    Found my passion late in life, but I found it. - Moh's Sketchbook

    Hey everybody!

    I'm 20yrs old residing in Ontario, Canada. It's been a hard last couple of years both academically and personally. Switched between Business and Software Engineering programs at different universities and wasted a lot of money..
    Finally just went for it and going into Game Design this year and I've found what I have always wanted to do. Never had the chance to take art in high school (all math/science) so up to this point I've had to learn on my own

    However, being so far behind I always lack motivation and personal life at home is always getting in the way but I am trying and scared that It will be hard as ever to make it into this industry, anyway let's start this off! Please need all criticism to make myself better at this..! Thanks for viewing!


    My first few Concept Art pieces when I first got a tablet:

    Just a comment to say, how is 20 years old late in life by any sense of the phrase? You're a pup!

    Work hard at this stuff. You have plenty of time. And you're not "behind" either.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    thanks for the support!
    I see all my friends excelling in their industries and almost going to graduate school and I just feel behind compared to them is all

    thanks again!

    Dude…. seriously wtf!!! If 20 years is old then I should be a corpse by your standards!
    Seriously though, apply yourself and you can do great things.

    Haha well I just see a lot of good young artists around me so I feel like that!
    But yes, I am slowly learning!

    Wow, that mountain is stunning! I love the colors! Good work there, man.

    And well, when I clicked I thought you'd be 60 or something.

    Looks nice man. Focus on where your want your light to come from, and if you have other illuminating lights in the picture, keep those in mind as well. I love the character design of the knight with floating torso. The other knight is nice too. Try some figure studies to lock the proportion down a bit more.

    I love the improvement! Keep up the excellent work.

    Brother your work keeps getting better and better keep it up. I also found my passion late in life. A lot of indecisions and none sense but pretty much fear. It kept me back for so long. Now at 32 years of age I'm back working at my craft everyday trying to make up for lost time. I will make my dream a reality and if you keep working at yours it will happen to you too.

    If we were talking about catching chicken pox, then 20 years old (21 now) might be considered late in life. But that's about the only time that applies. Christ, you're barely out of high school. I'd kill to be 21 again and get to do things over, and I'm only 29 myself.

    But you know what, if feeling old and "behind" is what caused you to work so hard and make such huge strides in only one year, then keep at it! Yeah, you old geezer! >.>

    thanks for the nice comments Zardi!!
    I realized 21 may not be that old but sometimes thats good and bad! good like you said it pushes me harder to get better but sometimes also makes me feel like I won't make it or I'm not on the right track, its a battle!

    Thanks again
