LOL LOL

That's some of the best art I have seen to this day!

If it wasn't that you signed it (in a very artistic manner, I might add), I would've had difficulties believing that a soldier could do that.

Blimey, lad. What are you doing in the army anyways? You should've been a full-time artist! Unless you're the guy who makes drafting posters. LOL

:D

Yo!

I have a hard time reconciling my creative side with my regimented side to be sure.  I have had limited success in selling a couple of pictures here and there, but 1.)  I have no idea how to effectively market myself 2.)  I have no real formal training 3.)  I don't have a whole lot of time due to my day job and family.  I retire from the military in 3 years and will persue my hobbies a bit more fully.  I love to create more than to destroy.

If you have more drawings, please make a topic here and show us them LOL

As for marketing yourself, you could actually try to approach game producers, show them a portfolio, and ask if you could be a background artist. That picture is very dreamy and amazing, and a lot of games needs people to create such backgrounds. :D

Yo!

Lets just go over to his house and pay him. (Or his barracks, as he's in military service)

HOLY CHRIST!!!! OMG


*checks time stamps*

Request made: 06:34
Finished "draft" shown: 09:28

That's less than 3 hours of work! I couldn't have made that in less that a day myself - and that would be literally copying someone elses art with a pencil. You made it yourself!

That's amazing.

You, sir, are an artist! :P

Yo!
