EDIT 4/11/2014: New introduction! I'm 18 years old, a high school student who will study illustration at MICA starting fall 2014. I'm aiming to be either a concept/visual development artist someday.
Feedback is always welcome!
EDIT 7/8/2013: I should make a new introduction here (disregard the one at the bottom, I'm only keeping that for memory's sake). Hello I am 17 years old, high school student. I want to be a concept artist or industrial designer in the future! Go to the second page for more of my work.
Feedback, critiques, and comments are all welcome! Enjoy~
Hello there! I am a high schooler who just completed sophomore year. I turned 16 in April and my dream is to be either a concept artist, illustrator, or animator in the future.
I've been stalking a few people's CA sketchbooks for quite a while now, but today I've decided to join in.
So... I hope you enjoy my sketchbook, and I absolutely love feedback! I hope I improve my art a lot by the next year.

Hey welcome to CA awesome portrait! especially when it's done by a gershtunkin' 16 year old. The hair over the forehead you can tell was done hastily as well as the neck and I think the eye on the left may be slightly off. haha way better than a portrait than I can do in photoshop, at the moment. I'd like to see more definitely.
Goddayum, I'm older than you and I don't look half as good as that. XD Your work here is fantastic, whatever you're doing, keep on doing it, you're on a good path.
The only thing I'm able to point out is your structure. In some of your pieces facial structure looks like it's not really there, like the features are floating rather than connected solidly together. In your first pic I think it's the glasses that makes it look like that. Glasses are a bitch.
Update again soon, you've got some great stuff here and I, for one, want to see more.
Hey there! sorry I haven't been able to update more recently, I'm taking classes at CCA and they've been helping a lot. I'm currently working on traditional art, like anatomy and such. I've always avoided drawing poses but I'm going to try to fix that this year and draw full bodies more. If anyone can give me some pointers on my anatomy (especially on my male anatomy) it would be great. And thank you so much for all the lovely comments, and yep, I'll be sure to work on my facial structure too!
I went to a figure drawing session today.. the next time I go, I'll work on hands and faces more.
Oh, and the pictures with charcoal/ink/watercolor scribbles on them is just me warming up/trying out these mediums. Not sure why I drew cartoony dragons either, but ah, here they are I guess!
Dear god I need to update more. ;-; Been very busy lately with traditional art. I guess it's good to practice everything so here's something with sumi ink (or was it Indian? I forgot) I haven't used it in years! drawn from a live model
I've been working a lot on traditional art so I can catch up to my digital skill level (I think currently my digital is better than my traditional SO IT'S TIME TO PRACTICEEEEEE)
