    Neave's Sketchbook

    Hello everyone,

    I have finally mustered the courage to post my artwork on these brilliant forums. I am absolutely stunned by the talent of the artists here hence I am a bit nervous.

    A little about me: My name is Neave Lifschits. I am 19 years old. I currently live in Israel and I study at the Tiltan College of Design. For now, I'm in a short course teaching the three basic design programs (PS, Illustrator and Indesign). The real studies, the first year, begins in October and sadly, my illustration courses only begin on the second year.

    I have only studied art with a teacher for a month or two but I have always been that kid in class that drew in the back row. I have about two years of experience with photoshop and I guess I have been drawing seriously for about a year now, mainly with pencil on paper. Recently, I've gone more into digital art and that is currently my main focus.

    Sketched my girlfriend while she read a book. She kept moving so I didn't get a chance to colour but I quite enjoyed drawing this.

    This piece is called Red Cardinal of the North. It's still a work in progress but I am really happy with it. I think its a big improvement for me.

    Nice sketchbook. It's always cool to see other people take an interest in "nature" subjects. One thing that I notice is that you focus more on detail than on basic structure. That's something you could work on.

    Thank you. I certainly love nature, and animals specifically. Ever since I was young I really wanted to draw them.

    Thank you for the criticism too. I think I understand what you mean.

    Oh, and thank you for being the first one to comment on my sketchbook. I thought this day would never come

    You have very burned colors and they are very simple. What I mean you make the leaves with just one color and maybe the dark version of it the flower too just one color and white. You can add some yellow and bright green in the leaves and maybe purple in the blue flower try not to use simple colors. And about the white - in the nature there is almost nothing which is really black and really white. Use very bright blue instead or every color near the white point but not white.
    The pencil work is messy - keep the fingers and the hand away in order not to have this stamps and smudges.
    I can say I like the bird most but this hard strokes on the feather bothers me.

    Good luck!

    The pencil sketches were one of my first ever serious sketches so I didn't really pay attention to that. Plus, I'm assuming with time and all the moving around it smudged a bit.

    I know what you mean about the hard strokes. I'm still working on this piece so hopefully you'll like it more when its complete.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I decided to take a friend's friendly advice and draw from my head. So, with no reference, a piece has been created. I call it 'The Wanderer'.

    Nice sketchbook! The red cardinal is shaping up, but in the future I'd recommend starting with a big hard edged brush and working out the basic areas of tone before diving into the detail. Once you got the big areas of tone down you'll notice you don't have to draw every feather to get a feathery look, and it makes for a better design since you can control the points of interest in a piece by adding detail to the most important parts.

    Yesss another newbie welcome welcome. I've only just joined after lurking and being nervous about seeing some of the work that gets posted here. Anyway, the flowers at the top are fab. Could I make a suggestion? When drawing stuff like human and animal hair you get a better look by sketching out more the form of the mass, rather than the individual strands.

    The animals are sketches for a children's book that I am illustrating and the weird raccoon like animals are a present for my girlfriend's birthday.

    P.S. It's a surprise so don't tell her
