    Thanks, yes graphite to paper nothing special probably a standard pencil. Hendrix, sketched from a - if I can remember correctly, pic of him in guitar world? This would probably be the extent of my drawing skills.
    Your pieces and brolairs on display in this thread are very nicely completed. Shading has very good 3d realism.

    This came out a little lopsided but here we go. Did this probably 5.5 years ago doodling at work (those were the days). Graphite to graph paper, I also utilized cross hatch shading.

    Damn, no pic again bro. You said earlier on another thread that you are hosting them on Google Photos, have you checked the photos properties so you can share them on social media? (I don't use google photos).

    PS - Thanks for the compliment on my works... I'm trying to make my living out of this...

    Are you referring to the last skull pic I posted in this thread not showing up? I will look into the sharing properties, thanks for that lead. Im seein it here tho currently...unlike the bridge pics in my build thread wich for some reason don't work. Maybe a pic per thread limit on here? IDK.

    Definitely nice pieces. Are you an art teacher? Maybe graphic designer? Degree in the arts?
    Is it a dream of yours to make a living off of your art, or something you just ended up doing?

    It's my academic education, as said earlier, Degree in Painting, Master in Drawing, PhD (in process) in Descriptive Geometry... I've been an art teacher, a Draftsman, a Designer, a painter, illustrator, photographer... so many things already...

    Yep, the "skull" doesn't show...

    @mikernaut That's some portfolio. Very very nice stuff you got there. Please feel free to post your stuff here, there is no derailing in sharing images that you created. I called this "The Painting Thread", but didn't specify what techniques are involved, and I have already posted some drawings. Bring your best or worst, contribute and we all will grow with it. Share a few words about "context", "how to" or technical details. I can see you're a Scy Fy illustrator for video games and you work mostly with 3D software. Please, say more of you.

    Thanks for the kind words odibrom. I'm actually more 2d still. I just painted the textures that were applied to the 3d models. I currently don't have a hosting site to post "3rd party" images in forums :/ since Photobucket screwed all their users over and won't allow it now.

    This thread is awesome. Loved the stuff I've seen so far.

    Here's something I made a few years ago. It was inspired by a paper I read on how bacteria use chemical gradients to move in a specific direction.

    Nice, @DaybridgeGhost, thanks for sharing. Would you like to share how you made it? Looks like computer work... photoshop / painter / similar software...?

    I painted it on GIMP (I don't remember which version, but I think it was 2.6) on a Microsoft tablet. Currently, I use Krita for digital paintings.

    Nice, I like the first of these better, it feels more "mature" and overall a solid drawing... keep them coming...

    I can hardly draw a stick figure! I took an art class and tried still life etc, but no, I don't have the patience for it at all. My handwriting is also illegible and atrocious too. I later turned to fractal art by manifpulating Madelbrot and Julia sets to arrive at my own stuff. It's fun and can be used for ambient and soundscape album art or what not.. I used this type of thing for amibient trippy space jam recording collections. : ) I have literally hundreds of them I made. Let me know if you want to see more and I'll put some more up.
