    Test one, two, one two, test [UPDATE 06/21/11]

    HI !
    Here's the thing: I'm almost 22, and i really want to improve, because for now I suck and i just can't have a job with my level. I'm kind of stuck: i don't know what to do to progress, i've got a lot of problems with colors, anatomy, perspective... For anatomy i think i should read some loomis, for perpective and colors i don't know (if you have some ideas !)
    As i'm posting this thread i'm seeing that i don't even have a landscape, i should try to do some arrh.
    Some doodles, studies, speedies, things from imagination or life, lkhgleqrih etc..
    Say anything you want, i really need another opinion !

    (Sorry for the BIG jpg)

    Well, it seems like nobody has critic or anything to say, i must stick to my motivation.
    By the way I did this, and, i must admit, it's very hard. I think i'm gonna do this kind of thing more often... It's not finished but my hand hurts like hell !

    You're work is good, and you're much too hard on yourself from what I can tell. As long as you keep practicing, you'll make progress. As for perspective, I highly recommend 'Perspective Made Easy', lots of useful exercises there. Your latest painting is excellent, great use of values and colors there.

    Keep posting!

    Thanks a lot for answering me ! Maybe i'm too hard but when i come lurking here, i can't stop thinking that my drawing are really bad. I will check "Perspective Made Easy"... And for the latest painting, well, it 's a bit orange but i learned 2 or 3 things so it's cool !

    Hey man, I'm in the same boat as you (age and jobwise). I actually like what I see, don't be to hard on yourself, just channel the hate into productivity. Looking forward to future work. KEEP WORKING

    Thanks for your answer Woji, i totally agree when you say "just channel the hate into productivity" and i will try that.. (will check your sketchbook too, but unfortunately i didn't have the time recently to check the forum, and draw.)

    So, i just have a study for now : bouguereau color study (little things don't fit the original but it's not a copy and it was usefull for my eyes). I think i'll post more things tomorrow if i have the time.

    I would have to agree with cgaddict, you are going the right way about this. Stick around and check out the other threads of this forum. If you want to succeed as an artist be sure to be around successful ones. Just because you have flaws here and there, doesn’t mean it isn’t worth paying for. If you grabbed a by standard attention by your work alone, which I know you had, you are good. BTW your figures are stiff I would refer you to http://www.drawingforce.com/ and check out the book as well. As I will keep on saying, don’t just look at the pictures, read the notes that the artist has taken. Give yourself a regiment. When I was in Art Center I had to do 30-40 clean line drawings. Glen Villpu when he was criticized for his line work being sloppy in his early days, he took a series 7 Winsor & Newton brush and did nothing but a series of lines pint to pint for the next 8 hours.
    As for commission, I have seen works that are practically not so good carbon copies or drawing resembling a middle to high school work that have sold at the equvalents of $25-$30 dollars an hour. check out these threads.

    Oh oh Sorry one more thing. Dont accept or deny your flaws. Observe. Surprisingly harder and easier than it sounds. Dont feel good about your color? Do a series of color studys. Dont feel good about your line work? do a series of line work studies. Compostion, perspective, anatomy, all the same.

    if youre worried about color, try to start with values of things first and then add color.

    is that first painting done on ds? and good stuff so far, i just started reading one of loomis' books today, the head and hand one. pretty good stuff so far.

    good luck!!

    my subconscious does not stop begging my conscious to draw.
    hmm does that mean im a slave to my subconscious?
    at least it doesnt beg for crack. ha.
