    Etchpea, sketchpea

    Hello all! I am new here and still don't quite understand how this site works very well, so sorry in advance for any screw-ups.

    My name is Etchpea, I'm 24 and I'm just about to finish college for illustration, but I'm very intimidated because I don't feel even nearly ready to become a professional yet. I have so much to work on, it's so daunting!! Any and all comments and crits are appreciated.

    Here's some stuff I already done did. Most (if not all) of them still require lots of touch-ups.

    I've been attempting to do portraits of various characters of mine in my free time lately. They're still quite stylized, as I used to (and still do) draw in a very heavily anime-influenced style, but I hope I'm starting to get better with "same face" issues.

    More practice, I really like mammatus clouds, like the mature person I am...


    should I be resizing these more for the site? I think they might be kinda big, right?

    @tabletopper, thanks so much, and you're welcome! He's not Thor, but if I made a movie and his character was in it (yeah, right!), I'd get Chris Hemsworth to play him.

    as for stuff we have this week...

    this is ssooorrt of done, but my illustration class will probably tear it apart in crit tomorrow, hahah. I'm still not sure how I feel about it, I think I've been staring at it too long.

    oops, sorry it's been a while! I had a portfolio due so everything else in my life took back seat, including sleeping and eating...
    almost all of this are either brainfart doodles, or halfway done. I have a terrible habit or working on a million things at once.

    some more random things. I'm a little worried that I'm not consistent enough.

    I'll try to upload once a day or two instead of dumping a bunch of stuff every couple weeks, I think.

    Nice stuff here!
    Your use of parallels in some work stands out, giving to it fresh feel!
    Keep it up, mate

    thanks so much @chaos c:

    I did some speedy things today.
    The portrait is done without any kind of reference, everything else was photoref'd from pictures of the Isle of Skye in Scotland and the Giant's Causeway in Ireland. I miss living in the UK a lot.

    edit: wowww I am really terrible at remembering to resize things... sorry about all the huge pictures!

    The images in the first post look amazing! The time you spent on these (I bet it was a lot) was really worth it.

    What surprises me is that some of the pieces break the high level of quality you are showing here, like they were made by Etchpea from the past. Strange proportions and a different color palette. But these are mostly the doodels, so nevermind

    Keep posting!

    Till next time.

    thanks KiBa! The quality definitely fluctuates too much, the first post was all of my best stuff from last semester but then when I browsed other people's sketchbooks I realized most people posted whatever they'd drawn that day and their doodles and studies, so I thought I should do that too. I could do with a general quality boost in my stuff though...
