    Journey to master the world around me

    Hey! I glad to see that there's a fine art section here! So here I go! Im a 20yrs old Illustrator. I yearn to be able to draw anything. To create art that can inspire people. Most of my work now does not really focus on that. This is a new goal of mine so Ill post most of my previous work and then we can work from there.
    Thanks for viewing! Please leave a rating!

    The following are my self-portraits:
    1. Acrylic 34x36''
    2.&3. charcoal
    4. Full body- pastels 24x36''

    Amazing rendering on those charcoal self-portraits.

    If you'd like to inspire, maybe do some more stuff from imagination, or think of an idea, an emotion, anything you wanna convey and put those skills to use.

    I think these are great, but I simply view these as either studies, copies, or what-is, a means of obvious talent, but not thought provoking, It doesn't provoke any thought, because there's simply not much there beyond surface level, however, it does inspire me to work harder to reach this level of rendering/skill.

    Not trying to be harsh, just my two cents. Keep posting and good luck, it's difficult

    edit: i may have spoken too soon, it's a new sketchbook, but in the future it's something to think about.

    ...the imperfections make it interesting...
