    Meet Francis

    Hello, I've been recommended many to try and post my art on these forums. From childhood I've wanted to be an artist because I believe that's the only thing I'm truly good at.

    Here's a link to a completed video sketchbook that I've posted on Youtube

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cArzaGYWv8

    Do I have potential to be a better artist?

    Hey I checked out your vid your work is very stylised, I like the look. I would say you definately have potential yes, but im probably not the best for advice since im a bit young and new also. If theres one thing I could say it would be to just keep drawing everyday.
    That squirrel is cute as well haha

    During my 30 day Photoshop CS5 Trial, I made some attempts at speed painting. Like a normal person, the most experience I have with digital art is scanning pencil work and using the paint bucket tool. So as you can tell with these next pieces, they aren't exactly the most finished things. I can't truly blame the software(even if it has a WEE bit of a contributing factor) but I blame myself for not spending more time practicing doing this. :11:

    Well, here's what I've done over my monthly try-but-can't buy session of CS5

    Bah, I don't do art enough. Either I get distracted of I just lose interest. I feel as if I'm getting worse at it. I think it's just me doing all these experiments I seeing bad results, but I'm supposed to learn form my mistakes right? I'm frustrated. :57: If there is a way to not feel this sense of unfulfillment, please don't hesitate to tell me how.

    When the planets have the right alignment, I post things that are in color. Unlucky for you folks they're mostly monochrome colored sketches. I mostly used this for drawing many different figure poses.

    Nobody is good at anything, really, until they put the practice in. You can do anything, but if you love art - then pay it the time! A great start, so keep going.

    Some more background work.

    Meet Francis

    Some Characters that I've been trying to figure out some different color styles. I wanted to stick with the primary color scheme theme just to challenge myself.

    Very nice sketchbook so far! Love your style and use of colour, you've definitely got a lot of potential. I think the only way you can really get used to the feel of a tablet is to use it a lot - something you're already getting the hang of by the looks of things! Looking forward to seeing more.

    Thanks. Now that I have more time to dedicate toward working, I'm sure I'll get a better feel for my tablet eventually. It's mostly a matter of what fits for me and I'm still in that process. Thanks again though.

    Hello, I think I need to reintroduce myself as I haven't posted in two years. My name is Ryan Francis and I'm a freelance cartoonist. This is my sketchbook and I have been neglecting it. This is my most recent work as of this post.

    I've been working on this group of fairies for the week. I did this initial sketch messing about with a different art style than I've done before. So I'm mucking about with them, trying to color them in Flash. I'm going to doctor the lines soon so, I'll be working on this a little more.

    I did more things beside make a sketch and leave it this week! For once I bother trying to paint something without griping about it not looking good. Now if only I could do more to make my lines thinner.

    Wow! You have quite much work to show! I have to say the quality has quite a big range, from good to not quite so ... but I admire that, you are not afraid to fail and put a lot of effort in your practice. That is a good approach! Keep them coming!

    Thanks man! I try as I can to work on at least something everyday and post what I've done every week. It's a long slog, but I'm not a guy who gives up.

    So I spent the week doing leg studies. I felt like I could never do feet and legs correctly or connect them in a sensible way. SO that was my personal to do. Back to more the more interesting thing that I've been putting off.

    I think I accidentally skipped a week to post this stuff. No matter, things are posted anyway.
    I think I'm squandering my skill because I'm practicing the wrong things. I just don't know.
