    ~ Nuthien is tired of being a webdesigner

    Hi, I'm 21 and I'm almost graduating on Graphic Design. I work at a webdesign company but this definately don't fulfill my dreams. So I'm struggling to get out of it and hopefully become an illustrator.

    I don't have a scanner, just a camera to take pictures of my sketchbooks. And my boyfriend just got me a Wacom, so I'm not very used to it yet... anyways, here's my first dump. Critiques more than welcome, of course

    The pictures suck,sorry. I tried to get them more sharp with photoshop.

    These first two are old works, in traditional media (graphite and pastels)

    The last three are quick pose/anatomy digital studies of Frazetta's work.

    Back again. It has been a while, I went on vacations.

    I'm trying t o get used to my wacom tablet. I usually do some normal drawing exercises then jump to train digital painting. My tablet is small, so that makes things a little bit harder. However, I can't afford another now and I am very thankful for having this...

    Painting from a picture. The 1st is my first trying. The 2nd I made some improvements to make it look smoother and finished the tail... proportions are off, but I learned a lot about painting

    Thisone is also from a photo. I layed down some tones and then played a little with smudge brushes.

    I'm using Blur's Good Brushes in most of these works from now

    Sorry, I can't help, I just like to write that much. I'm not just trying to improve my art, but also my English

    Wow.

    Is good to know that there is someone following the same path as I´m doing.

    I used to work as a webdesigner too but I got tired of it. So I quit my job just to draw. I´m not working as a illustrator yet. But sure I´m learning a lot.

    Good luck on your journey.

    By the way... the bird is great.

    Draw more. Post more.

    Hi nuthien, let me tell you that i was in a similar situation as you are, i´m 25 and i graduated in graphic design, i worked here and there as a graphic designer but i just didn´t feel happy, my last job was at a bridal magazine, i worked there for a year until i decided to risk it all and went illustrating full time, its tough at the beggining but little by little im progressing.
    Seeing your sketchbook i can tell you have a huge talent, i´m really impressed, that litle cardinal is great, you should try workins as a web designer part-time and the rest of the day draw like there is no tomorrow. i´ll drop by regulary to see your job .

    Olá! Tudo bom?
    Dificil encontrar outro brasileiro por aqui. Tudo bom contigo?
    Gostei muito da pintura do passaro vermelho. Bons estudos do Frazetta tb.
    Ja mostrou logo que está num bom caminho.

    Engraçado, eu vou começar agora mesmo um curso de design grafico aqui no Rio, mas eu quero mesmo é ser ilustrador tb.
    Tudo de bom aí!
