Sharon's Sketchbook (2010 - 20??)
Hello! Long time lurker here. I'm confused about which path to take, so you'll find bits of gesture/figure drawing, still life, digital, traditional, cartoons, animation, comics and illustration here.. Your critique is very valuable to me and I'll work my best to improve!
Well. The old intro sounds cheesy. So I changed it.
2010 (Hi all, its me again, with a new sketchbook. But a new challenge too.. This is a race (probably a never ending one) between my buddy MiladThaha and me, to see who can keep up with the other and to constantly work on improving our art! I'm going to be working on my drawing, painting, traditional, digital, everything..
In the beginning, there was this :
MiladThaha: so here, shake me hand
how about this?
i'm gonna compete you
even though i'm wayy wayyy wayyy wayyyyy behind you, i'm gonna come running
Sharon J: ooo, and i wont make it easy at all
MiladThaha: uh oh
and i dont want your sympathy
Sharon J: its a deal!
MiladThaha: lets roll!
Sharon J: hell yea! lets kick some art butt! xD
who am i kidding
no way, i wont let my doubts come through
WILL BEAT YOU
MiladThaha: i have a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG way to go
Sharon J: so do i!! the journey never ends
and neither do i want it to
its like this
i'm on page 1 of mindcandy's page
and you're on 30 or 40
MiladThaha: but im SOOO there x)
Sharon J: yea, but its not like i'm sitting around at page 30 or 40 either B-)
MiladThaha: i'll only know when i up my work though
Sharon J: make sure you dont bog yourself down with my awesomeness
MiladThaha: no way!
Sharon J: i'll b uploading a lot more now
MiladThaha: i may get blind, but that'll only be momentary
Sharon J: hehehe
wait till i get my scanner
Sharon J: bring it on!
MiladThaha: HELL YEAH!
Sharon J: xD i'm so off to draw!
And so it begins.
More on that later.
Cheers to you MT, may the best artist make it!

I'd listened to a podcast on 'Escape from Illustration Island', it was episode no 47 & 48 with illustrator Marshall Arisman and found it very inspiring.. In it, he said
Make a list of things you have knowledge of, whether it’s bowling or drinking coffee or dogs, and make pictures from that list. Don’t tell yourself it’s a portfolio, but show it to people.
1. Hands and feet
6. Things in motion
Started off with some study from life today.. Hands are something I have trouble with often.. So here they are, my hand and some of mom's.. Off to college now, more later!

Pretty solid sketches, but I can see heavy usage of an eraser (or are they smudges?). One way to improve is, DONT touch the eraser! If you make a mistake, do another drawing Atleast in the beginning stages!
Plus, lower the brightness of the scans, it brings up more details and emphasizes the linework.

I see you're quite soft in your sketches, (it's a good thing, don't worry xD) when you're more sure of your form though, I'd do the lines a wee bit harder, just so it's easier to see for us lot.
Anyways! It's a good start, I really love drawings of hands and some of them are brilliant.
The ones from the sides though seem a little off, maybe practice them more. Most seem to be spot on though.
Keep up the good work! I wish you both good luck on your competition. xD

Day 2 (or rather, post #2)
Haven't been drawing much, got a pretty bad cold methinks I'm en route to getting a fever..
On the art side, I love pen and ink! I've been wanting to create a finished character, so I thought why wait for later, I can start right away.. Scribbled some poses and faces today..
@ Milad: ahemhem.. you're not all that un-evil yourself you know did use the eraser a bit, yea! Thank ye for commentin!
@Naidy: Thank you so much for the feedback! Yep, I find the hands viewed from the side and foreshortened ones kinda hard, gotta draw more of those

hey Sharon, I like your line quality and those little figure doodles are very expressive and gestural. I'm the same as you, manga-influenced (initially anyway), so I know it's difficult to keep stylization from creeping into your work. But maybe try some things from life (other than hands) or try drawing some faces of real people too.

I'm gonna say it again, your lines do not appeal to me I'm not being rude or something, but I always felt that way about your sketches. But I like your forms though, and your sense of stylized anatomy is great. Now if you could just deviate from manga for a moment... xD Just kidding! But still.

Thanks for the kind words, your stuff is looking good. I really like that owl in the scribbles.

Love the randomness of the scribbles. The owl is brilliant; looks so 'Oh I haven't got time for you, peasant' you can see your improvements already!
Keep up the good work, I'll be sure to check this thread out often.
