    Eat.Sleep.Draw

    Right, so trying this sketchbook thing again.
    hopefully I'll keep this one updated... lmao.

    I'm self studying art, specifically digital illustration, so any help is both welcome and necessary. Drawing is what I love doing most, and It'd be blessing to make it my full time occupation.

    First few posts, just stuffs I've been doing recently, some are photo and movie still studies, others are concept, all are pretty rough, except the the chick with headdress which is more or less complete.

    Will post more working drawings soonish.

    Great stuffs, man. Can't really give you feedback since you're way better than me but a thing I noticed (especially in the first pic.. Fight Club?) is that you draw with pretty short strokes and that kinda draws you away from the bigger picture. I'd suggest drawing longer/bigger strokes and concentrating on the big shapes first. Yeah.. don't know if that made any sense but.. Keep it up

    Ah ok, never really thought about that, I'll definitely experiment with some longer strokes!

    Photo Ref Speed Painting

    This one took two or so hours, It's not done, but I'm leaving it at that, because I feel it's served its purpose in showing me where I should be doing things differently. The short strokes are definitely evident, and I don't particularly like how it came out. But onto the next one, just got to keep practicing.

    Sorry for the bad quality image, had to use cellphone camera because I haven't gotten my hands on a good scanner as yet.

    Caravaggio Study "John The Baptist"

    Will try getting this onto my pc and painting it later. I've heard studying pieces by the masters was a good idea, so I'll probably do a few more too..
