Hello and welcome to my sketchbook
My name is Monica and I'm 20 years old. I just discovered this site about 5 days ago or so and I love it here. I'm actually scared to post anything up on this site because almost anywhere I go I see amazing stuff, but I decided to post something up because I want to improve and I can't improve if I just sit here lurking on CA XD. I love to draw creature designs but I know I need humans too (sadly) so I recently downloaded a bunch of Loomis books in hopes of improving my non-existent skills of drawing humans. Anyways here are a bunch of my creature designs I have drawn in the past.
Let me know if my pics are too big >.<

Welcome to CA Monica! and congrats on your new sketchbook! you have some awesome creature designs! Im actually new to creature development but I love it! Keep them coming! And i love to see your enthusiasm! The loomis books are a golden nugget!
yogeshj15: thank you for the warm welcome
Here is some more recent stuffs
this stuff was drawn in gimp when I finally got a tablet
so I forgot to upload this guy from the batch this early morning. I notice that I have a cartoony feel with my art and I want a more realistic feel
Oh also which Loomis book would be good to read first?
Hi Razivia and welcome to CA. If you want to have a more realistic feel, start drawing from photos and life. At this stage, reference everything.
Keep em coming!
I should start with 'Figure Drawing for all it's Worth 'Oh also which Loomis book would be good to read first?
I like you creatures, maybe you should color them up (the first ones) (:
JackAnimated: Thank you for the warm welcome.
Jarkuzy: Thank you for letting me know which one because I have a bunch XD and yea I will color the first creatures.
So I took your advice JackAnimated and while I was at starbucks I drew my coffee cup. Sadly I didn't finish and I don't want to draw from my imagination yet either, bit I'll update it here anyways. And I'm also just sitting here at school waiting for my next class so I'm going to find another object to draw.
So here is a power strip
Tell me what you guys think. Any critique is welcome.
So I was waiting for my class to start and drew my boyfriends water bottle. Wasn't able to shade or add color because well i don't even know what I'm doing when it comes to color...and it also doesn't help that bottles are clear and reflects everything o.o...and then i was in class and its the first day so its boring as hell >.> so i drew a chair and drew a bit of plastic which is the abstract looking thing above the chair.
really awesome stuff and creature designs-amd for a loomis book you should probably get andrew loomis successful drawing btw- just download the pdf
