    Mipllex - want to be artist

    Hi, I'm kinda new here and this is my first sketchbook, well anywhere(for reals)

    I'm 24y and desperately trying to break through the "I don't like my level of quality" barrier and get into the "I enjoy doing this, - brain please reward me with dopamine"

    Suggestions what to do differently are wanted and appreciated.

    experimenting with cool and warm colors

    hey man. That looks quite decent!
    Im not painting yet so i cant really give you any advice.
    I know that feel tho^^ when im drawing something i feel so stressed at the start and if i dont end up with a good result it really has quite an impact on my mood and my self esteem.
    How long have you been doing this so far?

    Hey, thanks man.
    I've been doing this for 2-3 years with small progress. I've advanced only in drawing from references and stuck in a hole with imaginative drawings. I blame it on not having a clear one style that I like, it's a mix of 3.4 artists and they tend to contradict each other a bit.
    Why aren't you painting yet? What's your goal for drawing?

    +Zauselbart
    Thanks, I'll take up your advice and focus on volumes for an intense study session. I'm very bad with that it looks, think cause i'm too zoomed in when i do it.
    The colors i'm trying to keep the values but go a bit wild with hues.

    not happy with this at all. started off drawing from different monitors then put together for comparison, not happy at all.

    well at the moment im just drawing a lot, i feel like its a good basis.Im not so interested in the art aspect but more in designing stuff and creating things that dont exist.I try to get a lot of sci fi stuff on paper to paint on top of them when i start painting in a few month or so.I havent done any foundation exercises so far but i really should...

    I'm tearing myself up with Photoshop vs Painter. None are perfect, both have stuff that i like.

    This one's just photo reference lines, and lighting and random color play. I like rendering a bit better with painter for obvious reasons.

    do you normally go in with colours or do you sketch it out first? I'm curious to see your steps in order to give you some advice on painting portraiture.

    It depends. But Mostly if I go for rendering I try to do minimal lines. I don't have any Line-art to speak of. Either it's too chicken scratchy or too clean to the point with no style or soul.

    Well guess what i did before i did that face He's one of the artist styles I adore, well part of it he's 1/3 or 1.5/3 of it

    But I was battle-ing with the brush... if i did slow or normal strokes it went all jittery inside and weird... so i had to watch my every stroke.

    I think perhaps your problem here is that you're trying to jump straight into the deep end with colours. The reference you're using is actually quite difficult because it's very low resolution and kinda hard to tell what's going on.

    Best to first understand what's happening in the picture; break it down into shapes and always determine the light source before you start.

    1. Simplify! What are the basic lines and positions on this face?
    2. Why are the shadows where they are?
    3. How does the lighting size and direction affect what you see?

    I think you're starting out and really in the begining stage.
    So I advice you to read art read books.
    Andrew Loomis books are awesome. Because it's very easy to understand.
    /Succesful drawing is good to start/
    His books are available for download everywhere in internet.
    Or you can buy it in amazon if you want to read real book.

    so Goodluck!
