My name is Vicki and I'm an energetic 22 year old. I'm a recent college grad from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a passion for Illustration and Concept Design.
I love drawing, I love painting, I love making pictures that tell stories, and I'm here to become a better artist.
Any critiques would rock on work I post here or general advice!

Well you are off to a good start. Keep it up.
I like the color mood and style of painting.
Keep up and congratulations
Sorry for bad english
This is a good start. I've been switching between your painting and the original. You have picked up on the colours very well. However I think the most striking thing to me was the subtle depth in Morgan Weistling's piece, it made yours when looking back at seem a little flat. Little things such as the reflected light under her nose really sell the three-dimensionality. I'm probably over analysing but I hope to see some more of your work soon. I've been looking for artists to study from myself...Weistling looks tasty, thanks for indirectly introducing me to him
Cameronator- Thank you, I will try!
Gisaiagami- Thanks !
Traveler- Lol thanks, it's hard to make time for this stuff y'know?
Pixie Trick- Thanks so much
Callumbo- No, Thank you! I appreciate the nitpicking :0 It makes me realize mistakes. I tend to loose my value and make everything look flat when I paint digitally, I'm glad you pointed it out :0! And hell yeah, isn't he an amazing painter?
Update time ! These are mostly the past 2 weeks and such. I absolutely love figure drawing, so soooo much ;0; Once a week isn't enough!!!
stoof from my head
and 2 pose maniac sessions I did over winter break
love this shit so much. so many great gestures
RickyRubyo- Thank you! I can't wait to make more 8D
Peetaer- Thanks man For 1 min. poses it varies D: when I first started figure drawing a few years ago I used only charcoal and pencil. But they got too messy and my hand smudged all my drawings XD; So I started experimenting with derwent inktense pencils and prismacolor VERITHIN. They work like pencil, but don't smudge, and the inktense are water soluble! They are fantastic. And for those 2 sessions I also used graphite sticks... They are amazing for quick gesture.
Sooo small update. I made another Weistling master copy. And an apple with dramatic lighting. Tried to use different textures here. I'm definitely gonna try more dramatic lighting studies. They are so much fun. And work on that value! The compositions are central
beautiful start for your sketchbook
ill be staying tuned fersher
have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
Guh, great stuff. Those Weistling studies are sick.
Love your figure drawings, very dynamic. Keep it up
Mischeviouslittleelf - Thanks dude
OmertA- Thanks so much ;0;
mdbauman- Thank you, he's great to study!
Jay-Zee - Thanks man!
Yo so a small update of some acrylic paintings from the semester that just ended a few weeks ago. I took an intense painting for illustrators class. They where done during in class sessions of about 3 1/2- 4 hours.... I like painting a lot, it's so relaxing.
So an update with some stuff I've been doing this week.
I wish I could focus fully on improvement this summer, I'm trying my best to be productive with summer classes and work
Photoshop kinda killed itself and I lost all my brushes I've collected/made over the past 2 years... and I was genius enough to not save most of the ABR files -_- So I've been working with what I got xD atm/ tried to make some new brushes
Feel free to critique, I REALLY need it.
Sargent master study, don't remember the name..
Self portrait! Attempted with dramatic lighting
And I revamped some old o.c.s from 7 years ago... yay
I don't think I have any room to talk, but the Sargent painting seems to be lacking a little depth or unity...? I think it's the broken color shapes and rough brushstrokes, but what can you do? silly default brushes.
Excellent sketchbook! I love the way your colors work together - esp. the Weistling master copy! Brilliant stuff.
Clean3d: Thanks, I agree with the depth and unity D: I think it's cause I need more perspective stuff/ color practice, it's so different from traditional paints x_x
Vertical: Thank you Vertical !
Update time again! So I've never tried speedpainting or making enviro stuff digitally..... or ever and I figure it's time, so I tried to paint the scene outside my bedroom window once in the past 3 days. The first time I was afraid to make the house so I skipped it XDDD (If my perspective teacher I had 2 years ago saw those, he's probably wonder if I even paid attention in class Dx ) Don't be afraid to critique :'D !
Phwooaarr... so multi-talented! *o*
Really inspiring stuff. You gonna do big things sistah!
you have such lovely work! your studies give me ideas for my own...
Oh man, I love the colour in this sb. And the way you handle acrylic paint - this is gorgeous. I love how you can see the ribs of the cardboard.
It'd be interesting to see you take the acrylics across to some imagination stuff. Looking forward to seeing what else you do, keep it coming!
kingkostas - Omg thank you xD
Sulphur- Awe I'm glad I inspired you a bit XD Thank you!!!
phantasy- Thanks man, that's what great about this community we can all learn from each other ^_^
Emil- Thank you !
Dominode- Ahhh thank you haha, yeah I've been wanting to try that for sometime now!
Update time yay~
So I got a new monitor 21" to work with my laptop I've been painting on this 13" so long, now I feel like I can see what I'm painting lolololol
I made some quick paintings from photo's (that I didn't take) last night. They both had interesting lighting and fun colors XD
And some WIP character stuff from imagination
Thanks for popping into my sketchbook... & Wow! Your work is beautiful. Your color choices are great and you really give a lot of life in their expressions and with your strokes. Keep going, I'll be stayin tuned. I feel like I can learn a lot from you Subscribing
Wow, I love your work already!
Your lines in your sketches have incredible rhythm and your paintings flow beautifully. You have a very cool and unique style with a good range too.
I am totally subscribing, please keep posting!
Sonia leticia- Awe thanks girly anytime, keep on drawing
Zeitwolf- ahh would you believe me if I told you I used to make the tiniest of marks XD like hair width sized lolololol
Greyskill- Thank youuuu 8D That makes me so happy to hear that I have a style *_*
I did a quick figure drawing session last night. I want to do this everyday now, and dive deep into muscular and skeletal structures, dynamic poses, and forshortening soon *_*. I also want to do a digital painted version of all the figures i draw so I can keep it consistent
Refs for these were in a quicktime program. I used Virtual pose, and can move the pose 360 degrees it's awesome 8D
(photo is credited to vishustudio) Im also going to work on my male anatomy more, I don't draw or paint them enough.
