Hi everyone. After hearing some great things about ConceptArt.org from friends, I decided to sign up. From what I've seen here, it looks like this is the place to get some excellent, honest critiques, and I'd love to start participating in some of the events. I still have a lot to improve upon (don't we all!) but I'll try my best to help other artists with comments and critiques as well.
A little about me - I'm a 23-year old graduate student in the M.F.A. illustration program at the Savannah College of Art and Design (Atlanta campus). I tend to lean towards fantasy illustration, and the most prominent subjects in my work are birds and bird-inspired creatures, primarily birds of prey.
My biggest weakness, as you will readily see, is anatomy. Any suggestions with anatomy will be greatly appreciated, as I tend to be simply blind to the human figure, no matter how much I study the figure, practice drawing the figure, etc.
Below are a few of my finished works. I will be using the thread continuously as a sketchbook, to display sketches and works in progress for suggestions and discussion, for those who wish to help.
