    Cool Help Me And I'll Help Myself

    Hey,

    I'm a relatively new member of this site. I have been lurking for a while now and I have seen some people that have made some amazing progress with their art.

    That said, I was wondering if anyone of you guys have some suggestions on resources like books, websites, etc on, for example anatomy, the head and perspective. You know, general things to help me learn and understand everything a bit better.
    Anything is appreciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    Post art so we know where you're at.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    This one was just to test if i could make a creature head, (in this case a dragon), look right in perspective.

    These are quite good. What is missing now is the ability to either have the skills to paint details or to have the patience to paint details Don't know what you are lacking

    The values of the landscape work fine, the colors of the character is also good and the anatomy of the dragon head is good too. If you'd just spend some more time on each of these they will turn out very solid - I'm sure.

    You're asking for resources - http://www.ctrlpaint.com/ is a very good one. Also watch videos on Youtube. One video leads to the other and so on.

    Haha! Well... I guess I'll just push myself to try new and more intricate stuff then.

    I'll search through youtube for some videos though.

    Thanks
