PostSubject: DecemberDream's Doodles   Sun Aug 08, 2010 2:28 pm

I've never thought of myself as much of an artist. But I've always loved to get a pencil and just draw away. When I was little and I was all danced out I'd lie on the floor of my bedroom for hours and I'd just draw whatever was in my mind.
I've always been a reader and as I read a story, the characters would always flash before my eyes. So then I got out a pencil and some paper and I'd just drew them as I saw them in my head. Until I'd get so frustrated because what I wanted to do didn't quite work out that way.

Today, it's no different. I still love drawing the things I see in my head. I don't do portraits of people that already exist, I much rather bring to life the ones that are just words.

So yeah, "people", or characters, are what I do the most. Sometimes I think them up myself, sometimes someone else has thought them up for me and I get them from books I read or stories I hear.
Personally I think my drawings are okay, but not great. It's definite amateur work in my own opinion. I still often can't get it exactly like I want it. I struggle with facial expressions, noses, feet, but mostly lighting and shadows. I have no clue how to do that. So constructive feedback is appreciated.

The first drawing I want to post is the one I love the most. She took me ages haha. I don't have her scanned yet (I only own a broken scanner), so for now a picture of the drawing will have to do. I'll post a scanned version as soon as I have one.

This is "The Lady" (tilt your head, even though the images were in portrait format, the uploader posts them like this :s)



I've always loved her eyes Smile

waa she's GOOD Smile I don't like drawing with colored pencils, but you are good at it, you captured shades of colors well Smile
i see shadings, they are at right place, maybe you should just make them darker and "stronger" =)

but howewer, you surely have talent Smile
