Studying jets a bit more in-depth now - I find it's much more useful to learn about the things I draw and how they function rather than just copying them. That way I can reuse that knowledge for my own designs. F4 Phantom 2 in brown ink.

I mean holy shit, she's worked for #Blizzard so expect some amazing posts! 😱
Today I took a beautiful sketch by my friend Simone (https://twitter.com/Simonemaendl) and repainted it in VR - here's a little look around. All design credit goes to her.
It's truly amazing to stand right inside a painting and become part of the world you just created.
One of the most effective ways to improve your figure #drawing, proportion, posing and gestures is to do quicksketches. They range from 30s to 2min, giving you no time for details. All you can put down is the essence of the pose.
#Ink is especially useful here since there's no erasing, so you learn to make confident marks and get it right the first time. Quickposes.com (nsfw) is a good site.

Talent is a myth.
Don't let anyone tell you that you're not "gifted" enough to do art. All it takes is patience, focus and discipline, and those can be trained.
Look for the right teachers and learning material, surround yourself with artists better than yourself, and generally work a shit ton - you can make it.
I find the right location where my free hand sketch fits into the grid, then enlarge that part and get constructing.
Once the basic shapes are there I hide the construction and begin to detail, looking at my reference. From then on it's just patience.
