Ayla P.'s Sketchbook
Hi all! I decided to go ahead and stop being shy and make a sketchbook thread. It'll take me a little bit to get my newest works up here, so for starters I'll post a couple of my favorite older pieces.
I'm only 17 (June 22, 1990), I'm a senior in high school right now, and looking for a good art college to go to for hopefully Special Effects Design.
I've been learning how to draw since I was about 5, knew that's what I wantde to do with my life, but didn't see it as anything but a hobby because I didn't think I could make a living off of it (yes, I really did think about that kind of crap when I was five years old...that's probably why I act like a child now.). Then when I was 11, I found out I could do art professionally, so I've been teaching myself every day since then. I've been self-taught completely up until I started my senior year (retarded, I know, but they always took me out of art classes...even though I need 4 to graduate...). So anyway, crit hard please, I want to learn as much as I can! (Duh)
This one is Sarah and Jareth from Labyrinth
This one was done January 4, 2007.
And this one is a picture of John Wayne for my grandmother. (My camera took a not very nice picture, but it was the best I could do for the moment D: )
This one was done June 8, 2007.
I know there's a lot of mistakes with these, and I can see a lot of them, but please tell me some mistakes you guys see with them. I'm sure I can't see all of them, so any crits would be lovely.

This is one I did for art class. It's V from V For Vendetta (my favorite movie) It was one of my first times using India ink and a calligraphy pen, so I think it turned out pretty good. Again please, any critique would be helpful on this one. I know the anatomy is a little off (I used a reference picture from another artist who made those mistakes, and I didn't have time to fix them D: ), but I need help on maybe some ink technique. I really liked working with it and I want to do more ink pictures in the future.
Done on December 7, 2007.
And this is a 3 minute doodle I did with my little brother and sister when they were trying out window markers. I wanted to test them out too.

This is something I drew a while ago. Decided to slap some color on it and shade it in Photoshop to demonstrate how to use the burn/dodge tool to someone. No, the picture is not traced, the only thing that was referenced was the face. It's my own creation of what Deadpool would look like with a symbiote. Shaded in about a half an hour, I'd say, so it's not too well done. Wasn't meant to be, it was just for a demonstration.

very nice, nice work with the dodge and burn tool. focus on the details and shading. give the darkest the most depth and the lightest with lines. dont over do your work with lines, only shades.
For the Vendetta drawing, it couldve been better without the outline, just the shades and the lighting. hope this helps

Ya deadpool is a cool character , but he looks kinda massive for a deadool-symbiot. My advice is shrink his muscle mass , his hands to and draw like muscle texture over and burns like you know , deadpool has burns . Try to think of him as a deadpool on steroyds , but more like spiderm man when he got a symbiote. But my first advice wold be , work your anatomy , draw more gesture poses ...

Thank you guys for the help!
Yeah, I've been working on my anatomy for awhile since the last picture was drawn, been trying to get everything down. I've even just finished an anatomy class so hopefully that will help some too. And with the V drawing, I used a direct reference and wasn't really putting much thought into what I thought the picture should have, it was mainly just to experiment with ink. I hadn't really used it until then. But next time I do a drawing like that I will definitely keep that in mind! Thank you guys so much for the help, I need it!

This is a cover I'm doing for my manga I'm making (school project). This is about 7-8 hours of work total, so far.
I know the anatomy isn't the best, but I'm learning

This is the first page of the comic. I know it has a hellva lot of mistakes, and I see a couple...though I think it might be too late to fix them (well, maybe not, since I just got a tablet ).
I am really new to making comics/manga/whatever, and to inking said pages, so most of this is experimental stuff for me. If anyone could give me any crits, that would be really awesome. Please? Because I REALLY need to get better.

Cool, thanks for the tips! I'll make sure to not make so many lines from now on and clean up the boxes. And I don't know what font to use...any suggestions on a certain style that would look good with it?
