    Hey, welcome to the boards. Could you post a few images in this forum thread instead of just linking us to your DA gallery? It 's better for us to view a selection and easier to crit if it's all here on one page.

    Basically we're all too lazy to click links... ;)

    Just a couple of thoughts after looking through your gallery:

    Do you take time to sketch and learn and study and make mistakes? Part of becoming a good artist is taking time to not worry about making a great finished piece, but figuring out techniques, finding out what works and what doesn't. Then when you work on a piece you intend to display, your time spent practicing will be reflected in your final piece.

    Buy some inking pens. Sharpies are horrible for inking as they bleed and are hard to control. The Micron brand is pretty good. Check out an art store or a Michaels or even online to see what you like.

    Work on building up confident lines. Have you done any work building up geometric shapes for your drawings? They are coming across as very flat, and figuring out the basic shapes for things will allow you to draw confident lines, as well as drawing objects from different/challenging angles, something else that your work lacks.

    And then of course: draw from real life!

    Keep on practicing!

    Well if it makes you feel any better...

    As much as I like playing video games, they are not an excuse to delay your personal goals.

    I want to take "Idiotic art history" because it sounds like the class where you learn about the first guy to die after eating oil paints.

    Yeah, just posting a link to your site is a no-no around here. Please take the time to read the rules thread before posting again.

    The class is late nights for three hours sitting in a dark room in a basement while a monotone teacher reads off slides of old paintings. Although I can see why it is a required course for my major.

    Come now gentlemen. Art history is pretty boring when, like most history classes, the required reading is some dusty tome of information written by some anally retentive wanker in the least engaging manner possible.

    See the funny thing is I actually love history classes. I use to be a history minor. I recently changed my minor to Art History since I have to take the classes anyway for my major. So might as well kill two birds with one stone.

    I like history when it is presented in it's most idiot like form on television, especially when the history involves rockets and explosions. Classroom based history can go fuck itself.

    I remember looking around in one of my morning art history classes and being the only one in my row with his eyes open.

    Pay attention in art history, kids, or else you'll get a D in that class like someone who isn't me did.

    To be fair it was at 9 in the morning, and that person who totally wasn't me had a 2 hour commute.

    I almost got a D in Art History but I pulled a Superman which means I actually opened a book and got a C+. I have to take the second part of the class this semester thankfully the guy that emails everyone the lecture notes is in my class again so I think I will be fine.
