Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
My name is Elisabeth and I think I have actually some very old sketchbooks here somewhere with an other account. But it was years ago and I don┤t think I want to show the world those sketches again (or at least I don┤t want to see them);-) So I decided to start a new account and a new sketchbook!
Anyway, as most of you, drawing and painting is my life and I aim to become an illustrator/concept artist/fine art artist one day. I mostly work with traditional mediums, like ink, charcoal, graphite, and oil. But I am also a happy newbee in digital graphics as well, I have just recently bought a wacom and I am now eager to improve my skills in digital painting!
By the way, I am from Sweden and I consider myself not so good in English (thank you Google Translate) so please be nice to me! ;-)
I would love to have critique on my stuff. I really want to improve and I hope that starting a new sketchbook will help me to get more focused and productive.
Here are my recent works, some finished traditional stuff (graphite, ink and oil) and some digital (speedpaintings):

Here is my recent drawing (graphite), around 86x110 cm:
Your graphite work is superb. Very soft and calm. I love it.
I like your work; you're very good at capturing mood.
...and the English is fine, too
Your work is really interesting, of course accomplished, but what struck me was your composition: which is something I am currently putting more focus on, and, as was mentioned your understanding of lighting is good, I cannot think of any crits at the moment.
Thank you guys!
Todays speedpainting in Photoshop! (around 1,5 hour) I used reference for this and I think there are some value- and anatomy issues here and there...
One more: done in Photoshop, around 4-5 hours. Reference used for the girl.
I got the idea of making some conceps of a "10 seconds later" follow up on the last painting, so I decided to make two quick sketches (around 30 min). Perhaps I will continue later with one of these into a final image.
Here is a charchoal drawing I started a while ago but have not got the time to finish it yet
I wanted to practise more on establish form and value so I did a painting of a skull from reference. Done in Photoshop, around 8 hours.
Everything you do has an ethereal feel to it. Super awesome. : )
This is my first time doing some character thumbnails (a school project for a short course in concept art I am taking), but it was fun and I think I learned a lot! I tried to make them loose and sketchy and limit myself with 30 minutes, but it was hard not to get stuck in doing details.
Some environment thumbnails, and the final concept:
Wow, those are some neat atmospheric drawings. To be honest, I don't really have anything to say right now in terms of critiquing. I'll just say you have nice moody color tones for your pieces. Keep it up!
More studes: two headstudies and a master copy (Bouguereau).
More digital, done in Photoshop.
Another digital sketch. It was inspired by last weeks ChoW ( "the thing under the bed) here on CA. I am going to finish it some day, hopefully I would love to hear your thoughts about it so far!
