I'm Rockmusicjunkie, 18 years old and a self taught artist from Austria!
Since I'm kinda young I don't have much experience or special educations so you could say I'm a self-taught artist.
I started drawing portraits in May 2014 because I got bored
and I liked it so I kept drawing more and more. One day I grabbed my phone camera and started filming myself while drawing Vom Ritchie
, my favorite Drummer, *I play drums* and uploaded it as a Speed-Painting to my YouTube Channel just for fun . I received many positive reactions and this video even reached Vom and he messaged me
This inspired me to do more drawings and upload them on my Channel.
Since I'm a big fan of (Pagan-Metal and Punk/Rock) music, the persons I usually draw are musicians but I also like to draw Disney and Dreamworks Characters or Requested Persons from Movies, YouTube,...
It would be cool if you guys could give me some constructive critique and advice on how to improve my drawings and make them looking more realistic. My goal is to make realistic art or stuff like this: CLICK
*does anyone know how that art style is called? It's kinda dark...fantasy stuff*
I use a normal (cheap) "Cretacolor Studio Line Pencil Set" and now also the "Cretacolor Monolith Box". For black or dark lines I use a "Cretacolor AquaMonolith in ivory black"
I recently also bought myself some good colored pencils: Faber-Castell Polychromos 120
That's all about myself! If you're interested in my work check out my
