Hello and welcome to my sketchbook!
= D My name is Rebecca and I am currently 21 and living in Southern California! I have been drawing all my life, but I have only recently started to take it pretty seriously. I want to improve so here I am!
Any comments or critiques are defiantly appreciated! Thank you! = )
I really like the sketches in your recent post. The two portraits are really lovely. The perspective in your still life seems a little off though. The shoe and sock look like they're tilted to far forward...
First off, really great stuff. You have an amazing ability so far. That first portrait is well done. I do see a bit of a need to learn values and light a bit more... the cheeks of the girl in the portrait aren't showing light properly; same with the apple.
You are pretty far down the road, though. You have a really good grasp on form so far and your lines are great.
Thanks so much for the input! I had a pretty hard time with the perspective on that still life painting. Obviously something I need to really sit down and put in some hours of drawing towards and well as with light as shade. Looking forward to doing it here = )
Here's some more stuff I've been working on. Something I started today for fun, some contour hands and foreshortening, a few self portraits, and my boyfriend.
Srry about the quality of the last two

Hi Kittens :-)
Well, no critics at my level on your drawings except ... wow ! I really like your portraits, except maybe the guy one. For some reason the chest feels ok but the face looks flat.
Your "comic like" drawing look pretty solid too.
Thanks Cornu! = )
So here's an little bit of an update. Been doing a of drawing lately but most of it is not really worth posting.
First here's an update of a piece that I feel like I've been working on for FOREVER...thanks to everyone helping me out in the critique center! = )
Next is an assignment for an Illustration class I'm currently taking.
and the last is just some boring still life =P
I love the ants spraying the little people. Sometimes I think the ants are out to get us, and we deserve it.
lol @ the ant spraying people
when you think about it, it's so sad
Thought I'd post the finished version of this, not much differently from the one before. And here is the next project I'm working on : Leo just in sketch stage right now, trying to get some input from the critique section right now = p
Alright well here is the finished Leo piece both inked and colored. I like the ink...I don't know how I feel about the colored version I don't think the colors are really working but I don't or well didn't really know how to fix it. Or I guess I just didn't want to start over and over and over again heh. I need the practice though I guess.
Thanks Sylph and Cado!
Nice anatomy studies, naming the parts is not always necessary, believe i've tried that method, keep it up!!
Thanks Sand and Caco! = )
More quick sketches and an assignment from class...political cartoon. I've never really cared much for political cartoons but this one was actaully pretty fun to draw = )
I guess this is a new piece I decided to start tonight, despite having massive amounts already of art homework...haha o well I was feeling inspired and decided to go with it.
I have been trying to achieve this view of the face in perspective so many times and failed. I'm not sure if it's really working or not? I am really trying to block it out but it's still confusing to me. Anyways...
I am quite sure that its working for you. I think all those anatomy studies and classes youre doing is having quite the positive impact =)
Wish I could take more drawing classes *sigh*
