Hello everyone. I skipped that introduction part of the forum, mostly because I'm not the must-have-lots-of-posts kind of guy and partially because I'm not that good when it comes to talking about myself. Not much to say, there's some stuff about me on my profile.
Anyways, I've been lurking on these forum for a while now and I must say, you really seem like a cool bunch. I was tempted to make a thread, ask for critique (which I'm obviously doing right now) but I thought that my drawings were not worth it yet. Mainly because I'm doing just sketches for now. Today I've decided to make a thread and present some stuff from my sketch book (newer pieces, older ones are on my dA profile) in hopes of getting some constructive critique and advices.
And for the end, here's my first (and so far, last attempt) at adding value to a sketch.
I really prefer when someone who knows about this stuff more than me, points out my mistakes and gives a good advice over getting a comment such as: "wow that's perfect", while I myself feel that something is wrong with the drawing and can't figure out what. Make's me uncomfortable.
Being unemployed and low on resources (in form of money) I decided to educate myself. I always loved art and drawing but it's only up until recently (about 5 months ago) that I took it more seriously. Lately, I've been trying to figure out how the "colors work" and all that, but I think the best idea would be to put that aside for some time and focus on perspective, proportions, composition and such.
All of these are my personal concepts/designs.
Aside from this stuff, I've been also doing a lot of raw basics including: simple shapes in 1,2 and 3 point perspective, curved lines and surfaces and such. I started with pencil and paper (I still do basics on paper) and later gave Battlefield 3 for Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch. My friend saw no further use for it since he switched to "street art" but wanted to play that game so he was willing to trade.
