hi it's been three years since i was here and i am cringing very hard at all this "art" lmao BUT quarantine has me revisiting my old life so i'm gonna add stuff i've made since quarantine here because why not :)
i also don't really wanna get rid of the stuff i had here before even though it's bad so i'm just gonna leave them at the end if anyone actually sees this and decides they wanna look at them for some reason

HUGE PSA: most of my current sketches are influenced by DrawingWiffWaffles on youtube so i can't take full credit for them all ALSO go watch her videos because she's adorable and amazing :)
another psa: these are all from my sketchbook and the pages are pure chaos because i tend to write notes to myself about the sketches and drawings run into each other, this is just how my mind works i'm sorry lmao
a third psa: this sketchbook is my learning process, this blog is not to show off my "skills", it's to show what i sketch as im learning different aspects of drawing so please keep that in mind when judging me :')

stuff i've made since quarantine
tangled has my heart

my new quarantine art blog :)
my new quarantine art blog :)

this is a redraw of a character i made 3 years ago, if you're for some reason interested, i made a skin of her and there's also the original drawing down in the cursed section

my new quarantine art blog :)


here are some messy sketches of a character i came up with as i drew her lmao




parks and rec is life (LEGS ARE HARD MY GOSH)




based off me i guess (the feet tho lmao)



based off a picture of me. i don't like drawing realism i can't get faces right




this one was drawn from a picture of me (i swear i don't regularly draw pictures of myself)



i was reading a book and this image came to my head and i think it came out pretty much how i wanted it to



her name is penelope pickett and she's adorable



me & my boyfriend <3



michonne because she's cool



babies are squishy and smol and fun to draw



i drew this as a response to something a friend said and i will continue to use it in the future



i sketched this pretty quickly idk where it came from but it's pretty groovy
also she needs a name



this girl is heavily inspired by lara jean



her name is tatters she's a clown and she's super sweet or is she



here's whole page bc there was nothing specific



i made a tiny flower crown and wished i could put it on a little birb so i decided to draw my own flower crown birb & i love him <3



her face is wider than i intended but i really like how her eyes match the background
she also needs a name :)



i know the lines definitely take away from this sketch but the words are super personal to me and im not prepared to be that vulnerable :')
i drew this on a bad day but i do like how it came out with the head up and the dress filling the bottom of the page




everything from 3+ years ago (enter at your own risk)



























idk why i said these were art but...wallpapers, maybe? :')









if i actually stay this time, i may update this in the weeks to come as i draw more because what else am i gonna do stuck at home :')
if anyone sees this, hi, i hope you're doing okay and i think you're great for getting through all that stuff up there and i hope you have an amazing day :)

Alright, your stuff is a bit all over the place, which is pretty awesome. Variance is key to success. It's a lot trickier to generally critique, though, so excuse me if I'm too vague.

Starting with physical conventions, you definitely need to find a better way to photograph your art. I straight-up can't see some pieces because of the bright light coming from the direction of the camera. Colors look like a weak point, with them being either disjointed or too samey. Your pencilwork needs some confidence, and some flow. Differing thickness throughout lines will lead to a more flowing and dynamic piece. Just tapering the ends will make all the difference.

Design is very simple throughout. Pieces look very similar, often blending into one grey-white blur. That has something to do with line confidence, but much more to do with flat design. Dynamic lighting is a huge deal when it comes to producing enticing and exciting work. You definitely want to work on proportions and shape when it comes to life and character drawings, I'd recommend blocking in areas with simple shapes and sewing them all together with the necessary lines. Putting the title of the piece along the edge is jarring and takes away. Especially when it is as bold as it is at some points.

Never take a picture of only a section of a piece. You want the whole thing to come together as one illustration, and sectioning off one bit will not convey what it is supposed to. Looking good is only half the battle.

All said, I'd love to see another person making amazing traditional art! Best of luck!

First off, Wow. No one's actually critiqued my art, or anything for that matter. I'm am honestly so so glad you did. I mean, it's nice and all when I ask someone if they like my art and they say they like it or whatever, but what I really want is some honest critique. And you've given me just that.

And yes, I know the photography isn't very good, I plan on fixing that. I was overly excited about putting an art blog up, and I took the pictures at night, with my tablet. Hehe...yeah, not the best choice. I should have some time soon to fix that, but with this being Thanksgiving week and all, I haven't had much time.

Yes, I know I need A TON of work when it comes to linework and overall confidence when drawing. Honestly, I've always loved drawing, but only recently have I been drawing a ton and when I see improvement, it wants to draw more, but then I think the problem with me is that I get afraid my next piece won't look as good as the last, so I stay basic. You're advice has really encouraged me to put myself into my work as much as I can, and to not be afraid to try. Sure, I know I'm gonna mess up, and there are gonna be tons of pieces I'm not proud of, but I'll learn from those pieces.

My dad is also a great sketcher. I look up to him a lot when it comes to drawing, and I guess I look at his work, and try to draw like that, when I'm really not to that yet. I'm hoping for Christmas or my upcoming birthday, I'll get a good set of shading and coloring pencils. Do you have any recommendations? I guess I kinda assumed you have experience with drawing, saying as your advice makes sense and is very helpful. If so, that would be very helpful. I hate it when I get some brand of pencils and they don't work for what I want.

O gosh, I didn't mean to write so much c: Thank you so so much for this critique, you don't know how much I need it!

I used Scholar pencils when working in color and on paper. Neither of those two really apply at the same time anymore, so I can't really give any recommendations. Most of my important stuff is digital anymore, I only did color sketches on paper before my pad came into my life. I wanna go back to fun pencily sketches! cx

I'm really glad to hear you're willing to make work, whatever the turnout is. That's really key to success in the arts. Make it, hate it, learn, do it again. Eventually, step two will disappear. Just do whatever, and you'll find your strong point.
