    A Hop, Skip, and a Jump in the Right Direction - Vardia's Sketchbook

    Hello, everyone! My names Vardia and I'm currently a junior in high school. I just started my first real art class that's painting with oils, but other than that, I've never had any actual art classes. I want to one day have an actual career in the art field, and hopefully this thread will help me get better so I'll have enough know-how and skill to.

    So let's get this thread rolling (Unfortunately my scanner is in storage right now so I'll have to make due with my camera for taking snaps of my sketchbook) :

    Vardia if you use the Go Advanced feature you can use the attachment manager to upload your pics directly to your sketchbook

    Took me an hour and a half just to do one sketchbook page. I should really find a way to shave down on time with these.

    And here is a delicious (?) apple before I go off to my oil painting class. One thing I don't like about this is that I just can't seem to blend colors together at all in photoshop, and I refuse to use the blur tool to do this. I've tried lowering the opacity and the flow but it just doesn't seem to work.

    Here's a banana that I made. Been busy lately since I only have 15 days left to finish all of my classes plus their finals. As you can see, still having trouble blending up the colors.

    Here's a few 30 second pose maniacs. Anyone have any suggestions how I could make these a bit faster and still look remotely human?

    and here's two more pose maniacs I did. Still trying to find a fast way to do it while still making it look somewhat humanoid. Comments or critique would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry it's been a while! We've been busy packing up getting ready to move back the USA along with preparing for a cruise we're taking next week.

    The good news is I was finally able to take home my landscape (and first traditional painting) from my oil painting class, so I figured I'd post it up here. Even though the webcam messed it up a bit!

    Finally back from the vacation cruise my family took! It was fun and I got to see all kinds of different cities. The only bad thing was that I had to buy a new sketchbook halfway through the cruise since my other one got lost when I left it by accident in the ship lobby.
