Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
I decided to make a sketchbook to show my progress .
I am trying to improve so all critique is welcome since it helps me a lot. I am applying at college to study game art as I want to be able to get into the game industry in the future. I see a lot of people starting and wanting something like me are a bit older, but I know what I want and will work for it , as much as needed!
Moved first post to second as I went to change my thumb sometimes .
I switched to permanoobs to keep my sketchbook. I like CA, but I don't feel really home here and at permanoobs I got people who critisize me which helps me a lot for improving so I can take the right way. The actual reason I started a sketchbook. Here is the link to it if you are interested

I actually wanted to update yesterday night, but my internet didnt work =/. So here is my update of the past 2 days!
I was not sure if I should continue or stop on the dark knight, but maybe it was better to not tweak too long on him anymore, so I did some small parts where I didnt light or shadow enough. It's kinda finished now .
I also did a bunch of studies on 8 April. Since well it's good to do them!
I have a little weak spot for kittens I guess..
I also did 2 perspective studies. Maybe it is better to do block out parts. I will try it like that today.
I found those using google maps. It's a nice way to find a good place and do a study.
Yesterday I didn't do as much since I had to do some things. And a bit of lazy later in the evening. Bad bad me.
I did figure I prefer to do quickpose studies digitally. So I am going to continue that way.
I also have been working on this piece a bit more.
I'm sorry for such a big post again .

Welcome to CA sketchbooks I really like profile painting from first post, have really nice feel to it. As for color illustrations and enviro - start with something simpler first, do more studies (like still lifes) in b&w. Also check some tutorials on perspective and compo. And keep on drawing and posting
... I posted but it didnt post ..
@Betty86: Thanks a lot for your comment! The portrait of the girl was a study from a picture I found on quickposes. I think they have a lot of nice pictures. I am going to do a lot of studies and work on perspective this weekend. Sadly today I don't have the time, so this weekend, and I will post them . I also should do my illustrations more quick I think. Maybe not render this much, since it costs a lot of time and I make improvements while still working on them.
Well my pc crashed afterwards so it's probably that hehe. I just hope it will not send twice or something like that.
So yesterday I did quite a lot! Really I mean it, I did a lot. Well in my opinion. But the more I do the more motivation I get to do more. So it's good. But yeah this will cause a very long post again. My apologies in advance.
So the day started with a few poses. I ehmm did not feel like drawing poses so much =X.. Well one day less is alright I guess..
I also did some face studies and stuffs like that . I was studying also a bit from Burne Hogarth. Now I understand faces a lot more!
Some studies of legs, hand , feet.
Part of my messy desk. Kinda quit fast.. It ww\asn't interesting at all, I'm going to make some composition next time. Maybe some fruit. I love fruit.
A parfume bottle. I let my lamp shine on it and decided to draw. I'm quite happy with it. I love to draw the effects of light. But I have to learn to draw them without ref or an object. I kinda fail.
Some failed perspective and eviroment tries.. I'm gonna work on it! I will be able to make good ones! I know I can and will do it!
A little study. But I'm going to start this one over, maybe monday.
And I finished this one. I'm no longer gonna spend ages on one. I have my whole life later to do that if I want. Quick ones with good lightning will be my challange for the next months. When I'm better at composition and values it's time for peaces which I'm going to work long on!
It has been a weekend full of practise! All except friday, because I didn't really have time to do anything. Except for some stuff there is no need in posting. And kinda almost all I did this weekend was yesterday. I started drawing in the morning and actually stopped very very late which burned me out a little. Anyway a lot to post again !
Here's some gestures and such!
Some faces study. I feel like I'm getting a lot better with them.
What I actually planned to do a lot this weekend was perspective. I did work pretty much with it. Starting from small objects and reading some books, to some quick practices using google maps. I really love google maps now! Going to random cities and drawig them.
Here is a little homework assignment. We had to paint a plant or flower very big. I used watercolors and tried to experiment a little but with splatting a little .
And also soms stuffs from imagination.
Let the queen joker bring you happy dreams with her scaryness . Some friends think she's very scary so yeah xD.
Now I am going to doodle a little since I haven't really be freely doodling with a pen in a while. Need to give myself some ideas for when I make something digital. Now I am like "I don't know what to paint" xD.
Okay this I call really lazy. But I didn't really have so much time. Not gonna have that much time next few days as well. It's almost Easter and a party so yeah .. Gonna work a lot after Haha!
So what I did since Sunday!
Gestures of course. Not gonna skip those!
I have some trouble with abs. So working a bit on those.
Bit of perspective.. Yeah...
Sketches and doodles. Some at school cuz it was very boring and we didn't really do anything. Others just in my bed at times I didnt want to do anything else. And some ps doodles. Tried to create some better compositions. I'm maybe going to continue with some of them. It's always good to make ideas.
Here's Olaf! =X
Some car studies from pics.
And well I designed a bit of a fantasy horse. I tried to make him a little holy like. )
I'm also doing the composition 1.1
I'm updating this now since I dont like posting old stuff . It's a very small update but I have not been doing so much these days, but I surely will do more after Easter, we celebrate it a bit more so yeah. Can't just lock myself up for drawing.
I have started a bit of a more time consuming painting, a bit of fun inbetween studies and I need to make some completely finished pieces which are not studies. Here's the process till now.
Also a few studies.
Thats it for now.
Some update. I think I will do a bit less studies and just draw. I will of course do studies. Just not only studies. I feel less creative when only doing them. It's harder to get ideas. Even though I started to enjoy doing the studies. I want to learn and know more. But my school admissions are quiet near and I can't only show studies.
I was working on the painting but I decided to quit it. I'm not happy with it, I'll just keep it somewhere just in case I ever want to do anything with it hehe.
And just a doodle page of doodles.
I found some old colored paper. But ehmm yeah it's too smooth for normal drawing =/. I will get some better ones soon. Maybe just a package or something. I want to use white pencil or chalk on it. I had a sketchbook which I colored with coffee. The pages were so nice, but in a week some fungus appeared !
Just a little what I did today. I've been slacking.
Some gestures from the movie Sucker Punch. I feel it's better to draw gestures from a moving image. It feels more natural to understand a pose than from a photograph.
Ehmm a Kitsune, just for fun.
That's it. And just a sketchy painting I started on.
Little update, I started working on an admission assignment but it kinda failed miserably, I'm not even gonna post it! Starting over tomorrow. And here are some other things I've been doing .
I decided to challange myself a little. Since I dont draw and sketch architecture often, to design something out of the shape of every letter from the alphabet. This is what I got so far.
Here's a tank from imagination
At least my mom got me an early early birthday gift of the Faber Castell color pencils . I did a little study using them.
