I am exciting to see your work, which reminds me of my childhood when dreamed to be a artist. Good luck.

Been an artist since the 60's when I used to draw a lot. These day I don't have that much time to do the stuff I'd like to.

Here's a few links to some of my published SF Covers:

Here's some of my work. I'm a professional concept artist and 3D character sculptor and I also do some art directing. I do a mixture of traditional and digital, 3D and 2D. Hope you like them.

I draw and paint as a hobby... but one that pretty much pays for itself. I seem to sell fairly consistently at science fiction con art shows. If you want to see some of my stuff, you can pop over to the "Classic Horror Film Board", go to the Art and Comics subheading, and check out a thread titled "Just a few sketches."

I hope this works.



That didn't work, so here is the link to my newly created photobucket account:

tell me what you think. I'd like to see your artwork too!
You know what I think MRQ1701 but I'll say it again.
This is very very competent work. I know the scan doesn't do this just. That's just how pencil can be with scans but I can judge the lines and the amount of distortion in the drawing from what you drew from (memory or picture.)

There is very very little visual distortion. It more tan adquately accomplishes the realism you were seeking and the nature of the pictures undefinable lines makes that difficult. The dept is apparent as well by the use of shading.

Both of these factors exemplify that you have acute visual and depth perception in the ability to translate that through the hand to a artistic medium. The ability to translate also shows tactile control. Depending on how good this control is, you might be profficient in any medium.


I encourage you to continue to develop the skills. Practice something every week. Post it here and show your work. I assure you it is an activity you'll never regret and you will have with you no matter what life throws at you.

Between the ages of about eight and twenty (I'm 28 now) I used to fill up sketchbooks with cartoons and comic strips with my own range of characters. Then I started writing stories instead and have since published a couple of short stories and have completed (but not yet published) two novel-length stories.

But I still have all of my sketchbooks and go through them every now and then. I don't mind admitting I get amazed how much a lot of it stills holds up!

I've been drawing portraits since I was very young, only in pencil though. Colour has always frightened me because it's always harder to correct your mistakes when you're using colour pencils.

Last year though, I discovered digital painting. I bought a Wacom digital tablet and I love using it. Now I can use colour because I can correct my mistakes over and over again and it doesn't show! It's a lot of works but really fun.

Here's a few paintings I've done over the past year or so.

It does look digital very well done.
It does look difficult to control. That's why I still draw potraits on paper.
