    Marmaladde's Sketchbook

    Hello! I'm glad to finally be starting a sketchbook here on ConceptArt. I just turned 15 years old and I have been taking art seriously for about 3 years. I focus mainly on realism. I want to become a concept artist for videogames when I'm older. I appreciate all the feedback, thank you.

    Here is something I painted recently. I have been trying to improve my facial structure. I'm not very fond of this piece because I rushed the water a bit, but it was good practice.

    My latest painting. I am trying to experiment with using colors straight on instead of grey-scale like I'm used to.

    Welcome to the forum Marmaladde. Looks like you're off to a good start.Your faces are pretty solid, and they stick out as being a strength for you. Keep working on them, but also show some different angles, instead of just straight-forward (you may be doing a ton of others, but I'm just basing my advice on what's here).

    As to your question, yes, gesture study is very important, most especially if it's from reference or life. Make sure to work in any figure study you can, even if it's just pausing movies and drawing the people there.

    Draw as much as you can, with as much pure study as you can manage (imagination drawing is fine, but it shouldn't be more than half of your work at this point). Make sure to draw every day, even if it's just for a little while. One thing you might do is draw something as soon as you wake up in the morning, even if it's just a 15 minute sketch, to let your brain start working in that direction.

    Keep at it and good luck.

    Here's my latest painting. It was a WWI propaganda poster for history class.

    SeraphSword- For some reason I keep getting an error when I try to post a reply to you. Thank you for the advice! I really appreciate it. I like your idea about drawing in the morning, I think that will help a lot. Thanks again!
