Holy hell guys, I am nervous as I type this. Like, legit shaky.
So I was here a while back with a sketchbook thread ( http://www.conceptart.org/showthread.php?p=3176035 ), and I did my best to post and stay active and stay motivated but I didn't last long to be honest, I was just so freaked out when I looked at other people's work. It was just so damn good, I felt utterly insignificant. As if I'd done something irreversibly wrong with my art and I'd never succeed in this field.
That was then though, and this is now, and I'm back to try and get involved here again. I need a community. I need to grow that thick skin, I could use some motivation, and I need someone to tell me what to study and how to try to fix the downfalls I know I have. I know I have a long way to go, but I'm sure I can do this. With you guys, with my determination, with the knowledge that ever since I can remember I was designing monsters and games. But I know that isn't a free pass, I will work my ass off if you guys tell me to. All I want is to build worlds. I'm that little bit older now at nearly 18, and I think I'm ready to start this engine up again. Kinda missed you guys.
So to start off I'm just gonna be posting my bests and worsts, tell me what's good, what's bad, I gotta learn to objectify this stuff or else if I ever get this job I'll just be sat there crying at my client like "HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT BEHEHUHUAH", so yeah. Not good. Also, colour for me is a pretty huge learning curve, I am very sluggish with it and have really only within the last month or so started tentatively playing with it. Any guidance you can give me with regard to it would be a huge help!
Will start uploading sketchbook stuff soon, I just don't have any to hand at the minute and my brain is exhausted.
PS: All of this stuff was done within the a year ago.
PPS: The pencil sketch and the rough yellowy PhotoShop sky scape sketch are my exercising my ability to work without ref.
