Hi i am 31 years old. I just started drawing seriously over the past 2 years. I basically quit my dayjob to be an illustrator. I joined an art school 'The One Academy' to help boost my learning curve. Thanks for ur time :)
My ultimate goal is to draw comics especially covers like my heroes Bill Sienkiewic, James Jean, Bradstreet and Mckean
My weakness are numerous.. weak composition, weak color sense, weak with imaginative works( due to heavy reliance on references ), lack of life study, lack of working knowledge of painting programs etc.

I was going to say these are very slick, remind me of Mike Butkus' movie work. Now, Im awww confoosed: Uncredited master study, pointless ripoff or unusually creative spambot?

Oh sorry this are my college assignments. This are all studies. The Sparth composition one is my Light & Mood test.

Thanks for comments. I just realized my biggest flaw i have become a tracer. From today onwards i shall work without references but from memory.

I don't think you should vow to work without references from this day on--ref can be very helpful! Just say when what you're posting is a copy, and of what, and if you want crits try to show your own work.

Not a vow but till i shake off my reliance on photo references. All my college assignments require i use a reference i am not swearing off references. Maybe i at least take my own photo references at least then i could have studied the subject lighting etc. in advance or like jason said just from life. Now i know why never from photos because of the flash lighting which is not natural.
heres more stuff.
