Keep Away the Dead by RobShields Keep Away the Dead by RobShields
Just some friendly advice for all you trick-or-treaters out there
Another one done without ref so there are a ton of errors which sucks... 
but I'd rather fail and learn something than succeed and stand still

check me out on Facebook  Tumblr
more work coming soon!

Looks like a necromancer summoning the power of the dead ...
The dark and macabre atmosphere is very well highlighted.
The bright green color is pretty cool, it helps to put the environment in addition to being the only source of light other than the moon.
Outsnanding! n..n

Hi. You're amazing! If you could take a quick second to answer this, you would honestly change my life: What do I physically need to do during practice, each day, to eventually be able to create art like you? How did you learn and become so amazing?!!


Can you please break down exactly what one extremely motivated beginner student would need to do, each & every day when he or she sits down to practice, in order to create these incredible photorealistic 2d digital drawing/paintings?


People just say 'Practice.' But I do not know 'exactly' what this entails. 


Can you maybe make me, like, a list or something?!! So I can then go out and explore those topics? Or at least tell me what I need to physically be doing with my practice time so I can get as good as you? 


If there's any books/DVDs/tutorials you can recommend that totally helped you get better, that would be so freakin' incredible!!!


Thanks for the help!

if you would like to see how I practice just visit my tumblr page.  also keep in mind that you should work on creating your own curriculum because every artists has different strengths and weaknesses as well as different interests.
