    Katanasoul- Really needs help with colour...

    Hi, my name is Sarah or Katanasoul on most art related communitys. I started with manga themed art in 2003 and did that for quite a while.
    But eventually I started realizing that I wanted to become better at drawing and I wanted to learn how to paint. To me that meant that I had to practice more.
    My best friend avisnocturna told me that conceptart´s a great community, so I thought I could give it a try, even though I´m still afraid I might not be good enough to be here.
    I´m trying to become more professional over time and work a lot to get there. I appreciate if you help me becoming better by giving advice or just stopping by and having a look at what I´m doing.

    So today, I´m gonna start posting!

    This is something I really wish someone could give me advice. It is my very first try to do something digitaly, so I got Artweaver and started. It did not turn out the way I wanted it to. I did not get along with anything...

    These are some birds I did a while ago. As all the other pieces in this posting, this is done in penicl only. I love birds.

    Thank you very much for you repliies!
    I´m glad you like it, and I will go on posting as much as I can.

    Yesterday, I downloaded the trial version of photoshop CS2. If I get along with it, I guess I´m going to buy it after my birthday in june. I took a tutorial by Linda Bergkvist and tried to draw an eye in photoshop. I think it could have turned out worse, but still I did not get everything the way I wanted to. Didn´t understand that part about texture and how to do that, so I´d be glad if somebody told me.

    And again, two pencil sketches done in a train and at university. Each one took about ten minutes. Don´t ask me why I had mustard with me...

    Was that eye your first try at photoshop? It's amazingly amazing, i like it even
    more than the one on the tutorial haha... but it's nowhere as amazing as those
    birds, I can't believe the quality of the shading you've put on them.
    your sketchbook looks very promising! can't wait to see more.

    Thank you very much for your comments, you´re really motivating me to work harder!

    @flowereater: No, it actually is my second try. My first is the face in the first post of this sketchbook. But I am very happy that you like it, even though I guess the original is much better than mine.

    So, here I am with new studys!

    At the weekend, I visited my grandparents. They have lots of skulls of forest animals at their walls, and I took one and sketched it.

    Anyway, I wasn´t able to remove the birds from the wall, so I sat there upside down on the sofa with my head on the table and sketched one of the birds above me. That was fun, but my head hurt afterwards...
    The dice is from a role play game afternoon, sketched it very quickly. Looks horrible when I look at it now...

    Yesterday, I bought "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards. My best friend recomended it to me and I thought it may help me, too.

    So today, I did the first exercise. It was about drawing your hand by viewing, a self portrait with a mirror and a face from imagination. So, this is what came out. Not sure if this is good at all, but I´m not doing that to be good but to improve.
    It took me about half an hour to do the portrait (that does not really look like me...), ten minutes for the hand and five to ten for the face.

    Very ncie works, and about what did Linda mean, it's about making thing look less digital to give it texture (in this example skin looks, texture can be in most cases anything that disturbs the monotony, hope you get what i'm trying to say) cheers!

    Best wishes, Ice

    Hi,

    the Skulls are great, espacially the rendering. The first pic could be a litte more smooth, but it looks good anyway.

    The last two faces seem to be a little bit meaningless.

    hi

    very good start. Its seems you're very good at values and rendering (wich seems true for many girls i know, perhaps it's related to sensivity)

    your stills are very good. Perhaps you should practice more on life drawing. (draw many portraits and live things) do many lines from life.(if you're alone draw selfportraits:one each day or each week)

    The betty edwards books is good, take a look at andrew loomis's books
    they are simply the best
    http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/

    there a good thing you can pick from conceptart: looking at the sketchbook of someone who is already taking drawing classes and do the same exercices like dorian

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?p=716187


    keep it
