Edit: I own several Bridgman books and I have Loomis on my hard drive, please consider this when writing your comment/critique as specific information is far more helpful than pointing to a general source of reference.

Orignal Post: Oh I hope I am doing this right...
Hi! I'm Pearl, a mostly unemployed costume designer, with hope of someday doing more. I'm still very new here, but I'm of the firm belief that there's always more out there to be learned, and one should always seek to improve their craft. I'm mostly informally trained, but I do have some classroom knowledge, I do a wide variety of things you might consider artistic, but my skill is nowhere near professional anything. I've worked on-and-off as a costume designer, draftsperson for an architectural firm, and well... whatever I can find. I'm looking to learn and improve as much as I can! (I know I have a lot of room to grow...)
I love seeing the arts and improvements of each sketchbook so I thought I should go ahead and give it a try. I know I need improvement in several areas, and critique will only help!
Anyway, myself aside (boy do I ever talk too much), here's a few things I've done recently just to kick this off, both sketch and (what I would consider to be... though I could be wrong) more finished work. This is just sort of a random selection, hopefully I'll have more things in progress and sketching and learning related to post soon:
