    The Path of Alpha

    erm, ahah >.<; I've gathered the willpower to post a thread like this.Erm..where to start ok, I've been lurking here o.o everyday for a week now, tho I've been imtimitadted to post a thread because I see no anime artist here so I figured anime aren't wasn't allowed here, still not sure..but I'll just post a little sketch for now I should be able to post some notebook sketches tmw when I get back my scanner. Since all I see is irl sketches o.o mostly and I love 'em.

    I'm 15 and I'm hoping to attend a good art school im america o.o somewhere in phili or close to it since that's we're my aunt lives,and No I do not live in america I live in jamaica.

    well also hoping to make some friends and I hope to get my art eaten alive here O:! that way I know I have to improve.

    also >.< seeing all the awesome Realism art makes me want to swtich art styles lawl,but I'll stick to anime.
    Also I use paintool sai to color and sketch, Anyways else here use it?

    The Path of Alpha
    ok now this one is really old D: my anatomy improved a bit more I think so..D:!

    Good start! That nose anatomy sheet looks great. Keep doing studies, working on your anatomy and proportions, because your work has a lot of potential!

    Cheers

    your studies are nice and a pretty good sense of colour
    what i would suggest is definitely use larger strokes, and yes, THEN go small; the trick is to see squares, circles, etc. of colours and to block those out first~
    and don't use the colour picker in case that you are..it could get really tempting (being so much faster when you want to speed things up) but trust me, it's a whole lot better to not pick;
    plus you'll feel better when you're done with it

    and post more!
    take care~

    the landscape and animal paintings are cool, but you may want to try starting with value instead of jumping straight into color. Try taking your polar bear reference image and removing the color and then doing a new painting of it in just black and white, concentrating on just getting your values correct and not having to worry about color at all. good luck ;3

    Wow o: people care lol.
    Abrodos : thanks a lot, like your stuff too.
    BlackDelphin: thanks, I'll remember the blocking out thing, and yeah I don't normally use Picker but I thought I had to D: since its color study. I like using my own colors xD

    StarBelly: I think I get what you mean O: I will most certainly try it, seems hard tho.
    And here's an old notebook sketch. Haven't been able to sketch anything all day, and I'm leaving for the airport in 2 hours >.< I'll have those speedpaints up soon.

    and always try to get this finished feel
    i mean thats my new rule . it just give you this feeling of acomplishment and it feels right
    because i did alot of sketchy sketches before and than its just not art you know

    Your work seems to be getting better, keep up those studies and maybe try some random poses on posemaniacs, it will help, keep working hard

    nice stuff so far! I like that you practice backgrounds and stuff.
    I think you should work a little on you hues which would give you pics
    more contrast. It really helps to sometimes save a black and white version of your painting while you do it. So you can see where you need more darkness/light.
    Keep 'em coming!

    Your lights/shadows and rendering are looking really good, as well as your backgrounds. Those skies are sweeet Keep experimenting, and don't forget anatomy, especially on heads. Keep up the good work. Cheers!
