    Wow, impressive work!

    I've done a few paintings myself, but I tend to give them away so I'll have to do a tour and snap some photos of them before I can brag on here..

    Thanks, man. I'm just a lowly insurance agent with dreams of going to art school.

    I did these with Sketchbook Pro

    First attempts at digital painting. Some of the stuff I've seen is amazing - I have no idea how they rock it like that.

    Very impressive Dion. I used to be really into sketching and painting but just kinda stopped as I got older. My problem was always that I couldn't seem to create anything from my imagination, I have to be able to see what I'm drawing/painting.

    Thanks

    Hoping to get a set of oils this upcoming holiday to start dabbling in that a bit.

    Awesome work guys!!! I did all the art classes through grade school. My talent was really good but I just didn't have a drive to use it as a career.

    I don't draw anymore, I was a free hand sketcher. I do have some very nice art pics here at home but if I posted any of them here, my wife would be both pissed off and embarrassed...

    That's pretty much where I stopped. I hate hand drawing/painting. But I'm pretty good on the digital side.

    I also enjoy doing extremely precise reproductions and re-designing a product.

    But painting never clicked right in my mind enough to create something viable regarding color tones and technique.

    I dont know how much of this is "art" persay but I really enjoy creating things in the livery editor on Forza Motorsport 4. I really wish a few more tools (like a freehand erase tool) but I spend way to much of my free time on it anyways. Heres a decal I created to look like a 3d chromed emblem.

    These drawings are the only ones that ever made me money. I actually have the original marker pen drawings I used when I pitched the design.

    cool stuff, everyone.

    I have never been all that good at drawing/painting. I wasn't half bad working with clay back in high school when I took a ceramics course.

    I have no idea what would be involved with getting access to a kiln nowadays.

    I was always better at music, but I haven't done it enough lately. once I finish this degree, I want to pick it up again.

    I really like the diversity in your art, very different styles applied. From the hugely colorful clown to the minimalistic mom and child is quite a stretch.

    I'm really jealous of your backgrounds, it's so hard to make them interesting, striking the balance between being too unison and boring and being too crazy and distracting from the motive.
