Sketchbook Review: Pou's Sketch Snap

Artist: Pou
Sketchbook Name: Pou's Sketch Snap

Artwork


This is one of those sketchbooks primarily devoted to studies and growth. That said the improvement in this sketchbook is quiet impressive.

Growth





The transformation in this sketchbook is fantastic. Whilst Pou was fairly competent with line art her shading did have a somewhat muddy feel to it. With in a few pages of this sketchbook the muddiness has been dealt with. There are afew occasions where the tones just don't quite gel together but that said her work has massively improved. One thing I will say is I would like to see more personal works and not just studies.


Presentation


The start of this Pou's sketchbook has probably too many images in a small space. Thankfully she has adopted a more sustainable pace. Images are decently cropped. Whilst there are no really outstanding presentations here nothing is offensively arranged. I would like Pou to try experimenting with presentation and layout to make her work stand out.

Interaction


Pou makes great effort to interact with anyone commenting on her sketchbook. This alone makes it a sketchbook worth visiting.

Other Points


The sketchbook is a great start. I do feel if Pou wants to grow and improve that she should try some art challenges. They will help train her creativity and get out of the trap of just posting studies. She may also want to try experimenting with styles.

Score 7/10

Great sketchbook with plenty of room for growth. Pou should be proud with how far she has come in a short time.

+ Lots of studies
+ Vast improvement from when she started
+ Good interaction with comments

-Not many personal pieces
-Occasionally slips back into old muddy habits (as many of us do from time to time)
-Still fairly small sketchbook (only 3 web pages)
