Hi Elisa, welcome to the forums :).

4 years is a pretty significant amount of time. I hear ya though, I have that problem myself, even worse is that I tend to work mostly in my comfort zone(what little bit I have of one anyway).

At any rate, I look forward to seeing you "work very hard" :D.

Hi elisa and welcome to the forum as well!
So the first thing i notice is that you already feel confortable to draw in tablet and most importantly paint. i would still owrk on proportion and relationships between the objects in your pictures, like the first one where kind of define that there is a part outise a city in a mechanical world but some details like the ones from the lights in the top or the buildings in the back arent so defined as your other figures like the horses. I would work more in understanding the shepes from the enviroment that its arround these horses and try to define it more, try to catch everything on the same perspective. Also its difficult for me at least to see if there are any textures because its a bit small the image but i would also add some but as i mensioned before, i think you should try to first let us understand the forms that are there. Try to use reference for lamps and the city, normally artist use pictures of buildings and paint over them. With my little knolagge thats all i can say about the first one at least. I also read that you would like to draw for magic the gathering and that requiers a lot of studys not only for shapes and form but specially from anatomy and theory of colors, so i would start doing first the foundamentals to really understand the forms and lighting and when you are really confident about your bases you can move forward to anatomy. (thats my personal thought, i also began studing not long ago so im also be wrong).
Anyways hope something i said could be useful to you, happy drawings and hope to see more of your works!

Hi foOtman : thanks I've been working on my fundamentals since these works
and yes I have to use reference more I'm used to just draw from imagination and thats not so good if you don't actually know it.

went to the zoo
I have lots of work for school so I didn't post for a while I'm try to make a comic with 3D programs (daz 3D and google sketchup),photomanipulation and painting and it's really hard and time-consuming because I didn't know the 3D program and only used photo's a few times I have to make four pages and I have until thursday so it's a bit stressy my first page is still not done after days working at it but i'm getting faster :S

Some of your works remind me of my history books in 6th grade.
A lot of illustrations in there where drawn exactly like you do with the crosshatching :)
Great work!

I really don't understand whats happening in the last picture though.
Did you do the 3D modelling?

-studies of etches by rembrandt
- bit hard to explain I din't model the figures you get a basic figure with the program and I adjusted the proportions, poses and lightning.
the room is made in google sketchup with textures in that program and pre-modeled items from the warehouse
clothing boots 3d skirt photoshirt : photo jacket pait plus textures hair paited over 3d hair
rest of baackground photo manipulation

Nishrek wrote:Cool pictures. But IMO scans should be a bit bigger.

I made an action to shrink them because the site has a max size and I thought they would look too big

thank you both :)

my exams myself were good but my illustration teachers failed me
they say my art is too much like all fantasy art and i should be more experimental and i should make more naive art and that kind of things -_- the landscapes are more an experiment for figuring out composition they are used for the matte painting here
not shown: i'm learning the basics of blender (again) and zbrush nothing worth showing now

one of my teachers said I have no talent and if I've worked so hard for so long I should have been better then I am...
She said It would be better to think of doing something completely different then art

well that surely was motivating .... :(

    Zit jij in een kunstschool? De welke dan? Ik probeer een gepaste kunstschool te vinden in België maar er is blijkbaar niet al te veel keuze :V
    Superleuke schetsen btw, echt wel. Ik vind vooral je karikaturen heel wijs.
