    Fishpail Sketchbook (Updated 11/23) 1 Pic!

    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!

    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.

    Enjoyed that first post, but much prefer the line work in your second post, lovely figurative work.

    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 ><)

    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

    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 : )
