Reason: Giving a better introduction to my sketchbook
hey man, I love your work so far. Great start. loving the organic feel of your paintings. One thing that is throwing me off is that the forms are losing form and depth due to confused lighting situations. I'd make sure your lighting stays anchored in one spot and that you paint it in your painting off to the side to show where the light is coming from. But other than that... I'm pretty impressed for the first post. Keep at it man! I'll be watching.
Well as children we all drew, I just never stopped. I've gotten more serious during the last 2 years and about 6 months I came to the conclusion that I want to be an illustrator so I've really kicked it into high gear. Soooo I can't really put a number on how long but I think you can kinda understand how long I've worked hard at it.
Learning to use your tablet is something that you just need to screw around with to find what suits you
This is a sketch for an album cover. The band I'm doing this for is a Hardcore/Metal band and the theme of the album will be a blend of nature and faith(I hope that info might help if anyone would like to crit it). Got permission to post my process online so I thought it would be a good opportunity to post it here and se if I can get any help. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

This one is really good.
I assume its from a photo reference?
I'm in art school right now and they keep stressing how important it is to draw from real life, and avoid drawing from photos of possible.
Do you also do studies from real life objects and people?
Yeah it's from a movie reference.
I try to draw from life a lot but I don't really have friends that are willing to or have the time to sit still for long period of time so I can pant/draw them. Most of the stuff I do from life are apples, cans, small statues and stuff that fits on my desk. Sometimes I go and draw people at the buss stop, cafes or old people sitting on benches but those are very loose and quick sketches because I'm never sure of how much time I have.
Will be going to the US in a week and will be spending a lot of time absorbing in the atmosphere and filling up a sketchbook purely from life
