I'm usually not the sort to showcase my art, but I'm trying to break that habit and get it out there.
Plus, having a thread means I can post some of the stuff I don't feel deserves to be in the Art Portal, so there's that!
I'll be sure to post my new works as I make them.
Right then, let's start this off with the more serious stuff, in this case studies.

Study of the painting "Shy Peasant", by one of my favourite artists, Ilya Repin.
(Sorry about them all being studies so far, it's mainly what I've been doing to try to get better)

Awesome stuff man, I was quite impressed with your contribution to the selfportrait collab and I see the rest of your work is easily as awesome. Good to have you sharing your stuff in the forum, feel free to post wips here too, should be interesting.

Big thumbs up to you :)

Oh hey! Thanks again for including in that, you did a great job making that.
Which reminds me, I guess I should include my self-portrait here too.

Ah, I thought I had seen this style look familiar.
Glad you made your own thread, this stuff is awesome.
And I'm crazy impressed by the reflections on the armour, you nailed the composition of the reflection.
Looks so realistic :O

Hey, I recognise Death of Marat, by David. Just wanted to point out I actually remember stuff from my art-history class. :P

Anyway, your stuff is really amazing. A lot of war and armour based drawings, which I can appreciate. :D
Do you also make real-life paintings? (With actual paint) or only digital ones?


Try not being a bitch for once, huh?

Don't really know what this is, didn't know when I was making it either.

As for original works, I've lately taken a shift from OC to study and improve, as I was not satisfied with what I was doing.
So most of my new work are studies, but I guess I'll post some of my silly original stuff.

Man, I love how you draw metal. Great realism. But I think it's great that you can also transition to a super cartoony style. Nice range. Keep it up.
