    Mindy's sketchbook!

    Greetings, all! The name's Mindy and I'm a 15 year old aspiring concept artist. I'm planning to attend Art Center in Pasadena for Entertainment Design once I graduate and that's only 2 years away, so I decided to buckle down and practice more. I will try my best to update everyday. If you're curious about my progress, I have some artwork from 2011, 2012, and some more pieces from this year in a couple of albums on my profile. Critiques are greatly appreciated! Thanks, xo

    You are really good at drawing faces and the anatomy looks pretty good to me. Only thing that seems off is perspective. Also try to get out of your comfort zone more, you'll improve faster.

    I'm laughing so hard right now, oh my goodness
    I just attempted to paint some muscles but instead of focusing on the placement of the abs and the highlights and shadows and whatnot, I payed wayyy too much attention on blending the colors together. So the outcome was an unfinished painting with lots of oddly placed tumor-like things, hah!

    Cripes, you're good for your age. Makes me wish I'd taken drawing more seriously when I was young. =)

    Not much crit to provide, since I'm roughly at your level too, give or take in different aspects. Study the fundamentals, of course. There's tons of info all over these forums about those. Good advice above about leaving your comfort zone.

    really great faces so far, but i think it would be cool to see more completed figures, as most of the things you posted were portraits or waist up. Keep it up though!

    Oooh wow, I really love the style of the faces, and the environment painting! Hmm. As for Critique, I'd say work on anatomy. Mostly muscles and proportions I think, to add more definition to your figures. Gesture drawing is also a great thing to try if you're not as comfortable with full body figures.

    Thank you all for your kind words! I will definitely take all of your suggestions into consideration and practice/study more anatomy.

    I liking what I see so far, especially that landscape there. Those steroids are freaky, reminds me of the talking hand in Vampire Hunter D, but this guy have talking abdominals XD. Anyway, in this case I'd say to pay attention to the transition between light and dark (where the muscles bend) because if the value transition doesn't get right, the volume and form gets lost. The forearm and hand are fine. Go go go!

    You seem to have a strong sense of construction and how stuff works, so I'd love to push you to also add in some animals, especially mammals. Adding animals to your forte opens you up to lots of new opportunities.

    Looking good. Good to see your anatomy studies. Those face sketches are also pretty sweet.

    I also took an analytical figure drawing class last summer.

    Here are a few studies from the beginning of the class:

    ..and some more that were drawn on the very last day of the class:

    Not only did I learn the basics of human anatomy, but I also learned the importance of form and thinking before sketching (which helped me create cleaner drawings).

    Here are some fun doodles!
    I'm currently working on my portfolio for Art Center College of Design for the spring 2015 term. I'll be posting it once I'm finished (which is around the end of September); wish me luck!

    Welcome back to ConceptArt. That analytical figure drawing class looked like it was really useful. I don't remember anyone trying to teach me something constructive when i went to art school.

    Anyhow things look really good here and the only real advice I got for now is to don't forget about the feet on your figures. The only feet that I have seen here has not been defined properly. Feet are kind of tricky to draw but they are really important for standing figures.
