I like your style, I'd say you have a little bit of an own note in every drawing/painting which I find is a good thing. Keep it going Aaron! Your organic shapes already look good, but they would be a lot better if you'd loosen it up a bit more and giving them a small bit more dynamics.
Too many sketchbooks in this forum that deserves better ratings. Your work is great, loving your colour palette. Some of your work, like this one, shows a sensibility that is really special.
Like I said, I love your palette, but some textures that you apply take away from the form. Just look a little into that - it's not such a big problem. Also - and this is just a personal opinion - you might want to look into harder brushes in the initial stages.
Anyway, overall, your work is awesome. Five from me, keep them coming.
Thanks a lot everybody for your replies, especially ohucthulhu, Charmer and Vritra for the great critiques. It's much appreciated.
And Julie, I know what you mean, but it's hard not to at least get discouraged a little bit when you see young kids(I mean like 15 year olds) who just kick so much ass despite having almost no training at all ;D
So lemme shit out a variety of work, studies and doodles.
Like all the mileage you've been putting on. Some of these creatures are pretty wtf though.... hahahaha. Your line work is getting loose man, time to get back to some traditional stuff. My favorite one lately is that first portrait in #57. It's just so creepy and awesome at the same time.
THanks everybody! And your encouragement's always appreciated StarEater.
Maisie: yep wtf is what they are ;D. I actually do more traditional drawings right now than digital. I got this huge stack of filled sketchbooks and like 400s pages of print paper(well, I bought a thousand so that's 500 something more to fill up) just eating away my space. Oh well, I think I'll photograph some later when my comp got fixed. Still drawing on the tablet is impossible though, can't get any good lines at all. Hmmm.. anyway, I'll post a photo of the poop stacks later.
So my most beloved laptop just completely crashed and refused to start when I was having a video chat with Ben, one of my former comrades-in-arms at school. And my mom's computer froze and BlueScreenOfDeathed as well when I was trying to resume the conversation. So yeah, the very painful effect of being struck by the unique voice and likeness of the Techno-Antichrist.
(I think it has more to do with the video cam driver being buggy THB)
And now, I have absolutely no way to actually fixing it 'cept for sending for hard drive repairs, and I might lose the 700 GBs of stuff and the hundreds of hours and dollars I put into collecting them. And the music, the tutorials my friends gave me, all the stuff I payed for, all the movies, the 200 gigs of reference pictures, all the photos of my cherished memories, and most importantly, all my old art 'n stuff....
And I'm going on a trip to Shanghai tomorrow which I have no way of canceling. And that goes all my plans for digital painting along the way. And I'll have to be forced to be torn from my most vital body part(I mean, my laptop) for 2 bloody fucking painful and hellish weeks.
Well, and I just couldn't be more upset right now.
Dont worry too much about losing stuff on the hard disc,mine break once a year with no back up s and they always manage to pull everything off, total cost about £100 including a new disc and a complte replica of your old OS and documents. So dont sweat that. They will of course look through all your porn, but theyre compute nerds, the stuff on their hard discs would curl your hair, so dont sweat that either.
Also, youd be amazed if it is gone how quickly you mourn the loss, cut it off and move on with new better work.
Your comment made me laugh a lot. You know Chuck Norris has never actually seen an explosion? Its true, hes always walking away like a boss.
Great paints! All I can say is keep up the good work
But don't be too discouraged by your computer problems, it really sucks when something like that happens but sometimes it might be a good thing to cut the navel cord between you and your laptop and enjoy your holiday. After a break you'll probably have tons of energy for a fresh start
