I think the overall idea is good. I am not sure that the energy coming out of the eyes is needed, but it does make it feel like there i...

At this point, most of the work I do is to get better and get ideas out of my head and onto paper. I am hoping to break into concept art or illustration work as I get better and improve. Mostly I deal with pencils and inks but am working toward digital painting.

I love art and love to see up and coming artists. In the past I have learned a great deal from artists of all calibers and I think they all have something they can teach. Speaking of which, this is prolly going to sound callous and might even make a few visitors to this page mad but; peeps need to stay away from anime. It is cook that it gets them drawing, but the style is pretty much dead in the water. Very few artists grow it and they all learned how to draw other things before they came back to do that.

If you seriously wanna grow as an artist, do drawings from life. See what is really there and not what you 'think' is there. Then, if you decide you want to take on the style of anime and manga; go back to it! But go back to it with all the knowledge and technique you learned doing other things. There is a TON to be learned out there and most of it is outside the canonized styles. Anime is the easy road out and lets face it, there are millions of people doing it. And what will get you is, most of them do it better because they drew from real life first!

Just my two cents, you certainly don't have to agree. XD

Apologies for the drop in posting. I have been taking myself back to basics, taking more time, paying more attention. Hopefully it results in better work!

I am sort of taking myself back to school in a sense. The works you will likely see posted will be closer to my comfort zone as I really establish some style and work outward from there. I want to grow, but I want to make a more deliberate effort to do so. 

For now, I am starting with some basic gray-scale and line. Then I may begin adding sepia tones and such. I need to start integrating what I am good at (lines) into the things I am less good at (color). That's the plan anyway.

Sorry to those who sent me a Fav or are now following me that I didn't get to comment on. I have been a little distracted and haven't been following my comment stream.

Your contributions are appreciated! I try to look at and comment on anyone who tosses me a Fav (honest critique, not just a hand wave) but I have fallen behind. I'll try to keep up.

For those of you who added me to your watch, I promise I will stop by your gallery soon! Some personal stuff has come up and I haven't been able to work (thought I plan to start again!). I always like to drop by and give what critique or honor I can. Normally I do that for any likes as well, but I am crazy behind at the moment with all this. I am afraid the likes/favorites will have to be skipped over for now. 

In the future I'll try to be more on top of it so I don't get all backed up. Thank you all for your support!

HR Geiger died today. Good bye, sir. You will be sorely missed. You gave us a good look at some amazing stuff and in the process created one of the most iconic creatures of all time.
