    Arrrg, I need to draw more.

    This is pathetic, really. :/ Anywho.


    I figure you've read this jargon a billion times over, and I'm sorry for the fact I'll be restating it!


    I'm just really hoping to improve. I figure that this can only be achieved through insanely hard work, and lots and lots of art. Thank god I now have a tablet, though, yeh? So it's not too bad.

    Shitty self portrait

    Based off a picture, but it's really horrible. It looks.. Vaugley like me? Lips look like a wrong shade... Probably because I theived the colors from the photo directly, but nothing else. Also, the hair bothers me, but I decided to just stop working on it after a while.

    Heya Iiridellia, thanks for dropping by my sketchbook (Sorry for the bad picture quality/fuzziness )

    No worries about the quality of your art, it will improve in time. Just make sure you enjoy the process and NOT that end result, as that will royally screw you up, as it did for me. Because I was so focused on the end result in the beginning, I had a really bad time, because, since I was just a beginner, all my stuff was like crap.

    Anyway, if you want an ego boost, go look at the first several pages of my sketchbook - awful stuff there
    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    This is a nice start ^_^ watch your perspective, the placement of the back horn on the deer looks a little too far forward in comparison with the rest of the head. Could just be me though ^_^

    hey there!
    Thanks to drop by my SB =)
    it's great to see you're with the right attitud and willing to work hard! it's really gonna pay off =)
    I sugges watchin mre carefully your proportions, for what I've learned the past months, I' say stick with drawing and structure first, it'd make everything much easier in the future, I nglected that before and now I'm aving some serious troubles to get that fixed >.<
    So yeah keep up your work and keep doing studies!

    Hey Iiridellia, looks like you've made a great start here!

    If you're pretty new to the whole digital art thing and with using a tablet, I would definitely suggest that you start with the foundations first rather than jumping straight into full colour portraits. I think you'll find that having a good knowledge of how to achieve accurate tonal values on various forms, made of different materials and under different lighting conditions, will greatly boost your confidence when trying to draw anything from imagination.

    There is an excellent thread here that you should take a peek at -----> http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=53517

    As Rabbi Satan said, focus on the process and take note when you see how much you have improved. Don't let any bad feelings about your work prevent you from enjoying your art to the point where you want to quit. Trust me, I know what that's like.

    Starting a sketchbook here was a great step towards improving, I'm excited to see how your art develops into the future. Practice, practice, practice!

    @Rabbi - I tried to work a bit more on enjoying the process, and ended up indeed having some fun... atleast while thinking of things for my girl to say, yeh?

    @ZhouPeng - I'll keep working, thank you for your wishes!

    @Longxiang - Hah, I shall do those artsings.

    @KittyPoker - I'll fix that ASAP, I noticed it now that you pointed it out.

    @Dark Razvan - Well, I went back and worked a bit more on the basics, so to speak...

    @Jaro - I'll definitely be looking through that thread. I glanced earlier, and was entranced. Looks like it promises to be an interesting read. :3

    Nice sense of humour in the lineup, Iiridellia Don't feel discouraged posting artwork. However always try to improve little by little and learn something from each picture you draw so that you move forward not backwards. Definitely work on the basic structure which will help you progress to the next step.
