Roberta Stroud Vaughan

Roberta Stroud Vaughan

Roberta is mainly a fantasy artist who's prefered subect is people.

I started drawing with the serious goal of being an artist at an early age. My father, Esmond Stroud, is an exceptional artist and was a big influence on me, but while he was a master at oil painted scenery, I leaned towards drawing people. I've always been drawn towards people as subjects and enjoy the challenge of trying to capture personality on paper.

I mainly work with pencil and/or ink, Prismacolor pencils, Photoshop.

Please do not ask me for free pictures as I feel that, while I'm a passable artist, my time and effort are still worth somthing.

WOW........ what else is there to say? and ignore that rude person no sane person could think the same way he does about your art. GOOD JOB!

Art is amazing...I'm desperatly hoping you'll do more Wheel of Time art. It's funny how people who can't draw at all love to critic masterpieces.

I love your well deserved Mod's choices! 'Dark Fairy' shows imagination, and I appreciate the way it fills the page. 'Coldsnap' is a great title, very illustrative and different form your other pieces. That hair, very nouveau - would like to see more like that! You nailed the colors better there. Keep up the good work. 12

Hello. I guess I don't need to tell you that your work is truly amazing!!!You have one of the most beautiful galleries I have seen here on Elfwood. I especially love your pencil work. My father is an artist too, I don't think I will ever be able to fill his shoes, though..I can't wait to see more of your work..you should really try this as a profession.2

:-) Roberta Stroud Vaughan replies: "Thank you Pamela ...and I'm definitely trying 2"

Hey Roberta.. I saw you giving tips for adobe to the dragon pic just now.. I was wondering.. if it's not to much trouble.. do you also know how to make the rectangle/square tool make boxes without filling them in? I used to be able to do that with a program called Director in High School, and now I'm trying to learn adobe and I'm literally like tearing my hair out here just trying to do some comic book box layouts. ^^;

Even the best commercial artist use photos as a reference.

Hi Roberta,

It has been a long time since we communicated. I hope you are doing well. I just want to let you know my book finally out there! I am very happy, but I’m trying to be cool, like this kind of think happens to me every day. It is now for sale from Amazon. I haven’t seen it yet. I’m expecting my copies any day. Then I;ll forward you one.

Check out my website. www.knowyourneed.com

Thank you again and have a Merry Christmas.


:-) Roberta Stroud Vaughan replies: "Hi Joe;
I am doing well, thank you.
I’m looking forward to recieving a copy of your book.
I had planned to have a full color version of the image posted here in October, but with packing and moving (sold one house, bought another) I hadn’t had time to finish it.

I haven’t set up the new email account (different server now) but will be doing so within the next couple of days. Will email you the new home and email addresses. Phone # is still the same.

Hope you and your family had a very merry Christmas!"
