Nechromancer by awesomeplex
Another fantasy illustration. This one from the book Night of the Necromancer. Description sounded like this 

A close-up on the Death Acolyte’s head and shoulders. He is dressed from head to toe in long black robes, his head hooded, his face hidden by a grotesque skull-mask, his sinister eyes visible through the holes of the skull’s eye-sockets. In one hand he is holding up a glowing crystal ball that seems to swirl with internal storm-clouds, the eerie light coming from the sphere reflecting in the acolyte’s eyes.
Made a tumblr site. So if you like my stuff and want to see more processes, sketches and studies. Go to

I will more regularly post there with just school work, traditional stuff, sketchbook pages, process and wip of images. And by all means ask questions or give you guys tumblr, need more cool people to follow:P

Hey there your artwork is amazing! I love your concept design works. What study did you do to get to these paintings I wish I knew how you started to the point where you realize your art is good enough to show people. Did you do a lot of still life before getting into creating your works or you just to talented to even say? Cheers in kind regards.

I think getting your art out there for critic as early as possible is good:) But find places that actually gives critic tho, like art groups, art forums. Places like facebook and deviantart is great, but in the end its more about showing art than actually getting critic and learning. You will be amazed how much other peoples opinions can help you improve. When to start promoting your art is a hard question. First of you need to be comfortable with the level it is at, and at the very least it need to look finished. Dont remember who said it, but a talented artist said that when you can put your art together with other well know artist or professionals and it dont stick out like a soar thumb, you might reached a level that is professional. 

hahahah, no dude, would not really call myself talented. I just did a lot of crappy work before i did the less crappy stuff i´m making today. It is really that simple. You want to be good at character? Cool, then do a lot of characters, compare yours to other artist, see why other artist are better than you, study it and repeat.  Good luck on your art dude and just keep on pushing forward:)
