    owlies' sketchbooook


    hallo, my name is anastasia, welcome to my sketchbook! thanks for looking, i hope you'll help me along.
    i am now eighteen, i started this sketchbook when i was 16. right now i'm in a gap year after high-school, i have trust in my own growth, and am learning many many things.
    i'm here to learn how to see, and how to come close to images precious to me. a lot of it is also seeing how much i can play.

    i started without any direction, but now i am approaching an aesthetic, and am very curious to see how it'll change and move.

    More stuff.
    Attachment 1481019 Here is a portrait I had to do for a school assignment, in charcoal. I think this turned out better than I expected.Attachment 1481021
    A small study of a photo I did to test my eye, it didn't turn out too well, the windows are all wonky. (After this I'm going to start studying perspective seriously! )

    a masters study
    Attachment 1481024
    apple study I did for about an hour, it was my first try. (I actually did this before the portrait above.) I realize that I should have removed the sketchy outline of it now. ` _ ` ;

    Thanks for looking!

    Hey owlies, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, great studies here, keep it up! I dont' really have any criticism except the perspective seems a bit off in the third drawing ,which you already pointed out

    Brilliant style. Love the charcoal looking texture on the street view. Also owl concept is striking and very well done. I want to see more like owl one! Keep up the good work!

    Wow, thank you so much for your kind words guys! ; ___ ;

    @Steeliebob: Thank you, I will definitely continue. (:
    @sammfshields: aa you're very welcome, thank you for visiting mine! I'll do some perspective studies so that in the future things will be less wonky.
    @crawlenator: Thank you so much! : D I'll definitely do more nature-focused traditional things like the owl one, eventually I want to direct my style that way, it appeals to me.

    Back to posting; here is another assortment of some old things.
    That last one took an eternity for me to do, something like 40 hours. It wasn't really my favorite subject matter, and I was stupid and didn't get any references so I had a very difficult time. I would really like some critique on it, please! Hopefully I can fix it up digitally. ; _ ;
    I was already told that the left guy's arm is too long, but anything else? ):

    Thanks for looking!

    figure study at school, I don't know why I didn't shade her legs. I need to do more of these, the hands in this are silly.

    I agree to Crawlenator you are on a great way of creating a style here. The thing about style is that it is something that should keep evolving! always keep doing sill experiments.

    From the last one i really like the chess image, but I think it could be improved by making the different pieces more distinct. putting one piece on a horse, giving the queen a crown and the kin a scepter. Well you get the idea.

    @ Steeliebob- You're right. That is really reassuring, thank you. Thanks for the input, I'll see if I can add that.

    Cloud study from a photo with interesting colors, because I have no clue how clouds work. ` - `
    Attachment 1482841
    I was trying to recreate the lighting I remembered from a video demo showing someone painting two spheres, not sure if I was wholly successful because it looks like the light source for each is coming from a different angle..
    Attachment 1482845
    aand here is a crop of a doodle that I didn't finish because I didn't know what to do with it. I was experimenting with a new brush.


    Sorry for the bland post!

    Great start! loving those owls you first posted, the 3rd one on post #2 is great! yes, you do have to work with perspective (as you said), the watercolor of the birds is very nice
    and so is the 5th one on the same post, the winter one, anyways, keep posting!

    I really like the dark look you achieve in digital painting, like in the pictures of birds, the one labeled winter, and the last one Keep it up!
    And thank you for looking at my sketchbook!
