    ♥Somni's Sketchbook♥

    Hey guys, guess I'll post my intro here.

    Name's Carys, I'm a 17-year-old girl (har diddley) hoping to someday work as a concept artist. I'm currently working on a project of my own--a graphic novel. I scribble little thoughts and ideas constantly (but I'll keep those to myself in order to A) not scare you away and B) keep me out of a mental hospital ). I do daily anatomy studies and that's mainly what I'll be posting here, along with daily Oekaki chat speed-paintings and other random crap. Oh yes. Anatomy piccus are either referenced from others' sketches, photographs, people in real life, or done without reference... And yeah, they're all a bit stylized but I've had realism shoved down my throat for far too long--oooo, rebel. I'm mostly working on drawing bodies as I've focused on hands, feet, and faces for a long time.

    Critique the hell out of them. I'm here to improve.

    Oekaki done in Niko's P-Chat:

    the studies look reaaly nice to me, maybe you can post some of characters you've created as well? I find it can be a big jump trying to implement what I studied in anatomy to the figures I'm creating.

    Heey Carys! You know I love your art >.>
    I really like that last speedpaint, Sprite. It's really cool.
    That graphic novel of yours sounds really interesting, I've been thinking about making one too in the future.. when I can.

    Age: 5

    Catchphrases: No doubt; What the dealio?; What joo say 'bout my face?; Screw you; No, no, don't touch. No touchy.; You'll never get my weewee.; I'm but a wee sprite.

    Location at beginning of story: She lives alone in a treehouse on _____ Island, but often travels to a nearby city where she tries to get admitted into the Mental Hospital on a regular basis so that she can live with her friends, as she's never had a family.

    Smell: Heaven itself.

    Food: She refuses to eat anything over 20 calories because she thinks she's fat and is constantly trying to lose that extra pound.

    Grooming habits: Licks herself.

    If your character took over the world, what would be the first thing they do?: Change her name to Jigsaw and laugh manically.
    What is the first thing the character thinks when they wake up?: Hey, I didn't wet myself this time!
