I'm finally making a sketchbook here because I'm hoping it motivates me to draw & paint more as I have a strong desire inside to become a better artist! Becoming an illustrator is at the top of my list, but I also want to try concept art, and I enjoy 3D modeling too.
All honest critiques are welcome! I want to improve so don't hold back
Here are some NPC portraits that I've done for the game Eternal Lands...they get resized very small (50x50px) so I dont' have to be too concerned about details and getting them just right-that said I am using them as portrait practice and to get better at drawing and painting on the computer! I like to try out a lot of different styles/brushes in Photoshop/Painter and see what works best for me.
The first one is of a draegoni(a humanoid race with some "dragon blood" in them), And the other one is a gnome.
