    Nukilik's quest for improvement

    Hey, guys! I'm almost ashamed to post here but..

    So, I'm really new to this digital painting/concept art stuff. Never had classes outside of some traditional drawing/painting. But I really wanna make any possible progress and maybe, someday, I'll start uderstanding how this all works.

    So here goes some really quick studies. Plan of keeping them coming, or else I won't get anywhere right?

    Very nice work here! These quick studies are very beautifully done. You did a great job of blocking in the values, which is a very useful skill to know. Keep it up, I can't wait to see more!

    dont be ashamed of yor skill, you already have a lot for start, and there is a lot of beginners, so dont be afraid. try anatomy and simple forms, try to paint or draw every day, but not too much, good luck!

    Good stuff, indeed your ability to block values is quite good! Try some anatomy study if your interested as well, I'd like to see how you do.

    looking forward to more work

    btw that pink thing to the right of the perfume bottle looks rather suspicious lol

    @Michelle Rakar - Thank you! I appreciate that! I still thin blocking the values is too hard, but that makes me feel better
    @Raiderukkus - That eases my insecurities a bit. Thanks
    @Psychobuddy -Will do! Thanks
    @CR Faerber - Thanks! I'll do that! Also, I'll agree that is one weird and suspicious pink candle, but that's all it is XD

    And, some more sketches and studies. Trying not to suck so hard. Sorry for the crappy quality.

    So I guess you dont have a scanner
    from what I can make out the skulls are pretty cool, I like the two dudes as well.
    Try painting some more people in photoshop next perhaps? Or even on canvas if you have access to materials

    keep up the good work!

    Like others have said, you do a good job blocking in the colors for your studies. I'd suggest continually measuring things as you go, some of the perspective and foreshortening is off on your still life.

    The images for your recent sketches are poor and pretty hard to see, so I can't give too much feedback. It looks like you're off to a good start with those figure drawings. Like I mentioned earlier, measure! The back of the crouched figure is off, the back is sticking out too much. I like your use of shadows and highlights. Seriously, better image quality next time, so it'll be easier to give feedback.

    I like the colored paintings...and I agree with everyone that really blocked the colors in well. The sketches of the animals are great too, I especially like the crane. I agree that some of the proportions look off on the figure drawing, the head looks to small to me on the last one, but I could be wrong. You are mush farther a long than I. I am just beginning.
    Looking forward to see what you post next

    OMG Yeah! Draw more keep practicing. Admit every day that you are not the best and just keep at it! Go soldier!

    Do a lot of work and your work will be as good as your ambitions.

    Thanks guys! And alright...no more poor quality pics. From now on I'll either use a scanner somewhere or post digital until mine is fixed. Sadly I did some anatomy studies but they were on paper so.. yeah, for now I have no way to post them.

    So, you can stay with this quick lame sketch of a warrior chinchila. It's a character from a friend, and I thought it was a chance to try something different, at least. Unfortunately it only ended up stressing my incapacity to properly paint characters *sigh*

    Hey, great to see some new pictures! I like the head of that creature. I also really like the texture in the background of your cougar and caribou. But, have you got your scanner fixed, yet? It would be nice to see those anatomy studies you said you had done on paper. I can't give much critique. I haven't done any painting, yet. Still working on my basic drawing skills...but please keep posting. It is always inspiring to see what other people are doing.

    Here's some quick gestures. I had to do them digitally which I'm not used to, so they're not very good, but I guess it's what I'll have to do for now. Until I get a scanner at least
