I often have a difficult time making a piece come together. I know some of my weak points, but not all. For the weak points I do know, I'm not sure how to go about improving them. I just want a mentor who can tell me whats wrong and where I can fix it so I can work on it. I've become quite frustrated with my art quite recently. I know I love art, and it's apart of my amibitions. It's just lately I've felt stuck. Whenever I try to draw I'll sketch out ideas and be dissatisfied with all of them. Even if I start to get something likable to me, it doesn't take long before something about it bugs me. It either something I need to improve on, or something I feel I know but can't point it out. I've tried practicing on my own, but it only gets me so far.
The main things I know I need to improve are. Composition, poses, fore-shorting, painting, color theory, female anatomy, landscapes. I mean if I have to I'm more then willing to start from the basics if I can have fun with art again, and enjoy it. Beside that I have a dream of one draw making art for games, be it my own, or someone else's. I'm certainly open to all styles and branches of the art community, and one ultimate goal for my art I hope to achieve someday is to have great variety in my art. I do particularly enjoy illustration though.
To get the best help possible, I'll showcase my best recent works, so that they can be critiqued and give an idea of how I draw.
Here are some examples of my work:
My most recent full painting digitally-
Digital sketch work-
Some of my traditional work-
The following images are some art from some of my favorite artist. I know they are professional, and/or have been doing art for many years, but it's an idea of what I wanna one day achieve.
Those are some examples of my art, and the art that inspire me. I hope it can give whoever is interested in being my mentor an idea of what I want to be in my art. I just hope someone can even read this and give me even a little advice. Thank you too for those who toke the time to read all this and view the images.
Anyway one last thing is the stuff I use for my art. I don't have anything big except Photoshop, but I don't use it much for painting.
