Hey, I’m Sarah also from the UK
Very new to the illustration game I’ve been a tattoo artist by trade for the last 4 years but recently wanted to improve my art theory and make the leap into children’s illustration.
I discovered Jake Parker’s YouTube channel and through that the 3 point podcast (which got binged extensively the last few weeks) which eventually led me to signing up here.
For the first time in a long time I’m feeling excited about my art again and I can’t wait to get to know you all a little better.
Always open for constructive criticism, here’s some of my pieces, I feel like illustration wise I’m still finding my feet. Tattoos have certain rules to follow for longevity but illustration doesn’t have those restrictions, theres still rules I know but they’re different.
I’m hoping through this to improve my tattoos and develop an illustration portfolio that will help me break into the children’s book world.
P.s sorry for rambling

@sarahlawrence Welcome, Sarah! There's no rambling in your post, hehe. These are really nice tattoo designs! The fractured skull is so masterfully done.
I'd love to see how your tattoo designs evolve through your time on SVSLearn, and how your illustration portfolio develops.
Welcome to SVS! We’re a charming bunch of nice, helpful people.
@sarahlawrence welcome to the forums! Nice tat work on your instagram. To bad you are not local, I love a good tattoo.

I am not an overt lover of skeletons - but out of the images you shared -I like the first skeleton one - the hatching and crosshatching work is really impressive
@sarahlawrence or if you ever come to the US and are in Chicago let me know
@burvantill yep the portrait is me, that’s one of my more recent pieces
