    Vanessa's sketchbook

    I'm starting this thread hopping that it will come in hand for other people help me to evaluate my work and my own progress. I'm still not sure about which approach works better for me, and i still have a really long road in the art of sketching, so hopefully this will help me.

    These were done with reference. I do know that the only good thing about the skin color and it's blending, but i am proud of them.

    So i was trying to make a good drawing of this pokemon deoxys. I was quite disapointed with the first ones, as they looked too plain for me, so i did several more scketchs until i got something that made me happy.

    Hi Vanessa. I like the mix of studies and illustrations I'm seeing here. My advice would be to really work on perspective and constructive skills. Learn how to construct your figures and faces even more. Loomis, Bridgman, Bammes, Hogarth, Vilppu- are all good resources for figure construction. I also think it's very important to keep doing your illustrations and stuff from your head as well to keep your mind learning and growing. Have fun and work hard!

    Cheers.

    Oh my god, thanks so much for the comment!!!! I`ve already read Loomis and Hogarth, but had never heard of any of the others. I`m trying to improve my sketchs, as i have i really hard time getting the idea out of my head and putting it on the paper, but i`m also trying to learn everything i can(composition, story telling, color theory...) but later on i`m gonna focus on these aspects for sure!!
    Thanks so much for the feedback again !!

    Still with a lot of mistakes on the figure construction and the background drawing, but what is irritating me the most is that a still can`t put my ideas or tell the story trought the illustration...still have a looooooong path ahead @.@

    So, tried to make a portrait without the line scketch. The result is almost chaotic. Does not lie alike the reference at all ( face too short, nose to big, eyes and mouth on wrong position...urgh)

    again, does not look like the model(the mouth and eyes are uncorrected placed, and his face should be finer). Made a bad choice of pallets, so i had to change the background at the end.

    Is the dude from post #22 Clement Chabernaud? I love fashion models, I always get excited when I see them. xD

    Your painting is better than your drawing, so put additional energy in improving your drawings. Pick a topic and focus on it for a month or so to give yourself time to let the information sink in. As Grumpysaur said, constructive anatomy would take you a long way with your current skill set, so consider studying that first, especially since it seems you enjoy painting people.

    Sorry, but it is not him >.<
    Focuses on drawing and concept, got it. I have actually been avoiding anatomy because i am always getting so frustrated with it all the time . But i guess there is no easy path anyway u.u.

    So, a lot,lot lot of mistakes. Not even sure where to start from. Probably concept and composition, i liked the idea but i didn`t liked the table and the things on top. I liked the smoke and the characters poses, but only that.
