    [insert witty title here] - Angela's Sketchbook

    First time poster, long time lurker! Okay, I'm a little intimidated to post some of my work because there's so many brilliant artists here!

    A little about myself first. My name is Angela Taratuta. I'm a 22 year old freelance artist. I've been drawing essentially my whole life and completely self-taught. I started digitally painting 5 years ago. I specialize in portraits/character design mostly but would love to get into more conceptual art. I figured starting a sketchbook here and getting helpful critique would be a great way to start!

    Some environment sketches. Something I need to work on a lot because I suck at them.

    Nice work, I really like your second environment. Your knight at the beginning is quite nice to although I think his shoulders could use a little more depth, they seem a little flat.

    Hello I recognise your name, probably because your horses are impressive! But then, so are the rest of your images. You're pretty advanced in skill already. Your proportions are great. The only two things I noticed when looking through the pictures, is that your portraits aren't entirely convincing - you seem to have a standard face in your mind that you're subtly influencing their features with (most noticeable in the Katniss drawing) but it's only very slight, I think. The other thing is that you could use a few more intense shadows and highlights, just a touch to add some depth to your sketches. The vampire is the exception, that one's already popping a lot.

    Just my opinions - but honestly, you're already really good, so just keep doing what you're doing!

    @blue7203 - Thank you! And thanks for the crit too!

    @Ceinwen Fang - Thanks so much! Yeah, I do find that some of my quick sketches lack contrast. I'll work on that.

    Okay, a few more sketches I've done in the last couple days.
