Hi everybody, I'm Alex and I'm 23.
This september I'm going to an art school but till then I must become better at drawing.
So I am creating this humble thread to give me the motivation to draw more
I would really appreciate criticism and feedback.
I will post a mix of old and new stuff, digital and traditionnal.
I have to work so I can reach the high level of guys here, so many talented artists *__*
Thank you in advance

A quickie one I did before going to bed
Older ones like 2/3 weeks ago.
The last one is a WIP of Maria Hill. I never know what do do for backgrounds, gotta find out XD
another study I began this night
WIP, I will finish this one properly.
Based on an Ellen Page picture:
I saw the trailer of "Beyond" and I have the moment when she says: "Next time, I'll kill everyone !" stuck in my head !!!
Even though it looks a lot like "Heavy Rain", the story looks interesting so I'm waiting for this game
today's stuff, life drawing (I must do more of them o_O) and some outfit research
a few poses from posemaniacs, trying to understand how it works
quick simple sketch no refs, no design research XD
I just saw "Snow White and the Huntsman", it was a good entertainment, and the queen Raveena is so cool: impressive, scary and beautiful design *__*
today was my mom's birthday so I didn't have time to do anything, just a little progress on Ellen's study
next step, I'm so slow o_O
Didn't have time for anything today *_*
Just a small step further for Ellen's portrait and a quick sketch playing with Anthony "awesome" Jones's tool available here: http://schoolism.com/interview.php?id=78
PS: the woman on the sketch says that except her crappy anatomy, everything is ok for her ! XD
Hi there, I've been so busy these days because of a moving out and a sick puppy who is slowly getting better
So just a small step on Ellen's portrait again and some old stuff from my previous school
Very busy but I continue painting
Today's study from this picture: http://rtrib.deviantart.com/#/d53qruy

and a quick doodle before going to bed
scanner back to work
Hi people passing by
I hope everyone is good with their art ! Personally I'm struggling everyday and I'm so slow but I'm learning everyday a little something, step by step
I'm going back to basics but I'm a little lost with all these things to learn XD
If you're kind enough, maybe you'll leave some tips, critics, comments, I take everything that can make me progress !
I would also enjoy having a cup of tea with you and talk about the last euro 2012 game (Portugal won woot !!!) or about video games, movies, even about how long you've been able to bear the Epic sax guy 10 hours video ! XD
Anyway, have a great day and let's work out our skills
PS: sorry for the crappy scans and English o_O
Thank you very much ! Be sure I'll show you more (hoping I will improve as well XD)
I checked your sketchbook and DA and damn you're good !
I love your line drawing so much, it's strong and gentle at the same time. Tomorrow I'll take some time to read your posts.
And OMG you're only 16 *___*
You motivate me to draw more and reach your level
Some more sketchbook pages when I don't have any clients in the shop I'm working in
Sorry again for the bad quality
I'm lost with the way I'm painting because we can see the brush strokes too much and I want it to be smoother. Gotta find out how XD
crappy sketch : /
a nose and a portrait study made in the "I don't care" mode (don't be afraid, don't think too much and don't stop to paint) XD

beginning of something before going to bed
Haha I've been pretty dead lately, very busy summer o_O
Here is a quick study
lips study, almost an hour
Muito obrigado, é de maior qualidade porque passei quase o meu verao inteiro nesta pintura no ano passado
E tambem esta tecnica foi aprendida num curso com o exelentissimo Serge Birault aka Papaninja
Hi there, I've been very busy lately @_@
I have a few pages to scan and a study to finish though
Here is a 5 minuts sketch, I'm glad to see that I'm a little bit quicker
Like everyone says it's not more about talent, but about pratice and hard work !
Let's do our best
Hehe, study again !
I'm proud of this one because it's the first one I did without using the color picker at all !
Before I used to correct my colours by picking the original picture's colours.
Ok it's hard but it helped me understanding colours a bit or at least observe them and trying to understand XD
