Hello artists! I'm David, 17yo photographer, musician and programmer from Croatia. Around the web I'm known as Fricetix.
Sorry for the wall of text below, it's a story how I got into the artistic life. You can skip it if you want.
This thread will be my road to become a decent concept artist in gaming/movie industry. (Environments and characters mostly)
I got introduced to art world way back when I was like 12 or something. I saw some sick fantasy paintings and I wanted to be able to make such stuff but my passion quickly died. I started to draw but I wasn't motivated enough so I practiced pretty rarely. Fast forward to 2011 (16yo), I got my first camera and fell in love with photography. Over the time I took photos every day and spent every second of my time getting books and studying the actual art of photography, like camera technical stuff, composition, light, etc. I can pretty much say I mastered photography (some ppl say it's impossible to master any art form, but I think it is and I'm pretty close) and if you want you can check out my current portfolio here:
This is also where I'll post my finished paintings/drawings when I get better.
Anyways, looking for some used film cameras, I found an ad for a Wacom Bamboo Fun Medium size tablet. I immediately called the dude and my tablet arrived few days after (a month ago). I got hooked! It was epic feeling to draw on it
So here I am learning from every possible source I can get my hands on
I got a few books on drawing and this guy helped me a ton with his epic videos: MoatDD on YT
Let's start with art!
And here is a peach on a chair lit by a single lamp:
Ignore the green background.
I'll usually draw/paint every day (both digital and with pencils) so I believe I'll update this thread every day but I'll do it at least every two days.
So, thanks for reading and enjoy your day.
