Hello, welcome to my sketchbook!
I've been a lurker since 2012 and this site, specifically the sketchbooks have been a great source of inspiration. Lately my progress has become stagnant due to schoolwork and laziness and hopefully making this thread will be motivation to churn out more art.
I'm turning 16 in july and am waffling between getting a concept art/illustration job in the future. Critiques and feedback are very much appreciated!

I don't have a scanner (yet) so these are all taken by ipad cam. Mostly just boring stuff like studies from last month and a bit from this month. Sorry its so messy..I'll update regularly to avoid having to clump so many things together.
2nd pic (the one with the blue heads) are from imagination.
@Uyeno np! haha what a coincidence, and thank you
Linearted these girls yesteryesterday and finished painting them in a trance just a while ago also tried to do something a little different with each girl. Then did some quick environments (trying to get the feel) because I suck at those. It was a fun day
@Aya-Kun Thank you! Yeah Mucha's designs and aesthetic are just so good.
Stuff from yesterday: some figures about 2-3 mins each,a Sargent study, initially character sketches that I ended up spending too much time on and an environment where I tried applying some of the stuff learned the day before, though for some reason it kind of looks off.
@R-K Thank you for the feedback! And I will
Stuff from yesterday and today: WIP of another Sargent study, the head on my thumb, doodles from imagination and along with that imageset a portrait from last month that I forgot to add in my first post, and lastly some studies. Been drawing too much humans again, need to work more on environments and animals.
Finally doing some animals! Felt bad about them then drew 12 pages worth of 1 min speeds, most of them were disgusting but I got a bit more used to drawing with my elbow on the last few pages. Also a rushed Mucha thing for mother's day.
Hey man, these animals looks pretty cool - i like the bird next to the frog!keep it up!
@Sovietmade thank you
Bunch of studies from Bridgeman and Der Nackte Mensch, faces and figures from photos, and some from imagination (the whole page with the dragon)
@invinciblewombat That's great to hear thank you!

@Uyeno & Catghost Thank you for the kind comments, they are much appreciated
Some studies, and finished vers. of teen challenge 213.
Got sick earlier this week but now I'm better so here are some sketches. Got too excited so most of them are total chaos but I kind of like the stuffed look it gives. Also a page of leg studies, going to do more value studies later.
Ended up being I could do for today, wip of a turned into a color/value study instead of a value study though. Going to do pure values tomorrow for sure.
Eh looking value study ,some figure drawings and sketches
Sketches from the past few days, coloring them in was fun.
A bunch of mermaids I'll use to practice coloring soon, ended up really liking the one on the top right
Lineart wip and more school stuff
And lastly 50 1min figures, I'll try to do a lot more of them daily since my poses are pretty stiff. Gesture is hard.
I've also been running away from finishing those studies that were posted before..I'll get to finishing those soon.
