Welcome to daggers.

Good start to your sketch book, keep pushing yourself with the tablet and watching digital painting videos to help learn different process- youtube has feng zhu and xia taptara (idrawgirls.com) also ctrlpaint.com covers a huge range of techniques.

Beautiful sketches, these tell me you are very artistic, with hard work you will go far.
Keep them coming and less Wow :P, tho guilt free play is also very important for improvement,
its finding the balance between work and play right?


Take care.

work is play to me, I get paid to do paintings and concepts for companies ad I love doing it, so it feels more like play then work

Yeah pretty awesome, ideally thats what everyone should have,
to me on the other hand drawing builds up stress so I need stress relief like walking, exercising or socializing but usually is having fun what works the best to recover.

I dont know, that seems to be quite vague territory, like separation of hard work from talent, or as
you pointed our work and play, there seem to be people on both sides of belief or feeling on the subject matter so its hard to make general claims.

So to sum it up you dont need balance because painting brings both to the table, for those who dont have that, there has to be balance, so you dont fall into the trap of being hard worker drone or procrastinator as opposite, but somewhere in between.

Take care.

Dear if painting and drawing is stressful for you you better reconsider if that is something you wanna do. I paint after stressful day so I can relax. Because painting,drawing or playing piano is making me feel better, feel relaxed and happy. I don't push it and draw if I dont feel like it.
Well...I don't know how does it feel to go from scratch,but I've been drawing all my life. And I never felt like pushing things. If I can't paint something, ill just take it slow and learn,be persistant but never do it if I don't feel like it.
You will never accomplish something by rushing and think that you can be amazing painter in like a month or so. There are years and years of work after every succesfull painter.

I honestly never build up stress, I do take breaks though cause like everyone a break is needed to reboot your brain if you tire yourself out, I always have fun bringing imagination to life, and I 've found a very nice balance for work and play, to me work is maintaining my family life while play is what I do for a living, but as an artist it is hard for us to determine both as we find pleasure in both itself, if you don't you need to be doing something else :)

Wow guys, that hurts. Nevertheless thanks for sharing your experiences.
Altho I was initially about to write back all the things in my mind to clarify my intent I realised its not about me here, and I never imagined in the first place I would set your alarms off .
So thank you again and I hope we will see more artwork here and more positive spirit.

Take care.

good start for a sketchbook, very nice traditional work! Aside from the drawings I'm also liking the Lana and Sherlock pictures. Especially the colors in Lana's pic are really pretty <3

In general, I'd say, you could work on your value range to give your works more depth.


What I really, really like about your latest pic are the eyes (and eyebrows), they are very intense and piercing, they immediately draw you in. *__*

Woho :D Thank you so much for your comment, I'll work on that. I just started painting two months ago so I'm really working my best (can't do much because of college) to improve.
Thank you for visiting my sketchbook :3

great stuff.. I like the values on the face.
The irises are different in size and color .. but maybe it is this way for your cousin.
I appreciate the work you did into the blouse but wonder why don't you define the upper edge of the collar with a clearer edge?!
hope to see more of your work - and also hope to catch you online streaming again!
