My First sketchbook
Drawing is a hobby for me and its awesome ... Trying to improve in the holidays
Just got myself a graphic tablet and trying to get the hang of it.
I m just a beginner so need ur crits and advice on how to improve and what to concentrate on.
and so my first sketch ...
I agree, the first piece is pretty cool, but it needs bumped up in detail and resolution. you could also work on place a more direct lighting source to really emphasize the creature in the background. looks good though, keep going!
Thanks guys ... m already feeling comfortable here
@tron : yeah did that first sketch in low res
@lepush & visoutre : i am still in the learning phase and practicing comp and perspective ... perspective in the first sketch is complex for me and m not sure about placement of rocks behind the golem and the pose for the foreground dude ... hard to find references for this kind of scene ... however will definitely work on it at a later time after learning a bit more ... my previous pieces were just doodles and blurry stuff so i did the following to learn to use hard lines without destroying the painting
still unclear, but it does appear to feel like a big overwhelming atmosphere, like those structures tower over everything else. My suggestion on this piece, would be to place your lighting source so that the eye has a path to follow. when i get home, i'll do a paint over example
Well I got a little funked seeing artist go from nothing to just outright awesome ... So thought maybe I'd try something and its still a bit rough but hey i did this in about an hour and a half which i think is kinda ok ... I am improving and hopefully should nail form definition and contours quickly.
