    Maybe I made this thread at the wrong time, but no one's commented yet >.<

    Anyway, here is something I'm currently working on. I'm still not sure if I should continue it or just start from scratch. Either way, I'm taking a break for now.

    Enjoy!

    Hey hun, sometimes it just hapens for no reason, people dont comment so dont stress over it

    Anyway i can see you have a basic understanding of the digital medium all i can say is for you to keep practicing anatomy and value, because without values basicly it will be very hard for you to color even i you kick butt at drawing!
    Oh and dont blur your image so much, make the strokes clean and smooth.

    You should check out other sections of conceptart for anatomy, enviromental, etc. references, tutorials and more!
    Oh and go to conceptart's weekly and daily activities to keep yourself active and improving in your art!

    Ill attach some things i have collected and you can find them usefull.
    Note: i didnt make them and i dont know the authors for i saw them a long time ago and cant remember them, just a note tho .

    Best wishes honey

    Ana

    Thanks so much for the advice, Artastical. I do need to study anatomy a lot more, and I have been. I'm also working hard on my understanding of value. I've just finished a semi-final draft of a new drawing which I think will be my strongest piece thus far.

    Here it is! (Also, I have to brag that I did not use any reference material for it >.<)

    Thanks, Icedearth. I am very happy with the layout of that last image. I decided to go ahead and color it, so here it is. Tell me what you all think

    The colored version of your last picture is much better than the original, your stuff looks great.

    This is a concept I'm working on for a local art show that is happening on Halloween. It is a terrifying beast

    Here is a new WIP. It's for a small contest in a local art group. The theme is "Primal Rage."

    Most people who grew up playing videogames in the 90's will immediately think of the SNES fighting game in which dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals (and a giant gorilla) are pitted against each other in mortal combat.

    I, however, can't seem to get the movies 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later. The crazy cooties that everyone seems to be catching in those movies is called "Rage," so I can't get that out of my head.

    It's been forever and a half since I last updated this thread. I really want to start being more proactive on CA.org, so I will continue what I started long ago!

    The order is chronological, with the first being most recent.
