    Road to Improvement - Ildora's Sketchbook

    Hey guys, first time posting here but I've been lurking for a while before I created this account.
    I'm a 16 year old student living in the UK, I am in my final year of secondary school and will soon be going on to art school.
    My dream is to become an Entertainment Concept Artists, but I know that I have ALOT of practice to do.

    Please be as harsh as you can with criticism, don't worry, I can take it .

    I guess I'll start off by posting some of my drawings/digital paintings.
    Sorry if they are too big and about the composition, I'm not sure what is a suitable size.

    Not a bad start . There are tonnes of reference on this site to get you started. I recommend the same thing to everyone -perspective - not just floating cubes and spheres, but the really boring ones with horizon lines and rulers.
    You can never do too many perspective studies.

    happy sketching - welcome to CA

    Really good start! I'm also a student in art I think you're on a good go. I like your light studies you did. My favourite is the one with the apple. I think the color and the reflexion on the water are really well done on this one. Keep pushing you anatomical studies, first beacause it helps a lot and also I see a certain improvement in your drawings since the begining of your sketchbook. Good job! ^^
