Welcome to the forums! Your Ancient Astronaut picture reminds me of Amano, almost.
Hi! I've been watching Concept.org for a while and I saw so much great work on this forum. I said to myself "I need to get in on that." So here I am, just a hard working art student with a lot to learn, posting my work with the hope that I'll get some serious feedback and critique from this community. I've been on the look out for a great anatomy book for artists (any suggestions?)
My personal critiques is that I should work on (in addition to general improvements)
Backgrounds (thats a big one)
Figures in space
I thank you in advance for any suggestions on how to improve.
Here is some recent digital work done with photoshop.
Some Acrylic painting
A mural I painted in my high school a few years back. Latex based paint on cinder- block (eww)
Some ink drawings from imagination

here are some more aliens...

Thanks for the welcome Littlebones. I have seen Amano's work before and I can see what you mean. I like to scribble in bic pens sometimes and they have that same organic yet scratchy texture that he uses in in his etchings.
I just came back from a Lecture by Bioware-Mythic's Art Director Peter Lipman and I feel so completely inspired! I feel like I could run a mile or just stay awake for days drawling or whatever! I wasn't completely sure about the game-design industry or concept art until I heard this lecture and now I know what I want to do with my art and it is the most amazing feeling. Im like tripping on a manic high. I was so nervous before the talk and I couldn't figure out why and now I know that nauseous feeling was excitement and a sign that this kind of industry was the place for me.
I making a resolution from now on to work harder than ever at improving my art. Starting with the promise to post a painting or sketch every week.
Whether anyone is watching this thread or not I just had to get the energy Im feeling this moment out there!
I really love your sketches! especially the geisha(?) one! and I like the hair in the last drawing!
So far looks like you've got a good handle on the figure, good proportions and what not- I think more specific studies is the way to go- pick a theme- texture, lighting- folds- blah blah blah and do some studies. '
You can never do too many studies!
Welcome to CA & Happy sketching!!!
Rhubix- Thanks for the advice I'm working on color studies now and Im going to try and incorporate some fold like you suggested, some object too.
This is my first look at artist profiles here and I'm very impressed by the talent from CarmenJudy. I especially like the Nobile Grey image.
