I have been reading this forum for a while now, and have been astounded by the amazing artwork, as well as the helpful/useful advices.
However, only now do I have the courage to start a sketchbook. I aim for a career in as a concept artist. I know I still need a lot of improvement, including digitial painting, environment, composition...and many other.
I'm looking forward to any advice you have, as well as some mentoring if you got time.

A few more quick sketches in the morning. Still need to work on drawing face, the face on the figures are really poor. Hope if anyone got sometime to mentor me on drawing face. Many thanks
Grafguy - Thank you for you comment, you are right the chest is too blurry, I used layer of the blurred image and masking it over the original, I guess I put too much blur on it, this is the original, without blur.
Hi UGLYDUDE! I like your drawings a lot especially the way you draw them... some of them are looking almost realistic! I'm impressed by your faces and I have one advice for the last picture, you should add some flakes on that dragon and I think the dragons are a little bit glossy also the clifs behind! You should and more! Keep up the good work I wish you luck!
Thank you for your kind comments and help, I will try my best to keep this update.
clanlord - You are right, by me trying to put a glow on the dragon, he end up looking a bit glossy, I also did put scales/flakes on him but I think the opacity might be too low to see. I will have another go on it later on.
Again many thanks your taking your time to view and comments on my work, much appreciated
Hey, nice stuff you got here going.
I see all your sketches are done digitally, may i ask why? I believe you should never let pencils behind, there's still so much more to explore within that field.
Also, keep doing plenty of portrait sketches [laying down just some basic shades if you will] and plenty of poses, they will really be helpful.
Just a few quick sketches in the morning to start thing up
_^SlayeR^_: Thank you very much for your comment and advise, I really appreciate it . Regarding the digital medium, it is because I only just start using Wacom tablet, and felt that I'm don't have enough control or understanding of various affect Photoshop brushes, so I'll try to practice on it a much as possible. I'm still a believer in traditional mediums as well, and enjoy using paper and canvas. I just got a new sketch book, so will post some image as soon as I get my scanner sorted.
I know I still have much to learn and still seeking a mentor. There are many areas I need improving but the first part I like to focus on is character concept art. If anybody have a little bit of spare time to mentor me, I would much appreciate.
Sorry for the lack of update, been working on a few images but internet was down and couldn't upload them up. A few sketches on the Spaceship and the Deep computition. Any tips, advices and critisms are well.
Sorry for the lack of update in the last months. Here are some images that I have been working during that time. I just trying a different painting method with the second image, hope it is alright, would be grateful for any crits and advices.
