So, I'm a newer guy on these forums, and decided to start a sketchbook of my own.
I'll be posting my art as I finish it, or am done working on it, whichever happens first. I'll also be posting my thoughts and curiosities as they relate to my art.
I love hearing people's opinion on my work, and love even more when people can give me ideas and advice on how to improve my work. So, feel free to say what you think of the work as I post it.
I'm probably more modest than I should be, which can bite oneself in the butt. However, I still enjoy my art, and am starting to find it easier to take what's in here (taps on head) and put it into a visual format.
and without further ado, the first item I'm going to throw into this sketchbook:
This was a speed-painting I decided to do up, he's a recreation of a dragon I drew up in my paper sketchbook (just lines in that one). I spent a just over two and a half hours on it, still unsure if that's fast or slow when looking at it... I know one thing, he feels quite flat.
One thing I need to learn is how to add much more depth without losing detail. I think i'm half afraid if I use too dark and too bright that I'll lose detail, and people won't be able to know what I'm trying to portray.
anyways, I look forward to what people have to say, and hope my skills will be bettered because of it.
until next time
