    Shannon's sketchbook

    Okay, this is my first attempt at making this thing.

    I am a student at the Art Institute in Minnesota. I am going for animation.
    I sketch damn near everyday for atleast 30 minutes. Lately it has been ten times that since I'm in school and all...

    I would really like to know what you guys think... so here we go people!

    !st: 1st finished pen drawing (My favorite!)

    2nd: A lion drawn from the Como Zoo.

    3rd: A monochromatic semi-abstract tiger painting assignment

    4th: A drawing from a while ago

    And the rest I did for a practice portfolio in a portfolio foundations class.
    Enjoy!

    Good start on the sketchbook. I've fill mine mostly inthe last week in a half so I know the feeling of just starting. I like the leather feel to the pants on the figure drawing.

    Yeah, I noticed that right away. My friend said he looked like he had an anemic leg.
    Also, on the figure with leather, his chest looks a little squished and the arms look goofy...

    Well the pen one was worked on while I have a 4 hour break between classes on Mondays and Wednesdays... it took a couple weeks or so. But I only worked on it during my break on those days.
    The other one was done in a weekend. I started on it kind of late, so I was a little rushed. It was done with acrylic, and I am not a huge fan of acrylic. But it turned out okay I think.
    I will try to put up a better pic of it soon.

    okay, thanks

    i prefer to compare drawings to icecream
    1) sometimes it looks beautiful (like the children-icecreams that look like clowns )
    2) icecream is so good that i can never get enough, same with looking at drawings
    3) icecream = sweet, drawings = sweetness

    don't know what i'm blabbing about here
    point being: your drawings are neat

    i'm not that patient, i'm afraid to work on a drawing for a week
    the longest i ever worked on a drawing was on that dragon and that took me about an hour or so
    *bows* so i verymuch respect your work

    Great imagination!!

    Shannon,
    You got some wonderful sketches. I really like your imagination and the details. Your sense of shape works very well on your creatures/animals but lose some life on your figures. Figure drawing is more of a challenge to see the shapes. ONe thing that helped me grow faster was to draw sketch shapes in my sketchbook without thinking then look into the shape even if you have to turn your sketchbook upside down to see something then pull it out. Draw the detail into it. You will be amazed at what you will draw with little effort. It's a process I call reacting to the shapes which is different then starting a drawing with something in mind. Just thoughts. Keep up the good work.
    Thank you again for you comments on my work.

    hey, nice start.
    The kittens look nice and the tiger painting looks cool.
    The figures are looking good, just keep working at proportions.
    keep it up.
