    A copy of a painting of red sonja. Need to get used to drawing more female characters thought this would be an interesting way to start, plus really like the film.

    Tried to produce a imaginative character based upon a greek warrior. Not really pleased with the outcome but posted to give me the motivation to do better. Probably should have used more photo referencing for the armour and the word arm looks very off but at least its warming up m creative brain a little

    Been trying to draw from my imagination and not really enjoying the results, really need too desperately improve in this area. Even my designs are so basic and generic need to feed my brain to feed my creativity

    Really loving the shading on your drawings. The cat and the fruit really stand out.

    Also I know how you feel about drawing from imagination! I'm 100x worse than you at that stage and I would be ashamed to post the drawings I've done from my own imagination.

    PerfectGet Thanks for stopping by and having a look, glad you have seen something you like. I sort of like the Lion too although I did not really establish the proportions properly before diving in with the shading. I am really trying to work on improving my technique and ability to blend. As far as my imaginative drawings go they suck so badly, look like a 10 year old done them. But posting crap motivates me to do better also want to be able to look back on my old stuff and see the progress. So dont be shy and post away. I think people seeing your imaginative stuff is just as important and interesting as seeing all those studies.
