I'm 17 and I've been drawing since I was a young kid, I love drawing, and I'm always aiming to improve my abilities.
The areas I need the most improvement on are Anatomy( I do have quite a few books on the subject, which I use a lot), color, and composition. I have a few books from Hogarth, Drawing the human head, drawing dynamic hands, dynamic figure drawing, dynamic wrinkles and drapery, dynamic light and shade, also some Loomis books(which I still need to read more of) and a small library of Inspiration on my computer and bookshelves.
I mainly like to draw character concepts, mostly in the sci-fi genre.
Artist that inspire me are: Frank Frazetta, Moebius, Tanino Liberatore, James Bama, N.C Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, Frank Cho, Adam Hughes, Bernie Wrightson, Burne Hogarth, John Buscema, Craig Mullins, Michelangelo, Katsuhiro Otomo to name some.
I'm on Deviantart, but I recognize that the place is not not good for improving, seeing as though pretty much all the comments are "That's cool" etc. But it is a good place to start and get a bit of recognition.
you can see more of my stuff in my gallery posted above.
The Portrait is of a character that I made years ago, only revisited.
The robot is just a concept I came up with, basically a robot comprised of junk parts.
Last is a fanart of an alien race called the pfhor from Bungie's FPS, Marathon. I redesigned it a bit. Not sure if that image will be accepted here, but I thought I'd show it.
