    Concepts, Characters, Studies and Tears (Crit Welcome)

    Hello and welcome! I'm going to write a little bit about myself and my art journey. Feel free to read it or skip to my drawings.

    My name is Kiera! I'm currently finishing up a BA in Animation at a public university; nothing too fancy. I'm sort of in a rut right now where I realize, as I'm nearing graduation, that my skill level and time management aren't where I want them to be. These thoughts plague me more than they ever have, to the point that it affects my everyday life. In a way, it's holding me back from drawing more and improving, because I'm scared that any piece I start won't turn out how I want it to look. To say the least, it's a huge ongoing struggle for me to overcome my art-related anxiety. But right now I have two goals set for myself: to be less anxious about drawing (and be more accepting of the outcomes) and to be a happier artist. I know deep in my heart that this is the right path for me, so I intend to devote all my strength towards becoming a better artist, and in that, becoming a stronger person.

    Sorry if that was too self-indulgent. But it's something that weighs on me so heavily that I feel it needed to be said.

    Anyway, enjoy the art!

    Hey guys!! It's been..... over 2 years since I last posted (LMAO), but art has been on my mind a lot, so I took the opportunity to get more use out of my ConceptArt account. Here's some more figure drawings that I've done recently.

    I like how your sketches are loose and yet descriptive. That's something I've been trying to achieve in my work.

    Great job!
