Since all I see is irl sketches o.o mostly and I love 'em.
I'm 15 and I'm hoping to attend a good art school im america o.o somewhere in phili or close to it since that's we're my aunt lives,and No I do not live in america I live in jamaica.

sorry for being inactive o: I got my scanner to work so expect a update every day
yeah...>_>; found out that sai had a texture option lulzabuse?
D: gonna start doing BG practice now.
<.<; I need a tut for sai lol.
weapon Designs! please criti and comment.
man still no comment ;_; no love. xD
Criti's are welcomed O: Doing some nose and mouth study, and muscle. yeah some of it got cut out when scanning, I found this to be hard since all I've drawn is anime and dots for nose, I used ref's for the nose and mouth drawings, and the skull(muscle too) Once again O: comment please.
quick speed painting that I just did never tired painting animals before, and wanted the practice.
Program Paintool sai advice and comments are welcomed.
speed paint. Criti's are welcomed.
your studies are nice and a pretty good sense of colour
what i would suggest is definitely use larger strokes, and yes, THEN go small; the trick is to see squares, circles, etc. of colours and to block those out first~
and don't use the colour picker in case that you are..it could get really tempting (being so much faster when you want to speed things up) but trust me, it's a whole lot better to not pick;
plus you'll feel better when you're done with it
and post more!
the landscape and animal paintings are cool, but you may want to try starting with value instead of jumping straight into color. Try taking your polar bear reference image and removing the color and then doing a new painting of it in just black and white, concentrating on just getting your values correct and not having to worry about color at all. good luck ;3
Wow o: people care lol.
Abrodos : thanks a lot, like your stuff too.
BlackDelphin: thanks, I'll remember the blocking out thing, and yeah I don't normally use Picker but I thought I had to D: since its color study. I like using my own colors xD
StarBelly: I think I get what you mean O: I will most certainly try it, seems hard tho.
And here's an old notebook sketch. Haven't been able to sketch anything all day, and I'm leaving for the airport in 2 hours >.< I'll have those speedpaints up soon.
Eh, Dragon Speed paint, no ref.
D: its not good but I'm getting there.
Depression has me down O: and life wont give me a break, but my good friends I'll keep on drawing. really haven't been able to do any studies due to school <_<; and certain problems. lol these are some old like 2days ago stuff but.. internet is here and there.
1st one is like O: under water fail shit. Lol, forgot to add fishes(really <_<; didn't have any net and couldn't get any fish ref so I
just didn't lol) 2nd one has a goblin head O:
EDIT- ADDED ANOTHER VERSION LOL, never tried doing a shark before D: or any fish it was hard. yay speed painting

i cant realy help you out cuz i need alot of help myself butt.. anyway try to keep the edges sharper on paintings like the one with the shark i gues.
and always try to get this finished feel
i mean thats my new rule . it just give you this feeling of acomplishment and it feels right
because i did alot of sketchy sketches before and than its just not art you know
yeahh.. whatever good luck
@GETBUCK, Yeah I'm a start giving everything 100% and stop telling my self >_>; it doesn't look good because its a -sketch- lol, thanks !
New shit, what?you want to see studies?screw that o: ahah, sketched and colored on Paintoolsai. lol I draw so crappy on the computer ;__;
Some sai sketch, I can't sketch on paper at home D: the paper feeels so damn wet.
D: don't like it.
Your work seems to be getting better, keep up those studies and maybe try some random poses on posemaniacs, it will help, keep working hard
@NoName, thanks will do.
More background study, used a ref for the Clouds one D: I feel like everything is too soft.
more BG practice, because I seriously <_<; suck at them
nice stuff so far! I like that you practice backgrounds and stuff.
I think you should work a little on you hues which would give you pics
more contrast. It really helps to sometimes save a black and white version of your painting while you do it. So you can see where you need more darkness/light.
Keep 'em coming!
Dragon wip for my 1st TEEN CHALLENGE.
Lol, really need some criti's on this one, the theme is "Angel of war" And this godly Dragon O: its the angel of war, source of all destruction. He breathes Blue Flamez like a boss.
@ Abrodos,Thanks I'll keep practicing.
more background stuff..tried using textures this time.
@ jatherip, yeah I'm thinking of adding like a dead animal then another one running or limping away. Not very good with animals so I'm a have to do some studies.
Ok just put down the simple BG sketch O:! tell me what you think guys.
no dragon update today
did a speed paint exactly 1hour lol, couldn't even finish the rocks one due to my time being up.
so rather than doing 1 speed paint in 1 hour I did 4 O:
