My name is Amber and this is my sketchbook.
I've been lurking on CA since early 2004. I'm currently finishing
my last few classes for a Fine Arts Diploma (Oil Painting and Art
History this semester, woo!), and trying to get myself organized
to do some Freelance Illustration in the near future.
This SB is to organize and motivate my studies, as I work to improve.
Eventually my goal is to illustrate novel covers. Right now I'm focusing
on getting back to the basic principals and really strengthening my
weaknesses (which are many), especially in anatomy.
I started working on my pencil-work last week since I've been working
mainly on CG-related skills for the last year, and this is what I've got so far.
First my first self-portrait from life, 1 hour in openCanvas.
Next six are mostly playing around, and two life-ref.
Two value studies from online photo ref.
Bammes studies on knee.
Practice from mind.
Hand from life.
I plan on updating this as much as possible, as time permits,
between full-time work, classes, sleep, and of course, drawing
my damned fingers off. >:]
