    Down The Stairs - Updated 10/20/11!

    Okay, so I've been lurking here for a month or two and I am finally getting around to posting my own sketchbook, after much nagging from my little brother.

    There are so many awesome artists here, and so friendly too! I'm quite excited and really hoping I will be able to improve faster with everyones help~ XD

    So there isn't too many interesting things to post right now, mostly studies from Bridgman or random little doodles.

    I'm really sorry about the rather crappy quality, they were taken in my basement with my camera due to a lack of scanner at the moment =\.... Next updates will have better quality!!

    Yup i agree with coldrum keep working on those fundamentals and you will far and keep posting, the more you post the more we can help,another suggestion that might help is when your copying from a book really think about it your not copying the image for memory your copying it for Understanding!!! if you can figure that out you will waste a lot less time in the begging of your studies it took me along time to figure it out anyway good luck now get to it!!!.

    coldrum - Thank you so much, I really do appreciate it =)

    aussiedeza - Thank you so much!!! That is probably -the- best piece of advice I have received in a long time and I will definitely take it to heart. Again, thank you~

    Oh dear... It's been quite a while since I posted x_X aaah, I got busy with preparing for conventions and stuff. I really wish I had more to show for not posting in a month and a half but... D=

    So uh... Onto the art =)

    Mmm, this one I forgot to put into the last post so I figured I'd throw it in here

    Hey Slinkybabes; You have such a good start here and you've improved by quite a bit since last year. Keep going at it ! These are great studies and it looks like you're already benefiting from them. Cheers, missy!

    These are great.
    Good work with the bridgeman sketches.
    Very nice pencil work.
    The messy portrait is really cool.

    Milled - thanks so much love XD Your encouragement is enough to make one melt

    Ash888 - Thank you so much!! I really appreciate it~!


    Just a small update for now, I'm going to try and update at least every couple days because it isn't like I'm not drawing. And I will try to keep it true to a real sketchbook and post everything, even if I despise it.

    Yes, MORE bridgman studies. They really help me to calm down and get in the mood to draw =)

    Half a face I did in about 15 minutes on and off while watching my boyfriend play Metal Gear Solid 2. I'm so bad for not finishing them =\

    Another small update tonight, and it's nothing exciting. A couple scribbles and a study

    Last night a friend told me to draw in ms paint, so I scribbled something up quickly. It's ugly but XD
    Attachment 385338

    I took the time today to redo it a little. Not extremely pleased with the results but =\ *shrug
    Attachment 385339

    And then I did a really quick study of a statue I found on google or something?

    A couple more updates. Hopefully I will be able to update again with what I'm working on right now.

    Mmmm, didn't like how this one turned out but
    Attachment 391244

    And then I doodle these faces to practice because I was so unhappy with how the one above turned out
    Attachment 391245

    Then, over the last two days while I was at my boyfriends house I did these bridgman studies/scribbles, as well as a character design that I am still working on

    Here is the character design I was hoping to finish today.
    It's really sketchy, and the colours are flat and choppy but I didn't need anything super detailed. Suggestions on improving her design and making it more interesting would really be appreciated!!

    Hmm... if you were doing it as a traditional medium study (oils), I'd have more advice. Anyways, I looked up the painting and the colors for the hair and skin tone are a little warmer than your recreation. Now that you have the basis colors laid out, you can go back and refine the colors more. The drawing itself looks good, the whole thing definately feels like the original already. Can't wait to see another update on this one. :-)

    Oh! And the studies you are doing look great. I really like the hands in your first post, they have really good line quality.

    Mmm, sorry for the shoddy update, I've been somewhat lacking inspiration recently, my mind has been on other things XD

    Uh, so just some... lion drawings? Got a picture in my head and figured I'd practice drawing lions. I labeled them with numbers to show the order I drew them in just to (hopefully!) show the amount I improved from the first to the last =)

    This was also to help myself practice observing details quickly so I didn't spend more than 15 minutes on each of them.

    Any suggestions would be great!
