I am currently working professionally as an artist doing any art jobs i can freelance fantasy portraiture, illustration etc.. I try to draw every day from life and or photos and work on a painting every day. Sketch pad goes where i go etc..
I am self taught mostly but feel My workflow could be more organized. I have been busy this year trying to get my work from fine art to more illustration and build an illustration portfolio so i can get better paying illustration work.
I Try to do the best i can and am always pushing my self to get better.
I'd love it if some one could take the time offer me advice or on going critiques via email in there spare time or throw projects my way to help me push my work further..
I am still not exactly sure what i need to do to push my work in a more pro direction..There are so many things to work and improve on and I never know exactly what to focus on.. I feel a bit spread out at times.
This year i have been working on backgrounds and environments because i have mostly been doing figure stuff before. I have also been continuing my work on anatomy and rendering..
I feel my weakest points are still, perspective, and composition. Also Lacking in speed and turn around time..Most paintings still take me a month to complete and i'd like to get that down to 2 weeks so i can take on more projects but not sure how to get faster??
Advice in digital painting techniqes would also be helpful.. i have been painting digitally on and off a couple years now but i am all self taught feel my digital work lacks something.
Anyway, I am open to any helpful advice you can give !
Thanks so much and keep painting! ~CAROL
