Nae´s sketchbook
As I finished art-unrelated school, I have more time to do stuff that matters. So here is my sketchbook and hopefully I´ll be able to post and do as much as I can...

And let´s start with yesterday´s study...

I love the portrait, but the depth looks a tiny but dull.
I love your WIP enviroment painting.
Keep it up.

When I get upset, I would like to cut myself another slice of brownie!

I see you have some problems with drawing fire, maybe this will help also try to avoid symmetry, variate more size and distance so it will look more organic

Hey Naevea, looks like you're off to a good start! A good ratio to keep if you're looking for improvement is something like one imaginative piece for every three studies or so (I can't remember in whose sketchbook thread I read that). Of course, with each study, make sure to focus on what you need, not on making it look polished to perfection. So a skin tone study might not need a well rendered face or fingers, but those skin tones better be spot on. So yeah, I recommend cranking out tons of studies, and really focus on trying to understand the underlying elements for whatever it is you're studying. So if that's an environment, then pay attention to what creates a feeling of depth, how light and shadow look on the various natural surfaces, etc, or if you're doing a figure study, then don't just copy what you see, pay attention to how muscles bend in various poses, how figures balance when they stand; the basic point is never copy just for its own sake, always do so with the intention of improving your understanding of how the world functions, so you can hopefully invent something convincingly on your own. Hope this helps!
