Hiccups Sketchbook!
Hey guys I'm a 20 year old, british student (currently on my year out) studying Illustration.

I'll keep it short and sweet.

I've always wanted to draw for a living and often find myself fluttering between the idea of being a concept artist or a comic book artist.. I'm aware considering I'm 20 (21 in April D:) I'm somewhat behind on my technical knowledge and line quality.. and as much as I would like to blame my terrible university course(Heavily advise -not- going to The University of Huddersfield to do illustration) for that it always comes down to personal commitment.

Here's some examples of my work in the recent months.
(I have a nasty habit of not finishing pieces, so I apologise for that)

Goals for this sketchbook.

Be braver with my work and try different things.

Learn and wise up on the formal elements.

Explore digital painting.

Commit to my work and start taking it more serious, don't give up on myself.

Thanks for reading guys!
The faces are nice, but the bodies in the drawings you posted seem a bit stiff.

Maybe you could practice some gesture drawing?

Hiya! Hiya! Hiya!

Indeed, I need to brush up on my anatomy skills, could you give me an example of gesture drawings?

Do you mean loose sketches that focus on larger shapes and the ' movement ' of the study?

Thanks for the feedback :)
I'll post this Proko video for you. It's all about gesture. If you've never heard of him, he's legit, but a real cornball.


Hiya! Hiya! Hiya!
