please tell me what you think and how I can improve. these can also be found on my deviantart page along with the rest of my work:
New images being added to portfolio on deviantart, these will also be posted here. Any opinion of my work is greatly appreciated
I like your style of work. You're very good with a pencil! I also see much improvement in the switch to digital after sketching - very good.
My encouragement would be to keep studying lighting (I myself need to do this ) and keep drawing! I'd like to see more.
It looks pretty cool from what I can see, but the images are so large they're going off my page (and I have a 1280x1024 resolution!) Maybe try scaling them down to 700px at the largest resolution so we can take in the full grandeur of your image all at once?
From what I can see, you have a pretty awesome knack for character designs and interesting costumes. I know it's tempting to put all of your efforts into the characters and little into the backgrounds (heck I do that myself sometimes!), but I think you could improve by thinking of your images as whole designs instead of using photomanipulation to fill the space.
Think to yourself "how does this background add to the atmosphere, mood, and narrative story of my character?" Sometimes things are meant NOT to have backgrounds, like character sketches and character concept art, but if you want to show a greater range of skill and emotion in your work, start including more thought out settings for your folks (even if they're only implied, a few hints of a meaningful setting can do so much for making a work 'pop')
Keep drawing and bringing us more! You've got wild potential
Agreed. keep the thumbnails small, so those who have slower connections dont get deterred by your large image sizes.
but keep posting! srsly!
