    I really enjoy your landscapes, they have a lot of life and color to them.
    Buuuuut for some reason I enjoy your figure studies even more, maybe its the simplicity of them. the map idea of places around the world is fun



    thanks for posting your comments on my sketch book also, it means a lot


    cant wait to see more

    Slainte!

    Hey, thanks, I feel they are my weakest area.
    Been mostly focusing on environments, but I can
    scan more of the drawing sketchbook. . .

    AmontilladoAg Thanks! You know Teigrob's work?
    She blows me away with her character work, some of
    the best I've seen. It is a pleasure to collaborate with her.

    We are finally starting a children's book together and looking
    for the right style, Teigrob will draw the characters, and I will
    create the environments.

    Here are some of my past client projects that are similar to what we
    are looking for, but this is VERY old color pencil work.

    I am being drawn to Trina Schart Hyman's work for this project:
    http://www.ortakales.com/illustrators/Hyman.html
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0316...26#reader-link

    I love the way she added little images in the borders to enhance
    the visual storytelling.

    Most of the work I did for them was geared towards
    their educational materials. These were from a series
    of transparencies that third grade teachers used on a
    projector. So if you were in the third grade about 10 years
    ago, then you might have seen them!

    Great environments, love your brushwork, too
    I also like the borders...some of them remind me of a famous Russian illustrator, you might've heard of him, Ivan Bilibin...

    Looking forward to more

    Yes, I love his work!
    But I think you are referring to the images above
    that were done by Trina Schart Hyman, and she
    was definitely influenced by him. I only posted her
    work as an example of an inspiration to me.

    Nice! I did some illustrations, animation and backgrounds for a multimedia educational series for Houghton-Mifflin back in the early nineties...was my first "real art job" after I graduated from university.

    Hey thanks for posting in my sketchbook, I took your advice to heart and added some new stuff.

    I had to come check out your page and I'm glad I did...WOW those environments and landscapes are absolutely mind-blowing! I REALLY love I think it's the thrid one down where the perspective is a terrace overlooking some canyon and there's a statue in a little alcove on the right. Words fail me. I mean WOW. It looks like something captured from a movie or something! Simply amazing!

    I can't do anything near like that, but you've inspired me nonetheless

    Cheers

    Very nice sketchbook you have going here, I'm definitely loving those environments especially the sets in posts #7 and #8 I like how harmonious your colors are in those, very relaxing to look at.

    Those parasite studies are looking pretty slick too, the first one on the left in the second row looks particularly sinister, like it made it's home in an insect's head or something. Also your figure drawings are looking good too, consider posting more maybe?

    I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this sketchbook in the future, so keep those updates coming.

    By the way thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

    spazazo Glad you like my environments!
    darknight Thanks! I enjoy making mattes for unreal places.
    tatiana Early Nineties?! We were both working for them
    at the same time. Cool.
    Viking Raider Thanks! I had a blast working on that one.
    The I started with a photo of an iceberg and challenged myself to make
    it look like stone, it is the arch. BTW, I added the image ref file.
    Sofa King I will have to scan my figure drawings,
    so when I get a chance I will. Thanks for the complement on the harmonious
    colors, I have a hard time not painting the Golden Hour, can ya' tell?!

    I worked on this for a few hours today, but it needs about 80 more. . .

    stunning dragon man. love the soft coloring style (specificly on the bears, ducks/swans) makes me think of pastels.

    Been a while since the last time I stopped in, working way too much in July to cover the next couple months.... Love the Updates!!! I will have to go back and find the link to the club, so I can oogle all of the work you guys have been working on. I am sooooooo horrible at posting updates. I really really really enjoy your environments (still eagerly awaiting a tutorial *hint hint*) I started teaching digital scrapbooking at WCC, and it is a ton of fun. I will be posting the in-class tutorials on my personal site in the next day or so. I always dreaded standing in front of a crowd, being a talking head... and I've ended up as an instructor... go figure...LOL

    Once again love the updates!! looking forward to seeing more

    Recent EOW. I thought it said Dark Faerie Grotto, not Ghetto, so my take on it was a bit different.

    The once sparkling cavern has been run over with dark faeries, who have polluted its pristine waters
    that now drips a toxic green. The tunnels are filled with malcontented faeries who
    feed on each other because they have destroyed all the local livestock and villagers.

    ikuru Thanks! I photographed a creek close to my cabin
    and worked from that.

    Skrunchey Congrats on the teaching job! The jitters go away quickly.
    Eventually I will get that tutorial up, I promise!

    Spacemanchuck I think your color is coming along quite well.
    Thanks for stopping by!

    Did a quick sketch of a sad dragon while watching scifi channel.
    It has problems, but I was forcing myself to draw something besides
    environments, without reference.

    hey Kathryn, you have some nice work here, your environments are always nice to look at. The last one especially has a very nice painterly look. While your environments are top notch, I think you could use some good old human life drawing, to spiff up your figures( if you aren't already). I think you are most interested in doing bgs, but I believe if you start doing more figure work, your bgs will have another aspect of greatness. You have serious potential, don't let your figures hold you back, get the fired up, and start drawing more humans, from life and imagination. Gogogogo. And if you're already doing it, then great!, keep it up!

    Ive been sitting here trying to come up with the words but all that comes to mind is WOW.
    Amazing environments, the kind of pictures you just want to step into and experience.
    Keep posting.

    Oomgawa your collaboration on post 33 reminds me a little of Mabel Lucy Atwell's style. I never much liked the way she did mouths, though. It's probably the colour choices that remind me.
    I prefer yours!

    alesoun "Oomgawa your collaboration on post 33 reminds me a little of Mabel Lucy Atwell's style."
    I love her work, and I like her low chroma colors better! Thanks!
    These were actually not collabs, but were done for various clients, hence the bright colors!

    trp "Amazing environments, the kind of pictures you just want to step into and experience."
    Then I have succeeded in my vision! Thank you.

    agelaos "You have serious potential, don't let your figures hold you back, get fired up, and start drawing more humans"
    Oh, man, are you calling me out, Dennis?! You know I mostly don't do them because
    I am picking my battles right now, enviros. But there are a couple of environments
    that do have human indications, but I promise to add them from now on!

    First 6 hours progress on current EOW. . . advance winter encampment
    Hopefully I'll be able to spend more time before the deadline.






    The advance encampment holds 50 men maximum,
    assigned to keep an eye on, and taunt the city.
    The knowledge of the advancing army is known to all
    the frightened inhabitants, but the progress up the
    glacier is slow, with siege engines often falling
    through crevasses.

    Eventually I'll add some characters. . . because I promised Agelaos!

    Oooh....*drools on keyboard*

    You want my pencil?? I want your brush! *envies* And don't worry, I fully intend to keep drawing. This one illustration a month is proving quite doable.
