Hello everyone, you can call me Helen or Fish, or anything that happens to suit you. I'm a 17 year old that is hoping to improve enough to be able to apply for a decent art school, hopefully in the field of concept art or something similar. And now kinda leaning towards illustration, so tips on that will be of the utmost help. : DD
PS SCROLL DOWN for recent work :>
I'd love it if any of you can provide tutorials, tips and critique, anything would be great help.
Uhhhm I think thats it for now, I'll try to update every 2 days or the likes, thanks for the comments in advance!

Welcome to CA!
Characterdesigns.com has some awesome photosets to reference from, but it's mostly women. I haven't found a good reference site for men yet. The wiki on this site has a lot of useful links, it's right under the forum header.
Love your style. ♥ Keep posting.
If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
I would appreciate any advice or critiques.
@Ross ;D Ohh you bet, lawls tyty for the post psh slacker my asss you improve loads, and you always draw xPP
@DK Haha thanks a bunch! Yeah, I'm trying to find male sites atm, but no such luck, I'll totally try your suggestions though : >
And some new stuff:
I'll post some more later, still got to search for old people, pregnant, fat, etcetc refs : >
Enjoyed that first post, but much prefer the line work in your second post, lovely figurative work.
My sketchbook, if you really want to see it...
"Picasso is a painter, so am I;... Picasso is Spanish, so am I; Picasso is a communist, neither am I." - Salvador Dali
I really like the doodles that you did in your timetracker Keep going with the figure drawings as well!
My Sketchbook - http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=192648
Yeah your figure work is really beautiful--keep making more!!
I notice your characters tend to have small feet, watch those proportions
(I make small feet too ><)

Your first figure, I loooove the lumpy lines. I don't really know how else to explain it, haha. ( why are you not on aim. D; )
@Yunggiiii L8r bbs, I have to let Colin RO, LOL. Haha, the first figure is kidna ehhhh, I justtold myself I had to drwa stuff, so I just found some pics to draw : )
Okay, I know, extremely late update D: I forgot what I really was doing the whole summer that I didn't update. But! School started again, and I'm kinda worrying alot more about art college choices, as it is my last year in hs and I have to decide soon, so I picked up the pencil and drew a model, my dad, and some classmates that I'll scan later as its at school atm : )
These are all 10 min sketches, nothing that detailed-
Here's my dad:
Hes the only person in my family that'd sit if not pose for me. Everyone else kept complaining about how I make them look too fat or monkey-like .
And this is a model, her features/lines aren't that great/cut off because I was stupid and bought a hugggee artpad on sale just because it was cheap and forgot that it is a pain to scan in so said artpads as well.
I'll try to do more nude studies/perspective, and as usual and critiques and comments will be totally appreciated!
Andandand, any tips for a illustration based portfolio will be great as well, I'm leaning heavily towards going to a art university of that choice : D
Hey nice progress between now and june! keep psoting!
@Jeremy: Thanks a bunch, I will totally do so!
Allright, here are some sketches over about 2 weeks span of 3 minute life drawings to 15 minutes for some of classmates at school from oldest to newest:
15 minutes (Ithink)
2 minutes each pose
5 min for both
and my most recent two figures
(Assignment/from a ref picture instead, 1 hour)
I tried to speedily draw all of the ones in class as accurately as possible, and my shading somewhat changed.
As usual, critiques/comments are very welcome, and any ideas for portfolio pieces would be great too : )
slowww as usual, but here's something I drew around two Saturdays ago using conte : >
Used a live person in this case my friend playing his DSI haha, IDK if I improved that much from the last post. : | But I think I'll put this in my portfolio, given that its suitable quality for that
Again, crits/comments are helpful and much wanted! : >
