Ok,so, as you can see I'm new to this forum, and even tho i do draw things here and there in my spare time, I'm not really that much into it, mostly because my creativity when it comes to artistic things is almost zero, even tho my drawing techniques aren't that bad but they are sort of more engineering-ish oriented. :P
What I would like you to help me with is give me an opinion on couple of drawings i have which were made by my friend. He thinks his drawing skills suck but i think they are pretty good and "advanced" considering how much time he puts into improving them, but I'm not really qualified enough to judge, and that's why i need your help
First, here is some relevant info about him: Didn't attend any art schools/classes, mostly draws fantasy stuff(influenced a lot by warcraft universe, and all the artwork related to it), does on average one drawing(similar to those below) every 2-3 months when he feels like it, meaning as i said before that he doesn't spend that much time honing his skills(almost none considering how much average "artist" does). One of the main reasons he doesn't do more work(or something more serious than fantasy/game stuff) is because he thinks his work ain't that good and he isn't really talented.
This one took about 10-12 hour, it's somewhere around 40x70cm.
This one was done in PS. Took about the same time as previous, but he did it in first 3-4 days of being introduced to Photoshop(never even opened it previously), using a mouse.
Now i know its difficult to judge somebodies overall talent based only on 2 drawings, but I'd like at least hear your opinion about them.
Thanks in advance.
