:eek:Hi everyone, my name is Julio Caicedo. Im new to the ArtRage site and Ill really appreciate if you can give me your thoughts on the paintings I just posted.

Julio, Where are they posted?
The normal place to post them is either on this section or on the gallery section. They will get the most replies here.
All you have to do is go down from the text screen and download them in that section. After they are downloaded, preview them and then submit them. I am sure you will recieve many pleasant critiques.
Also, welcome to the group.:):):):):)

Sure he can. He just needs to use the attachment manager at the bottom of the post box to upload the images to AR site itself, instead of trying to hotlink them.

Hi guys!!

Thanks for your kind words, the upload its kinda tricky, nevertheless I managed to post several paintings on the gallery section. I cant do the same here....:confused:.

Thank you Matt for your kind words, If you have anything to show up, Id love to give my 2 cents....Im far from being a pro..but Ill do my best.

Just saw "GIANT STEPS" and really love it. I was hooked by the contrast of the character against the totally black background. That was intense.

Ok, finally managed to upload a picture....ufff...please your opinion will be most welcome.

Same as you buddy, I just like to paint, its a great hobbie for me...Ill be glad to see your work.

Well, I tried a lot of stuff on the beggining, you know trying to paint in a way that actually made sense....then I discover NOIR art...and basically thats what Im pursuing.

I bought a couple of books

How to draw Noir Comics (the art and Technique of visual Storytelling by SHAWN MARTINBROUGH.

Drawing Crime Noir for comics & Graphic Novels by CHRISTOPHER HART.

I used those 2 books for basics, then I foud I cannot draw like them...but I fell in love with the challenge of only using BLACK AND WHITE (and anything in between)....

So basically thats what I do....as far as inspiration...well...I do read a lot of fantasy books from authors such as.

Patrick Rothfuss
Joe Abercrombie
Susanna Clarke
Brandon Sanderson
George R.R. Martin
Neil Gaiman

Hey Matt,

Ive just posted a couple of drawings in the 9 Oclock section...Ill be glad if you check them out.

The ones here look pretty nice. I was going to suggest adding a bit of color but, you explained why you didn't.
Keep it up.
( I usually don't go to the after 9 section. Too young.):):):):):)

I really like the style! Very dramatic. :)

Thank you both Squirls and Raybrite.

Raybrite what are you talking about?? youre still a pup my friend...nevertheless, I thank you both once more for your words of support. If you see anything that can be improved please let me know.

In fact, Raybrite, here is something with a little color. I call it "Winter Night"...as I mentioned before I dont know what to do with so many colors and I trend to add too much of it and lost focus of what Im trying to do.

Hi Matt,

Yep, as I mentioned...less is more....and grey, white and red works incredible.:D

There is a rock band called "THEM CROOKED VULTURES" and the cover of their album uses this type of conbination, its really good looking and dramatic if know how to use it.
