I'm Marisa - born 19.03.1984 and currently in my 2nd year of Architecture studies at the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland.
Anyway, here's my sketchbook - all crits, comments and feedback are very much appreciated (and usually returned).
**NOTE : New stuff begins on the second page - the first page is littered with stuff that I produced between 1 and 7 years ago, just to give you an idea of where I've come from and all that BS

very nice i like your oils very much
post some more
Thanks 'ej I wish I had the time and space to do more oils...
Here's a bunch 'o coloured pencil portraits..
A small WIP update...
The first is a (crap photo of my) cubist representation of yoga movement/poses (for school) that we had to produce in the studio over the course of a day. (as a means to analyze the movement, for research into my eventual building proposal for a yoga centre..)
Anyway... I was really inspired by Mentler's Sketchbook , in particular his abstract paintings... and decided it would be an interesting excersize to try and convert my cubist line drawing into the organic forms/abstracted language that Mentler has mastered... definitely a learning experience - but fun so far
Any feedback would be lovely.
I like your work most of all your Mentler study and thanks again for the input! I should get that piece done soon. Hope you'll have time to post more work.

Nice carefully executed work. That last on turned out well
ps: welcome to the forums!
And this is the design done... thinking of adding in some colouring, but definitely not tonight... my arm is sore from all the hatching... hah
Great stuff. I like the Caro.jpg portrait, the one with the hue shifts in the face. But =) her neck is to thin.

Wow, fantastic stuff! =)
I'm mesmerized by your oils in post #2, they're great! Especially that last one, "withered with shame"; gorgeous!
That elephant has a nice flow in it as well
Regarding that last kickass design, I would like to see it - if possible - with a little bit darker lines and areas, to sort of increase the contrast a bit
It looks great, but comes across as a little bit bland to my eye.
Thanks for sharing!
I'll keep an eye out for this!

cool selfportraits u got there
i have to do those as well for school, its hard to draw yourself
KEEP IT UP!
Some older puppy portraits... Boring, I know, but I miss mine!
**edited to say thanks to everyone for the comments..
Paranoid - Good eye - I totally agree with you. I think I do have a bit of a subconscious habit to give everyone long, thin necks.... I'll keep an eye on it for the future. Thanks
Revise - Thank you for the kind words! And yes, I think I'll develop the design further and add some more contrast to help give more of a visual hierarchy to the image... I think I'll do that now, actually. Cheers!
Fighting Seraph - No worries - thanks for stopping by!
'ej - Yeah... strange that the one face that you're most familiar with is sometimes the hardest to draw... something about being one's own worst critic, I think -but it gets easier over time.

I really adore your yoga piece - it's extremely elegant, and I love how you've arranged the bodies in the initial sketch into a lily-like form.
I think your work is particularly strong when it's combining mediums and elements - like your Elephae and Withered oil paintings (the hair in that one! gorgeous!), the really graphic, stylized elements are very interesting with the more modelled areas and the traditional media you're using. That first oil painting in post 2 is certainly looking gorgeous though - I hope you'll post the finished product! Keep it up ^_^
Sweet elephant, and that yoga piece is awesome.
I really like your WIP with the om symbol. Can't wait to see it. Thanks for the post on my SB btw!
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
you really have lot of Art regular basis ,i study Art seven years,but in china,art Education not like yours, how to say ...more Unity ,means you just In full accordance with the teacher said to painting . or you can not go to the University.
that make me no Dare to draw what i want to draw. not free mind like your guys,but i will Efforts to correct .
your works so Decorative feelling,and all on paper ,yes ?
seems you like dog very much ..lol
and i like that Snail in boy's eye. that make me feel so Reality and Comfort，and i don't know why... and dogs..i think you need put more Environmental color on it ,Although this dark Color was...Rigorous , but i still think need some Contrast.
your other Abstract works all good ..i think you can paint more like that snail eye thing...really Impact！
and thank you give me so many Comments~！
you keep up too!!wait to see your new works !
and..i wish you can understand me...my english too bad~~
Christoffer - Thanks for the kind words, man! Will post a pic of that piece in its finished state as soon as I get a good one. It's hanging in my aunts house in germany... luckily I'll be visiting again soon
Oksenbrutus - Thank you!
Geckochan - Aww... thank you so much for your kind wnd thoughtful words... Now I'm inspired to do new graphic/modeled images
JG - Haha, Thanks! And thanks for stopping by!
WickedEdges - Thanks! An update for the design is in the works
For now... here's some older illustrations... If you liked Elephae, you may like my Zettys and Zebbys too
hey there! your Illustrations are very well done, ( I dont get the medium you used…watercolor?…Im a greenhorn…)
I like the zebbys (the left ones) very much…poses are amazingly well done…ref?
looking forward for more updates!
J.R. - Thanks for stopping by! I understand what you're saying (by the way, I commend you, and anyone else, who's first language is not english - who come here to learn art and english at the same time... really cool). Some architecture students from Bejing just transferred into my program here, and they have told me the same thing.... they are so used to doing only, and exactly, as their professor says that it's taking them a while to get used to having more creative license.... I think they like the change, though
Hah... I'm an animal lover in general - but yes, I do have a certain bias towards the dogs in my life I agree that I could have added some colours of the surroundings in a lot of my older works (some of those are years old)... hopefully I'm a little older and wiser now, though Thank you for all the thoughtful comments!
Bigfoot - Thanks for stoppin by They're all coloured pencil... I think pretty much all my stuff is, with the occasional oil thrown in... BUT this next one is all photoshop... lovin' my new tablet
Coloured... working or no?
