    Ice Citadel WIP

    This is the finished landscape. They are the twin cities of Garlsond and Elantra. I am very proud of myself for finishing this. There was a time when I thought I Couldnt do something like this. Now I know I was wrong.

    nice start, your on the road to improvement. Good design elements in the last lot. Aside from that i see your lines are a little 'woolly', i can srota tell that everyline is made from a hundred smaller ones. Before you next start sketchin do some exercises to increase your line confidence.

    Like do a line of dots down the left side of your paper evenly spaced, and then the same down the right. Join each, left to right, in one smooth action to make a straight a line as possible. After a while you will become a human ruler. Practise similar things with shapes and stuff. Your drawings wil become more confident with it.

    I used to do it tbh. I did some exercises like i just said, but the most important thing i did at the time was scrap the pencil for awhile. Its just too safe and you ended up fiddling with drawings for too long. Get a tech pen or something where mistakes cant be fixed or reworked and just draw everyday. Every stroke will become more important to you!

    These are a few I did for the EOW, Environment of the Week. the Drunken Fairy got in, the Sky Defence didnt, because I didnt read the fine print about how to add the picture! And the Two Cities I didnt finish in time.

    I havn't posted anything here for a while, stuff got in the way, but I'm hopefully back on track now. Lets see if I can figure this out...

    The first was an idea for a race of people called Lorekeepers. They were magical beings who came into existence to deliver Orbs of Knowledge to the deserving.

    For the second, I am taking life drawing classes and this is from one of the pictures I brought home with me the other week. Still needs working on.

    Anyway, thats all for now.
