    Redidge's Bridge to Greatness

    Hi CA, my name's Becca, I'm 16, this is my sketchbook (not sorry for the dumb title), I hope to keep it updated regularly. I've been drawing since I was young(er?) but since I was about 14 I've had this vague 'knowing' it's what I'd like to make a career out of I guess.
    I think I'd like to be an animator or something of the like, making characters and telling stories is what I enjoy doing most with art. I have no idea how I'm going to get there, I'll just wing my way through education then see how things go.
    Thank you for visiting, help me out with some advice or a crit!

    Some more stuff I wanted to attach to my previous post but didn't in case I screwed up the other images. Also this sketchbook isn't going to be NSFW so I'm not sure why I did that

    These are just sketches from around college and home. Also some digital stuff, I'm very very bad with colours and lighting so I hope to improve in those areas.

    oh hey!! thanks for stopping by and thanks for the awesome advice!! you got lovely works here I like your lose lines and your portraits up there! and those animations makes me wanna try making one too xD hmmm~ and advice to see colour? that's a really hard question, I'll try my best to explain what goes in my head, I actually learned about of seeing colour in my physics class back then when my teacher said that there is colour bouncing everywhere at different wavelengths, but anyways when I see colour I'm constantly thinking of values and lighting,Redidge's Bridge to Greatness

    so something like this. then afterwards I start to think about temperature and it's background, like on the far right side of the sphere the lighting is not just a bright gray, it has cool blue/gray I'm guess the blue comes background (or a natural light where the sky is blue) letting some of the colour bounces on to it, however on the right side of the circle, you have reflected lights in the shadow that has a warm feel to it due to the light source it's receving

    , I'm not really sure if this helps T__T I find that looking at the temperature and it's surrounding helps me when I see sorts of colours

    Picking up the pace

    Awesome, thanks so much! What you say about looking at it in terms of warm and cool helps a lot, and temperature, I never looked at it that way before, something's definitely clicked into place I think. I am going to have to apply this knowledge to some studies soon, cheers for this post!!

    dumb TV stills & gestures from today and last night, I am going to push myself do some more things with colour and photoshop soon though! Great stuff

    Cool stuff. i would advice you to keep doing traditional studies. Also take more time on a study than you usually do. Your studies look very careless and quick. Take for example an hour for a single figure study. Don't rush into dificult angles and figures in motion. To do that you have to be able to draw a precise human figure from front view and maybe a side view. Open an anatomy book and look at the muscle groups that you're drawing so that you're not just copying the image but analysing and studying it. Gestures are something that you should do after you're able to do a normal figure drawing.
    If you're in art college you'll most likely start learning geometric figures- cubes, rectangles, spheres, pyramides etc... They will help you gain basic knowledge of how obejcts behave in 3d space. The human figure is something way more complex than a cube so that's why in every art school you start with these basic stuff.
    And once again take more time on a study. I am sure that these quick scribbles do not reflect your complete drawing skills. Push yourself to the limit.

    More studies

    ivan- Thanks for this, I never finish/take time with anything because after a while I get irritated but I will try to push myself to complete things, cheers
    oto- Hey, thank you

    I've been focusing on colour lately because I usually avoid it, it's proving to be really challenging. So, some egg studies and then a self portrait I did afterwards. Any advice on how to progress with this would be ace

    You've got such a nice fluidity to your lines!
    The thing you need most now are some form and mass studies. Take a reference and carefully study it's volumes from the inside out, start seeing things in three dimentions.
    Don't worry too much about digital painting for now, it will come extremely easy once you get your fundamentals straight.
    Curious to see how you evolve.

    Great start! You have a nice fluid movement to your pieces, but I agree that it would be good to do some longer pieces to0, and really develop them. Also, maybe do some more basic still life pieces to practice some of that. With color, it might help to so some greyscale pieces first to really get a sense of the values. Then the transition to color should be easier...at least that is what I have gleaned from others. I am just a beginner.

    chevy28360- thanks for the advice!
    Sleep.less- Thank you! I definitely need to revise my fundamentals, I'm working on forms
    amaranthxx- what you say about values is makes a lot of sense, cheers!

    Somewhat of a delayed update, but I've been taking into account the advice I've been given! here's some of what I have to show for it, Ive been trying to filter out some of my more rushed sketches, to make the sketchbook a bit tidier. Colour and I are on a break until I've familiarized myself with value a little more.

    Those figures you just posted are really great! Although I think it would be cool to see more polished/finished work from you, great job so far.
