Hello CA, my name is Lorin, im an 18 year old male living in South Africa. I have just become interested in art these last few months due to someone introducing me to all of you here on CA :)
anyways, heres my stuff, advice and crit would be appreciated :yayca:
i'll post as i create :)
2 random enviros, no idea how to use photoshop yet :P and an apple i did after reading bumskee's intro to ps art, these are my first 3 digital drawings ever :) will start posting hand drawn stuff as soon as i get my camera fixed.
I broke your SB virginity!! Keep at it man:D
pumpkin flower :P if anyone has a link to any good ps tutorials i would appreciate it greatly.
I'm number 34 ... We wanna see some more :D
Keep it up!
wow nice mate, thx for the site btw:p

If you're just starting out I can recommend the books by Andrew Loomis:
Very good for learning.

a pastel followed by an acrylic (920 mm by 610 mm). Then some random reffed sketches an studies. My aim at the moment is to learn anatomy, basic photoshop rendering and then take it from there.
Please crit and give any tips/ advice you think of :)
another quick reffed pastel
The landscapes are really cool.:)
I myself can't give u much criticism cause im a beginner too.:^^:
Nice looking pics! You have a great imagination indeed. You shouldnt use so much pure black on your paintings though. Use something between dark brown, blue or red or something instead, makes the whole piece look more "breathable"
Keep posting :)
I enjoy your traditional stuff a lot! Very alive.
Keep working with the digital stuff, you will get the hang of it.
WOW GREAT way to start a sketchbook
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=51913 this is a good tut. not exactly just for ps but it helps alot in all medias
can't wait to see some more!
Hey! thanks for stoping by, ummmm your studies with photoshop tand such are nice but they look a bit to light. Try painting from a reference. Like a plant inside your house and such and really look at all the darks and lights.
Your traditional looks good though, try blending the colours bit more in some of them.
Oh and there are tutorials on how to use PS on this site. Just look around a bit and you'll find them.
Evil comrad: thx :)
NoodleDoodle: thanks for the tip, will do :)
Blythe: thanks for stopping by :)
Grandmassa Mr. Spect: ty for the link, will check it out right now :)
My57: thankyou, will do :)
Feel a bit bad for not posting in a while, found myself in a creative doldrum. Back at it now, so more is on the way. :yayca:
