As I was looking through your work, I checked on your age and your location. I though to myself, "This guy looks like he might make for a very good student." It is part of what prompted my response as well as wanting to encourage someone who shows potential.
I did not single myself out as the person you should study with because I didn’t know where you saw yourself going artistically and certainly did not want to presume myself the correct direction for you to go. I am in the classification of fine artist working in traditional media as opposed to being for instance a concept artist working primarily digitally.
If you feel that by looking at my work it is a direction you would like to push toward contact me via e-mail
and we will discuss the possibly of such study further. If not that is certainly fine and I encourage you to find someone who is working more similar to what you can see yourself doing and study with them. Either way I hope to check in on occasion and see the new growth you have made no matter what the direction.
Congratulations pixel, the attention is well deserved. Youve really been putting your all into your work lately and thats admirable. One detail however, is that your faces seem flat. Youve trained your eye pretty well but I think you should glance over some of the more basic forms. Theres similiar mistakes, for example the perspective of the contours or placement/proportion of the features. While it has definatly improved, one look back wouldnt hurt. Keep it up
I intened to. This winter break I have started to go back to my anatomy books. I got 5 books for Christmas. (Am getting, whatev)
And Flynt, I read your site and it said Should expect to work in Years at a time- However, I am only in tenth grade in Highschool. True, I enjoy digital, but I feel traditional is always more important. Kids don't learn on tablets, they learn with pencils. I'll look into your workshops and things, but the Atelier might have to hold off until I'm well out of school. But I enjoy the fine arts very much (The classical stuff, not the new age crap).
I feel more that I could use your training- I am not sure if I would lean twoards the fine arts as a career, but the training I would consider an essential component into learning and keeping the old (the BEST way) alive.
"one look back wouldnt hurt"
Look for more than one dude, always!
Thanks for the attention you guys! I appreciate all of this.
happy birthday from me too. Im impressed by your talent, progress and skills at this point....Very nice indeed-
I think you should get some variety going though. You seem to do a lot of figurative work. Im sure thats a good thing and keep practicing and all that, but maybe you should do some more of those little environments! Maybe draw some props, vehicles.. practice perspective! there are so many ways to go and explore. I know it's easy to stick with the improvement of your figures and they're definitely getting somewhere but once again- try to do other stuff too. Thats all
Thread is not bad man, but i have to say i would like to see more gesture in your stuff. Push your poses. And less line work, need more underdrawing, figuring out where things go, pay attention do body and face planes. But you are coming along, stuff is looking good man i see improvment on each page.
one thing that REALLY bothers me about the work that you've posted here seems to indicate that your some kind of devil worshipper, or at the very least, a "Ne'er do well." Stars have FIVE points! because they're turned right side up, it's probably more of a wiccan kind of thing, BUT STILL! mr. evil mc evilness
In all seriousness you totally deserve the stars. you are a star. "Look to the future, for that is what makes today great." yeah, i GANKED that from a motivational poster.
Critique:My main crit for you PixelDragoon is that you need to take your time! You rush a lot! I got some advice from the Prague Workshop which was to render like a slug! Keep this in mind next time!
Comment: I can see those SP's are paying off as I see a bit of similarity which is very good, and your faces are maturer in their realism. The more your study influences your work the better and it shows in your work! Great!
erm other than that... I hope you attempt to kick my ass in the teen challenge
you sir, are pretty amazing.
i just joined and started looking around. i saw ure plea in something you posted and decided to look at ure stuff. somehow i took about 2 or more hours looking through this thread and all the pics, and reading some of the comments.
i was stuned. you have a very amazing dedication that i wish i had. you study the things you think you need too, which is great.
what amazes me also is your age. you have talent and dedication.
it is also entertaining to see how you have improved over time and each piece. your grouth is great and well.
im a junior at ochsa, an art high school, as i see you go to an art school (or something with a definite art program), which i believe is very great. but the problem at my school is that there seem to be very few dedicated artists. so many just want to slack off or mess around other than just study. of course, i can see that the overal level of dedication is probably more than an art class of a regular school. if people seem to slack all around you, or show little dedication - dont let that stop you, or stall you, in the least. also, always know that there is someone better and never feel satisfied if you are better than someone else. (its like an rpg with unlimited lvls, bosses, and secrets to find!!!)
never stop sketching man. you inspired me with my viewing of your growth and your dedication.
good job man. good job. btw ure better than me. i might have challenged (wrong word?) you at your skill from the begining of this thread, but not anymore.
i like the guy with the jacket and the wings.
-gassnake the forum noob.
nice sketchbook. I've just turned 16 too, it's nice to watch your progress!
as profil just said, you should work a bit more on these sketches, there all marvelous baginnings, but render a bit more and they'll turn out incredible!
I like your work. Figure study's have been a hassel for me but I have some decent work. Your style is great hands are also really difficult in my opinion because of the detail in every position. Keep up the work I hope to see more.
I feel like there has been a good improvement since you started your sketchbook, I like seeing your copies from the anatomy for the artist book (i think thats what tis called). My only comment I can make is, I know its just a sketchbook, but do try cleaning up your work alittle more, some of the rendered stuff is alittle messy. Keep up the good work.
Hey man, just got done looking through your sb and i'll say that i'm impressed with your progression. Don't worry about not being the best right now. You have some very solid work and, at 16, you have many years ahead to improve. Best of luck man.
Please stop by and support a fellow artist
