Into the Distance by SanfroEldolph
Into the Distance
I recently finished Fullmetal Alchemist! It was the first anime I've ever watched (I always thought they would be weird) and it was really, really good! I really like how deep it was, and I loved how it balanced dark and mature elements with humor. The characters were complex and interesting, and I loved that there were so many morally grey characters. Does anyone have any shows that they'd recommend?

I feel like I'm slowly making my shading better, but I feel like it just looks so flat! Does anyone have any tips on how I can fix this? Thanks so much!

Massive Fakemon Improvements by SanfroEldolph
Massive Fakemon Improvements
Round 1: I tried to make them a bit more realistic, because in the originals, the eyes/expressions were just way too cartoony. I messed around with colored shading versus just black this time around. I feel like my shading just looks so soft and plasticky, but yet when I shade with a hard brush, it looks unfinished! Hopefully I'll figure it out eventually. I changed the ears of Phantrunk, because I really didn't like how they went from round hedges to boxy hedges. I tried making the legs look more natural as well! All in all I'm pretty satisfied.

Hey guys, I'm Griffin!
I'm a self-taught artist, and I get inspiration from books, games, and especially other people. My personal motto for art (and life in general) is if you want something done right, do it yourself!

Hey guys, hope you're doing well. I just wanted to share with you some books that I've been reading recently that have really helped me. They're by James Gurney, you may have seen his work in National Geographic or Dinotopia. They are Imaginative Realism www.amazon.com/Imaginative-Rea… and Color and Light www.amazon.com/Color-Light-Gui… Both are fantastic and very informative, and have taught me to look at things differently!

Keep up the good art!
Griffin

Well, it's a funny story! (Actually, no it's not. I wish it were though :p)

I live in Virginia, and back in October I went to Montana, to visit the college I'm going to this fall. There was such a difference in humidity that it felt warm enough to be shirtless, even with snow on the ground!

I plan on changing it, but don't have too many pictures of me that I like :/
