Jim Lee. I love his art and in watching his Twitch streams he has a great sense of humor and I think we would have a lot of fun working together.

I'd like to draw some comic books. I've also done some character concept art for a miniatures games company and that was a lot more interesting than I thought it might be so I would like to do more of that. I'm also working on my painting a bit so I can do more in terms of illustration. I think I'm trying to cast a wide net, but I'm interested in all of it, so I figure why not.

Bummed I didn’t get to finish this in time due to a back injury. I like it though so I thought I’d share the unfinished version here anyway.

I really like the gesture and the "vibe" here, I think it has a nice sense of drama. Two things that jump out at me though are the head and mouth "cowl" seem pretty big for ole Swampy. I think making that a bit smaller might help the general profile. The other thing is that while I do like your use of darks, I think this really needs some highlights to make it really pop. Maybe create a new layer and experiment with some highlights so you can preserve the vibe, but give it more depth.

I really love the expression in the characters, especially the dog's face, which is just perfect. you really capture a ton of emotion in this scene! I do think the shoe/barefood piece just doesn't read well enough though. In fact, I didn't even realize that was what was going on until I read the comments and looked at it again. I think the chewed shoe needs to have a more "shoeish" look. The missing shoe on the man is cool but I think making it really clear that the man is holding a chewed up shoe would really help the impact of the storytelling. The only other thing I would consider is expanding the value range of the color a bit. Really fun drawing!

Hello, I'm trying my hand at the bean this time before revisiting gesture. Any tips are always welcome.

Asked for help
Greetings, Proko community! My name's Joseph and I'm a 3D Character artist, without a foundation. I've joined Proko because I want to be entirely an artist. I want to learn art fundamentals and how to draw in 2D. Basically want to learn what an art school teaches its students. The reason I want to learn is that I want to be a professional 3D Character Game Artist. I've realized without foundation... I'll suffer a lot! I want to purchase a course, but I don't know which one is suitable for me (according to my case). I'm devoted to spending 3h+ a day on learning. Please help! Thank you!

Honestly I would suggest Figure Drawing Fundamentals to anyone looking to improve their figure drawing. It is an amazing course! I would pair it with some perspective study as well. I'm not really sure where you are as an artist, but I feel like pretty much anyone would benefit from the Fundamentals class.

I've started to learn color a bit in procreate so I thought I'd post this Wolverine I did yesterday. Pencil was done a few weeks back, but it was fun to take a stab at digital inks/colors.

I did this today as a show of support for the staff in the middle school is sometimes sub in (Their mascot is the Gator). Figured I'd post it here too.

Here's my first go at the complementary color practice. Not sure I'm happy with it yet and input definitely welcomed.

Tried to email but I got an "address not found" error message from gmail. What I'm getting is a pop up box that says "You didn't save your changes.....Do you really want to leave". If I click either "stay" or "leave" the popup stays up and the only way past is to "X" out. Hope that helps. Also I'm on a Mac using Safari, if that's relevant.

When I create a new topic I keep getting a "Save Changes" instead of it just creating the topic. That can sometimes lead to duplicate posts.

Drawing of Wolverine I did yesterday. Figured I'd share it.

A bit of practice in Procreate. One is inks over a penciled page and the other is some concept art practice trying to find a visual languageI like. Definitely need to get used to Procreate a bit ore, I'm not super happy with my line quality yet.
