Hey thanks for checking out my first post. My names Rafail, Ruffy for short, I’m from Cape Town South Africa, I’m 19 years old studying Film and Media Production at the University of Cape Town. I’ve been checking out the amazing art this community has been posting for a while now and have been flabbergasted by the works produced, it inspired me to take more interest in drawing. I doodle alot and have finished a few sketches over the past few years but have never attempted to treat drawing as a technical skill that can be honed and improved. South Africa’s concept art scene is pretty glum, our gaming industry is non existent and its hard to find schools that focus on illustration and drawing but through posts I hope to receive constructive advice for a budding artist hoping to bring his skills up to a professional level thanks for your time and help..
This first post is a sketch and quick color done on a tablet I saved up to buy… it killed my pocket but I knew it was a must.. The sketch isn’t exactly finished but critique is welcome.
*sorry the resolution is so bad, I have a bad connection
