Starting from scratch, journal of progression
Hey guys, how are you all doing?
My name is Jiri Krewinkel. I'm 18 years old and from the Netherlands.
I've been lurking this forum and cgsociety for quite a while now, as well as random Devianart pages and I was always fascinated by these pieces that are posted here. Never did it occur to me I could be creating something like that. Well now I want to step my game up and get into the world of illustration.
I am COMPLETELY 100% new to illustration and concept art. I've read that Andrew Loomis is a great resource, so I went and got some of his books. I also have a WACOM Bamboo medium sized tablet to draw with.
The plan is to post my progress in here, just everything I create and hopefully see some good progression!
So please, give me all the critique you have on my pieces, as this will only help me grow.
You all seem like a friendly bunch so I'm looking forward to participating in this community.
Having said that, here's my very first piece.
I had no goal going into it whatsoever, just wanted to practice drawing a good face. From what I can see his mouth is way to small, and his eyes are very anime- and girl-like. Also his hairline doesn't seem to be at the right place.
