    I WILL become PRO in a year ( Or die trying ) - The journey of a devoted artist

    Attachment 1799371GO FURTHER FOR MORE RECENT DRAWINGS - YOU HAVE ENTERED A PAINTERLY ADVENTURE


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    This is a cry , a message , an ovation towards men & women alike.

    The journey never ends. A single pebble tossed towards your goal is a sign , inscribed unto the destination. Peering unto the last point of success , of achievement , of ambition and of dreams.

    Do you have a dream ? I do. In fact , I have many dreams , yet that internal cry , springs out , sprouting bravely , only attempting to flinch you and to get your attention.



    " 100000 more to go , 10000 more to go , 1000 more to go , 100 to go , 10 more to go , 1 more " ... you say.

    Your journey must not be a blink ,a similarity of time, not descending towards a point but ascending towards incomparable beauty.

    I say , 5 more ! and then some. 10 more , and then some , 100 more and then courage becomes an outcry of confidence, of inner strength.



    And I say unto you ! 5 MORE ! 5 MORE ! 5 more - And the journey continues - To a familiar place , a paved road , carved with your passion.

    My name is Andrew and for a minute , take my road and accompany me.



    When I say I will become PRO in a year it means as close to becoming a full fledged artist that CAN work in the industry and has the necessary skills to join in with other artist. Now , you might think I'm bluffing , but I'm sensing it , and If it doesn't happen , at least I tried and if it's not one year, then two. But for now , this deadline reminds me everyday that I have to work harder in order to achieve my dreams.

    I am willing to work my nickels off in order to become the artist I so aspire to become !


    Follow the signs.


    * Dreams are but sparks ; Actions forge reality *

    - Andrew.

    Hello there, i like your sketches in the first post best. You got some wild imagination

    I think you should work a bit on getting cleaner lines. And when coloring, try to use a hard-edged brush. That will make the painting less blurred and more defined. Sorry, i am not really good with words in english :p

    Keep it up

    Welcome to CA, and no worries, you will make plenty of friends in no time!
    Posting up a sketchbook here is the first step to greatness ;p
    As Gelvin suggested, neaten up those lines; practice drawing them without picking up the pencil so often.
    Dont forget to study anatomy, there is plenty of reference on the web and in books - plenty suggest checking out posemaniacs and stuff by Loomis and Bridgman.
    Keep posting

    What jump right at me, when I saw your art is that your renderings are way to soft and can use more tonal value like darks and lights. Also try to practice your line quality and ananomty. However you chose interesting subjects and compositions in your work.

    Critiques on my work always welcome!!

    I love that you are doing just the lines on paper. Oh gosh I remember my instructor from fountain 1 drawing class, had us stand there for a whole class period doing that ( which is about 3 hours give or take).

    Critiques on my work always welcome!!

    Hey people of CA, "Is it really that time again?" ^^ half life 2 quote lol ,well ,hello all and I already missed posting here ,here are some updates for today,a still life from a photo,something done in photoshop.

    I guess it's a wip cuz i didn't really finish it ,again a still life but now from life ,some light studies and a drawing.I really really really want to improve and I need giga crits and slaps on the face to straighten up and I will really appreciate it.Seeing all these great sketchbooks on CA inspires me and drives me to go on! Here are the updates then ...
