Hi, I'm Stephanie, a 24 year old trying to get into art school for industrial design.
Just restarting this after finally ending my military service. Hopefully I will find more time for art now.

Here are some more, I wasn't sure if posting multiple pictures using the attachment manager in the first post would work or not, so I am just going to do two separate posts.
If anyone has any advice on using coloured pencils, I would SUPER appreciate it, I can't seem to get the hang of them.
Just some silly doodles for today, Hopefully I can get some pictures of the portfolio I'm submitting for college later this week. So much stress!
I see that you have some very interesting concepts that you are trying to work with, and that is awesome! Inspiration is what an artists needs to continue working hard.
I would recommend picking up some anatomy books and studying them, drawing page after page of what you see and really learn to understand where all of the bones and muscles go. A good book in my opinion is Anatomy for the Artist by Sarah Simblet.
Telephonoscope: Thank you so much for the suggestions! I'm really glad you like what I have idea wise.
So I took some photos of my portfolio submissions. Sorry the lighting is terrible...I really wish I had a scanner they fit on. I'll be posting the rest later.
And also, I made a little plush guy. I love toys and really wanna get into toy design as my bachelors program at FIT, right now I'm just aiming for the AAS in Illustration, but hopefully I'll get really good at the plushes and I can use some for a portfolio for toy design, I think that'd be super cool. I named him Kookoo because he reminds me of a bird. Making him made me realize I'm not terribly good at sewing anymore, I'm gonna practice something fierce!
So here are some more, the other pieces aren't finished yet and I'm running out of time...Ugh... But those are mostly still lifes and super boring anyway.
The first image is a backpack, I'm not a fan of how it turned out...
As usual, any critiques are wildly appreciated!
Some random studies.

New sketchbook page. I was also accepted into Wentworth's Industrial Design program!
Gotta start drawing more. Tendonitis be damned!
And I still don't have my scanner hooked up.... I should have taken the photo earlier in natural light....
Please bare with me until I find the cable for my scanner. I used natural light this time and it doesn't look much better.
Just some lip studies.

Hey Sand1941! Keep up the practice! If I could help in anyway, try to study Andrew Loomis books on the figure&anatomy, you gotta know the rules before you can bend them =]. Keep up the life studies! ^_^
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
Hey V3T, Thanks!
They took down the saveloomis cite, do you know of another link to his books? I'm definitely goiing to keep doing more life drawing though, I really need it.
Also, did a pretty quick cartoonish self portrait, I can see a bunch of stuff wrong with it, such as the weirdness of the shoulder. Maybe I'll do a real one eventually.

Some quick sketches of other students in the cafeteria. I tried getting my scanner to work with my laptop, but it says they're incompatible, I guess I need a 32 bit system but I have the 64 bit window 8 system? does anyone have any ideas about a work around beyond buying a new scanner? I don't have money for that. The scanner itself is a Cannon LideScan 100, I know, it's ancient, but it still worked last time I used it...
I'm really bad about updating in here, I'll try to be better...
Here is some more recent stuff:
