    Great work dude! I wish I had gotten started when I was that young. Keep at it and you'll be at a professional level at a really young age.

    Thank you. I had this dream since I was little.
    Any area you think I should study next would be really helpful for me.

    Hey, an excellent sketchbook for your age.

    Right now I think it would help to work on your values a little more. Your black and white paintings look rather flat because the darks and lights aren't that well defined, they're too close to each other in terms of value. Being a bit bolder with the contrast would help you with that.

    Also, your pics are coming off as rather soft -- you said you use 100% hard brush? You might want to use a different brush, then, because your paintings look like they're blurred.

    That latest painting is really neat. The mech has a lot of personality in it's pose. Good job

    I agree with Umbra about the the brush strength. Revidescent gave me this great tip over here . You can really see the power of the hard brush.

    Hope this helps. Keep up the great work.

    I'm 21 about now I've just started to do things a bit properly but still not as good as you, I wish I saw how you were doing this so I can understand the progress but I wouldn't take your art. Your the 15 year old boy I wish I knew

    I wish i started so much younger, I'm rather deeply ashamed in comparison to that majestic level of work, such a unbelievable amount of skill for a 15 year old, astonishing work.

    If you keep working at it you'll indefinitely be able to get to whatever height of skill/level you wish to, and even get it as a job if you want.

    Thank you everyone, I can never learn enough. If you have the right level of motivation, hard work, and time. This should be a breeze.
    It takes 10000 hours (scientifically)to become a master in what you want to do. That should be enough to understand the journey, now its up to you to fill in the time.

    P.s I've turned 16 2 months ago.

    feel alot better in rendering mechs. I learnt that the more I force my self to draw, the worser the result. Moral of the story: Draw only when your body and mind are capable.

    Some really cool stuff going on here at the moment man. I've noticed that your rendering skills are really impressive. Would you say they've improved purely from practice or are there certain resources you've used? Although I think your designs are cool, i think you should look at the blog 'thumb war' by paul richards who explores how to use fundamentals to push designs to the next level.

    springofsea: Thank you so much

    MannionJJ: So far, pure practice. That's not to say I practice out of the blind, I usually have one of fundamentals in mind before I start working. Btw awesome suggestion, bookmarked.

    That being said, I've been so lazy lately. It's hard to pick back up the motivation I've had 1(almost 2) years ago, where should I go from here? my fundamentals still have to yet to blossom, would like some guide from this point on.

    Hey HaoningW, glad to see you updating frequently again! New paintings as impressive as always. On the motivation point try and find things on the internet to compete in which you find fun. Like the character and all the other challenges of the week in this forum. If you feel like you don´t have enough motivation because you have been out of it for a bit try to draw everyday and maybe it feels like a chore on a day you really dont feel like it but around 2 weeks you´ll be wanting to draw everyday again. Hope you do because you are absolutely amazing!

    daaamn fundamentals are boring. This site's layout is way too sophisticated for what it isn't, especially most of the social network features that feels forced and out of place. Not to mention the brown/black/blue colours has a lot to be desired. I wished they'd just keep things simple. :/

    because most people tend to ignore anything from the sketchbook section, at least it was when I first joined. Now this is probably thread just an art dump, with little to no progress being made. lol

    And yes I can see the issue on the guy's arm. I don't usually bother fixing old work, but I'll keep it in mind next time.

    Alrighty, 2 days ago was my birthday. which makes me 17 now. I've came a longggg way, thank you to those that have replied to a egotistic scrotum from 2 years ago and snapped his senses back into place. As well as a secret thanks to those who have been secretly following me over the years(please tell me someone did ;__; ), I was thrilled and surprised when I saw the 15k+ views on this thread, and I hope you guys continue to supporting me in the future.
