Brandon Pilcher's Dinosaurs, Fantasy, and Sexy Ladies

I have loved to draw ever since I was five years old (I'm almost 23 as I type this OP). My favorite subject matter are dinosaurs, fantasy and historical characters, and nubile women. Unfortunately, as much as I enjoy my hobby, I cannot shake off the sentiment that I suck at it. Laypeople normally enjoy my drawings, but professional artists who know their craft tend to have a more critical attitude, even going so far as to say that I lack basic drawing skills. I suspect they are right and that I am doing a bunch of things wrong, but don't know what those mistakes are and how to stop making them.

Anyway, here's a sample of my most recent work; honest critiques appreciated:

Image
Jungle Huntress

Image
Jesus Christ, the female Egyptian Pharaoh Hatshepsut, and a Tyrannosaurus rex

Image
Hatshepsut again

Image
Tyrannosaurus rex ready for a nap

Image
Julius Caesar with Cleopatra VII

Image
Hebrew warrior with Egyptian Pharaoh

Image
Triceratops horridus

...nothing wrong with big big booties! As for improving, as long as u enjoy it that is the key thing before everything else. I'd rather draw poorly and love the process than draw well but hate the process! :mrgreen:

Hatshepsut X Alexander the Great

The Egyptian Pharaoh Hatshepsut and the Macedonian conqueror Alexander the Great may have lived centuries apart, but little things like chronological accuracy need not get in the way of a good interracial shipping. This also marks the second time I've drawn Hatshepsut from behind.

Another female Pharaoh’s portrait, this time a side view. I understand that I've done a lot of female Pharaoh drawings lately, but I wanted to experiment with a different angle and inking technique. Plus, ages must have passed since I last colored any drawing.

This isn't meant to represent any particular individual from real ancient Egyptian or Nubian history, but she can if you want to.

Re: Brandon Pilcher's Dinosaurs, Fantasy, and Sexy Ladies

To be honest, from what you've said so far this is a hobby to you, something in which you find fun and enjoyable! You shouldn't feel like you have to improve because people are whinging at you! If you would like to progress this is the perfect place to start, however if you're happy with your hobby and your talent so far then just do what feels right!
There are far too many different aspects of art, these pictures look more along the lines of illustrations to be found in books which is never a bad thing!

If you want a quick tip on how to help make them a little smoother I suggest using an ear cleaner (q-tip) and gently rub it over the drawing to smoothen things out, either that or you can buy blending knubs from any art shop for cheap! Also paper is just as important as the drawing, papers come in different texts and can really benefit you! I hope this helped, keep having fun!
Treat others as you'd wish to be treated.

Re: Brandon Pilcher's Dinosaurs, Fantasy, and Sexy Ladies

Sorry I haven't revisited this board in a long time, but I'm still drawing as always. Lately I have been playing with a set of Copic markers I bought over a year ago but never got around to putting to good use until now. Here's some of what I've produced with them:

Image
This is supposed to be a dragon, but his design was influenced by dinosaurs and modern-day reptiles. He doesn't breathe fire though, as that would singe his mouth!

Image
Spinosaurus, the largest theropod ever found, which probably ate mostly fish and smaller dinosaurs

Image
Obese, cartoon-style Triceratops who has eaten too much jungle undergrowth

Image
The female Egyptian Pharaoh Hatshepsut (one of my major muses just in case you haven't already noticed) hangs out with her Hebrew slave Mikha'El

Image
This woman's headdress was based off Nefertiti, but the facial features were drawn using an online photo of some pretty Congolese lady as a reference. It's meant to represent Nefertiti's as-yet unknown mother.

Image
Pharaoh Hatshepsut again, this time looking peeved in her palace

I can't see any of the drawings - anyone having the same problem? Maybe it's just my browser? Using chrome here :)

Re: Brandon Pilcher's Dinosaurs, Fantasy, and Sexy Ladies

I really like these cartoon drawings. I envy your ability to create images from your mind! I always have to use some kind of reference photo when I draw, so this type of work always amazes me. Like others have mentioned before, don't feel pressured to change your style. Your art is definitely well respected! Great job.
