I was thinking of writing some quotes or thoughts that cross my mind every day, while drawing or do my daily life.
This idea of opening a portfolio and my mind to all who visit this page, born of the artistic journey of Jonathan Hardesty http://http://220.127.116.11/foo.html?t=870.
His site motivates many young artists, including myself. I want others to also feel that "push" they were seeking.
Although I am very young to talk about experiences or anecdotes, you can always salvage something of what a person can say.
I hope I can support, advise and criticize in order to grow as a person and artist.
*I know my English is not good enough, I'm out of practice. As I wrote in another post, I hope for your understanding and I apologize if you see very many mistakes.
Yeah man get studying and creating! This is the place to be!
From this selection of work the best is the fan art copy, but I would advise you to not copy other people's fanart for study. The problem isn't plagerism since it's a study, but the fan art you chose to study isn't the greatest so you will probably form bad habits from it. If you want to study artwork make sure it's really good and have an intention, like what skill do you want to gain from studying it? Composition? Process? Color theory? I suggest studying the masters like John Singer Sargent and for environments, David Roberts, John Berkey, Jean-Leon Gerome, Joseph William Turne, Ralph McQUARRIE and Syd Mead will benefit you.
Otherwise it's better to look at real skies if you want to paint clouds. Same with everything.
Don't worry about oil paint now. It's okay to be inspired by something and never do it yourself and once you learn painting principles it's easy to do it in every medium. But personally I found gouache the best medium to learn painting techniques..
It feels like you have something started at least so keep it up! The ink drawing is interesting.
my oh my! your linework is amazing and the color is getting there, but those arm studies are jewels man. thanks for the comment in my sketchbook you are very talented man viva el arte latinoamericano y mundial! jeje
