    Chompi'n Sketchbook

    Hi.
    I'm new here - looking to improve! (:
    you will have to excuse my english - it's not that great.

    I'm a 21 age little girl , starting my journey to Illustration now!
    Haven't drawn a-lot when I was younger, The realization that this is what I want to do
    fell on me a few years back, but I had other duties that filled my day.

    So..for my journey I will need:
    1. My motivation in a bag-pack
    2. A lot of critics! 'cause many obstacles need to be torn
    3. tips, resources, suggestions - 'cause..you are friendly? =P

    I also need a good camera and scanner (later on a Tablet)
    But till then..I will settle for lesser quality photos

    So no more yabbing - here is the startHope not too big)
    - Caricatures
    - portraits, still life, doodles
    -a few skull studies from Bammes and photos, really trying to understand

    (How do I put pictures with words in-between?)

    Wow really good start! I love the way you draw eyes. To have text in-between pictures I think you need to link pictures from an url instead of uploading them directly. Although I'm not quite sure myself. Good luck

    Your sketches look good, but unfortunately they suffer from the bad image quality. So you better get a scanner as soon as possible.

    In order to put text between your images, you have to use these tags (without any of the spaces):

    [ attach ] 1234567 [ /attach ]

    You also need to replace "1234567" with the number you see after "attachmentid=" in the URL of your uploaded image.

    I really want critics but - with this quality that I upload - pff..it doesn't look
    the same

    Wow! tnx FinalDay - now I know how to attach..hehe <:

    self portrait - trying to do one per day.Cause looking at yourself is damn hard!
    I am trying to first divide into 3 shades only, and then render, because
    I feel like I am adding too much values - and it is smudgy

    Glad it worked!

    Sadly, it is really hard to recognize the details on your landscape drawing because of the bad quality and low resolution. One thing I noticed is that you didn't put in the foreground. To add depth, it is always a good idea to divide landscape drawings / paintings into foreground, middleground and background.

    If you want to get more into landscape art, I'd recommend you Jack Hamm's book "Drawing Scenery: Landscapes and Seascapes". It doesn't cost much and is full of useful advice.

    So, keep it up!

    FinalDay: tnx! I got the book and started reading it - still at the start
    but it is interesting!

    So I have Jack Hamm book - drawing scenery, and Michael Hampton - Figure
    Drawing. Can't wait to dig in!

    It is a-bit hard to keep update because of my shitty camera >: There is
    plenty more drawing than I upload to my comp..

    Study for my art teacher

    Great work but as someone else said, shame about the resolution. Keep at it. Try experiment with colour.

    Wow, looking good in here! Seems like you've got a good understanding of the form of the face, and your rendering is lovely too! I love that study of the Thinker.

    It'd be nice to see you do more full-body stuff, and colour as well!
