Thread: Saska's Sketchbook
January 3rd, 2010 #1
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

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!

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 !!!! )

Hey thanks for looking at my sketchbook! your studies are looking pretty good, and the paintings look nice too. seems like a nice start to your sketchbook. If you're still doing posemaniacs, I thought I'd suggest dropping the time to 30 seconds or maybe 15 to do some quick gestures. with less time you have to use your lines to describe the pose in a whole without focusing on detail. It's good practice, I think that would help your lines.

As said in the top page update, five years since my last update... I hope to be more present from now on!
I went on with drawing and painting in these years, and now I feel like I can't go further all by myself, I need again the advice and support of an artist's community
So here are some of the sketches and drawings from this last year, I tried to study especially the figure with the aid of Loomis books (love them!!)
Now let's see if I'm still able to upload pictures XD
Ok so on my laptop all the photos are straight I have no idea what happened here

Some digital sketches. I'm trying to do first a very loose sketch in order to draw more fluidly and to lay down ideas, then I pick up the lines I want to keep and I clean the sketch. I found out that when drawing in digital it helps me to be more natural with poses and with proportions.
