Thread: Some stuff
August 1st, 2009 #1
Hello, I'm new. I wasn't sure where to make an introduction thread, but since most of these pics are doodles or WIPs I figure this place is as good as any.
I'm a mere noob at art, but I hope to improve greatly. I bet I'll learn a lot from this site. See you around.

Nice drawings but I suggest doing more sketches from life before trying to do the gruesome pictures, this will make everything look so much more real.

Hi NightHerald! I'm digging the subject matter - beasties and Warhammer stuff is love.
Try doing figure/anatomical studies from life and photos, they'll help a lot. Study also how armor is worn on the body, and how shapes look like and work together from different angles.
For coloring, harder brushes often yield better results and are more effective in conveying a sense of texture, especially for hard objects like metal.
Don't stop drawing!

n00dles: Thank you, I'm well aware that I need more of that. But, doesn't hurt to be reminded from time to time. Thanks.
crossmirage: Thanks. Yeah, Warhammer is the shit. It's actually a large part of what got me attempting "serious" art in the first place.
I plan on doing that a lot more than I've done so far.
Don't stop drawing!

Start drawing more from real life, as others have said. It doesn't matter how well your stuff is "painted" if the drawing they're based off of hasn't been executed well.
Doctors heal you, Artists immortalize you.
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.
The usual staples for anatomy:

Hey, thanks! I am, or was at least. Yeah I've seen some of his work, good stuff
Updates, yes.. I see it's 2 years since last time, has it really been that long? Guess it's crunch time now.
