    Zen's Sketchbook

    So I'm an artist, and I struggle a lot with things like "what I want out of my art" or whatever.
    I've been told a good bit about my strengths and weaknesses, but I'm always looking for more feedback on what I need to improve, and /how I might do it/, should anyone be so kind.


    Comments or crits would make me a happy camper, and I'd be especially thrilled to have any amount of reference material thrown my way (or pointed out to me, whichever).

    For an art jam group.

    About halfway through the exercise I stopped trying to
    pull shapes from character features and just draw something
    based around the shape on the whole.

    I think I made some definite before/after progress.
    I found they can be useful as much in composition as design,
    and make for a more bold and dynamic image.
    Fun stuff.

    Tried to paint a picture and I was having some issues with it.
    Here we have the work in progress and a resketch after some suggestions from friends, which, incidentally is a bit closer to the original image I had in mind.

    And also some loosening-up sketches. For funsies.

    Thank you Seage.
    Most of my art is oriented around stories and whatnot, so it's really nice to know that shows through.

    Wip of the repaint.
    But I've been told by about three people I'd have to start over on it to get it looking decent, so I've opted to put it off for a while.
