OK I like drawing and enjoy doing it in my spare time. I can do painting, clay modelling but I really enjoy sketching in biro! I have posted some of my pcitures on my blog.

Just wondering what you guys think and whether I'm good enough to maybe take it further and possibly where that further may be?

Seriously, any feedback and advice from you guys will be very appreciated. Thanks.

Better than anything I could ever draw.

Your very good, exceptional at shading techniques, your ideas could be a bit more unique, trying somethings more futuristic, and something that doesn't look like it's from LOTR?
#4 Posted by DAZZER7 (2419 posts) -
Yeah, I do tend to concentrate on that sort of stuff. I'll see what I can do. But thanks guys.

Great job, I like most of your drawings.

I like your environments better than your characters. something is awkward about them.

I say, stick with backgrounds/architecture and then do concept art for game developers :D

Very good. I liked your building the best. You use shading well.

My favourite was More Art, the one with the town on the water. Well done with the reflection in the water. Heaps better than I could ever do. I'll stick to designing guitars.

Very nice! I'm no artist, but from this viewer's perspective I'd say that your attention to detail is especially well done, such as the reflections and brickwork in More Art, the creepy boils on the demon in Artwork 4, the eye wrinkles in ArtWork 3, and the hair in just about all of your characters.

My favorite is probably Artwork 6 and MoreArt. There's just something about the guy in 6 that makes me smile. He has a lot of character. And the town is just pretty :)

If I were to offer any constructive criticism I could only name two things. 1) With a few notable exceptions many of your characters have that "There's something off with this image" impression for me. Not being able to draw much more than a stick figure myself I imagine it's pretty damn challenging to draw a human (or humanoid) figure with proper proportions and dimensions. I have no advice to offer but I hope it helps just to point it out. And 2) Many of your images seem to be skewed to the right, with the two most notable examples being the tower and the town.

Congrats though. You're one of the best artists I've seen share their work in OT. Keep up the great work!

You're drawings are good, the characters look weird but in a good way. The tower and other land views were the best. 10/10 =D

Getting proportions right is what I have trouble with the most. What I dont do and which a lot of artists do is use model or photograph to get their proportions right. In all of these pics, I have just put pen/pencil to paper and started drawing. I don't really plan very well and I could take more time.

It's definitely an area in which I could improve and all of your comments are very valuable so thanks guys.

Draw a flaming wizard with a massive amount of swirling water circling him, and hail raining from the sky as he shoots lightning into the air and he glows.

It would be interesting and very impressive if you could pull that off.:)

The shading is great man gj.
#21 Posted by Bass7 (6614 posts) -
It's not my styIe of drawing :P, it looks too like lord of the rings-y, but the shading is amazing :).
#22 Posted by DAZZER7 (2419 posts) -

Thats cool, I'm going to try some landscapes, more sci-fi and to better present the proportions in my pictures which judging from the feedback is my biggest weakness.

I think I need to take time to better compose my pictures.

Took the words out of my mouth... Or the letters out of my fingers... Or something.

I came here prepared to flame someone, but for a change the person asking for critique is actually good.
I like it!
Easily a 9/10

They're drawn ok, shaded great, and they're extremelly boring, generic, and lame looking. 6/10.

Great job! I think you have great concept drawings...you draw really good. And I think you should give it a try and take things further. You have more potential to grow your drawing skills....man I love that building art next to the dragon.

Goodluck-hope you take this special talent of yours and make something of it. Don't waste it! Not a lot of people can do this. And heck--if you enjoy it....and its a passion, I think you've answered your own question!

#37 Posted by Meh___Guy (2568 posts) -
Your drawings are cool... You have style, can someone post the lord of the rings style? Because I think his is different.
#38 Posted by KittenNipples (3007 posts) -
You should be a concept artist...
#39 Posted by DAZZER7 (2419 posts) -

They're lame because they're boring and generic.

They might not be the most original but they are well done.

That's probably because well I don't know, this thread is 5 years old. And it always has to be the new people that do this.
