-GO TO LAST PAGES FOR LATEST WORK-
My name is Dane
Some stuff about me:
I'm a 15 year old artist (turning 16 in July) who has been drawing about everyday for almost a year and a half now.
I love watching animated films as well as making art.
Most of my sketches are imagination character sketches but I hope to do more life and anatomy studies as well as getting better at painting.
In at least 10 years I hope to be a freelance animator? Or concept artist or something?
Feel free to critique me!
I don't really know what i'm doing so correct me if I do something wrong on here.
Little bit of NSFW stuff
Well lets do this
Wow at 15 you are already leaps ahead of me at 21 :o ! Looks like you really have a passion for creating your own characters, and a knack for learning. I really dig the sketchbook pages with all the faces. Keep it up and I believe you will achieve great things!
I really cant believe it. The amount of support and effort in art this site has to offer is amazing. I took a look at your sketchbook and all that effort... Wow. People are so strive to learn. I'm glad I joined this site and started my sketchbook so I could have this kind of interaction where you're able to communicate about art to people and the process of seeing everyone improve. I honestly don't do very much anatomy studies or life drawing but seeing the vibe everyone has makes me want to push myself into that direction. I really believe that there is no such thing as failure. Everything is an experiment, just a chance to try something new. Thank you for liking my stuff! Ill try to look back at your sketchbook every so often for inspiration ahah.
Wow I wish I could have been this good when I was 15. I'm happy to see young people starting so early! Your characters look interesting and I can tell that they got their own special personalities. You're gonna go far
Wow the last painting really capitalizes your style! Only thing i see is maybe the neck shape is a bit funny? Like it's a bit long or flat? Were you drawing from reference/life or imagination? Still, really developing something here.
@taylorqt- It was purely from imagination and thanks a lot! I feel I'm still going to go through a lot of change and experiments to make up my style. His neck does look a little funny and it does seem flat! I was stuck on how to make it pop out a little more.
nice! i am so glad that you don't believe in failure. there is no failure, there is only learning. that's the most important thing; you're good to go. i'm sure you'll carry on. i love your line and your slouch in the little beings, it's full of life.
as for critique, i noticed you still have trouble blending in digital art. it'd do you good to check out ctrlpaint.com and this thread: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/pho...ng-ps-2-a.html. do some studies of things in your room, or some black and white value studies of paintings you admire. if you're using photoshop, and use windows, you might want to try PaintTool Sai, it's much more soft-hearted to painting.
overall though, you're good. i am looking forward to seeing you grow.
edit: have you seen Tekkon Kinkreet? it's an incredible animated movie, everything from Studio 4C is amazing.
