I'm Loweryi, aka Nika.
I figure I may as well preface my actual sketchbook-posting with some info about me. I actually joined CA way back in 2008, but at the time was far too self-conscious about my horrid art to post it somewhere where there were so many more amazing artists running rampant. Maybe part of me was afraid of critique, I don't know; however, I'm more willing to attribute it to the insane fact that I am far more afraid of embarrassing myself on the internet than in public. I'm odd like that.
But it's been two years, and I definitely can look back on some old art and say I've improved. However, I also know that now is the time I need the most critique and advice and suggestions. I really want my future to focus on art (specifically, one day I'd love to draw concepts for videogames and the like, but on a website called ConceptArt, who doesn't?!) and this year I'll be working on applying to transfer to an art college.
Summing up the past few years of my life in a (run-on) sentence: I was fed up with highschool after sophomore year, so I dropped out in order to go to college, am currently a sophomore in college, and while I could stay at the school I'm at for all four years, I want to simply receive my AA after these first two and afterwards go to an art school for Game Art and Design.
In a place like this, surrounded by better artists, I will take any advice I can get.
(P.S., I apologize for the rather bad photos. Anybody have any advice on how best to take pictures of traditional art, as my scanner is currently out of commission?)
