    Start of my journey

    Below are some sketches I did around 2012. I did not really have any kind of direction here.

    pretty big difference from your 2012 sketches to your more recent ones. I like how you're experimenting with colour, doing a pretty good job with it too.

    You say you lack direction, just what direction do you want to go?

    Thank you for the kind words. I am leaning towards concept art. I guess I am trying to build some fundamental skills at this point and looking for critique and suggestions.

    If you really want to learn the fundamentals, I think its important you start doing more practice's. Anatomy for instance we havent seen a full character yet but if you want to learn the fundamentals, do less of this stuff and do more study like drawings. Pages filled with figures, different head shapes and how it turns, perspective practices. And now and then make a finished piece, your work looks great so if you do a bit more study like drawing I think you will improve fast. Hope this helps you in becoming a better artist!

    Dennis, thanks for the kind words and helpful advice. I agree I need some anatomy work and I plan on watching Scott Robertson's perspective dvd soon to try and start making more complicated scenes and compositions.

    Woop woop! Welcome back ^^ lol.
    Great improvements! it's a bit hard to see tho, you should scale up the pictures a bit.
    About a book. '' figure drawing design and invention michael hampton '' is great! I really recommend that. Or just look up people like Proko on youtube.

    Mrko

    Thanks man I am trying to buckle down and get serious and know I have neglected some needed skills. Many of them are small in size because I created them on iscribble.net which is small format to begin with and other's can draw on the board with you. When I upload some new drawings tomorrow I will make sure they are bigger.

    Nice I have that book and know about proko so I have no excuses for my figures to be the way they are ;>. I think I am going to try and do 50 poses a day until I feel better about my figures.

    Here is a quick frazetta study I did a little bit back.
