    Dear Sir/Madam, i can draw, hire me please!

    Hi guys, I just finished a uni degree majoring in illustration and graphic design. I am more interested in illustration (particularly concept art). I havn't been drawing long (a little over 2 years now) and my skills obviously arent good enough to make a career out of drawing yet.
    I have decided to attack this problem head-on and have purchased myself 500 sheets of A3 paper, and have started to get cracking on drawing!!!
    This thread is for me to keep track of my studies, while also, hopefully some of you talented people will offer me some critiques/advice etc.



























    Cheers for looking. CRITS WELCOME!Attachment 973538

    Cheers mate. Hopefully get through all 500 in the next few months!

    Most of these are referenced (besides the sketchy doodles). I'm not confident enough to draw entirely from imagination yet.

    Hi people

    Got up early this morning and did some drawings.

    This one is of an Australian politician Peter Garrett, with Kevin Rudd hiding behind his back.
    I was going to draw press mics in front of him, but the idea came around a little late. I'd like to develop this further into a type of editorial illustration

    Looks like you've got yourself into gear so congrats on that. Now you've just got to keep moving forward. It's a long haul but the payoff is worth it. Keep doing those studies.

    Study, practice, post, repeat = recipe to success. :painting

    Hello Anthony.
    It is a very good thing that you discovered that you are so much interested in illustration. I see that you are determined and that you could accomplish anything that you decide right now.
    Considering that you are drawing for only two years now, your advancement is humongous.
    You are most probably eQuipped with a bunch of drawing tutorials and books already, so I will not molest you with the links.
    As I going through your sketchbook, I can see that you are mastering very good the correct lines at pencil drawing, and I very much like how you lay the shadows down. Actually , my goal is pretty the same , to learn to put the shadows on pencil drawings like you do. On some of your sketch pages, it is visible that you have an outstanding story telling sense and a great imagination.
    On a few drawings there are some anatomy problems, nothing serious, but don't we have all problems with anatomy? Anatomy is something that we all should train and improve all the time in our art careers.
    The digital paintings: I am admiring your skills here, you are excelling with the perspective handling and I am not a pro, nor a very good artist, but in my humble opinion I think that you have managed the color combination to lay down pretty well. In one word, your environmental studies are amazing.
    Hope you will post more and that you will improve even more here. conceptart.org is just amazing.

    Hi fellas, cheers for the encouraging words.

    Plissken - Cheers mate - you're right about the anatomy, and although it may not be serious issues, i really need to knock that information into my brain. You should see me try to draw a figure without a reference It is aweful. haha.

    pauloricardo - cheers dude. Holy crap! Checked your website out. Love your batman image.


    Did this today. part of a series of images im doing based on 1920s immigration to the US. I referenced an old photo of the Manhattan skyline from that era. I added a few elements including the roof tops and steam boats in the harbour.

    Acrylic and ink on illustration board
    loving this stuff more than the digital work ive been doign for so long

    You have such a wonderful sketchbook. I just love your drawings. You have great lines.
    It's very good that you use different mediums also.
    All I can say more is keep drawing / painting and you'll achieve whatever you plan to.

    Metal Fingers - Cheers mate. Im glad my anatomy is improving, but i definately need to hit the Loomis books again.

    S.Elena - Thanks. Im trying to expose myself to as many mediums as i can. Im really enjoying mixing inks and acrylic at the moment

    WIP

    I'm starting a graphic novel (for fun) and have started inking some images digtially... so i guess its not really inking. You know what i mean
    These are two of 8 frames from a page spread.





    Also, decided to call this bad boy quits. My original vision didn't turn out, so i think i'll give it another shot later.



    Hi-res clean iamge of the painting posted a few posts back (sorry about v-scroll)

    I printed off waht i had started doing digitally onto good quality cartridge paper and inked the rest traditionally. I felt i had more control and didnt need to aim for perfection (like i always feel i have to with digital). Man, inks are freaking awesome.
    Critique away. Any areas which dont work, dont show form etc i'd like to hear





    Dudes, im having trouble with colouring my inks. anyone know of any good tutorials on selecting a colour palette for comics? I know it basically comes down to understanding of colour theory, but many comics use the oddest colours which end up looking natural. Id post my tests, but they are totally shit.

    anyway, heres a test thrown together showing my work in order of sequence so far. The white boxes are for narrative text (havn't finished yet) and there will be speach bubbles too.
