    Euvari's Sketchbook Thread

    Iíve been doing pencil drawings as far back as I can remember. I donít ever remember being taught, it was just something I did innately before I learned to read or write. My main influences back then were Pro Wrestling & Video Games. Because of that, most of the drawings I did was of the human form (cause pro wrestlers tend to be half naked), but the environments were over the top (see mushroom kingdoms and the like). Along with that, I was drawing characters from shows like Spectreman and Voltron. Around the 4th grade, I had started reading comics, and they became an inspiration as well.
    Around the 7th grade, one of my teachers introduced me to inking. For whatever reason, this was about the first time I started getting positive feedback on my work. Regardless, I still only did the occasional illustration as a hobby. But then, someone offered to pay me for an illustration I had done, and that became a source of income during my teenage years. This was in the 90s, so a lot of customers wanted pics in the Image Comics house style (heavy on hatches/cross hatches). I used this income to buy supplies and teach myself how to paint, while discovering and becoming familiar with anime & manga, specifically Street Fighter II, Fist of The North Star, Ghost In The Shell, and Ninja Scroll.
    For awhile, I stopped doing commissioned work so often, as customers wanted the Image style, and that didnít come naturally for me. I also stopped reading comic and narrowed my focus on anime, and became re-invigorated by video games, specifically Metal Gear Solid. At this point, I stopped doing commissions all together, and began doing a lot of self study in cultural & natural history.
    While I havenít done commissions in years (about eight to be exact), I never stopped drawing. I did stop painting (couldnĎt afford to keep buying the supplies), and started coloring digitally. My contemporary influences include films & music (that ďspeak to meď), but I still get inspiration from comics, manga, anime, and video games. I even started back reading comics sparingly around the time I turned 25.
    I had been trying to get work as an artist, more specifically, a Production Artist or Concept Artist, but have been batting a zero on that front. Also, I currently have no desire to do commissions, so Iím selling prints online at the various sites on the right. At some time in the future, Iíll probably start taking commissions again, but like I said, this is where I am currently.

    You have nice drawings, but IMHO you need more work with color, like make not important or far objects less saturated.
    Good luck

    Hey!

    Try to paint all together in one painting!
    If you are doing everything single, it just looks all put together at the end.
    With this technique you cant do nice moods, because you don't know how it will look at the end.

    Hope this doesnt sound too hard D:
    Keep it up dude!

    Thanks for stopping by Silwynar, and the critique was fine. Right now, I have to do the parts separately, because I have a low end PC. If I make pictures to big, or with to much going on, it'll crash my computer. So I'm kinda stuck with this trick, at least until I get a Mac.
