This will be my vectorful sketchbook! With pencil sketches too!
I finally joined CA and DSG a week or so ago and while I'm drawing stuff in there (stuff that's better than I've ever done!) I don't get critiques much... Besides, I need to do more!
I do feel a bit like the odd one out because I work best in Illustrator... and my ideas are kinda funny even when the subject is serious... however! I've spent a lot of time trying to find my own style and while it's still evolving, it's definitely different! :)
And... I want to do kiddy things! Kid's books or something :)
Please, please, please critique!

I'm back from California! But... I have no internet D: and the scanner busted the colors. And I'm posting this from a Starbucks ._.
Oh well I haven't done colored pencil... since... two years ago 'cos i had to. Before that, I was really tiny and it was the medium of choice, along with crayons... but it's what I had! These are both book prospects so prepare for story times~
There was a lady, an artist we met in California, who was legally blind but still kept going with her art! She told us a story about this bluebird she'd developed a relationship with: It would come in and perch on her shoulder and eat from her hand... but after ten years she decided to move to another house... so she told the bird her new address if she wanted to come find her! 6 months later, she did! So she comes every day and rings the chimes to tell her she's there. It's true! It's adorable. I want to make a book out of it. Hence the drawing. Attachment 432677
My mom keeps showing this book around I made in 4th grade... I guess it's got charm since y'know, I was all young and stuff, and I illustrated it all... POORLY. Geh. Well I decided I'd remake it one day. It was about a boy who lost his teddy bear. And had a dog Attachment 432678
For a portfolio website. Funny animals! Hee... Narhwal... I love the illustration bit (and the quote things!) but the overall layout is kiiiiiilling me. Hopefully someone can help out?
Also, somehow I don't have the picture for the links page where monli's (orange elephant) in his space helmet and rocket pack... I guess these weren't the finals... Well, if I find it I'll replace it! And I see the pelican typo

"Rogue Healy-bot! He's good for group healing, 'cos he's so big! He went a little overboard... and short-circuited... so now he's roaming through parks vacuuming up everything in sight.
Uh. He sucks things up and then they pop out his head healed."
See, it almost works out but it seems like I'd have to make an entire comic strip about it or something... Well, I don't know, really. Maybe it's good for kids books after all 'cos you're explaining it in the story! Maybe?

Previous schoolwork, sketches I want to remember to vector, and my jaw x-ray! I've had a whole lot of surgeries since 2005 so now I have a titanium plate, 2 metal teeth and a bunch of cool-lookin' scars! The x-ray is cool too, and I'd like to figure out a way to draw something incorporating it... but I don't know what! Suggestions would be lovely
And how do you make thumbnails actually thumbnail-esque? Just resize on my own?
