Subject title: Skell's Sketchbook

Hello, once upon a time I had an account and topic here but I can't remember why old account details for the life of me and also don't care that much. Decided to make a new account with my kinda global username. Except tumblr, i had to add another o into the name 'cause someone jacked the good 'ol double o and doesnt even use the url! what a waste tbh
anyway u didn't click this post to hear me whine u clicked it so see some art! so! lets get artsy then!
I'm gonna post what I've done from this lovely year of 2015 and if it's requested then I'll go back into some earlier years? possibly. Nnnot sure if anyone would be even vaguely interested but whatever, just throwin it out there.
-January (I...didn't draw much this month whoopsies):
Image

Image

-February (didn't draw much this month either HAHA):
Image

-March(I actually did things this month wow. not many things but things nonetheless):
http://pre06.deviantart.net/ecf2/th/pre/i/2015/270/7/b/gemsona_by_natie15-d9b1zwj.png apparently there's a size cap on images whoopsies

-April:

-May (OC'S GALORE HOO BOY BE GENTLE WITH ME PLEASE):

(not an oc haha cool)

-June (there's actually more but its mostly doodles so im not gonna post):

-July:
this is quite literally all I have to offer. It does have a background in the finished version but it is meant for my eyes and my eyes only.
http://orig04.deviantart.net/0ab0/f/2015/270/9/e/cool_teens_nobg_by_natie15-d9b21f4.png

-August:
http://pre00.deviantart.net/9110/th/pre/i/2015/270/0/a/kitty_elf_bustt_by_natie15-d9b21jf.png I ended up scraping this and then redoing it traditionally in watercolor and fooloshly forgot to scan it, and it's currently in an art showing so I can't...actually...show it here. whoops.

Image
Image
Image

-September (THAT'S THIS MONTH! WOW FINALLY!):
I was in a digital slump literally all month until like yesterday? no, friday, and this is like the first thing I drew lmao. ALSO I should warn, these file sizes are huge. Mostly because I need to get used to drawing bigger for my portfolio. uh also warning for profanity? it's just the first 2 images

http://pre03.deviantart.net/fdf4/th/pre/i/2015/270/9/0/woah_by_natie15-d9b21zd.png

http://orig09.deviantart.net/33e4/f/2015/270/7/a/heheh_by_natie15-d9b21xj.png
http://pre00.deviantart.net/d2d6/th/pre/i/2015/270/b/6/ponyskellpainting_by_natie15-d9b21ww.png I AM SO TIRED OF WORKING ON THIS!! Im so. ugh.
http://pre04.deviantart.net/7a89/th/pre/i/2015/270/1/7/lil_lavellen_by_natie15-d9b21wi.png I love this one dearly. I literally just made it like 2 hours ago ha

Image
Image

AAAAnd that's all I got! those last 2 pixels are actually sketches I did traditionally and then took pics and made them into pixels. idk how to feel abt 'em. I did them during the digital slump so they're not that great.
So, yea! Comments are greatly appreciated. Tell me what you think! Once I finish my traditional sketchbook I might take some pictures and slap em up here. possibly.

Great start to your new sketchbook :D it's awesome to see the variety in your art, looks like you're experimenting a lot which is always a good way to improve, keep it up!

thank u! :^) I tend to bounce around various..styles? I guess? Not really styles but more like bouncing from realism to more cartoony to just straight up doodles? You know what I'm saying?

New stuff! Last night I drew tumblr user caprette b/c she posted a selfie and I love her nose

Image

so many sparkles. it was a quick thing, took only about like 45 minutes to an hour?

and then I finished (i say finished, but really I mean that I just don't want to work on this anymore) the portrait of my friend Kitty. Her eye is off and there's other various errors and I know how to fix them but i'd take a while and I don't want to mess with this piece anymore so. I'll just let it be.

Image

Aaand that's all I have rn! 'till next time!

I might've went a TEENY bit overboard in a doode of my friend? Maybe

Who knows really.

I'm also working on another portrait, it's very much in the beginning stages tho. I'm not having a lot of fun with it TBH

so I've been shite with doing digital stuffs
HOWEVER I have been doing lotsa traditional things. I've had the same (literal) sketchbook for 2 years and I'm finally like 2 pages from being done with it?? Excitement :3cc

I did a few digital things this week tho so thats good. its (almost. like 99%) all dragon age inquisition related tho
hairstyle idea:

Image
Some baby dalish kiddos:

Image

honestly im really unhappy with that? like I can do better tbh... but ohwell. I think it's bcuz I went so light with the lineart?
eh

and then I decided to restart the portrait of my friend I was doing and use a different reference. I'm having a much better time with this one, I'm also less concerned abt making it realistic and I'm instead just doing what feels right. Luv that art style (I mean of course I do - it's mine! :^) )

The way you've painted skin on the last few characters looks very good, not plastic looking at all.

BTW, do you watch Will Terry's youtube videos?
He does a lot of character sketches and I'm sure he mentioned about not necessarily having to do a realistic drawing to get someones likeness.
Coincidentally enough he also emphasises completing sketchbooks is a good way to improve.

Thank you!! :^)) i honestly dunno what that means when people say "plastic looking skin" tbh? Like. s'just skin y'know? I see it everyday and its like, well. Idk. I'm the kinda person who just observes and stares at stuff till it makes sense, and then I draw it or paint it. Not a lot of like technical stuff going on that I can explain lmao.

and uh no actually, Ive got no idea who that even is lmao. And I realize abt not having to do realism, it's just that all this work is for my portfolio so I can't really. Submit anything super stylized 'else it's a guaranteed failing or barely passing grade. The people who look at it (I live in california, my portfolio gets shipped off to a board of old ppl to grade it) really dont like it if it looks too "anime" aka, anything that is more cartoonish than necessary.
Which is lame. But c'est a la ve! And yea!! I've been very determined to get my sketchbook done, altho thats mostly due to just the idea of finally having one finished. my family keeps buying me them and im like [sweats] haven't even finished one yet

I do watch audra auclair on YT tho! She's so good and all her stuff is super pretty and I'm super inspired by her, and also Tilith. Altho it's more prevalent in my traditional art than in my digital
Thank u for commenting! :^)))

Progress update on the portrait of my lovly friendo! Got the skin and dat hair done - or well abt 60% done, still gotta add highlights. I always do that last tho, once I've got the bg done and such so I know what kinda colors I wanna use :>
Image

also u get to see my palette [gasp] how scandalous

Oh the youtuber I meant to say is Will Terrell, not terry... :roll:

Anyway I've heard about places not liking anything very stylized, so I see why you'd want to stay more realistic.
