Your mechanical drawing is very nice. It reminds me of the doodles my brother use to draw with such straight, sharp edges and lines. I am always envious as my lines are always curvey..

There are some very interesting designs in the mix. Great illustration concepts and landscapes. I think you have a great future in conceptual designs. .. I am really curious what would happen on a tablet/digital.

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, I don’t have any plans to buy a drawing tablet in the near future. Not sure how well I’d be able to work without the friction between pencil and paper - might give it a try though.

And hell naw, your art is miles better than mine. I’m just a hobbyist who occasionally sketches stuff.

I never considered the paper texture, but your right, there is a difference there. either way i think your traditional art is very good.

I am and ok artist but my landscapes and technical work like this are just not up to par. Different talents for different people :3 Also I am a hobby artist too lol i just.. sketch every day anymore because it keeps me calm and give me something to do.
