    The SketchBrooke

    Howdy people! I've been a lurker in the artist community for ages. Over the years I have been terrified of showing anyone my work. I never feel good enough no matter what I do or how much I improve.
    So I have decided: Today's the day. Even though I am still terrified and don't feel good enough I'm going to share some doodles and studies I've done over the past few weeks that I don't completely hate. I'll try to update as regularly as I can make myself.

    Welcome to ConceptArt, and good on you to work up the courage to do this - waiting until one "feels ready" generally results in waiting forever

    I know it can be very hard to build up the courage to show your work to other people, yes. I'm glad you did it.

    Good studies up there. Shows you know your perspective and form rendering.

    Keep'em coming!
    Is this a sketchbook? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I like that you're doing construction of the figure, but you need to do that on the faces as well - you've learnt a lot of short hand ways of drawing the features, not learn the construction so they don't all look the same.

    @Blackspot Thank you! Also: you're so right. Thanks for pointing that out to me, I mostly draw cartoony things and knew I had a problem with same-face. But I didn't realize just how much shorthand I've picked up.

    So yesterday and today when I found a moment I did a few studies of head structure and individual features. A few of them came out a little cartoonier than I would've liked, but that's life.Will do more and upload here when I can!

    No studies yesterday, but since it's mermay and I just saw infinity war I decided to do Mantis as a mermaid. Hopefully I can keep up with mermay and do a different marvel character as a merm everyday!

    Nice studies going on here Brooke! You should observe the knee area more carefully when drawing legs. They are not two sausage shapes stacked on each other.
