Art happens - Helila's sketchbook
I thought starting a sketchbook thingy might be a good thing... though to be honest I rarely do sketches, because they usually turn in to full drawings before I even realize what I'm doing.
Anyways, I can't really tell what is my skill level, because I've been drawing for a loooooooong long time and wanted to be an artist since kindergarten, but I only started learning it like 3-4 years ago. My big dream is to become a concept artist, and bring a bunch of amazing characters to life among my own.
Advices and crits are welcome of course.

I did a reaction meme for one of my characters, Hella. I plan on doing the same for my other OCs too.

Also, I've always wondered how other artists do that kind of "colored, but not really colored" thing with their drawings, and attempted to do the same... well... not what I've imagined, but not bad.
These are all my characters, and I have a few more I want to draw like this, just haven't got the time to sit down drawing again. Maybe tomorrow, hmm...

Oh, half of the sketchbook is still missing since the update. Well, guess I'll just reupload the old ones and with some new stuff.
First, these "painterly" style portraits I did a few days ago. I like this style, it's much more fun than realistic paintings.

I also figured out it would be interesting to redraw/repaint my terrible old drawings. There is only 3 years between the two pictures, so I'm kinda proud how this turned out, might make some more later.

The colored version of the previously posted short walking animation.
My tablet started to mess up at the end, so I had to hurry up a little.

Well I'm back from vacation and over another little art block, so here's what I've been messing around in the past few weeks. I didn't really had any patience for lenghty, realistic works, just quick ones. Like these, made for a Draw yourself as meme...

I love your artwork
here is a little critique: for your walking woman animation. Your walk cycle, although it's a good start needs a little more up and down to give you character some weight. I linked a little reference tutorial that explain what I mean a little better
keep up the good work. I love that piece you put that was a redraw of something you did 3 years ago. You improved a lot! I always like seeing those. Sometimes as artists we feel like we haven't improved and then when we look back a older stuff it makes us feel better because we can see a difference. Anyways, have a nice day.

Do you use references when creating the animations? Where do you find your references if you do use them?
Thanks, nice sketchbook

Yep, it's easy to get a little lost and discouraged, especially when it seems that other people are improving faster than you. Guess this applies to every artist, not only beginners but pros too.

Well, for the walking one I searched and used multiple photoshoots. For the ones about my OCs, I either googled gifs about the actors I've choose as a faceclaim, or just stumbled upon them by accident. Tumblr is a great source for gifs btw.
EDIT: whenever I draw with tablet I use some kind of ref, mostly stock from DevArt or my own pencil drawings.

You are on a right road to fulfill your dreams and to become a concept artist,
cause you are a consistent, diligent hard working person, who cannot accept
failure, only success. Your sketches are looking wonderful and you are a true
master at GIF making, you are a well rounded all versed ever evolving rarely
revolving cool artist. Becoming a king or queen of your pencil jungle, don’t
forget to do studies in your bonus time, cause you are great but you will
become even greater. As a sweet cherry keeps shining more than a raspberry,
you will reflect true patience and energy of steady improvements.
Do keep on posting, sharing your art and never be
afraid to roll the dice at its highest price.
