Hello everyone,

Just wanted to upload a sketchbook I have been working on.

It's been a growing aspiration for me to create a beautiful illustrated story with interesting characters - many of which are actually based off of real people.

However, as an amateur artist, the forms may be somewhat various in its forms, as I am still in the process of exploring what works. But any feedback will be greatly appreciated!

worth a note here is that occasionally I may post up some of my practice for acrylic and watercolor as it is rather fun and useful for me in working with illustrations. But the primary goal for me at this point will be centered on figure drawings, pen and ink.

here we go!

Here are some simple figures that I have been experimenting with. I simply been using simple shapes to get the overall body, however, these are drawn using mostly intuition rather than strictly following a chosen structure. Probably not a good habit for a new artist.

However, there are also no real shading as of yet. Hopefully improve shading in a little while after the forms are a bit more in place.

Here are also some notes I have made that came from several different sources.

The last two are drawn from real life.

P.S: Also my apologies for the quality of the images. I do not own a scanner so these were all taken by a webcam. :wink2:

I really like this bottom one, even though it is rather difficult to see.
