Scholar's Tower by juliedillon Scholar's Tower by juliedillon
This was an assignment for my perspective class, utilizing an isometric perspective grid. I had always sucked so much at perspective (still do, but not quite so badly ^^) so I was happy I was able to make this not look like a complete mess. :) This was done with micron pens and prismacolor markers.

Hello there, is it okay to use your artwork on my website, I will credit your name with the image and link to your Deviantart page.

Wow, this reminded me a lot of this scene in the Whispered World game:…
I loved it's mood. Maybe you will try a colored remake of your drawing someday I think it would look killer with your painting skills. :D

Splendid! I love it :-)

Good god. You should probably stop doing art because you're making me feel bad about myself.

Kidding, but seriously, the level of detail is amazing, and I really enjoy the multitude of fine points that tie the whole room together. ie the man's robe where it touches the floor and the books tumbling down the steps.

Keep it up!

I'm taking the same class now, and I'm going nuts!

LOL wow... funny coincidence.

hey jdillon82.
Congrats man, I'm in Perspective class now, and your line drawing is used as the Homework 1 example :).
I know it's probably hard to calculate, but have any number you could throw at me as to how many hours the Line drawing took for you to make?
juliedillon Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2011
Ha, really? That's awesome. XD It's been a while since I made it, but while I worked hard on it, I don't think it took an overly ridiculous amount of time. I know I got it done in time for the deadlines without any major problem. Maybe... 5-7 hours for the line drawing? If you look closely you can see the linework isn't especially precise or nuanced.

I really like this!

I've had this image in my 'to be sketched' pile for quite a while. I finally got around to sketching it last week while at a camp with the kids. Thanks for the inspiration. I really enjoyed sketching all the nuances of this image. My sketch can be found here:

You have an incredibly fantastic understanding of how to express the world around you through the visual medium. I'm curious what experience brought about this understanding, have you received any extensive formal training?

By the way, I like the use of what think are constellations upon the orb, its a nice touch that adds to the overall beauty of the work.

my teacher used this as an example in my perspective class. I must have the same teacher. Very Very impressive. I wish I could do something this good.
Tallgeeseneo Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2007
I want to get this good. It reminds me of F.F. Tatics on playstation. The part when you go get steel worker 8 ( think that is his name) and Cloud Great stuff
Newburgart Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2007  Professional Digital Artist

juliedillon Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2007
Really?! :D I didn't know that! I was all intimidated by the stuff they'd show my class as examples! It's definitely a challenging class. I hope you do well! :)
Newburgart Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
haha, thought you might get a kick out of that, I know I would, yea I love the class but it's tough...
animadevia Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2007
I love the perspective and the light. And the cats. They look a bit like birma cats. Are they?
I wish I could have a libary like that. Just like that. :worship:
