My name is Kurt Ian Ferrer, 21 years old, from the Philippines.

Drawing was my hobby since i was a kid. But i never really progressed beyond drawing super saiyajin goku 3 with his hands behind his back since i sucked at it.
Somewhere 2013, i started drawing in a computer...
i thought people only drew with mouses since having a drawing tablet is unheard of from me. So i thought i just needed a mouse with more sensitivity. But drawing with a mouse proved to be not fun for me so i stopped for a long time.
i didn't draw much with pencils so i didn't learn much and didn't progressed.

Then, with discovering what i can do with a computer, decided to branch out to 3D by 2014. I first started exploring the basics and tried to learn everything at once. I didn't have much expertise from the branches of 3D arts like texturing, animation, sculpting, VFX, etc. but i have general knowledge on what to do. I'm just not good at it.
so i stopped drawing and pursued sculpting my body, meaning i started bodybuilding.

Then, in 2015, i had a drawing tablet i had been dreaming of since i first knew about it. I drew using what knowledge i had back in 2013 including what i learned at 2014. I didn't drew much because i was busy with school and bodybuilding. And i wasn't dedicated to drawing that much that time.

Now 2016, i'm relearning everything again starting from the basics. but this time, one lesson at a time...

i first learned about hiveworshop since december 2010.
After wanting a place to upload my map. i knew nothing much about mapmaking since it was my first time.
There i made friends and even after having my map rejected that kept me from making more content for hive, i chose to stay.
My favorite artist there was -Grendel, who was Ampharos before. He was the best artist for me that time since i knew nothing.

And kept pestering him on facebook everytime he uploads some art, asking what tools he used and such. Later on, he blocked me hahaha
even now, i have never made any content for hiveworkshop but i chose to stay simply because of the people here...



These were drawn using mouse as i haven't used a pentab before


Then by 2014, i branched out to 3D and tried to learn too fast


Starting all over again, i have drawn like it was my first time.
empty your cup, let new water flow in.


First digital drawing using Disney+Anime artstyle, didn't go as i wanted
FiorellaRosso.jpg

First face study
Tried portrait drawing using semi realistic style, didn't go as i planned
Lia.png

Another body anatomy drawing with bird's eye view perspective and light studies
lia2.jpg

Drawn an Asari from mass effect using an asian as reference
Liara.jpg

A model sheet for a character i made, it is what it is. No rendering neeeded
Another model sheet for a character i made. I scrapped it...
A poster art i made for a book i 'was' writing. Now i scrapped it
The Sword Of The World9.jpg

First entry for hive's contest, also first drawing of a scene which, i didn't know i was capable of
Overwhelming odds1.jpg



I never cared much for my traditional arts and most of the best ones were lost. These were only the sketches left...

Now that you've said it, I would really like to see that World Eater of yours again. So here's a request I have, just optionally you can do it or not or even make it better, I'll just give in an idea :D

- The World Eater in your Concept Entry ate the world right? And it came from the sky. How about it will show up on Eath's skies falling down vertically to the ocean. The day should be chaotic and skies are like being teared and rainstorm are appearing from the far sides.
The angle of view could be 180˚ 1st person, looking at the ocean and the creature falling down like a vertical line and appear far from the view.

Its up to you if you want to try this idea or not. Goodluck kabayan :D

haha i'm not a new guy, just a ghost spectating around.

i don't normally draw females before, but then i noticed the difference between males and females aren't really small especially the lips.
my females tend to have male lips before so i'm studying them now. Also they're more pleasing to the eyes and ladies tend to flock around you when you draw in public


UPDATE:

She's beautiful already. But "face test 3" looks better for me - the highlights, shadows and skin are more realistic I guess.

Nice growing gallery here. Keep the good work dude!
thanks! i'll still wait for other's suggestions about her face though :)
@DEAD FiSH suggested she be pale and more redder and have more freckles
@Heinvers preferred green eyes over blue which, i think, is better

edit: time check 3am, last update for tonight! gonna work on it tomorrow :))

And oouuuuuhhh!! that work in progress (the big giant) looks fantastic!!
Starting all over again, i have drawn like it was my first time.
empty your cup, let new water flow in.
o.0 mean your first time is better than mine now o__O And you are recovering too quick!!

hahaha yeah, i noticed. maybe i should just post selfies in here instead? hahaha just joking. And sure! take the template! but you're on your own on how to clean that :) i was having trouble enough with it.

Thanks! but i was having trouble with the composition so i was waiting for critiques from professionals on how to improve it.
Also, yeah you gotta have to start anew. All those things you thought you were doing right? you're gonna have to scrap that. Well, at least for me. Also, studies! just drawing everyday isn't enough, you gotta have to learn which is right and wrong while drawing too! Anatomy studies, Values studies, composition etc etc... still having trouble with light, values,hair and composition so it's still a long walk from here. But unlike from before, i know what i gotta do ^_^ because back in 2013 i just drew and didn't know what to do to improve!

Whoah... awesome works! I'm gonna try to reach your level someday, you the man!
haha hey there, thanks! that was really flattering :D
*_* You mean reach his body sculpting level? Or his art level?
lol
So, are you going to show us more perverted stuff of you? Neat, now that you've been into bodybuilding for some time, you can use yourself as reference (not referring to self gratification).
-lol no
-i do use myself as reference especially the arms

Update:
i forgot to tell you guys that i'm working under an animation studio that works on anime as a trainee
so i'll be updating less content as i work on training myself with animation. The animations aren't really post worthy and are just simple walk cycles and flag waves but after i finish that, back to painting!

another update, i'll be taking sketch requests per person here so i can post them in my drawing requests tab :)

another quick sketch, about an hour or more. I just added some adjustments so that they don't look obvious.
also i noticed when viewed on smaller screens the contrast values make the image look bad.

also another quick one after i was done with Erza, thought of experimenting a new artstyle for a comic i'm brainstorming on

aand another one since people said i look like a pokemon trainer hahaha

it is awesome! looks like i have a Phoenix in my party :)
although i'd like to change that hybrid species aren't looked down upon though and it commonly happens :) aside from that, i'm looking forward to what his character development will be :D

I think it is important for the hybrids to be looked down since it could be the drive for a whole plot, but I don't know what you are planning to do with the history or what is the direction you want to give it, but I already gave you enough material to create a Volume with him (his origins/history) I hope I get credit as a writer :v

of course haha it is a hive community project! everyone will get their own character spotlight :D
lol don't worry about the hybrid dilemma, there's an even bigger problem at hand but i'm keeping it a secret ;) i haven't written the lore yet but it is solid enough :) the pure race thing was supposed to be mentioned in the history books
