Subject title: Eli's Sketchbook :) [Ehlihr]

HELLO BIG DISCLAIMER: I am 18 (as of march 2019) now, in art school for illustration, and a long distance from 2014 me. If you'd like, I really recommend skipping past like page 11 or something, bc a lot has changed!!! anyway, enjoy my sketchbook, six years in the making, and consider my instagram @ehlihr for regular posts haha

Hey! I'm Eli, and I'm a 13 year old hobbyist. I really love art and I think this would be a great place to post it and get both positive and critical feedback :D

I just finished this piece today. It's a quick drawing of me and my friend :) I'm the one on the right.

I have a small obsession with this loser's face. I mean, I really, really love Colin Morgan. It hurts.

HAHAHAHA! that's like every girl (on tumblr) i know from age 15-25! just needs to add, "complains about not getting welfare checks, complains that her occupation isn't valued because she's a woman, hates men because other girls on tumblr hate men, and stays on tumblr 2/3ds of the day. Also even when in arguments with loved one's is sharing pics on tumblr."

Goodness i could go on forever... 13 on the toilet we call the internet... bless your heart.. <3

I dunno, when I say I'm a feminist I don't mean I hate men, it just means I want to be valued with men equally and not have a lot of expectations to conform to what society wants me to do. I don't spend all my time on tumblr, I only go on a few times a day lol. My time is mostly spent reading or drawing x)

Oh i understand; i'm just cynical about it. The reason being is that many young ladies claim to be feminists and don't really understand what it means? and a good majority of them like blatantly say they hate men with very hollow reasons behind it.I hope you see where i'm coming from.. I apologize if i made you uneasy; please share more of your work :)!

I can totally see where you're coming from. There are a lot of not-feminist-feminists on Tumblr and the internet, which can make it a bit hard to distinguish between them lol. And you didn't make me uneasy at all! I'm glad I could clarify what I meant haha. :D Totally going to share my work.

I just never got used to drawing them, y'know? Like, for every 100 girls I drew I drew maybe half a guy and that really affected my skill with them. Also, their anatomy is haaard and I'm really lazy. :P And thanks! :D

Trying something new. Created a concept piece for a character in a medieval dress. With this weirdass brush I saw in this brush thing I have, so it looks pretty terrible, but I was bored.

Since I'm literally the laziest person on earth I've created a Fem!Merlin sketch. I'm having an art block.

You have very nice aesthetics in your work :D that last character's left eye is a bit high up, it doesn't seem to contribute to the expression you seem to be going for there. I look forward to seeing more :)

Hi Eli! Nice sketchbook here. I think you're doing really well. One thing I'll suggest is to work on making cleaner lines. It's something I'm working on too btw. All-in-all your drawings are looking good. You say you can't draw men, but your Colin Morgan came out great! :D Keep at it and post often!!

Thank you so much :D :D :D I' used to make much cleaner lines, but I'm not sure why I stopped that tbh.
