Hey! Great work! The only things I would say would be to keep up the good work. I also have some methods for practicing:

Do master studies of the artists you like. It's a fancy way of saying you trying to copy their work as closely as possible. Of course this isn't for re-selling, and it's very necessary to credit the original, but this is a great way to find new methods of drawing, and thinking about drawing.

Next I'd say I'd love to see some life-studies of objects. I recommend drawing without looking at your paper. Just look at the thing/person and move your arm. I describe this as "feeling" around the shapes. It's not only great for practicing anatomy and building your reference, it will also give you art a new, clean look. Frankly it also teaches me to draw faster.

Hope that's helpful. I love, love, love the cobra, and it's pretty sweet seeing how your art has changed from when you first came around. I'm a huge fan of your compositions.

Hope that's helpful!

God bless.

Have you ever considered trying different methods for coloring? I assume you use colored pencils? The colors look great but they always come out very grainy/pixel-y in the scans you post. Maybe something like markers or colored ink would scan better... I'm not sure, as I usually only color things digitally.

 

Yeah, I've been trying to find an alternate version of coloring in my drawings, but for now, I'm sticking with the colored pencils.

That's an interesting Idea! I actually have tried doing something like this with the art style of the 2003 version of the Clone Wars cartoon, but not with too much else.

 

Anyways, its time for some art!

 

First up, belated Inktober Drawings!:

Next, more Airship Concept Art:

Next, Fantasy Doodles:

 

fantasy_doodles_27_by_dwestmoore-dbuyx5o

 

fantasy_doodles_28_by_dwestmoore-dbuyx95

 

Penultimately, a Demon of Deceit, because I wanted to beat Wolfy/Scorp to the punch on something that should already exist in my fantasy universe:

 

demon_of_deceit__by_dwestmoore-dbuyxft.j

 

Lastly, something I sketched at work and finished at home:

yooo I love the airship and Demon of Deceit a ton. I like the whole "mouth of Sauron meets Clive Barker" vibe.

Captured the cartoon style really well in that last one. Trying out digital coloring?

 

I like the first guy's spear too. Love a good boar spear.

Actually, it was done the way I've done with my Digital Art:

 

1: Draw it by hand

2: Ink it

3: Trace it and Color it in Adobe Illustrator.

 

I have tried out drawing digital more recently though. In this that I made, everything is drawn digitally in Photoshop and then colored in Illustrator.

 

But thanks for checking out my art thread! I like getting comments on my art for once! :D

 

Speaking of which, I made a compilation of my favorite art from this year:

Here's to another year of drawing things, hopefully things requested by you guys.

Thanks for the feedback! I get it so rarely! :D

 

I also appreciate the last Unicorn Reference. I didn't think you knew that Rankin/Bass existed.

 

But anyways, onto the art!

 

First up, concept art for the Chaos Races in my Fantasy Universe:

 

chaos_races_concept_art_by_dwestmoore-dc

 

Next, a Christmas picture I forgot to upload last year:

Next, a Female War Bishop:

 

female_war_bishop_by_dwestmoore-dc21ht3.

 

Next, a Dwarven Centurion:

Lastly, this thing I made in preparation for the solo Han Solo film:

If you want more art, check out this concept art for Le Morte D'Arthur, or these stupid meme videos I made!

Well, I watched a bunch of their Christmas movies as a kid, but not much else. I randomly watched The Last Unicorn on Netflix a year or two ago because I remembered hearing good things about it during the MLP craze. I really, really liked it. I'd put it among my favorite animated movies now.
 

First up, concept art for the Chaos Races in my Fantasy Universe:

These look really cool! But you're not gonna call them Chaos Races, right? I mean, that's kind of our Wulfgard thing. :P Most fantasy settings call them something like goblinoids or ogroids.
 

Next, a Female War Bishop:

Love the armor! Your females are getting better too. Though maybe you could make the chin a little smaller...

You should check out their version of the Hobbit and Return of the King. Not sure if you would like them or not, but if you enjoyed the art style of the Last Unicorn you'll love them for it.

 

Oops, they're actually called the Fell Races. I forgot to call them the right thing. :I

 

Thanks!

 

Anyways, on to the art!

 

First up, fantasy doodles!:

It is from the movie. Legolas kills it in the normal version, and Bofur rides it around in the extended edition.

 

I origionally hated it, but now I love it because of its stupidity. :D

 

Anyways, on to the art!

 

First up, fan-art of an Orruk from Warhammer:

 

waaagh__by_dwestmoore-dc4ho1t.png

 

Next, a Peacock:

I guess I'm just going to be doing an Art update every two weeks now or something like that. :P

 

Anyways, here's some art!:

*sigh* Guess it's finally time to stop being a salt lord.

 

Your drawings have significantly improved with each additional post. For that matter, so has the coloring. In particular, your fantasy drawings have shown a lot of change. Female faces could still use some work, but even those have improved. I'm not exactly an artist (I sure as heck can't draw), but I think the one thing that could definitely help is if you drew more thin faces. Something about the cheek to chin area that kind of throws off your female characters. Again, feel free to ignore me because I have 0% expertise in drawing.

Looking good, as usual, Dalton! :D I have to agree with Nightstalker that your art has come a long way since you started. I'm particularly enjoying your coloring and the way you handle shading.

 

That flamingo in particular looks really good, to be honest. I... don't really have much to offer by way of suggestion, as I'm incredibly rusty in the art scene, myself. But I'm intrigued by this "mysterious venator." Maybe he's who you're signing up as if I ever manage to get those sign-ups started? :P

Thanks! I appreciate your comments on my art, even though legos are more your art medium than drawing. 

 

My female faces are going to take a while to get better. I'm more used to drawing male faces because...well, I'm a guy. :P

Thanks! Suggestions are more meant for what you guys think I should draw, though they can also be for how I can improve my art. 

 

The mysterious Venator is just Cyrus Malcom, who will be making an appearance in this update.

 

Speaking of which, let's get on to the art!

 

First up, here's this stupid thing I made on St. Patrick's day:

 

the_green_swordsman_by_dwestmoore-dc7ito

 

Next, here are some things a friend of mine asked me to draw:

 

bison_by_dwestmoore-dc7itp4.jpg

 

thor__n__friends_by_dwestmoore-dc7itra.j

 

Next, Cyrus Malcom, my latest Errant Character:

 

cyrus_malcom_by_dwestmoore-dc7itql.jpg

 

Penultimately, a Giant:

 

bahadur_giant_by_dwestmoore-dc7itpi.jpg

 

Lastly, the long-awaited drawing of the Dark Maiden and her Children:

 

the_dark_maiden_and_her_children_by_dwes

 

It only took me a year to finally get around to drawing it!

I like that last drawing (although Necros and the Dark Maiden would never be holding hands).

 

For whatever reason, the Witch King's, glowy sword really stands out to me. I like the effect!

Yeah, that was more to symbolize that "Hey, look at all our kids!" even though I'm sure only the tenth was the only child they created. Plus, I wanted an excuse to draw Necros again.

 

Me too! I didn't want to draw it the way I usually draw that sword when I'm drawing lego minifgures, and so I did that.

 

Anyways, on to the art!

 

First up, some stuff I forgot to upload to here:

 

auric_khasim_by_dwestmoore-dc2a6t7.png

Next, a drawing Nightstalker asked me to draw:

 

paladin_vae_v_s__lord_skorn_by_dwestmoor

 

Next, something I made on Easter:

 

jesus__bizarre_adventure__resurrection_c

 

Lastly, the group picture for a Dying Breed:

 

wulgard__errant__a_dying_breed__staring_

 

Wish I had more drawings to upload (because I have three in progress drawings right now) but eh, maybe next update. :P

I think it might be time to abuse that wish fulfiller.

Anyways, yet another round of good art! And yes, only the 10th child belongs to Necros.

Also, is that a Jojo reference?
