especially busy because in addition to our usual art log projects, we had an internal contest between two design teams to present the "Next Big Thing" to our bosses. My team won, YAY!! Both teams came up with some pretty cool product ideas...and some interesting ways to present them. Some of these product concepts may actually be in stores in the next year or two.

    As a pat on the back, each of us got a $100 Am Ex Gift Card and a $400 lunch for both teams to celebrate with next week. On the other hand, they expect us to outperform ourselves for the next 3 sessions that they want to schedule next for other product categories. D'oh!

    Good stuff, Tatiana. I'm curious though, what did they say was the marketing issue about your stuff?

    What was the marketing issue? I'm not marketing myself like I should be. Hardly anyone (other than people that I directly work with) know about my artwork.

    And the people that I know that I don't work with (like I already knew Marc from the Dallas Sketchgroup) that could point me to prospective jobs, didn't know how good my portfolio is and/or that I was looking for work.

    He suggested that I get more active on forums like ConceptArt and CGTalk, as well develop a portfolio to target the game industry (I had too many Barbarians...ha...and needed more environments and weapons).

    Wyvern sketch

    Sketch
    tatiana's sketchbook

    Sketch coloring progress in Photoshop
    tatiana's sketchbook

    I'm in the middle of alot of new product design concepts for work, so I haven't been hitting my personal sketchbook as much after I get home. sigh. But I did start a new wyvern concept which, once it's finished, I'll be posting in the Dragon thread in "It's Finally Finished".

    Here's the sketch and the start of where I left off in the first pass of coloring...maybe about 10 minutes worth of Photoshoping. I haven't added in the object that the wyvern is chasing... and I know that I need to tweek the right wing. It's a bit too small, probably should also be bent a bit since that's helping support the weight of the wyvern as it's turning quickly to snap at...whatever it's chasing.

    This thread is turning out to be pretty sweet. You present a great variety of great stuff. It seems like each style of yours would be very effective for the audience I imagine they would each target. keep posting
