Hello, ShadowStalker here. I've been drawing for most of my life, though I've only recently begun to look at art as a way to make money. I've been painting digitally for only about a year or so, but my normal medium is pencil and paper. I am considering going to school for art, but in the meantime I busy myself with studies of anatomy and character art. I've really only ever drawn characters, but I'd like to get into environments and creature design.
The purpose of this thread is to have one location where I can "showcase" my sketches and open them up for comments and critique. All of these images are original works of art either from imagination or observation. Some of the photo-refs used were taken by myself or my wife. For those of you who are artists, technical critique is welcomed. For those of you who are not, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the image (composition, weakness, strengths, mood, etc.). What I do not want to hear, is pointless criticism and/or harassment about my work.
