Very interesting concept Ozgais. One thing I'm curious on though is the object that is just to the right of the ship in the background; what is that?

I also highly recommend that you start learning some anatomy. It will make your 2D art alot better.

Anyway, here is a piece I did a while back but have been to lazy to post. Another Julia Roberts portrait. let me know what you think.

I had a portfolio but I dont know where it went. The only drawings I have left are tattooed on my body!!! bummer...I will try to find my file...I didnt even know this thread was here!! Thanks Joey for the link

cheers bullet

Edit: after reading the banter about artistic talent/learning etc...I am puzzled. I have heard of the right brain/left argument too. So what am I...I lean towards math etc (I do it for a living as a Surveyor) and I was extremely good at math in school. BUT I can also draw really well (IMO) although I havent done it for ages. I am NOT alway good at free art (concept) Im lazy, but I was REALLY good at reproduction art (ie copy and scale correctly nearly any image).

IF I had more time I COULD learn to be a better artist so yes I believe you can learn..some people are born with it. BUT I get to this...what is art??? Somebody who cant draw MIGHT be able to build a car with his eyes shut...to me that is also an artform..just not drawing. Maybe the artist is within us all...just some people do it differently??

Cheers bullet

Yes, I do a complete sketch, or portrait on paper, then I take it into photoshop to color. But it doesn't just stop with color. I do quite a bit of smoothing and other edits to the sketch until I get it they way I want. I actually spend more time tweaking anatomy more than anything else.

That Julia piece is still a WIP. I have made alot of changes since I last posted that here. Here is a sample of what it looks like now. I have been burnt out on it for a while. Need to finish it and post it.
