    Stella's Journey

    Hello everyone,

    I am 20 years old and I have the dream of becoming an illustrator/2D artist one day. I am working very hard to get this dream fullfilled.

    So I'm starting this sketchbook with a collection of my later works.
    I'm always openminded for comstructive critique.

    Thanks a lot, Adelenta! That's a great compliment coming from you ♥

    So far, I practiced more lately.
    Sadly I forgot where I found the reference.

    Thank you very much, Adelenta! ♥ Glad you liked them.

    Now I am quite happy with how my last study turned out.
    Couldn't find the reference link anymore though.:/

    thank you very much, zach C:

    nothing special here, i just hate how the quality of the photos make these studies look even more crappy than they already are :p

    there's probably nothing worse to me than drawing animals.

    Welcome to CA! Nice stuff by the way. An advice: calling your studies crap won't change a thing, so I don't think there's sense in self-flagellation. Understanding what is wrong and what to do in order to become better will get you to your dream far quicker.
    Nevermind anyway..

    If anyone has some tips for me how I can make my photographed pencil works look proper, please don't hesitate.
    I'm pretty disappoint that my okay-looking sketches look that horrible on PC.
    And yes, I have played around with levels, brightness/contrast and all that stuff a lot already

    Thanks, caaraa.


    Well, maybe I have looked too much through the Sketchbooks of Maidith or Algenpfleger, but I feel overwhelming doubts of myself and I am seriously not sure if I ever reach my goal of becoming a good artist....

    I don't know why I don't stop to tease myself with picking up the pencil evr'yday
