Join 500,000+ Artists
Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
after lurking for a bit on people here and in the forum in general i decided to finally open a sketchbook
a little about myself I'm 19 years old, right now I'm studying for a P.E degree in mechanic engineering, I've been drawing since like 4th grade but been seriously putting myself in it for the past half a year or so and I aspire to become a better artist and to try my best to get in to the industry which is why I came here, in order to get as best as I can
and that's pretty much it
some of my finished work from the last few months
my most recent one from a couple of days ago
and some W.I.P's
hopefully i will update it every week or two

I love your subject matter ( if that's wat it's called)
The subjects you draw?... what your characters are doing and the style; very dreamy and fantasy.
I think you need to clean your lines more. Right now, some of them look a bit muddy... the first one doesn't look muddy at all though. I really liek that one ^^

Very good so far, you have an excellent knack for detail. Your anatomy on some of the more complete characters is very well done. Keep up the good work!
hey dude, i see some great potential here, tell us more about yourself, how old are you ? what are you studying ? keep up the good work and post some more.
@chelli - thanks for the comment and the tip I'll keep in mind about the lines and muddy look
@Icedearth15876 - thank you and will do

Your paintings are looking good! Id love to seem some concepts as in line drawings! Or do you use the painting process as a concept drawing as well? Keep up the good work!
@vatsel - i've sent you the pm
@shambok - thanks man you bet i'll keep up the work
here are some sketches most of them are from photos and some are from imagination
and some fishies
and a painting from a photo
thanks for the support guys
@Jama - never thought you're an aero space engineer, no wonder you have an amazing eye for technical and mechanical painting you truly are an amazing person Jama
thanks for the encouragment
well here are a couple of studies from photos i did today and yesterday the first took about 2~2.5 hours and the second was 1~1.5 hours
and here's a thunderdome challenge i began but unfortunatly didn't finish during the 60 min limit because the battery of my laptop ranout but i decided to finish it anyway

Off to a good start! I can't really give crits on colour. Your line drawings would read better if there was more line width variation, use broken lines more and use changes in line thickness and consistency to show overlaps and change in value. If you have two objects of similar value overlapping, the line you draw to separate them should look "weak", save the heavy lines for deep creases, and sharp changes from light to shadow. I like the imagination stuff, looks like you already have good control of photoshop!
@vatsel - yeah it's easy to lose the proportions when you paint from a photo but i'll do my best to not lose them next time
@manmadegod - thanks for the advices on the lines part i'll take it into account in the future and i'm using paint tool sai not photoshop
well here are three creatures i did in a couple of hours or so, so enjoy
@rbeek - thanks for the comment and about the creatures saw a video about 'em and had to give a shot
@vatsel - thanks i'll tease you all i want haha.

@Istmin52 - I think it might be your computer there, thanks anyway
@Dy.laneA - thanks, and I think you should do more animals it helps to understand how mother nature did her work.
@vatsel - I'll definitly watch my perspective on my future stillifes
here's the final version of the stillife, you're more than welcome to crit and comment so that I can improve with my future ones
Regular, varied, detailed..so there's not much i can critique, i can only cheer you on to keep the pace!
Only, perhaps a few more detailed figure studies, or muscle studies..so bridgman maby?
Hey there oren, glad for the comment at my sb so i decided to return the favor yehh, lookin good! The photo studies and still-lifes are coming along nicely, thought you should pay more attention to the edges, they all seem very soft now, lacking all the hard ones. Also more highlights there and there would bring them up more alive! keep it on!
