    Cow Ara's Sketchbook

    Hi, I'm new. I study graphic design at Art Center and am interested in Illustration. Obviously I have a ways to go but that's why I'm here: to learn. I've been drawing seriously for about a year now. Please critique my work 'til death if you see fit. I'm open to all comments and concerns.

    Sketch and watercolor experiment all drawn from life:

    More recent ps painting and sketch below (all from imagination):

    Anatomically incorrect (too narrow compared to ref):

    Drawn from a small 1 inch photo ref:

    SP:

    So..what do you think? I'll keep adding as I scan some more.

    i really like the, scribblyness, i guess, of the wolf.

    the hand studies are nice, but theres something wrong with the fingers, cant put a finger on it though...(sorry bad pun )

    It looks like you can already draw pretty well. I hope you get better. I don't believe the world is willing to do anything for me.

    i think its just that you got tired on that last one. i know how it is when you are so focused on one part of a picture, that by the time you get to the rest its like, ugh.

    that's true, but sometimes (for some strange reason) i like to keep my stuff partly unfinished. i don't really know why but I kind of like it that way.

    Holy crap this stuff rocks. I love the pic of the fat guy lol your style and coloring is awesome it makes me feel good inside (it's hard to explain) I dont feel depressed when i look this compared to some of the art i see in real life from people around me and sometimes in here. I love it i can tell your a joyful person
