Yet another lurker thinking it's high time she made a sketchbook...
I've always claimed to have loved drawing, but I'm almost a quarter of a century old now and still have a looong way to go. I practice nowhere as often as I should. So, inspired by the other sketchbooks here, I shall now start my own. Yay.
I'm sorry for the sucky quality, my scanner's dead, need to get a new one.
Here are some character sketches for now... hope to update regularly

Updates, mostly for the CHOW: (Queens consort) related stuff.
I decided to draw a eunuch consort, sort of inspired by how eunuchs were employed in Imperial palaces in the east as servants for female royalty (Yay wikipedia).
This one would be like the queens long time BFF, heh... Not only does he have a lot of clever advice and suggestions on ruling (or whatever) but tons of hot gossip and beauty/fashion tips etc as well
Been trying to understand lighting and colors again through this piece. There's something strange going on with the straightened leg, probably some weight/balance issues. There's something strange happening compositionally as well. Will try to iron out the kinks over the remaining 48 hours.
The second concept is something I did today. It was a character design for a friends story but it fitted the CHOW theme as well. Again, i can't figure out what's up with the proportions :/ But I think I'll stick with the first idea.
Have a pile of posemaniacs and hand drawings as well, too lazy to upload...
However the digital of the consort looks.... weird . The consort's body looks like a dude's. It is a bit too fat compared the the skinny face + the arms look very muscular. I like the hand though, they match the face well.
Icedearth15876: Thanks for the compliments, I'm flattered
Thank you Fumble! Really appreciate the comments. Pencil? it's ballpoint actually
Aaand the consort basically *is* a dude, haha (just a umm... castrated one... ouch!). But overall, I really do need to work on the proportional weirdness (especially the arms and face), thanks for pointing those things out

Hand gesture studies, posemaniacs and random wonky doodles.
The second last image is something I did after looking at tons of pics of poppy fields and sunsets. Seems to abstract-ish, the colors look weird, the figure looks even weirder. Still needs more work, I get saturated with what I'm working on too fast, need to work on my patience. It's supposedly based on a song 'Scarlet Flower fields' by Vanden Plas, was trying to get the feel of the song down on digital canvas.
The last image is just a photograph I took this morning... decided to crop a portion of it, looked kinda cool.
