    My BIG journey to improve!

    Attachment 1838989
    Hi everybody !
    I'm Laureline, I'm 21 and I'm from France, I was a student art and now I'm trying to work by my own, that's why I think
    I need to focus my work in one direction and need some advice. On that account,today I'm sharing you my
    work because I want to improve and become a professional artist/illustrator ... Anyway, professional !! I truly want it and now, for a long time !

    My main problem it's I don't really find inspiration or composition to create or finish a sketch, drawing, etc ...
    I hope to find answers among you.
    All comments,critics,advice will be received with pleasure.

    ( There are mostly unfinished works or my first approach with sketchbook, some studies etc )

    I absolutely LOVE this piece of yours. It's so elegant and just wonderful to look at. Nicely done!

    My one suggestion would be in the eyes. For some reason, something looks really off there to me. I think it might be the left one. I know she's looking away from the "camera" but I took the image into PS and played around with pupil-placement just to see, and came away with this:
    Name:  Draw__eyechange.png
Views: 640
Size:  560.8 KB

    I mean, it certainly changes it, since now she's looking AT the viewer, but I think it adds a piercing quality that "staring straight off" doesn't quite capture. Even if you didn't want to change the sight-line, you might still consider playing with the pupils a touch, because they feel a little crooked in the original. And that's a shame because the entire rest of it is so, so lovely. I'd love to see it picture perfect.

    Nice work!

    I enjoyed to draw that pic and I'm quite happy to have played with that texhnic.
    Let me know your opinions.

    I'm trying to keep it up but sometimes it's really hard ... and furthermore it could be harder because I'm going in australia ( no home, no work so perhaps not really so much time as if I want to...
    First improvement : I can finish my work O.O ( almost )
    Anyway thanks , your reaction is really appreciated

    Your stuff is so impressive! Love it all .. oh and I also have the same problem .. I cant focus on one piece till its finished .. I start new once and drop them like the one before and over and over again ..

    .. anyway keep on what you are doing, because it is great!

    Ehy Laurelin, really good suff here! Great inspiration from this life studies. If I can give you a advice is just to focus on basic structure before starting with the finish drawing. I think your technique is more than good and adding just a little work on building the big form (like comic artist usually do for ex) would give great consistance and beauty to the final result

    Wow, you have some really good understanding of faces and expressions! I really love the texture in your traditional ones, and your digital ones are coming along great too! May I suggest trying your hand at some gesture studies and full-body drawings? If you could transfer the emotion in your portraits to full bodies, it would be crazy!

    (Also, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!)

    Salut Laurlineparis, j'aime beaucoup le paysage que tu as réalisé c'est vrai que le plus difficile parfois c'est les détails mais a force de pratiquer les illustrations tu verras plein d'amélioration, j'ai le même problème parfois, en tout cas ton sketchbook est sympa, bonne continuation.

    Laurlineparis Hi, I love the landscape that you realized it's true that sometimes it is more difficult details but strength to practice the illustrations you will see lots of improvement, I have the same problem sometimes, in anyway your sketchbook is nice, good luck.


    Sorry I do not speak English, I understand a little
