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

Copies of Michealangelo's figure studies,

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!

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!!!
