Kirstenís Old Sketchbook consisting of mostly non-sketches
Hello, there. I've finally gotten the courage to post my own sketchbook. My name is Kirsten Zirngibl. I do a good bit of lurking and will be posting more.
I did a lot more art back around high school Freshman year-- Someone even told me that they think the best pieces of mine were from that time. Thinking that one "peaked" at that time is frustrating! :er:
I started to get busy with academics later in High School, and rarely had time for art. However, I made the decision to pursue it as a career, so I will start to work on it a lot more than I have in the past. Now that I'm out, I plan to start developing my skills again.
I will try to post my work in chronological order, starting from eighth grade (I have some interesting stuff from that time and earlier, but it's not in the computer). Sometimes I finished some of those pieces in the summer of that year-- it's not a perfect catagorizing system. After this large burst of works, I will post some of the things I'm currently working on, as well as some works-in-progress. I've always been really into portraying situations with a story in them, so I'm going to explain them. All of the ideas are my own.
I'll be describing the pieces in a list of captions that correspond with the attached images. You'll figure it out.
I'd also like to note that I lot of my work is pretty small in size. It's kind of different viewing certain sizes as if they had the same width as ones larger- not always sure if that's a good thing or not. I've provided dimensions, as well as some sections from the full file sizes.
I guess thus far (up to post 9), I have mostly completed pieces. As I said before, I will be posting incomplete ones as well.
Finally, I guess it's sort of hard to find consistency within my works- with me anyway. I've used so many mediums and a lot of different styles that it doesn't look like I have a real... direction, as an artist. I suppose it's because probably half of these are the result of some kind of school assignment. Almost all my assignments have been rather open-ended, but I still ended up doing something I might not have decided to do on my own. Perhaps you can help me out in finding my tendencies and some kind of consistency.
