b-dawg's sketchbook - updated October 09!
My name is Ksya, I'm a girl from Russia.
At the moment I'm working in Russian small game development company as a 2D artist but I'm going to change my place of work by April 2012.
I've used to be completely self taught artist but now I'm visiting an art class.
Please give me some crits and advices and help me to become a better artist! ^__^

Great start! I loved the first batch of random faces, you seem to have a fondness for big chins and lips but you can also see you're varied enough to include other types.
(Nice pencil work too, very proffecional looking)
Hope to see more soon because I can tell this is going to be a good sketchbook.

here are some faces more.
Marilyn Manson portrait was done at 30 minutes from photo, I tried to make a "finished" pic in very small time... and to work on whole canvas, not only fix at 1-2 details.
The brown\violet guy was done at 50 minutes, it's a very simple pic but I like it.
and the girl was done as a commissioned work as a birthday present for that girl from the pic. I was limited by time and money so I didn't try to do my best, I'm not pretty much satisfied with my work but whatever...

Love the faces - would be nice to see some geometry coming through in the practices, however, as some respective positions do not seem completely believable. Keep practicing, you are doing great and creating some good looking stuff already!

I think something may have been lost in translation. I think what you were trying to say was "i'm really good at drawing landscapes" But your modesty stopped you . Luckily i'm here, and I don't need to be modest for you.
Ps. Come on msn, damnit.

Hey CJ I'm not so stupid at English I didn't lose anything in translation while writing "I suck at drawing landscapes". I didn't practise landscapes for some time but I still think that I suck at them... need more practice, as usual!
...and I'm not on MSN because of that damn calender. I'm trying to work but I think I'll give up in a couple of days. So see ya!
some more stuff from summer, lots of it unfinished. i think i'll finish some of them.
as you see I really suck at coloring, especially painting night scenes. the guy with light hair and the moon should be Lestat the Vampire, I like the face but I started painting him in black and white and I can't color with overlay and color mode. I think I'll repaint him again in color. anyway, it was experience...
