You're so talented !!
I really love how you did the flames ! That's such a nice job :)
Are you also participating in this month challenge ? :)
It's not that impressive actually. Literally anyone can do this:
Just 3 layers of white, red and orange + some smudged squggly black lines :p
It's all about the dynamics and whateer feels natural with fire.
I find the lighting of the scene to actuallybe more important that the depiction of the flames themselves.
Looking back at the last month - I really should have entered the open category with this.
CURSE YOU LACK OF SELF ESTEEM!
I did feel a stab in the guts when Jazza adressed keeping the beginner zone nice and accessible in this month's video :X
Yes indeed, I'm going to be participating in this one too. I shall probably submit it by the end of the week.
It's going to be a Hairy Professor in the Maze with Demonic Altar, but SHHH O_-
It's a secret!
This shouldnt be in the beginner category. Amazing work man!
Thanks for your kind words.
I feel kinda conflicted about this whole affair too. The thing is - I've really honestly drawn like twenty, maybe thirty things in my lifetime. I've only been drawing for the course of the last year, but creative impulses were irregular and far between. I've watched a bunch of educatinal vids, tried to study "the workings" of how to approach drawing as a process. I may be on the right track, but honestly - I just dont have the milage yet.
Even in this piece I can point out a whole bunch of mistakes that can be corrected or worked on, and in comparison to what people submit to the open cathegory - this one has a long way to go to be anywhere near as peculiar.
Yes, I've seen a few works in the open cathegory that I considered to have surpassed with this piece, but also a number of drawings in the lower bracket that are just as good if not better than mine.
Having said that, I did try to go all out and had fun doing it, but I'm still a beginner after all - so that's my reasoning for submitting to this cathegory.
I definitely aim to upgrade from being a n00b in the future though.
