    I just wanna draw for a living...

    I've been looking at these forums for about a year now. I've really enjoyed looking at the fantastic artwork that people post, but I never really felt good enough to post myself.

    I'm beginning to realize that I won't get better until I get some criticism. So feel free to tear apart my work, because all I want is improvement.

    I've been drawing since I was ten, and very influenced by comics. I just started digital painting a year or two ago. Color is very difficult for me to understand (I've been drawing with pen and ink my whole life, all I see in the world is lines both black and white).

    Thanks for any comments you have. I really appreciate it.

    (Lotta work here, hope you don't mind)

    That last painting looks good! Just watch out with the guy on the left's head. He's missing the back part of his head. The features of the guy with the red shirt look warped, flip the canvas during painting to be able to spot and correct things like that.

    I like the pic with the monster in the cave =) Keep it going!

    You seem to have nice skills mate.
    Definitely keep studying anatomy,then focus in mastering values.Color will come after you understand values
    Anyway just keep studying,and you will reach the title of your sketchbook, it will be an interesting adventure ehehehe
    And welcome to CA

    i like the anatomical studies in your latest post. the construction will help with the rest of your figures, i.e. the drawn woman in black looks a lot stiffer with a different weight distribution than the photo ref. that said, you're a lot further than i am in a lot of areas, good job!

    you dont truly look at the picture refs that you study from. I see people do this all the time, they look at the picture but don't analyze it then they start drawing without knowing what is correct and lines up versus what you and many others do which is plop down colors and forms. Take your time with these pictures make sure things line up, for example the babies upper lips slightly turns upright, in your painting it turns downwards. You need to develope an eye for that, and it takes time.

    erdbeerfeldheld - Thanks a lot. I started flipping the canvas. I've seen other artists do it before, but I never realized how handy it actually was. It's weird to see how out of symetry your drawings can be.

    PhoenixGR - I really appreciate the compliment.

    kingkostas - Thanks for the advice. All this past week, I've been focusing on my anatomy and re examining how I draw. I've seen a lot of improvement. I'll be working more on value this week.

    rhymeswithpuck - Thanks!

    Krato - You were absolutely right. I was just drawing how I've always drawn, occasionally looking at the photo. I wasn't really studying it and understanding proportions. Thanks.

    Also, can someone explain to me how to have an image next to this thread topic? I know it's a super newb thing to ask, but I've been looking and can't figure it out...

    nice studies, you have to attach an image from ca if you want it too appear as your thread header. Just go to edit then "manage attachments" which should be below the edit box.

    Here's some work stuff I'm doing for a client. He's incredibly vague, and says he wants a t-shirt character design based off this Brahma head he has. I've been throwing sketches and illustrations at him, but all he gives me are single sentence comments and 50x50px thumbnail examples.
