Hello everyone!!! I've been looking at the amazing art on CA.org for about two years, but only mustered my courage now to join ))
The dream is to learn how to become a concept artist creating artwork for motion pictures. I know CA is the place to be where one can learn how to make one's dreams come true!
Just to start my sketchbook thread, here are some quick wintertime sketches...

Nice background in the cheetah drawing! I have a hard time creating backgrounds that flow with the foreground. Good job!
I've been obsessed with soap bubbles!!! Have been looking at different photos for a week now trying to understand how to create one in Photoshop. I searched, but there were no good tutorials online The ones that I found were showing just white transparent bubbles - and I was trying to create those colorful ones with beautiful reflections. I think I figured it out now - I'm even thinking I might write a tutorial to share the process... Now I need to try and do a painting with multiple bubbles in the shot.

Great stuff so far your bubble looks awesome really looks like you put alot of work into it. Keep up the great work.
I think you can tell I started from the top left corner thinking this would be a small doodle... But my daughter was dead serious - I had to draw ALL her toys the way she placed them! See if you can spot familiar faces from the recent blockbuster movies and other characters And, yes, she does have 7 Barbies!
I actually like this sketch a lot - I think I need to fix the composition and the proportions on some of the toys and turn it into a real painting!
LOL. That's adorable!
I spot Puss in Boots and is the tiny figurine on the left Dora the explorer?
Here are some quick ones from SDCC - most of these were 5-10 second sketches that I enhanced a bit when I got home. What you see a lot at SDCC, when you are in diferent panels, is a lot of people sitting with their backs to you... But sometimes you see faces, too and sometimes people even sit still long enough for you to draw the entire figure!
hey! Good start, for your sketches I would suggest building them up rather then just going right into it, so draw the construction lines first, I think it would help you with your illustrations and understanding of drawing =)
btw: which art institute are you going to, I am thinking about going to an art institute college and wanted to hear how it was from an actual student

Why so awesome?
Well, building a sketch up is definitely a good practice when you have time. But if you are in a crowd of people - at a con or on a subway or anywhere - you'll find that you only have 5-10 seconds to draw the person before they move and disappear from view. As my favourite professor at Pratt Institute used to say: "In real life only a model or a corpse would stay still for you while you draw them." Pratt was the best place for me and I'd definitely recommend it to any student who wants to study illustration. Good luck! Feel free to contact me if you have more questions.
