    Nice planal heads.

    You seem to have come up with a good method of study and a good regimen. It's working

    Thinking connects desire with creation.

    You're lately getting more ass pats (sorry for the word, don't want to be rude ^^') then the critique it self.. I just hope that it wont make you stuck in comfort zone or viscous circle but will add motivation to go further! Your progress is amazing but theres still a long road ahead..

    To the answer for my previous question: I see, good luck in what you're doing! May I just ask if drawing is more of a hobby for you or are you aiming to make a living out of it? (ah.. forgive my curiosity.. I'm just so impressed of what you're doing here)

    HOW MANY HOURS ALREADY?

    Also I'd want to have such a motivation to make studies all the time, instead I'm only drawing from imagination >.>

    Ahh you guys...Thanks so much for still visiting my sketchbook, you're all wonderful

    So a lil bit of an explanation...lately my heart hasn't been in drawing at all, and I've switched to learning about other things (web design). At this point in time I'm not sure if I'll come back to drawing...Maybe in 6 months or something....I'm not sure if being a concept artist is what I want to do for the rest of my life and so right now I don't want to invest years of time learning to draw without a clear idea of where it's taking me. I hope that makes sense?
    Thanks again everyone for your support, and CA for letting me upload my crappy work, you're amazing!

    Au revoir

    Ah, well that's understandable, work hard wherever you're drawn to and you'll be dandy in any case. Enjoy yourself!

    I'm back! After lots of soul searching I realized I want to draw because I enjoy it, even if there is no point or end goal to doing it. I'm quite surprised by how much I remembered but I think I will relearn all the basics again. So lets gooo..

    That is seriously a huge improvement from what you started with.. always great to see! I'd recommend adding elements to it all now. Add equipment like rings etc. Just start improvising from what you've got which is the base. The best way to improve creativity at the same time is to take a household item around you and possibly transform it into equipment. Just a thought! Keep it up

    David Frost

    I think you're on the right track, dude. Keep it up, your work will only get better.

    p.s. sorry to the poster who's signature had these quotes. I saved them a long time ago and can't remember who it was.

    Where my sketchbook link will eventually go. for now I'll just observe, and learn.

    Wow this is amazing. You have the mixture of working a ton everyday and always trying to get things right. Also the order of things you decided to learn was really good. Really inspiring. I want to copy the order you learned things too now !

    Oh! Wow! I didn't even notice you were back! Welcome back!
    I was your #1 fan back then.

    I agree it's about enjoying it. I do have projects I want to finish but I'm not concerned about being professional anymore. Professional in the sense of having a career as a concept artist. I haven't re-opened a sketchbook yet, but I might soon, for studies.

    HEllO! I remember you Yeah, it takes a lot of pressure off when you're doing it because you enjoy it rather than thinking 'I have to do this because I have to earn money doing it as soon as possible'


    This week's stuff, all digital. I know some of it is really bad, critique is always welcome:
