    LeMk's sketchbook

    Hi, everyone! My Name is Leah and I have been sort of going through the forums on ConceptArt. I am really inspired, and I am looking to really work on my portfolio and drawing skills. I would like to make a portfolio of concept art, but I know I have to really get the basics down. So here's my sketchbook. Any advice or suggestions would be great! Thanks. =)

    I hoping I'm adding this image right. Just a drawing I was doing for an art trade, but I am thinking about redoing the coral on the turtle's back.

    Very nice studies. You seem to get your color schemes down well. And your figure studies are looking good. That turtle drawing also seems to be coming along well. I look forward to seeing the finished product! Keep practicing!!

    Comin' along nicely. (:
    I'd suggest using a bit less strokes for your lines in your sketches.

    Hey there Good stuff! I like the studies a lot. I think you should try and be more decisive with your marks though and less scratchy There is a lot of life to some of them, and more fluid lines would help that get to the next level. I think sometimes your proportions are a little bit off, like the legs are too short by a little bit... or at least it seems so to me... not sure if that is quite correct.
    My issue with the turtle image is that it would do well to have a color mood, a certain palette with a lower range of color... it would be more appealing I think, so that each component is less a local color, because that kind of colouring can make things look amateurish and rainbowy. (Which we all do until we have a better feel for colour, I still have not achieved that skill at all)
    These are examples of better approaches:

    Niquey: Thank you =)
    Wawlden: I will try more fluid lines. I think my problem is I'm not committed to my line strokes if that makes sense. I will def. work on that, thank you.
    The-Muddy: Will really work on proportions. Thank you so much, and also have more confidence in my line work, and have less choppy lines. I think you are right about the turtle being very rainbowish. I will try and tamper down the color palette. Thank you for your critique. =D!

    Figure studies. I tried to use less choppy lines. I think these are a little better, but still have a long way to go to perfect.

    You have some very neat studies going and your color usage in them is pretty fly. Your last batch of figures has some really great lines down, too. I think your character turn around looks good so far as well, only thing I would note is that on the profile, she seems to be leaning forward a little bit.

    All in all, keep it up! This is a wonderful SB start.

    Hi, nice fresh sketchbook.
    I really like the sketches in post #7.
    The character further down looks promosing, though Im not much of a punk girl fan, but that's just me.
    Why is she standing on her toes ?

    Thank you =) I drew her on her toes because when I give her clothes I wanted to give her heels. I figured it would be easier to draw the clothes on top if her feet were in the position they'd be in when she had shoes =)
