So I've been contemplating uploading here for a long time but have just been waaaaay too nervous because everyones art work on here looks absolutely astounding to me!
But you know what, how else am i going to improve if I don't share my in progress sketches and doodles.
I'll try and post at least once a week over the summer, but no promises.
Most of the time my sketches are completely incoherent and random, every now and then there will be a thumbnail or something along those lines.
I'll try and remember to upload my digital stuff here too as I do need a LOT of help with my digital stuff
anyhoos... enough rambling... heres some art...
i've compiled a whole bunch of recent sketches together in this one big image, some are just from imagination, some are initial sketches for some larger projects and there is a few studies of my house mates limbs.

thank you for the comment :3
Hopefully I will be digging out my books and doing some arm studies this week as im absolutely useless at those.
I have been however trying to do a little work on hands. I've also just got some idle doodles.
Some random digital colour sketches inspired by a movie... that i can't tell you what it is otherwise it would ruin the ending 8D
people who may know what movie this is keep it to yourselves lol
2 versions because i quite liked both the moods.
Self portrait plus some tonal practice since my black and white work really tends to suck digitally :/
need more practice. And i tried adding colour but had no idea how to pull it off correctly... any tips?
You never cease to amaze me. You seem to improve with every picture to much of my viewing delight. Keep up the fantastic work!
Hey Arrowroot cool to see you decided to start a sketchbook here, There is no need to be nervous, I means whats the worst some one can say? your shit give up =) meh I tell myself that all the time already =) and at very least its a cool little source of inspiration like oo I might spend a little bit extra time on this sketch so I don't look too sucky when I post in my sketch book. O and post alot more its hard to give critique until you can see range of work of where the person is at . http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1247341403 I enjoyed this sketch you get a good idea of what type of charter she is.
thank you for commenting back :3 and for the compliment :3 and the tips of course! I've been silently lurking through so many peoples sketchbooks here that I am inspired to try some of their exercises out. Hopefully I start pumping out a larger amount of work soon :3Hey Arrowroot cool to see you decided to start a sketchbook here, There is no need to be nervous, I means whats the worst some one can say? your shit give up =) meh I tell myself that all the time already =) and at very least its a cool little source of inspiration like oo I might spend a little bit extra time on this sketch so I don't look too sucky when I post in my sketch book.

not sure why you're degrading yourself- your stuff is really nice. well, u need some practice but who doesn't? i would advise u to study a bit of anathomy( it's boring but it helps a lot- u'll see) even for drawing cartoons and stuff. btw i like that cartoonish style of yours, so keep it up!
it's not my place (in the 9 to 5 world)
nice sketchbook sofar! very expressive faces
thanks all for comments guys :3
I am going to be working on some arm anatomy studies today. But for now heres this...
I know I know ewww furry.
Just for a bit of fun and an experiment. This was really one of those doodles that just got carried away with.
I roughed it out in Open canvas and then did tweaking in Photoshop and then more coloring in painter. I am new to painter so i really enjoy experimenting with it.
I want to go back to this one and re do the eyes as they look squiffy and I don't like the shape/style of them. i also want to try and re do the bottom half around the arms/hands as that also doesn't really make sense. And just in general try and tighten the image up.
Heres another colour practice. I Did not draw this. A friend of my uploaded this in a sketch dump (http://caden13.deviantart.com ) and i just loved the sketch so much I decided to have a go at colouring.
I want to go back to this one as well as I have not defined the face well.. where as the boobs came out quite good lol. But yeah I want to re do the face and maybe attempt at turning the sketch a bit more realistic where the eyes and mouth are concerned.
I also need to define the hair a bit more. Make it less messy.
More painter stuff :3
Hey guys... long time on hiatus...
Been busy with getting stuff ready for school among most things.
So finally this year we are doing more comic book layout stuff. SO I thought I'd share a little bit. I'm still really dodgy with things like perspective but I'm learning.
Our first couple of weeks was a Cinematic Story Telling Class taught by Ken Steacey :3 he was really awesome for a teacher and look forward to seeing him again next year. I learnt a lot, its a shame didn't have him for longer.
Our first assignment was ''A ____ Walks into A _____ and Meets A ____''
Also i am sorry I don't have a scanner big enough for these 11x17 pages >_<
Also sorry for my dodgy perspective and use of tangents 8D
more comic layout stuff, un-refined sketch on a 5x7 scale, again for school. I have a lot of fun doing this. I will try to scan in some more of these when I get my paws back on them.
Props... something i really struggle with. My perspective really isn't the most amazing in the world. I am trying hard to learn but sometimes I am so pushed for time I really can't watch half the tutorial vids people have laying around.
Maybe once I get my routine more organized I'll have some ''non-school-work'' time to work on my own stuff and further development.
