    Saska's Sketchbook

    UPDATE


    Five years passed since the last time I was here..shame on me!! XD
    I went on struggling between work and drawing trying to keep improving. I think I did some steps forward but the path is still very long and I feel like I'm walking slowly.
    Anyway, I won't stop ^^
    So you will find the new updates at the end of this thread, starting from January 2015.
    I for sure will mess it up because I'm awful at dealing with forums but be patient :3
    Picture below is one of the best I did in the last couple of years.
    And now let's move on to the sketching!

    --------------------------------------------------


    Hello to everyone!
    My name's Valeria, I'm new and I'm very happy to have found this community!
    I started to love drawing when I was 11 and I'm always looking for critics to improve my skills. I love watercolour and acrylics but later I've discovered also the digital media.
    I've a lot to learn so I hope you'll give me some helpful critics!

    Here there are some of my latest works:

    Thank you for commenting on my SB, and welcome to ConceptArt! Your works are strong. I like the warriors' piece, although it has some things that could be corrected, as the face being too big in proportion to the head, and the legs, which are in a complicated position to draw. His chest could also be a bit wider, to give a strength feeling. Anyway, can't wait to see more work! Keep it up

    Thank you very much Abrodos! I'll correct it when I'll start the final pic.

    These are some sketches I've done some time ago from PoseManiacs site, there you can chose the option to change figure every 60 seconds, so I did these very quickly:

    Thanks for the comment on my work!
    The biggest comment I can give is that you should be more confident with your line. Instead of feathering out a line and going back and forth over it- just put it down, in one motion. Even if it is wrong, because it is confident, it will look better.
    Your first painting is nice though. Lovely eyes!
    Keep on truckin'! Or drawing, it's up to you.... haha

    You're welcome Fraser!
    Thanks for the advice, I'll try!

    This is one of the last pictures I'm working on... I've some problems with the background, because I don't know how to give the sense of distance and how to draw the light...
    It's the first time I try to do such a BG, so I'm a bit confused!

    Hi! Today, after my computer crushed ,I've done some quick sketches

    The first is a studio of volumes , done in ArtRage from a photo ref.
    The others are quick sketches done from mind. In the last one I've tryed to use less lines, but it's difficult to leave an old habit!

    hello
    thank you for your visit on my SB !!!
    nice SB start !
    for your sketches post #3 for example , I think you shouldn't draw so much the contour lines , may draw more "in" the body, maybe draw more with light and shadow to create a volum or maybe just try to don't redraw the same line until it make an hard black line with many "hair" ^^' (that is my teachers who said that XD ) let you pencil go (if I can say that ^^' sorry for my english ! hope you understand what I wrote XD !!!! )
    Sorry, I'm bad in critics !!! (and english :o !) XD

    Some tips for backgrounds:
    -colder colours
    -less details
    -smaller value difference

    If you keep these in mind for your bgs they will work as backgrounds.

    Cheers

    really like your faces, and looks like your studies are going well, so keep them up.
    even on the first side of this sketchbook i think i see a step forward. just go further
    by the way, sometimes it helpes to go enrage with your pencil, try it out.
