Bag's sketchbook
#1
Hi guys, Im called Bag and im struggling hard to get better at this. My professional goal is to work as an freelance illustrator, though my main goal is just being able to draw and paint what ever i want, i just love doing it.. but a man's gotta eat sooo..

Critique is very appreciated. At the moment im particularily trying to focus on my gestures, composition, character design and rendering. Any critiques, tips, help in those specific areas are much welcomed.


I'll start of with a dump of semi old stuff "finished recently" and some pretty new.

Cool stuff, I think you could help the mood of your paintings by using shadow and light more in some of your pieces, keep working hard and posting your progress :).

Im basically trying to learn about subjects that will be featured extensively in some future paintings of mine. Will probably post thumbnails on them soon :)

So here's some studies on knights, lizards and skeletons. And some quick dragons thrown in the mix.

Your line is beautiful, and your personal work is already really good. I think that your paintings could use more brave colors, as well as more careful value distribution so you can push your points of interest. You have the talent,man, keep it up :)
