Hello chaps and gents.
I'm through one year of college, and am taking this next year off. Since I've got all this time on my hands, I figure it'd be pretty cool to develop some arty chops, and would love miscellaneous guidance from our friend the Internet. (Also this seems a nice a place to dump new drawings and whatnot.)
Here's some stuff I've made!
Photos are from my cell phone!
That totally sucks!
Tablet drawings in photoshop:
Took a very long time, quite referenced:
Took even longer, not referenced.
I wish I had a reference for this.

From Michael Jordan on the history channel.

Questions! I'd love advice about how to render imagined things more fully— I always get to a certain point and the drawing still looks flat and bland but I have no idea what to change in it. Maybe that's just about a better sense of contrast&detail gained from much life drawing? Also, I often see people telling the crafters of dull landscapes that they need to study composition, but as a dull landscape artisan
, I'm not really sure what that means beyond a vague association with the Fibonacci spiral. How to study composition? Lastly, is there any sort of work missing that you folks think might help determine what I should work on? Given that my goal here is general improvement of artiness, I'd gladly try to produce it for your perusal.
(hello ladies, too.)
