Hi! This is Alexis again. As many of you AGers know, I have a writing thread called Alexis' Assorted Writings.

Well, now I have one for my doodles/ paintings/ anything else I somehow make that somehow qualifies as being art!

Here's my first one:

Hopefully it will work. Its well known that I suck at posting images.

Thank you, friends! I decided I didn't want to draw her face so I drew a big gaping hole

Hey, whatever works. I can fully understand not drawing a face.

Alexis, you're probably one of the best artists I've seen on AG so far. The Self portraits you did on the first few pages were awesome. I'm more into music as I have no artistic skill what so ever, but I'm working on a few things for my Art class. Any tips on pencil drawings (is that the right name?) would be appreciated and used. Thanks, and keep up the great work.

Oh jeez, I haven't been on here in a long time D: I have a lot of new stuff to post. Pieguyme, I learned a lot of techniques from a book titled "how to draw real people" that my parents got me for Christmas several years ago. I also looked up how to draw faces and bodies proportionally on the internet, and that helped. Invest in a nice set of art pencils, Staedtler is an amazing brand, and get some blending stubs (tortillions) or learn how to make them yourself. Practice is also important, I know that every single time I draw, that I improve little by little, and looking back at my older stuff, I'm leaps and bounds ahead of where I used to be artistically. Youtube is your friend. There are amazing artists out there who do tutorials and speed drawings, so just watch those and it should end up being pretty easy to pick up techniques.

Ok. Now for the art dump. I'm going to try to keep these in order from oldest to most recent.


This is a colored in version of the one above that I had inked.

This is a graphite piece that I was working on, it was for fun and it was a really casual drawing.

I worked on it some more and I realized it was one of my favorite pieces I've done so far, but I haven't even finished it yet. I decided to only work on it when I was in a happy, creative mood.

I had been wanting more practice with my india ink pens, so I drew an elk and colored it with prismacolor verithin colored pencils

Then, I began working on an owl, with india ink, and i colored it in (barely) with my prismacolor watercolor pencils

THEEENNN I started on a wolf. I worked on it for about 5 or 6 hours, again, done with india ink.

Finally, as I mentioned before, I have watercolor pencils. I hadn't used them EVER before the owl, so I practiced by drawing my eye.

And that is just about it for now. I am working on a few largish projects, and I will probably post those eventually.

It's always nice to see your skills progressing so well. Getting a look at your new stuff (well, new to me) is grand. Keep it up! ^_^

Yeah, that is about the last time I saw any of your work. By the time I'm ready to get another tattoo, you are most definitely going to be the person I get in touch with first.

You have prismacolor pencils? ENVYYYYYYYYYY
Are they really worth the price tag? Judging by your work I would say yes, but your coloring technique has always been awesome.

This is fantastic! Wow! I am amazed.
I'm a writer; I get kinda intimidated by art cuz I can't do it.
Wow.

The eyes are fantastic. The others are as well, but the eyes are my favorite.
