    Draw draw draw -er

    Ok so I admit I've been a member for a long time. The thing is, as awesome as this site is (and probably because of its very awesomeness) it's klnd of intimidating to post stuff. So I figured I'd come back later.
    So here I am years later and feeling incredibly stupid. Because all the time I wasted goggling at other peoples awesomeness I should have been practicing hard and getting feedback from all of you guys.
    But I guess better late than never, right? right?

    Alright then, let me give this sketchbook thing a try.

    I suppose no matter what I'm drawing, there will always be some sort of question in my mind about it. A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.

    So here's some stuff from my little sketchbook.

    I tend to doodle more than actually seriously draw. I'm trying to fix that.

    I'm actually pretty shy about drawing in public. . .

    HI LAL!

    Well I was trying to draw this dude but darn it I can't get his face right.
    Obviously I need to practice my proportions. Also, I rarely work with pencils so I guess I need to practice with those too. .

    Attachment 937659

    Some random doodle in my notebook.

    Attachment 937660

    And an attempt at a cartoony version of my grandma.
    I showed this to my mother and she thought it was horrible. In a "Oh my gawd how could you?!" way.

    Attachment 942491

    and then some doodles, practicing expression and making up some lame characters.

    Attachment 942493

    Also tried to do something for Illustration Friday.
    Attachment 942486
    I was going to leave it flat but . . .
    Attachment 942487
    theme was Rescue by the way.

    and yes I know the bodies are all wonky. I think I got my perspectives mixed up.

    and then there was this guy. . .
    Attachment 942496

    I think this sketchbook has so little crits cause no one can find any problems in it !
    love you stylized characters btw, no idea why your mother thought the portrait was horrible, maybe she took it as a joke portrait, i think its awesome!.

    umm as for crits, it seems like maybe you stick to what you know, like poses etc and it prob makes it harder for trying anything dynamic and out of comfort level, id suggest studying more poses and implementing them into some of your paintings?

    also post some more stuff
