My name is Chasen, I'm having big hopes of becoming an illustrator and concept artist working in the industry helping create amazing products that many will enjoy ! I'm still in high school so I'm pretty much largely a beginner but I'm hoping to grip a very firm hold of basics and fundamentals before high school is over ! I only have three more years so I have to work extremely hard !!
You have a tendency to make arms and legs too thick. If you're not already, I suggest finding a life drawing class somewhere and doing that for a while. If you don't have any available to you, then just draw people on the street or at school.
Yeah, I've noticed some weird tendencies with various regions of my anatomy which will hopefully be smoothed out during the summer, I'm ordering 130$ worth of various books to study over the summer. I'll try to find some life drawing sessions but I'm not sure if they have some sort of age limit since I'm under 18 years old...haha. Even then I've already planned to study figures from photographs this summer as well so hopefully that will be an ok substitute...
Sketch of a girl, I think i might do some more designs for her in the near future. I was thinking kind of a cyber chick kinda feel. Her skin is a little air brushy since I tried a more airbrushed approach but I think next time I'll use the hard round and harden up some edges. Some facial planes are off aswell..but She was really fun to do
I've been observing your sketches for a while and it looks like your hard work is beginning to payoff. Good work on the digital painting(man with hat) and your drawing of the girl with the glasses. In general your work still needs to be more loose though. Keep practicing, lots of gesture and life drawing will take you to the next level. Also don't be hard on yourself if the results you want, don't come immediately, sometimes it takes a while for our brains to absorb what we've been practicing.
Yeah, everything is slowly starting to fall into place so I've just gotta quicken the pace a bit and keep on. I've looked at a lot of my older stuff and have been thinking, "eww.". SO hopefully there will be many more 'eww's in the future haha. I can see what you mean as well with keeping my work loose, the painting with the man in the hat has a very 'photoshopy' look to it. I tried to fix it but I didn't know how to exactly fix it...Anyways thanks for the nice feedback I appreciate it.
So the entire summer literally everyday I have just been drawing, and drawing, usually from when I wake-up till around night time ! So I've been working really hard and I'm excited that my work is becoming more advanced ! Literally most of my work I've posted on here - if not all- is pretty bad, which is amazing since I can now point out my own flaws !! Very exciting !! I've filled up 4 sketch books this summer with just tons and tons of studies,doodles,ect. So hopefully I am doing alright so when I finish High School in another three years I will be able to continue onto art school and beyond !
So since I've been doing all of these studies this summer, I haven't really gotten a chance to do the thing I love, concepts ! So I did a little thumbnail character sketch and I'm pretty happy with it ! I know the pants are iffy looking but I need to move back into my loomis studies for heads Not a terribly interesting character but I just wanted something basic to start out on...
You're improving really quickly! That last portrait is phenomenal I like your renderings too, except that grayish highlight around the middle of the green apple which doesn't make a lot of sense to me (but I'm no expert at painting so check your reference I'm not to be too trusted ) Anyway keep it up! You're doing great!
