    I'm good people with good intentions and my hope is that if you are here, you are too. I'm so happy to be a part of this community and able to share my journey there and back again.

    Happy new sketchbook elinoree, welcome!
    Was really interesting to read your intro and get a feel for your background, I can relate to it in many ways. You are off to a great start here and I certainly look forward to seeing more. Lovely pencil work, especially like the expressive feeling of the person reading the book, post 2. Also dig the sun guardian

    From the figure drawing group a lil bit ago, we had a very pregnant lady. Very interesting and great to observe and draw.

    Thank you for the warm welcome. It does indeed seem like we have much in common, though you are clearly much further along than I in your journey. So inspiring!
    Heh, the person reading would be me being a creeper on the subway sketching away at some poor fellow commuter. Gotta love us weird artists sketching away on our work commutes.
    Love your work! And your story!

    I figure I might as well post one of my other contest entries along with some WIPs. I love those. The "assignments" help get my imagination sputtering.

    Yeah I always feel weird sketching people in public even though it is an essential part of being an artist. Was thinking of going out and offering free portraits just for the practice and to get more comfortable sketching in public. Who knows.

    Digging the last one, beautiful colours. Arabian fairy racer, me likes

    So I'm working on this disgusting fellow for this week's COW--Intellect Devourer.

    I figured since I'm going to have nightmares after staring at this guy all day, I'd share the wealth. Anybody else work on horror stuff, and wonder where the heck that came from?

    I discovered that painting brains have their own set of unique issues to solve: folded, but fat, and shiny. Also, such flesh tones... So all in all, after the creepathon, it's pretty good problem solving and practice.

    Hello! I love your sketchbook so far! Your creepy creature is awesome! I like the idea of the brain being the monster. Very nifty!

    I can't wait to see more from you!

    @LibraGrey, thanks for the love and kind words!

    Quick little something.
    Remember Peter Rabbit? Yeah, that guy's not happy with Mr. McGregor.

    That is one scary brain creature! Digging the Rabbit, feels otherworldly. A very fashionable jacket I might add

    Intellect Devourer. Learning more with every painting. Now, I'm really interested in translucence, and well...a lot of stuff.

    Thanks Bri, I was thinking that it would be fun to do creepy versions of innocent children's book story characters. It's definitely a good motor starter.

    So, I started the 100-day challenge today: anatomy and clothing. I figure I will post post them here as well. I wasn't too pumped about this challenge until I started gathering references and realized that it will be an opportunity to really look at all sorts of clothing really closely and see how it actually looks, like really and truly. It will also help in general for well, everything character design. If you think about it, as a character designer, you should also be a fluent fashion designer, and understand all sorts of things about clothing, not just folds; buttons, pockets, which way does that coat open up, buckles, bows, skirt lengths, pant types, helmets and hats galore, meanwhile noting how it moves and sits on the body, different kinds of bodies. Weeeee! Anyhow, you get the idea. We'll see how this challenge unfolds (pun intended.)

    Wish me luck!

    I also included a sketch I did for the Mad Hatter challenge, but started to paint it and am just really not digging it, so if I end up having a big chunk of time tomorrow or Friday, I may start over on that guy.
