Is it okay if I can borrow your manticore? I'm trying to sketch out Arkhan's Manticore and yours is how I imagined him. But I'll add your name. Also don't let this freak you out but if I ever come across as hateful or envious of you, I am so very, very sorry. I'm not asking for you to follow me on twitter I just want to be friends with the people I admire even if my style is just pencil. I wanted to get that off my chest because way too much negativity to contain. Hope you're okay.

Hey :)

I just wanted to say that your paintings are really awesome. I especially like the way compose whole scenes. I was wondering if you could tell me how you got so good? Things like where you've studied or how you've studied? Or other general thing on how you do your art.

I'm asking because I'm trying to get better at art. One advice given to the beginner artists is to ask advice from people whose work they admire. And that's why I came to ask you.

Hi, sorry for the delayed response!

Thank you so much, it makes me so happy to hear you like my art. :) I've mostly learned through selfstudy sources like Schoolism, but I've also taken a few mentorships through Oatley Academy. The rest is just doing studies and trying to identify and work on my weak areas. For example, someone pointed out that my poses were a bit stiff, which I agreed with, so I've been trying to work on that by doing regular gesture drawings for the past few months.

You have very lovely colours in your art, and I can see some really steady improvement when browsing your gallery. If I were to give you any pointers, it'd be to try and pay attention to how you describe forms in your paintings (as in, shading, highlights, etc). Your two recent portraits are a lot clearer with how the light falls than some of your full figure paintings from August-November. So I think you're already on the right track with that. :) Saw on the Faelyn artwork that you'd tried to not paint every strand of hair, which is the right idea to have! Painting is a lot about learning where to imply details, rather than actually painting them (Check out old master painters like Sargent, Bouguereau or Winterhalter). Honestly all I can really suggest is to keep at it, use references when you're not sure of how something looks (paint what you see, not what you think you know), and do studies to improve in areas you feel you are weaker. Art is one long process of "Try, fail, try again, fail better". You learn something with every new painting, if you actually strive for it. I don't know if you follow me on either of my tumblr pages, but I do post study summaries there every now and then, if you want some inspiration: daranthaart.tumblr.com/tagged/…

Hope you find something of it helpful! I get a little rambly at times. :)

Thank you for the lengthy response!

I'll make sure to check out Schoolism and Oatley Academy. I honestly didn't think you'd look at my gallery but thank you for browsing trough it. I've been trying to pay more attention to my form painting since it's something I had very little previous experience on. I've planned on doing master studies and I'll check out the painters you mentioned. I'll try to keep on improving my art and painting skill in general.

And thank you once more for taking you time to answer my questions.
