Jyou's limitless sketchpad
I'm working on character design. If anyone had any pointers for a aspiring character artist i would love to learn as much as i can! :D I graduated highschool in 2010 and since then have started seriously considering character illustration and graphic design as a career. I do mostly sketches on my sketchpad (meaning not much digital art for now)
my favorite character artists are tetsuya nomura, shunya yamashita and hyung tae kim among others.
Thank you for stopping by!!!
Some Gauntlet Studies/compositions I worked on yesterday
These are Studies for the Crimson Daggers contest I'm entering. The task was to try and redesign the cover of an old arcade game called Gauntlet (I've never heard of it before.lol). The focus to create an appealing cover and composition. Check it out --> http://crimsonbloodsports.blogspot.com/
Tried to work on composition here. One on the right is suppose to be a cross but I don't think the Horizontal and vertical areas are clear enough for it to be considered a "cross" composition.
The composition to the left is meant to be an "L" composition.
Uploading new art now~ please wait a moment <3
@lemmingclone Yes, it helps. Eventually I'd like to just draw people (because character design is what i want to do) but illustrators should be well rounded, so, I wanna practice everything o:
yes i'll focus on the line. thanks for the suggestion about powdered graphite :) i always thought the bad smudging was because i didn't use a smudge-stick or something ): but getting powder graphite to smudge sounds kind of fun and more practical.
but anyway, I think i'm going to do a mega-picture upload about once a week from now on. I'll draw everyday but i won't upload them until thursday night. spending 2 hours scanning,resizing, and properly responding to comments everyday just isn't practical @_@, so i'm reserving it to one day. (if that doesn't work i'll change of course.)
@shockowafel thank you hun :D i agree, i should probably just stick to humans but as long as i keep drawing at least I'll establish some kind work-ethic/work flow. that's important to me right now.
