Hello everyone, my name is Shen. It's been a long time since I've last visited here. Due to complications, I'll be starting a new account.

A few months into the pandemic, I've started to settle down and prepare for my next move: finding a new job at the end of this year to middle of next year in the creative industry. That means slowly sorting my life out in terms of physical and mental well-being, integrity of character, and of course, skills to break into the art industry!

Something that changed since the pandemic started is that my old feedback loop, which was mostly in-person, is now gone, so I'll be reaching out to gather feedback online. This place being one of them.

Hope everyone has a good day!

hi⭐
I'm steve. Nice to meet you! I've been doodling since I was a kid, but only got serious about drawing a few years ago. I'm not great at art right now, but I'm working hard and improving. I'm excited to make a sketchbook, and get and give critique.

Hi everyone!

My name is Devin, but I pen my art under PixelSmut.

When I was younger, Highschool to early 20's, I wanted to be an artist, but ended up taking the path of a career Chef. 
As much as I love art, the industry was extremely saturated compared, and I felt job security in Food.  I worked my ass off and reached the new heights as an Executive Chef.  
But everything changed when the fire nation attacked. 
So roll 2020. With job loss and not many secure prospects for a Chef these days, I'm taking it as a second lease on life and trying to bury myself back into the world of art that I love and carve some path that way.
Silver linings and all that. 

I used to frequent Deviantart & had a Sketchbook I updated regularly on Conceptart.org, but have been far removed from the community and art in general for awhile now. 

I've begun working on sketching and doing studies daily, and just this morning jumped back into digital art. 

A few things about me I guess. I used to draw anime smut for commissions back in the day. (Hence name PixelSmut) 
But after reading and studying Bridgman had started to make a painful turn around before I moved on to cooking. 

As far as taste I have an affinity for Dark art, Fantasy, horror, and am particularly drawn to oil painting and water Color. 
My inspirations and Favorites are Brom, Bisley, Azpiri, Manara, Royo, Shigenori Soejima, Yamamoto Takato, and Ignacio Noé.   ( I grew up heavily on Heavy Metal Magazine)

That aside I've got strong "color Blindness' Deutan. But really I just have a mutation in my eyes that effects my pupil dilation, which, in return, effects the amount of light my eyes absorb and washes out certain colors. Best example, when Im driving at night, headlights and streetlight take up about 60-80% of my field of vision. So you may notice my colors can be off a bit sometimes. I seem to have a lot of issues with skin tones, probably due to them washing together for me. Unfortunately color blind modes & glasses dont work for me, and there isn't any kind of correction for my problem. 

Sorry for the length. I am excited to  be here!

Hey everyone! 

My name is Mac and Im out of NY. Im still a fairly new digital artist, but I've drawn since I was a kid on and off. Over the last two years I've really become more serious about art, and have focused heavily on learning fundamentals as well as various digital art techniques. Also Id love to make some artist friends as well! Thanks for having me!

I'm a soon to be college student enrolled in an Art And Design course looking for constructive criticism. I hope to develop my skills efficiently and give back to this community once I am knowledgable enough.

Hey there. My name is Lee. I'm from Germany and I'm drawing since I can think. But years don't really tell how good of an artist you are, haha. That's why I wanna become better. I have many artists I look up to, like Dave who created this wonderful place, Rokuro Saito, one of my favorite mangakas and many more. I hope this site will help me to become better and maybe I will find new people to talk with!

I hope we will meet again.

Hey folks,
I guess I probably should have done this first before putting up my sketchbook thread yesterday, whoops.
Anyway, my name is Jackson, I'm from California, and quarantine has been rough. I hope everyone is safe and doing well.

I've been pursuing art seriously for about five years now. I don't think I'm the worst, but I do feel like for the amount of time and effort I've put into it, I should be a lot better than I am by now. I think I came here because I'm ready to stop being afraid of getting feedback from others, I just want to get better. I had a mindset for a while that if I just worked really hard for a really long time then I would improve, which isn't completely wrong, but I think I the aspect of that that I conveniently forgot to add to the equation was that I should probably seek advice from outside sources, which I did not do. For a long time, I wanted to be the one to figure out all of my problems for myself; something about that idea made it feel more like a personal triumph. At this point, I've realized what a dumb idea that was, and it is one that I regret having for so long. Now I am really just looking for more of a sense of community when it comes to art, and I've always heard good things about this site. To beat a point to death, I really just want to improve, so any feedback anyone has for me is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jackson Gray

hello everyone hope you guys are all well,

I have been searching for a site similar to concept art.org and came across this little gem!

Examples of my work in no particular order if you're interested. here

i'm an illustrator (or aspiring? not sure) who has been around the block so to speak and have been all over the place and ultra demotivated when it comes to making art i'm looking to truly get back into the swing of things.

i learnt the basics of how to draw and approach art in college and i picked up graphic design and did that as a job full time pre covid to enhance the design side of my illustrations and that has helped me a bunch but still a long ways to go though. I love colours, cartoons and line drawings/work so that have influenced my approach to art a ton.

i love story driven fantasy based art and want do a lot of that in the future, i am also looking to improve my technical skills, like studying values cuz i suck at that (i really struggle to paint in monotone) and i double suck at hairs. so i am looking to improve that too. i feel like i could push the story telling elements in my art tenfold if i can improve  my landscapes 

i know these things don't happen overnight and takes a lot of time and is a tall order but my body and brain is ready !

thank you ^.also where to start?
