Sometimes I draw new concepts and sometimes I draw animals and fan art.

Thought I'd share some of my Inktober submissions here.
Inktober Day 5 - Long (Hair & Beard)
RE: Something is just not right with this piece I did, but idk what.
Love the colors and composition.
I believe you can get better results if you blur every thing that is not the focus and reduce the contrast.
Eyes are too big and face very symmetrical. a few changes will make it look more organic.
RE: Is going to Art school REALLY that important?
@cjones I went to art school and even though I wasn't in debt, I still was in a very terrible place financially for a while after graduation. My school didn't offer any computer classes and it took me a while to have enough money to buy what I needed and to learn those skills. What I am trying to say is that you can go to art school and still not be market-ready.
If you heard of Lois? Also goes by the name Loish.... She was in art school too but wasn't happy there and switched to a different one. The art school she went to at first wasn't offering what she was looking for. So that's another issue you could have faced going to art school. It can slow you down or make you even hate art.
Learning online gives you the rare chance of learning from different teachers without restrictions and focus on what you need.
This is not to say I am against going to art school... I just want to say that going to art school is not a guarantee of success.
