    Mera's Sketchbook -- Digital and traditional hodgepodge!

    I wanted to start another sketchbook, and make this one more... up to date. Also, less cluttered. So let's start simply, shall we!
    Thoughts, critique or anything loved!

    Just a couple of photoshop bits I did, and then a husky and ringtailed cat character who keep appearing in my sketchbook.

    ^ That is all nice but there are sooo many great pieces in your other book as well. Hope it doesn't go MIA. All the best.

    Congrats on your new SB Meralynn. I take that this Assassin is some kind of a personal project.
    It's always nice to see a collection of images all linked together. I can almost imagine the world and its story within. Good luck with you newly formed SB.
    I shall see more!

    Hey,

    beautiful work, i like the colors and how you are using your backgrounds.
    Many of your pieces have a watercolor feeling, I like that

    Hope to see more.

    Great first post! I really like the first image except that the perspective is very confusing. It looks like the section below water belongs in a separate image altogether, because our viewpoint is so high (based on how we're viewing the figure and the lillypads) that we shouldn't be anywhere near the water. In order for the cross-section of the water to make sense, the POW would need to be rather low and therefore viewing the figure from below.

    That's a nice re-start.
    The first picture might work better if there was a single center of attention (I suppose it would be the druid with the light beings. All the other animals help in giving the image that fantasy feeling, but, having each of them a different attitude, it's like a lot of things are happening in there, so the important one (the druid) becomes less important.

    Anyway, you've got some really nice art! Keep posting!

    I don't have much, but I do have a few sketches here and there from work. I just have a few small breaks a day, so I try and get some drawing in (when I don't wind up talking to tourists)
    I need to practice my human anatomy much much more! I should probably do life drawings on my ten minute breaks instead of just aimlessly doodling.

    jigje - Well, the pieces will remain there, I just wanted to start a fresh one here so it feels less cluttered!!

    davekang - Thanks!! Yeah, it's a personal project that's been a long time in the making. I'm finally putting those ideas down onto paper!

    dierat - yeah, I agree with the perspective thing. I was inspired by those old biology illustrations where they'd present all the layers of the ecosystem all at once, although I wasn't fully sure how to approach it! I'll probably do more studying if I do another piece like this. Thanks!

    abrodos - Thanks for the critique. I went a little crazy with all the wildlife in this piecel I'm still learning how to add in detail without it being overpowering.


    Thanks again everyone for any comments or critique!!

    Hey Meralynn! Thank you for dropping by at my sketchbook. Any CC, especially from an artist of your level is greatly appreciated, and I hope you`ll give me an advice or two more. As for your sketchbook - well, no use for me to comment on anything, right?

    Pxelslayer Naw, there are never any worthless comments. Everything is worthwhile.

    --

    Now, here are a sketches I did today at the airport while waiting for a friend. The dragon one is an in process commission. Just getting some base colors down.

    Some studies from life, a spur of the moment fanart, and then a rabbit griffon.

    oops, I forgot to add this.

    I also added another piece of mine that I did for class awhile back.

    Sup Meralyn, great stuff. I esp. like the eagle-doggy and the last drawing. There seems to be a perspective mistake on the picture frame though, keep distracting me.

    More pls!
