I'm 22 and I'm from Saudi Arabia... I recently graduated from an Interior Design Engineering course. I love drawing characters and I want to get better with my work , I want to be the best saudi artist ever ... I hope I'll be able to share my work often here with you all and get good advice and help.
I've always wanted to make a sketchbook here but was too afraid to. I know my art needs so much work....I think it is time for me to improve and I was going through the other sketchbooks and saw how big of a change there was from when they first started out. I hope that I will be able to see such an improvement in my work.
The main areas I want to improve with are: Environments- Colors- Shadows and Painting
I'm posting some of my very old work right before I stopped drawing seriously, then I'll start with the newer things

You have a nice start to your sketchbook here Make sure you do all your basics, Anatomy, Gestures and such. I think your rendering on the girls is quite lovely, Keep Practicing and keep up the good work!
Nice start.You have to keep up studying and expanding your artistic horizons.Dont let anything stop you now.Its what you wanna do after all, right? Nice goal and i hope it can motivate you for a long time
see ya and thnx for stopping by my sketchbook
kingkostas: Thank you! It's the nice people who comment that help motivate me as well, so thanks for stopping by. AlexTooth:Thanks , ya I'm going to try to focus on still life and environments for the time being and to keep working on posemaniac and such Karein:Thank you for the encouragement, it's so helpful
I finally scanned some of my moleskine notebook , I really should scan more but I got tired... tomorrow I'll get some more done and have some more practice pieces as well.
-Includes some characters from Saudi culture and some sketches of designs and fun stuff
Yeah, you're right, I struggle still with using different colors in a piece convincingly , I know most of the rules but I fail when I try to apply them :< Thats part of the reason why I'm here , for my next drawing to the sketchbook I'll try broad range color palettes..
Nice start to an SB! Keep it up and I believe you can be the best female Saudi artist ever! Just keep on drawing and learning and improving!
My favorites right now are images 4 and 5 in your last update.
Also, keep on doing those anatomy studies, try to do them daily. I try to do 2 pages a day myself ( i don't always succeed though...)
I can't comment on your digital work since I see that you are better at it than me..
Looking forward to seeing more from you!
I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!
