My Tribute by Bardsville My Tribute by Bardsville
Here are my favorite artists whom I have looked up to and who has inspired me and hopefully I can achieve their level of success in the future.
From top:

1. Stanley Lau (Artgerm)[link] : I still look through his works in his art book and always has his artwork pasted on my desktop wallpaper. I truly admire this guys' skill. I wish I could paint like him.

2. Kinsun[link] : My mentor. The guy who's always cool and funny and especially patient. He gave a lot of useful advises to me. I wish I could have learn from him more.

3. Bobby Chiu[link] : He's the reason I took my tablet pen and start drawing again. I forgot how fun drawing used to be but with his words and great works, I came back to that path and I'm gonna strive for greatness.

4. Christopher Copeland (Kweli)[link] : I love his line work. It's so different from what I have seen before. It's like, graffiti on a human figure and I love graffiti. I wish I had his outline skills.

5. Todd McFarlane[link] : My first ever favorite artist and will always be my favorite of all time. I've got only a few of his actions figures lined up in my room, can't afford too much..hehe but my cousin has one whole room full of em...errr..envy...haha

I wish I could turn back time and learn more from these great artists, rather than wasting my time, doing squat but I can't. All I can do now is do the best I can and learn more and hope for the best.

~Cheers~

help?
hmmm...just do it?..haha. I'm bad at giving artwork advice...lol but yeah, just do it. Learn speed painting, that should help in quickening the art process. Then later on, you can learn more about the details. I've seen a lot of beginners who spends too long on a nose...haha. At first, there's no shame in copying other people's work and style. It's just for learning purposes. Later on, do your own. example: You copy 2 artworks of the same artist, following his style and all and then create 3rd one, you create your own artwork, your own concept, based on that artist's style. Have a very good understanding on fundamentals. I know fundamentals are boringgggggggg like hell but once you're good at it, drawing becomes more like play rather than work. So, yep...hehe Good Luck :)
