    My Scribbles~~~Charcoal and Illustration!@


    Hi everyone !


    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!

    Good start - I am glad you made the sketchbook; it can be an intimidating forum because it's so busy and so much amazing work.

    But it's good making a sketchbook!

    I love your digital portraits!

    As Karein says - practice all the basics, I can see you have already started.

    Learn lots and lots about lighting and how it affects objects, surface, colours etc!

    You will be good in no time, keep posting

    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

    Good stuff! Your digital paintings show a lot of promise - I'd try broadening your pallette a little? At the moment each peice seems to have a nice, but quite limited range of colours.

    Right

    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..

    tonal and color stuff

    I finally got a hold of Loomis books so hopefully my color mixing and compositons and figures should improve .

    Just going to dump the stuff i did recently...please dont be scared to critique me harshly ...I need it...and I need encouragement too if you feel I deserve it...


    Thanks.

    Hello Amianna!
    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!
