So I've finally decided to make a sketchbook after weeks of lurking.
I am 18 years old and I haven't taken any real art classes, so I'm a true amateur. I've always liked drawing but I never really took it seriously or tried to improve. 3 months ago, that changed. I've finally decided to get good at painting, but I've been lacking some motivation to finish my pieces and learn to more.
My hope is that by creating this sketchbook, I'll get more motivation and in the same time get help by you guys.
My goal is to upload something worthwhile every day or every two days.
So here is some of my most recent sketches/experiments.
Sorry for the massive size of the pictures. :/100%x

Reason: Adding better thumbnail
I have started to feel pretty confident in painting vegetation, so I tried to just paint something out out my imagination, but I couldn't manage to make the background look good. Now when I look at it, the trees are really close the each other as well.
I used reference for the upper one.
Really good job!! the photo realism looks awesome! When you transition from cliff to water you could add some rocks to sort of smooth the the change, unless you are going specifically not making rocks.
Maybe when making clouds use a bigger brush and dont define them that much.
