Hello, As you can see my title, well that says it all, trying to get better and hope I be as great as the great artists I look up too in here and inspire me to continue to try to live my dream. I'm a late bloomer but I have been drawing since I was a kid on and off. I went to school for computer animation and that never worked out because I never had that fire, passion as I have it in concept art and/or illustration and even though my teenage years I had a passion for street art/urban art and still do. I just love all types of art and really love originality in the art itself. I don't how I would incorporate that in this field so I continue to study on my own figure drawing and try to improve on my anatomy, figure, and character designs. I also traditional paint on the side which is something I do on the side and really learning, don't think I am great but I'm learning something. Well in all I'm here to transition to digital painting and really make great stories with the pieces as well as to really be as a great as all the artists i look up to. Well any critiques are very welcome and thank you for at least looking at my sketch book.

I just got back from small vacation with family took my sketch book with me but really couldn't get the time to put in some sketches. Anyways this is what happens when you skip gesture drawing for a week , i'm not happy about it but here it is, couple of face studies and gesture drawings with the gesture drawing tool. Will update daily from now on, Thanks.
small update nothing major still practicing figure drawing did about an hr today but I know have to put in more time for better results. No excuses
figure drawing an hour, hard to work when kids are home for the summer.
update kinda let loose for a bit this weekend and tried not to draw from reference so just dumb ideas and the did figure drawing today to get back on track
was a frustrating day today with figure drawing didn't like my results or wasn't feeling them but I did it hoping I can finish some paintings this week and need to start painting digitally any tips on speed painting anyone?
figure drawing 1 hr
critiques are always welcomed.
update most of it sucks I know but another hr of figure drawing and a little practice on head studies while listening to TAD Conceptual Portraiture, goal is to start digital tomorrow at least a sketch.
Looks like you're doing the right things to me, keep on those life drawings. I think your paintings look a lot better than your pencil work because you don't have a lot of line confidence.
Practice some contours, move the pencil slowly, try to get more variation in the quality of the lines too. (thick/thin, dark/light, curves)
@ Alexander thanks for your critiques and suggestions on what need to improve. I will continue to strive to get better and always appreciate any criticism I can get.
Update from this weekend and today's hour figure drawing
update did hr of gesture and figure drawing not posting up gesture don't think it's useful but here are the min poses and one 30min. still messing with the digital to get the hang of it too.
forgot head studies need a lot of work
I just want to say the title of of the thread may seem a little harsh but in some crazy way I know I won't but would like the harsh critiques to at least get a chance.man I sound LAME !!!! lol anyway here's and update 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas a lot of dub step and house music really let me know what ya think?

update just want to say I don't know how to edit my thread's title lol. Anyways just wanted to update and let people know my title may come off as cocky or arrogant but I'm the least of that I thought I would have to fight for my spot a spot i haven't earn in this circle but no compitition opf anyone here. Realize we are only we're here to help each other and have alot to learn even as person in general but I've had alot of support lately and really am reminded why I love art in general and as well as why i come back aand have everyone here that inspires me.
they are sketches and Ideas of things I've wanted to play with and paint in the future. Last 2 are acrylic paintings for a show at a local gallery Angelic Gallery here in Phoenix. Theme was Angel and Demons.Any Critiques are very much appreciated.

thank you truly appreciate it!
A super long time for an update but here's nothing, I have a lot to learn and a long way for what I'm asking for, I just love art and I'm here to learn.
started a tumblr as well if anyone wants to follow, I'm a nobody trying to do something with something I love!!!!!
I see a lot of improvement especially in your line quality. It was very hairy, it is much better now. Search for shapes. I like the vampire and the guy with big ears. Keep it up!
thanks pixel cheetah
here are a couple of other sketch I forgot to put up last night, actually these were on my desktop
speed painting portrait 1 hr
Man never realized how fucking bad I really suck !!!! so fuck getting respect cuz that's never going to happen. How about just being good enough which I don't think thats going happen either. Anyways did figure drawing 30 session on gesture drawing tool and about an hr on jimmy yesterday and 1 hr on the girl (marzia prince fitness model) photo study for 1 hr as well which that one sucks, never mind they all suck. Older sketches from scans I found today want to turn those in to vectors don't know if any one is interested in vector crap. but I'll post them up when finished.
