    Danny's First Sketchbook (Learning to draw)

    Hey guys, I am new to this site and got me a wacom tablet a month ago, I really enjoy the community here and I have learned a lot from the forums, here are some of my sketches with my new wacom tablet.
    I started drawing ever since I can remember myself as a kid but never took it to a career level, I worked as a photographer and freelance graphic designer for many years but I was always inspired and with love with concept art, especially concept books like Warcraft and star wars and many others. I am fascinated by the human form and I think it's an amazing tool to have and to draw, my inspirations are Michelangelo Leonardo Da Vinchi, Frank Frazetta, Boris vallejo and others, they are true masters of anatomy.
    I love Anime and fantasy books like the lord of the rings.
    So here I am trying to get myself into the concept art industry, with good friends and artists to help around I know I can do it.
    Thanks for stopping by! ^_^

    Hi, the onion got nice colors but lacks volume on what i think would be a table, it doesn't seem on it but more levitating it's mainly gestion of shadows on the table
    Concerning the characters, they need some more studies in term of anatomy and shadings , working in that way will lead to progress for sure.

    Hey guys! thank you so much for the kind words! I am trying to paint as much as I can it's just not enough time for everything! but I will sure keep posting!
    so many ideas in my head but I lack the knowledge to create it, you know the feeling?
    Icecold you're a lot of help keep in touch and we'll do some great things together.
    I absolutely love bumskees apple thread, it gave me that old school traditional painting feeling, his use of color is phenomenal and I learn so much by painting still life I love it!
    here's some more sketches, some are oils some watercolor pencils and what not(sorry for the quality I don't have a scanner) opinions and help always welcome, thanks!

    totally know what you mean about having so many ideas but feeling unable to create them! but you should never let that stop you. keep practicing, studying, churning out those crazy things from your sweet imagination until things go your way good stuff

    What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen

Icecold about the terran marine, I am working on a whole full length comic of that genre, i am pretty excited about that! once I finish the first episode i'll surely post it here, it feels kinda epic to do something like that hehe

    Ok going forward started learning color theory, I must say a pretty involved topic it is and abit confusing... but once grasped there are no limits of what can be created.
    tried my hand on some speed painting 25 min each

    Oh, look look enviros! I'm glad to see you trying to study on different subjects, one thing that i suggest is using maybe a bit more desaturated color palette it would help alot for that gal's portrait and the pine in the foreground. Abyways, you are improving and that's noticible.

    Best wishes, Ice

    Thanks man
    I am completely unhappy with those other over saturated monstrosities, but hopefully this one looks decent? another environment speedy and few sketches.
