Subject title: Zimatrix's Sketchbook 2.0 - Remastered

Hey guys!

So due to an unfortunate error my old sketchbook got accidentally deleted during a spam purge (hence the new sketchbook) when things like this happen not a lot can be done about it so I don't see the point in dwelling on it, I'd much rather start this sketchbook on a positive note :D

In fact, I have some good news, I recently sent out my portfolio to a few illustration agencies and I've been accepted on a 6 month trial basis by Advocate Art - exciting stuff! And kind of fitting for starting a new sketchbook if you ask me :D

Anyway, I didn't want to start with just text so here's a sheep-girl I sketched earlier today, turns out horns are a lot more difficult than I thought

Image

PS - If anyone wants to look through the artwork that got deleted from my previous sketchbook, most of it is on my tumblr so hop on over there c :

Welcome back, Zimatrix HD 2.0 Remastered Edition :O Do I have to buy you again or can I upgrade if I have the previous version of you?

The sheep girl is super cute! I love her hair, and her horns! They're so solid and twisty and curly.

Congratulation on the 6 month trial! Hopefully it will be more than a trial.
We have DID (the thing Sycra has).

Quick summary of forum writers:
Artist: she is mainly the one who draws.
Writer: he is usually the one who writes on the forum.
Lawyer: he studies everything, honestly.
Real names are private.

Thank you c : I'm hoping everything goes well, having an agency is no guarantee of work but it's definitely a start and I'm really looking forward to my first project

I'm glad you like sheep girl :D she was a lot of fun to draw!

That's great, I'm rooting for you to get to work on a more permanent basis, I'd hire you :). Cute sheep girl btw; for some reason, mixing animal traits with humans never ceases to automatically attract me to a piece lol.

Thanks guys :D I really appreciate the support!

I tend not to draw too many animal/human hybrids but I've seen a few of my favourite artists do it to great effect so I thought I'd give it a shot XD it was fun too so maybe I'll play around with it some more c :

I have an obsession with giving humans animal traits.

Do not get me going

Do.
Not.

Why else do you think I gave myself this username??

But I really do love your sheep girl ;u; I absolutely LOVE the horns, and she looks so happy.

Haha, I was aiming more to make the guy look tiny but I suppose I didn't show it very well XD I thought about adding some flowers for scale but I was being lazy since it's only a sketch :p

Still, glad you like it! :D

Haha thank you :D I doubt she'll become a serious character of mine but she is very fun and relaxing to draw so I'd expect to see her popping up from time to time c :

That's pretty awesome dude :D I'd love to see him! Like I said to Kyoobies though, she probably won't be a very serious character or anything, just someone I doodle to relax

It's a shame about what happened to your other sketchbook D: But as you say, it's kind of a blessing in disguise because it gives you that excuse to start over with fresh ideas and motivations. Although I wouldn't be too pleased if it happened to me lmao

It is a shame, I was just getting to a respectable page count too but it's not like my work is lost or anything, it's still in my physical sketchbooks and some of it is on my tumblr for people to view, so nothing is really lost :D

Oh yeah, I never mentioned how much I love you're new sketchbook title btw! It sounds so awesome, and makes my want a cool sketchbook title as well. :lol:

Maybe I should periodically start adding superficial hype words to mine...
