Hey guys, how are you all doing?
My name is Jiri Krewinkel. I'm 18 years old and from the Netherlands.
I've been lurking this forum and cgsociety for quite a while now, as well as random Devianart pages and I was always fascinated by these pieces that are posted here. Never did it occur to me I could be creating something like that. Well now I want to step my game up and get into the world of illustration.
I am COMPLETELY 100% new to illustration and concept art. I've read that Andrew Loomis is a great resource, so I went and got some of his books. I also have a WACOM Bamboo medium sized tablet to draw with.
The plan is to post my progress in here, just everything I create and hopefully see some good progression!
So please, give me all the critique you have on my pieces, as this will only help me grow.
You all seem like a friendly bunch so I'm looking forward to participating in this community.
Having said that, here's my very first piece.
I had no goal going into it whatsoever, just wanted to practice drawing a good face. From what I can see his mouth is way to small, and his eyes are very anime- and girl-like. Also his hairline doesn't seem to be at the right place.
