I'm fairly new to these forums and so far i have only posted in the Sketches/WiP/Critique section, so you might not have seen me before!
The other day i was looking through someone's sketchbook on a different forum and i was really impressed and loved seeing the progress in the persons skill,
so i have kind of been wanting to do the same thing - but i like this forum best so i'll do it here ;)
My name is Dana, i was born in the Netherlands but moved to London at 19 years old, i am currently 20 years old. I'm not going to school or have a job but this will change soon!
The plan is to move back to the Netherlands in december, where i will try to go back to school and hopefully get some mentoring drawing-wise.
Apart from drawing, i have always been into gaming (sadly, this takes up a LOT of the time that i could be spending on drawing), and i just love exploring all artsy and creative things.
I actually used to make some Digital Art process videos on youtube which you can find here: http://www.youtube.com/user/DPdrawings
Anyway, that's about it, i'm quite boring!
Seeing as sketchbooks are a lot about progress, i thought i would start of with showing you all some early on sketches that i managed to find on my computer;
These are both from 2009 when i was 17 years old, i loved drawing but didn't take it serious and never considered it as a possible career.
You can find a few more drawings on my deviantart: http://pupsie.deviantart.com/gallery/
In 2011 i started getting interested in Digital Art and from then on i have just tried to get better at it and haven't done many pencil studies (at all!).
Here are a few of my first ever digital pieces:
Really hate these pieces by now haha but practice, practice, practice!
And here is my most recent piece:
I know there's a lot of stuff that i could have done better on this one, but i got quite sick of it at some point and just wanted to finish it, i still feel like i have improved quite a bit though!
Now for my most recent sketches:
These are such bad quality but i quite liked them so yus...
And this one i did just now ^
Sorry if i'm not supposed to make the first post so big and full of pictures - feel free to get rid of them!
Hope you guys like it and critiques are so very welcome :)
Thanks for looking! x
