Okay, enough with the lurking already, time for me to start a sketchbook thread!
Hi, I'm Rynnay. I'm from DeviantArt, but I want to get a little more serious with my pursuit of art as a career, and I've been told this is the right place to go. By the looks of things, I've been told correctly! Enclosed for now is an older compilation of the first bundle of pages (the worthwhile ones anyway) of my sketchbook from this past January-May. Apologies for any notes or comic page thumbnails... those are classwork related.
So tell me your thoughts if you like. I'm itching to improve my style, and I hope being here will help motivate me over the summer in preparation for my senior year of my BFA. I want to get more realistic with my style, but I don't want to lose the emotive quality of my more cartoonish work. I'm not sure where to begin.

I'm familiar with Loomis as far as his figure drawing lessons go, but perhaps haven't looked at enough of his stuff after that. Thanks for the tip
Good start Would like to see how you take your sketchs further. I have not experience with cartoonish styles so cant really give any crit. Keep it up

Here are a few older studies I did in Photoshop a few months ago. Been busy at home, so no time to do anything new. The hooded centaur creature was a study for a creature design in a story I'm working on. The portrait was a paintover from Alchemy. And the ogre... thing... well I'm still not sure what prompted that, but I named him Tiny.
Wow, I really like your work as well, especially all the images in your first post. The coloring on your Centaur and the one after the ogre is phenomenal!
Wow, you did join! Welcome!
Fantastic! I'm stalkin'
I'll let others advise you now as you are way ahead of me in skill. Maybe I do faces with a bit more realistic detail, but you definitely have more knowledge and visual vocabulary. Not to mention imagination.
Leonor- don't be so sure, I'm outmatched here by the vast majority! You sound like you've seen me somewhere else before. Do I know you from DA? Don't presume I remember anything, my memory is crap, lol!
In the meantime, here's some things I've done over the past couple weeks. I need to pick up the pace. More sketching!
I watch you on dA, but I rarely comment. I did reply to your journal about wanting to be a concept artist and I suggested that you should come here.
I like your sketches. Where are you studying those poses from?
Ahh right! Now I remember I had been signed up here for quite some time (it says June '08... geez has it been that long already??) but kept forgetting to come back and get started posting stuff til you and a couple others said something.
The poses in the last post are from links I found in nude reference thread in Refs and Inspirations. Others are from photos probably around DA.
Your dino punches are excellent. Care to show more of them and can you show a more recently finished work.
Haven't had time to finish much of anything recently since school let out for the summer a few weeks ago. Been preoccupied with work and other matters. All I have that I've finished within the last week is a portrait of RedXIII from FF7 as a human. Just did it for fun both as a lighting practice and a character study.
Also have some more gesture drawings from yesterday and today. Check out my home site for other finished work. I don't want to clog CA's server with work that's not recent.
