Hello, name's Various, I'm a Digital Arts & Entertainment student (DAE). Any colleagues out there: I salute you.
The situation is this: our teachers at school are all about giving and getting feedback and using that intel to our advantage to progress and that's why I'm here.
What are my skillz then? I'm not the greatest of artists (yet ), but I'm no total rookie either. I can hold my own when it come to anatomy and facial anatomy, though it's mostly limited to lineart. I'm not to horrible at shading and painting (digitally), it's nothing special, but I'm getting there. I'm used to Photoshop and other Adobe software and I have some skill at using a tablet without too much trouble. I prefer the traditional arts though (using a refillable pencil to keep my medium clean), but I totally see the advantages of coloring digitally.
I will drop my stuff here in batches, so as to tie them together a bit. The goal is to eventually update this thread weekly, maybe daily if this works out. I hope it does.
Lastly this: I can take a pounding when it comes to feedback, it both motivates me and puts my feet back on the ground but it should be constructive criticism only. I will also take any advice form my teachers over obscure forum posts, as you'll understand
And there you have it
The First batch is really quite horrible, It's mainly old stuff, up to 2,5 years old. I's what I've been doing before things got real. As you can see I was struggling with some aspects of anatomy and shading and a whole other bunch a madness, but in the spirit of a friendly community,I wanted to get them out of the way before getting to the serious stuff: Work for school and recent sketches, lineart and stuff.
An Interesting thing to note is that many images are originally intended for a Skyrim total conversion mod called "MERP", which was based on Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. It's the sort of mod team with great ambitions that will never get anywhere; and even though it was my motivation to get drawing for a good while, I never had the feeling I was taken seriously as a 'concept artist'.
