    Mattīs Sketchbook

    Hey guys! I am a complete newbe in the forum. I thought I could just start my own Sketchbook and share my stuff with you people. I have been drawing for about 5 years, but since I have finished secondary school, about half a year ago, I have been seriously focusing on my self-teaching drawing studies, in order to get a job in the Concept Art Industry. I very appreciate any critique, piece of advice or comment Thank you for your visit on my sketchbook

    These are my latest digital paintings.

    These works are amazing! I am a huge fan of zombies.
    I know you'll say "practice!" but how did you start off with sketching and digital painting? I want to do my own zombie army!

    Keep up the great work

    Hey Charlotteis! Thanks for your compliment. Hmm basically I started just sketching around. At the very beginning you have to understand very basic forms, a basic sense for 3 dimensionality and your practical drawing skill. With practical drawing skill I mean your abbility to draw clean and precise lines, what comes naturally after you drew a lot. For some technic stuff you can check "EPISODE 36 Traditional Mediums" of the FZD School Channel on youtube. You find a lot of great help in the internet, particulary for beginners. Check out for example sycras channel and web side. Of course the skills that i mentioned before come after time but it is very important to reflectate a lot about your work, to use a tonne of reference pictures and let other people judge your stuff, because at a low skill level many people will be able to point out some of your mistakes. Your abbility to judge yourself and to "see" the world around will grow by time. You will probably experience that you draw sth that you really like and you dont know how it would be improvable but some time afterwards you ll smile and understand that its quite creppy. I actually started just practicing my drawing skill. I seriously study the colour and painting stuff since a few month now and its till now my weakest point. I think its more important to understand more about drawing before you start painting but this is just my point of view. But all in all the most basic and important aspekt of studying drawing your passion for it. If you love what you do and you have enough willpower to keep on practicing and to sacrifice other stuff as playing computergames you will succed after some time. So try to get inspired, buy yourself a sketchbook and draw. Good luck!

    Kick-ass work, man! Only thing i can say is watch your saturation ( go easy on it and vary it depending on where the light is coming from.) and your painting is a bit muddy, but i guess that may just come with motor controls gained over time that we will both gain eventually.

    Looks great! The only thing I can think of is it might be nice to see some darker shadows, just to push the contrast a little and make the characters pop more.

    I kept on working on the guy from yesterday. I got some valuable critique in the critique section about the light stirking from the side, the too dark shadows and my missing knowledge about the planes of the face. May Im going to apply it on this one when i find time or I ll just think about it in my next painting.
