b . one --- does odd have colors
Good sirs, this site rocks!! that was my first impression a moon or two past, and nothing since has proved me wrong.
SO here I go on my own, exposed and new and i hope you'll find some stuff in here that you like --- but I have a lot to learn still so any and all crit is greatly appreciated!! Big thing in my life, learning is
I have discovered in drawing and painting rare moments without time, I fall away but I am there completely --- and sometimes, just sometimes, on the paper something seems to somehow gain a life of it's own and I'm there, whipped along for the ride --- crazy fantastic!!!
(rambling pld: )
anyway, I'll try to opdate regurlarly --- and sorry for the crappy quality. I don't have a scanner and my camera's shite, so I've adjusted the drawings in PS - but maybe for the worse as I'm a noob at these things (so if nothing is showing, that's why.. ) --- if anyone prefers to see uploads where i haven't tampered with them (mostly "adjust levels auto" whatever that is but it did like a contrast thing) then holler and I'll put it up here.
My time's up, hope you see some things that you enjoy and plz --- give it to me straight!
(it's new and old, sketches, drawings, doodles, paints and WIPs in no particular order)

your images are way too big, shrink them down a bit so we can see the whole thing at once

Welcome to CA. I like pics 2 and 3 the best, they have the most promise. Youve got skills, push your self to do more life studies, figure, and anatomy studies as well. And also keep up with drawing from your imagination. Keep up the good work.

Envisor: thanx for the crit!
After discovering CA I have been greatly inspired!!! I've hunted threads and read critz and comments and already I'm beginning to drawing more from life so hopefully I'll be able to show some new stuff soon
In the meantime here's an update old things old and not so old...

When did you create all of these pictures o__O;?
There is a huge gap in quality in alot of these pictures, and it just has me wonder :X
April 12th, 2007 #9
By quality do you mean as in poor quality of image? Or are you asking how long i have been drawing for and when I drew them?
If your are enquiring about the image quality I already plan to buy a scanner.
If you want to see any or all of the uploaded images uncut and unchanged speak the word.
I have been drawing for most of my life - which takes us close to 30 yrs. there has been gabs of course - but never for too long. I have drawn what i could see or imagine, what caught my facination and anything I needed to express, for better and worse, but have never recieved any formal training.
In 3 periods the oldest pieces here (mid '90) are yin/yan, darkness & chick in last post, and ancientman & brokenage in post1. Heavenhell (3rd post) is newest along with dino, woman with doodleman on her face, doodledance, and surrender (all post1). The rest fall somewhere in between and are mainly inspired mainly by Brian Froud and Alan Lee though generally I have not gained inspiration from a single source (except that i have worked far more with pencil than any other medium).
The treeman face last image last post is a tatoo i drew to a mate in Canada
Also my mood, focus & energy (and patience) plays a part to determine the style, study & expression -- maybe that also seems to make the quality differ?

After seeing some great skills and technique - and some gut and daring - in this forum i have been motivated anew to try ink.
Here's a piece i am working on now...
If I knew how, I would write this after the image, but well...
One of the things that are helping me out lots is working with my mental perspective. I don't know for you guys but me when I had started drawing something and found myself pleased with the process, I would also begin to feel uneasy about mucking up the rest...
Now when I begin something new or come back to something in progress, I say to myself, 'tis just a drawing.
don't know if you catch my drift, but this helps me relax and not stress about the product, but rather be in the process... which allows me to draw to the best of my ability... it like flows better --- rambling again
C&C very welcome!!

Just playing around on CA trying to figure out how to write stuff between and after images... here I try it with a pencil drawing about a year old...
(should now be writing underneath it)
And now the full drawing, and here i've one with the contrastthing in PS... tell me what you prefer plz
oh and the paper is twice printing paper size
I don't really like the sideeffects when I contrast the drawing, but on the picture I feel it lose a bit o'contrast --- soon to buy that scanner...
and to those who doesn't know yet, in order to write after images got to use the vB code list http://www.conceptart.org/forums/misc.php?do=bbcode

Love the last image, plus the dragon atop the castle/hill thingie - those rocked my day. You sure have some patience sitting with those little details!
Best advice I can give at this point is to make some anatomy studies. Keep it up!
April 15th, 2007 #13
Dragonsnail: ThanXaMillion for the kudos!!
Yeah I do have a lot of patience --- guess that's what you need when you don't have talent...
I know about the anatomy studies but thanx for pointing it out anyway!
The update... first a Mucha from '03 --- yeah i know its left claw looks odd it was supposed to be clutching a branch or something... maybe if I had finished it, it would show better... but got bored
and a faery from '05 from ref
and an oold one (start '90ies)
and a sketch a couple o yrs old...
like always, give it to me straight
