fenixx: Holy crap those are really decent tutorials! I ended up browsing through all of them watching quite a few. I've been drawing non stop and I already see a million times improvement from even just a week ago.
Here is my latest sketch. Yes I know it resembles a "popular" t-shirt design. The reason I am drawing this is a good friend of mine is as much of a nerd as I am. He's tall and lanky and he always used to wear this shirt with a "Bullhead Dolphin" so I set out to draw something equally as cheesy.
Him as a barbarian fishing for a bullhead dolphin with a pole arm type weapon with a full moon and three wolves in the background and waves splashing behind him. I haven't added the waves or the fishing line yet (which really balances out the composition).
I just wish I could render it how I see it in my head. But anyway without further adue here's my latest sketch. Took about 30-40 minutes to get everything where I wanted it to be.
