Subject title: Victoria's doodle book

Hi! Just recently joined the forum. :D I guess I finally have the guts to start posting my sketches. I'm a kind of a shy person and this is a bit new to me. Sharing my stuff. :roll: Anyway, here's some roughs I've done. I'll upload newer sketches later, just thought I put something here to start off.
I do my digital drawings in Gimp, using a Bamboo Splash with my Macbook Pro.

Felt like doing buildings

An OC of mine. Not that great in coloring xP in my opinion. Proportions and perspective is off too.

Image
A very messy pic I did of another OC of mine. He's from a story I'm creating called "Falling Reign”

Image
Something cold and snowy

Image
Like the colors in this one :)

random drawing :P

Yup, guessed that was one of the issues. Just don't know how to put it proportionally into perspective properly ;) . Well, it's okay if you don't know, thanks :D .

Did a sketch in my sketchbook and decided to color it. Juvia Lockser from Hiro Mashima's manga series called "Fairy Tail". I like Juvia she's so silly, she's so very over dramatic in her love for Gray :D . She's one of my favorite characters in the series. Drew this for fun. This Monday I'll be starting my first year of college, so excited and nervous. Yay :) .
