@Judy-Elizabeth-Wilson Thanks so much!!
Hi there! I’m Nadya and I work as a freelance illustrator in my art studio in The Netherlands. Through SVS I like to refine my art, learn new skills and brush up on fundamentals. I’m excited to be here!

RE: Portfolio website redesign, need feedback
@dorrismillerrr I do not agree completely, because I think the point is to display a range of colors and works in monochrome / black & white can definitely be among them (though not overwhelming) to show what you can do with a limited pallet and they show how well you use values.
@xin-li I think your portfolio looks very cohesive. I would add a couple of artworks and maybe add some additional color schemes in those ones. Maybe some full spreads with text placement.
I think you’re definitely on the right track on the path you’ve set out for yourself, it’s very motivating and inspiring to me!
RE: Character Practice
The colored version of the little boy did not sit right with me, so I decided to start over (still used the sketch though). I started with a monochrome version, just to get the values right. I like it better like this, and I hope I can proceed to create a colored version that looks better than the first one, preferably without linework.
I'm trying to build my kid lit portfolio, through several steps. One of them is to improve my characters and character style. I have always drawn a lot of animals, and mainly focused on anthropomorphic characters. I now try to draw 50 children (and keep improving my animal style too). To hold myself accountable I thought to create this thread to share some of my sketches and finished characters. These are not for a specific project or my portfolio, but just to practice my style.
Any feedback is appreciated
A kid playing hero. I'm really figuring out my style when drawing kids. This was the first kid I was somewhat happy with. I think the sketch turned out better than the colored version though (which I'm starting over).
RE: Little Red Riding Hood Thumbnails - Feedback wanted :)
Thank you everyone for your input and feedback! I think I may go for number 3
Little Red Riding Hood Thumbnails - Feedback wanted :)
So I’m giving myself 6-7 months to create an entirely new portfolio, kid lit illustration to be specific, and then I hope to reach out to publishers. I’m following SVS classes of course, and I would really like to get some feedback on these thumbnails. They’re preparations for a Red Riding Hood themed illustration for my portfolio.
They’re not quite there yet, I haven’t finished the composition class. But the idea popped up in my head and I wanted to put it on paper.
What do you think? Is there a possible candidate between these comps?
