    Mary's sketchy thingies

    Hi guys

    I'm Mary, 15, from Romania.
    And I thought I might start a sketchbook here, so I did. Crits are most loved (and begged for, really ). I've been drawing for a year now, and in digital, I use a mouse.

    First post, ahoy! A sketch done in PS. Sorry for the very messy lines

    A character from a series I'm starting, called "Angel Chronicles". Her name is Bianca, and she's an albino. Experimenting with hair motion, fabric draping and butterflies; stylized a tad. This is just a basic sketch-up for what I want...I'll do some intensive research for sturdy references later, since It's quite late here. I thought about a basic palette of mostly white, pink and grey. What do you guys think? (ps. I know the fabric on the support plane is awfully put, but that was just to give me an idea.)

    Sorry for the poor quality in these, but I don't have scanner, so I used my camera D: Some lucky ones were scanned by the girl in the first portrait

    Hey, welcome to CA

    Your digital sketch looks nice, and considering you are using a mouse, its pretty good. You really should invest in a tablet, it's worth the money.
    As for the portrait i think that the eyes are a bit too big. You could look into Loomis book "Drawing the head and hands"for a better understanding of the head. But it might be that the persons eyes really where big .

    all in all: keep drawing, and keep updating

    cheers!

    Hi Mary! Nice sketchbook that you got there. Really nice start. Hey, drawing lines with a mouse can be real hard and tricky, I know.
    You are from Romania? Cool. Then I live close to you, we can meet sometime maybe

    It looks like a good start. I kind of like your fantasy style. I think if you do the studies, you can come a long way. I am a bit more lazy though, but I have seen how others progress when they work hard. You might wait awhile before doing photoshop as well. The basics are the first step, but you are headed in the right direction.

    Thanks a lot *hugs*
    I've started on studies, since I got my hands on Bridgman and Loomis books
    I'm lazy too, but I'm learning to fight that damn procrastination
    I've been doing Photoshop for quite some time now (more or less than a year), especially with colouring, and now I have to catch up in traditional with it

    Kay, new stuffff
    I realised I have a very short attention span when it comes to studies. I get easily distracted. "Oh, to Loomis head pose number...is that a squirrel?! OMG SO CUUUTE!" - that sort of stuff XD. I must fight it TT_TT

    Loomis numbah one. Attention span decreased by 50% while doing it Fast stuff, really. Was going more for pose practice than neatness and accuracy.

    Loomis numbah two. Got distracted again and started doodling stuff on the heads. Air fighter up there, then Holmes, then a bloke who needs coffee, then a dude who reminds me of Fabio, from those cheesy romance novels.

    A character of mine holding a teddy-bear in a should-be-but-got-lazy-to-do-it sandstorm. I wanted to practice drawing bodies that were "cut off" by the edges of the paper. I depend too much on having a head present to measure stuff.

    Something inspired by "Carnival of Rust" from Poets of the Fall, and some thing seen on dA.

    Haha, I can absolutely understand what you say about the attention span. Me too, I get distrascted really easily. But good news: you can train it
    Keep it up!

    I will Because this lack of attention span is getting me everywhere. It's worse when I'm on sugar though, I get all hyper and excited about everything and stuff

    Self portraits are hard, but you got yourself pretty on the dot. All you need now is some shading. : )

    If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
    I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

    Will do Har, har, but I'm still on insecure ground with shading in the traditional way D:
    In PS, I can do them semi-realistic...but in real life, that's a whole 'nother story D: Must catch up, really ^^; .

    Kay, new stuffs.

    Anime-not-so-shiny-desu thingie type of drawing and shading. Because I was in the mood for it (you can put your pitchforks down now, folks ). Just wanted to lay out a basic character palette without much effort.

    Taylor Swift made me do this D:. Fugly colouring with cheap crayons is fugly.

    My try at a static-but-more-dynamic pose Her right arm is a tad too long, now I see. Tried 7 1/2 - 8 heads proportion (must be the Bleach I watched last night)
