    Here is a little Tank Girl study love the comics and wanted to practice a different style I loved it! I used a black and white line image on the comic for ref and then added color afterwards as just a little fun experiment. I may try more pictures like this.

    Ok so I have been thinking alot about my new years resolution and how I will make the most of this next year, and I have decided instead of all these hundreds of things I wish to do I am only going to focus on one, and that is to improve my art. This is what I want to do as a career and I have been lazy about it no doubt about that I spend way too much time doing anything BUT art and that is a big no no. So my goal is to get at least a sketch a day out limit myself to 1hour long studies and when I have down time draw no ifs no buts just DRAW. I am determined to get better at my art and I thank everyone who supports me, I hope one day I can reach my goal of working full time as a successful independent artist.



    so fitting that this first wip will be of a level 1 hero

    More figures and more on my study, I have come to find out I am actually not analyzing my studies like I should be, there fore all I am really doing is copying the pictures, so I am trying to actually learn from the paintings I am doing. I have been doing some loomis head studies in my sketchbook at work and am trying to look at this study in terms of the planes of the face so I did a quick paint over of the picture to try and understand the lighting. I will need to do some value and planes studies to try and understand more of it all. But I feel like I have had my eyes closed and now finally opening them. Only more good things to come!Name:  figurestudy12.2.jpg

    hello there endeadartist ,that last post is defintely the direction you should go understanding versus copying,try going back to the basics-simple perspective,good measuring,simple shaped value studies,it might not be the most interesting but you have to master the simple stuff before you jump to the complex subjects,keep working!

    Cool paintings, drawings! You have some skill with grayscale painting! Your figures are solid too. I like how well your draw extreme gestures, like the ones doing martial arts!

    Beautiful, keep doing art!

    Great stuff, good to see you're working on your imagination stuff a lot.
    Keep going with figures studies.
    Careful with your lines tho, use the brush opacity or erase the lines and redo until you got the right one because you end up with a lot of lines for the same shape, and in the end you don't know which one is the right one and which are wrong. And try and fit in some shorter studies for gesture and flow, if you haven't read it already, get your hands on the book Force. The sketches really show what the author tries to explain.

    I can see improvement in those gestures too, they're definitely starting to look more fluid. I also recommend "Force" - it is written by Mike Mattesi.

    Nice work with your latest value studies too. Some of the highlights look a little too bright, but the light/shadow divide on her face is nice and clear. The soft/hard edges are a real improvement on your earlier work too.

    Hey guys so i am in a funk as of late just need to do a little rant, my day job has been affecting me, its a crappy warehouse job and everyday I hate it more and more. But enough complaining I have my goals I want nothing more than to become a successful concept artist. Its like an itch that I can't scratch, and I just want to get there, but it takes time and I am willing to put in the hours. Sometimes everything just feels a little overwhelming, I cant blame only my job, I blame myself. I have alot of these bursts of energy and determination and go full force then its like I hit a wall. But I need to push through it need to break through these walls and keep up the momentum. I feel like I am sooo close to some sort of breakthrough and I can just feel like good things will be coming soon, even though everything seems crappy and some days I doubt myself, but I remember that life throws bad at you and you just need to take each hit and pick yourself up and fight back. I have my plan that I am trying to stick too and I am going full force with renewed energy with this yet again and the next time I hit a wall I plan on just going right through the bastard and keep going. No more walls will keep me down and I will push as hard as ever before and I WILL reach my goals I refuse to do anything else. This is my passion and my love, to live one day where I can say I love what I do and I am a concept artist is the goal I wish to achieve, I dont have a dream studio or project to work for, my dream is to do what I love and make that my job. Where I am now with my life is a dark murky tunnel and right now I can see a dim glowing light, my journey is far from over but I plan on pushing harder, and getting to where I want to go. I am willing to do what it takes and I WILL succeed one day, I will settle for nothing less. Anyways thats all for my rant it felt a little good to get this out and just vent. If anyone who reads this is in a similar position in their life I just want to let you know you are not the only one and remember everyone starts somewhere and pushing yourself is a task all in it own and never give up on your dreams, I know too many people who had the potential to do great things and now squander it and do nothing. But thanks to everyone who knows the struggle and is kind enough to share, and one day I will see everyone at the end of the tunnel.

    side note small update I have a bunch of traditional sketches I need to upload.
