Not sure if it quite counts for NSFW but I suppose even though there's a lack of features with the girl there's no clothes.
Hi, I'm new to this forum but would like to start with saying that the work I see on her is great and apologise if this isn't suitable for this forum or its posted in the wrong place.
These are just a couple of examples of some of my newer art, all done in photoshop and was looking for some opinions on them.
Little about me - I'm self taught with everything and know I'm far from perfect with a LOT of what i attempt to do. Being self taught I have a lot of problems trying to figure out how to do things. I've never done a colour wheel in school and have trouble visualizing how to get the desired effect atleast 90% of the time and how colours blend.
I'm no good with perspective. It takes me a very long time to do a decent human figure and most of the time it looks flat and lifeless. I can't do backgrounds or environments well at all and most of the time I cheat it by making it foggy or something along those lines. and I could go on and on.
So, for someone like me who can't readily go take an art class, what could someone suggest to do to try and grasp some of these concepts? I try to do the posemaniacs 30second quick pose tool as often as i can but it doesn't quite seem to help for people, but my bigger concern is about environments and landscapes and colours. could anyone point me to anything or give me any advice on how i could work on these things?
I'd love for any advice anyone could give and any critique. I have a lot to work on. I really want to make a career out of art in some manner and feel I have the potential to do much more and better, but i just don't have any direction or idea of how to improve in certain areas, which just leads to frustration.
If you like i have a 'gallery' at http://abominablegod.newgrounds.com/art/ if you are interested in seeing older, less refined work.
