Hello everyone!

I have created a sketchbook here to chronicle my studies and new pieces as I complete them. To start off, I have just attached a few studies and sketches I have done in recent days. 

In the meantime, I look forward to getting to know you guys, and learning as much as possible. 

I have battled quite a bit of anxiety over sharing my work online over the years, so this is a teeny bit scary to me, to say the least. Here goes:

drawings from imagination:

Hey welcome
Yes I for one took a long while before showing my art to others but now I think a major part of growing is getting feedback and being consistent with your studies.... Anyway enough jibber jabber from me.....

Great stuff, nice style you got goin....keep em pumping out

Thank you for the kind words and the welcome! You're right - this is absolutely important if we want to see any real progress.

Here are some more studies. I'm off to do more now, specifically in order to support some of my sketches from imagination.:

Good to see you're studying hard! Maybe you could do a few skull studies to see how facial features sit in space? Other than that, great stuff!
Welcome to the forum Animatosoor and well done for posting your works :).

You have some good stuff going on here.

My advice is to keep going with the perspective stuff. Try to think in 3D as you are drawing - like the way drawabox.com teaches. Try to find shadow shapes whenever you can - that really helps. This stuff will then help when you move forward with whatever you want to specialise in, be it characters or enviros or machines.

Also try to find artists that you would like to emulate. Having a style you want to aim for will make your studies more efficient and you can target your studies towards that end. If you can state your aims in this thread, hopefully people will take that into account and give you more relevant feedback.

Anyway enough rambling from me, hope that helps just a little bit, good luck with your art journey, keep posting :).
