Recently I decided to make a living on art. I still have a lot to learn, but I think I might have something interesting to share with everyone.

love the perspective 👍

That's awesome! You have a really good awareness of perspective and that's a really cool design. Shape design for the fenders could be a little more defined and well realized. Good stuff

Thanks! That's a good point! I'll work better on that on my next one.

In this one I used Koh-I-Noor color pencils and Staedtler pigment liners. All feedback on what I can/need to improve and suggestions are welcome! The colors on the photograph I took are a bit washed up, that's the best I could get with my phone camera.

Hey @Jo Edgehill , nice drawing, the gesture is really good! One thing I think might help is to define a little bit better the shadows. You could add some contrast to it and also use it to better show the forms of the body and the clothing of your character.

Hi everyone! I created this weird version of spongebob square pants. I show the painting process on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/uWBk-Pk9Isc Your feedback and advices are more than welcome!

Hey @Alessandro Dalponte ! I like the prior feedback about lighting and color variation- but I wanted to apply that on top of different silhouettes. There's nothing wrong with your initial design other than that the concept hasn't been fully explored yet! I did a paintover to try to push and pull the proportions and I made the material a more definitive canyon rock. (There was a conflict for me between the overgrowth/vines and the seemingly dry environment). I changed the colors, but my main focus was to simply to create a variety of designs- which is primarily based in shapes and silhouettes. You could try to think of the design as a flat graphic shape- especially with rocks as the subject matter you have more freedom to modify the silhouette. Anyway, rock portals are always a fun concept- thanks for sharing!

Hey @Josh Sunga! Thanks for the feedback, it is really helpful. Seeing your desings made me realize how monotonous mine is. I think I was too worried about making everything "right", then I ended up creating something not dynamic at all. Color still is something kinda new to me, I have to explore a lot more. In my next paintings I sure will use your advices and explore a variety of designs using different shapes. Again, thank you very much!

Hey Alessandro, This is a cool character design, nice job. The biggest issue is that all your colors are independent of each other. There is going to be orange reflected in the skin where they are close. The opposite is also true. To lighten a color like green, don't just add white, it makes the color look dead and chalky. You should always add some yellow with it to keep the color alive. That goes for all your colors, you have to color shift when darkening and lightening them. You also need to build more contrast by darkening your shadows and not have them be all the same value. I did a quick paint over to show you what I mean. I hope this helps :)

Hey Steve! Thanks for the feedback! I'll use your corrections as a guide to improve and change my paintings. The painting sure looks a lot more vivid and has more depth this way!

I decided to create this weird concept of Yoda. I searched for some images of Yoda on google, then I made a list containing his main characteristics, after that I deleted Yoda's images, and finally I painted this weird version of him based on the characteristics I wrote. I uploaded a video on Youtube showing and better explaining the whole process. Any doubts about this concept or comments and feedbacks are welcome!

Nice concept, interesting shape and I like the vines. I'd say the comments below apply to the grass too, it's quite uniform in colour and style, so add some variation. Maybe try with the lighting coming from a different direction to see how that affects the composition?

Thanks for the advice! I need to put more variation on the base values before applying the gradient maps. I think that might help with the whole color variation problem that I'm having. More dramatic lighting is a nice idea too, I'll try to apply that on the next one!

What Peter said, plus, you could vary the colors in the rocks. You could change up the colors and the temperature to make it look more like an organic structure.

Yeah, that too. I need to put more feel to the textures and color variation. They ended up being "too smooth". Thanks!

I think it looks cool and has a good feel to it. Main thing is it doesn't feel like a portal since there's no magical energy in the center, unless you meant it to just be a stone arch, if that's what you meant by portal. I also think you could vary up the size of the rocks more (tiny, medium, huge). They could also use more weathering. I think it also might be too symmetrical in its structure.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mencion, it's the arch of a portal (not activated). Thanks for the tips! The stones are quite similar, I need to make something more varied for sure!

I just finished this concept art of a stone portal. I painted this using Krita and will soon post a video on youtube talking about the whole process. Please tell me what you think! I still need to work better on my occlusion shadows and other things.

Hi David! Very cool drawing. The theme and elements you put there are great! I'm also a Kim fan! I think you should be a little bit more careful with perspective and the horizon line. The sheriff at the center looks gigantic compared to the other guys. If you put a horizontal line right at the feet of the sheriff's pig, you'll see that he's behind the left pig guy and the other guy on the right, and that's what makes the sheriff seems gigantic. So I took your drawing and made a quick adjustment just to give you an idea of what I mean. I removed the background and changed the positions of your characters a little bit. The first image is the same one you have there, but without the background, and the second image has the characters in different placements with a red line that represents the horizon line. The adjustments I made are far from perfect, but I hope this might help you understand. Keep up the good work!

Hey David! Don't worry too much about it, the perception of things will come to you with practice and study. And as Dominik said, if your idea was to create a character that's bigger than the others, that's a good way to approach that. =)

Recently I started to create a story based on this "superhero" I created a while back. The story will be as serious as the looks of this guy. Difficult to decide the sneakers model hehehe.

Hey Tony! Really nice work for a newborn in drawing! Congratulations! So, one of the most important and basic things about drawing is the study of shapes and forms. Basically, any complex subject can be drawn if you distort and combine the most basic and fundamental shapes and forms. Understanding this concept will also help you improve your shading skills. My advice would be, study the basic shapes and forms. I almost forgot, in english, the word "shape" refers to the 2D space (Circle, Triangle, Square, etc) and the word "form" refers to the 3D space (Cube, Cylinder, Sphere, etc). Sometimes that might be a little confusing, because in some latin languages it would be said something like "2D form and 3D form". And also, the study of form (3D), goes together with the study of perspective. A good perspective is what makes a form seems realistic and well drawn. Keep it up man!
