Hi everybody, I'm a new kid on the forum.
I'm a 25-year old student gamedesign in the Netherlands who wants to get better at conceptart.
I've been drawing for around 3 years now and I started out with manga and anime styles. Those styles really started to nag me, but before I knew it the trick had already gotten into my hands. I've been trying like mad to get it away. So you'll see those influences in my art, but I don't need it anymore and I want to move on.
To cure that, my teachers adviced me to not draw for an entire month so I would be able to start over again with hands that we're not so used to the Asian style that much anymore. It resulted in some horrible figure drawings, but I want to push on. Since then, a month ago, I've been studying the human form, faces and muscles and lighting, as well as environments and speedpaintings to improve on a wider range of skills.
I also am terrible at coloring and I have near to no sense of colors, so I need work on that as well.
Well, enough with the introductions. I'll try to update this as much as I can, but it will be a bit hard for starters since I dont have my own internet connection.
What am I doing here?
I want to improve. I want people to rip whatever I draw to shreds and let me know what I need to work on. Shove me down the toilet, obliterate me and make me get better. I want to become good and I'm willing to do anything for it. I hoped to get mad at myself and disappointed, so I can push on to another level and become good at the art that I want to do and the things I want to show the world.
So, nice to meet you all and um.. well.. make me eat dust (..but please do give me advices and constructive crits Telling me I suck gets me knowhere, but telling me why I suck and how to fix it gets me further)
Things I know about this one (see the manga style? Yurk.. get it off!) is.. I need to fix hands. Badly.
Light and color study in OC3. My first speedpaintish thing.
Yark, I'll leave it at that. I'll scan some more recent stuff soon and post it. This is all at least 4 months old, but I can still use advice.
