I'm pretty much just trying to become a professional illustrator and concept artist by 2014. I am 21 years old. I'll be posting all my studies focusing on fundamentals here.
I am now 22! Here's where I'm at a year into my journey of becoming an artist. My latest piece: gogogooggoogogoooO!

So, at this point I have no idea what I am doing except that i'm trying to capture likeness and implement design elements (shape, value, and edge). these drawings are about 40 minutes long

So I'm not going to post all of my drawings between august and december because they are all terrible and one can understand where I was at when I first started. I just want people to "get" the general idea of how I've improved. This post contains the January through current portrait drawings. all drawings are from live models. these drawings range from 40 minutes to an hour and 30 minutes. If I had more time to render from a live model I'm sure I could make these more realistic.

first colored study ever... wip
poop portrait from life. 25 min.
Nice sketchbook start! Even I would be happy if my first colour study would've looked like that!
I just would recommend to show us some stuff from imagination. Right now it's difficult to give some good advices, because all we see are some head studies. So we don't know where your problems are and what we can say to help you to improve =)
@lyraina- I've tried using color before but never by a direct study so I've somewhat learned how to approach using color. thank you for the nice comment. take care!
@valyavande- thank you. haha, I suck at imagination stuff but i will post it to humble myself...and get better.
@tehmeh- your welcome man. thanks, i've been trying to make these studies the best they can be. I'm studying at california art institute in So Cal. California art center isn't anything like art center or cal arts because you only meet once a week. So to get more practice I take a life drawing class and sneak into other life drawing classes at the junior college near where I live. I'd like to go to art center or cal arts but it is just too expensive unfortunately. So, I'm studying at home mostly taking part in the crimson daggers study group. I've just started interacting with them though and becoming more diligent in studying art. But yuuuuup, that's pretty much it. Keep killing it man! GOGOGOOGOGOGO

I JUST GOT MY ANATOMY BOOKS IN THE MAIL! WOOO. Now just waiting for my moleskin. o.o come on mail!
So doing a no reference painting proved too hard so i did a 3/4 view using the color study to make this piece from imagination. SO, it was a half imagination, half referenced (color was referenced. that's it.)
I didn't focus on the hair...or the eyes, or the lips, or the nose. haha.. but I will go back and render it. just count this as a wip!

Here's some studies for the 6th bloodsport challenge hosted by the one and only Crimson Daggers. I'm not going to post the main study because i don't want to give away what base animal i'm using for my character creation. ...don't want anyone to steal it 'cause i think it is that good.

@rennyinford- did you mispost?
so here's my final images for the bloodsports 6 for the crimson daggers! I only like my bird. XD
So for those participating in the challenge hosted by the crimson daggers the rules were to create a hunter before the kill of a beast/creature/animal, the beast, and the hunter after he's killed the beast where he has applied the items from the beast's carcass.
*I didn't post my "before" hunter cause it really sucks!
desaturated color study of woman's face. need to work on hands
just some life drawing. Each portrait is an hour and 20-40 minutes.
So, after a month or two of not updating, I am back to post. Here's some stuff. A commission and some personal work.
haha, yes, I've got to post more work. This is not EVERYTHING that i've done over the past two months... just some stuff that I think is the better portion. I should really post everything I have though since this thing is called a "sketchbook". I'm really bad at posting consistently though, but thanks for pushing me to do it. Also, thanks for the positive comments. ...and yes, the hair, clothing, neck/back, are very rushed. It ruins the study so I'm going to go back and finish it.

quick sketch before bed. 1 hr 30 minutes... from imagination...
just a concept silhouette i was most happy with...the head looks like it was inspired by starcraft 2 alien races. ... T.T
thanks man! Keep working and improving! We'll get there!
Cool stuff! You have a really strong sense of value ad color in your works, I think. I particularly like the portraits!
Thanks syrella! trying really hard.
just a sargent study
