It's fantastic to see your thread up! Great to see all your work collected together ~ wow, when seen as a group, it really has a lot of impact.

It would be great if you could tell everyone a bit about your art training and background. Also, I encourage you to post all of your OFDW work here as well. You're more than welcome to post WIP to your own Anatomy Thread.

forgot the art background thingy.

um, i guess i started doing art seriously about 5/6 years ago, roughly speaking, before that i hadn`t really done any art except for my school years, a long time ago, too long . i was doing a lot of computer art in my spare time and someone suggested that i do some conventional art, pencils, charcoal, that sort of thing, as he said it would improve my art in general, he wasn`t wrong. as soon as i started to just draw, anything really, i was hooked and decided to spend as much time as i could drawing.
as an aside i haven`t had any formal art training as such, except for some life drawing sessions.
i moved on from that into oil painting and then, ironically, back into the digital arena, an area i left some time ago, with a much better understanding of art in general, although this time i worked in the 2d area (instead of the 3d art i used to do, bryce, truespace, max, that sort of thing) using photoshop and painter.
i guess that`s pretty much it, for my art story anyway. i`ve included 3 examples of my art below in the 3 areas that i mentioned above; pencil, oil, digital.

No problem, it was great to take a look at your website! You have a lot of good work there, and a lot of potential to do some really great work. IMHO I think that the main thing you need to work on is getting more value range and 'punch' into your works, and also introducing your own personal themes into your images ~ would love to see you do a series of self~portraits or portraits of people with whom you are familiar. I think that you have good observational skills that might be taken to the next level if you can work from life and really punch up the emotional kick of your images. Looking forward to seeing your progress here!

rebecca: cheers, the personal theme area, stuff like the oil painting above (a friend who posed for me) entitled 'Lost in Thought' and an idea i took from inception to completion, is the area i`m aiming for now, i guess you have to go through all the other stuff to enable you to complete your own ideas and themes....i`m also getting involved in the arts in my local area (local exhibitions and things like that) and starting to move into the galleries and all that have to start somewhere and that is almost always at the bottom in the arts, getting your foot on the first rung and all that jazz.....i enjoy doing my doodles which i want to develop, start getting more colour into them, illustrative and qwerky i guess you could call them, keep developing them, maybe do more conceptual art.....mine is a somewhat multipronged attack lol, if attack is the right word, doing some oils on a sky theme, my concept doodle stuff, and other ideas as well.....and i still have to hold down a job and do all this in my spare time.....i have a greater appreciation for all those who have to do that now......i want to keep constantly challenging myself and pushing myself to do better....

anyway, thanks for looking and the advice.....

Oh my, you blew me out with all these works. I like the crazy pencil ones. Not really a style I'm into doing myself but I'm always having pleasure watching others do stuff like that and with a great amount of quality. i love the sorolla head study, the colors are awesome. Damn, I've started drawing seriously only when I've joined this forum. Not to mention that I was going to an art school, I wasn't doing much much time wasted...

I'd love to see more work from you! In pencils, oils and digital media Yeah, I want everything!
