Well, I tried this once, but my work wasn't very serious a few years ago, so I figured I'd give it another go. I'm a 21-year-old art student majoring in illustration. I would like to master watercolors, but I also work in charcoal and digital media. And I appreciate constructive crit.

Here are some random class studies... and a rabbit.
Some little studies for my illustration class...
This is the most recent life painting. The teacher wanted me to use only flat washes, instead of blending wet into wet.
Some studies for a portrait. Charcoal.
i love the studies in your third post. those lines in your most recent are nice, too!
Studies for a quick editorial illustration for class for an article about dogs and how they became domesticated.
Watercolors for class today.
Background art (very) rough sketches for an old-school adventure game I'm working on.
For class--have to draw the inner and outer landscape of a character.
You have a really nice sketchbook!
How long did the studies in #8 take to make approximately?
-Just curious since I personally would spend at least 15 out of 30 min trying to figure out the colors :p
I see a lot of great things here, and I admire your watercolorskills
The figure paintings were ten to fifteen minute poses. Unfortunately, things started falling apart in the sitting poses, but the standing ones were pretty easy....
The professor required us to use only three colors--in this case it was rose madder, cadmium yellow hue and cobalt blue hue. The first studies were just burnt sienna and ultramarine.
Thanks for the comment!
More studies... color studies this time for larger works.
five hour watercolor painting today..
some background art for my game... these are the third and fourth attempts.. which are much better than the first and second attempts. And we'll see if I can improve by the fifth and sixth attempts.
Painting in class.. but without a model. I have trouble with eyes.
watercolor in-class assignment
work in progress
Recently started working in egg tempera. One of these learning projects:
Basically painted on top of a digital sketch that I printed out onto rives bfk. Combining digital and traditional art is the way I think I want to go..
@Lostcookie: Working digitally first made painting the values much faster. I was too rushed for this one (it was a school assignment), but for future pieces I can also mess around more easily/quickly with the composition in the computer. And thank you.
My goal is to try to update my sketchbook at least three times a week, preferably once a day. Beginning with a project I am working on to build up my portfolio, where I make up imaginary stories and then illustrate scenes or book covers for them. This one is supposed to be a teen novel, adventure/love story.
