    Eerin's Sketchbook - UPDATED 5/2

    BETTER STUFF LATER ON > > >

    (at least I think so?)



    EDIT:
    Currently 18, probably going to AAU this coming fall, and needing to get tons of times better at art (so if you have any suggestions or critiques, please share! ).







    Constructive critiques (and paint overs) are most welcome =)

    Please take care of me~

    I LOVE the second one! it reminds me of a Buddhist statue: totally immersed in nature. The perspective on the shattered pieces drawing is really interesting. That must have been difficult to draw.
    Awesome first post. I'm in the same boat as you. I'm about to make the switch from Lurker to Art-Sharer.

    Davezilla - thanks! =) The second one is indeed a Buddhist statue. And the shattered pieces you were referring to are actual mirror shards glued to the artwork.

    Forgot to add that I shortened the hands for the piece with the tattered flag but I still think there are a lot of proportional mistakes. Not to mention the fact that I'm not particularly fond of the way she is sitting.

    And here's a sketch I did a while back:

    Yes, she must have very flexible knees to sit that way
    Apart from that the attitude looks good to me.
    Maybe you could work the lighting to make it more dramatic.

    I also like the last sketch. Do you plan to color it?

    And welcome to CA!

    Leo Ki - Thanks! =) and yes, at some point in the past I did plan to color it, but I never got around to it. Maybe I will get around to it sometime in the future though... =)

    Here are two stuff I've been working on.
    First one is a work in progress. The second one is inspired by Andrew Jones.

    Hey Eerin - some really cool stuff you've done here - I love the flow and character they have

    I hope you finish that one of the lady with the bow and only one hand so far... her arms do look as if they may be connecting to quite wide shoulders for her body though - otherwise a lovely concept - she'd work perfect in a sunny woodland glade or entering a cave in the side of a mountain valley...

    keep up the great work and studies - look forward to seeing more

    The7Artist7 Thanks! =) I actually do not know whether I will ever finish that image. I have a tendency to completely abandon something once I grow tired of it and move on =(

    Oranje Joe Thank you~ but she's actually in plate mail and not a bra xD (but given the linework, I can see why it looks so )

    Two more little things I did a while back... (yes its the infamous overused PS butterfly brush )
    A reference photo was used for the tiger's head (photo made into a tiger head painter brush).

    Welcome Eerin!

    That´s a great start of a sketchbook. Well, there is no much to criticize for real.
    You are very good at characters, especially their faces look nice.
    Also nice to see you try different techniques and workflows for your paintings.

    Mhh... maybe some boys or men next time ^^

    Cheers

    Xaya

    Hehe no worries, I do the same! I'm liking those last two - the tiger looks like it's on drugs or something! 'whoa - I knew I shouldn't have eaten that hippy'

    Keep up the great work!

    really like the watercolour look on your character in post 9
    Love the pattern and colour of your style makes each piece seem full of life and character!
