    Daniel Cicero's Sketchbook, (16 years and onward)

    Hi CA!
    My name is Daniel Cicero in I am 16 years old, live in Australia and love drawing. I basically have the dream and goal of working as a concept artist at Blizzard entertainment and to achieve this once I complete my art degree in about 6 years. From here on this will hopefully serve as a progression of my artwork until the day I become a concept artist for Blizzard.
    Construstive critisism and suggestions would be greatly appriciated.
    Thankyou for visiting my post and I hop you enjoy it

    Hiya and welcome to CA! Great start to your sketchbook. Keep doing these studies and you'll improve in no time. I also recommend Loomis and Bridgeman anatomy books, for studying. Don't forget to have fun!

    Welcome to CA, glad to see another teen. I laughed when I read your first post because I have the same goal as you. To work as a concept artist for Blizzard. Well, I know you haven't posted much, but from what I can see you'll need some work. Keep doing those anatomy studies and don't forget to draw from life. I hope to see your progression

    Nice to see you getting a early start.

    About the blizzard thing you might want to modify your goal to something less specific, maybe to just be the best character designer you can be or something and if you so happen to get a job at blizzard great, if not, you could just wind up as a artist for some other cool studio. The goal should be more on the craft than a Specific place of employment, but its good to have goals though and the only reason I mention it is because its something that comes up a lot.

    I have a couple links in my sig to some good tutorials .
    Some specific links
    Another link to loomis(already mentioned) if you dont already have it.

    Bobby chiu great for getting motivated

    Above all else just draw everyday keep consistent and you'll always improve.
    Dont waste time and practice everything you can from life,photo, and imagination as much as you can.
    Keep at it.

    The next few pieces come mainly from the awesome works of Dan Luvisi. I promise I will be better that him by the end of this year.

    I think your focusing way to much on detail, you can't hide a bad foundation with lots of detail, you lack of knowledge anatomy and pose shows through like a bright light in the dark. Get some Andrew Loomis and George Bridgman books those should help you

    well I thought I had improved a great deal in a matter of a month.
    Yes I know my anatomy could be better, but it is improving but I dont believe there is anything wrong with adding details, it can only help right?

    You learn very quickly, I can see noticeable improvements with each post. Keep drawing, keep looking at new things and experimenting, and you'll keep getting better.

    Quite Happy with how these both turned out.
    I used absolutely zero reference for them both. Everything came from my mind which is what im happy about.
    Just keep improving.
    Thanks for looking guys.
