    Learning to draw and paint journey.

    Hi all,

    I've been looking at the amazing art produced on that forum for some time now and I decided It's time to give it a go myself.

    I'm a 3d animator and I've started on the journey of learning how to draw and paint.
    I'll put here some studies and work and hopefully get some feedback from this great community.

    Thanks for watching and helping me improve.

    Some recent sketches from photo references and books.
    I've been using these great tools recently for refs:

    Last one is a study from William Maughan's book on portraits.

    Some not so old Life drawing

    They're doing these nice life drawing session in a pub in Sydney every monday.

    Most of them are short poses in charcoal.
    I took some of them in computer to add some highlights

    Wow, the portrait of the woman is gorgeous. I really like your life drawings too. I think for someone who is on their journey to learn to draw and paint, you are well on your way.

    These are sick! Love the figures, and those last studies look just like the book.

    Digital painting from photo refs

    Quite old but It's always good to get some feedback.

    I used the photos provided on characterdesign.com for these. Great source of reference.

    The lady dragon was inspired by a Bobby Chiu Podcast.

    New digital paintings

    Thanks JJacks!

    Here's a speed painting from photo ref and a caricature.

    I'm up for any advice as it's my first real color attempt in digital painting after many studies in value.
    I wanted to focus on the face so I kept the rest very painterly (too painterly??)

    Photo ref used :

    Thanks!!

    Thanks Dranyer! I really appreciate the comment.

    Here are some really quick gesture drawing from last night's class. I really enjoy those, cause they force you to be super loose! Between 30 secs and 2 minutes.
