I need advice regarding multiple areas of my work.
I’m trying to self-teach concept art for quite a bit now and I seem to find it hard to get to the “final concept illustration” part of the workflow. I try doing a propper line art but then without the sketch underlay it doesn’t hold the form of the original plus it looks like as if I badly traced someone else’s picture (I can hold a line and traditionally i can make almost a perfect circle in one swipe. Might be on my (S) tablet I dont have enough space to use my whole arm, just my wrist). I’d also like to know where do I stand on the line from a noob to a pro (number 1-10) and anything else you tell me I should improve I’d be much greatful for.
For the pieces bellow I just cleaned the sketch and tried to colour it in attepmt of a concept illustration. They don’t really have a story background I could work with or just something simple but as far from the Mr. Concept Art clichés like “someone with a huge axe and super heavy armour and pointy ears” or “someone with a gasmask and a sniper rifle call it an apocalypse” as possible.
