    Freshpaints Sketchy-book

    New Work on later pages!


    Edited the first post because I wanted to put a new preview image up.

    I am a freelance illustrator living in Rochester, NY. I am interested in character creation and book illustration as well as other things. Newer posts are towards the back. I would love some feedback on my figure drawing, characters, use of color, or whatever else you think I should work on.

    Hey Fresh, those figure studies are real sharp, I especially like the standing one of the girl with the black hair. That latest WIP with the fish-head is really sweet too, very interesting fleshtone rendering on it. Lets see some more

    Great feel and look to your work. I dic the weirdness of the mushrooms and the fish lady. The only thing i would suggest on the fish lady is to show more stretch in the neck. Right now it feels like that is the position the skin is used to being in while i would assume the head would be "naturally" pointing ahead. Keep posting your good work!

    Some more figure drawing pieces. The figure drawings are from an independent session some of the students at my school hold, because the models for the normal session are pretty awful.

    There are some other random sketches...the chicken and the astronaut are for a poster I'm working on.

    The last two are for an illustration project. An suggestions on those? The one with the woman I painted on illustration board with watercolor...I realized as I started working on it that it was a dumb idea, but the campus store here doesnt carry watercolor paper. Still, I would love some feedback!

    It's been a long time since I've made a sketchbook post and I've done a lot in the interim, but I wanted to post some newer sketch from an oil painting I have been working on. The first are char sketches for it and then a quick value study I did in photoshop.

    Hey fresh, those designs for the the priestess/witch type characters are really great. If your value test is any indication the final painting is gonna be sweet, I can't wait to see it with color.

    Recent painting that I did of a race of people who I am calling the turtle people. They have somewhat of a reptilian appearance, they live near ponds and hunt turtles and rats among other things. They're around a foot tall. It's considered attractive for men to have pot bellies.

    I want to actually keep up with a sketchbook this time...I sketch daily so shortage of images generally isn't a problem, but last time I just got lazy and didn't keep up with it (and admittedly got a little discouraged).

    So feedback is more than welcome, even if you think it looks horrible I'd like to know why and what would make it better.



    Acrylic/marker/pencil/pen sketches, some tribal style chicks, and nude peeps from the figure drawing club that I help run on my campus (because our art department only has two figure drawing classes and only a female model that falls asleep). And a sketch for a painting. Suggestions on that piece, especially compositionally would be appreciated.

    Man, your style is so unique! Kind of reminds me very vaguely of Tim Schaffer! Keep 'em comin'!

    Grandmassa Mr. Spect and Malakai SinClair: thanks!

    Here's the final shot of my mechanical creature, which I am actually relatively happy with! (so rare) I took some creative license with the mechanics of the legs, partially because I didn't want all of the hydrolics in there, and partially because I don't have enough experience drawing them and haven't figured where they should properly go/attach, and the gears too.

    Just a small upload. Final oil painting to the value sketch I posted a few posts back. I'm too afraid to post it in finally finished! I don't think its quite good enough.. I've never really gotten much feedback in the critique section, not too sure why. :/ But that aside I did want to post it here so if you want to give me some suggestions go at it! I had to edit it some because I don't have the best materials for shooting oil paintings, if people have suggestions for getting good oil painting reproductions that would be sweet!

    I totally blanked on this piece which was dumb because I wanted to show this study. I felt like I learned a lot from this piece, cause I started a little exercise for myself in learning accurate color. I took a sketch off of the intertubes, filled in the background color on a new canvas, and then sketched out the girls face. Then I chose what I thought was the base skin color, and then checked it with the photo. Same for shadows, highlights, etc. It was really good cause even though I was pretty close in terms of value, usually I would be off in hue a little or saturation. Usually I was too desaturated, and for this piece I often went too green. The midtones on her cheeks between light and shadow were really saturated and surprised me, but I also learned that I could usually mix colors to get the right greens and those I often got very close.
    I also exaggerated her features a bit, especially her neck, but that was more for me to keep it interesting and not a strait out copy.

    Anyway, I figured this was good practice, took me 30min in painter. I'd like to do it again, maybe once a week if possible, though I'd rather be able to do it once a night. Id also really like to watch battlestar right about now or Halo3 with my house mates (haha, I am a girl living with 7 other guys, its ridiculous!), or read a book (that's been way too long) but I have to get my work done and I love the act of making art and thats more important to me right now I guess!

    New SB

    I was looking through my old work the other day and comparing it to my new work, and was fairly happy with the progress I made...and then I went and looked at some blogs like this one: blog and then this one: blog(both of these guys are CA member btw) and got horrible depressed because I am so far from where I feel like I should be and I feel like I am walking completely blindly. How do I paint like that? Which brushes do I use? Where else do I need to improve and how do I do it? Isn't that where professors are supposed to help? I think my most helpful professor right now is the figure modeling/sculpture professor who inspired me to by 4lbs of plasticine.

    Gotta love art crises which leave one asking why I'm doing this in the first place, and lets off at I'd freak out more if I did anything else.

    Well, a good side of all the art drama was that I made myself a new sketchbook, which involves me cutting all the paper and then painting the cover. I don't remember how I originally got into doing this, but this newest escapade was inpired from a visit to Fredonia from James Gurney, who brought along his neat little sketchbooks. I decided to make one, so i could carry it around to Fredonia's food court and elsewhere to do a little stealth sketching.

    New Sketches

    The third sketch is for the last Chow; The Plague Doctor...I like doing chow's for the ideas, but actually attempting to finish them for the vote makes me anxious.

    Last image is shameless WoW fanart... /slap

    So a question...I seem to have a great lack of response to this sb. Is it because my work just seems shallow and there is nothing to say, or is it really that bad, or is it just that I'm not updating enough? Just curious...because I can't improve when no one says anything.

    I love your paintings, very creative. The only crit I can think of is that sometimes they look a little busy compositionally, but it seems to all work as a whole. Keep it up.

    Finish version of the elvish archer, posted here because I don't think its good enough for the finally finished section, and its really just a character sketch. Also some watercolor and pencil/pen sketches for oil paintings.
