    Took My Pearl's Sketchbook

    Just a wee bit of an introduction:

    I'm a (recently) turned 18 year old wannabe artist who decided to make a conceptart because of the feedback you guys give as well as so I have a digital timeline of my art in an attempt to see if I've made progress.

    Run-on sentences aside, my interests are the arts and fashion. And that's basically it, tbh. So without further ado, just a sample of my artwork:

    I figure this piece is a good introduction into my more stylized work. It was done with India Ink on watercolor paper:

    These four were all oil studies we did in class where we went from very neat to quite sloppy. Oils on masonite (i think):

    My art class was given a project about 6 months ago to draw whatever we wanted on a 24" x 36" piece of paper. So I drew my favorite fashion photo ever! Pencil on paper:

    Those elephants look excellent, man. You seem to have a great sense for detail and as I suck at drawing fashion but still think that it's pretty cool to draw, I'm really curious what you gonna post here

    And thanks for taking a look at my sketchbook

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate you strolling by to see my sketchbook, your work is beautiful.

    Two small sketches I did today, the first sans reference and the second with:

    I intend on posting a few more sketches here throughout the day as I do them, we'll see.

    And a little something I did recently:

    @ Joe: Thank you very much! And yeah, probably the longest I've spent on a piece for any art class - 13 or 14 hours, I believe.

    @ Ludic:Thank you very much, that's very kind. The skin was the most painstaking part, I can assure you haha.

    Current project we're working on in art: make up a band and draw a poster for it etc. Since the drama of sending in our AP portfolios is over, we're just doing fun pieces for the rest of the schoolyear:

    It's a WIP, so bear with me

    @ D.M. Thank you very much!

    I apologize that it's been a while since I've posted, life is kind of hectic what with school (first semester of college, yikes) and I can't seem to find my camera anywhere to take pictures of my pieces that are too large to scan! But I have done some recent quick sketches; nothing big.

    And this one is actually about a year old, but I still like it:
