    A Man on a Mission.

    Hello everybody.

    I am rather new here, my names Matt and Im a student of Graphic communication. I have recently decided that I really want to start looking at concept art as a serious career path and as such have decided I need to start pushing my drawing skills again with some serious studying!

    Hopefully this should be a pretty cool place for me to progress as I get some crits and grow.

    Anywho, thats probably enough rambling for now, heres day one, piece one, Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley:

    Thanks for your time everybody

    Hi! Welcome and glad you have started on the path to improving your art. I am on the same journey as you are. Here's hoping we all survive! lol!

    Anyway, i like the emotion that you captured with this sketch and I love her face..my only comment would be that theres something about her feet/legs that doesn't feel right. But its still a wonderfully evocative sketch!

    Thankyou very much, this forum sees a lot more traffic and seems to be a lot faster paced than anywhere Ive frequented before which presumably says something about the concept art industry.

    I agree about the feet/legs, you can see where Ive erased them a few times trying to get it right but I still dont think its there, I'll get there though!

    Thanks again for the welcome and praise

    Haha yeah, its a long and tedious story which essentially boils down to how funny me and a buddy thought this could look. Definitely get some more out, i feel so invigorated to be drawing again!

    Thanks again dude

    You're right about this part of the forum being very fast-moving, but if you keep up this dailyness and go around to visit other people's sketchbooks (something of a give and you shall recieve concept here I think), more visitors will come eventually.

    Unfortunately, I can't give you that much help in the crits department, but I like the first image a lot. Try to fit some life drawing into this regime even if it means taking your sketchbook on the bus with you or etc. Good luck and keep posting!
