Elevated Doodles

When I'm getting in the zone and elevated to that next level of concentration (usually when I'm supposed to be getting schoolwork done) I sit down with a few pilot pens and out come these. Feedback appreciated!

Great expressionism...you really should invest in some better grade paper, even though I like the note paper it gives a quality that could be taken to your next level of being an artist. These will give you a road map later in your art career when you back on them many years later. Great work...

Thanks much! I like that note paper because it expresses when and where I do these; Usually while I SHOULD be doing schoolwork. But I will definitely look into art-grade paper, Thanks again!

Your art will continue to grow as long as you want it to and as long as you pursue your talents...I know this may sound a bit harsh but it is now the time to start building your skills and taking your art to the next level. It is perfectly okay to do sketches on anything at hand, I know I have hundreds of scraps of paper with my stuff on it, cardboard box's, napkins, you name it I drew on it. It was when I started to take my art serious that I began to realize the potential of what may be possible. Also, I still sketch on any scrap of paper when I cannot get my hands on something more suitable because of an idea I have and I want to get it out on paper so I do not loose my train of thought. I only say this because you have great talent and ideas that need to be presented in such a manner that will be presentable and more complete. Have you ever used traditional quills and ink? If not I believe you would find them very interesting and will give you great flexibility in your work...regardless of what you end up doing, just keep creating!

side note; maybe think about a hardbound sketch book that you can keep with you and start filling that up, your work is worth it!

You have some great talent! I'm with George on this one, if you're looking to truly elevate your work you should invest in some mixed media paper. They have books of mixed media paper at almost any major art shop and the great thing about mixed media is the ink doesn't soak through, a problem I had a hard time solving when I was doodling during school hours lol. Keep drawing, you have a wonderful talent!
