    it's time to finally change myself

    Hi everyone, i want to show you my works and in the same time observe my progress. My main goal in drawing is to draw extremely fast every kind of drawing-painting-illustration (i use that skill in new kind RPG games ). I mostly concentrate on digital painting. Recently I discovered that i need to master my pencil skill and anatomy first and then become better at digital. So i will start from uploading some of my recent pencil works (from nature). Tried to do it as fast as always... I also wrote the time i needed to draw each work...

    critique always welcome....

    Fun stuff, there's a little bit of everything in here
    I read that you want to be super fast at drawing, I got some advice from one of my teachers that slowed me down a bit- she said to take your time and learn to do it right and speed will come as a result.
    Sometimes you gotta slow down - I think it's better for your heart
    anyways- keep up the good fight! Happy sketching

    your studies are looking pretty good. Keep up the hard work!

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    I love your Arch sketches they are awesome. The locomotives are badass as well makes me want to draw some. Someone showed me this website here and even though i haven't really tried it out it has some amazing tips for digital. Cheers.

    im angry at myself for posting crap like earlier pen drawings...

    trying as hard as possible to enchance my precision and line quality... anybody knows a solution for it?? I have a feeling that my hand is shaking a little and it is hard to draw precisely... anyway, i will try every available method to get rid of that feeling...

    These are all really good. Loving how you render with pencil (the crosshatching). I can't see any evidence that you're not able to control your pencil strokes or precision. Is it possible that you're worrying too much? Or too much coffee? LOL. All I can say is that you're on the right track, lovely line quality in these drawings, keep it up!

    update and first time summary of my skills

    I decided to make something like Rpg system for challenging my art skills and i think it is the best method to motivate myself, and of course i will set some achievments to complete every month or year

    Remember, i am drawing and updating sketchbook regularly everyday! I will be doing a summary every 2 weeks coz i think its optimal time for seeing some progress (not too short, not too long)

    if u think that my summary needs some changes relative to my present skills, just say it!


    summary and some digital sketches from imagination















    first achievment for this month is to increase my drawing precision and learn some more anatomy

    Wow you really demonstrate a lot of improvement from your first post to your last. I love the posting with all the ball point pen drawings from imagination. Your art rpg system is a pretty interesting idea. Although I do not know if progress is something cut and dry enough to be measured with levels. It would also be difficult to objectively and accurately rank yourself. Anyway keep up the hard work. I would love to see some more finished pieces from you.

    My Sketchbook would benefit from your critiques.
