I swear it is purely coincidental that the majority of these posses a firearm or other potentially lethal item...I swear! The red is also a coincidence. These are in order they were done, the tribal woman being the earliest. This concludes my big update of some of my past works, anything posted from here on is new stuff!

Yeah I got bored of fruit pretty fast, so next I moved onto a few still life's, and this skull. I don't really like the skull, not enough definition in general and some edges turned out hazier than I wanted. Oh well, a lesson learned and onto the next piece.

So after I was done my portfolio I couldn't seem to pick up a pencil anymore. After losing hope with my digital paintings, I decided to stop doing complicated illustrations, slapped myself, and got to the basics. The following batch of posts will show my progress in the last month and a half, compared to my first five or so paintings which were done within a 2-3 year time frame. I cannot stress enough to anyone who wants to get into digital art to start off with simple subject matter and practice rendering. It will save you a lot of time and frustration. Anyways enough of my blabbering, here are my first set of studies, just plain old fruit.

So now that you've seen what NOT to do, this second attempt is a bit more in the right direction. It's not perfect but I felt it was a good improvement, and thankfully the portfolio evaluators thought so too.
