    Melfuerte - Aspiring artist

    Hi everyone,

    I have been encouraged by a deviant to start a sketch book on this website.

    been checking out this site for sometime, but have yet to make any posts.

    i'll need anything to help keep me motivated as I am an aspiring to become very good in drawing/painting concept work.

    to start off with, I will just post up a sketch I have done based on Blizzard's game Starcraft II.

    for those that dont know, there are 2 alien races in teh Starcraft universe, the; Zerg & Protoss.

    the Zerg are a race that assimilate(infest) the dna (i think) of other races they encounter to gain their strengths and combine it with their own.

    the Protoss are a race of advance technology and psionic power (magic)

    This picture is of an Infested Protoss Dark Templar.

    The Dark Templar are the assassin for the Protoss, with a power that grants them permanent invisibility, and a warp blade that kills many opponents with a single strike.

    Therefore, I thought it would be pretty bad ass to Infest a dark templar whom once infested, gains the rapid regeneration of the zerg, additional claws and hard carapace armour to make it even more threatening!

    Comments & Feedback for everything I do is most welcome: (the most harsh AND constructive please!)

    Anyway, here it is:

    EDIT: The dragon is Niv-Mizzet the firemind concept from magic the gathering

    You start with creatures, so you want to draw and paint better creatures, right? It's always good to know what people want. That makes it easier to give critique. MAybe you can tell us more about the way you want to go =)

    No matter what you do, it's always good to work on the basics. Anatomy, colours, linework.. everything. Think about what's most important at moment. Search some tutorials and start working. Make sketches, many many sketches. And do life drawings if you can.

    Actually, working with gesture drawings could be interesting for you to invent you creatures better. Create a basic skeleton and add the details later.
    Work on your lines - define the important things more and give them more variation.

    And now: show us stuff

    Thanks for the response.


    Yeah, you're right. I would definately love to be able to draw and paint better creatures.

    I also want to draw fantasy, sci fi, (environments, creatures, robots, characters) but mainly creatures.

    I have been look around for tutorials here and there, which have helped but I'm just not 100% sure what I should look up exactly..

    but i have a few sketches here:

    Hello ConceptArt.org,

    I haven't posted in a very long time but I assure you that I am striving to improve my drawing and digital painting skills. I thought I would share my process with my most recent painting.

    a painting of Niv-Mizzet the Firemind from Magic: The Gathering.
