Thread: Lily's sketchbook!
June 14th, 2014 #1
Welcome to my sketchbook, feel free to comment and give feedback! I'd love to grow as an artist and I figured the only way to do so is to get some new perspectives!
My biggest concern is that I still haven't found my own style, and it feels like if anyone where to look through my art books it would look like a compilation of works by different artists... So my main goal is to be more consistent, yet still be diverse in my works.
The drawing above is from late 2012, called "Dinner for Daddy Deerest".
Made as a challenge to anon whom asked if I could draw something “cool, creepy and weird”.
Even though it's "old", I still don't feel like I've made much progress since, and I don't feel like I've been able to draw something with so much story to it ever since ):
Other drawings from 2012 - 2013:

Female version of Peter Pan.
One of my recent digital drawings. Last time I drew and finished a digital drawing was years ago, so I'm glad I were able to push myself to finish this.
And the more recent works:
a quick sketch
Part of a Zodiac-project and the star signs "compatibility".
Inspired by "I'm Aquarius" by Metronomy

Great start! Your faces look amazing! As for finding your art style, Dont worry about it, Focusing on gestures or figure studies or taking inspiration from your favorite artists can be a great way to improve and possibly find that "style" we're all looking for!

@Jhetzul Thank you! I definitely should do more figure drawings and studies, so thanks for both the tips and the comment!
And now a good example of me finishing stuff just to be "finished".
I turned this into a friggen mess with lots of words when I should've kept it simple and clean.

Forcing myself to draw.

Great start to your sketchbook!
There are some strong pieces here with even stronger messages, its nice to see.
Your already heading towards a very cool style of your own. Though I dont think a style can be forced, it will come naturally with time.
So keep up the good work

I love the slightly rendered creepy looking style! The only thing is that I think your characters look extremely stiff like how a barbie doll would look. I think Learning some basic anatomy and finding the right curves would really unstiffin your figures!

@Mothman and @Uyeno thank you both so much for the feedback! I know, they look very stiff indeed! I have gotten into a bad habit of using photo shoots as references - they kind where they stand straight like mannequins, which is a really dreadful habit, haha. I'm definitely going to spend more time practicing different poses!
Too bad the next drawing looks just as stiff (even stiffer I'd say) haha.
