    The long and tedious journey of Atr4tus

    Hi guys

    After a time of creepstalking i finally got the courage to make a sketchbook threat myself.
    There's not much to say about me, 21, self-taught (maybe a year serius now) and tryhing hard to get better.

    As far as I'm see, you're not doing anything wrong but there's room for improvement..

    I don't feel that I'm on a good enough level to tell you anything.. Maybe you can try to put a story into your work? an enviroment or characters interacting with eachother.? (Easier said then done, i know...) When I feel stuck I just do something completely diffrent and try out new stuff. Anyways, Thats my horrible attempt at helping you keep drawing! Looking forward to seeing more of your artwork

    You're probably right.. but i'm too concerned with stuff like technique and basics to focuse on design let alone storytelling - gonna try nonetheless

    I really like these drawings and paintings, especially the quality your brush strokes have on the coloured images. I do agree that the designs could do with more development because what you have is really interesting and it would be cool to see them more fleshed out. Awesome work so far!

    I was going to say just look out for depth in your drawings but you're already leveling up on that one. AAhhh, I have no advice haha. Just keep drawing everyday and you're definitely going to improve. I already see you have good concept ideas and your environments are looking mighty rad.

    Oh, watch out for the anatomy around the pectorals on the last drawing. It may just be the shading, but it's slightly out of angle or shaped illogically in proportion to the body.

    You have a good understanding of rendering, respect. I don´t haha. So, not sure if I am qualified enough to give advice, but I think maybe you could stir things up a bit. You seem quite settled in a way of doing things, maybe you should try different mediums, different subjects, some life drawing, use different software etc. Go a bit wild, discover something and then incorporate it into what you have.

    Hi guy, I'm really busy once again, so nothing great this time..
    The birthday of my girlfriend is coming up and she is (still) really into pokemon.
    Needs a lot of fixing and the tail is killing me, but I think this could turn out okay:

    I'm gonna apply some sort of oil-paint filter when it's finished and turn it into an bookmark or something like that.
    A book and selfmade bookmark.. not really groudbreaking but it should do
