Kirstyor's Sketchbook and other things
Hey, I'm new to this so let me know if I'm doing something wrong.
I'm 18 and live in England, and am currently doing a two year art course.
At the moment I'm aiming to be a concept artist for games/animation/comics/whatever you've got. My weaknesses are choosing the right colours, landscapes, proportion and creature design so I hope to develop in those ways over time.
Feedback is, of course, welcome!

Good start! I like line weight in your sketches, and kinda block ish looks of your first portrait. Its form that's important not the shape. Stick with form, and your skills will grow up pretty fast.
Keep it up!

Thank you! I won't lie, I did have to look up what form was haha but that's very useful. I did another portrait now that my new tablet's arrived and I tried to focus on the form using a skull as a reference occasionally:
I had to use the transform tool a bit in the beginning, but I feel like this went better than my last attempt some time last year :

I guess I accidentally deleted one of the posts? It was just some hands and poses
And today I sketched some wolves, just wanted to see where I was at with animals since I haven't drawn them in a while.

Some more practise on Quickposes, faces are way more hard to draw in 60 seconds than I thought.
Started a tiny obsession with drawing sphynx cats... (used a ref for everything apart from the cat the looking up)
Refs used on the page on the right.
No refs used, all drawn on the bus which is why they're so shaky.

Love the use of lines in the shading of that cat!! And the gestural inked hands.

Thank you! It's my inpatient rushing technique ha.
Just spent about two hours doing some shadow studies
These were 60 seconds each.
120 seconds, apart from the two on the end that were maybe 5 minutes?
And then some attempts at facial expressions. Refs used for all of em.
EDIT: Forgot about some uh, monster/creature/spirit/thing sketches I did the other day, without refs:

Cool stuff! I love your lines, they're free and natural. It's the kind of feel I try to give mine as well. Good luck and keep going!
Shoulder to the wheel, my friend!
My sketchbook - Harsh critique always welcome!

Some more poses, fighting ones this time.
I was messing with layers and skin colour but I definitely overworked it. I used the black and white to colour method, I'll keep trying other ways.
