painting from imagination
Good start dude, If you work hard and try to improve constantly you WILL become a beter artist. It seems you have a good foundation and some life skills from being mid 20's so in theory you should improve fairly quickly. Also, you should check out Brad Rigneys work if your feeling down and out, he was in his late 20s, 30s before he started his career and hes frickin amazing.
When his video tutorial is on offer on CA.org shop i would recommend getting it too, its very insightful and inspiring.
Also, check this sketchbook out to see what it takes to become awesome from being a noob - http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=114449
And follow thses guys and their livestreams, You don't have to take the journey of improvement alone and these guys are awesome and will always help - http://crimsondaggers.com/forum/index.php
Finally i once messaged Brad when i started out like yourself (i was 24 too, im 25 now) and he said this to me -
"Keep forging ahead with your work and stay tough through the heartbreak youll experience while improving." At first i didnt really understand this, but you will, and those words helped alot and continue too today.
Stay strong bro and enjoy your journey
I look forward to seeing more work from you

not in the mood because my eyes!! :[
crap... today im not in the mood... i try but my eyes are burning so... i think is best to rest... I'm due a day of sketching
i almost forget this page... Loomis
some faces of the Loomis book
some are from mind others from the Loomis book. also 1 minute pose sketching
painting from imagination without ref
only to test my memory
poses before sadobe flash project for school
ps: im totally aware of the perspective issues.
Good work, keep up the figure studies!
It's alright to do speedpainting, but if you want to learn more then you should also do longer paintings, like spend 4-8 hours studying a still life composition for color theory and lighting, then you will improve your understanding much more. Speedpainting is more useful for design and doing quick studies before the final painting.
The last character speedpainting feels very much out of proportion with small head and you are loosing the form with the boots/hands so study some of those. But I think if you redid the head he would look like a badass.
i make the head small because he his very tall... (but maybe i im not doing it well) thanks for the critique! i will try to make a better painting with more hours of work on it!
