Woah, awesome works you've got there! 8D
You style is incredible and the studies (especially the last hands) are very cool looking, too! (Yay for trueform!Castiel and the trenchcoat sketch)
Woah, that study chart's a bloody good idea, at this case it's really going to cause a trend. I'll have to make myself one too. With credit to you, of course. I see some nice ideas bouncing around in your sketches too. I'd love to see you take them concepts and put the intoa fully fleshed finished picture, right now they remind me of idea thumbnails, so it seems the natural course of action.
Anways, keep up the good work!
@Heyriel *blushes* you flatter me!
@Naidy i plan to finish some of them when i come back from Greece (i'm leaving the day after tomorrow) in a week :3
@Tef yeah, i like digital more because i can see my work surface better. it's easier for me to come up with better composition and all that. maybe if i had an easel it would come as easy irl too xD
@gmc9987 ah, thank you! i can't believe i progressed, but if you say so i shall believe you!
not much, just some imagination sketches...
some character face sketches in different styles:
some idea thumbnails:
digital wips (both commissions):
a rune gun, very simple, for an occultist friend:
i didn't have time for anything else because packing, and all that!
i'm back from greece. wasn't all it was cracked up to be, but i had fun. swam so much i fear i might get mold soon. got drunk on the last night and realised liquor tastes foul and that i'm a too-honest-drunk.
didn't draw much, just doodled with no regard for anything
i will post later tonight some furniture studies - thank god for ikea catalogues, amirite?-, as well as some anatomy studies
trying something new...some kind of architecture drawing...still a newb at those, but i figure that if i take it slow i might end up with something slightly cartoonish but understandable...?
logos i did for a friend just after i come back
he settled for number 3
number 1 was done after what he sketched for me as a guideline
woot, the forums are back!
so pretty and shiny! i love the new interface!
i'll upload the sketchbook pages tomorrow when i have good daylight
for now, some digital works :3 !!!
in the pearls and pleasure/beads of pleasure series
2 and 3
trying out drawing anime again
progress on another comission
a commission for some guy on deviantart
i've tried some watercolours, can't wait to post'em up and do some more!
I really like how there's already some improvement throughout the thread -nodnod- Your anatomy is really good and all, but to be honest I really love your concept drawings (the one with the wonky limbs and stuff) because there's something very expressive about those!
As for your architectural attempt, the building is really pretty but I definitely recommend adding a vanishing point if you're going to have the little roof-thing of the bottom door come out like that. It'll help you place other elements of the building too.
Keep up the good work!
there iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis? *shiny eyes* i thought i was at a standstill and getting frustrated xD
i love them too, tbh, because i feel i am more expressive in them, not giving a fuck about anatomy and the like lets me express stuff more emotionally i guess
will do! thank you! :3
some old sketches that i decided to watercolour
sloth - 1/7 deadly sins -
studies - ikea pillows, drapery, a room
had some fun with pens and coloured pencils, haven't used those in a while :3
i read some loomis
and put them on a used piece of paper
did some wiggly limbed concepts
tried to re-do a character i've had since i was like 14
amused my boyfriend
Thanks for your comment on my sketchbook.
Your work is a lot of fun to look at, some of the full colour illustrations have a nice feel to them, almost like fashion style illustration. I would say to do more life studies if you wish to improve, but also don't stop drawing from imagination. Best of luck

Yes, totally! I think everyone improves from the helpful crit on this forum :]
It looks like you did those watercolors on something like regular printer paper. I know you're coloring old sketches but I think you should invest in some watercolor paper to at least play around in :] You'll see a big difference! You'll have total control over your colors, too, and you won't get those random dark spots that you can't control '-'
Don't be afraid to layer colors, either. It adds a lot of richness to it. That's another reason why I'm recommending watercolor paper because it can hold all those layers! (If you already have watercolor paper, then.. use it! Hehe)
Your concepts are really really cool! I love your sketches. "Messy and dirty" ones are the best, they have the most character!
Thanks for the comment on my sb, by the way ^^
@black-swan thank you! now that i'm in college i'll have plenty of opportunities to do so!
@letsgopangolin i just bought some watercolour paper, as per your advice!
i thought my sketchbook paper was good for them too, but seems i was wrong (i use a derwent sketchbook) xD
so college just started, and i am very excited for my first year there! my teachers are awesome, and the courses very interesting. i've also picked up writing again, and thus dwelved into he world of words and neglected my drawing a bit. no matter, back on track with semi-daily updates from now on :3
tegaki e doodles:
a small illustration
sketchbook pages (one of them has some studies from life i did before my friends arrived)
i've been drawing flowers
i quite enjoy it
there's this subreddit on reddit.com specially for people who ask nicely of people to draw some stuff for them
and i filled a few requests:
a guy's family crest
an electrical circuit in the shape of a fleur de lis
i also have some doodles in my note thingies from college
but i'll upload those later
oops forgot some of the sketchbook pages
i really need to organize where i paste these things
college time doodles
the schedule is still hectic, am still struggling to balance school, social life, writing and drawing. but i will, in time
it's one of those rare periods in life when i'm happy
despite a break up, and a new relationship blooming...i seem to be struggling emotionally much less.
i guess this shows in my drawings because i've stopped being so anal retentive about them
and just drew
portrait i did of my boyfriend two weeks or so ago for our 2 month anniversary
the hair is my favourite part
start of the winter hols...finally free to draw some stuff!
ALSO MY BOYFRIEND GOT ME A TABLET FOR CHRISTMAS AJKFDHAKJFKAGFKAJFBKAFGB
a beautiful Bamboo Fun Pen&Touch I came.
i'll post some drawings soon
a quick study of someone's nude photo on reddit
tegaki e doodles whose concept i will expand tomorrow in photoshop
wip of my character nina with some...stuff:
continuing the wip:
i am really proud of the hands
how come every time i poof out of the art scene for a bit i come back drawing hands better?
what an oddity
i first wanted to paint it like this
but it feels awkward to do so if the figure is stylized so cg it will be

first batch of chibi comissions
i..i have a confessions guys
i....i...I ENJOY DRAWING CUTESY ANIME SHIT
i decided to finish this properly, shading and all, and not just flats
my beloved nina
another thing i want to finish. i wanted to leave the flat textured parts alone, but then decided otherwise after i finished nina
i also have sketchbook pages with rough sketches and gestures, but i'll post them tomorrow when the light is better because lazy
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and linking me to that video tutorial. It's very helpful.
Wow, CA has had a complete overhaul! Love it
Haven't had access to the site till now for some reason, I think it was down for just me...idk.
Will post sketchbook pages later, for now, digital arts
a re-do of an old concept from when i first started doing digital (and the old version near it):
some cutesy anime stuff:
what i'm working on right now:
Very nice but try to sketch more human figures, if you dont have model you can use mirror and sketch yourself. Sometimes you can sketch something from photo but its better to sketch something from real.
I will, thank you!
I have some body image issues, so sketching from a mirror image of myself would probably not send me into a mental happy place... >_>
But I'll start figure drawing at least once or twice a week when I catch free time!
the forums kept giving me a 404 error this past month, and i thought they were long since dead i was very sad.
and then the almighty google saved me and told me the url changed. herp derp.
i started commission work. 5$ for most stuff, and I think my skill level is worth that, but I don't think i should charge more.
anyway, latest sketches and work (warning, dump!)
p.s. i made myself a sketchbook, coptic stitch style. the ones at the art stores are too fucking expensive, they can go to hell D: my production rates skyrocketed once i made myself a proper sb, and not drew on flying paper. odd.
DIGITAL SKETCHES FOR COMMISSIONS:
characters commissioned on deviantart:
portrait comissioned on fiverr:
character design commissioned for a game (a sketch up there is for the same thing, too):
original stuff (MY PRECIOUSSS) :
& a wip of my lovely Bianca :
summer holidays are coming soon, which means TIME TO DO STUDIES BECAUSE I HAVE TIIIIIIME LAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
the commission i did all of those thumbs for is finally finished...
thanks for the advice! yeah, i kinda lack in the studies department, mainly because i've had so little time i rather had spend it getting out ideas and the like and doing what i love - ie drawing like a derp xD summertime brings free time tho, and studies will follow!
speaking of studies...
some thumbnails...will probably at least tegaki e them later
can't remember if i uploaded these two or not...
ugh finally cA has no problems D;
i couldn't update this thing at all TT_TT
prepare for a sketch dump of huge proportions when i get home in a few hours.
I like your diligent note-taking Nice style you have going, keep up doing studies and posting! Where's that dump you speak of? I wanna see
