So i Have been a lurker here for a long time, but i have recently decided to brave the waters and be social.
I am at a crossroads in my life, I am a student at NMSU( new mexico state) , I am also an instructor for DACC (Dana Ana Community College) but I am first and foremost a husband and father of two. So basically what i am trying to say is that there is not a whole lot of "me time" right now.
I have been drawing my whole life, however i have had a rocky relationship with digital painting, It seems i love her more than she loves me. None the less i am still slaying that beast.
I am attempting to liberate myself from line. It has been a valuable tool, and a good friend but it is time to move outwards and master value and color theory. and it is in that hope that i am posting here, the talent pool is amazing to say the least and i will never improve i i don't put myself out there
This image is typical of my style up to this point. Lines and flat colors. little understanding of light or color theory.
I have been doing little exercises on my own when i can steal a few min, they are helping, but i feel that it is not enough.
So what i would like to get from this experience is a little perspective. I want to eradicate my preconceived notions about visual communication and take my art to the next level.
so please be honest I dont have a fragile ego and i will take and suggestions very seriously.
Thanks, More to Come
