    Spirall's Book of Beasties

    Hey!
    For those of you who don't know me, my name's Courtney!
    I just turned 16 and I'm currently venturing to improve my limited amount of arting knowledge.
    I've really put off making a sketch-book, since everyone here seems to have such amazing talent and I feel incredibly out of place, but I figured that I'm not learning anything while I'm just sitting here (which is actually soft of a lie, since I learn heaps by just browsing one of the threads here, but still).
    Feel free to paintover, critique or redline, ect any of the things I post here. I'll love you forever.

    Anyway, on to art!

    Okie dokie,
    The legs bend like a horses, if anyone was wondering. I didn't refine the joint properly.

    so this one was something quick I did. The theme was 'slippery'.
    If you're wondering what that scribble down the bottom is, it's just my username on deviantart (nyliirlyccanthanii). Long. I know.

    Sketch for a past COW. We had to create a new dinosaur and zombify it.

    Newest piece. Theme was 'Teeth'. I'm trying out heaps of new things with this one.

    Once again, feedback is really appreciated!
    I'll try to remember to save my sketches more often from now on too.
    Thanks for looking!

    I have a terrible habit of making up anatomy. . .
    I don't know what I did to this one, but I made it look horrible.

    Pretty interesting creatures, Ny . I'll definitely be following your sketchbook!

    The only thing that leaps out at me with most of your pictures is I'm not sure where the light source is and what kind of colour it has. Perhaps try to draw a few pictures with some very strong light source (with or without reference) and try to figure out how that light hits and defines the shapes of your creature.

    Keep it up though !

    Great Creatures designs, the Zombie Dinosaur is my particular favorite.

    The rat skull is also very well drawn, maybe try out some more skull studies.

    Keep up the good work.

    hey spirall for a sixteen year old you are doing pretty damn good in my opinion and im not just saying that i think your creativity is open and your willingness to randomly create new things is definatly a plus point, your off to an impressive start i am twenty and i am only just about to put up my gallery so i know where you are coming from. if you can carry on at the rate you have been i look forward to seeing what you are producing a few years from now!!

    Thanks for the support everyone, I really appreciate you taking the time to look!

    Lhune: Yeah, I've always had trouble trying to establish a decent lightsource. I'll try and work on it though, thanks! < 3

    Fiddzy: The zombi-dino was lots of fun to draw. And I will, thanks!

    Illustrist: Thank-you! It really means a lot to me!

    Elz: Thanks! C:
