Hello there CA. I am a refugee from DA, looking for a bunch of people who DO NOT think anime is the epitome of all that is art. Don't get me wrong, I love watching anime, and the style is fun, but lately it's been getting me down how much people will prefer a picture simply because it of an anime persuasion.
Ironically enough, I started drawing more seriously by copying anime, and learning from it. A few years ago I started moving away from the style and now I strive for more realism than anything else.
Please take a look at my work and let me know what you think needs improving. I'm trying to be better every time I paint a new picture, so a lot of my stuff will be better the more recent it is, which is no surprise really.
I've uploaded a few of the images I've completed recently.
Something like a speedpaint...or a quick painting. A character I made up based on KotOR's Revan
Excellent works there, the last speedpaint is freakin awesome. Keep up the good work.
Thanks icedearth, I should really visit this thread and update more often
This is a work in progress of a personal character. Vampire, same character as my avatar actually =P

Hi, great work, one question, how do you achieve the skin texture on the male elve on top of this page? I'll really appreciate if you tell me
Hello Morgalahan. You have some interesting stuff going on here.
I would love to see you progress on this SB.
If I may, I would like to suggest using more hard-edged brushes.
Airbrushing is a perfectly legit technique but it does give one's work a look of less confidence. Also think about using a hint of blue and green for your skin colors.
It might help! Keep it up!!
Thanks for the comments and taking a look. As to hard edged brushes, I use them when I'm working in photoshop, but I suppose the natural blending properties of most of the Painter brushes I use make it seem like it's airbrushed. As it happens, I havent painted with the soft airbrush in years, since I learned how to use photoshop properly
I'll try the blue and green for the skin, thanks
