Fridas random doodles. Harsh critique wanted.
Hello there, welcome to my sketchbook.
My name is Frida I´m from Sweden. My goal is to be an illustrator. I have dabbled in it by doing smaller commissions for a few years and now it is time to put my back in to improving my skills so that I can expand my job opportunities and simply do more awesome looking art.
My medium of choise is my graphite pen but I am in the process of learning how to paint digitally.
Any kind of input and advice is most welcome.
Thank you for looking.

The first picture is a button for my online portfolio. You can find a link to it at the bottom of my post. Any thoughts about the portfolio would be most welcome.
I was supposed to work on a IP Telecom logo. Despite all my doodling I actually finished it.
I was trying to make the girl on the brown paper as curvy as possible without it looking ridiculous. I think I failed.

Material and texture study.
No comments eh! I guess I´l just upload some more stuff then.
First a quick study of some elderberry flowers that I did today.
A pig drawn from a photo
and two roleplaying character portraits. a halfling and a tiefling.
I´m taking my dog for a walk now and if I dont see any comments when I get back there will be hell to pay!...or maybe I will be somewhat cranky.
Lookin' good, Frida. I followed you over from your plaintive post on what's-her-name's thread, thinking your sketchbook was going to be some kind of graphic disaster area, but no. You have a very appealing style and a range of subjects. Things move very fast in the sketchbooks thread, so don't be disappointed if you get pushed off the bottom of the page before anyone comments. Just keep posting nice things from time to time!
Oh, and anybody who has a stoat on her front page is hokay by me (an ermine is a stoat in her Winter coat).
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook

Thanks for the encouragement I needed that.
I like little critters with pointy teeth. Stoats ar called Lekatt/Hermelin in Swedish.

I´m not very confident about my sketches and people can be so rude some times and stare over my shoulder, It always creeps me out. Anyway thank you very much timpaatkins. I like your work very much aswell.
Good vary good keep it up
Thank you very much Amir.

Under that pictures is some sketches of a siberian husky that I drew in the park today.
I´m also posting a character sketch. I could use some advice on shading and anatomy.
So I have been away for a while on a trip but I had a little time to jot something down in my sketchbook.
First we have a landscape picture. I was trying out a different sketching style. I really like the tree but the rest blows.
Then we have a picture of a Koi fish called Putte, a sketch of my dog Tellus. and a drawing of a magnolia flower that I drew from a photograph.
And I always have some time to spare to draw a roleplaying character or two. Heres a portrait of that woman you seen previously. I was trying to figure out, what her scars would look like.

Pretty nice life drawing you've done here!!!
The character shading's looks pretty well.
Keep it up!
I have been away visiting relatives. They have a little boy who is crazy about dragons. And I was asked to paint one on the door to his room in the new house they just bought.
And I did. First I drew a few sketches and the boy was to choose on that he liked. It turned out he didnt like any of them. So I made a fast sketch of the most cliche dragon I could think of, and he loved it.
I havnt been painting with real colours for years and it seemed to me that I forgot everything while working on the dragon. Ussually I take my time with a painting but I had to rush the work since I only had two days before I were going home. It´s not really finnished but the kid loves it and that whats most important I suppose.

I painted on of the dragons real quick, just for fun.
There is some very interesting stuff in here. Keep on drawing and sharing.
I really like how the dragon turned out even if it was very cliché.
Thanks for sharing!
