Ok, so I'm 21, I live in England, and I'm in my final year of university studying English. Except I've actually already had my last lecture, and am trying to finish off the essays, and then I'm done! Which is kind of scary. Not least because it means that I can't spend my lectures doodling anymore. Hmph. I'd got renowned for it.
Artwise, I've been a chronic doodler since forever, but I only started taking art seriously a couple of years ago, and really started trying. I've been surrounded by art all my life, my dad's a depressingly talented artist who specialises in maritime but can effortlessly whip out a dragon painting too. Damn him. I never tried art seriously - including taking classes or whatever - on account of the fact that I've been afflicted with some incredibly nasty art teachers. When I was 11, I was informed that I had no talent and never would, and it kind of put me off. But then I realised that was total crap. I'm by no means an amazing artist, I have a hell of a lot to learn, but I think for someone who has only been doing it for a couple of years and has had no lessons, I'm pretty good. But I am kind of limited, so I might start taking a few courses.
I started out drawing manga/anime style, but I'm trying to get away from it. It's a good starting point, but I'd like to start doing something a little more original. I'm not deriding anime, here, but Elfwood is rather deluged with it. I'm also trying to start drawing more dragons and fantasy creatures - I did a dragon picture for my mother's christmas present. Also, I love fairies - particularly feisty little ones.
Also? I hate my scanner. It's an evil - NEW! - piece of junk that DOESN'T WORK! And it really hates watercolour pencils. I think it's going to come alive at night and kill me. Eeeeevil scanner.

*evil person from university sneaks into the room and glances around. She sees great drawings from highly talented person, and gets jealous and pouts*
Am most impressed my dear, as I often see you scribbling. Nice to see some of the end results.
*person ruffles short dark hair, before retreating back into the world of words once more. The colours scare her.*

Sarah I love each and everyone of your drawings and would love to comment to all but they would all be similar posts so here it goes. I love everything, the way you draw their faces is my favorite. I like how each one is different but somehow the same. I do have to say that I really liked the elf witht he experimental nose. The nose was very cute and button like.
Again I love them all and I'm not just saying that because I'm one of your bestest friends. *g* keep up the good work and I think you should send out christmas cards to your closest friends and have one of your drawings on the cover. Sarah Benita Vernon
replies: "*grin* It's like your psychic...Thanks, hun!"

I like the cool arty type photo of you on the page now. Is that new?
New pictures rock, BTW... as I will shortly say on each of them individually... *g* Sarah Benita Vernon
replies: "*g* My whining for comments seems to work. Both you and Chana ran to spam me with comments. Hurrah! Photo isn't new, it's been there possibly six months now. It's the same photo I use in my purple LJ icon. "

Woohoo! New pictures... My favourite has to be the student witch... ~g~ It's all in the details.
~Hands over peanuts~ There. Go draw men. I know you can, I've seen them. ~glowers~ And don't say it's easier if they have girly hair, or you will be whapped.
10/10 for style, imagination and attention to detail. Go to the head of the class. ~smirk~ Sarah Benita Vernon
replies: "Well, I guess it's easier if they have girly.... uh... girly girls in the photo with them. Like Sacrifice. *cough* *mutters* Isuckatdrawningmen..."

Heya, just found your gallery through your rant on the LJ about anime. Hee hee. I am so gald you said that stuff, I've been getting really annoyed about people's snobby attitudes when it comes to anime lately. Anyway, your board isn't the place to post this. lol. I really love your gallery, the elves are beautiful. I have to go to work but I'll look around later and add better comments. Sorry.

Gotta agree with your statement about anyone who tells you, or anyone else for that matter, that they "have not talent". That is crap. Everyone has talent, what is blended with that talent is skill, which comes with practice. Sometimes I get upset when people comment that they are jealous of my talent (writing); makes me feel like they think it was effortless. I prefer skill to talent, for it comes with experience and hard work... I'll take a little luck along with that though...
Love your stories and your art! Keep at it!
Oh, and one more thing...
