Ok I'm starting up one of these Sketchbooks... I wasn't real sure what they are supposed to be, but looking through some I guess its pretty much a free-for-all.
A little about myself.... my name is Shannon and I currently live in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. I am originally from Michigan and have lived in Boston, Chicago, St. Louis and even a short stint in Milan, Italy. I design women's footwear for a living (well somebody has to do it! LOL!). When I was young I had dreams of being an animator (2D, 3D barely existed then. I'm old.) or work for Marvel, obviously neither happened. I'm 100% self-taught, and after nearly 20 years of drawing I still suck at hands. Haha!
I prefer to draw Black-Line art.... cartoon/comic style. I constantly commit Artistic Treachery by referencing anatomy and poses from... *gasp* stock photos! No I'm not ashamed of it and yes I am aware that my proportions are off sometimes.
I really need to work on drawing Males, body-type variations in my characters and creating my own environments rather than using photo backgrounds for everything. Honestly my architectural and horizon line perspective skills are pretty non-existent. Its all those years I spent drawings "floating" pin-up girls... LOL!
Anyway... enough rambling... here is some art.
