Forest alien by HeliacWolf
Forest alien
Little speedpainting of an alien. I did the sketch a while ago and I actually wanted to push this to a more finished illustration originally...but in the end I felt like just going with a "sketchy" painterly look. Lately I'm not into rendering things  :D

Hello! I have recently browsed through your art and I find them amazing! As a beginner artist I am currently learning how to draw and you mentioned that an artist should be able to draw anything. I was wondering what can give me the best start (pencil and paper of course!) and what should I focus on (What would you work on first if you were a beginner?). Your response will be greatly appreciated oh and If you're wondering I prefer to learn by myself as my last teacher was... rather aggressive to put it nicely.

Hi! Thank you very much! I'm happy that you liked my art. 

I'd say the best thing to start with is fundamentals- perspective, anatomy, color&light, composition... Yes it can be very boring, but it's definitely important to have a solid drawing base. Apart from that I'd recommend to  work on your visual library. Reading books, visiting places and museums, watching documentaries and things like that will help you to improve it. 

Hope that helps! 

Good luck with art! Just remember to practice as much as possible. Draw every day... even a little. 

P.S. It's sad to hear that some art teachers are really impatient and aggressive. I had a few teachers like that and they can be rather discouraging. Learning on your own, though, will be harder, as you won't have anyone to correct your mistakes. Harder, but not impossible))

Thanks for the reply! I try to find the time to practice but stuff like school, babysitting and chores take up like 9/10 of my day so trying to practice can be very claustrophobic. Yeah my art teacher really made me very uncomfortable and it was hard to be around him every art lesson also his expectations of the finished product didn't help either as I seemed to lack imagination and basic drawing and painting skills. I'll be sure to work on what you recommended.

I know what it feels like! I've got university, day-job and some other things that take up a lot of time! 
Good luck!

Your artwork is very beautiful! It's quite inspiring - you're three years younger than me and you truly motivate me to do my best :) Congratulations on your DD as well! You've got a bright future ahead of you! :D

I really love your work.
A while back I asked if you would please consider joining my website.  Don't remember ever getting a response.
There really is no effort or costs required on your part.   All you have to do is let me know what pieces you would like for me to offer to the public, and I will do all the uploading for you, and also create your personal gallery. 

I will cover the cost of printing and shipping your art to the winning customers, and in return I will take 50% of any profits made off sold work.  I will send you the remaining 50%.  It is possible for you to keep 100% of any profits made, but then you would have to be willing to cover the production and shipping costs.

I would be honored if you would let me provide prints of your work to the pubilc.  I know they would love a lot of your stuff.

hiyya!))

Thanks a lot for the offer, but sadly I must reject it. Most if not all of my pictures are usually done with an intent of viewing them on the screen, meaning I draw them all in 72DPI. I'm afraid I just don't have any pictures that would be in a suitable for printing 300DPI resolution. That's also pretty much the reason why I don't have any prints available on DeviantART either... :(

Sorry and thanks so much for the support!

oh darn :( :( :(
yeah we probably could not offer very large prints at 72dpi

oh well, keep up the good work.
maybe keep us in mind in the future. ;)
