hey you guys
i'm quiet new to the art scene and all. i think i'm now 10 to 11
months really into arts form drawing with pencil to painting digitally
and i'm still only 15 years old so lots and lots of time to improve
so here are my best works and i hope to get some feed back from you guys
i would really appreciated it
this is my first painting ever and the sketch isn't mine i used a sketch from a tutorial dvd. the sketch belongs to Brian Haberlin.
Hi, In the first image I would add more translucent effect to the water, so there is some light in the water under the dock where is now total shadow, also maybe in the closest foreground water could have some of it
15?!!!!!! Wow, I wish I started painting at that age. Some wicked good work you have!! Never stop improving!
ey guys i'm back with an other painting
and i've also lisent to Danilo and edited that painting so here you
guys i hope you like them all and please tell if the first one or the edited
version is better.
ow and don't forget to check out my deviant page
On the new painting:
I'm not sure the upper right hand corner (or any corner) is a good spot to put your focal point. I understand the figure plays a big role in this, but darkness surrounding a light source is where the highest contrast is, and thus this becomes your focal point- intended or not.
The figure is barely recognizable. It's all about values. He's too close to the darks around him and seems to have the same colors as well. Just too hard to notice.
Nice work, are you a self taught artist?
i'm glad that you like my work and yes i'm a self taught artist.
I've been drawing and digitally painting for almost 2years now and i'm just 16years old so i still have allot of time to improve my self ^^

I've been reworking my last post lately and here is my improved version
i hope you all like it. and please leave a comment or critique on my work
that would really help me on my way to becoming a succesfull artist ^^
Stay away from black. I know it's tempting, but it's extremely easily abused. Try keying things a bit lighter.
Your stuff looks pretty good. I'd say to try spending even more time doing life drawing, on top of the work you're doing here. Keep doing the imagined piece, but spend some time practicing your fundamentals. You'll improve faster that way.
Keep at it.
If you draw like that in your age, you will be some famous 2d artist one day for sure. When I was at ur age, I only drew to get some girls, especially portraits of them. That's my story and how I improved in anatomy lol
Anyway, looking at your second picture you should try to expand, learn how to draw muscles and faces from observation. The more knowledge you gain, the more motives, compositions and possibilities are open for you.
Never lose sight of your goals, you're very talented.
Good work man just keep refining it and get away from black.
I feel like a few are taking into account your age too much, Awesome you started young but it is more the person and how long they work on things that matter. Sadly i do agree with the i should have started younger statements.
Note to self - Do not try to invade your house.
Art so far SketchBook
Hmm, yeah. Alright, we've seen that you can do dark pictures, and in almost all of them a part of the creature/characters you've drawn are cropped out of the image or fading away into something. Try not resorting to that anymore and draw something "new". Show that you're capable of variety and new techniques, perhaps show us some sketches; this is the Critique section after all, not the Finally Finished and it's much easier for us to critique a progress and much easier for you to take in and use the critique in pictures that aren't finished yet.
You're on the right track, really. You're doing well considering your age too, but I'd like to see some less polished works and some variety.
thanks for all the comments that you guys gave me on my last post.
and as you can see i finally broke my habit of painting in dark tones
so i hope you guys like it and i would really appreciate it if you would
comment on my newest piece and tell how i can improve more and what
your overall opinion is
Like the fire! Your work will be stronger as you continue to understand negative space and placing light behind objects. Example the dragon would become dark as it gets closer to the moon. The moon would create more ambient atmospheric light and the dragon would be a lightless shape "in front" of the moonlight. The negative space around and behind the dragon would give all the visual information needed to describe almost all of the dragon except the head, eyes, fire.
keep up the good work
Wow, you are very good for your age. I am certainly no pro but my opinion is that your color pieces are extremely dark to the point the work cannot be appreciated fully. If you utilize lighting it will go a long way.
ey thanks for the comments (:
and yeh chaoserver i'm now going to work on the fact that i was painting in to dark tones which as you said made it so that my work wasn't appreciated to it's full extend. but the mermaid has been my first painting ever in only light tones so i'm going to work on that so that more of my painting are gonna be lighter in the future.
and markwagner thanks for the tip! i'll try to incorperate it in a new painting (:
man i love the fire. and i like this one a lot too:
keep working, keep trying new stuff, challenge yourself to things that are hard, youll do great.

since my last last post i've been working on my skills in painting faces, in particular those of girls
so here is the result of my afforts in painting girl faces hope you all like it and i'd love any comment you might have on what is might need to improve ect.
here is my 1st try on a portrait. for this one i used a photo as reference
here is my 2nd try also using a reverence photo
and here is my 3rd try trying to create it fully from my imagination but eventually had to get a reverence photo to get to proportions and shapes just right.
i hope you all like it and please if you have the time check out my deviantart page at http://joldi.deviantart.com/
stop drawing lifelessness, see lifelessness and you will draw lifelessness.
i know the secret of imaginitive drawing, and you needent ever use a photo to draw realism, thats a mistake everyone thinks.
what you do is see natural life, then your hand will draw natural life. thats how it works, its instinctively automatic, anyone can do it, artists are no more talented at it than people that cant draw.
a few of your pictures are really nice, the first one is great, i think you must have "seen"
how evil you wanted that dragon to be... next time you draw a girl, just think "natural girl" and u wont put the nasty lifeless errors on it. art is that simple.
joldi, don't bother, he's just trolling.
Keep doing what you're doing.
Jodi, just ignore wunts, its a troll.
Your rendering have improved nicely since you last posted, your still lacking a proper grasp of forms though. Try studying the general shapes of the face, do a study of a planar head for example =)
I would recommend David Rubins book on human anatomy for bones and muscles of the face; to have theoretical background.
It will help you make sense out of the Asaro head that Bette posted- you need to know why shadow and light falls on the planes.
//You might be able to memorize everything and just skip the entire anatomy phase, I know some professionals don't know all the muscles in detail- they do know however all their shapes and how the function.. I think there is little way around it.
if all you do is copy things, then youll formulate some way of drawing the same thing every time. you are all foolish and think you know better.
