The Art of JennyM (Update: 11/6/08) Sketches, digital works galore!
As I write this, I only joined this afternoon so I'm a newbie but I'm no rookie in the art realm. I sketched these first examples yesterday but I'll have more on the way, I hope you like animals!
These were refereced though and my first actual proper life drawing animals I've done in almost 2 years. I love these. My favourite is the deer, the deer jumping down was not referenced.
Feed back and constructive critisism is ALWAYS welcome!
Thanks for looking!

Yes, it certainly is obvious that you are not new to the art realm!
The truth will set you free,
but first it's gonna piss you off!

Good works so far. You are good at animals, though i would like to see some people eventually. Also, you don't need to mark your work unless it's completed or used for something commercially by yourself. If you choose to do so anyway, please make it small so that it does not interfere with the art. Just a little heads up so that you can get the best possible feedback.

Oh yeah, those copyright labels are silly. You don't need to do this, look around and see that even the best artists don't do that
While the animals are decently drawn they are all cartoony, this is most obvious with the cat especially the one in the top left with the open mouth rawring.

Thanks for your feedback everyone
Wooly - Yeah, I've been drawing since 2001 so I've come a long way since then. Thanks!
Stark - I'm going to try and borrow some Life Drawing books from the library because my school schedule is so busy I can't attend Life Drawing Classes. I have some old human figure drawings somewhere but I'll get these uploaded eventually.
n1va - I do appologise for those labels, seriously where I come from I've got it programmed that my artwork is vulnerable to theft (being a DA member, it's pretty common) I'm still new here so I'm learning this place fairly quickly. Hope this answers that section.
And about the cat, yes, admittingly I have a habit of drawing big cats fairly cartoony and it's a habit I'm trying to break out of. I've been drawing them like that for years, which is probably why the first two look more realistic.
I have no internet connection over the weekends (unless I go home to my family) so I won't be updating this for a few days, but hopefully by Monday you'll be seeing some new dumps.
Here's the next batch, OpenCanvas practicings, sorry about the watermarks folks. Again, your thoughts are very welcomed.

Cartoony isn't bad. I don't know why that would be a "problem" or anything. If it's your style, then go with it and take it somewhere new. I really like the cats. They have weight and look like they're moving. Very nice.
As for the watermarks...what's the point? Welcome to the digital age where music, movies and art are now public domain works. Creativity is no longer respected as intellectual property. If somebody wanted to steal these drawings bad enough, they'd pull them into PS and clone out the backgrounds or whatever needed to clean them up.
Anyway, I like your style and lighting quite a lot and hope to see more!

Thanks for the feedback guys
Everyone might just have to put up with my style because it can get very cartoony sometimes, especially with my current school project.
Snubbed: Well, if you and everyone says it's ok to post artwork without watermarks, that's fine by me. Makes me feel safer, but is it really that annoying to look at?
More dumpings in 2 batches:

I hate how those birds look.
This next batch is all from my current school project, I would kindly like to ask for no critique on this lot as this has already gone in for final assessment. Thank you
Hope you like Chinesey things! I had to upload some elsewhere because the uploading thingy wouldn't accept their size.

Nice renderings, man but something is terribly wrong with the anatomy of the first leg of those dragons (and that creature called Ching), especially with the upper arm part if you know what I mean. Dragons are often drawn with feline anatomy so I think you should check out this picture for refernce.
I don't think that even an over-muscular creature (like a dragon) should look so different from this as you drew.
Nice sketchbook anyway, keep posting!

Sorry for the lack of updates guys, school's been holding me back and I have a Dissertation to submit in 2 weeks time. But thank you to everyone again who has taken the time to give me feedback .
Novbert: When I did that first concept I didn't like the front legs, maybe it's because at the time I was working at A3 size in Photoshop, normally my judgement fails when working at that size. I appreciate you being honest though and that is a fabulous reference to that lioness you've given me.
There'll hopefully be more soon, you'll all get first notice .
