Hi, I decided to finally join up. Art is my passion, I have been working on my doodles and sketches and pieces in general for at least six years now.
I am striving to always improve my art, and i want to be an illustrator or concept artist, I am an art major in college, though i just started so i haven't actually had any college art classes yet. I have taken life drawing classes though.
I have been looking through other sketchbooks here and I see what my life drawing teacher meant about how I started the opposite way that most artists start/should start. I started with almost undefined things and lots of darkness, from that emerged to what was called very dark and odd. As of late I am working with much more color and trying different styles.
I love digital and using graphite and ultra thin tipped sharpies as far as preferred mediums go, though i mostly use mechanical pencils which I remember my art teacher detested. Painting isn't as much my thing, but i like watercolors and oils, acrylics not so much at the moment.
I am still working on realism, I feel I have improved a lot with it. Though I do wonder how much realism I should have in my art. I know many see it as important and I agree, but I think developed my own style. I always have drawn emotionally and have learned technical skills along the way. Any insight on realism or comments in general would be greatly appreciated.
Be prepared for many WIPs, a few of which I might post on the WIP showcase forum for help.
