Hi everyone, I decided to stop feeling so intimidated and post a sketchbook here. I've looked to this community as a lurker for a long time, and I feel it's finally time for me to participate.
I absolutely love digital drawings and fantasy themes, but with my work hours I'm finding a lot less time and motivation to draw. I'm hoping this thread will also help keep me motivated.
Here's are some sketches I did in photoshop, when I don't have the time to render I often go for a soft watercolor look.

Hey! Glad to have you posting here! I like what im seein' so far. The colors on that pony are rich and the first armored girl sure is cute~ I know you said you're really into digital media, but is there any chance you can share some traditional pencil and paper scans? It would definitely help give us a better idea of your strengths and weaknesses since you cant readily undo and fix things infinitely like you can on the computer.
Cool stuff, hope to see more soon!
Yay! for getting over your intimidation . The first post is the scariest >.<
Fun stuff so far though, I LOVE that little pegasis!!! So feisty!
+ a vote for pencil sketches.
As promised- some pencil/ink sketches!! (Sorry if my posts are timed weird- a few are stuck in moderation.)
I have a lot more, maybe too much more to post! I'll stick to newer drawings.
loving your sketchbook so far. What did you use for the dog sketches n the last pics, ink and brush? some nice textures in there
I don't think they carry the exact pen anymore, but that place is a secret goldmine of sketching supplies!!
Nice sketchbook! I like the way you play with inks!
Thank you very much! Once I move in two weeks I'm hoping I can make more time to do some traditional oil portraits. I haven't done one in forever!
Cool sketchbook, I really like the way you use the inks, especially on the eleventh page. Keep up the good work
Thank you for the kind words. I have a few scraps from recent. I haven't been drawing much since I moved.
This tiger was drawn in from start to finish with only sharpies. I just about killed that yellow.
The portrait is just a random person for practice, I'm definitely not satisfied with it though. I need to start breaking up planes with shapes and colors rather than obsessing over rendering.
lately I haven't had much entertainment, the only furniture I have is my computer. I watch a lot of Simpsons after work, so I did a few sketches yesterday.

Who-hoa. I really dig your stuff. I just followed you on tumblr. Eager to see more. 8D
Hey carly, you can do better than this! Not an update in 5 months?! C'mon delight us with a beautiful sketch at least
