Its all just feels like more large media to take over video game outlets to me.... I mean video game journalism? Not the best. Social Networking on consoles? Uh i thought i was playing video games... Buy Doritos get in game content? wat. Google owning a totally user ran video game outlet is not gunna help.
Wow dude. Wow. In just over a year your improvement is phenomenal! Like wow congrats on the hard work! Here's my critiques:
-For digital painting, brush up on your color theory. You newest piece has a good photo realism vibe, but to really own it bring in some of those emotional colors. My favorite thing to do is bring in different color for shades and value (ex in a skin tone for the darkest dark use purple, and lightest light use orange) and it gives it something interesting.
-Find your niche; do you want to draw realism? Cartoony? What are you drawing for? Are you trying to say something with your pieces? Try to answer those questions each time you draw piece you spend multiple hours on. Practice is practice, but understanding your art is another.
-Experiment as much as you can! Draw from life, buildings, people, pictures, animals etc. Draw everything around you that inspires you!
