    The Sketchbook of Blizzard5291

    Hello, everyone! I've known about CA.org for a while and have kind of been lurking around. I've really been meaning to start one of these, so here goes! I'm open to any criticism, anything to help me improve.

    Here are some more. These are all pretty recent and all also done in paintchat. No references.

    This is a sketch from my sketchbook that I scanned in to color in photoshop. I need the practice. I'll post the WIP of the photoshop version soon.

    Here's a picture that I did in shi-painter oekaki. It's at this Polish oekaki, which is kind of funny because I'm not Polish. It's a really good board, though. As usual, no reference used.

    Hello, CA! I haven't updated this thing is a while, but I've still been drawing. Here are a bunch of things I've done lately. All were done on paintchat, most were done without references, and some were done from pictures from google or from magazines. It is probably obvious which are which. Any comments and advice would be appreciated. I definitely need to use this thing more often.

    Hey there, thanks for dropping by my sketchie. I see improvement, especially the portrait of the man.
    Some of your digital paints are fuzzy, use a harder brush when painting.
    Drop by bumskee's thread for help, it has helped me alot.

    Keep it up ya?

    Hey, so I got a new macbook pro to help get me ready for college in the fall and so now I have a computer that can actually handle Photoshop. WOO! lol So, since I've gotten it, I've been mostly doing things in that program.

    I used a photo reference for the Sara Bareilles picture. The self portraits were done by using webcam shots.
    Here's my sketchbook!

    Oh I forgot to mention that the self portraits probably took around 15-30 minutes each. The Sara Bareilles picture took a few hours.

    It's been a while. Here's a bunch of stuff I've been doing in photoshop. Some are from reference, a lot are from imagination. The orange was from life. Then I ate it. A few of these are unfinished, too.

    The first one was done in August, the last was done last night, and then there's everything in between.

    I always welcome any criticism/tips/comments.
    Here's my sketchbook!

    Here's a page from my sketchbook of faces done from photo references found in various places.

    Sorry for the bad quality of the image. I took the picture with my webcam.

    Here's a painting I did of Ingrid Michaelson from reference. I was experimenting with colors a little bit.

    I love her music.

    Wow, you've done alot, and you're getting better - I think you have a good grasp on greyscales, I'm doing that too, I guess, start experimenting with different brushes, some work looks a bit muddy -

    this image stood out for me: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1266099416


    and I feel this is your strongest - this is nice, : http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1268921544

    I'd love to be able to sketch like that! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled é_é
