Written Art How-To's

1. How to Critique, and Receive a Critique…

2. (How to) Create your own Human Reference! (w/examples)…

I've been going through old art from childhood, middleschool, highschool, and college. If I were to share some of my wacky ideas from these periods, which would you be most interested to see?

Hey all!

It's hard to believe that it's already been 2 weeks since I've submitted something on deviantart. Whew! Time flies! Life seems to do a good job with keeping me busy, with all it's up's, downs....and everything in between.

Art projects wise, I've been working on multiple projects at the same time. Mostly catch up on projects that really should have been done a long time ago, but I put off for whatever reason(s) that made it difficult to work on or complete. Slowly I'm getting places, but every so slowly. :/

I'm also trying to fill up my ENTIRE watercolor sketchbook completely with finished and colored drawings/paintings so I can start off the year with a new sketchbook (and I may also do a youtube video of me paging through my sketchbook for shitz and giggles).  I've been drawing in this sketchbook since May 2014 so it's pretty impressive for me to attempt to full up an entire book with doodles/illustrations. If theres a drawing I dont like, I give up and move on to something else. Currently I have 11 pages to color. Of those 11 drawings, 1 is almost done, and the other I've started is now in the coloring process (minus a background, but that doesnt really matter...cuz I can bs something...muhahahhaha~!).

At the same time, I'm also trying to think ahead to other long term projects/goals I would like to work on. As I said before in previous journal entries, I really...really...REALLY...want to draw my own comic, but I'm having trouble with the writing process.  I tend to have the problem with creating interesting characters, but matching them with a subpar storyline, or creating an AMAZING plot with twists, turns, etc....but bleh characters. :/  I've been taking with my mom (the writer in the family) about some of my ideas...and she's been helping me with various writing/creative exercises to let the characters tell their story, rather than me dictate their story. It's definitely a learning experience....

Since it's getting to be the holiday season (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New years, my birthday...etc), I'm heavily considering doing a project thats more a gift for myself...which honestly sounds pretty selfish, but I usually dont get gifts I really want for Christmas or my Birthday anyway so I'll spoil myself for a change: I want to draw a family portrait of my mom, dad, and I together. I've mentioned before in the description of my projects that my parents are divorced. My mom left my dad when I was six, and later divorced him when I was nine. I'm sure my dad and mom will think it's pretty silly to draw such a portrait considering they aren't together anymore, but in the back of my mind...I'm aware I wouldn't be here if they had decided to not get together. It's kinda uplifting and depressing at the same time.

For now at least, Thats all I have to say. I hope I'll have something up in the next couple of days. ^_^;;

Hi, I'm Joan. I like drawing things that are of the following: colorful, girls, and cute things. I also draw comics every now and then, as well as experiment with other mediums (animation, jewelry making, doll making, etc etc). ^_^

Anyway, this deviantart account has been spanning my artwork since 2005(ish), so if you go through my gallery you'll see the progression of how my drawing style has developed. :)
