    I hate you Natalie Portman - sketchpoops

    I'll eventually think of a better name for this...

    Hello all! New here. Name's Angela I have lurked and drooled over Conceptart.org for literally years without getting up the courage to post (pathetic, yes...) until I made myself go to Reverie and got kicked in the bum hard enough to make me post something finally. So here is a start!

    *EDIT* had to shuffle some things around so I could be able to change the thumbnail image for the sketchbook. Images originally posted here are now attached in the second post.

    *MOVED POST* A few stages of a recent expression study of a girl using an excellent photo book as reference, two old figure studies from photo reference, a super old sketch I did for a CHOW that I admittedly never had the guts to finish or submit (CHOW99 - Herald of the queen), some sketches from life that I did at Reverie, and current CHOW that I am actually working on and hoping not to pansy out (exciting!)

    Great to finally get on here! I look forward to getting to know many of you much better, I am a big fan of a lot of people's work that I see round and about these parts



    Well I finally finished a CHOW! Which is really exciting Not really pleased with the results at the moment, but a small triumph in and of itself! I was much happier with the ridiculousness of the facial expression before I started rendering it. I made a lot of silly amateur mistakes and got frustrated with myself for being so rusty, but all in all it was good practice and that's what it's all about, right? And since I forgot to say it last time, comments and critiques are WOOONNNNDERFUL and are always very appreciated, as I am on a quest for improvement

    A few more. Going to be a lot of studies and from reference for quite some time since I have a loooooong way to go.

    Sketches using a beautiful Superman Comic as reference - original images and copyrights belong to DC. Last one is of a chick who didn't have hair but I tried my hand at inventing some... meh.....

    Thanks for the critique in the chow section , i see your stuff is coming along nice , following a more stylized representation of the body. You shouldef used in your chow the same technique of work you use in your drawings , they look good. I noticed that the smile ,on the woman's face from chow illustration , is not quit a sign of happiness and its unnatural , you should study some face muscles under different expressions , this is one of the hardest things to draw , a good smile ... take care.

    Giorge - Thanks for looking! And yeah, I'll definitely be doing more expression studies. It's something I'm very interested in and hoping to get a lot better at.

    Here is a quick sketch I did from imagination tonight, actually in a friend's sketchbook... Been looking at a lot of Mucha and Arthur Rackham lately (Sorry for the poor image quality, all I had on hand was a webcam to take a picture of it)

    So I started this digital portrait painting of Mandy Moore from photo reference FOREVER ago and never finished it. Well tonight I found it! And decided what the heck, might as well get this thing done (if you go find the reference, yeah i know the hair's all screwed up...). Also a 3 hour study of a Craig Mullins piece that is from about the same time long ago that I finally touched up my mistakes on a bit tonight (let me know if it is not okay to post studies of other artists' stuff...). MAN I need to get back in practice. Workin' on it *Must do more digital painting again*

    sandeepbarot - Hey, thank you! Didn't mean to leave you out, though I did comment on your sketchies
    bharat - Thanks for stopping by
    Sidharth Chaturvedi - Thank you! And I saw from your sketchbook you went to Reverie, I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you.

    A "speedpaint" I did tonight. Though it wasn't as speedy as I'd hoped... wanted to make it in an hour and it took three. But it is my first in months so it's the beginning of getting into good habits I hope

    Painted from photo reference by an awesome food photographer named Michael Ray from his website... I hope that's okay... I don't really know how to go about these things yet.... Also, definitely looking for critique

    when I took a look at your first I post, I thought wow someone's pencil work that looks similar to mine only with neater shading and lines. Then I saw your digial paintings studies and I thought they were photographs. Superb Keep it flowing.
