    a-k-m's sketchbook (pls help me improving)

    Hello,

    I'm new to this forum. I bought my Wacom Bamboo tablet about a month ago and did some paintings.
    Now I wanna share them to get some critics on it. The people surrounding me are not able to give honest critics and therefore I keep stuck at the same level.

    Enough talk, here're the pictures:

    thanks... well, I suck at drawing people... that's why I'm always drawing environments. But yeah, I guess I have to practice that as well

    You do seem to have some understanding how the perspectives work especially with environments just like your recent painting today. What can help you to improve your skills are: 1) lots of sketches with just pen on paper or wacom. This will help you to get a grasp on how forms and shapes work hencefore you can get proportion sizes right in your drawings. 2) Study colors. Lots of studies. This helps you to paint colors better because colors do speak a lot of volume in how well you paint and draw. The best way to do that is to paint from life. Mix colors and see colors more. 3) Show your work in progresses rather than finished works in the early stage. That way, we can help you more to see how you work and how you can improve the way you work to become a better artist.

    Hope all of that helped you.

    Great landscapes! I especially like the one with the fog on the lake and the most recent. I think you ought to take a look at canine anatomy, though - the limbs on the dog-creature pic seem pretty blob-like and undefined.
