These things are called a sketchbook, right? Oh well. IT IS NOW 8D

Lot of these are big, sorry about that... and most of them are pencil sketches since my inking pens are DEAD. (R.I.P)

But I hope you somewhat enjoy it anyways...! (*cough* and that you don't melt your eyeballs *cough*) critiques/suggestions are always welcome :)

COMMENCING WITH THE SPAMMMMMMMM!

Spoiler! :

Just a sketch that I molested my prismas with... then altered them using Picnik (though that isn't a texture... those are all just my mistakes that surfaced...)

I think her hand is too stuff... CURSES.

First time using a pen to do anything... ignore her right leg xD

Trying out something new with my eyes ^^ I swear to god I DON'T have an eyelash fetish. LIES.

Spoiler! :

My black pen ran out of ink halfway through this, and I was running around the house for what must've been at least 10 minutes looking for a new one. But the best I could find was a purple-ish one D<

Spiffy. I like those two particularly. ^
Personally, I would make the more realistic eyes a bit smaller; but if you like them, that's all that really matters.

Thank you so much for the input! It makes me incredibly happy!!! (really, it's kinda creepy...) I'll try to draw my eyes smaller and see how it looks! ^^

More sketches & stuff~

Image
I am proud of those boobs. Was originally drawn to see how I liked the eyes being smaller, but they're the only thing I really dislike about this sketch. Damn.

Image
Tried something new with this, and I really like it ^^

More tomorrow!!

By the way, I'm planning on taking requests soon, for more info, go here ^^

Request I got today, and finished today. You can tell it was kind of rushed, but they said it was better than they had been expecting (which I'm taking as a compliment). Found out a screwed it over, though, and I have to find a way to fix it *DRAMATIC SIGH*

Image
I hate this, but I posting it here anyways xD

Spoiler! :

Was bored, so I drew a bunch of eyes the other day...


Gave this thread a more appealing name.

Another request, which has a lot more detail than the last one (which I kinda feel bad about when I think of the first one ^^; )

Image
A bunch of sketches I did after watching the music video Breaking the Habit by Linkin Park, because that art style is amazing and I love it. I need to work on more dynamic poses...

nice stuff! looks really great, and you have a huuuge amount of potential *v* i think you're in a really good place to play and experiment with style, so be sure to keep up with that!
one thing i would suggest is to work on your anatomy. your limbs have a tendency to look not really "attached" to the body, and disproportionate to each other. also watch your facial anatomy. do you use guide lines when laying out the features? i would recommend that, just so that you can get a hang on how things are arranged on the face correctly.
if you build up your foundations, then you'll have a muuuuch easier time applying a style to your work. i'll be watching this thread ;>

Have I ever told you that I love your art? No? Well, I love your art. I will camp here until I run out of food.

Also, like ninjies said, you have a ridiculous amount of potential. I can't wait to see more from you.

Her face looked squashed, so I altered it in ps, but it feels like cheating so I'll probably post the original when I get around to it.
And I discovered my habit for covering a single eye each time I draw a face. I gotta learn how to not do that...

Spoiler! :
Image

It was drastically tilted from the hips down, so I tried to fix it with photoshop, but I failed... it's painfully obvious... D; and I dislike her hands. Very much.

Spoiler! :
Image

I don't know if I like this or not... I had trouble with the shape of the face, but I think I did okay... and the teeth, I don't think I did those right either, also the wrinkles by the mouth. The nose is too pointy for my liking, and I'm worried about those eyes...
Oh well, I think it's half-decent... ;D

Thank you so much! I've been drawing for about 1 1/2 - 2 years, so I hope you're right... :D
And no, I don't draw guidelines anymore. I used to, but they became too tedious and troublesome, so I gave up on them... but It'll try and pick them again, because I know what you're talking about ^^;

Thank you so much! You made me blush, which really looks strange since my whole body flushes red. Was that information necessary? No, but I felt the need to say it anyways.

*hands out cookies* don't starve D;


Thank you both for your comments, they make me so happy I could go through the roof from jumping for joy! They are the kindest, most informative words I've heard about my art, especially about me having potential. I never thought about it before, but it makes me really excited, and it makes me want to grab and pencil and draw untill my hand breaks... too bad I've run out of leads for my mechanical pencils. I'm going to have to get more tomorrow.

Oh yeah, the only reason I'm not posting every day, is because I don't want to spam my dA. But I did today because I felt really happy about what you guys said *melts into a puddle*

Just something I did just then, because I was bored.

BUT I CLEARLY NEED TO PRACTICE USING THE TABLET, AS I SUCK. Even thought I don't need it.

Hey, tablets take a little while to get used to. When you are naturally looking down at a piece of paper and drawing, it's hard to shift from that position to forward on to a computer screen. Seriously you'll do just fine. Maybe try changing your pen settings in the program you're using for better results. At least for the lines.

Also I always wanna do meme's but I forget about them. :<

Your drawings have sorta Tim Burtonish feel. Its really cool, and you pick colors well.

Tablets take time. Don't get discouraged. And draw more. I absolutely love your work and your attention to detail. You pick out things that I have trouble noticing.

(Although, perhaps that's my fault and I'm just being ignorant)
