Hello my name is Bakari.
I've known about conceptart.org for a while but I wasn't able to get my account activated until recently. Even though i did not post on this site before I still documented my art. I call this "Stitches and Tears" because any improvement is as important as any mistake such as stitches and tears.Nearing the end of my high school career I'm hoping to go to an art college for illustration design/entertainment design. I hope to see improvement by consistently drawing/painting. Comments, analysis, and/or advice are welcome.

figure Drawing and environment painting from today and yesterday. a problem with painting with me is that it's difficult for me to refine it and sometimes my colors seem washed out. these were made over my break and i hope i can still continue with school around.
Painting of a Boeing 777 and a Fairchild C-123 Provider. Tried two different methods with each of these paintings and both were made with digital water color. Diving in and painting seems easier than making line work then painting, its probably just the way I'm thinking with the process.
@ dragning: Thank you dragning, I have looked at some of Scott Robertson's instructional works and I also own one of his books, "The Skillful Huntsman". For the 3D form I followed Feng Zhu's GnomonWorkshop video series and studied "handprint: perspective in the world".
@ AnuBird: Thank you
Here are some of my recent sketches.
Drawing fatigues me quite quickly, but hopefully I'll build more Endurance over time.
These painting just went wrong. I'm having trouble comprehending how people pick interesting colors and textures and end up with an interesting painting. I guess one of the main challenges of being an artist is being patient and diligent.
