    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    Hey, all.


    This sketchbook will have, hopefully, daily updates. I'll try to do a new digital sketch every day, but if I can't for some reason, I'll post some old sketch to make up for it, so there will hopefully still be daily updates even while I get my butt in gear.

    Thank you for looking.

    Comments and crits are always welcome!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Not quite sure how it'll work with such a large number of files.

    Down the list:
    1. Architectural study directly in ink. Local gothic cathedral.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    2. Excuse to draw those ugly fluffy striped towels.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    3. Cartoony painting for an intro-to-art class I had to take to graduate from college.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    4. Random fantasy skies.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    5. Unfinished piece from a few years back. Ugly background -> part of the reason for the random fantasy skies.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    6. What better thing to draw while waiting to be kicked out of your home than your hands?
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    7. Landscape... somewhere in Pennsylvania or NJ or Connecticut, I think.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    8. My friend posed on a sunny day.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    9. My cat. White. Blue eyes. Deaf. Very cute.
    Ylla's Sketchbook (Update Jan 27th)

    These are all old. I'm posting this to get creative juices flowing and to force myself to do more sketches.

    Wish me luck!

    Feel free to rip things apart. They're old, they won't get changed, I know that someone (like Seedling maybe if I'm lucky? ) will probably do the standard "Go draw things from life" speech thing... oh well. I'm here to learn.

    I like your style, the art may lack detail (as in folds, wrinkles and textures), but in some of the pieces (especially the lady on the chair) you get a Van-Goughish vibe.

    Have any more recent work?

    Nice cat, warm colours. Also I like that asiyat picture too.

    Is the hand drawn from life? would be a very good excercise if it is.

    Keep it up, i'd like to see more

    JMC > Well, these are sketches. Some of them are also old. I have more detailed and more recent art in my online art gallery, you're welcome to check that out.

    Van Gogh? O.o Wow, that's probably the last thing I'd think anybody would ever compare me to... Van Gogh and Klimpt.

    Hazaeon > Yeah, the hands were drawn from life. I downloaded a 30 day trial of that sketching program by Alias, and tested it out by drawing my (left) hand. That's why the two hands are in different styles -- I was trying out different tools in the program. But in the end, I like Photoshop better, so the rest of the digital stuff is in Photoshop.

    Some more oldies.

    Violin. Done in Photoshop in 2000 to insert into a picture I was coloring that was inked by another artist. She drew a mini-guitar instead of a violin, so I had to do a violin from scratch.

    A furry chick. This is what happens when you don't have a good sense of color and randomly try color pencil colors until something so ugly comes out that you don't want to continue. The sketch's still nice, though.

    I got inspired by Seedling's oil-painting-a-day sketchbook to do my own random-object-drawing-on-surface sketch, except in Photoshop.

    Pigma micron pen. Blue. No label because I peel off the labels for color pens and leave them on for black pens. Makes it easier to find the pen I need by touch when digging through pencil cases.

    jdeegz > thank you

    new object -- the pepper grinder. not as neatly textured as i'd like it to be (the actual object is kinda scratched up and has wood grain in the oddest places), but i ran out of time (i've been setting a time-limit of 20 min to these).

    Hey, cool! I'm flattered. And I look forward to seeing where you go with the still-lifes. :-) Looking good so far!

    Hey, that beach pic reminds me of something. I've seen some of N.C. Wyeth's paintings in exhibit. It isn't visible in photos of his work, but up close you can see colored outlines around the elements in his images, and they are often blue.

    Watch out for the airbrush setting in Photoshop - it's so smooth that you have to work harder to put interesting detail back into an image. It's often better to work with semi-transparent hard-edged brushes, at least through the first few passes of an image.
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Seedling > in these last two, I've mostly been working with a hard-edged brush on varying transparency... and with the pepper shaker, trying to put in some detail with a tiny scribbly version of the brush... trying to focus on color and texture and not on smoothness and photo-look-like-ness.

    can you tell me what the airbrush setting DOES? i've been using photoshop since about 1999, and i remember version 4... but ive never been able to tell what the airbrush button does... i can never see a difference between it on and it off. ^^;;

    Warground > thanks!

    New one -- a plastic "travel" mug with metallic finish. I hate the shadow -- I tried it a good five times and never really got it right.
