1 of 3 warhamer fan art I have been working on for fun. This one is still kinda rough, but I think I'll leave it that way and focus more on the other which are turning out better. This one was really just about exploring composition.

Oh man, cool to see lessons from someone who's had some of the same teachers. Seriously laughed when I saw that fish everyone draws in the foundation classes
I think you are really getting there dude. I'd say refocus your energy from concept and subject matter a bit and instead start a new painting in order to learn a new technique or play with an idea. What I think you'd benefit most from at the moment is studying lighting and form (two are very connected after all).
Failures and mistakes are more important in my mind that finished pieces - overall you learn more from what you've done wrong than what you've done right.
We'll have to hit up some figure drawing soon man! Peace.

Great point about light and form, As I have been painting basic shapes in oils the last 2 weeks I have noticed a huge improvement in all my work, I'll try to post some of the stuff I have done since then up soon. Thanks for the feedback, now that you point it out, I would have to say I agree with you, and am going to work on that.

Here arer some totally out of order 30 minute or less speed paints, from the last month or 2. Lots of garbage, but some are finally working I think! The spyline one was a quick study off of new media coloring book lines, but I can't find who to credit now
The first landscape was 10 minutes on idiot apathy's brushes, just getting a feel for them.

Spent a bit of time on this one, it was VERY fun, although probably to dark.

I'd say grab yer pencils and hit the page... the computer stuff, although fun may be retarding your development. You see the strongest sketchbooks around here start with somebody just sketching stuff from life. Once you start becoming fluent with anatomy and perspective then you'll be able to use the computer to its full advantage.
Keep the posts coming!
Freximus Draws <----Sketchbook

I totally agree, and have been at the pencils hard for about 2 weeks. Thanks for the feedback, I am trying to draw for minimum 4 hours a day now. I need to get to where I can draw fast and correct instead of having to beat it into submission... Or not get it right at all

I agree with freximus here, to do more pencil studies first. As shiny and tempting as photoshop is, at this point i think it'd do more to distract than to help (though of course, it doesnt hurt to learn how to use the program early on... but dont let it overwhelm you!)
It helped me a lot when i ceased my photoshop fun for a while and really kept up with a sketchbook. I imagined sketching as if i were painting something, except it was with a pencil and just in black and white. By the way, many of your black and white cgs were my favorites of this batch-- just sticking to black and whites, whether its cg or pencil, helps you get away from the pretty-but-unnecessary colors and lets you concentrate on the form, the value, the composition, etc... It's much better for learning, because then you can add in the colors later. Images can go without color, but not without value... Continuing that thought, keep doing sketches so you can improve not just your anatomy skills, but your understanding of other fundamentals as well. Then, having understood better those building blocks, the next time you're on photoshop you'll find that it is much easier to paint.
Now, that was just my own experience. Hope it helps

Did my first oil (or any non-digital for that matter) painting two months ago. Here is a semi-cronological listing of the last 2 months of studying oil painting.
OK, OFF TO DRAW!!! PAPER + PENCILS + IPOD = MORE POSTS COMING SOON!!!

CHOW82- I spent quite a bit of time on this. Great learning, lots of stuff I learned for the next one!
UPDATE October 21st 2007 I just wanted to let anyone who is reading in here that I am still alive and drawing my ass off! I have been trying to spend more time studying and drawing and painting, and have limited my internet time to 5 minutes a day, so I have not been updating this. I will likely dump a whole bunch of stuff soon, but I didn't want to make a new post and bump this thread to the top with no art.

I think the works in this thread show how muhc you have developed. Its a good idea to stay on this path, you are showing gradual improvement. It looks to me like you are studying others, and learning from your mistakes. I encourage you to keep at it and post more pics as you develop.
