    Icon 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.

    So here's some stuff from my little sketchbook.

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

    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. .

    Some random doodle in my notebook.

    Name:  siete.jpg
Views: 929
Size:  112.3 KB

    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.

    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

    Loving the blue girl in post 19!
    On the CHOW 199, the forearm looks too short. THe piece has a nice feeling, though.
    Keep at it, those are good works!

    Abrodos - Thank you for pointing that out. I just fixed it.

    Phantasy, My57, Norris, and Dieoblack - Thank you for commenting!

    Not much to show I've been working on some WIP's that have been collecting digital dust in my hardrive. Hopefully I'll show those soon.

    In the mean time here are a few little drawings I've done.

    And alright here's a WIP that I'm having trouble with anatomy wise.
    When I sketched it I didn't really plan out how those arms were gonna be. I had I rough idea but I forgot already. So now I'm stuck.
    Her right arm and hand are being especially troublesome.

    This is definitely telling me to do more anatomy studies. I knew I should have sketched this out before. But it's obvious that I'm a moron.

    help?
