Serious Business SB
Hi there! I'm a 25 year old design student and my dream is to become a
full-time illustrator. Since daily practice is the way to improvement
I hope this sketchbook will help me not to loose my motivation. ^^
Comments and crit are totally welcome!
here are some photo studies:
my first attempt at master copy, Needlewoman by Velazquez
That's it for now, I'm gonna post some anatomy studies and more practice stuff soon!

The first one is cool. You could try to add other cool colors and tones to add more life and make it more artistic. Ariel is sweet but the skin shading is rough - maybe softer touch will be only in plus Here is the color issue again - the hair is not only light red and dark red... add orange maybe wine color. The tail too add blue tones atc...

some pencil stuff from today!
I'm trying to do more pencil shading since I mostly used them for Outlines.
pencil sketch for an artwork a friend requested for his band
This was an attempt at this weeks Chow which is Steampunk-Hero, I think I pulled off the steampunk, but not the Hero-part
and some WIP-Emoness

The artwork you did for your friend's band is really awesome! The idea is great, and the interpretation equally well.
Your pencil values and anatomy are fine, though your digital don't seem comfortable yet. In any case, you're doing the right stuff, just keep at this. Great start

@BlackDelphin Thank you very much for the encouraging words! The Design was fun and you're right about the digital stuff, I'm not quite comfortable with painting yet, I hope I can work on that by doing more foto and life studies.
also from today, a portrait from life I did with the mirror I bought for my desk (looks kinda weird, having this huge mirror on my desk but oh well...)
Also normally I wear glasses but I didn't want to paint them, but I couldn't take them off either cause everythings blurry without them so I had to improvise a little

Nice lookin' sb you got here, I'm really digging your color studies. One thing about your mermaid piece, though, watch the shadows on her left arm (our right). The way you have it almost makes it look like a shirt sleeve.
Keep posting! ^^

Hi there! I think more stilllifes will give you better results at this stage. Painting from refs is helpful but it's still a 2D. Once you've mastered the color, doing refs things will take less time.
Have a good one.

Thanx for visiting my SB I like your studies a lot especially from imagination. The only advice I can give, is to try to use bigger strokes at first and than bit by bit go to small strokes. Like on #7 or third pic on #1 we see a lot of strokes that we don't really need. But anyway, you've improved a lot, so keep this work and you'll get perfect very quickly
