Maybe it won't be such an issue once you get around to painting it, but the details look a little overwrought to me, especially the wrinkles. Maybe cut down on the lines so the whole form becomes...
Ah, I love the Frazetta-style piece with the Vikingesque warrior! I can't wait to see it finished already!
The bird and crocodile head sketches are my favorites. I wish I could give you a more detailed critique, but all a newbie like me can say is keep on going!
I'm really digging the facial portraits, especially in post #76 (though his face does taper a bit too much near the bottom). Keep on going!
Sorry for not posting here for ages again. I still draw a lot, but honestly I've treated it as a leisurely hobby in the last few months. Ergo, I don't think I've improved very much since I last...
In all honesty, I rather like how you've rendered the face here, especially the highlighting on the nose.
Which is why I don't visit this place regularly anymore.
The topic popped into my head after I read this DA journal entry by Tom Preston, in which he says something vaguely similar, namely that not every artist is interested in improving their technical...
To be honest, I don't intend to base a whole career off my drawing. For me it's simply an amateurish hobby. If I wanted to sell my art or get into any kind of industry (e.g. comic books), I would...
I thought so, but the impression I get from forums like this is that there's a lot more emphasis on realism and aesthetics than simple functionality. Or have I misunderstood something?
I have the opposite concern about one-trick ponies: there are certain things I enjoy drawing very often (it's probably a symptom of my autistic tendency towards obsessiveness), but I'm scared that...
This might unnerve a few people, but let me confess this: when I draw, I'm not necessarily interested in photorealism. Often what compels me to draw is not a desire to dazzle people with realism so...
If mammals evolved fur for insulation, I would think the controlled use of fire would suffice to select for the thinning of human hair.
If it makes you feel any better, I'm 22 and I envy your skill. Fortunately, both of us still have many years left in our lives.
I have no problem with feathers on raptors or T. Rex. It's not like the animals would have been any less badass with them. Anyone who thinks otherwise is being superficial.
I consider myself more...
This Allosaurus sketch would be unremarkable except that I was using an actual plastic Allosaurus toy as a reference. I don't mean a photograph of a toy Allosaurus, but a live toy I was holding in my...
I would appreciate that, thank you.
All your stuff is good, but my favorites are probably the forest ones. They're beautiful.
It depends on how hard you look. I simply type in a subject I like into the search engine and favorite the stuff I like. It also helps to watch artists you like.
I really dig the armored guy in the opening post!
I find bases annoying too. The funny thing is that they're almost always drawn in an anime/manga style. Why is that?
Love the animal sketches!
I love your most recent painting with the ceratopsians!
Portrait of Julius Caesar, the most famous of the Republican Roman statesmen.
His nose was impossible to get right. The facial features were drawn using a bust of him as a reference...
Love the arm studies!
