    Jillian's Sketchbook Wooot!

    Hello all!

    So it was suggested that I get a sketchbook, since I've been lurking about critiquing and the like with nothing to show of my own. So here it is!
    Please Critique the hell out of me, but of course I don't need to tell you guys that. I'm looking to improve, I REALLY want to be a better artist, I hope that posting here, will help me in my goals.

    Thanks for reading, now for some eye candy:



    This sketchy mess is how I draw, naturally, when I don't force myself to use a bigger brush. It's cool and all, but I want to move more towards realism. I'm a huge fan of linda bergkvist, and craig mullins. That's my Ideal. And I can do pretty okay, when I'm copying a reference, wrinkle for wrinkle.. but it doesn't feel as creative, and as "mine" as I would like it to be.

    Here is what most people consider to be my best work:


    I like it okay, but I'm not as happy as I would like to be with it. Lots of references used, painting and picture side by side.

    Although this one isn't as good, technically I didn't use any references, and feel a lot more pride and ownership for it:

    another piece I did from black and white reference:

    another painting from reference:


    and finally:

    Yeah I know the fish kinda suck

    Thanks for viewing,
    comments, critiques, general chatter are all welcome!

    And finally, my thumbnail for the thread

    Through the night comes the light that brings the day.
    Through your mind goes the thought that forms the clay.
