    dits and dats

    Hi. I'm female, 22, Sweden. Been painting and drawing for a couple years. Completely self taught. Trying to go back to the basics and get a more solid foundation to keep building on. I like colour a lot, and oils better than acrylics. I dabble in Photoshop and haven't properly learned how to use Painter yet. I like Stargate, books and World of Warcraft.

    Here are some examples of stuff I've made the past couple years, oldest first:

    hey, popping your sketchbook cherry!

    I see a lot of promise here. My biggest advice is to do a lot of anatomy studies. Practice, practice, practice. And of course, show us more work, as much as you can.

    Good so far! Now just keep going! Don't worry about "not having a style". Style, when imposed, inhibits artistic growth. Just let your style grow as you do.
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    @ Dose206: That's great advice. I'm trying to do just that, but I've no literature at my disposal and have to make do with what I find online.. I think at least some live art classes would help, but oh well!

    @ skunk257: Thanks!

    @ Seedling: I'll try to remember that.


    On to some sketches.. Lots of crap but here we go:

    And a self portrait.. The likeness is ok, but I screwed up the eyes/nose and I made myself look 10 years older.. Great going there.

    @ AdamDillabo: Indeed it is. Having no babies in the near to look at for reference, I pretty much guessed how it would look.. Maybe it should be chubbier?

    Transition from Art Critic to Artiste - Diligence, that's all I need.

    I just installed Painter IX and am experimenting happily with it. More colourful crap to come soon.

    Yeah - I do that too much, I know.. Pretty good at not doing it with a pencil, but I gotta grab my tablet pen too hard.. No excuses! I'll do better.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks Max! I've actually been working on some of that, but my scanner isnt cooperating so for the moment I'm restricted to posting what I do on my computer.

    Here we go, random colouring doodle. Not very happy with the top one, its too flat compared to the other two. Might do something fun with these colour schemes.

    Er - why are they showing up in my posts and as attachments all of a sudden? This isnt good.
