I've decided to make my own thread of the artworks that I've made. Whether it's bad or good it's up to you.

While I'm just average at Photoshop, I'm getting really used to it by mouse, can't wait to get me a Graphics Tablet, as I'm also doing pieces by traditional means.
I would appreciate any tips given ^^.

2017 - Okay, so by this time, I've stopped digital and will be unto traditional for sometime. I got mostly a specialty for pencils, but very soon I get to go for inking.

Looks good. I'm no expert on art, so no tips here, but...

1) Out of the dragons, the red one is by far the one I like most :)
2) The Setting Sun environment has this Nagrand-ish vibe to it which I really, really like :)
3) The swords... well, I either like super-realistic/medieval type weapons or over the top fantasy ones and yours are kinda in between - if that's the look you were aiming for, good job :)
4) I'm not much of a fan of modern/technology art, but these seem to look like your earlier work - still, I wish I could draw anything even remotely close to that :)

Anyway, keep working - your work is looking great!

now turn them into icons :D

I feel like you're missing contrast in your pieces. Don't be scared of adding a tad more black shadows and more highlights here and there, it will really help create volume. :)

Thanks, I'll take that in mind :) (Btw, I'm having a thought this might be good as an icon)

I forgot to add this yesterday, Terra Blade from Terraria. This should be the last of my digital pieces for now, I might return back to using pencils again.

Hehe, good to have other pencil artist XD

Now this is somethig that i can critique. Lets see. I tried to mirrir it and find that her head is not balance, and her head is a bit too short on upper side. And her right hair is not natural, it need more dymanic flow. And you might be want to increase eyes size a bit (imo it will be better)

You got potential. I never can make those kind of line. If you wanted to use this style (more to line art), you need to know diferent line weight. "artbyshiji" is a good artist to follow. His style is somethig like yours now. You can remove those chicken scratch line by make the lines wider (not recommended, it will make your drawing looks like kine XD)

Here is some tips: Eyes is darkest area (mostly). try to not use this flat line. You can make the line not connected each other (for example for her mouth, you can draw only the tip and leave the middle without lines (or with super light line))

Damn, seriously, if i had a tablet, i will give you red line right now. Aaannndddd, i really need to improve my writing skillz. hope you understand my lazy critique :p

I don't see this lazy at all, thanks so much :D
I'll definitely take these in mind, while I'm trying to relearn what I know back in the days, do some test sketches and stuff. I'll also take a peek to this "artbyshiji" and see if I can learn something.
Oh yeah, do you have a DeviantArt acc? And see if you have more sketches I can take a peek ;)

I rarely open it and upload there, because that web is not mobile friendly like here and I dont have much time to use my laptop only to upload there.

o.o this one has major improvement. Nothing missed. For now, it's only need some more contrast by darkening the line on some part.
— For the landscapes: Great as usual. The perspective is a bit confusing for me.
— About "Setting Sun" and Blurred Dawn": You should make a super cool sun reflections on water. It will be looks amazing XD (because it have seen a couple of painting looks like those, and most of them have that reflection)

While I'm on some landscaping, my next involves another body of water, so might try your idea. :)

Blue: Whoa. Nice. I didnt realy there are some people there. I only focused on that big thing, try to figure out what is that. Hut adter i saw thise people, i think that big thing is a whale, right?
Plane: This one looks really fresh. Remind me of classic windows XP wallpaper. You might be want to add shadows effect on my plane, like what you did with the clouds.
Last: I am not sure what it is. Also i have no idea about color so i cant say mich. Keep it up

1. Yes, its actually a whale, I made it the focus of the scene, though I should've made the lighting come from the right so that those men can be noticed including the whale that they're hunting.
2. Yeah I was afraid that I'll ruin it after I tried shading (and it really did ruin it)
3. You have no idea XD

Well, thanks so much for the comment, I'll keep the focus and shadings and lightings in mind :)

Again, taking a break from my concept entry, so I made a (little) realistic-like (I guess) Kurusu, from Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress anime. I have a thought in mind, and I'm going to make swordsmen in this kind of style, propably Mihawk will be next from One Piece,

Kurusu Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.jpg

Okay okay enough of that, going back to my concept.

^ what he said :D

Thanks :D

@Idaero Ace

(No way dude, I'm finishing my concept :p)
Well, since you ask, I pretty much followed how @MR. Goblin makes his piece, gather references, draw in diff. angles. Although not the color and shading parts.
As I watch the anime, I saw some really cool angles that inspired me, and so I used those angles as references, and started sketching, there were trials and errors, but I got it right. After the final sketch, like what you did with your drawings, I color it with basic ones. Each in different layers for every colored parts.

Then comes the shading (the hardest part), you can notice some wrong lightings in there if you look closely. I used Dodge and Burn Tools to light it, from what others have said, I began to take note of highlights and really dark shadows, in the Kurusu piece, I made his face and the sword the focus, and so lessen the lightings and blurred a little the rest that are not the focus.

Apparently, my works has the tendacy to not fit in backrounds, Idk though, I may have sharpened my coloring a bit too much without softness. Seeing other pieces and works of inspiration, I still need more practice in softening my work.

Well that was long, but I guess I showed you how I work :D

yeah no, he's just using the same kind of angle... but that's far from being ''uncreative''. When you're doing ''dual'' scenes, there's not a lot of ways to do one that reads well... you always end up with 1 character in the fg looking back and one character in the BG looking forward.

What Edge45 is doing here is that he's being logical.

Indeed, as what I saw through most entries in the concept contest, a character/s are/is all facing an enemy and the enemy facing them.

Well, thanks you two! ^^
I'm changing the giant guy since his watching at a wrong angle, I need to find more preferences, so while the deadline's far away, there won't be much work doing in this entry for now. (Fan-art time!)

There was this group hosting some challenges in FB, decide to join and here was my entry.

Finally have gotten time for Mihawk
First one's a rough sketch, second is the clean one (except for the blade)
Now as I began the shading, I realize the pose doesn't seem good, soooo I'm gonna retry again as I have thought of another pose. :D
