    Cornucopia's sketchbook

    Hello!
    I love to draw.
    Since I was small, I loved to draw. Drawing was there throughout my childhood, adolescence, beautiful and sad life moments. Sometimes I had time, and drew a lot, and sometimes circumstances forced me to take long pauses.
    Whichever the case was, I tried to maintain this skill however I knew.
    Unfortunately, not all of us got the chance in life to become art students, but those who had the will to carry on, tried to develop the skills on their own. Well, in short, that's what happened to me.
    I registered here ages ago, but never had the courage to open my sketchbook and just post. Thanks to my dear, creative and very motivating friend I followed her footsteps and broke the barrier.

    So here we are. I will post some of my recent, and some of my older work, just for the start. Every advice is welcome, and I will be thankful for any of your support.
    Once again, thanks to my friend (Qupo) for pushing us forward! =)

    Those are really good. I love the lamp, it really gives off light. The pole dancer really seems to be catched in movement, something I always find hard to do. Your super heroes are solid too. Thanks for sharing them with us.

    Advise? hmm people always say to me I have to study, you know Loomis and environments. So I can tell you that, but... nah... my advise is just to have fun in what you are doing. It doesnot really matter what other people think as long as you are happy with the results. If you are not happy... then studie.

    I like your work so far. Your lines are smooth and you seem to have a great grasp on foundations, especially with figures. I think you can take it a step further and practice with textures, if you'd like to. I think of them as more of a stylistic decision so I personally don't use them often, but I'd like to see how you can handle the material of the kimono, habit, and of your creatures' scales and furs. It's completely up to you, though!

    I've got to ask, are all of these just from imagination? Either way, you're really good at transferring ideas, which is an obstacle that I have. Do you have a goal with your art or is this just a passionate hobby for now?

    Thank you very much, to both of you.
    Yes, it is in my practicing schedule to work with textures, I will post some when the time comes.
    I use imagination as my main source of training, and yes, it is very hard transferring images from the head to the paper. Mostly because in the beginning you can't see the idea clearly, but with practice it gets less and less blurry, so you can practically "scan" the image from your imagination and "print" it to the paper/tablet.
    Maybe the best way to begin is to draw some basic shapes which you can see, then look for the image by adding the lines, over and over again, until you find it.

    Most of the works here are mine, some of the works are Final Fantasy fanarts and models for practice. I have a goal and many projects I plan to work on, but this will take some time to accomplish.

    Yeah, sometimes more, sometimes less. Depends.

    Great sketchbook! I see that you're a fan of Final Fantasy. I'm a massive fan of Final Fantasy, particularly FF7-FFX. They're a big influence on my art. As for your sketches, maybe try varying the line weights a bit more?
