    :D Lagarto´s sketchbook. Laura is going to work HARD!

    Hello everybody!
    My name is Laura, and I´m a 19 years old spanish girl. My ambition is to be a professional artist in the future, as an illustrator or a concept artist.

    feedback, critics, and hints are highly appreciated and necessary for me, since I have no artist buddy to tell me what aspects of my drawings I could improve, or what I should work more on.

    some work from yesterday. I couldn´t upload it yesterday because my thread wasn´t still aproved.

    those are all referenced: some anatomy practise, girls from a fashion magazine , a self-portrait (the first ever) I think there is some resemblance, but I chose the bad sice of my face; some necks and shoulders, since never get them right, and some horrible hands.

    last post of today, I promise!

    I´ve been doing 3 color studies this last hour. here they are. all from reference, obviously. Not so happy with them, but I never did any environment study, so... I think it´s normal to not do it right the first time.

    You're people drawings are very good! I can see your fascination with the human form. Keep in mind when doing things with photoshop not to fall victim of using the various filters to achieve an effect too much, it makes a painting look cheesy and you don't learn half as much about rendering form that way. Stay inspired!

    Thank you Lagarto for your comment. My life Drawings usually take about 0.5min-5min-10minutes.

    You have really nice neck and head studies. Keep up the good work :3

    I did some digital poops.

    the first is a study from a photo in black and white, and the second is my try to color it sensessly. Last one is a portrait from imagination, of which I got bored quite quicky, and it looks so artificial, I don´t know why.

    A good start to your sketchbook! Keep up with the anatomy studies, they will definitley help you to improve. I think I like the first batch of pencil drawings the most so far.

    A study from a magazine I did today. I´m quite happy with this one.
    now back to study for my finals... I finish tomorrow, so this weekend I´ll try to do loads of anatomy studies.

    I finished my finals today (yay! even If I´m going to fail them all. damn physics) so from now on I will update a lot. today I only have those sketches. Today, after finishing my exam, ran home and did a poster for a contest in my school. I had about 3 hours to do a full poster, so it looks like crap, but it was to enter the contest that way or not entering it. The price is 250 euros, I had al least to try.
    so those are the sketches for the poster, I have no image for the definitive thing because I was in a big hurry. I entered the contest 5 minutes before it was closed.

    they are more stylized than what I´m aiming lately, but it´s for a school, so it was necessary.
    the second girl is referenced from a photo of Esperanza Spalding. I included a sketch of the poster I did in photoshop. (the original is colored with pencils.)

    lots of anatomy studies today! first one is a study about arms from Giovanni Civardi´s book, and the next are just a bunch of sketches, some references, some from imagination and some mixed (like drawing a dressed girl naked). There are some multi-limbs sketches, too, so fun. (I´m a big fan of Janaschi and algenpfleger ). I´m not confortable enough with my hands and feet to draw them. Must practise them, but they are kind of scary.

    please, I need critics! that´s why I opened a sketchbook. I want you to be as mean as possible.

    I really like your sketches of girls, your subtle line. My only suggestion - maybe you should try to vary them a little bit more? For example try to draw dark-skinned or Asian girls, or maybe play with eyes, noses and lips a bit more? I'm sure you can, it would be nice to see
    And I would love to see your poster coloured. Any chance of making photo of it?
    Purple-haired girl in post #7 - she doesn't look good because of too small head I think. The eyes should be always around the middle of head. I'd recommend you take a look at Loomis' 'Drawing the Head and Hands' if you didn't do it yet - this is book I'm doing my drawing exercises with right now You can download it as .pdf file, this is where you can find some links.
    Anyway I really love the brown-haired one (post #7)! She has something in her eyes. You should definitely try to finish this piece of art.

    Kauil thank you! I will try to avoid the textured brushes and effects, I know I will learn more without them

    Aragah thanks! of course I will!

    Chermilla I´m doing lots of anatomy studies. I hope it shows soon. thank you

    Ninsei yes! I´m working on more variety of features. I´ll try to take a photo of the poster, but I won´t be able to till March. And thank you so much, I already had Loomis´s book downloaded and I´m working with it. It will be useful for sure ^^


    I don´t want to update without any work to show, but I have nothing scanned, so I´ll update with two digital sketches, both from imagination. I´m trying to practise rendering. I think I´m improving in doing hair. I´m quite happy with the first one.
    critics are always welcomed!
