    just the sketchbook of a 14 year old girl...

    Hey everyone, i'm new to this, and have recently been using DeviantArt.

    Art is my passion, and although i'm still young I hope to make a living out of it.

    I've heard the people here are very friendly and helpful, so i'd appreciate some helpful critique and advice.

    Thanks so much

    Selina xx

    (P.S: I had another couple drawings, but after persisting for hours .. I couldn't get the file size down low enough..only to about 1.4MB..the colours are so vibrant..I think thats the problem, but I don't know what to do to make it smaller. I've been using "save for web" on photoshop, and lowering it as far as (I can see) possible. Any help on this matter would be appreciated!)

    Hello! I was just going to add that yes, you should post some smaller pictures

    Resize them and repost them, you will get some legitimate replies then.

    From what I can see though, great detail on the eyes, specifically the reflection near the pupil. Those flowers are fantastic as well, you have a real knack for color, and their ability to create that natural depth/value. I am a noob at drawing thus far in my life, so I don't feel comfortable giving you any constructive criticism. Only words of encouragement!

    Cheers!

    Ha , well what I can fit on my monitor looks very good so far!

    Do you have any software to make them smaller? If you don't, there are image resizer alternatives online, such as http://www.shrinkpictures.com/

    Not used that site myself, but I know people have found it easy to use.

    PS: to resize in Photoshop, go up to "Image" on the menu bar or hit CTRL+ALT+I to bring up the image resize option.

    Change the size-value of the image from pixels to inches, and just make it like 5in or 4in assuming your resolution is relatively higher (150-300 range).

    That should get the image smaller.

    On the post you want to edit, in the bottom right corner of the post should be an edit button. Then go to the attachment manager and delete the current images / upload the new ones

    Edit: Btw you will probably have to click 'Go Advanced' after clicking edit.

    Well it is clear to say that your colouring of that flower / plant is beautiful! It appears to be really nicely rendered.

    What are your human studies like though? I think I'd like to see some people

    What area of art interests you most? What do you want to practice / get skilled at in particular? Show us some more work
