NEW VIDEO: I Quit MMOs and THIS Happened

Alkan's Art


Recommended Posts

So, art is kind of a big part of my life - quitting gaming and taking action is one thing that will allow me to take it to the next level with much more practice.

Local Motors Competition


Study of Crocodile Eye:


This was done with pencil, but then I used the burn tool in Photoshop to bring out the contrast since it was very faint before.

For a conceptart.org competition:


Study of Frans Hals self-portrait after 3 hours:


Several other portrait studies, each timed at exactly 1 hour, in order of completion:









This is a fantasy/sci-fi humanoid species that's been in my mind's eye for like 8 years:


Mountain with a sort of fortress-like structure carved out of it (done after a few studies of mountains):


Oni (Conceptart.org competition):


Vulture skull study:

Your art looks great and really professional :) I am impressed by how talented you are. I would like to see more of your works, do you have a gallery on websites such as Deviantart? I do not draw myself, but I love browsing artworks on Deviantart, and I remember that you can enable a critique on your work on this portal, so that people could give you some feedback and useful advice. For me, your pictures are very beautiful and stunning :)

Thank you all for your kind words.

@Primmulla I've got a long ways to go before I'm on professional level. Thousands of hours. Professional is stuff like this:


The practice gap between my work and that stuff is waaaay bigger than beginner stuff and my stuff. That level is what I am working to achieve at some point in my life. Part of this process of self improvement and quitting games is that I am equally as passionate about science and music as well. So, I literally have to take hard work on as a way of life if I want to live it in the way I want.
