    Don't go in the water - sharks' sketchbook

    Hey everyone! I've been lurking around here for a couple weeks and I finally mustered up the courage to make my own sketchbook.

    I've never been one to practice fundamentals outside of art classes, and I'm hoping that posting here will inspire me to study the basics.

    Anyways, feel free to comment and critique!

    The black and white image is very beautiful. I love her profile. I enjoy seeing it go a bit further.

    I respect people who paint, as I do not. You don't need anything to worry about. Keep it coming.

    Thanks for the comments guys! I appreciate it!

    Did some three-ish minute gestures, a wip from imagination, some line art practice, and an old still life from around June or so.

    The colors in your studies seem easy and flowing, I like that. I'm super fond of the cap on the ramune bottle, I don't know why.

    Here are some unfinished photo studies and some 5 minute gesture drawings. And also, a sketch of a turn around.
    Next time I'll try to draw some landscapes!!

    The profile of the girl in the picture that you currently have as the thumbnail for this thread is so gorgeous.

    I love your work's airy simplicity and colour. Please keep it up Consider me subscribed. The facial portrait and hand study in #2 are lovely. I'd love to see you try something "ugly". Meaning, a portrait that's dark and a little bit grotesque. Just to see what you can do with it.

    Those are some great hand studies, did you use the eyedropper to get the colors? Nice loose expressive lines on your figures.

    Going to start studying landscapes/cityscapes and whatnot. Thought I'd start with something easy.

    I like what you're doing with mixing the studies and imaginative work.
    You might like to think about trying to incorporate some longer studies, still lives, figures, copies (masters, etc), etc.

    That islander-looking girl with the flowers in her hair is such. A beautiful. Painting. I'm head over heels for it.

    I love the bold painterly style you have with your figures. I think once you get your feet wet doing environment studies your gonna rock it.
    I agree with Blue skies on the island girl - it's awesome - I think your first pic is my fave, I love the hair
    happy sketching!

    Okay, so this is nuts because I just clicked on your sketchbook randomly, but do you have an oekaki? I'm pretty positive I used to draw on it! Anyway, I don't know if you remember me or not, but I love seeing your non-oekaki stuff! Great work!
