    Allie's Sketchbook -- Round 2

    Hello! This is the second time I've created a sketchbook this week because somehow I completely messed up the first one >.< I think I've got a handle on how to work this site now, haha.

    So anyway, as I said in my last sketchbook, I've lurked here on CA for awhile now. I finally decided to start a sketchbook to help keep me motivated to practice. Ive been drawing for about 3 years but almost completely traditional. I have just recently started to dip my toes into digital art and I definitely have lots of improving to do. My main end goal is to develop my own style and eventually in the far future be able to create a comic of a story I've had for awhile.

    I'd love some crits and comments and definitely advice about what I can do to improve. I've never had any training at all so I don't really know what I'm doing >.<

    Leg studies from this morning. Going to do 50 sketches of each section of the body to try and improve my super inconsistent anatomy skills. Legs are so hard for me

    Decided to try out Sketchbook Pro on my iPad. I found it very difficult because there was a bit of a lag in between when I would move my stylus across the screen and when a mark would actually show up -- a very small lag, but enough to be annoying. I also had accuracy problems.

    For the first one I loosely followed along to a video done by CUBEBRUSH on youtube. Second one was with reference and I started it in Sketchbook Pro but then brought it over to Photoshop on my computer. Turned out pretty disastrous. I need to do some more value practice for sure.

    that's a good start! I'm learning too, so I know how it feels to get bored of your own designs XD, cubebrush is AMAZING, hehehe, I usually use his brush set for photoshop he is one of my biggest inspirations on caracter design, I tried to draw with a touch stylus too, you'll get used to it soon (I drew on my 5" phone with a 8mm wide touch soft stylus so... precise? not much, but you just get used to it), but I recently bought a samsung galaxy note pro 12,2; google it, it's perfect to draw when you're not in front of your pc and it comes with wacom technology integrated on the screen and with a wacom kind of stylus. 1024 levels of pressure, as the intuos models. It's like a cheap cintiq companion hybrid (and the pointer is at the same spot as the tip of the pen, so no weird feelings while drawing like that few mm between the cintiq tip and the pointer), you can stop by my sketchbook if you want, I've recently done some sketches with that tablet while I was at the US, I'll post 2 more later today

    nice work overall! liking it.

    Don't go for it, just go and enjoy your way, it will come

    @jimmixgs Thanks for checking out my stuff! I love your sketchbook as well! And thanks for the tips. I think I'm just going to stick with photoshop and my wacom for now


    Did this about a week ago. Took about 30 minutes. Not happy with it at all really but it was good practice.

    This is my first week of college so I haven't had much time to draw because I'm so busy trying to figure out everything with my schedule. I did this really really quickly, probably about 25 minutes. It's super messy and incomplete but I'm going to work on it more tomorrow. I'm not super happy with the design but I am happy with the coloration of the arms
